Weekend Stock Market Outlook

Stock Market Outlook For The Week of
November 11th = Downtrend


20/50 Day Moving Averages: Downtrend
Price & Volume Action: Uptrend
Objective Elliott Wave Analysis: Mixed


Investors like the results of mid-term elections in the US. No political party in total control usually results in gridlock, which mean businesses focus on business. Investors didn't like the outcome from the Fed meeting as much, with likely rate increase in December and expectations for 3 more in 2019.

With the exception of the Dow Jones Industrials, all the indexes continue to trade below their 20 and 50 day moving averages, so no signal change yet.

2018-11-11- US Stock Market Averages

The price/volume signal confirmed an uptrend last week as the indexes jumped back above their 200 day moving averages. Trading volume wasn't REALLY great and we're still below the 50-day moving averages for the most part. So it appears to be more of a recovery rally after the fierce selling, reminiscent of earlier this year, rather than a new bull market.

OEW called for a probable uptrend, within the overall downtrend. The expectation is for the S&P to sell off a bit to ~2,700, rally higher, then fall again towards 2,400.

The S&P ($SPX) cleared the 200 day moving average, but then ran into resistance around 2800.
