GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – March 2, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF remains above its long-term 200-day moving average. The ETF is now testing a minor resistance level at 71.3. The rebound from January lows has been strong and without any correction. A possible correction can result in a pullback to test the 200-day moving average at 69.8 levels. With the price remaining above the long-term average, the technical outlook has turned positive.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – February 16, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF had another strong week pushing the ETF above its 200-day (40-week) moving average. Back to back weekly gains followed the V-bottom reversal from the support level at 63. I think we are likely to see some sort of consolidation around the long-term average. Given the uninterrupted advance from January lows, a short-term pullback can possibly form the right shoulder of a H&S bottom formation. Please note it is still early to call for such development. I want to highlight this possibility as many other benchmarks are forming similar structures. For a good example of a consolidation around the long-term average, you can check the H&S bottom formation in 2016.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – February 9, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O), found resistance at the 200-day moving average. After a sharp rebound from the support area (63 levels), the long-term 200-day moving average was the first important resistance the ETF faced. During any consolidation around the 200-day average or during a pullback, I will be looking for a bullish continuation chart pattern development. For bullish interpretation and a reversal of the downtrend, I would like to see the ETF stabilizing above its long-term average. A good example is the first half of 2016...

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – January 26, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for Global equity markets performance, iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O) had a strong rebound from the support level at 63 levels. V-reversal pushed the ETF towards its long-term moving average at 69.7 levels. In the last quarter of 2018, the ETF broke down its 7 month-long consolidation and started a corrective period. Over the past 5 weeks the ETF had back to back gains that recovered most of December 2018 losses without any pullback. Latest rebound might be due for a short pullback. I will be looking for bullish chart pattern developments to find low risk entry points.

Friday's price action was a gap opening. Below I analyze two gap openings on the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) and the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O).

REVIEW


The iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF, a measure of Global equity markets performance, had a sharp rebound from the support level at 63. V-bottom reversals are difficult to analyze and trade. If we have seen a V bottom and the ETF keeps climbing higher in the following weeks, I will wait for the price to stabilize around the long-term average. During any pullback I will monitor this ETF for short/medium-term bullish continuation chart pattern developments. Long-term 200-day moving average stands at 69.7 levels.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – January 12, 2019

REVIEW


The iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF, a measure of Global equity markets performance, had a sharp rebound from the support level at 63. Back to back weekly gains pushed the index towards the resistance area between 66.3 and 70. Is the recent rebound part of a bottoming process or a counter-trend rally in a downtrend? The answer lies in the following week's price action. V-bottom reversals are difficult to analyze and trade. If we have seen a V bottom and the ETF keeps climbing higher in the following weeks, I will wait for the price to stabilize above the long-term average. If there is a re-test of previous lows in an attempt to form a double bottom, then I will monitor the ETF for a long opportunity. The other possibility is that we see a short-term consolidation before moving higher. That again will alert me to look for bullish setups.

REVIEW


The iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O) had another strong weekly close thanks to the Friday's price action. I'm analyzing the latest strength as a rebound in a downtrend. 63 levels remains as the strong support level. Previous support that was breached on the downside will act as resistance at 66.3 levels.

REVIEW


Global equity markets performance as measured by the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O) rebounded from oversold levels. In the time frame I analyze price charts (daily, weekly and monthly) from a classical charting perspective there is no clear sign of reversal. V bottoms can take place and they are usually difficult to anticipate and analyze. My best guess is that we see some sort of consolidation after December's sharp sell-off. The consolidation can result in a re-test of previous lows. We will be able to tell as we get new evidence (data points) from the markets. For now I can say that the ACWI ETF (ACWI.O) stabilized around the support at 63 levels. Strong resistance stands at 66.3 levels. The ETF is trading below its long-term average and is in a steady downtrend.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – December 22, 2018

REVIEW


Global equity markets performance as measured by the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O) broke down the 3 month-long sideways consolidation by breaching the support at 66.3 levels. Breakdown was followed by a sharp drop towards the next support level at 63 levels. Nothing good happens below the 200-day moving average. Back in October the long-term trend following indicator alerted us to the change in trend. Previous support becomes the new resistance. 66.3 levels will act as short-term resistance if markets experience any rebound. In the short-term, there is no chart pattern that would signal a trend reversal.
