TSX Index Sector Performance

The gain in materials over the past week gave the TSX Index a tentative close above 13,500. Can the materials sector continue to advance without upward movement in the underlying commodities?

Reference the recent chart analysis for copper which is struggling at the resistance level.

U.S. Treasury 10-Year Yield Chart

3.00% is a key resistance point
The key resistance point for the 10-year Treasury is 3.00% with an indicated intermediate target of 3.80% on a breakout.

10-Year Treasury Yield

The 10-year Treasury closed at 2.924% today as it moves closer to the key resistance point of 3.00%. A breakout above this resistance point would indicate a target of 3.80%.

Reference my last chart analysis of the 10-yeat Treasury.

I am not surprised to see the gravestone doji on the today’s TSX candlestick daily chart. The doji is a significant reversal indicator. It indicates that the near-term trend that started on Monday has ended at the major resistance level of 13,500. Like I said, this is no surprise.

Reference previous posts for the TSX Index showing the 13,500 resistance level.

Coffee spot price weekly chart

A major downtrend for coffee would be an understatement
Major downtrend for the price of coffee over the last three years.

Coffee 3 Year Weekly Chart

The 200-day simple moving average is a good approximation of the major downtrend for coffee. Reference my recent chart analysis for copper for another commodity that has seen better times.

The relatively low spot price for coffee is definitely not reflected in the price of your daily caffeine fix at Tim Hortons.

TSX Sector Indexes YTD Performance

TSX Index up 7.74% YTD

TSX Index YTD Sector Performance courtesy of StockCharts.com

Energy, Financial and Materials represent 75% of the TSX Index. The Materials sector which represents 16% of the TSX index is down 31.89% YTD. This sector is heavily weighted to gold producers and there is not a ray of light on the horizon for gold or base metals. Reference my chart analysis for copper.

In summary, with the huge underperformance by materials there is a low parbability that the TSX can break major resistance of 13,500.

Reference the sector performance for the S&P 500 Index which is a stark contrast to the TSX sector performance.

Copper 3-year weekly chart analysis

Copper could test major support

Copper weekly chart showing the major downtrend, intermediate downtrend and the near-term downtrend

Copper is trading below the 200-day and 50-day moving averages. The major trend is down. The intermediate trend is down. The near-term trend is down. And copper could test the major support zone in the above weekly chart.

The TSX Index will not break resistance of 13,500 with the negative implications of this chart on the materials sector.

Reference the last chart analysis for copper.
