2016-06-23 15:59:31 fib1618: Tally Ho!
2016-06-23 15:59:42 fib1618: how is everyone? 2016-06-23 16:02:21 thespookyone: Great, you, LOL 2016-06-23 16:02:42 fib1618: votes so far in the UK...55% stay, 46% leave 2016-06-23 16:02:51 thespookyone: thx 2016-06-23 16:03:09 fib1618: 2 "precincts" in... 2016-06-23 16:03:26 fib1618: if anyone wants to follow the vote in real time 2016-06-23 16:03:54 fib1618: go to http://pluto.tv/watch/sky-news 2016-06-23 16:04:14 fib1618: OK...any questions or comments before we get started?? 2016-06-23 16:05:30 thespookyone: Will probably move the market a bit, no? 2016-06-23 16:06:14 fib1618: well...the currency markets would likely be the most sensitive 2016-06-23 16:06:26 fib1618: as they go...so will the rest of the financials 2016-06-23 16:07:15 fib1618: but stay or go...this is not the first vote we'll have on this...there are 2 or 3 other "countries" that are close to voting on the same referendum...in or out 2016-06-23 16:07:34 thespookyone: may take a bit of fear out of gold, as well 2016-06-23 16:07:42 fib1618: big turnout though...about 70% 2016-06-23 16:07:52 fib1618: maybe 2016-06-23 16:07:56 fib1618: if the dollar slides, but I would think that it would be a safe haven 2016-06-23 16:08:05 fib1618: still too early though to know for sure 2016-06-23 16:08:12 thespookyone: yep 2016-06-23 16:08:18 fib1618: but if anyone is trading overnights, this is the channel to watch 2016-06-23 16:08:33 thespookyone: My friends in the UK are split at their houses-no help, LOL 2016-06-23 16:08:40 fib1618: 2016-06-23 16:08:50 fib1618: whether the EU collapses now or later 2016-06-23 16:08:57 thespookyone: strong emotions, too 2016-06-23 16:09:05 fib1618: this vote is whether or not the UK will fall with it 2016-06-23 16:09:17 thespookyone: wow, good call 2016-06-23 16:09:20 fib1618: the bottom line is, like here, it's an immigration problem that is the backbone of the referendum 2016-06-23 16:09:46 fib1618: OK...let's see what the market participants think 2016-06-23 16:09:51 fib1618: and get SC up 2016-06-23 16:10:42 fib1618: well...we got our small point resolution today 2016-06-23 16:10:43 fib1618: 2016-06-23 16:10:46 fib1618: OK... 2016-06-23 16:11:06 fib1618: after moving back below the zero line on Tuesday 2016-06-23 16:11:21 fib1618: the NYSE CO breadth MCO has now moved sharply back above this line of neutrality 2016-06-23 16:11:41 fib1618: with a crossover buy signal generated on the NYSE CO MCO components 2016-06-23 16:11:48 fib1618: so back to a technical buy signal today 2016-06-23 16:12:06 fib1618: looking at the 21 day close up chart 2016-06-23 16:12:29 fib1618: and we see that the NYSE CO breadth MCSUM has also moved above the sideways pattern seen earlier in the week 2016-06-23 16:12:53 fib1618: and this would suggest that a decision has been made...and we're in for a week or so of rally 2016-06-23 16:13:18 fib1618: we would like to see some upside follow through though before getting too excited 2016-06-23 16:13:30 fib1618: but today was a good character day for the CO bulls 2016-06-23 16:13:47 fib1618: let's see how the NYSE Composite breadth MCO did 2016-06-23 16:14:19 fib1618: and it too saw a breadth thrust back above its zero line today 2016-06-23 16:14:22 fib1618: though like the CO MCO 2016-06-23 16:14:28 fib1618: stopping short of the +25 level 2016-06-23 16:14:59 fib1618: looks like that the +750 level on the NYSE breadth MCSUM is also going to hold for now 2016-06-23 16:15:24 fib1618: and we now have a nice crossover buy signal as well in the NYSE MCO components 2016-06-23 16:15:37 fib1618: looking at the NYA price