Market Timing Brief for the SP500 Index Close on 1-17-2014: Failed Breakout

A Market Timing Report based on the 1-17-2014 Close published Monday January 20th, 2014

The SP500 Index (SPX, SPY) has not broken down yet, but it did fail at a double top at the end of the week.  If 1823.73 holds it on the pullback (1-06 low), we’ll have a reverse head and shoulders set-up for a further rally. 

Another logical place for a pullback would be 1815.52, the 1-13-2014 low.  By the time it reaches that point, we’ll also be flirting with the 50 day moving average, which COULD provide support.   There ARE buyers left in this market still as evidenced by Intel’s (INTC) action this past week.  It could have easily fallen to it’s 50 day moving average but did not after a very soft forecast for the coming year.  It fell and then bounced.

I thank Worden Brothers for the chart system I use to post these charts.  If you want to know more about the charting system I use every day, go to my “Other Resources” page here:  Other Resources   It makes it much easier to follow along with me if you can see the charts and manipulate them on your own computer, so it’s a great investment to have an excellent charting system.

Look for updates on the main chart tracking pages this week as I feel they are needed and comments via Twitter.
