Global Stock Indices/ETFs to watch on Friday by Mary McNamara

There are a few global stock indices and ETFs threatening to break up through major resistance levels this month to trigger bullish breakout moves. These are worth watching after Friday’s close to see whether they can initiate such a move.

The S&P500, DJIA, Germany’s DAX and India’s SENSEX indices have already broken up through their pre-GFC highs to tigger bullish ascending triangle breakouts BUT watch for the NASDAQ, London’s FTSE and Canada’s TSX to follow suit and for the Russell 2000 to continue on from a ‘Bull Flag’ breakout.

S&P500: this index made a bullish ascending triangle breakout back in 2013 and looks to be on its way to a target of 2,500:

There are a few global stock indices, along with their ETFs, looking to attempt their own bullish ascending triangle breakouts this month:
