Sharp Reversal Market Update and Stock Scan May 6
Fri, May 6, 3:11 PM ET, by Corey Rosenbloom
In the membership we were calling for a high-probability reversal away from the 2,045 level.
After one more dip beneath this level, we’re likely finally seeing the beginning of our intraday trend reversal.
Let’s update our levels for the S&P 500 Index and note the big trending stocks today:
Multiple Positive Momentum and TICK (with Breadth) Divergences built up at the 2,045/2,040 index level, all of which suggested a likely reversal of the short-term (5-min intraday) downtrend.
Price surprised us with one more nip under 2,045 ahead of a strong intraday reversal – exactly as expected.
The S&P 500 index achieved its first upside target – the 38.2% swing retracement and prior high shy of 2,060.
We’ll focus on this level through the remainder of the session and into Monday.
