Market Indexes: DJIA, S&P500 cash new all-time highs, ES and NQ futures too!
SPX Candle: Higher High, Higher Low, Higher Close - Trend Candle
FED Posture: Quantitative Tightening (QT)
Since I wrote a lot over the weekend, I'll keep this brief and the let the charts speak for themselves. The market, as measured by the S&P500 Index closed Friday at 2588. At the open, the index dipped two points, then began climbing, eventually making a marginal new high at 2,593 by 15:30 EST. The cash market is seeing some resistance at the highs and from the parallel channel shown below.
|S&P500 Cash Index - Daily - Some Resistance at the Highs|
Both cash and futures prices are potentially trading in a wedge shape, shown above, and, as below.
|ES E-Mini S&P500 Futures - 4 HR - Potential Wedge|
And so, it is possible we are counting a potential contracting diagonal. So far, the trend lines are holding nicely. For a well-formed diagonal, wave (iv) should trade below the blue EMA-34 shown. Of course, wave (iii) must still hold first as a shorter wave than wave (i).
Have a very good start to your night, and to your week!