chart 2016-06-23 16:15:51 fib1618: and we see that we closed at the highs of the day 2016-06-23 16:16:09 fib1618: and the high point seen in the early part of the month 2016-06-23 16:16:13 fib1618: so far then 2016-06-23 16:16:44 fib1618: our expectation of some back and fill early this week looks to have turned into our next advance in the price structure 2016-06-23 16:16:57 fib1618: and if this road map were to continue 2016-06-23 16:17:33 fib1618: we should see prices advance going into the holiday weekend coming up next Friday 2016-06-23 16:18:03 fib1618: moving to the NASDAQ breadth MCO 2016-06-23 16:18:13 fib1618: and here we also saw a thrust back above the zero line today 2016-06-23 16:19:00 fib1618: with a crossover buy signal generated on the NASDAQ MCO components 2016-06-23 16:19:14 fib1618: looking at the price chart and any close of the downside gap seen earlier in the month would pretty much cancel out the SOB idea 2016-06-23 16:20:17 fib1618: with any take out of the 4980 level probably accelerating the upside sequence 2016-06-23 16:20:39 fib1618: so far...looking good for the "in" crowd 2016-06-23 16:21:33 fib1618: whoops...and now it looks like we have a slight flip now with the "out" crowd leading 2016-06-23 16:21:44 fib1618: the Pound is now tanking 2016-06-23 16:22:11 fib1618: amazing to think that we're witnessing world history right now 2016-06-23 16:22:19 fib1618: back to work 2016-06-23 16:22:45 fib1618: moving to the NDX breadth MCO 2016-06-23 16:22:54 fib1618: and here we had quite a spurt to the upside today 2016-06-23 16:23:08 fib1618: finishing with a reading of +32 2016-06-23 16:23:21 fib1618: good technical action as well in the NDX MCO components 2016-06-23 16:23:29 fib1618: with a crossover buy signal generated 2016-06-23 16:23:49 fib1618: and as we look at the 21 day close up chart of the NDX breadth MCSUM 2016-06-23 16:24:06 fib1618: we see that it bounced just above the +250 level 2016-06-23 16:24:27 fib1618: and it's now trying to close its first gap resistance zone 2016-06-23 16:25:08 fib1618: nice looking breadth thrust today in the SPX breadth MCO 2016-06-23 16:25:37 fib1618: curious as to what breadth plurality was today...one sec 2016-06-23 16:25:57 fib1618: 4.86:1 2016-06-23 16:26:18 fib1618: and a big 3.58:1 for the NASDAQ 2016-06-23 16:26:23 fib1618: that's good buying 2016-06-23 16:26:32 fib1618: or was it short covering? 2016-06-23 16:26:41 fib1618: we'll try to figure that out later 2016-06-23 16:27:01 fib1618: for the SPX buyers 2016-06-23 16:27:46 fib1618: they will need to take out the early June highs at +46, and ideally above +50, for there to be a breakout 2016-06-23 16:28:03 fib1618: or in this specific case 2016-06-23 16:28:08 fib1618: new all time highs in the SPX itself 2016-06-23 16:29:06 fib1618: moving to the OEX breadth MCO 2016-06-23 16:29:25 fib1618: and here we did clear above the beginning June highs today 2016-06-23 16:29:33 fib1618: and this is a highly bullish event 2016-06-23 16:29:35 fib1618: however 2016-06-23 16:29:44 fib1618: we still need the broader market to confirm 2016-06-23 16:29:50 fib1618: until then 2016-06-23 16:30:04 fib1618: this is a flashing caution sign for the market bulls 2016-06-23 16:30:41 fib1618: as we don't want to see the top brass clearing the path for the soldiers...it should be the other way around 2016-06-23 16:30:56 fib1618: also a bit of a problem 2016-06-23 16:31:10 fib1618: is that the OEX MCO components have yet to move above the early June highs 2016-06-23 16:31:26 fib1618: and this internal divergence usually leads to a reset 2016-06-23 16:32:07 fib1618: