The S&P 500 made another attempt at the new resistance level of 2000, but reversal below the previous day's close warns that sellers dominate. 21-Day Twiggs Money Flow peaks below zero highlight medium-term selling pressure. Recovery above 2000 is unlikely but would indicate a relieving rally. Breach of short-term support at 1900 would warn of another decline; failure of 1870 would confirm.
* Target calculation: 1900 - ( 2000 - 1900 ) = 1800
The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) above 25 indicates elevated market risk continues.
Dow Jones Industrial Average is testing support at 16000. Breach would confirm a primary down-trend. Reversal of 13-week Twiggs Money Flow below zero would further strengthen the signal. Recovery above 17000 is unlikely, but would indicate a relieving rally.
Canada's TSX 60 retreated below 800, warning of another decline. Follow-through below 790 would confirm a primary down-trend. Declining 13-week Twiggs Momentum below zero already indicates a bear market. Recovery above 820 is unlikely, but would indicate a relieving rally.
* Target calculation: 800 - ( 900 - 800 ) = 700
Germany's DAX made a false break above 10400, warning that sellers dominate. Respect of the zero line by 21-day Twiggs Money Flow indicates strong medium-term selling pressure. Reversal below 10000 would signal a primary down-trend.
The Footsie is testing resistance at 6250. Breakout would signal a relieving rally. But this is still a bear market and respect of the zero line (from below) by 21-day Twiggs Money Flow would warn of strong (medium-term) selling pressure. Reversal below 6000 would warn of another decline. Follow-through below 5900 would confirm a primary down-trend.
The Shanghai Composite Index continues to test support at 3000. Declining 13-week Twiggs Momentum below zero indicates a primary down-trend.
Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index recovered above 21000 and is likely to test the former primary support level at 23000. Declining 13-week Twiggs Money Flow (below zero) confirms long-term selling pressure. This is a bear rally and reversal below 21000 would signal another decline.
Japan's Nikkei 225 is headed for a test of resistance at 19000 after finding support at 17500. The strong blue candle is a bullish sign and breakout above 19000 would signal another test of resistance at 21000. Recovery of 21-day Twiggs Money Flow above zero would indicate medium-term buying pressure; respect is less likely but would warn of another decline.
* Target calculation: 19000 + ( 19000 - 17500 ) = 20500
India's Sensex commenced a bear rally, heading for a test of the new resistance level at 26500. 13-Week Twiggs Money Flow above zero indicates medium-term buying pressure. Recovery above 26500 is unlikely, but would warn of a bear trap. Respect of resistance would suggest another decline. Breach of support at 25000 would signal a bear market; reversal of 13-week Twiggs Money Flow below zero would confirm.
* Target calculation: 25000 - ( 26500 - 25000 ) = 23500
A bearish engulfing candlestick on the ASX 200 warns of another test of primary support at 5000. Reversal of 21-day Twiggs Money Flow below zero would indicate medium-term selling pressure. Breach of 5000 would confirm a primary down-trend. Recovery above 5300 is unlikely at this stage, but would indicate a bear rally.
* Target calculation: 5000 - ( 5400 - 5000 ) = 4600
To others, being wrong is a source of shame; to me, recognizing my mistakes is a source of pride. Once we realize that imperfect understanding is the human condition, there is no shame in being wrong, only in failing to correct our mistakes.
