Intel (INTC) chart analysis

Intermediate and near-term uptrend for Intel
Chart analysis for Intel showing the intermediate and near-term uptrend with the resistance zone.

Intel 6-Month Candlestick Chart

The major trend is down for Intel (ticker:INTC) but the intermediate and near-term trends are up. The company reports after the bell on Thursday and this could be the catalyst to break above the resistance zone. But January options expire on Friday and there is always a tendency for a stock to be pinned to the nearest option price which is $22.50.

Reference the website for Intel to review the fundamental data and latest earnings report.

TSX Index chart analysis showing the index closing again above 12,500. Now there has to be follow-through above the bullish shaven head candlestick.

TSX Index 6-Month Candlestick chart

This is the second close this week above resistance of 12,500. Now there has to be follow-through on the bullish shaven head candlestick if the the TSX Index is to hold above resistance. Then there will be a new support level (reversal of roles) of 12,500 and an increased probability for the index to test major resistance of 12,800. As you can see from the above candlestick chart, the TSX Index has struggled to breakout above resistance of 12,500 since September, 2012 and I could go back further on the weekly chart where 12,500 was a significant resistance point.

What is the trend for the TSX Index? The near-term trend is up, the intermediate trend is up and the major trend is sideways.

Reference the last chart analysis for the TSX Index which was also based on the daily chart.

Technical Analysis for Dow Jones Industrial Average

Bullish shaven head candlestick — first trading day of 2013
Bullish shaven head candlestick for the DJIA on the first trading day of 2013.

DJIA 6-Month Candlestick Chart

The tall bullish shaven head and shaven bottom candlestick is a graphical representation of the euphoria after a deal on the so-called fiscal cliff. It was excellent follow through for the bullish engulfing pattern of December 31. The market teetered at major support on December 27 and 28 when a deal was less than certain.

Technical analysis is all about assessing probabilities and there is a high probability that the Dow will test major resistance of 13,600. But there is a a lot of froth in this market as represented by the VIX and it can turn on a dime. The VIX has fallen 35.4 percent over the past two sessions, the biggest 2-day percentage drop in the history of the index. The next big news event is the employment report this Friday.

I would like to see the 10-Year U.S. Treasury close convincingly above 1.900% as confirmation that the Dow and S&P500 would have a chance to continue the near-term uptrend.
