*** Status: Market Bearish – Bond or Short Funds ***
This week we continue the downward trend in the market finding support at the 200 day MA which also coincided with a major support area at about 1255. The general market trading filter I use (SP-500 53 day CCI) moved down to -163 indicating Market Down which is up from -223 last week. My multiple composite SP-500 indicators on the daily chart are now both bearish with the Blau Ergodic Composite Indicator and the MACD composite indicating a down trend. The SP-500 index is down ~7.2% from the recent May high of 1370. The CCI(53) indicators on the right on this page show are all bearish except for the IEF bond fund.
The Guppy Plot for the SP-500 is now fully Bearish, with the Fast moving averages now below the Slow moving averages. As well as the moving averages fully crossed within the Fast and Slow MA groups (indicated by red and orange coloring). The average slopes of the two sets of averages are both negative. The ADX components are bearish and the Stoch is low.
We’ll see what the next week brings. We don't try to forecast the market here, rather we just monitor the current conditions and react accordingly. I hope you find this blog helpful. If you do, why not leave a comment.
