Chart of the day: Global index drops under support...


The S&P Global 1200 index has renewed the correction from the overbought April high.  The market has dipped under recent support at both the long and short-term Moving Averages, as it heads for next support at 1793.34.  Should that fail, the near-term chart pattern would look top heavy; and could, in turn, lead to additional weakness towards the year's earlier small base that starts near 1730.



Daily Comment:


The US DJ Industrial Average has also extended the pullback from last month's overbought high.  Late-March support at 17399; near the 50-day Moving Average, is under scrutiny.  A sustained fall beneath that area could complete a short-term top formation, which could lead to additional slippage towards the 17000 region. 

The uptrend by the S&P 500 index is similarly rolling over after finding resistance near last November's ceiling.  A drop to 2030 would provide further evidence of top building.

Brazil's Bovespa index has recorded a 2.7% loss for Friday's session.  The advance towards the May 2015 peak (57605.9) has paused.  Should recent support at the psychological 50000 level; close to the 50-day MA, yield, the April floor around 48000 could come under attack.  Note that floor would appear to be supported by the 200-day MA.  The stop on the long trade held in the market is at 47000.

The short-term decline by the Hang Seng China Enterprise index is becoming oversold near possible support from the year's earlier small base.  A rebound from hereabouts before long would not be surprising.  However, intraday action today saw the stoploss (11.3%) on the long activated.  Should the market fall into the January/February base, there are a couple of support areas to look out for at 7837.65 and 7498.81.
