Friday 6/5/20. Pattern Trading Setups for the Weekend.

Go to Table.

You can find setups based on a Fibonacci retrace by clicking on the link.

Click the link for a list of symbols from the table.

The following patterns were found manually, so the results may differ from those found using Patternz.

Mr. Bulkowski has excluded any securities he owns from appearing in the list. However, he may add any of the securities listed to his portfolio at any time, just as you can.

There were 20 patterns found this week (excluding pipe bottoms; pipe tops and bottoms are found looking back 2 weeks) out of 587 stocks searched, or 3.4%. Based on the percentage, the stock market is trending since few consolidation patterns appear.

I found 1 pipe bottom chart patterns, which is neutral. High numbers of pipe bottoms can signal a bullish move (I see many of them just before a bear market ends or during a bear market rally. Often it means the first bottom of a double bottom has formed. Thus, expect a move down to the second bottom).

Excluding ETFs, there were 17 bullish chart patterns this week and 2 bearish ones with any remaining (2) being undecided. The ratio of bullish to bearish patterns suggests the market is bullish.

In the table below, the red and green colors are based on the historical breakout direction for the associated chart pattern. If a high and tight flag appears, the start and end dates highlight the flagpole only and not the flag.

Weekly screen for chart patterns ending between 05/28/2020 and 06/04/2020. Many may be still in development. If no securities appear, then I have not identified any new patterns.

Definitions
RS is relative strength (where 1 is best). For other definitions, see the glossary.
’Breakout is upward/downward 100% of the time’ means price breaks out up/down by definition, not by statistically measuring the rate.
All numbers assume a bull market and are based on the breakout direction that occurs most often.
For more information, consult my book, Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns, Second Edition.

Thursday 6/4/20. Intraday Market Direction: Nasdaq

The index climbed by 0.8% or 74.54 points. Since 02/05/1971 the index made 400 similar moves on a percentage basis. After those moves, the next day's...
     Average gain was 0.8% on 264 occasions.
     Average loss was -0.8% on 136 occasions.
Expect the index to close higher 66.0% of the time.
Weekly, since inception on 6/14/2011:
     The prediction of the index closing higher has been right 189/338 or 55.9% of the time.
     The prediction of the index closing lower has been right 56/112 or 50.0% of the time.

Since I post this the night before, check how the futures are trading before market open. Large moves can affect the opening direction.

I show a picture of the Nasdaq composite on the 5-minute scale.

Let's start from the left with a double top. That's DD on the chart. It confirms as a valid chart pattern when the index closes below the horizontal blue line. Judging by its height, it didn't appear to meet the measure rule target (the pattern's height subtracted from the blue line). But it was close

The LHHR pattern is a complex head-and-shoulders bottom. L is the left shoulder, H is a head, and R is the right shoulder. This one met the measure rule target (height added to the top of the pattern) easily enough, within a day or two.

Now we come to the green lines. That's a channel. Price rises bouncing between the two green lines. The index has touched the bottom line. So either it's going to bounce upward off the line or plunge through it. Which way will it be? The above probabilities says there's a 66% chance it'll be upward, so that sounds good to me.

The following table shows where Fibonacci retrace values of the day's high-low range are plus pivot points, calculated on the Nasdaq composite, sorted by value. When several are near each other (small differences), the area might act as support or resistance.

Wednesday 6/3/20. A Look At Indicators

Picture of the chart pattern indicator

This is a picture of the chart pattern indicator on the daily scale. The indicator is the line chart below a chart of the S&P 500 composite.

Not much has changed in the CPI pic since yesterday's post. The CPI is pegged at the top of the scale, 100, pinned there by a move up in the index.

In my study of trendlines, those which rise up at 45 degrees or less tend to last the longest. And this is going up at that rate (but it changes with the aspect ratio of your screen versus mine).

Since the green bar on the far right of the chart, the trend has been steady and the slope is good, too.

Picture of the percent down indicators

The red line is the percentage of stocks at least 20% below their 1-year high (plotted upside down). The blue line is the average percentage drop of stocks below their 1-year high (plotted upside down).

Shown as a red line on the above chart...
On Tuesday, 55% of stocks in my database are in bear market territory (down at least 20% from their 1-year high).
A week ago, it was 62%.
The fewest was 20% on 01/16/2020.
And the most was 96% on 03/23/2020.
Shown as a blue line on the above chart...
The 481 stocks in my database are down an average of 26% from their yearly high.
A week ago, the average was 28%.
The peak was 11% on 01/16/2020.
And the bottom was 47% on 03/23/2020.

Both lines have made progress over the last week.

I don't see anything on this chart or the last which would derail upward progress.

Of course, I'm still expecting covid-19 to surge. We're still seeing that in 15 states. With protests and little social distancing, it'll be a surprise if we didn't see more waves of covid. But I don't know if that'll stop the upward rise in the indices. They may choose to ignore it and continue looking 6 months forward.
