Chart of the day: S&P 500 probes uptrend support...


Last week, the US S&P 500 index developed resistance near the 50-day moving average.  The market extended the decline from the September (and all-time) high on Friday to pressure uptrend support at the longer-term MA.  That line coincides with the August low at 1904.78.  A counter move upwards from hereabouts before long would not surprise.  In the event of a breach, though, next important support is at the April platform at 114.36.

The CBOE Volatility Index moves inversely to the S&P 500.  VIX has soared to the late-2012/early-2014 ceiling around 22.  Given that barrier, the stop on the long is tightened to 20, thereby locking in a profit.



Daily Comment:


The declines for a number of European bourses have become oversold.  This increases the risk of a counter move up before too long.

In the case of the German DAX, sideways support at the March-August floor has cracked, leaving a top-heavy pattern.  However, the RSI is indicating an oversold state, and so we delay selling for the moment (see hotline for 8 October).

The UK's FTSE 350 index continued to slide before the weekend, trading beneath the October 2013 floor (3428.72) during the session.  The RSI for the market has fallen into oversold territory.  Therefore, in order to lock in a profit on the short trade, the stop is lowered to 3470.

Finland's General HEX index is one of the markets that have generated a 'Bear' P&F Breakout signal.  This follows the fall through 7200.  The Bar chart printed here shows HEX breaking August support.  However, we would point out the oversold RSI and further support nearby, around 7100, from the March-April floor.
