Bulls have their arguments why to buy every dip and why it wil finally continue to move up. So does the Bears, they have the all kind of reasons to short equity mkt from time to time. I don't know who will be right, or what will be the trigger. I know the only fact is: SP500             has not been trending since Febr/2015.

Weekly:
- Ichimoku setup is turning to neutral: Chikou Span hits past candles, and all averages stay as flat line
Kijun Supprt is at 2060, 100 WMA and trendline at 2020, Kumo (Senkou B) is at 1972
- Heikin Ashi has been mixed in last 5 months. Quick candle colour changes and a zig-zag haDelta around zero line shows it's been a long term consolidation.
- Wouls be bullish again above 2130, bearish biased below 2055-2060, and really bearish below 2000.

Daily:
- Absolutely neutral Ichimoku setup, impossible to trade Ichimoku trend following signals. Flat and thin Kumo, all averages (Tenkan, Kijun and Senkou lines) stay flat together around 2090, which is the equilibrium price now (also middle of trading range
- Heikin Ashi is bearish , with some momentum loss expected for today. Actually it is not that bad to trade the range now with Heikin Ashi candle reversal strategy (and with tight stops).
- Bullish continuation requires a close above 2130, confirmed bearish Kumo breakout and trend break would happen with a close below 2050!
- 200 day MA is under attack again.


Looking at China story, real demand for commodities , the possible FED hike, and the market breadth indicators I am rather bearish biased for long term. Looking at how central policy makers have been manipulating different asset classes, mainly equities , I just can not believe SP500             or stock mkts in general will be very easy to break and turn into bearish ... but who knows, crashes and black swans are never announced in advance.
The prudent way now is to keep small short (and/or scale back longs), and act more agressively when the trend breaks.

SPX500 and USDJPY/GBPJPY: Vix support levels and timing


Easy money...if offered with a dip down to that green zone it's a buy I think.

It is a fckn random walk. I just do not understand what this mkt should get to admit it is likely a bubble.

Maybe the bubble is not yet big enough? But how can be a strong USD and a possible FED hike good for US economy, while China is clearly collapsing, and while also US macro numbers softenned a bit? Good old days, when we called Stock Indexes as the barometer of real economy... that was when mkts did not have (had less) central manipulation.
