Market Timing Brief for the SP500 Index Close on 5-02-2014: Second Right Shoulder Failure

A Market Timing Report based on the 5-02-2014 Close, published Sunday May 4, 2014

The SP500 Index (SPX, SPY) continues to be an amusement ride and it’s in dire need of an orthopod for that shoulder problem. When the market trades around a key resistance level as it did Friday and closes below it, you have to pay attention.  One benefit of technical analysis is to get into a market at better times.  Now is clearly not the time to buy the SP500 Index as we just failed at a resistance level.  We can also escape the big downdrafts.  Several support levels are shown in the chart:

A close above the green line would obviously allow for a re-topping of the SP500 Index and even a rise to the upper yellow long term channel line (numbers given in this month’s free issue – see link below).
