S&P 500 Index Brief Time period Technical View

In Tuesday’s US Index and Sector ETF Examine that I despatched to my paid Substack subscribers, I reviewed the short-term technical situation of the S&P 500 Index titled, “Ideas on the brief time period technical situation of the SPX Index” which is just one a part of the whole Examine. At the moment (that I’ve highlighted at the moment with a purple arrow), I wrote… “In early Could when the SPX Index regained the bottom above the Every day Cloud Chart, I utilized a Schiff Modified Pitchfork (violet P1 by P3). Since per week in the past final Wednesday costs have been capped by the Higher Parallel (strong violet line) of that pitchfork. Final Thursday the index produced a nasty outdoors day or in candle parlance an engulfing candle however up to now it has not unfolded right into a full-fledged reversal. What has developed up to now has been a pointy flip in my US ETF Every day Momentum / Breadth indicator which has fallen sharply regardless of costs holding close to to the latest highs. MACD has additionally not confirmed the latest worth highs and is starting to roll over. I imagine that odds favor a level of backing and filling that can drive costs to key short-term assist on the Median Line (violet dotted line) of the pitchfork, the Kijun Plot (inexperienced line) and the Cloud”. The technical thesis that I prompt at the moment has unfolded as anticipated. The SPX traded decrease till it examined assist on the Median Line yesterday and an intraday reversal drove the big cap Index to the highs of the day. It stays to be seen whether or not that’s the extent of the worth pullback, however my US ETF Momentum / Breadth Oscillator is approaching “oversold territory” and regardless of what have been an “finish of month markup” there may be nonetheless an underlying bid within the SPX.
