Sunday Update Week of January 21st – The Markets Hit The Weekly SMA (20) “Wall”

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 take a look at the broad markets after continued moves to the upside, with SPY, QQQ, and XBI all closing at or near the longer-term 20-week simple moving average resistance. As the market has not been phased by the government shutdown, the weekly SMA (20) is the only “wall” the market needs to pay attention to.
