Big Crosscurrents Emerge as Buyers Go for the Bounce – May 14, 2019

MARKET COMMENTARY

Whipsaws on wider timeframes make the market volatile from a swing perspective. Remember, crosscurrents mean that markets will reverse on its edges before resuming any trend. Trade war chatter continues and will likely be protracted but as @Hedgeeye yesterday said, trade war movement is DEFLATIONARY from all the past data. And that does make me think a bit more about the big picture and the charts’ inability to breakout further. Be cautious and allow charts to hold steady before engaging. Below 2844, sellers are still in charge. Support bounces are important to hold near 2800.5. The edges of weekly importance near 2807 and 2791.5 keep me on alert for the next weekly test zone of support, with a look at 2778 also now on the horizon.

RECAP -Sellers stronger below 2844.75. Buyers want to hold recapture 2836.5 as the weekly candle closes become important again. Breaches below 2800 is likely to create a bit of a battle with failure sending us into the lower level of 2778 noted above

Divergent action still sits below the movement of price on both sides of the trades – long and short – but traders are still looking at deep support edges to bounces.
