Given the presence of these channels, shorts should only be taken when the channels are violated as shown in the shaded area. I have violated this rule but only when I have seen persistent weakness.
Today’s close of 2105.25 is the highest $SPX close since the close at 2111 in late April which is not immediately apparent as the folks at Trading View use prices to calculate the estimated value of $SPX .
I make this point only to emphasize that no has been made, though it’s possible we will see one at 2111 but this is far from certain. Based upon a quick look at weekly closing prices, other levels of interest include 2116 and 2126.
Both have offered resistance in the past
And because 2025 was a calculated daily , I have looked at daily, weekly and monthly resistance levels from different sources and found clusters around 2110 and 2126. One would support a a 2111 while the other would support the upper end of my price studies.
Today’s price action reflects the prevailing “risk on” sentiment characterizing the market which was rather blasé about OPEC’s decision not to cap oil production, putting firming oil prices at risk. With small caps and high beta stocks outperforming the broader averages, it’s risk on.
Of course all of my sentiment could be washed out if we have an unsettling jobs report or if the British decide to leave the EU, just to mention two of the more obvious risks. And there are countless hazards with China, particularly those dealing with growth and debt.
Thanks for reading and if anyone else has ideas as to where $SPX could max out, please share
