$4550 Is Critical Resistance For The S&P 500

Two main factors are driving the rally in the US stock markets recently; retail traders buying the dip, and Q3:2021 earnings data is starting to shake away the concerns that resulted in the recent market rotation. Combine these activities with the start of the Christmas Rally phase (which usually starts sometime after mid/late-October and carries through into early January), and we have the making of a moderately strong potential price rally in the US major indexes over the next 60+ days.

The $4550 Level Is Critical Resistance For The S&P 500

I’m highlighting this ES Daily and Weekly chart pattern, below, to share with you how important it is to see the ES break above the $4550 level – the past high price peak. If the markets are going to start a new rally headed into the 2021 Christmas season, then we need to see the ES continue to rally and break above the $4550 level. It is critically important that price breach the $4550 level and attempt a strong move higher if this bullish momentum persists.

The ES has already broken above three previous Stand-out Highs, drawn in MAGENTA. This shows the strength of a bullish price advance and building bullish price momentum. Yet, the final price high, near $4550, is critically important from a technical standpoint. Continue reading "$4550 Is Critical Resistance For The S&P 500"

Crypto Market Cap Hits New All-Time High

Digital enthusiasts should be happy as last week, the total crypto market capitalization established a new all-time high of $2.5 trillion, surpassing the previous top of $2.4 trillion reached this spring.

Crypto

It coincides with the current move in Bitcoin, which is approaching an all-time high. Is it the main coin that contributes the most to pumping the market cap? Let us check it in the next chart of the total crypto market cap excluding Bitcoin. Continue reading "Crypto Market Cap Hits New All-Time High"

The S&P 500 (SPY)

SPY Weekly Chart  - Stock Market Forecast

This week's rally conforms to my forecast nicely from last week.

Nothing has really changed; I still have a lot of bearish readings for the S&P 500, which conflict with the surge of bullish interest that is currently being absorbed.

I still expect the SPY to rally up to retest the all-time highs and break out to the upside. Unfortunately, that breakout would likely be on low momentum, and the odds are high; it will turn into a false breakout. This would set up a classic "Trap trade," as the breakout players all react emotionally to the failed breakout. Continue reading "Weekly Stock Market Forecast"

Platinum And Palladium Update

I put the platinum first as it has a clearer structure. The big map has remained unchanged since 2019; I put it down below to brush up.

Platinum

We are in leg 2 (black) with a completed AB part (next chart). I expected the CD part to start earlier. However, the bullish trigger was left untouched and the market collapsed further down.

Platinum

The third red leg down has hammered the platinum futures price below $1,000 handle to hit the valley in $893. It is amazing how symmetry works here, as all three legs are almost equal to each other. It is a good sign for the platinum as it suffered a lot. Continue reading "Platinum And Palladium Update"
