(8/29/06 -- Rev. 8/19/11) -- 'The Spy Left Out In The Cold' -- ('SLOITC').
BEYOND SUPPORT AND RESISTANCE
Many authors here have excellent analysis of support and resistance levels.
Knowing WHERE price may turn is crucial indeed.
It is the goal here to move beyond that knowledge to know WHY price turns at those levels.
What are the forces driving the quick moves toward and away from support and resistance levels?
FEAR AND BREADTH !
(6/7/06) -- The Accumulation/Distribution and On Balance Volume lines track the intra-day volume patterns.
The NAADV/NADEC line tracks the Nasdaq advance/decline ratio.
The four other lines are smoothed ratios which invert the following indicators to mimic market action:
-- two breadth indicators (TRIN and TRINQ); and
-- two fear indicators (VIX and CPC).
To my eyes, there are clear moments in the charts below when price and the fear/breadth lines diverge markedly.
These times are pegged 'The SPY Left Out in the Cold' or 'SLOITC' for short.
Depending on the time frame in which one trades, these divergences can IMO be used to anticipate possible market turning points.
