  • A close above 121.00 would turn us positive on USD/JPY

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

Price & Time: Buy the Dip or Sell The Rip?

The high in the S&P 500 last week had some nice cyclical symmetry. There were 2757 days between the 2000 and 2007 highs in the index and last week’s high occurred on day 2755 from the 2007 high (close enough for government and cycle work). Just how important this turn proves to be is still up in the air, but Monday’s successful back test keeps the door open to a deeper correction. The 50-day moving average near 2090 and last week’s low around 2076 are clear near-term pivots, but the truly important area of support looks to be between 2030/40 as this zone marks a nice convergence of the recent range lows and the 200-day moving average. Weakness below there would suggest a much more important correction is unfolding. Strength through 2126 is needed to invalidate the negative cycle at work and re-focus attention higher in the index.
