U.S. Indices Technical Outlook:
- S&P 500 trading above resistance back to January
- Nasdaq 100 inching above the 200-day moving average
- Dow Jones also reclaimed its 200-day MA
Dow Jones, Nasdaq 100, S&P 500 Technical Outlook
The S&P 500 has been relentlessly pushing higher since the mid-March low, and on that it has cleared the 200-day with relative ease and now above another set of resistance from Jan/Feb around 4595. The market is extended, but it’s hard to fight strong upward momentum.
This doesn’t make for an easy position for those looking to enter long as a retracement could set in at any time, but shorting doesn’t have any appeal too in the absence of substantial resistance. A pullback and hold around 4595 could do some good for a continuation trade.
If this scenario is to unfold it would be ideal that the market rests for a few days on or above support. This would help work off short-term overbought conditions and provide a floor for assessing risk on new entries.
S&P 500 Daily Chart
The Nasdaq 100 just nudged above the 200-day moving average and is trading around the Feb peak at 15196. Momentum is strong, but we could see a retracement set in at any time. If long from lower levels, perhaps a trailing stop strategy would be a good idea. As far as new longs, looks best to wait, and as far as shorts are concerned nothing appealing about the current situation from where I sit.
Nasdaq 100 Daily Chart
The Dow Jones also climbed above its 200-day yesterday, and on that it has room to go before it runs into its next level of resistance around 35824. If we see a run to that point and reversal on a failure to climb above, it could offer a short set-up. On a dip watch how price reacts to the 200-day retest. A period of consolidation above the 200 could do the Dow some good.
