4 December 2014                                     By Cornelia Dichio, Analyst
Chart of the day: New high by S&P 500


The US S&P 500's correction from overbought was short-lived and shallow.  Finding support at 2049.57, the market rallied to post a fresh high during Wednesday's session, at 2076.28.  Some caution is still warranted, though, as the RSI momentum indicator remains at elevated levels.

Similarly, the DJ Industrial Average has also recorded a new all-time high, at 17924.2; and the RSI remains in overbought territory.



Daily Comment:


Across the border, the Canadian TSX Composite index has reversed its pullback from the lower side of the late-June/September top.  Support has been found at 14558.2, near the upper side of the small trading band which starts close to the 200-day moving average (see hotline for 1 November, Chart of the Day section).  A fall beneath that level would be required to offset current scope for a further rise towards the recent high at 15184.4.

Spain's IBEX 35 index has consolidated and moved ahead again.  The market points to the June-September ceiling near 11000-11250.  In order to lock in a profit on the long trade held in the Spanish index, the stop is tightened to 10750, which is just below yesterday's low.

China's Shanghai A index has posted a 4.3% gain for today's trading.  The overbought rally is accelerating. This is a trend-ending feature, though the turning point is difficult to predict.  Next chart resistance is near 3200.

Australia's ASX 200 index has extended its rebound from oversold today.  One observes that the recovery has approached resistance at the sideways area near 5400, a barrier that is reinforced by the presence of both the long and short-term MAs.  In the event of a clearance, the November high at 5530.3 will be the next target for bulls.

By contrast, Malaysia's KLSE Composite index has dived under the October low this week.  The fall through 1760 has generated a bearish P&F Breakout signal on the automated scanner.  However, we would point out that the RSI has now entered oversold ground.