still...we have good texture with the OEX MCO pattern 2016-06-23 16:32:19 fib1618: so we'll tip our hat to it as to what it may suggest 2016-06-23 16:32:52 fib1618: snapback to the zero line on Wednesday led to a breadth thrust today in the Dow breadth MCO 2016-06-23 16:33:09 fib1618: but it remains below the beginning June highs 2016-06-23 16:33:24 fib1618: and this is another non confirmation within the top brass 2016-06-23 16:33:40 fib1618: the bulls then have to be very careful in not leading off 2016-06-23 16:35:46 fib1618: another little problem for the buyers is that the Dow did move to new reaction price highs today 2016-06-23 16:36:03 fib1618: but it wasn't with the benefit of the OEX and SPX basket of issues 2016-06-23 16:36:40 fib1618: that's a problem as the Dow tends to peak out last either in uptrends or downtrends 2016-06-23 16:36:51 fib1618: so we'll watch that on Friday 2016-06-23 16:37:13 fib1618: as with the other indices tonight 2016-06-23 16:37:35 fib1618: the MID breadth MCO is showing a constructive pattern of texture in its current sequence 2016-06-23 16:37:56 fib1618: but until it goes beyond the +25 level 2016-06-23 16:38:17 fib1618: this could one of the bull traps that we've seen happen many times in the past 2016-06-23 16:38:32 fib1618: on the positive side 2016-06-23 16:38:50 fib1618: we did generate a crossover buy signal in the MID MCO components 2016-06-23 16:39:12 fib1618: but looking at the 21 day close up chart of the MID breadth MCSUM 2016-06-23 16:39:39 fib1618: we see that it hasn't, as yet, cleared above the Friday/Monday consolidation/hesitation pattern 2016-06-23 16:40:26 fib1618: there was enough internal strength today to generated a minimal buy signal on the SML breadth MCO and its components 2016-06-23 16:40:59 fib1618: but it wasn't enough for the price action to take out the intraday highs of Monday 2016-06-23 16:41:06 fib1618: which would had triggered a buy stop 2016-06-23 16:41:42 fib1618: need more dynamics there...I don't trust the pattern 2016-06-23 16:41:56 fib1618: it looks "manufactured" 2016-06-23 16:42:34 fib1618: and the TM breadth MCO joined the rest of the indices by moving back above its zero line today 2016-06-23 16:43:01 fib1618: after finding snapback resistance at or near its zero line on Tuesday and falling back a bit from that line on Wednesday 2016-06-23 16:43:22 fib1618: crossover buy signal there was well on the components 2016-06-23 16:43:29 fib1618: but with the TM MCO reading of only +13. 2016-06-23 16:43:52 fib1618: there isn't enough energy as yet to suggest that have seen an important low 2016-06-23 16:43:56 fib1618: so... 2016-06-23 16:44:12 fib1618: as far as our ongoing blueprint for the month of June goes...so far, so good 2016-06-23 16:44:38 fib1618: but there some problems near term that need to be sorted quickly before we can move long again with confidence 2016-06-23 16:44:52 fib1618: let me go out of turn and check the BETS...brb 2016-06-23 16:46:05 fib1618: +65 2016-06-23 16:46:20 fib1618: so if that holds on Friday, we have a renewed buy signal 2016-06-23 16:46:29 fib1618: OK...sectors 2016-06-23 16:47:23 fib1618: the XLY breadth MCO is supporting a bullish structure 2016-06-23 16:47:37 fib1618: but it finished today with a reading of +50 2016-06-23 16:47:47 fib1618: what makes this important is two fold 2016-06-23 16:48:11 fib1618: first is that we don't usually see prices trend until we move above this important level in the MCO 2016-06-23 16:48:48 fib1618: and second...if this natural area of resistance holds, the XLY breadth MCSUM won't be able to move back above its zero