S&P500: Trendline Watch

While the SPX is rangebound in the doldrums, here's the 15-year SPX chart once again. Good news for the bulls: the current consolidation is occuring just after a break above the downtrendline joining the Oct07-May10 tops. Good news for the bears: The decade old parallel channel line resistance(red line) is just above around 1210, followed by 1220 horizontal resistance.

With the weekly RSI overbought & dollar finding support as well, it would probably be prudent for bulls to take profits at this point, and wait for a positive break above 1220, before initiating fresh positions.

All the best!

Shanghai Composite: Another breakout

Since the breakout above 2700, SSEC has rapidly climbed up to the upper downtrendline. In the past few sessions, there has been yet another breakout - this time above the downtrendline. Take a look at the weekly chart below. Next target is the wave A high of around 3480. However, with the weekly RSI reaching overbought, i'd await confirmation - some form of consolidation around the 3100 level + a successful retest of the line from above - before adding new positions. Horizontal support around 2900.

All the best!
