GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – January 19, 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. 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.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – January 5, 2019

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.

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.

Announcement:

Dear Tech Charts members,

We have included a new feature to Tech Charts website. At the bottom of each report we have incorporated comment platform DISQUS. Previous comment platform was not allowing members to post charts and have discussions. With this improvement, I hope to have detailed discussions with our members and possibly post breakout alerts related to each week's report. I also hope that Tech Charts members will be able to interact with each other through the DISQUS platform (at the bottom of each weekly report) to share their knowledge on different instruments available to take advantage of breakout opportunities. I hope we will all benefit from this new feature.

REVIEW


Global equity markets performance as measured by the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O), formed a new trading range between 66.3 and 71.3 levels. Over the past 3 months the ETF has been consolidating in a wide range below its long-term (200-day) average. Breakdown of the wide 3 month-long consolidation can send the ETF towards the next support level at 63. If the ETF manages to hold above the support at 66.3 levels, we can expect further consolidation between 66.3 and 71.2.