line 2016-06-23 16:49:12 fib1618: and prices will tend to take an abrupt turn to the downside if this should take place 2016-06-23 16:49:52 fib1618: short term though...things look bullish with the crossover buy in the components 2016-06-23 16:50:06 fib1618: so we'll have to see if there's any follow through or not on Friday 2016-06-23 16:51:20 fib1618: not surprisingly we had new all time closing highs today in the XLP index 2016-06-23 16:51:34 fib1618: as money continues to support basic, everyday staples 2016-06-23 16:51:59 fib1618: with the XLP breadth MCO showing good structure in its pattern sequence 2016-06-23 16:52:52 fib1618: one more good push by the buyers in the next day or so could really trigger an impressive advance in the price index 2016-06-23 16:53:03 fib1618: so we remain friendly there 2016-06-23 16:53:35 fib1618: back to a buy signal on the XLE breadth MCO 2016-06-23 16:54:12 fib1618: but we'll need to see the pattern take out the early June highs of +45 before we'll be able to forecast new upside price objectives 2016-06-23 16:54:49 fib1618: and this would be helped by the XLE breadth MCSUM finding good support at the +250 level 2016-06-23 16:55:05 fib1618: as it has now turned "the cruise ship around" to the upside 2016-06-23 16:55:57 fib1618: so a take out of the early June highs would also mean that prices will be able to move above $70...and stay there 2016-06-23 16:56:18 fib1618: well, well, just look at what we got here! 2016-06-23 16:56:36 fib1618: all of a sudden there's been new life injected into the XLF breadth MCO 2016-06-23 16:57:05 fib1618: but we'll need another day of follow through above today's close of +52 to confirm the change in direction 2016-06-23 16:57:27 fib1618: for now...a challenge of the early June highs is likely 2016-06-23 16:57:44 fib1618: but that's only .50 from current levels 2016-06-23 16:57:49 fib1618: not much to work with still 2016-06-23 16:57:53 fib1618: so standing aside continues to be the best option 2016-06-23 16:58:38 fib1618: "out" still leading in the UK 2016-06-23 16:59:21 fib1618: the XLV breadth MCO has now snapped back to its zero line now 2016-06-23 16:59:44 fib1618: and we have a crossover buy signal there as well in the components 2016-06-23 17:00:12 fib1618: but until we can get back above the +40 level 2016-06-23 17:00:31 fib1618: we'll call this a simple technical snapback from a deeply "oversold" extreme 2016-06-23 17:01:00 fib1618: buy signal as well in the XLI breadth MCO and components 2016-06-23 17:01:43 fib1618: but the pattern's texture isn't as strong as it should be 2016-06-23 17:02:18 fib1618: as we see too much play, both above and below, the zero line before today's push higher 2016-06-23 17:03:24 fib1618: like the other charts tonight 2016-06-23 17:03:40 fib1618: the XLB breadth MCO and components generated a short term buy signal as well 2016-06-23 17:03:54 fib1618: but this MCO only made it to a +23 2016-06-23 17:04:00 fib1618: it's good...just not good enough 2016-06-23 17:04:25 fib1618: plus we don't have any back and fill as yet in the sequence 2016-06-23 17:05:04 fib1618: and it's rare to see us keep going here after a reading as low as the one we saw last week at -96 2016-06-23 17:05:21 fib1618: looks more like short covering today than fresh buying now 2016-06-23 17:05:41 fib1618: still seeing some good action in the XLK breadth MCO 2016-06-23 17:06:23 fib1618: but it still has some hurdles above current levels that will need to sorted before we'll call this one "in the clear" 2016-06-23 17:07:03 fib1618: and now the price pattern structure in the XLU appears to