The Closing Print live trading and financial blog during market hours.

Headline news is driving the markets, with the financial media focused on China U.S. talks and tariffs. That leaves traders and investors in a quandary, as negotiations seem to be stalling. To exacerbate matters, the summer vacation season is quickly approaching. Many will choose to go flat and take the summer off, spend time with family, or take a much-needed respite.

NYHL – Stock Market Direction

The number of new highs remains persistent. The histogram is above zero, with Monday price action testing the ascending trendline and support zone. All of this is happening as breadth moderates. NYMO and NAMO cycles continue lower as stocks take a breather.

NYAD is still making new highs, though Monday did see declining stocks outpace advancing stocks. A break of the trend line would signal a change in character that we need to monitor. We’ll do just that during the LIVE broadcast this week.

Remember, the S&P 1500 is still on a buy signal, so we are looking for a major change before considering selling longer term positions. We talked about in the Monday Post.

Futures are lower, so we will take a neutral posture today. If an opportunity presents itself, consider day trades for now. Caution is warranted.

BITCOIN is testing the 6000 resistance zone this morning.

Join us today in the trading room for our LIVESTREAM broadcast during market hours, as we trade the watchlist and other new positions. Watch, listen and trade from 9:20 AM to 4:15 PM Monday through Friday.
