Does it surprise you how much these patterns and price action looks very much the same in the S&P 500 and NDX over the past few years?

Time will tell how key last week was, as both stock index's were at support, creating bullish wicks and both fear index's did the opposite, creating bearish wicks at falling resistance.

Premium Members shorted fear last Wednesday due to the patterns, with stops on this new position at fear resistance levels.

“CDCC indicator” – watching it closely for macro clues!

 cdccindicator2imageoct20

 

I am keeping a very close eye on the CDCC indicator for macro signs about the economy right now.

When it comes to performance this year nothing is hotter than Coffee & Cattle, as they are up 83% and 43% respectively as of this morning. The 4-pack below looks at these hot performing assets and two other key assets as well.

When it comes to investing, global confidence or lack of is very important. This 4-pack above looks at Cattle, Dow, Coffee and Copper.

Cattle is facing resistance at the top of rising wedge pattern, the Dow is at the top of a Mega-Phone pattern and could be breaking support, Coffee might be forming a monthly bearish wick at its 61% Fib retracement level and Dr. Copper looks to be forming a bearish descending triangle that two-thirds of this time results in lower prices. 

With technology being what it is, none of us are lacking for information, if anything it is easy to be overwhelmed by it. This 4-pack simply looks at pattern messages from some key assets of our lives, that say a ton about confidence or lack of.

In my humble opinion, what the CDCC indicator does in the weeks ahead is very important for the macro picture!

Bullish Wick In Germany, Could Help The S&P, Says Joe Friday

The DAX and S&P 500 have been in leadership roles on the upside for the past few years. Over the past four months the DAX index has declined a little over 10%, influencing the S&P 500 and much of Europe.

London & France has followed the DAX lower, pushing bullish sentiment in the United Kingdom to levels seldom seen in the past 5-years.

This week a bullish wick looks to be in play at dual support. This pattern could be good for the German ETF (EWG) 

Joe Friday...What happens in the DAX from this point forward (will dual support remain in place) will greatly influence future prices in the S&P 500!
