These days it is fashionable for analysts to say they base their analysis on fundamentals and not on charts.
But the chart is at such a critical juncture that even such analysts may want to take a look at it.
Please click here for an annotated chart of the S&P 500 ETF SPY, which is based on the benchmark S&P 500 Index SPX. Please note the following from the chart:
• The market is right up against the resistance, as shown on the chart.
• The volume is low. Based on traditional technical analysis, this is negative.
• In recent years, I have repeatedly noted that when the volume is low on an approach to the resistance, significant volume often comes in after the breakout. The reason is that after the breakout, the momo crowd becomes aggressive. Based on this observation, these days the traditional technical analysis should not be strictly applied.
• The chart shows that there is a potential “double top” if the market turns down from here. A double top is considered a negative pattern.
• The chart shows that when the market was at this level last time, the relative strength index (RSI) was overbought.
• The chart shows that, this time, RSI can go either way.
• The pattern looks different for the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, Nasdaq 100 ETF QQQ, and small-cap ETF IWM.
