Some updated signal/sentiment charts:
Next week: OPEX, BOJ, FOMC. Nothing else matters. Front run time.
March 10, 2016
Closing Print: 7 years after the financial crisis lows central banks across the globe are more aggressive than ever in trying to stimulate growth and inflation in every way possible except letting markets be markets.
Today’s ECB announcement was absolutely massive and yet was rejected as both the Euro and European stocks reversed.
Both the BOJ and the ECB seem to find no popularity with their aggressive policies. Next week the FOMC is to decide whether to raise rates again. So far the results are somewhat unimpressive.:
When a 210 handle rally and massive new QE can’t get you more new highs versus new lows what will?
What if you’re a central bank and go all in and your currency still beats you?
DAX chart updated:
$ES and $YM futures post ECB:
March 9, 2016:
Closing Print: Thursday’s price discovery is all about Mario Draghi and his ECB team. The stakes are big as #DAX has not been to able regain its broken trend line. Tomorrow’s pre-market futures will largely be driven by how successful Draghi is in impressing markets with more stimulus.
$XVG: Monthly chart suggests no failure allowed
$SPX monthly: Since last Friday $SPX has rejected the monthly 25MA and is flirting with the monthly 5EMA. What happens next seems to depend on Mario Draghi tomorrow.
Is Mario coming too late this time?
All about Mario Draghi again tomorrow. He was the trigger for more upside in October. Can he repeat his magic? Markets certainly expect more stimulus:
March 8, 2016
Closing Print: Oddly enough there are still people who don’t believe in technical analysis. We started the day with a $RUT chart and here’s how the same chart now looks. QED:
Cumulative $NYAD vs $SPX
$BPSPX: First Blood
One key reason to love twitter: Learn and gain insights from others. Example: 2 aspects about the $RUT came my way yesterday. A key trend line sent to me yesterday morning by good friend Tim Knight ( @) and a McClellan oscillator I was unaware of (h/t @ ). Putting it altogether with my modest contribution here:
Per oscillator the $RUT is at its most overbought ever just as it reached a key trend line as well as the weekly 20MA. The implication: Any downside from here and the weekly 50MA and 100MA above will print a potentially bearish cross-over:
Is it relevant? Maybe, maybe not, but either way this index is extremely stretched for now and a renewed break below the weekly 200MA could have far reaching consequences:
Does this all look familiar? You tell me:
March 7, 2016
Closing Print: the magic always comes in the last few seconds. $SPX managed a close above 2000 with magic closing ramp. Small caps remain super strong and the battle for reconnect continues. The weekly 50MA looms above:
$RUT & $WLSH: Monthly MA reconnects in context of larger technical damage:
Bullish/Bearish allocation and money flows: Where are the buyers?
Markets closed the week with the 2nd highest weekly $NYMO close ever:
The last time that happened? January 2009. The peak reading then was 121.86 following a 15% one month rally:
Then this happened:
No idea if we follow suit here, but this is the historic reference.

Closing Print: The MA reconnect effort is continuing in mechanical fashion. Today the monthly 5EMA was tagged and the weekly 20MA is just above:
How mechanical? Judge for yourself:

March 2, 2016
Closing Print: The magic happens into the close. The $RUT weekly chart shows a tag into the weekly 200MA:
$DJW, Dow Jones Global Index: Tagging a key MA:
An over 10% rally off the lows and still Nasdaq has not managed to have a single day with more new highs than new lows in 2016:
$TRAN: Just rallied 7 weeks straight up into the weekly 20MA:
$NYMO has reached over 90 which represents a highly overbought level. However, more amazingly, if you look at $NYMO through the lens of a monthly chart there is no evidence of any correction ever having taken place in 2016. No red whatsoever:
March 1, 2016:
For weeks we have been talking about the big MA reconnects. Well, here they are, massive rally to start the month (just like last month) and $SPX reconnected with its monthly 5 EMA ( in after hours of course). The January open gap remains a target, whether it can get there on this run is an open question:
$ES hit its .618 fib today:
$OEX monthly MA cross updated:
$NYSI: Let’s just observe we’re not oversold any longer and this is the moment in time when bullish voices are again dominating the media landscape:
