September 29 Daily Market Comments

The markets continue to demonstrate a lack of conviction. Today’s indecisive trading illustrates the trend channel as being the strongest indicator. However, individual sectors continue to outperform. Crude oil stocks are gaining strength with the prospect of Saudi Arabia cutting production. Utilize each individual stock chart pattern as the main criteria.

Today’s lack of conviction, after yesterday’s strong bullish day, continues to make the sideways trend channel the likely trend evaluation.

Gold remains in a sideways mode. Crude oil is still in a sideways wedge formation. The summer doldrums appear to have continued into the fall.

September 27th Daily Market Comments

The candlestick charts continue to make relevant statements. The Dow is forming a bullish Harami so far today. If it closes as a bullish Harami, a trend channel could be setting up.

The T-line, along with a strong candlestick signal today, still remains the predominant trend indicator.

September 20th Daily Market Comments

Today’s positive trading is bringing both the Dow and the S&P 500 backup above the T-line, creating a slow bottoming action created by a piercing signal and a Morning Star signal over the past week and a half.
