Safe Investing – Weekend Market Outlook

Market Outlook entering the Week of September 14th = Uptrend in Search of Direction

Short-term (20 DMA): Downtrend
With the exception of the NASD, all the major stock market averages closed the week below their 20-day moving averages.

Intermediate (50 DMA): Uptrend
With the exception of the NYSE, all the major stock market averages continue to trade above their 50-day moving averages.

Long-term (200 DMA): Uptrend
The current bull market [March 2009 - Present] continues.

William O’Neil’s Big Picture analysis continues to indicate a “confirmed uptrend”, while medium and long term uptrends remain intact over at Tony’s Objective Elliott Wave analysis.

The small pullback is underway.  We wait to see if the NYSE can retake its 50-day moving average, or if the other indexes follow the NYSE lower.   Thanks to Tony, we have some key S&P500 price levels to watch:

  1. 1,905 – If we fall to 1,905, the probability of a correction is high
  2. 2,011 – If we rise above 2,011, the probability of a continued uptrend is high

Safe Investing – Weekend Market Outlook

Market Outlook entering the Week of September 7th = Uptrend

Short-term (20 DMA): Uptrend
All the major stock market averages continue to trade above their 20-day moving averages.

Intermediate (50 DMA): Uptrend
All the major stock market averages continue to trade above their 50-day moving averages.

Long-term (200 DMA): Uptrend
The current bull market [March 2009 - Present] continues.

William O’Neil’s Big Picture analysis continues to indicate a “confirmed uptrend”, and we have uptrends across the board over at Tony’s Objective Elliott Wave analysis.

Trading volume rose last week, as expected, but buyers and sellers were evenly matched (as indicated by the market trending sideways).  After the August run-up, we’re due for a small pullback in market prices.  The August uptrend is also the final puzzle piece needed to unlock the long awaited correction…so even a small pullback could easily morph into that long-awaited correction

As always, don’t be complacent, and let the market action drive your decisions.

Safe Investing – Weekend Market Outlook

Market Outlook entering the Week of August 31st = Uptrend

Short-term (20 DMA): Uptrend
At the end of the week, all major averages closed above their 20-day moving averages.

Intermediate (50 DMA): Uptrend
All the major stock market averages remained above their their 50 DMA.

Tony’s Objective Elliott Wave analysis continues to be spot on, calling the market’s new highs last week.  William O’Neil’s Big Picture analysis continued to indicate a “confirmed uptrend”.

The lack of trading volume remains a concern, but is typically of the summer season.  QE 3 is winding down (ends in October), and there are issues with the market’s relative strength.  Trader’s return from summer vacation after Labor Day, which should clear up any remaining doubt about market direction.

Long-term (200 DMA): Uptrend
The current bull market [March 2009 - Present] continues.
