Market Timing Commentary as of Friday, April 24, 2009

Market Timing Commentary as of Friday, April 24, 2009SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
Fari Hamzei

As we mentioned in our Saturday Webinar, we think this week the key chart is NASDAQ-100 (NDX). With the 200 day Moving Average at 1399, a test of 1400 psychological level is a given.

The McClellan Oscillators for NYSE and NAZZ began heading up again on Thursday and Friday with readings of 167 and 86, respectively. Given the intensity of the advance we have had from March 9th lows, we should NOT categorize these readings as overbought. Since the index levels are just above +1 sigma, we expect a tad higher readings this week on both these Indices and Indicators before a pullback.

Notice CIs are lit RED and in case of NDX, it still has an upward slope.

What is more important is the Bearish Divergence we continue to see in Prices vs McClellan Oscillators. Somewhere in here, the prices will give in. Brace yourself with a of tad of ETF puts a low cost insurance. Also worth noting is a slight upward bias in volume at both exchanges.

Vols are continue to get washed out of our system. That is a good sign. Again, we will go into full alert if we see a -3 or -4 sigma reading for VXO and/or VXN (see chart below).

We remain midly bullish for a few more days but one must be very alert here.
