Good Day Traders,
1 Month Trial Membership details HERE.
I was in a wonderful conference since Friday afternoon so I’m going to be short with the Report this weekend.
General Market Observation: After weeks of trudging upward every one of our tracking Indexes finally carved out a high resistance price. The Indexes have provided the first weekly reversal candles on two out of three of the Indexes. Remember when price shows these reversal patterns that the magnitude of the potential reversal is not known. We estimate how far prices may pullback based on what has happened in the past. At this point I would be looking for pullbacks as opportunities to move into bullish trades.
SPX: Take a look at the weekly chart and last week’s price action finished with a Bearish Harami reversal signal. For several weeks I have been highlighting that the internals were lagging the actual price action on all three Indexes so a reset may be in the offing with a pullback or a stalling move until moving averages catch up. A lateral stalling move would be out of line with the recent Index character. The recent character was a solid pullback after the upward move was complete. Look at the highs in June, September and December and the resulting pullbacks and how they actually overshot close support.
NDX: Very similar action to the S&P. Price for the past 5 days ranged in a zone between 4428 and 4464. Friday’s Bearish Harami Doji may be a warning that price is ready to pullback and reset on this Index. Both the daily and weekly charts are coming into synch which will be an additional clue for determining direction over the next few weeks. If I were to trade any of the Index ETF’s to the downside at this time it would be either Nasdaq or the Russell because current prices have further to fall to levels of solid technical support.
RUT: Resistance at 1240 is in place with support at 1229. Price may ping pong around in this zone or break out in either direction. Price looks to be in synch with the NDX. A pullback target would be between 1210 and 1220. Again consider the recent character of the Index since November most of the pullbacks have overshot and dropped to older support levels. If price continues to retest the highs early this week and stall, that would be a potential clue for a quick downside trade.

Outs & Ins: ARUN and PZZA make their yearly debut to the IBD 50. Neither are strangers to this list and have been on the list in past years. ARUN made a huge run after earnings last week and is now at all-time highs. The upside volume was huge for three days. PZZA is one of those puzzlers in that last week’s price action was bearish for the stock. Four days of selling pressure around earnings resulted in a bearish engulfing pattern on the weekly chart.
Earnings are almost over for stocks on the IBD 50. AMBA, NOAH (we think) and ULTA will report over the next two weeks.
