ES #F Still Demand and mixed signals
The daily chart of the S&P 500 mini futures contract above shows our proprietary SUPPLY and DEMAND Dashboard and BXB (Bar by Bar) Signals using data from the NYSE.
The ES rallied for the 4th consecutive session and gained 9.25-points Yesterday. Demand dominated 8 of the last 9 sessions. It looks if the upward movement is fading. The Supply/Demand algorithm is still Bullish, but the daily signals are Bearish and Average Volatility reached a climax. On the 8th the lowest (that we have seen ever) average Volatility of 22% were measured. Yesterday it came in at 32%. Bearish daily signals and a very low Volatility (when it reaches a climax), normally result in a pullback or reversal to the down side within a day or two. The Comparative strength tool is also at the “blue line”, and can lead to weakness, when crossing the line downwards.
Resistance to the upside is identified at 2603.00, 2625.00 and 2676.00.
We expect the market to make a pullback Today. It is difficult to say how deep the down move might be. Should the market trade downwards, our support zones are at 2546.00, 2529.00, 2487.50, 2456.00 and 2431.00. An unfilled gap exists to the downside in the 2478.75 to 2448.25 area, created on the 4th. (See chart below).
On the Faang (FB, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google) Index chart below, the Faang Index looks weaker than the ES. It had a lower high and weaker close Yesterday. The Faang normally lead the ES.
End of the day Signals January the 9th:
S & D Dashboard Algorithm Bullish, but the Daily Signals turned Bearish
Average Supply / Demand Volatility reached a climax for 2 days in a row
These readings are an independent assessment of the one and only measureable fundamental market mover: SUPPLY and DEMAND. It does not matter if price is influenced by a geopolitical event, seasonality, fundamental economic data releases or sentiment driven news, etc. It all reflects in Supply and Demand, the “footprints” of the “Big Boys” or “Smart Money”.
Comparative strength is weakening, keep an eye on Volatility. If Supply shows up and Volatility Increases Today, a move down is on the cards.
