  • USD/JPY has fallen to its lowest level in almost a month
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the exchange rate while below 109.00

  • Our near-term trend bias remains lower in the metal while below 1247
  • Interim support is eyed at 1206, but a move under 1179 is really needed to set off a more important decline

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

Price & Time: Do or Die Levels For Risk?

Do or die level for “risk” as the cash S&P 500 closed right on its 200-day moving average on Friday. The break in the index under a key Gann level at 1932 last week looks important and warns the market has entered a venerable corrective phase. That said the 200-day moving average hasn’t been tested in almost two years so a bounce at least is to be expected. This immediate positive view is bolstered by contrarian sentiment readings which saw the DSI (Daily Sentiment Index) in the SPX and NDX reach extremes not seen in years on Friday with both falling to just 5% bulls. In many ways we are more interested in what the index does after the bounce (assuming there is one) as if the market fails to gain much momentum the disappointment to rally from such a widely anticipated level could easily prompt a bon a fide liquidation phase and a quick move down to the low 1800s. A move back over 1932 is needed to stabilize things, but the index probably needs to recapture the 50-day moving average way up around 1975 to trigger a more serious FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) end of year rally push.
