Tomorrow’s Midterm Elections will likely determine if we are in a recovery mode or setting up for a bigger downturn in the market. The Image above is the weekly Spy Chart. In pulling it back on a large time frame you can see that we hit the same support that the market hit back in Feb.
However in looking at the differences we have had more downward trending weeks from the top before a bounce and the bounce has taken from that support line to 50 SMA (blue average line) at 275 before pulling back. Another crucial note is that these candles following the bounce are remaining below the averages. There is more volume in this round and the bounce candle has less volume than the red weeks prior.
This analysis leads me to believe we are in a Dead Cat Bounce Phase to a bigger downtrend. Another interesting fact is that we had the big FANG stocks reporting and almost all of them had selling after the earnings. Here are links to the Form 4s for $FB , $AMZN, $AAPL, $NFLX and $GOOGL And in looking at their charts almost all of them except for AAPL are below their 200 SMA (light blue line). That does not seem like a healty market to me.
Now it could be a coincidence that the CEOs and COOs are selling or maybe their advisors are saying go ahead a lock in profits on before we see more of a dramatic drop. Pretty much each of the FAANG stocks dropped on day of earnings. If they gapped up and the market thought they would be a good investment I believe we would have seen more upside to them.
In my daily scan of stocks I am seeing many more 52 week lows on stocks and very few breakouts of lifetime highs. So I am leaning bearish until the market starts spitting out data to prove otherwise. Here is a link to check out the daily highs and lows.
