Stock Index and Commodity Weekly Market Type Analysis by Sam Eder

Each week I review the current market type and fundamental considerations on a variety of stock and commodity indices. Market type analysis is critical to trade planning.  

MT = Market Type ( See lesson 8 in the Share Investing Course for Smart People)

  • US Dow Jones – MT is sideways normal. Look for range trading opportunities. NFP on Friday should be good for stocks.Prefer bullish trades but carefully.
  • US S&P 500 – MT is sideways normal. Look for range trading opportunities. As above.
  • US Nasdaq – MT is bull normal, but potentially turning sideways. Buy with caution.
  • US Russell 2000 – MT is bull normal. Look to buy.
  • UK 100 – MT is longer-term sideways but potentially breaking out. Trade to the long side with caution.
  • Europe  50 – MT is strong bull. Changing from a fast bull. Look to take small profits.
  • Germany 30 – MT is strong bull. Hold
  • France 40 – MT is strong bull. Hold. 
  • Italy 40 – MT is strong bull. Hold.
  • Spain 35 – MT is strong bull. Breaking out to a new high. Hold.
  • Swiss 20 –  MT is sideways volatile. Had a bullish reversal pattern off resistance. Take profits here, and consider short trades, but be wary.
  • Netherlands 25 – MT is strong bull. Hold.
  • Japan 225 – MT is strong bull. Hold.
  • Honk Kong 33 – MT is normal sideways. Breakout is occurring. Look to buy.
  • Singapore 30 – MT is normal sideways. Getting close to a long breakout. Hold for now.
  • Australia 200 – MT is bull normal. Look for buying opportunities, but careful of the double top that is forming.
  • Gold – MT is sideways normal. Careful longs preferred.
  • Gold vs EURO – MT is bull normal. Look to buy.
  • Silver – MT is sideways normal. Stay out.
  • Silver vs EURO – MT is just a normal bull. Long with caution.
  • Copper – MT is bear volatile. Big pin candle on the weekly chart giving a sell signal in this MT. Continue to look short
  • Brent Oil – MT is bear volatile. Prefer to stay out.
  • WTI Oil – MT is bear normal. Minor double bottom in play. Careful longs are a good play for now. I suspect we will see a new low reached eventually. The negotiations in Iran are potentially bearish for oil, and it looks like OPEC is increasing production – this is countered by decreasing supply from fracking in the US.
  • US 30 year Bonds – MT is turning fast bull. Hold.
  • US 10 year Bonds – MT is sideways volatile. Wait.
  • German 10 year Bonds – MT is strong bull. Hold.
  • UK 10 year Bonds – MT is volatile bull. Prefer careful buying.
