​​​​​​​​​​​​TAKE NOTE that I will be switching to SPY etf instead of the e-mini futures
within the next two weeks for the technicals analysis as it is easier to
​follow and trade for most of the clients​​... ON AUGUST 31


​​We did close above the 2022.5 level on August 26, triggering the Bull Case.

​​Yesterday I wrote:​​
​​​China try to stabilize their stock market: China Intervened Today to Shore Up Stocks Ahead of Military Parade
We are within a dead cat bounce til the Daily Gaps in the SP500 Index are tested:
SP500 Index: Dead Cat Bounce or... ?
​So for SP500 futures means 1965 to MAX 2003...

Yesterday s Bullish Wave was the easiest part of the rebound; dead cat bounce or a more bullish impulse...
​We are at crossroads for the SP500 here. We reached and closed on August 27 the first gap at the 1965 zone.
​The second gap is a lot higher at the 2025 zone. ( see 3rd chart - SP500 Index  SPX )

We need a daily close above 1965 for me to call for a more Bullish Impulse. Failing to do so will tell me that it was only a dead cat bounce...​

Also quite interesting to note that the EEM ETF ( iShares Emerging Markets ) is near back testing the Major Rising Wedge Pattern Trendline that started back in May 2009 also corresponding to the 50% Fibonacci level at 34.33.


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Only a daily close above 1922.5 ( it did on August 26 ) will give us another possible Bullish Impulse to ​1951 MAX 1961.5. New targets are 1965 MAX 2003.

​​Only a daily close below 1951 will give us another Bearish Impulse to ​1934.5.5 MAX 1922 for now... 


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​​Seasonals are turning into a Grind Trade Pattern trend til August 29.

​​Next big support is at 1951 and next big resistance is at 2003

​​Then today I expect a range from 1951 to 2003.


​​​Financials (XLF) and  Apple (AAPL) will still be on my watch list today... Plus EEM and CEW ETFs

​​​​​​But do not be mislead by that market - choppy and risky it is...


Some Technical Comments:​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​1) On August 27, We reached and closed the first gap at the 1965 zone.
2) ​
On August 21, we broke Support Trendline at 2001.5 that started back on December 16 2014
​3) ​On August 20, we broke the 200 DMA on the downside ( Day Moving Average ) then at 2063.7
4) On August 19, we broke the Support Trendline from the Wedge then at 2079.5
​5) On August 17, ​we broke the 20 DMA on the upside ( Day Moving Average ) then at 2091.5
​6) On August 14, ​we broke the 50 DMA on the upside ( Day Moving Average ) then at 2088
​​​​​​​​7) ​On August 6, we broke the 50 DMA on the downside ( Day Moving Average ) then at 2090.7

Disclaimer

We are in a Bull Trade mode ( since August 26 ) as long as we stay above 1951 on a daily close.

​​We broke on August 17 a downtrend channel that started on July 29 with 2065 as suport and 2095 as resistance.

​​
​​​​​​​​​We need to stay above 1951 for that Bull scenario to unfold. Those levels will make all the difference IF broken or not. A test and breaking up that level will cancel the Bear mode.

Only a daily close below 1951 will give us another Bearish Impulse to ​1934.5 MAX 1922 for now...

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Adding the 200 DMA at 2062 is clearly indicating the levels not to break for bears. Done on August 20

Already starting to trade below the 1951 level will mean to me technical weakness and Bearss are starting to take control of the market.​​

Seasonals are turning into a Grind Trade Pattern trend til August 29. See links above.

Starting to trade above and/or having a daily close above 2003 will bring us back towards another bull impulse wave and open the door to a quick 2029 max 2040...
​​
​​​
​​​The market should trade today between ​​1951 and 2003.
​Expect above average volatility in the weeks ahead.

​​We broke on August 17 a downtrend channel that started on July 29 with 2065 as suport and 2095 as resistance.

​​​​​​​​​​​​We need to stay below 1951 for that Bear scenario to unfold. Those levels will make all the difference IF broken or not. A test and breaking up that level will cancel the Bear mode.

Only a daily close above 1951 will give us another Bullish Impulse to ​1961.5 MAX 1973.5 for now...

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Adding the 200 DMA at 2063 is clearly indicating the levels not to break for bears. Done on August 20

Already starting to trade above the 1951 level will mean to me technical strenght and Bulls are starting to take control of the market.​​

Seasonals are turning into a Grind Trade Pattern trend til August 24. See links above.

Starting to trade below and/or having a daily close below 2001.5 will bring us back towards another wave in the nasty bear case from a tiny correction scenario and open the door to a quick 1972 max 1951... Done
​​
​​​​​​The market should trade today between ​​1872 and 1973​.
​Expect above average volatility in the weeks ahead.


​​August 24 The Perfect Storm ?

