General Market Observation: What a difference a week makes! Last Tuesday prices on the SPX were in “No Man’s” Land and today they are extended away from the moving averages and at resistance. As I said last week, the NDX and RUT looked like the strongest of the 3 Tracking Indexes. I opened a position in TQQQ the 3x Leveraged ETF for the NDX on the 18th and it has paid off well with Monday’s big bounce. Viva la France! If there is positive news regarding tax legislation more fuel may propel each of the Indexes higher!

SPX: Broke out of its down trending channel and has moved back towards resistance at the 2385 level. The resistance zone reaches to 2400 so if the upswing continues this zone provide may put the brakes on the move. If price get to resistance, watch for a reversal candle that may proceed a trend change. The oscillators on both the daily and weekly chart look to potentially support a move higher so if the ceiling shatters more upside maybe in follow.

NDX: New high after Monday’s break away gap! We were in a position for the NDX since 4/18 with partial profits booked. Price is extended from the moving averages so a pullback is in order but this may take place after additional altitude is gained.

RUT: Closed above last year’s high but ran into resistance just above the 1414 level. If price close above resistance then that may be the catalyst for more upside. At this point price are still working within a lateral channel. Watch for indecisive or reversal candles to show up at this level as a clue that the surge is over.

SPX: Downside Market Short the SPY, SPY Puts or SPXU.
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

RUT: Downside Market Short the IWM, IWM Puts or TZA.
Preferred Long ETF’s: IWM and TNA

Outs & Ins: EDU and TRU make their debut mid-week on the IBD 50. Both have visited the IBD 50 in past years. Neither are in a buy position.

LRCX, AMAT, ESNT and SBCF came to the top of the Fundamental Sort. If we get setups on the IBD 50 stocks make sure to know when earnings are scheduled. Being unaware of earnings can turn a great candidate into a dog very quickly. Don’t want to be holding with no profit cushion. Like the Indexes many of the IBD stocks joined the rally from last week and are now extended. Wait for pullbacks for potential entries. Keep an eye on the ZBRA breakout for pullback towards the breakout level of $93.24.
