September 10th Daily Market Comments

The T-line continues to act as a relevant indicator. The major indexes bounced up to that level Today and are currently starting to selloff. This indicates a bounce has occurred in the market but not yet a full fledged reversal back to the upside. These market conditions warrant being very selective as far as the strength of the signals and patterns. Continue to have both long and short positions in the portfolio.

September 9th Daily Market Directions

The inverted hammer is the relevant signal Today. The NASDAQ formed an inverted hammer on the 50 day moving average yesterday. Today’s positive trading provides a good indication the 50 day moving average is going to act as a support level. This does not necessarily mean the markets are going to head straight up from here, the stochastics still need to start turning back up to confirm investor sentiment is not in the bearish mode. AAPL, AMZN, OSTK, NVDA are all trading positive after yesterday’s inverted hammer signals. There are still good long and short positions working. Be selective.

The markets provided the hint yesterday there would be profit-taking Today. The Dow and the S&P 500 gapped up in the overbought area. The NASDAQ formed a hanging man signal. That information provided the stimulus to take some profits. Unless there is some very strong buying in the markets going into the close today, expect some more selling.
