Technical Analysis of S&P500 Emini Futures Weekly Chart
Moving Average Indicator: The market has been extremely bullish in recent weeks, however currently the market is consolidating at 2420-2430 level for last 6 weeks. This is bullish and positive for the long side trades. Any dips towards 2400-2410 can be used for buying. In fact all rates below 2420 are good buying opportunity, because 2440-2445 is most likely to come in July again, giving 20-25 points gain.
Momentum Indicator: Momentum (42.00) is above zero, indicating an overbought market. The long term trend, based on a 45 bar moving average, is UP. The short term trend, based on a 9 bar moving average, is UP. Momentum is in bullish territory and upmove is likely towards 2440-2450 by July end.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI) Indicator: The CCI (83.47) is in neutral territory. A signal is generated only when the CCI crosses above or below the neutral center region. CCI often misses the early part of a new move because of the large amount of time spent out of the market in the neutral region. Initiating signals when CCI crosses zero, rather than waiting for CCI to cross out of the neutral region can often help overcome this. Given this interpretation, CCI (83.47) is currently long. The current long position position will be reversed when the CCI crosses below zero.
RSI Indicator: RSI (65.48) is in neutral territory. The RSI indicator issues buy signals when the RSI line dips below the bottom line into the oversold zone; a sell signal is generated when the RSI rises above the top line into the overbought zone. However, this by itself isn’t a strong enough indication to signal a trade. Look for additional evidence before getting too bearish here.
MACD Indicator: MACD is in bearish territory, but has not issued a signal here. MACD generates a signal when the FastMA crosses above or below the SlowMA. The long term trend, based on a 45 bar moving average, is UP. The short term trend, based on a 9 bar moving average, is UP. MACD is in bearish territory.
Stochastic Indicator (Slow): The stochastic is in overbought territory (SlowK is at 80.39); this indicates a possible market drop is coming. The stochastic is bearish because the SlowK line is below the SlowD line. The long term trend is UP. The short term trend is UP. Even though the stochastic is signaling that the market is overbought, don’t be fooled looking for a top here because of this indicator. The stochastic indicator is only good at picking tops in a Bear Market (in which we are not). Exit long position only if some other indicator tells you to.
