S&P 500 (SPX) Moves Down For the 3rd Day In A Row; in an Uptrend Over Past 14 Days

The Hourly View for SPX

Last Updated October 16, 2020, 00:05 GMT

Currently, SPX’s price is up $8 (0.23%) from the hour prior. SPX has seen its price go up 8 out of the past 10 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bulls. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 50 hour moving average has been crossed, so that price is now turning above it. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

    There was a time when the S&P 500 refused to close a single trading day below its 10 day simple moving average for months. Today reminds me of the magic that’s possible at the 10 day sma. (Magic isn’t real but it does a damn good job convincing us it is) $spx

  • From kdspaul:

    @dijkstracula They both track s&p500. They might weight things differently internally but their target is to match the performance of s&p 500 index (which you can’t directly invest in)
    Another point to note would to be look at $spx options which is a cboe product and preferred for tax reasons

It is during that millisecond that I see her yellow eyes that I am taken back to another place, another time….On the virus itself, cases of new infection suddenly have hit levels not seen since last spring, in some cases, even topping the numbers of those awful, dark days….Morning light is still a few hours off, the opening bell even further….The rest is up to Nancy, Steven and Mitch….However, if no rating change occurs, the data on this page does not update….The data does update after 90 days if no rating change occurs within that time period.
