Mid-Week Market Update
The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) has a Neutral + Chaikin Power Gauge ETF Rating and is now slightly underperforming the IWV (Russell 3000 ETF). The OB / OS Indicator is moving higher from an oversold position while Chaikin Money Flow has turned bearish. SPY remains below the declining long-term trend line which has acted as resistance to a rally attempt once again. The Power Bar Ratio is bearish.
Trading in the fund remains choppy as little progress has been made since April 14th. A break of $293 – $300 opens the door to a move to $311. Should that level be broken to the upside, investors have to be open to the idea of the market retesting the highs. On the downside, a break of last week’s low near $280 would set the stage for a move to the $257 – $265 range.
The Invesco QQQ ETF (QQQ) has a Bullish Power Gauge ETF Rating and is leading the SPY, with the intensity of outperformance increasing of late. The OB / OS Indicator is nearing an overbought level and Chaikin Money Flow is bullish. Resistance is in the area between $230 and $235 while support is in the area between $205 and $215. The QQQ remains the strongest of the main market ETFs as large cap growth has been a key driver to the rally. It is interesting to note that the fund faded from the level that marked a gap lower in February that started the market’s swoon.
