What I See Next for Gold, Dollar & SPX

Last week we saw stocks move sharply higher as traders started to cover their short position which added fuel to an already oversold market ready to bounce. Overall volume was not that strong on the move up which is a bearish sign. On Friday afternoon we saw the SP500 continue to move into the $1075 resistance level on very light volume. This indicates to me that buyers are not willing to pay these higher prices because the market has moved up so quickly and the fact that it’s trading at a resistance level.

I feel the market will gap higher on Monday just like we say on June 20/21 deep into a resistance level and the big money will short the pop sending it sharply lower.

Gold looks to be shifting its momentum from a down trend to an uptrend. It’s forming a reverse head & shoulders pattern which is shown in the video posted below.

Weekend Conclusion:

In short is looks as thought the market is at a critical pivot point. We could see prices stall out here and continue the down trend or see strong buying step in sending prices higher in the equities market. We need to wait and see what type of price action unfolds in the coming days.

SP500 & Dow Intraday Charts & Futures Prices at Their Best

March 26, 2010
The market gapped higher this morning after yesterdays heavy selling. At this time the market (metals and indexes) are trading at resistance on light volume. This tells me people are a little spooked from yesterday and just do not want to buy at these lofty prices.

Stock Market Training Education

I am trying to provide you with more insight and trading tips/education because I know many of you enjoy it. So here is something some of you may find interesting…

Over the years I have found several things which happen repeatedly in the market. I always found it interesting that in an uptrend the market/commodity or stock tends to gap lower at the open the next day. And during a down trend the market tends to gap higher at the open.

Why is this? I don’t know for sure… but my thoughts are that the smart money (big guys & professional traders) manipulate the market using futures to artificially lower prices so they can buy more the at lower prices before everyone else jumps in. It’s similar but in the reverse during a bear market. Prices gap up so they can short more shares at a higher price before everyone starts selling again pushing prices lower.

I could be way off here as this is my personal opinion but I see it happen all the time… so whether I am right or wrong in my theory the fact is this price action happens.

Market Gap Trading Conclusion:

In short, the market gapped up today (not good)…
I see the dollar is now trading at a short term support level and metals are trading at resistance. So maybe something will come out of this for a short play…

I hope this short reports was of use for getting a feel of how the market moves and what I am looking for in low risk setups.

Have a great weekend everyone. I don’t see anything tradable other than this intraday low risk setup which just broke down as I write this sentence,  fun stuff…
