We Got The SPX Wrong? Chart Signals Still Bearish (UK)

OANDA:SPX500USD   S&P 500 Index
You could say we got the S&P 500 (SPX) charts completely wrong, or you could say we saw this one coming, that is completely up to you, you can check our previous analysis here:
In the analysis above, you can see that we mention the price moving to the all-time high before dropping as a potential scenario but the less likely one, this one is now the true scenario.

Just like it happens with cryptocurrency, the market moved differently to what most analysts expected, but what will happen next?

The charts and signals are still quite bearish for the S&P 500 (SPX) . So yes, it is moving up slowly but a drop will be coming sooner rather than later... Let's take a look at these signals together now, while you hit the like button (thumbs up)... Thanks a lot for the continued support.

S&P 500 Chart Analysis by Alan Masters

  • The first signal we are looking at is a double top . We can see that the SPX hit all-time high 2942 on the week of the 17th September 2018, I shared a chart right after that. You can see it here:
  • Trading volume is at its lowest in years. You would expect volume increasing on the way up, but that is not true. Trading volume is really low, this supports an upcoming drop.

  • The MACD is showing clear bearish divergence which is only growing stronger by the week, see it here:
  • The RSI is also on the same situation. Moving up but with bearish divergence growing.

  • The chart pattern drawn in purple is a classic Rising Wedge , this pattern is bearish in nature and can lead to a breakdown.

These are the main signals coming from the chart. Even though we have the SPX slowly increasing in price, the signals are developing to the bearish side, this is an indication that this index can easily drop.

Conditions for change: The SPX is near its all-time high, so it should be very easy to track here. If the all-time high is broken and volume grows, then you can expect this bullish trend to continue. But if the SPX remains below ATH , then the possibilities of an upcoming drop increases dramatically.

Trump is a very good business man which is why we are seeing this recent strength...but he can’t run a country. This all points to disaster.

Dude, we are going into all-times high and you're claiming the charts are bearish? IF anything the SPX is consolidating & building a higher base for an even big bullish run going forward. This is all European & Asian money coming into the US Share market.
@Dimolad, Thanks a lot for sharing, appreciated.

I mentioned the signals that support my bias.

I understand yours and appreciate the input and I understand how it can affect the market positively, but the signals that I mention are still there and I believe they will come into play sooner rather than later now.

@alanmasters, I agree that the uptrend in running out od energy and there will be an opportunity to short in the next few weeks but this will be a correction rather than a change in trend. US Share marker is in a strong bull market when focussing on the higher time frames. There is just nowhere else to park big money.
