Indices

Stock Indices use a portfolio of representative companies (usually spanning major industries) to reflect the status of the whole stock market. There are basically three kinds: global, regional and national. Global indices include companies regardless of where they are traded. Regional indices include companies from a certain region and national indices include companies from a specific nation. Most major and emerging economies have a national stock index, if not several.

Indices are used to get an indication of the market's overall direction. Some analysts use them as a barometer of the underlying economy. Indices can be comprised of tens to hundreds of stocks and each index calculates the weighted average differently. Some weigh the stocks equally (equal weighting), others take company size into account (capitalization weighting) and others use a hybrid method (modified capitalization weighting). Indices are tradable entities that are traditionally traded through stock index futures.

SPX: Monthly 'Time at Mode' analysis

The monthly 'Time at Mode' analysis of S&P500 -0.12% suggests we can top at just shy of the analysts' forecast for end of year closing price. This which would frustrate them to no end, and possibly make them give up and turn bearish , downgrade stocks/reduce the forecast target price, or even turn 100% bearish . That would give us the right elements for a ...

USD INDEX BEARS MIGHT TAKE OVER SOON

If we break higher tonight on the FED Minutes it will probably be some kind of stop hunt above the recent high. I dont think it will be a sustainable move above 101.80, except something really major happens, that turns the sentiment on the USD completly around and makes it super bullish then look for buys above 101.80. But right now i am not seeing this scenario ...

DAX analysis/thoughts for the coming months march-june

After a major surge upwards while closing on the previous ATH, #DAX might be looking to start a major pullback to gather liquidity for a bigger move up for new ATHs. A lot of shorts getting stopped out every day and there are still no signs of retail going bullish. Because of that we might be looking at another stop run before institutionals start taking profit ...