​​​​​​​​​​​​We did close below the 2088 level on August 19, triggering the Bear Case.

​​Last Friday I wrote: ​​​​​We did broke the 200 DMA ( Day Moving Average ) on

I will start to focus on a Support Trendline at 2001.5 that started back on December 16 2014.
IF broken on a Daily basis, expect another nasty bear wave towards 1972 MAX 1951.​​​

By breaking the Support Trendline at 2001.5 that started back on December 16 2014, that was the coup de Jarnac that the market needed less here with poor summer liquidity... And gave the Final answer to the Bulls:
Hope is now forbidden...​

​​All eyes are on China even if the Real Turmoil for me are the Emerging Markets: EEM annd CEW ETFs
​China’s Stocks Sink Most Since 2007 as State Intervention Fails

​​Emerging Stocks Markets and Currencies were already in Turmoil and the SP500 Index was in fact in a very complacent mood. The Strong US Dollar is typical of bringing Financial Volatility as previous Major Correction was almost always preceded by a strong US$.

​​CEW and EEM ETFs will be my lead price wise into that turmoil...

The Monthly close will be crucial here as we are geeting into Breakdown Territory on most Major World Stock Indices: ​​SP500 Macro Tecnicals: From Break Out to Breakdown ?

​​​​​​​​Only a daily close below 2088 (it did on August 19) will give us another Bearish Impulse to ​2046.5 MAX 2038 for now... New Targets of 1911 amd 1890.

​​​​Only a daily close above 1973.5 will give us another Bullish Impulse to ​1985 MAX 2002.5.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Seasonals are turning into a Grind Trade Pattern trend til August 24.

​​Next big support is at 1890 and next big resistance is coming from the 50% Fibonacci extension at 1973.5

​​Then today I expect a range from 1890 to 1965.

Interesting to observe that the top performers ( Like the Heathcare Sector (XLY) and Internet Stocks (FDN ETF) and Biotech Stocks (IBB ETF) have been beaten violently. ​​That tells me liquidation to cover losses on bad stocks positions.


The Retail less participation since August 5 also helped that decline :

​We are in a Bull Trade mode ( since August 12 ) as long as we stay above 2088 on a daily close.

We are within a new uptrend channel that started on August 12 with 2067.5 as suport and 2106.5 as resistance.

​​We broke on August 17 a downtrend channel that started on July 29 with 2065 as suport and 2095 as resistance.

​​​​​​​​​​​​We need to stay above 2088 for that Bull scenario to unfold. Those levels will make all the difference IF broken or not. A test and breaking up that level will cancel the Bear mode.

Only a daily close below 2088 will give us another Bearish Impulse to ​2078 MAX 2067.5 for now...

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Adding the 50 DMA at 2088 is clearly indicating the levels not to break for bears.

Already starting to trade above the 2088 level will mean to me technical strenght and Bulls are starting to take control of the market.​​

Seasonals are turning into a Corrective Trade Pattern trend til August 20. See links above.

Starting to trade below and/or having a daily close below 2062 will bring us back towards another wave in the nasty bear case from a tiny correction scenario and open the door to a quick 2037.5 max 1996...
​​
​​​​​​The market should trade today between ​​2085 and 2104.
​Expect above average volatility in the weeks ahead.

​​We did close above the 2083.5 level on August 12, triggering the Bull Case.
Conviction is low on that one...​ Because almost already reached the 2099
Max target last week...​

​​Last Friday I wrote: ​​​​We did test the 20 and 50 DMA ( Day Moving Averages )
​and both were rejected and we failed to close above the 50 DMA; That tell me that we had what I thought, ONLY a dead cat bounce and we re still within that downtrend channel with 2066.5 support and 2066.5 as resistance..

​​We are still into that downward channel that started back on July 29 with 2065 as support and 2095 as resistance ( that was almost reached in the overnight trading session with 2094.5 ).

​​I will focus on a wedge this week that can trigger the next move.: 2076.5 support and 2106.5 as resistance. See 2 nd chart below - bottom blue trenldine for support and top red trendline as resistance.

​​Only a daily close above 2083.5 (it did on August 12) will give us another Bullish Impulse to ​2097.5 MAX 2099.

​​​​​​​​​Only a daily close below 2084.5 will give us another Bearish Impulse to ​2076.5 MAX 2062 for now...

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Seasonals are turning into a Corrective Trade Pattern trend til August 20.

​​Next big support is the wedge at 2076.5 and next big resistance is the resistance of the channel at 2095

​​Then today I expect a range from 2080 to 2095.

The Market trades like it is pricing no fear as Financials and VIX indicator show: ​
​SP500 Financials and VIX: No Fear into that Market ?

​​​Financials (XLF) and Apple (AAPL) will still be on my watch list today...

​​​​​​But do not be mislead by that market - choppy and risky it is...
