Dow/S&P 500/NDX Outlook:

Indices considerably above long-term MAs, pullback danger excessive
On Friday, I mentioned the potential for the Nasdaq Composite to deal with the 10ok threshold in 2020 because it did 5k again in 2000 – a serious prime. However earlier than presumably seeing the 10ok mark achieved we might first see a correction develop.
The NDX is at present buying and selling practically 2.7 customary deviations above the 200-day MA, a formidable feat to say the least. Solely about zero.6% of days for the reason that 2009 low has the index traded at such an excessive to the long-term transferring common. Every time extremes of this magnitude have been file it not lengthy after coincided with a corrective transfer. The final occasion was in January 2018.
The S&P 500 and Dow Jones are sitting in related conditions to a barely lesser diploma. A reversion again in direction of the 200-day MA appears affordable given the place we’re in the present day. It’s doable a few of the overbought situations are labored off through time, however there’s nearly definitely going to be some comparatively steep losses as a part of the corrective sequence that give shorts the higher hand.
However earlier than going out and attempting to choose a prime, it’s a good suggestion to attend for some confirming worth motion. That’s, look ahead to a sudden break decrease that signifies a willingness by market members to hit the bid, one thing now we have seen none of these days. We could be close to a pullback when it comes to time, however the remaining push larger might be sharp and painful if caught on the improper aspect.
With a sudden break and draw back worth motion, larger volatility will assist give higher traction for these merchants seeking to reap the benefits of short-term swings. On condition that January typically brings plenty of participation and the market is primed to maneuver, the following few weeks might be an thrilling body.
