Turkey's ISE National 100 index has recorded a 3% gain for Thursday's session. The chart on the right shows the market spending several weeks ranging beneath the January peak before finally establishing sufficient support to crack that ceiling at 86787.2. This takes valuations to new all-time highs for Turkey's index.
The RSI is at a high level, but no where near as overbought as back in January. We open a long trade in expectation of higher levels. Note that support at the 50-day moving average was successfully tested on two occasions last month. The stop is placed beneath that line, at 80000 for now.
Some European bourses are not participating in the current rally in the region.
Austria's ATX, for instance, shed 2.1% on Thursday. The chart pattern for the year so far is rather top heavy. Should support at the 200-day moving average yield, the index would be vulnerable to additional slippage towards the 2200 sideways area.
Latvia's OMX Riga index lost 2% yesterday. This market is also probing support at the longer-term MA around 395, after encountering resistance at the shorter-term MA line near 410. That level has to be overcome in order to improve the pattern, and thus remove the danger of a breach in the lower boundary. Should that occur, bears will aim for the 380 region.
In the US, the Nasdaq indices have extended their advance after the briefest of hesitations. We continue to hold a long position in the Nasdaq Composite, and raise the stop to 3145, which is just beneath the last reaction low plotted in mid-April.
We also hold a long trade in the S&P 500 in the region. This market recorded a new all-time high, at 1598.6, on Thursday.
The overbought rally for Argentina's General index displays a slight loss of pace. Given the anticipated correction, we have been running a tight trailing stop on the long position. This was activated yesterday, yielding a 11.7% profit.
