Tuesday Technicals – 27 September 2016

542496 62119f03ca7a4dde8ef430df5e12d726~mv2 d 1593 1446 s 2542496 8035a5ecb68e4c8bbb8a0574ce2e85cf~mv2

2.Natural Gas- Breakout
-Head and shoulders bottom playing through on the weekly chart, price has just broken through the neckline.
-The $3 mark remains important with the failed 2009 breach to the downside, and 2012 bottom confirmed around the $3 point; in this case it is the neckline for the H&S pattern.
-Medium term price target is $4 (simple head and shoulders measure rule, and that’s where resistance is).
Overall technical view: Bullish medium term

3.Gold- Bull flag
-Bull flag continuing to play out on the weekly chart.
-Typically a continuation pattern, the measure rule says price target for an upside breakout would be above $1400
-Still dependent on an upside breakout; it will not be a “bull flag” unless and until it breaks to the upside, but if it does it will move above $1400 in short order and from that point the gold bull market will become the main narrative.
Overall technical view: Bullish bias, but wait for the breakout

4.US Small Caps- Closing in on resistance
-The Russell 2000 small cap index put in a major inverse head and shoulders pattern through 2015/16, which would suggest a mechanical price target north of 1400.
-It has managed to stay above the 50 day moving average despite a few dips in what has otherwise been a solid stretch of absolute and relative performance.
-On the relative performance (against the S&P500) aspect it seems to be in the process of breaking up through the line in the sand of the past few years which will support its run against resistance of 1275; a break of which will lift conviction.
Overall technical view: Bullish, gain further conviction on a break of 1275

5.Financials- Head and Shoulders Top
-Financials ETF just put in a head and shoulders top with the intraday break of the neckline; price target of H&S is a move back towards the lows of $18
-Second strike is that the gap down today also marks a downside break of the 50 day moving average.
-Third strike is the poor relative performance, with the ratio vs the S&P500 dropping below the point where major weakness erupted in June.
Overall technical view: Bearish short term
