S&500 (SPX) Review as of November 20, 2009

The SPX close with the level cutting the Tenkan sen.

As we can see, Tenkan sen has have a very steep rise couple of sessions back.

My personal rules is:

– if the rise is sharp, then it is time to take profit once it cuts the Tenkan sen

On another note, we can see that the curve for SPX seems to be flattening; a sign of diminishing returns or consolidation.

So, is this a good time to go long on various counters?

Personal gut feel, the gains may not be as substantial as before. With a number of stocks rising because of stimulants plans, quarterly reports for next year are going to provide challenge to the existing stock valuation.

Note:

Trade based on what the chart says…not on gut feel

I think there’s a typo in there. I think you meant “Kijun-sen … steep rise …” in the first sentence.

I can’t remember where I got it. In my notes, I have the following guidelines on top of the typical Tenkan sen – Kijun sen cross.

1. If slope is 45% or more, use Kijun sen.

2. If slope is 60% or more, use Tenkan sen.

3. If 20 – 30 %, use kumo.

What do you think? Does it make sense?

Thanks
