Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street


The beginning of Q-3 starts Tuesday and with the Fed, BOE and ECB  stating they will stand by the markets, we may presume that the major Wall Street indices will continue North though perhaps after a pause to refresh given velocity the move South and the V move North. Then after some shaking out we see if the Northside continues.

Just because the indices are back at about pre-Brexit marks, that does not mean they broken the highs. They a strong resistance and they have not been able to breakout on several attempts. This round they will get help from central banks.

That does help Wall Street stocks, but not the same game changer that the Fed turning ultra-Dovish might have done or would do.

The BOE has signaled stimulus over the Summer and Mr. Draghi is ready to expand the ECB’s QE, but the US Fed has said publicly what it will do post-Brexit.  The FOMC minutes released this week were very  pre-Brexit.

When you see good patterns moving higher or ready then they are plays, but if and when they are bounces, let them bounce and fade before considering buying.

There are many that look ready to fall, be patient.

The market has rebounded, but it has not made that break above its prior highs, the S&P 500 is about 80 pts away, and do not assume Wall Street has to move further North, it is Summer, aka Dog Days.

DJIA at 7949.37, +0.11% resumes trading Tuesday after the US Holiday Monday and its price action around the resistance band of 18000-300 may turn out to be decisive, Key support is at 17650. The overbought state demands a sideways consolidation or a small correction before it can attempt a sustainable move to the all time highs and breakout.

If playing, play leaders in good patterns that break North, and also look at stocks breaking South. They tell some of the story, also make money and quickly.

Always take what the market gives.


The Bulls Vs The Bears


Sentiment Indicators

VIX: 14.77; -0.86
VXN: 16.83; -0.75
VXO: 13.9; -0.87

Put/Call Ratio (PCR) CBOE: 0.92; -0.31. Only the 2nd session below 1.0 in  14 sessions, down at start of this new Quarter after topping 1.0
even as the market rallied to end June. That makes the rise in puts look like rolling out of positions rather than Southside speculation.
That is a lot of Put action, historically a Bullish indication.

Bulls and Bears: a big drop in Bulls countered by the recovery.

The Bulls are at 41.6 Vs 47.5 last

The Bears are at 23.8 Vs 23.2 last
