Weekend Stock Market Outlook

Stock Market Outlook entering the Week of September 16th = Uptrend

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

Looks like the stock market opted for a run at new highs (rather than searching for support).  A quick run through a bunch of recession indicators (trends in the yield curve, unemployment, new home sales, retail sales, etc.) shows no sign of a recession with the next 12 months.  So even if the markets do test support key support levels sometime soon, it’s most likely a buy the dip opportunity.

All the indexes start the week above their 20 and 50 day moving averages; the Nasdaq and NYSE regained the 20 day average last week.

2018-09-16 – US Stock Market Averages

A solid week of gains on rising trading volume last week; not quite as much volume as expected, but we’re in a positive position nonetheless.

OEW is still in an uptrend, and still expecting new highs in all market averages before any kind of next major correction.

The S&P ($SPX) starts the week in a good position; fresh off a key support level and in the middle of our price channel. Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: the ADX is showing a weak trend. At least the directional indicators are supporting of an uptrend (DI+ is greater than DI-). One of these days I’ll need to find a momentum indicator to supplement the ADX.

Extending our view, we see the expected increase in trading volume, and the January high acting as a support level last week.

And since we’ve successfully recovered the January high, it’s a good time to check your asset allocation levels and/or take some profits.  Remember; bulls make money, bears make money, pigs get slaughtered.
