The S&P 500 continues to threaten a correction. Bearish divergence on 21-day Twiggs Money Flow indicates medium-term selling pressure. Breach of support at 1840 would confirm a correction, while recovery above 1880 would signal an advance to 1950*.
* Target calculation: 1850 + ( 1850 - 1750 ) = 1950
CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) at 15, however, suggests low market risk.
The Nasdaq 100 already indicates a correction after bearish divergence on 21-day Twiggs Money Flow and breach of support at 3640. Follow-through below 3600 would confirm, warning of a test of primary support at 3400/3420. Recovery above 3650, however, would signal that all bets are off.
* Target calculation: 3600 + ( 3600 - 3400 ) = 3800
Bellwether Transport stock Fedex is headed for another test of primary support at $129/$130 on the monthly chart. Recovery above $145 would offer a target of $170*, but breach of support would warn of a primary down-trend — suggesting a broad economic slow-down. Breach of the (secondary) rising trendline, and support at $120, would strengthen the signal.
* Target calculation: 145 + ( 145 - 120 ) = 170
Canada's TSX 60 is testing resistance at 820 on the monthly chart. Sharp divergence on 13-week Twiggs Money Flow warns of medium-term selling pressure. Reversal below 814 would warn of a correction, while follow-through above 826 would signal an advance to 850*.
* Target calculation: 810 + ( 810 - 770 ) = 850
Russia has made its choice in favor of democracy. Fourteen years ago, independently, without any pressure from outside, it made that decision in the interests of itself and interests of its people — of its citizens. This is our final choice, and we have no way back.
