S&P500 (ES) 3 Month Ascending Wedge Nearing End Ahead of FOMC


Bookmark and Share

As seen on Bloomberg, Refinitiv (Thomson Reuters), Factset, Interactive Brokers, Amazon,Liquid (Quoine) and Zerohedge, Tradable Patterns (https://tradablepatterns.com) provides daily technical analysis on a subset of three CME/ICE futures (commodities, equity indices), spot FX markets, which it considers worth monitoring for the day/week for trend reversal or continuation, along with a separate weekly technical analysis newsletter on Bitcoin (BTCUSD), Ethereum (ETHUSD) and Ripple (XRPUSD or XRPJPY). For less experienced traders, tutorials and workshops are offered online and throughout Southeast Asia.

The S&P500 (ES) continued grinding higher this past week and is bumping up against ascending wedge resistance (on the 4hr, daily and weekly chart). The ES will likely consolidate going into Wednesday's US rate announcement and FOMC released at 2pm EST, with traders bracing for volatility soon after. Regardless of the reaction to the FOMC, traders will continue remaining on edge for any developments around the Article 50 extension vote from the EU this Thursday and the ongoing US and China trade deal negotiations. The weekly, daily and 4hr Stochastics are turning increasingly toppish, but currently still offset by the rallying or bottomish weekly, daily and 4hr RSI and MACD. I am looking at entering short in the red zone (of the daily chart), targeting the green zone for Monday. The amber/yellow zone is where I might place a stop if I was a swing trader (although in my personal account with which I seldom hold overnight I sometimes set my stops tighter).
