July 27th Daily Market Comments

The indexes were nudging the top of the resistance level yesterday in the overbought condition. The NASDAQ did a Doji, at least providing a little warning that the upper resistance area may still be relevant. Today’s lower trading confirms a major change of investor sentiment at that level. The NASDAQ is currently trading back below the T line, as well as the transportation index. The short positions are working extremely well.

Strong Candlestick Market Reversal

The reversal signals in the Dow and NASDAQ quickly indicated the selloff of the previous week was merely profit-taking versus an overall market trend reversal. Additionally, with the indexes trading back up above the T line, not only indicates the uptrend is still in progress but it creates a market environment producing good investor bullish sentiment. This makes for taking advantage of big breakout moves. When there is no fear factor in the overall market, investor sentiment will move breakout prices with much greater enthusiasm.https://youtu.be/LEoFmJ7ZWzM

The expected profit-taking today is not showing any real downward pressure on the market indexes. Investor confidence is building back up. This is seen in some of the big breakout moves, especially seen in the co-vid related stocks. Apparently the new cocktail mixes are getting a lot of attention. The uptrend should be in progress as long as the indexes remain above the T line.

Be careful the bounce! Although the indexes are trading positive Today, stochastics are still in a downward direction in the indexes are below the T line. There was sentiment damage done over the past few days in the markets. It would take bullish confirmation of getting the indexes back up above the T-line to have bullish confidence built back up. Continue to use the T line as your ultimate criteria.

The underlying weakness of the market is now becoming more evident. Yesterday the Dow continue to maintain strength but today is showing selling along with the other indexes. The NASDAQ is trading below the T line, the S&P 500 needed to open positive and trade positive to maintain the uptrend but it is currently trading lower, below the T line. The short positions are working well.

The bearish left/right combo in the NASDAQ yesterday was the strongest sell signal of the indexes. The Dow and S&P 500 form Doji’s, indicating potential weakness in the overbought conditions. The short positions continue to work well. Long positions showing sell signals are increasing. Anything closing below the T line should be closed out.

The market conditions remain the same, the indexes are in a choppy slow uptrend, making continuing to hold long positions viable as long as a trade above the T line. However, numerous short positions continue to act well. Have both long and short positions in the portfolio.
