E SPX, Gold, And G6 Mid-Week Target Update

In this mid-week update, we’ll focus on the instruments which already hit their weekly targets. As mentioned before,  you can follow the weekly targets and updates here live 24/7. You can also use the TradingView platform to send messages or set alerts.

The weekend target forecast for the SPX focused on two things: that the bullish reaction to the G20 will propel the SPX to 2800, and that any upside from there will be limited due to overbought market breadth. Both events came to pass. Furthermore, on Tuesday we updated our hourly chart and noted that a drop below 2767 will result in a retest of the Monday rally:

As a side note, if you follow the investment industry you are probably aware that the focus is on hiring quants. What they do is a mystery, but in the end, they all follow the same models and strategies and, since herd mentality is alive and well in quant world, they all tend to buy and sell at the same time. As it turns out, one of their super quant formulas is centered on crossing the 200-day moving average, which in geek speak translates to “deleveraging massive notional in long US Equities expressions across SPX, RTY, and NDX live.” With that in mind, there’s no reason why anybody with a modicum of technical analysis experience can’t run circles around them.

Gold tested the upside weekly target several times on Monday and Tuesday and currently trades above it. This changed the weekly signal to Buy. The new upside target is 1252:

USD/JPY broke below the bullish target angle and dropped to the weekly downside target, which currently acts as support. Looking at the longer-term chart, USD/JPY is consolidating between 111.5 and 114.5 with good swing trading opportunities in between:
