Sunday Update Week of December 17th – Broad Market Analysis

A prepared trader is a generally a profitable trader, and Sunday is a great day to get ready for the week ahead by studying up from last week’s price action.  In this weekend’s analysis, we follow up from the Sunday Analysis last week and look at how the broad market ETFs did. Overall, long-term support that was analyzed last weekend remains in-tact but is holding onto a thread. See what we mean and check out the video analysis for the week ahead!

NLST: Before vs. After

This weekend’s “Before and After” shows NLST trading within a very defined wedge and moving between support and resistance perfectly. In this case, the price moved up sharply to the wedge resistance above and closed as a “Shooting Star” formation which was caught by the TrendSpider “Candlestick Pattern Recognition” feature. Once this bearish candlestick closed, a hard drop in price followed down to the wedge support, forming a bullish hammer candlestick which was also caught in “Pattern Recognition” mode.
