COMMENTARY
That was quite a week…nothing like some volatility to liven up the holidays.

By Monday’s close, price/volume analysis showed the major indexes followed last week’s negative trend, moving from an uptrend under pressure into a correction. Even the massive moves to the upside on Wednesday and Thursday weren’t enough to confirm a new uptrend…yet.  This is why the market outlook remains at “mixed”.

Elliott Wave Analysis shows the intermediate downtrend was very short, and an uptrend is now probable.  Key S&P500 price levels to watch:

  • Resistance: 2,085 / 2,131
  • Support: 2,019 / 2,070

One positive aspect of all this volatility has been the opportunities to prune my portfolio.  Only the strong have survived, leaving me with some free capital for new investments should a new uptrend find some legs.
