$SPY Breadth and Momentum

Two warnings were issued last week: that market breadth is overbought, and that weekly swing time is ready for reversal. Today's break below support at 2350/2355 confirms the analysis:

The red bar at the bottom shows that momentum turned bearish as well.

$FANG and $SQID Divergence

While the FANGs are advancing in a 5th wave, the SQIDs have stalled in wave three:

Continued weakness in SQIDs will put the FANG's advance in jeopardy.

$SPY Angles and Cycles

Assuming that a daily top is in, the next cycle turn is on April 12th, and the 1 x 1 angle can give us a price target estimate:

For this target to be reached, two things need to happen: momentum will have to remain neutral or turn bearish, and price must remain at or below the 1 x 1 angle.

$SPY Momentum and Trend

While daily momentum and market breadth indicators are showing signs of weakening, weekly trend and momentum have yet to show any signs of reversal:

$SPY Pattern and Trend

Support at 2350 held, and the index is bouncing off oversold market breadth readings:

In addition, the e-mini broke above the 1 x 1 down-sloping angle.

Upside target 2395, support at 2350.
Momentum is neutral, meaning that the risk of whipsaw is high.

$SPY Pattern and Trend

Low VIX and continued complacency in the face of deteriorating market breadth usually leads to a ooooops moment:

Key SPX support at 2350.

$SPY Gap and Trend

As expected, the gap got filled and daily momentum remains neutral. Judging by VIX, the majority is expecting the sideways/up phase to continue:

$SPY Momentum and Trend

While daily momentum turned neutral, weekly momentum remained strong and will turn neutral only on a drop below 2360:

The picture for the NDX is very similar, weekly momentum will turn neutral on a drop below 5300:

Time-wise, both instruments are overextended and due for a pull-back.

The average retracement is 4% for both the SPX and NDX.

$SPY Gap and Trend

On all three prior occasions the gap has either been filled, or at least the high preceding the gap has been tested:

This makes 2371.5 first support level.

$SPY Momentum and Trend

What a difference a speech makes, allowing the major indices to regain positive momentum !
