*** Status: Market Bearish – International Funds ***
Subscribe to our free newsletter here. Bearish - Week 8
This week's postings are a bit late due to a very busy weekend. The SP-500 was down -0.41% for the week. International Funds and some Sector Funds are at the top of the Rankings. Bond funds have actually moved down int the rankings. The general market trading filter I use (SP-500 53 day CCI) is now at -7 indicating Market Down, up from -9 last week. The composite SP-500 indicators on the daily chart remain Bullish with the CCI(53) composite Bullish, and the MACD composite Bullish.. The SP-500 is about at the 50 day moving average and still at the recent support/resistance at approximately 1420. The CCI indicators at the right give a good indication of the market indicating we're essentially in a mixed market.
The Guppy Plot for the SP-500 Index has moved to more of a Bullish state with the Fast Moving Averages moving above the Slow Moving Averages. The average slope of the Fast Moving Averages has turned positive and the average slope of the Slow Moving Averages has also turned positive - a good sign. The ADX components is slightly Bullish and the Stoch has moved up, but has now turned down again.
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.
