Chart of the day: Breakout by Italian index but...


The Italian S&P MIB index appears on the 'Gainers' list with +1.1%.  Also the move through 24000 has generated a bullish P&F Breakout signal on the automated scanner. 

On a near-term basis, the market has extended the rally past the short-term range highs at the April-June ceiling, 24081.7.  This action has renewed the advance off the 2012 floor near 12000.  This seven-year chart shows that valuations have approached resistance at the late-2009 peak at 24558.5.  It is worth bearing in mind that that barrier may still have a depressing effect.


Daily Comment:


In contrast, Poland's WSE WIG 20 index makes an appearance on the 'Losers' board.  Shedding 1.8% on Monday, the market looks to be reasserting the downtrend.  A clearance of resistance near 2300, at the 25-day Moving Average, would be needed to improve the outlook.

In the US, we err on the side of caution and book the remaining profit on the long trade held in the S&P 100 making 1.13%.  The market did rally to a new all-time high, though some intraday resistance is noted there, at 947.85.

Profitable stops are tightened on the NASDAQ longs, to 5200 for the Composite version and 4655 for the NASDAQ 100.  These markets rallied to new highs yesterday.

In contrast, across the border, Canada's TSX Composite index has retraced a good portion on the recent recovery after finding downtrend resistance near the 50-day MA.  If this month's earlier low at 14275.5 fails, next important chart support is at the January floor at 13892.6.

Australia's ASX 200 index has continued its rally from support in the 5400 region.  Having edged over the late-June high at 5705.8, bulls will be aiming for the late-May high at 5803.  Note this is near the lower side of the year's earlier top formation, which stretches up to around 6000.