be showing a rounding top formation 2016-06-23 17:07:27 fib1618: though the XLU breadth MCO did find support today at the -51 level 2016-06-23 17:07:32 fib1618: so if we hold that 2016-06-23 17:07:43 fib1618: and then move back above +32 2016-06-23 17:08:03 fib1618: then like the XLP, this is another defensive sector that could see a nice run to the upside 2016-06-23 17:08:06 fib1618: so... 2016-06-23 17:08:27 fib1618: although we're seeing some nice texture in many of the breadth MCO's 2016-06-23 17:09:08 fib1618: we're still a bit short from saying that we're going to see higher highs into next week with any kind of confidence 2016-06-23 17:09:58 fib1618: that confidence will either be confirmed on Friday...or we'll see some sort of reset, which could take the form of a knee jerk panic, if things don't go quite right overseas 2016-06-23 17:10:16 fib1618: "out" now leading by 3% 2016-06-23 17:10:30 fib1618: 19,000 votes 2016-06-23 17:10:49 fib1618: but the major populations won't be heard from for a couple more hours 2016-06-23 17:10:59 fib1618: and that's where the rub lies 2016-06-23 17:11:15 fib1618: let's take a quick look at the volume McClellan's 2016-06-23 17:11:56 fib1618: we're getting good strength in the NYSE volume MCO's...especially the composite 2016-06-23 17:12:08 fib1618: which settled today with a +32 reading 2016-06-23 17:12:19 fib1618: market appears to also be in sync to the upside as well 2016-06-23 17:12:49 fib1618: same with the NASDAQ volume MCO which is leading to the upside 2016-06-23 17:13:01 fib1618: just need confirmation there 2016-06-23 17:13:22 fib1618: the NDX volume MCO is up to the +24 level 2016-06-23 17:13:27 fib1618: need to see follow through there 2016-06-23 17:13:49 fib1618: we have good up volume plurality right now 2016-06-23 17:13:51 fib1618: so that's bullish 2016-06-23 17:14:02 fib1618: same with the SPX volume MCO 2016-06-23 17:14:29 fib1618: could have a ledge formation working with the NDX and SPX volume MCSUM's 2016-06-23 17:14:39 fib1618: so we need a quick gap expansion to the upside to cancel that 2016-06-23 17:15:09 fib1618: strong upside move as well in the OEX volume MCO 2016-06-23 17:15:20 fib1618: but it's lagging its breadth cousin in relation to the early June highs 2016-06-23 17:15:32 fib1618: so that's a problem that will need to be resolved...and could be part of a bull trap 2016-06-23 17:16:01 fib1618: the Dow volume MCO had a good day today 2016-06-23 17:16:08 fib1618: but is it too far, too fast? 2016-06-23 17:16:23 fib1618: MID volume MCO at +27 2016-06-23 17:16:39 fib1618: about as far as it can go for the sellers before they lose control 2016-06-23 17:16:48 fib1618: oh boy 2016-06-23 17:17:02 fib1618: and we barely made it back to the zero line in the SML volume MCO 2016-06-23 17:17:13 fib1618: with a reading of +5 2016-06-23 17:17:32 fib1618: oh...we also have Russell re-balance on Friday 2016-06-23 17:17:43 fib1618: so we have to watch out there 2016-06-23 17:18:01 fib1618: as this could be artificially holding things back for the small caps 2016-06-23 17:18:07 fib1618: we'll know by Monday on that 2016-06-23 17:18:26 fib1618: and a +24 reading on the TM volume MCO 2016-06-23 17:18:35 fib1618: and up against natural resistance 2016-06-23 17:18:39 fib1618: so... 2016-06-23 17:18:46 fib1618: as we noted on Tuesday 2016-06-23 17:18:50 fib1618: the market wants to go higher 2016-06-23 17:18:59 fib1618: and has set itself up to do just that 2016-06-23 17:19:27 fib1618: but we don't have, as yet, enough broader market thrust to keep us from further backing and filling 2016-06-23 17:19:51 fib1618: