US Indices Short - the big one!


Mercury

Recommended Posts

Interesting week of price action.  SP500 and Nasdaq make higher highs to match the previous level of the Dow (Fib 88% zone) but the Dow itself makes a lower high.  FTSE100 & Dax make higher highs too but Nikkei and Russell 2000 have tracked similarly to the Dow.  All of the indices turned in key resistance zones as follows:

  1. Dow, SP500, Nasdaq - Fib 88%
  2. Russell 2000 at a resistance zone between Fibs
  3. FTSE 100 - Fib 62%
  4. Dax and Nikkei - Fib 50%

Obviously the US markets have been more optimistic/bullish/over-exuberant (delete as desired) than the others, and therefore offer the most volatility and therefore opportunity.

My long term outlook remains intact despite this US over exuberance and all 3 scenarios remain in play as follows (see Dow Daily chart below):

  1. Complex retrace as Bull/Bear slug-fest continues until the Bulls throw in the towel in early Summer
  2. Towel already thrown in but will still see a significant retrace before the critical support break into the Big Big Short
  3. A final leg up to a new all time high

I cannot tell whether 1 or 2 will emerge at present so will watch price action over the coming months with interest but the nature of the rally just ended suggests scenario 1 as the lead option, just.  For scenario 3 I would expect to see more of a sideways move than a sharp Bearish phase.

The technical picture (using the Dow but very similar in all major indices) is as follows:

  • Negative Momentum Divergence on the Daily at the Wave A(pink) or 2(Purple) highs
  • Clear area of significant resistance at the rally end (Fib 88%)
  • Significant pin bar price action at both rally end and EWT A-B end
  • Very strong bearish move away from the turn zones.
  • EWT A-B or 1-2 with a lower low (not yet on SP500 and Nasdaq) and smaller EWT1-2 with another lower low (see 4 hour chart also)
  • Oscillators turned back out of over bought, journey down to over sold indicated.
  • Russell 2000 made a lower low (others should follow into a short term A-B-C at least but likely to be a longer Bearish move).
  • In addition the Weekly Nasdaq chart shows a narrowing channel to the all time high (Oct 2018) and a break and retest of the lower channel line, the latter yesterday with a sharp bearish pin bar rebound off the failed retest.

Trading strategy:

  1. I am already Short off the first and second turns on the Dow and off the recent top out and turn on SP500 and Nasdaq - I am only trading US large caps as this offers the larger potential under either scenario 1 or 2 above.
  2. I am stop protected at break even on those early trades
  3. I will seek to sell into rallies of any reasonable retrace significance
  4. I will look for those retraces around channel breakout points (SP500 & Nasdaq) and off support zones.

Frustrating business this trading at times.  A strong Bearish move was almost totally reversed last week but not quite reversed.  Will it be?  The Bulls certainly think so but then that is all to the good for me, I always worry when the pack (and the MSM) align to my way of thinking too early.  For now, at least until past highs are broken, I am minded to expect a lower high reversal into a strong Bearish move, after a short continuation of last weeks bull into next week.

Certainly on the cards @Kodiak but the Nasdaq is exceptional bullish, to be expected in a tech led bull market I guess.  Price has stalled at key resistance levels (last chance saloon for Bears maybe (see my "are we there yet" thread).  However the jury remains out at present as US stocks teeter on the brink of either fresh all time highs or a significant bearish move.  One thing is for sure, the Bulls are not going "quietly into that good night".

    • USDCAD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart, U.S.Dollar /Canadian Dollar (USD/CAD) Day Chart USD/CAD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION:  Counter Trend MODE: impulsive                                               STRUCTURE:red wave 3 POSITION:blue wave C DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES:red wave 4 DETAILS red wave 2 of C completed at 1.37634, now red wave 3 is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level:1.37634   The USD/CAD Elliott Wave analysis on the daily chart offers an insightful perspective on the current market movements for this currency pair. The primary function of this analysis is identified as a counter trend, indicating that the present movements are contrary to the larger prevailing trend. The mode of the wave structure is classified as impulsive, which points to strong and decisive price actions that characterize this phase of the market.   The primary structure identified within this analysis is red wave 3, a crucial segment in the Elliott Wave sequence that typically involves significant and sustained price movements. Within this structure, the current position is blue wave C, indicating that this part of the cycle is actively unfolding.   Looking ahead, the direction for the next higher degrees points towards red wave 4. This projection is significant as it anticipates a corrective phase following the impulsive movements of red wave 3. Red wave 4 usually involves some retracement of the previous gains, which is an essential aspect of the market's natural ebb and flow.   Key details within this analysis highlight that red wave 2 of the current wave C structure has been completed at a specific level. This completion sets the stage for red wave 3 to be in play now, marking a particularly dynamic phase in the Elliott Wave cycle. This phase often represents powerful and strong market movements, either upward or downward.   An important aspect of this analysis is the wave cancel invalid level, set at a specific price point. If the market price moves beyond this level, it would invalidate the current wave count and necessitate a reassessment of the wave structure. This invalidation level serves as a crucial checkpoint for confirming the accuracy of the Elliott Wave pattern and the expected market behavior.   In summary, the USD/CAD pair is currently experiencing an impulsive counter-trend phase within red wave 3 on the daily chart. With red wave 2 of C completed, the market is now in the dynamic phase of red wave 3. Expectations point towards transitioning to red wave 4 next. Monitoring the invalidation level is essential for validating the current wave structure and future market projections.     USDCAD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart,       U.S.Dollar /Canadian Dollar (USD/CAD) 4 Hour Chart       USD/CAD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION:  Counter Trend MODE: impulsive   STRUCTURE:black wave 3 POSITION:red wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES:black wave 4 DETAILS black wave 2 of 3 completed at 1.36781, now black wave 3 of red wave 3 is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level:1.37634   The USD/CAD Elliott Wave analysis on the 4-hour chart provides a detailed view of the current market dynamics for the currency pair. The function of this analysis is identified as a counter trend, indicating movements that go against the prevailing larger trend. The mode of the current wave structure is described as impulsive, suggesting strong, decisive price movements.   The primary wave structure identified is black wave 3, which is a critical phase in the Elliott Wave sequence, typically involving significant price movements. Within this structure, the current position is red wave 3, indicating an active phase where substantial price shifts are expected.   In terms of direction for the next higher degrees, the analysis projects a transition into black wave 4 after the completion of the current wave. This projection is crucial as it anticipates a corrective phase following the impulsive movements of black wave 3, which usually involves some retracement of the previous gains.   Key details of the analysis highlight that black wave 2 of the current sequence has been completed at a specific level, setting the stage for black wave 3 of red wave 3 to be in play now. This phase is particularly significant as it often represents one of the most powerful and dynamic parts of the Elliott Wave cycle, involving strong upward or downward movements.   The wave cancel invalid level is an important aspect of this analysis, set at a specific price point. If the market price moves beyond this level, it would invalidate the current wave count and necessitate a re-evaluation of the wave structure. This level acts as a critical checkpoint to confirm the accuracy of the Elliott Wave pattern and the expected market behavior.   In summary, the USD/CAD pair is currently in an impulsive counter-trend phase within black wave 3 of red wave 3 on the 4-hour chart. With black wave 2 completed, the market is experiencing the dynamic phase of black wave 3, with expectations of transitioning to black wave 4 next. Monitoring the invalidation level is essential for validating the current wave structure and future market projections.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
