The market is wanting to rise in the short term as earnings season begins in earnest.
Last week I posed the question of whether this will end up being a bear trap, and suggested not to try to think too far ahead. Same applies this week.
JP Morgan announced yesterday, and good revenue numbers were accompanied by increasing provisions against expected future defaults. That means it expects increases in bad debts to follow. The market has elected to see the glass half full … for now.
In today’s OVI Market Review I’ll reference a number of stocks as we usually do. As per last week, most of the more obvious setups are to the bullish side, but still make sure you manage you trades very conservatively, protecting any profits quickly.
In the short term I expect the recent upward momentum to continue.
Watch the video for more detail.
The Main Indices:
The SPY has taken out its 50-dma and is now resting just above its 200-dma.
The QQQ – last time I mentioned its short term upside was likely a bit beyond its 50-dma. That’s happened. There’s probably more juice in that.
The IWM continues to move decisively, taking out its 50-dma and 200-dma last week.
As I mentioned earlier, the market is in the mood for further short-term upside, but you still need to be vigilant with your profit protection.
- Longer Term Market Timer (OVIsi): Amber, and will likely stay amber for this coming week.
- Medium Term Swing Timer: Positive and not overbought.
- SPY OVI: Neutral
A short term breather and waterfall setup looked on for the S&P after Tuesday, but Wednesday saw a decisive move to the upside. That looks likely to continue in the short term.