moving to the OBV's 2016-06-23 17:20:24 fib1618: and we have climactic activity on the CVI's today 2016-06-23 17:20:34 fib1618: so we should see a price top in the next 2 trading days 2016-06-23 17:21:00 fib1618: and we'll call the STVO's minimally "overbought" after being "oversold" on Tuesday 2016-06-23 17:21:27 fib1618: and the VTO's neutral and waiting for one side to take control 2016-06-23 17:21:42 fib1618: based on this...we likely saw short covering today 2016-06-23 17:21:50 fib1618: moving to the TRIN's 2016-06-23 17:22:03 fib1618: gawd... 2016-06-23 17:22:08 fib1618: NYSE TRIN at .53 2016-06-23 17:22:10 fib1618: short covering 2016-06-23 17:22:20 fib1618: Open 10 at .98 2016-06-23 17:22:31 fib1618: so any pullback here is likely to be short lived 2016-06-23 17:22:51 fib1618: like an emotional knee jerk response of an "out" vote? 2016-06-23 17:23:03 fib1618: NASDAQ TRIN at .62 2016-06-23 17:23:06 fib1618: short covering 2016-06-23 17:23:15 fib1618: Open 10 at .92 2016-06-23 17:23:25 fib1618: TM TRIN at .59 2016-06-23 17:23:36 fib1618: Open 10 at .96 2016-06-23 17:23:39 fib1618: so... 2016-06-23 17:23:48 fib1618: near term we are back to climactic activity 2016-06-23 17:24:00 fib1618: so even if we do have a break to the upside on Friday 2016-06-23 17:24:11 fib1618: it's likely to flame out early next week 2016-06-23 17:24:25 fib1618: market seems to be moving on emotion now 2016-06-23 17:24:44 fib1618: with, what looks to be, the anticipation of a positive "stay" outcome in the UK 2016-06-23 17:24:55 fib1618: but that bet may had been premature 2016-06-23 17:25:05 fib1618: intermediate term though 2016-06-23 17:25:24 fib1618: we remain buoyant enough to withstand any kind of disappointment that may come of it 2016-06-23 17:25:36 fib1618: and after any shake out that may occur 2016-06-23 17:25:53 fib1618: liquidity says that we should still see a rally into next Friday 2016-06-23 17:26:15 fib1618: near term cloudy, with a chance of stormy weather 2016-06-23 17:26:26 fib1618: but mostly sunny after this passes 2016-06-23 17:26:36 fib1618: we'll see what happens 2016-06-23 17:26:43 fib1618: anything else? 2016-06-23 17:27:02 fib1618: now 51% out, 49% in 2016-06-23 17:27:40 fib1618: it's now 1:30 in the morning local time in the UK 2016-06-23 17:28:08 fib1618: so we should have a pretty good handle on things in the next 4 hours 2016-06-23 17:28:12 fib1618: checking futures 2016-06-23 17:28:33 fib1618: Dow down 47 2016-06-23 17:28:36 fib1618: SPX down 7 2016-06-23 17:28:51 fib1618: maybe a blow off today...spidey sense tingling 2016-06-23 17:29:12 fib1618: <shrug> 2016-06-23 17:29:34 fib1618: just remain disciplined and remember what money is telling us... 2016-06-23 17:29:42 fib1618: good follow through to the upside on Friday, and we should see the all time highs challenged in many of the major indices 2016-06-23 17:30:03 fib1618: disappointment, and we back and fill for a day or so 2016-06-23 17:30:26 fib1618: but it shouldn't lead to anything important to the downside for the time being 2016-06-23 17:30:50 fib1618: anything else? 2016-06-23 17:31:04 fib1618: again you can watch the returns live on Sky News 2016-06-23 17:31:25 fib1618: OK...if there's nothing else 2016-06-23 17:31:30 fib1618: I'm going to take off 2016-06-23 17:31:35 fib1618: everyone have a great weekend 2016-06-23 17:31:44 fib1618: and we'll see what we have to work with on Tuesday 2016-06-23 17:31:46 fib1618: good night __________________ Dave's LinkedIn Profile Technical Watch Twitter Page Technical Watch Facebook Page "As for it being different this time, it is different every time.
