Stock Market Outlook for Mon Nov 27 2023
For the start of the final week of November there are still signs that the bulls will move stocks higher but there are further warnings signs. The Lower Bollinger Band is rising which at present is bullish but if the Upper Bollinger Band starts to turn sideways and then lower, we need to watch the Moving Average Convergence / Divergence (MACD) indicator. If it falls in strength then there is a good chance for a dip in the rally perhaps as much as 3% to 5% to occur over the next week or two. Meanwhile for Monday the technical indicators are showing a higher close is still expected which means dips are opportunities to place further trades.
