$SPY Techinical Analysis 5/25 – Neutral/Bearish

by catsmeow492

A Quick Note: This is meant to be a purely charting and analytical approach to evaluating market movements. Although I have been very successful in the past predicting movements traders should always make an effort to adjust their positions based on changing political and media landscapes. This approach isn’t meant to be any more accurate than a meteorologist predicting the weather. Take positions at your own risk and always do your own due diligence. I release these for thoughtful criticism from traders who use different approaches for analysis.

Tl;dr: Momentum indicators on longer intervals have almost completely neutralized while leading indicators show weak signals for a potential bearish move. Once again nothing here makes sense other than theta plays. CCS 303/305 5/27. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A PLAY I AM HIGHLY CONFIDENT IN, THIS ONE IS NOT IT.

“China’s securities watchdog on Sunday condemned a U.S. law that could block Chinese firms from U.S. securities exchanges, saying it politicised regulation and would damage both countries.

The U.S. Senate passed legislation on Wednesday that could prevent some Chinese companies from listing their shares on U.S. exchanges unless they follow standards for U.S. audits and regulations.” (finance.yahoo.com/news/china-says-u-law-audits-110804305.html)

Analysis: Momentum is completely neutral on 1W and 1D intervals. DPI and Short interest indicate declining long positions in the market suggesting a possible move down in the near future. Although the market has already moved passed a significant area of resistance and could potentially accumulate a move up to 313 fib levels. Shorter intervals suggest bearish movement early week. The only play that makes sense here once again is one in which time is on your side.
