02 Apr Weekly Forecasts and Trading Ideas Report
Weekly Forecast and Trade Ideas Report for April 1st
This past week we tested the 200 day moving average line on the SP 500 near 2585. A re-test of the 2532 area and or a lower drop to 2462 remains possible for the 2nd quarter. With that said, this 4th wave correction has formed a classic A B C pattern so far, with this C wave low truncated so far. This for now means the bottom of the C wave at 2585 is higher than the 2532 low of the A wave. This would be a rare occurrence, so we remain on guard for an eventual test of 2532 or lower.
On a positive note we are bouncing off 40 week EMA lines on the weekly charts (Similar to 200 day moving averages) and the same holds true for the Biotech sector (XBI ETF). Gold is also in a 5 wave triangle and still bullish on weekly charts until proven otherwise.
Some stocks like Facebook and even Google appear to be in trouble on long term charts, whereas Amazon and Netflix are still OK.
This week we have charts on SP 500 weekly, Biotech (XBI ETF) Weekly, Gold Weekly, and a Nasdaq Oscillator indicator showing extreme readings recently such as we have seen at major prior lows over last two years. We also have the CNN Fear/Greed index chart also at extreme historical readings, a contrarian bullish indicator.
A new quarter begins on Monday, often fresh money flows in… The Bulls will try to regain control. We also have a large list of Swing Trade Candidates this week, interesting in its own right. Lets see how things play out…
SP 500: Holding 40 week EMA line
Biotech: XBI ETF Holding 40 week EMA
CNN Fear Chart: Near all time lows on a relative basis
NASDAQ Oscillator: Relatively near major prior lows
GOLD: Holding 5 wave triangle pattern
Many readings are near or at historic lows. The Bulls need to take control here soon as we start the new quarter.
We could still get one more washout in the 2nd quarter to 2532 or 2462 areas, but for now 200 day MA line holds.
Bulls are at 47% in Surveys for Advisors, down from 68% highs, Bears only at 17% though.
Most charts for now are holding long term uptrend lines
