Technical Analysis – CHI 50 stock index targets 2019 peak but bulls may lose momentum

Posted on December 31, 2019 at 10:02 am GMT

ChIna’s 50 stock index (CHI50) closed the year slightly below the 2019 top of 14,456 on Tuesday. Technically, the positive momentum in the MACD, which jumped above its red signal line, suggests that there is still some room for improvement in the short-term. The RSI is bullish as well, though the indicator is not far below its 70 overbought mark which previously acted as resistance, hinting that any additional upside move may come softer in the coming sessions. Therefore, in [..]

Technical Analysis – US 500 index prints bearish shooting star candle at fresh record high

Posted on December 30, 2019 at 12:01 pm GMT

The US 500 stock index seems to have formed a bearish shooting star candle on Friday in the same day it unlocked a fresh record high of 3,251 and it remains to be seen whether the bears will take the lead in the coming sessions. Overbought conditions have already been detected as the RSI has been flattening above 70 for more than a week now and the Stochastics are turning south after posting a bearish cross above 80. The slowdown in the MACD further [..]

Technical Analysis – EU Stocks 50 Index hits 4½-year high but momentum is waning

Posted on December 19, 2019 at 3:38 pm GMT

EU Stocks 50 Cash Index (EU50) hit a fresh 4½-year high of 3777.61 earlier this week, extending the recovery from last December’s 2-year trough of 2907.25. However, the positive momentum has since started to ease and technical indicators support the retreat in price action. The stochastics have fallen off overbought levels and the RSI is also sloping downwards. However, both remain in bullish territory, so a resumption of the uptrend is likely as long as the downside correction is brief. [..]

Technical Analysis – US 30 index retracts from all-time-peak as momentum fades

Posted on December 17, 2019 at 2:20 pm GMT

US 30 stock index’s appreciation appears to have paused after it withdrew from the recently logged all-time-high of 28,336. Although positive momentum seems to have weakened, the bigger positive picture continues to be assisted by the upward slopes in the simple moving averages (SMAs) and the bullish crossover of the 100-period SMA by the 50-period one. The short-term oscillators reflect a stall in the market yet lean towards a positive outlook. The MACD deep in the positive region, has slipped [..]

Technical Analysis – US 100 index’s positive sentiment intact despite stalling

Posted on December 12, 2019 at 2:57 pm GMT

The US 100 stock index looks to have stalled after logging a fresh all-time high of 8,452.95, something also backed by the flat Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen lines. That said, the price is trading above the Ichimoku cloud and the supportive trendline, suggesting that the positive outlook could endure. The short-term oscillators reflect the stall in momentum but lean towards the positive picture. The RSI is hovering in bullish territory, while the MACD – in the positive zone – looks to [..]

Technical Analysis – UK 100 index retests ascending trendline; Elliot wave pattern looks in progress

Posted on December 12, 2019 at 11:51 am GMT

The UK 100 stock index is pushing efforts to return above the ascending trendline drawn from the 6,535 bottom after the 50% Fibonacci of the 6,535-7,728 bullish wave provided significant support last week. Failure to close decisively above that line could bring the 50% Fibonacci of 7,133 back under the spotlight. If the bears clear that support this time, negative momentum could pick up steam towards the 7,000 mark where the 61.8% Fibonacci is placed. Further down, the 6,900 level could [..]

Technical Analysis – GER 30 index gives up recent highs; looks neutral in short-term

Posted on December 6, 2019 at 8:29 am GMT

The GER30 stock index gave up some ground after stubbornly and unsuccessfully testing the 13,300 region for almost a month. The short-term bias is now viewed as neutral, as the red Tenkan-sen has slowed to meet the blue Kijun-sen line, while the RSI is struggling to hold above its 50 neutral mark. A closing price below Tuesday’s trough of 12,924 and the 50-day exponential moving average (EMA) could encourage more selling, though only a significant decline below 12,660 would put [..]

Technical Analysis – US 500 index stumbles, but positive outlook intact for now

Posted on December 4, 2019 at 10:03 am GMT

The US 500 index fell this week, after briefly touching a new all-time high of 3158. The picture is still positive, with the price structure consisting of higher peaks and higher troughs above a long term uptrend line drawn from the December 2018 low, and also safely above both the 50- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMAs). That said, a potential close below 3090 would mark a lower low on the daily chart, bringing the bullish outlook into question. Short [..]

Technical Analysis – US 30 index hits fresh record high, but stalls

Posted on November 27, 2019 at 4:17 pm GMT

The US 30 stock index has repeatedly closed at new record highs in November, with the series of higher peaks and higher troughs on the daily chart confirming the resumption of the longer-term uptrend. The picture is positive across all timeframes –  short, medium, and long-term – though the RSI is indicating that the latest pullback may continue in the immediate term. Having touched its 70 line, the RSI has turned lower, a sign that the bulls may be losing [..]

Technical Analysis – JP225 index bounces off 200-SMA; short-term bias positive but weak

Posted on November 25, 2019 at 11:14 am GMT

Japan’s 225 stock index failed to cross below the 200-period simple moving average (SMA) on Thursday on the four-hour chart and instead rallied back into the 23,000 area and closer to the upper surface of the Ichimoku cloud. The RSI and the MACD also improved but have yet to expand comfortably in the bullish area, suggesting a weak positive bias for the short-term. Buyers will be waiting for a decisive close above the 23,345 area and the surface of the Ichimoku cloud to [..]
