Sunday Update for Week of 10/8 – A Recap After A Rough Week

A prepared trader is a profitable trader, and Sunday is a great day to get ready for the week ahead by studying up from last week’s price action. This weekend, we are focusing on the absolute bloodbath that occurred in the broad markets and will recap how last weekend’s charts performed. This analysis proves looking at multiple time frames is crucial as the daily and weekly candles were showing two separate things. The longer-term, bearish set up ended up winning over last week.

NEW FEATURE ALERT: Be sure to check our brand new “sensitivity” feature this week that allows to you increase or decrease the width of your alert to allow for some margin of error in case the price only misses by a few cents. See what we mean by checking out the blog post below.

This Week’s Analysis (October 5th Close)

  1.  The SPY initially bounced up on Monday which fulfilled the oversold conditions but then broke down through the support trendline.
  2.  The price pierced the EMA (50) and then bounced to close above it.
  3.  The daily Williams %R found resistance at the weekly Williams %R (dotted line).
  4. The daily RSI started to break down through the weekly RSI but is now very oversold with the %R which may point to at least a dead cat bounce next week.

This Week’s Analysis (October 5th Close)

  • The price dropped down to test the SMA (20) support below as volume increased significantly over the prior week. If the SMA (20) breaks, watch for a further pullback to the price channel support below which coincides almost perfectly with the EMA (50).
