Stock Market Outlook for Tue Jun 21 2022 – Bounce Attempt 2

Stock Market Outlook - Bounce Attempt 2

On Friday the SPX struggled in the morning after a spike higher at the open. By 10:30 the index was back down to another new 52 week low of 3636 before buying managed to push the index higher. The afternoon failed to see a large plunge into the close. Instead the SPX closed up 8 points. This should set the index for a second, stronger attempt to push higher on Tuesday.

Volume was very heavy as Friday was triple witching and new highs were just 2, yet the index held up under selling pressure and slashed the number of new 52 week lows by 50% from Thursday. A move of that size normally indicates a bounce is building.

The NASDAQ rose 152 points on Friday closing at 10,798. Thursday saw a new 52 week low at 10565. Friday didn’t come close to that low, another sign of an impending bounce.

Let’s review Friday’s closing technical indicators to see if Tuesday is set for a bounce.


Stock Market Outlook Chart Comments At The Close on Fri Jun 17 2022 

On Friday the closing candlestick is bearish but also pointing to a high probability of a bounce. The candlestick indicates the index is oversold.

The Upper Bollinger Band is climbing higher and is above the 200 day moving average which is usually bullish in a bear market. The lower Bollinger Band is falling which is bearish but also points to a high probability of a bounce.

Any bounce though has to recover above 4100 if it is to turn into a rally and not just a bounce. That is unlikely, which is why the outlook remains lower after any bounce ends. This also means though that a strong bounce can be used to buy SPY put or ultra bear ETF shares to benefit from the next decline but I plan to wait at least a couple of days to see if the bounce can last longer than a day.

The 200, 100, 50 and 21 day moving averages are all falling lower and the 200 day is leading the market lower. This is bearish. The 21 day is now below 4000 which is bearish. A bounce over the next few days could see the index try to recover to at least 3950.

There are 4 down signals still in place and there have been no up signals since the start of April.

The chart is 85% bearish for Tuesday but a bounce is expected from the market being deeply oversold.

Stock Market Outlook review of Fri Jun 17 2022

 

Stock Market Outlook: Technical Indicators Review:

Momentum: Momentum is rising and negative. It is signaling oversold.

  • Settings: For momentum I use a 10 period when studying market direction.

MACD Histogram: MACD (Moving Averages Convergence / Divergence) issued a down signal on Monday June 13. On Friday the down signal is still quite strong. The MACD histogram is also very negative.

  • Settings: For MACD Histogram, I am using the Fast Points set at 13, Slow Points at 26 and Smoothing at 9. 

Ultimate Oscillator: The Ultimate Oscillator is rising and oversold.

  • Settings: The Ultimate Oscillator settings are: Period 1 is 5, Period 2 is 10, Period 3 is 15, Factor 1 is 4, Factor 2 is 2 and Factor 3 is 1. These are not the default settings but are the settings I use with the S&P 500 chart set for 1 to 3 months.

Slow Stochastic: The Slow Stochastic has an up signal in place and is oversold.

Settings: For the Slow Stochastic I use the K period of 14 and D period of 3. The Slow Stochastic tries to predict the market direction further out than just one day.

Relative Strength Index: The RSI signal is rising and oversold.

  • Settings: The relative strength index is set for a period of 5 which gives it 5 days of market movement to monitor.  It is often the first indicator to show an overbought or oversold signal.

Rate of Change: The rate of change signal is rising.

  • Settings: Rate Of Change is set for a 21 period. This indicator looks back 21 days and compares price action from the past to the present. With the Rate Of Change, prices are rising when signals are positive. Conversely, prices are falling when signals are negative. As an advance rises the Rate Of Change signal should also rise higher, otherwise the rally is suspect. A decline should see the Rate Of Change fall into negative signals. The more negative the signals the stronger the decline.

4200 is light resistance

4150 is light resistance

4100 is light resistance

4050 is light resistance

4025 is light resistance

3975 is light resistance and is a decline of 17.5%

 Stock Market Outlook for Tomorrow – Tue Jun 21 2022 

For Tuesday, the technical indicators are showing strong indications that the market will try for a second bounce from being very oversold. This bounce could last longer than a single day.

On Friday, as outlined, I bought SPY Calls in the Market Direction Portfolio. These are still being held.
