I'd venture to guess we may have a few sell stops between 1245 and 1250
Yup, that was definitely the real resistance on the way up; this week could shake out a lot of that.
Black Friday below 1200, on the real.
Forget the technical mumbo jumbo, it's actually setting up for a rally this week. All the news reports are saying just how awful this week's data will be. It's the typical setting the bar low crap. Get ready for a lot of "beat expectations" celebrating. It also comes down to whether the Bernank wants stock or bond prices to go up. Ben probably thinks bond prices have risen enough (and Bill Gross has been properly chastised). This week, it's time to let a bit of air out of the bond market, and bubble up stocks.
All technicals are a resolved by those interns pressing the ass button on the holy keypad
Agreed sure u wanna be short for the last 20 handles after 7 out of 8 sessions down and Bam Bam wanting to sprinkle fairy dust on shovel ready projects and such....
Wow, this is terrific. This changed my attitude toward what to expect in the morning.
Is there anyway you can do more of these? This was one of the best presentations I've heard in a long time. People crap all over GS all the time (I do to), but when it comes to this kind of analysis, no one holds a candle to them. This was terrific, and if I were paying mega-$$$ to GS for updates, I would feel with this one that I got my money's worth.
+1. One of the best cross market analysis from GS in a very long time. Excellent interpretation of technicals without getting too complex thus unmanageable.
Fuck you both. Squid lovers. The only good squid is a dead squid, char broiled and dipped in wasabi.
Deep fried in vegetable oil with Sambala Oelek and Garlic should get the taste buds cranking. Analysis of this standard deserves recognition regardless of its source. Full cred goes to John Noyce, its a shame he's reping GS though.
The next time I see a h&s top work will be the first.
I agree completely.
Not to mention the one they point out in this report isn't even a textbook one because the right shoulder is higher. Maybe in that case, it will work.
But you're right, for the past two years, every head and shoulders has wound up a bullish pattern.
I know. I don't get it, either.
This pattern in no way resembles a head and shoulders pattern and I am about yay tired of people pulling out and stretching the patterns so far askew that it doesn't even make sense.
For what it's worth, this is not a head and shoulders pattern. This is:
The two shoulders should be nearly identical in breadth and length, as well as the same "height" from the base.
H&S topping completition: EUR/USD stop-hunt move back to post 1.46 area. Check 4hr chart or 30 min for further clarity. Patterns dont mean shit unless you're paying close attention to underlying market forces.
Not going to happen. EURUSD will move to 1.37 within three weeks.
Think you've missed the point. The move back up to post 1.46 WAS the stop-hunt. Check and see how it completed. A picture perfect H&S pattern.
Oh, ok. Gotcha.
Yeppers, it was pretty close to picture-perfect, alright.
Yes. Now, that is a head and shoulders. What the SPX is doing now is far, far too skewed to be any pattern at all. Looks to be running into a tough slog over the next few days, however, mired in support. If it blows through 1250 with any force...
Well, who knows, eh?
Best of luck trading!
Its not skewed at all. A few hints as to why this pattern should be given validity. It completed the H&S pattern on 23 May when it broke bellow its previous low (call it right shoulder if you may). As the markets are driven by the big boys pay close attention to what followed. A stop-hunt back up to the top of its previous high which is where a fair chunk of stops (buy orders) were swallowed. The proceeding force of the down-move confirms the stop-hunt as the pros dont like to hang around these levels for too long, being liquidity providers also ;)
Best of luck with your trading and keep an eye out for these off-moves as they provide the best risk-reward opportunities.
News flow on this weekend's news is utterly horrific. Pawlenty talking about how the Obama economy is a "disaster" and that his economic plan was a "total failure".
Odds are high we get a washout early in the week then a bounce to close green on the week, maybe even a rally back up to the 50-day.
But the overall trend is now down unless the PPT pulls a miracle and announces a huge tax cut or something.
Can't wait to hear Pawlenty's "Plan".
LOL. Much "spitting into the wind" by all "MSM favored" candidates between now and Nov. 2012.
Looking for this too. Transports don't look like they found a S/T bottom but, like you infer, that could come anytime with a V rather than a U bottom.
T-PAW? Boring. Take your 5% nonsense T-PAW and shove it. I want details not fox tails.
I'm convinced that robo is actually one of the Tylers. Bravo on creating the super troll.
Fifty percent chance any forcast is right, 100% chance that what happens will be interpreted as having been forecast. Just reading enterails. Markets totally manipulated and TA meaningless.
"Markets totally manipulated and TA meaningless."
Everything is meaningless
in this market.
Madoff was predicting a

He was just a few years off.
This analysis aint worth shit. The FED is going to get everyone leaning one way - like they've done in the past - everyone will think that this is the big meltdown and then they'll run the futures and push the rod right up the arse of the shorts - this goes on and on and on. Eventually it will break the balls of the shorts and they'll all lean long and then the FED will sell into the strength. You can't beat these fucks. They've got to much capital.
Re EURUSD: nowhere in the annals of Elliott wave analysis/Fibonacci-ratio application is there any reference to 76.4% as a valid retracement level.
Re S&P Index: purported "head and shoulders" pattern is not above the February high. If a top reversal pattern is forming here, then one must consider all of the price work since the February top.
GS pays this guy? For this kind of analysis?
Seventy-six point four seems to be Goldman's "proprietary" Fibonacci level. Everyone uses it at Goldman because I have seen it in all their charts. I first noticed it about two years ago and it does seem to work.
I like to use it in a combination of 76.4% and the standard 78.6% retracement levels. This "double-buffer" area is a really strong range of resistance and/or support.
Try it on your charts. You'll see what I mean.
The GBPCHF pair is making a long-term bullish Gartley pattern on the Weekly chart, as the USDCHF pair did last week. Wait for an inside bar on the Daily before getting long.
It seems that the Swissie is due to give some back...maybe a lot.
Why do I get the strange sensation that some relationship between Noyce and Wiki is going to give me rectal bleeding???? Thanks anyway, I'm one of the few who has endurance to read beyond a fucking 3 sentence post before watching fat chicks dance on TV. Thanks though
