Keystone's two key ST market signals are the 8/34 MA cross on the 30-minute (see previous chart) and the 200 EMA cross on the 60-minute. The SPX failed the 200 EMA at 1966.14 this morning ushering in bearish markets for the hours and days ahead, however, the bulls fight back and now are maintaining price above the 200 EMA signaling bullish markets for the hours and days ahead. Market bulls must send price strongly higher immediately or they are in for some significant pain ahead for days and weeks under 1966.14. Price is perched exactly at the 1966.14. Bounce or die.
Bulls are okay and equities will recover going forward as long as SPX price stays above 1966.14. Market mayhem will begin in earnest if the SPX drops under 1966.14. The indicators hint that even though a recovery bounce should occur, lower lows in price are desired afterwards so the stochastics and MACD line can set up with positive divergence. The Fed statment is only one-half hour away so it is folly to make too much of a guess on direction. Whatever the Fed says is going to send markets wildly one way or the other. Watch the 200 EMA cross at 1966.14 since it tells you who wins, and who loses, moving forward. This information is for educational and entertainment purposes only.
