Still an ominous chart pattern for the TSX index
Reference the previous analysis of the TSX Index.
Reference my chart settings for Bigcharts and practice using candlesticks with the confirming indicators.
Update for June 11, 2011: TSX index did not hold major support. Time to reference the previous weekly chart analysis for the TSX which highlights the downside risk. Obviously, a relatively high cash position—above 50%—is prudent at this stage in the market.
If the U.S. economy doesn’t rebound solidly, if the European debt crisis worsens, or if China, India or Brazil hits a more-serious speed bump, it will come as a nasty shock to a lot of people, and could send stocks down a lot lower.
