TSX Composite Index – The Week Ahead Investing Strategy Notes and Trade Ideas For The 3rd Week Of Mar 2016

Last week the TSX Composite Index opened at 13,235.25 on Monday March 7. That was a big up day for the TSX Composite Index.

The following day, March 8 the index was weak and closed lower at 13,311.05 and the closing candlestick on Tuesday indicated the market was extremely overbought which, considering that the TSX Composite Index had moved higher for 8 days in a row, was to be expected.

The outlook remained positive despite the overbought condition and Wednesday was another up day for the TSX Composite Index.

Again on Thursday, March 10 the index closed higher but volatility continued to plague the TSX Composite Index and you can see in the TSX Composite Index Chart below that the market had another bearish candlestick develop on Thursday at the close.

Despite this, technical indicators were enough that the TSX continued its advance with a big push on Friday which closed the TSX Composite Index at 13,522.
