Trading updates

U.S. Stocks traded more or less sideways as markets await the FOMC meeting decision outcome. Earnings so far for the Index have been mixed, though revenue has definitely been on the disappointing side. Currently, no change in the Fed funds rate is expected with no change expected to the follow on statement. For now, a consolidation for the Index continues to be on the cards making the green path still the most likely path in the week ahead in our opinion. However, as previously stated a break of the 1940/50 level would automatically mean the red path is playing out, and the really bearish scenario would play out over the course of the next few weeks, so this coming pullback is very crucial to the S&P 500 with the 1940/1950 a key level to watch on the downside. We have included a longer term picture for your reference to see where the red and green path are likely to end depending on which is playing out, to help better understand the longer term implications of the next move down.

Watch SP500 at 1706

Red: The Index falls from current levels to test the 1706 level with a potential to extend to the 1573.75 level. This would still not invalidate a longer term bullish scenario, with the bounce that follows likely a determinant of the longer term trend

Watch SP500 at 2100

SP500 @ 2100

Green: The Index begins a decline from current levels with a potential to move as high as 2100 before declining. The Index should stay above 1940 before moving onto new highs in the 2200-2300 region as illustrated in the longer term chart.

Stock pick of this week!


For this week’s Stock Pick, we are looking at a potential Long Position or a Potential Short Position on TWX-NYSE. The Time Warner Inc Company Stock price movement over the last couple of weeks has formed a Bullish Flag on a Daily time frame as can be seen on the chart below. But we cannot ignore the overall long term Bearish trend of this stock. This is exactly the same type of setup as last weeks Stock pick of the week on HPQ-NYSE which is still within its range and therefore an active trade possibility.

Watch $TWX Target Price at $82.00

$TWX @ $82.00

1. Potential Long Position – TWX-NYSE – This Bullish flag on the Daily time frame would suggest a continuation of the Bullish move and so a move above the $74.22 price would definitely break the contraction phase and my conservative trigger above the 6/4 MA High Line (Blue MA line) is now in play. A Stop Buy Order around $74.25 would therefore be a good entry for this potential Long Position for the Stock Pick of the week, TWX-NYSE, as seen on the chart below. Target Price would be $82.00.

2. Potential Short Position – TWX-NYSE – Conversely we cannot ignore that the overall and long term trend for this stock is Bearish and the Resistance level below the $70.50 price could hold to confirm the Wave 4 pullback on the potential 5 wave Bearish move. More confirmation is need for a Short trade so a close below my conservative 6/4 MA Low line would be needed (Red MA line). So a conservative entry would be a Stop Sell Order around the $70.47 with a potential Target price of $61.00.
