  • Objective Elliott Wave Analysis: Uptrend

COMMENTARY
Another rotation last week, as the Dow Jones took a break and the Nasdaq recovered slightly, thanks in part to biotechs.  Will there be a different winning sector this week?

With the Nasdaq’s stronger showing last week, all the indexes start this week above key support levels (20 and 50 day moving averages), so no change in signal.

2017-06-25 – US Stock Market Averages

Price/volume action continues to support an uptrend, though distribution days remain elevated.

No change in midterm OEW signals;  the uptrend stays in place, but may have topped.

Best of luck this week.  Last Sunday, I mentioned some of my newer holdings had retreated to buy points.  During the week, those positions hit sell triggers (so I’m out), and my weekly scan shows that stocks with the best fundamentals are at profit taking levels (+20%) or are extended from proper technical buy points and bases.

Stock Market Outlook entering the Week of June 18th = Uptrend

  • Price & Volume Action: Uptrend
  • Objective Elliott Wave Analysis: Uptrend

COMMENTARY
As expected, the U.S. Federal Reserve raised short-term interest rates. Sector rotation continues, as the Dow Jones hit new price highs and the Nasdaq fell below short-term support levels.  The uptrend remains in place, but there are some warning signs.

The Dow Jones Industrials, S&P500, NYSE, and Russell 2000 start the week above key support levels (20 and 50 day moving averages).  The Nasdaq had another poor showing last week, and begins this week below its 20 day moving average.

2017-06-18 – US Stock Market Averages

The overall distribution count can now be considered elevated, with most of the indexes above 5 (the S&P500 is at 6). Further high volume selling will confirm a new downtrend.

OEW is signaling that the uptrend may have topped with a minor correction to follow.

Caution remains the order of the day.  Most of my recent trades have returned to their buy points, indicating a weak environment for growth stocks.

Weekend Stock Market Outlook

Stock Market Outlook entering the Week of June 11th = Uptrend

  • 20/50 Day Moving Averages: Uptrend
  • Price & Volume Action: Uptrend
  • Objective Elliott Wave Analysis: Uptrend

COMMENTARY
U.S. stocks continued their march higher last week, although Friday’s massive sell of in technology names (price and volume) is enough to give us pause as we start this week. Add to that this week’s Fed meeting and an expected rate hike…no one knows for sure how market prices will react.

All the major stock market averages start the week above key support levels (20 and 50 day moving averages).  The Nasdaq had quite the sell off on Friday, as investors appear to have rotated out of tech stocks and into industrials, banks, and energy.

2017-06-11 – US Stock Market Averages

Although the overall distribution day count remains low, many leading stocks were crushed on Friday. Since many of the leading stocks are also technology plays (e.g. the so called FAANG stocks of Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google), the price/volume action adds to the possibility of sector rotation.

OEW maintains an uptrend signal for now.

Following last week’s call to prune your holdings, tread carefully in the near term if you plan to initiate new positions.  We may be in an uptrend, but if the sectors are rotating, a new batch of leaders will emerge and your prior research may need to be revisited.

COMMENTARY
U.S. stocks remain in rally mode as we enter the first full week of June trading.

All the major stock market averages start the week above key support levels (20 and 50 day moving averages).  The US dollar remains in a downtrend, as does the general commodity market, while gold is in a uptrend.

2017-06-04 – US Stock Market Averages

Two new distribution days last week, but price and volume action remains positive and in rally mode.

OEW maintains an uptrend signal as well.

U.S. stocks have had quite a run since the November election; enough time for a rotation into and out of banks and oil firms.  Now is a great time to check your holdings, book some profits (>20% is one of my rules), and trim any laggards that haven’t kept up or have show weakness in the fundamentals (sales, earnings, etc.)

  • 20/50 Day Moving Averages: Uptrend
  • Price & Volume Action: Uptrend
  • Objective Elliott Wave Analysis: Uptrend

COMMENTARY
U.S. stocks continued to recover from the beating they took a week and a half ago, with most indexes reaching all time highs while the Russell 2000 continues to lag behind.  This week will be a shortened week, as U.S. markets are closed Monday in observance of Memorial Day.

The Russell 2000 regained the 50-day moving average, but still remains below the 20 day.  All the other market indexes are above both key levels.

2017-05-28 – US Stock Market Averages

Price/volume action improved last week, with no new distribution days and a few old ones falling off the count.

OEW analysis shows the continued uptrend as well, finally seeing at least a little bit that the Dow and S&P500 strength needed to continue the current rally.

Weekend Stock Market Outlook

Stock Market Outlook entering the Week of May 21st = Uptrend

  • 20/50 Day Moving Averages: Mixed
  • Price & Volume Action: Uptrend
  • Objective Elliott Wave Analysis: Uptrend

COMMENTARY
A midweek sell-off hit leading stocks hard, and put the general markets below key support levels.  Indexes recovered some of those losses by Friday’s close, keeping the overall outlook intact.

Stock indexes recovered some of their losses, and most begin this week above their 50 day moving averages, but below their 20-day.  The Russell 2000 sits below both levels, reflecting the difficult week for small cap stocks.

2017-05-21 – US Stock Market Averages

Price/volume remains in an uptrend, although another steep sell-off through the 50-day moving average would change this view.  Currently, the Dow, Nasdaq, S&P500 and NYSE sit at 5, 3,  5, and 4 distribution days, respectively.

OEW remains in an uptrend, and looks for strength from the Dow and S&P to continue the current rally.

COMMENTARY
The U.S. markets did not get a Macron bump courtesy of the French election.  Retail had the worst week by far, while cybersecurity firms rallied in response to the WannaCry attack.  Now investors will need to look for some other catalyst.

Stock indexes remain above most moving averages; the lone exception being the Russell 2000 closing below the 20-day.
