TSX Index Monthly Logarithmic Chart

I analyze the long-term charts of the major indexes and proceed to the near-term charts. Reference the last chart analysis of the TSX Index based on the weekly chart.

When you invest, you are playing the odds: there is never a certain win in the markets.  At this stage, the odds of a major downside correction outweigh the upside.  It is prudent to stay on the sidelines with an above average cash position.

TSX Index Candlestick Chart

The intermediate trend is down for the index: cash is king.

The reversal of roles from support to resistance or resistance to support is an important concept in technical analysis. In the above chart, I highlighted a real time example where 12,000 was support on the chart analysis last week. It is now the resistance level for the TSX Index: at least for now.

Technical Analysis: TSX Index candlestick chart

TSX Index in a consolidation range

TSX Index candlestick chart analysis showing a consolidation range

TSX Index Weekly Chart

The following are the key points from the above chart analysis:

  • The near-term trend is sideways.
  • Trading in a consolidation range.
  • Support is 12,000.
  • Resistance is 12,500.
  • Reference the Oct 3 post regarding major support of 11,000.
  • I explained the double top reversal pattern in the June 18 post.
  • Another post explaining the double top reversal pattern on May 6.
  • The April 24 post warned of the double top.
  • The possibility of a double top was raised in the April 14 post.

What is a reasonable trading strategy at this point in the market?

The TSX Index is trading in a near-term consolidation range as indicated on the chart. A neutral trading strategy with an above average cash position would be appropriate. A confirmed break (+2% for two days) above the 12,500 resistance level would be a reason to add cautiously to long positions. A confirmed break below support of 12,000 would be a reason to liquidate longs.

Past posts for the TSX Index provide continuity in the analysis:

Reference the last chart analysis dated Nov 4 for the TSX Index. This chart identified the harami cross candlestick pattern with a tweezers top. You can also review the TSX Index Category for a sequential listing of charts.
