Every week Tech Charts Global Equity Markets report features some of the well-defined, mature classical chart patterns under a lengthy watchlist and the chart pattern breakout signals that took place during that week. Global Equity Markets report covers single stocks from developed, emerging and frontier markets, ETF’s and global equity indices. The report starts with a review section that highlights the important chart developments on global equity benchmarks. This blog post features from the watchlist section a cup & handle continuation chart pattern listed on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange.

The horizontal boundary was tested several times over the course of the chart pattern.

Indecision. Jury is still out. This week's price action is best explained with the help of candlestick patterns definitions. Spinning top is a candlestick with a long upper shadow, long lower shadow, and small real body. One long shadow represents a reversal of sorts; spinning tops represent indecision. The small real body (whether hollow or filled) shows little movement from open to close, and the shadows indicate that both bulls and bears were active during the session. Even though the week opened and closed with little change, prices moved significantly higher and lower in the meantime. Neither buyers nor sellers could gain the upper hand and the result was a standoff. After a long advance or long white candlestick, a spinning top indicates weakness among the bulls and a potential change or interruption in trend. After a long decline (I think this is what we experienced over the past 3 weeks) or long black candlestick, a spinning top indicates weakness among the bears and a potential change or interruption in trend.

Global equity markets are still holding above their long-term support levels. A benchmark that I'm following for Global equity market performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O) rebounded once again from the 200-day (40 week) moving average and the lower boundary of its 2 year-long trend channel. The benchmark for Emerging Markets equities performance, the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Index ETF (EEM) is trading above its long-term average and still far from the lower boundary of its multi-month long uptrend. A breakdown below the lower boundary of the trend channel and the 200-day average at 70.3 levels for the ACWI can result in further weakness. Until we see a breakdown, we will expect the uptrends to resume.

Also the report highlights another similar bearish reversal chart pattern development in U.S. equities.
