General Market Observation:  Each of the three Tracking Indexes began pulling back today.  Of significance was the gap down on both the SPX and NDX.  The SPX shows an Island Top which clearly shows the upward momentum is waning.  We must remember that each of the Indexes are still in an uptrend and looking for solid entries off pullbacks is warranted.  However, being aware of the Historical Seasonality in a Post-Election year is also prudent.  If price action follows the historical pattern the Indexes will be entering a weak period between now and late March and early April.  On pullbacks, I will wait for the uptick in the TSI and Momentum.  If current price action results in a thrust down taking out the 50 day moving averages, then I will evaluate the reaction move for a potential downside trade.

The SPX is pulling into support at the 2260 zone and holding above the 20 day EMA.  Today’s candlestick is a Hammer but not at the end of a significant downtrend, so all it only tells us it that buyers came in just below the 20 and buoyed prices into the end of the day.  Today’s gap down resulted in an Island Top which has connotations of weakness in the near-term. 

The NDX also gapped down this morning finding support at the 5100 level.  Price action finished back above the 8 day.  Like the SPX the range of today’s negative price action was larger than recent daily moves.  The daily TSI has now crossed down with Momentum also falling.  The clues for the NDX are weak, but the uptrend is still in effect.

The RUT finished at the low side of the range established over the past several weeks.  Price action bounced off the 50 day EMA but failed to finish in the upper half of the day’s range.  We expect the RUT to be the weakest Index during the first part of the year, but price has not totally broken to the downside.  Price continues to move sideways in a trading box between support at 1341 and resistance at 1384.  Today’s price range was also larger than average.  If the RUT takes out support I will look to trade to the downside using triggers off the 1-Hour Intraday Charts.  A close below current support would increase the probability of a move back to the 100-day moving average currently at the 1303 level.

Preferred Long ETF’s:  SPY, UPRO and SPXL

NDX:   Downside Market Short the QQQ, QQQ Puts or SQQQ.
Preferred Long ETF’s: QQQ and TQQQ
