Trading Plan for July 27, 2012



July 27, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY , DIA , QQQ

Pre-market update (updated 8:30am eastern):

European markets are trading 0.4% higher. 

Asian markets traded between 1.7% higher on average. 

US futures are moderately higher heading into the open. . 

Economic reports due out (all times are eastern): GDP (8:30am), Consumer Sentiment (9:55am)

Technical Outlook (SPX):

Huge day in the markets yesterday for the bulls, erasing the last 2, almost 3 days of weakness. 

Rally went all the way up to the resistance off of the downtrend from the 4/2 highs. 

A close above 1376, preferably above 1380 would mark a new high in the market and increase the bullishness in this market. 

With the recent break of the uptrend/channel that the market had been trading in, 

Nice Double bottom formed on the 30-min SPX chart.

While on the daily, you have a double top-formation coming together that could pose as trouble in the days ahead if confirmed with a close below 1334.

50-day moving average showing solid support over the past three trading sessions. 

At this point, SPX hasn't actually put in a 'lower-low' yet, and is therefore still in an uptrend overall. 

Because of this, you want to be careful about how bearish you get until there is a legitimate breakdown in the market and not merely a pullback (which is what recent selling is at this point). 

Bulls must hold 1329. A close below that level, and you have what would begin a new downtrend. 

Watch the SPRI that I posted this past Sunday and how it shows us near-ready for the reversal signal. 

Also note the price resistance the SPX is up against on the weekly chart. 

VIX pushed  back below 20, and remains under 18.
