Tall dark candlestick is not a good omen for the TSX Index

Candlestick analysis of the tsx index using the daily chart showing a dark candlestick and support levels

TSX Index 6-Month Daily Chart

The TSX Index is in an intermediate downtrend.  There is a support level of 13,000 on the weekly chart but there is a high probability this level will not hold.  The next level to monitor is the reaction low of  12,800. Again, there is a high probability this level will not hold: trading online is all about probabilities.  Cash is the the safest asset class at this stage in the market until we get a better picture of the earnings and the reaction of the the market.

A short-term bounce and back to a lateral trading range? Or the start of a new uptrend?

The tall bullish shaven head candlestick is a graphical representation of the major move of 6.1% for the week of  June 27, 2011: it doesn’t get much better than this for a weekly gain in a major index.  The NASDAQ is in a good position for a test of major resistance of  2,880.  A convincing two-day close of around 2,940, would indicate an intermediate target of 3,160.

The TSX Index must make a convincing (+2%) consecutive two-day close above 13,500 to set-up a test of major resistance at 14,300. At this stage, the TSX is much weaker than the DOW, NASDAQ, or the S&P 500.
