S&P: back to the future
Information is not investment advice
On May 14, we have suggested the following scenario for the S&P. It was clear at that time that the question was whether the index would cross the lower border of the movement channel straight away or would bounce back upwards for a smaller bullish wave.
Scenario 1: crossing the lower border of the trend downwards in Point A.
Scenario 2; part 1: rising to Point C.
Scenario 2; part 2: bouncing downwards to Point B to go further down or reverse upwards.
Eventually, we are witnessing that the stock market turns to be more light-spirited as the bullish trend that has formed was not a smaller one but big enough to break through the resistance of the upper border of the movement channel. Now, peaking at 2,940, the index is at the upper border of the channel market by the support of 2,775 and the resistance of 2,965.
Scenario 2; part 1: S&P rose to Point C' which corresponds to Point C in the previous projection.
Scenario 2; part 2: dropping to Point B' for a bullish reversal or a bearish continuation.
That proves, first, that the market is not that bearish as it could be, despite all gloomy prophecies and hard data that are out there and are really heavy. Second, taking that “heroism” (or, if you like, inadequacy) of the S&P in the current circumstances, it would be erroneous to expect too much enthusiasm of it. That’s why it appears to us that most probably the next move will be bearish: the index will go down for a temporary retreat from the onslaught it has been in lately. The question is, whether the low which will be reached will be the last station before moving up to break the resistance of the channel at 2,965. The fundamentals will show us – and that we will see at the end of this week.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
