Black and White Technical Report 19/09/2022

XJO WEEKLY Price structure:


Follow through from the BUY hammer was limited with a quick look over the 6930 level before closing at the low and again retesting the tentative trendline. The hangman reversal bar has been further confirmed as a lower high (below7200) with the retest of the June low underway. The “range” high to low is noticeably larger for the down close bars over the past 5 months, something that should be acknowledged by all traders.

Indicator: Relative strength 14:

Relative strength has again closed below the 50 level and set a lower high as part of the overall decline in relative strength. Price momentum has turned negative on the lower side of 50. However, should Relative strength move above the key 50 level a sign of improving price momentum would prevail.

Comments from Last week: Following the impulsive price movement 2 weeks ago the Index has moved lower to fulfill the impulse lower. With late week buying the high close has set a “hammer” bar buy signal. With follow through higher this may set a higher low point and early indications of a new trend. However, the close remains below the 6930 level. A close over this level would signal a retest of 7200 underway.


XJO DAILY Price structure:

Strong down close bars last Wednesday and Friday, with Friday closing below the 6765 level and on the low for the session. Given the bars are large range high to low shows the sellers in control of the session. The Daily trend resumes to down, a break of the pipe reversal low will have buyers on the wrong side of the market and may bring in Stop loss selling, as the June low become the target level.

Indicator: Relative strength 14:

The Relative strength Indicator (14) reflecting the underlying price momentum has moved lower below the 50 level indicating weak momentum. Relative strength is moving in sync with the trending action of the market and does not offer any trading signal other than momentum is to the downside.

Indicator: VOLUME:

Last Friday’s higher volume bar was developed from an INDEX re-weighting event. The rally early last week was set on low volume showing a lack of conviction by market traders.
Only stronger volumes over 1Bil on a Daily basis would indicate strong new money buying.

Comments from Last week: Buying has set a late week pipe reversal signal at the completion of an identifiable a,b,c movement a highly reliable reversal pattern evidenced by the follow through last Friday. A further close over the 6930 level would offer a further bullish signal, First daily resistance remains at 7130..

S&P 500 WEEKLY Price structure:

Weekly outside range, a very bearish signal of reversal and being conducted at the key level of 4050 points resistance level. This confirms the FO+1 point as the high point until a close above 4050 that may retest that level. The Primary trend of the S&P500 is down with the 3715 level currently being retested.

Indicator: Relative strength Indicator 14.

The reading below the 50 level again sets up the sell signal, last week the indicator turned higher, indicating a change in momentum, this week reversing the momentum. A movement towards and over the 50 level would be a very strong short term bullish signal. Positive momentum requires a reading above the key level of 50.

Black and White Technical Report 19/09/2022, FP Markets

Comments from Last week: The outside period set last week (OPu) is a highly reliable signal indicating a low is now in place with a close at the 4050 resistance level. A decisive follow through would be very bullish for a retest higher past 4200 to again test the 4545 level. A breakout above the 4250 level sets a new primary trend in place. Price reversal at this juncture would be a very bearish outcome for a strong move lower..

S&P 500 DAILY Price structure: Developing bullish structure.

Gap open sell confirmed with the large range decline last Tuesday has been followed by a break of the Trendline, however the current gap open is regarded as a short term buy signal within the current down trend. This is the place to watch for a reversal pattern like a pivot point or 3 bar reversal. A test and reject of the trendline would be very bearish in the coming days.

Indicator: Relative strength 14:

Relative strength has continued to move higher from above the 30 level to test above the 50 level and again move lower as price action moves lower. Price weakness for this level will see the RSI move lower.

Black and White Technical Report 19/09/2022, FP Markets

NASDAQ DAILY Price structure: Primary DOWN Trend remains

The Nasdaq posted a short follow through from the 3 bar low to also post a Gap open sell signal that was immediately followed thru with a large range down close bar last Tuesday. Again a retest of the tentative (2 touch) trendline is underway. Traders would look for support at this level following last Friday’s gap lower. (gap open buy signal)

Indicator: Relative strength 14:

The Relative strength indicator moving back towards the 50 level a signal of positive momentum. With a continuing move, the indicator may cross lower below the 50 level, price movement will remain positive with a continued reading above 50 and have the potential to retest higher levels.

Black and White Technical Report 19/09/2022, FP Markets

USD Spot GOLD – DAILY: Is it close to a Bull market? Answer = No

Gold remains with a well defined down trend with the most recent “bear flag” following through with a break lower below the $1676 support to test the March 2021 support point at $1656.0 Currently a small bullish Relative strength divergence signal is developing as the chart also shows an early stage price reversal pattern at this support level.

Indicator: Relative Strength 14:

Black and White Technical Report 19/09/2022, FP Markets

Australian dollar Gold now remains trendless as price consolidates. The break in price lower last Thursday has not seen any bullish reversal last Friday, A continuing move lower could be
expected on a stronger $AUD. This will keep pricing pressure on the Australian Gold producers and may set lower prices this week.

COPPER DAILY Price structure: “V” recovery

Last week saw a retest both ways between resistance at $3.80 and support shown at $3.47 with the closing price equal to the opening price for the week. Expect consolidation above $3.47 in the coming days, a breakout over the $3.80 level would signal a ne Primary UP trend underway.

Indicator: Relative strength 14:

Current reading has swung from below the 30-level to read higher as downward momentum has slowed to the pipe reversal 2weeks ago, however the current reading remains below the
key 50 level. The key now, is for the RSI to swung back above the 50 level as a reflection of ongoing price gains. A sharp cross of the 50 level is required to offer a strong buy signal.

Black and White Technical Report 19/09/2022, FP Markets

Comments from Last week: Copper remains at risk of moving lower. However the pipe reversal is a strong signal buyers have re-entered giving price support for a retest of $3.80. A further close over $3.80 may set a new primary movement to retest the $4.0 level.


Volatility reading has moved sharply higher and remains above the 13 level indicating forward pricing of PUT options remains strong. In general, lower equity prices or consolidation of equity prices is indicated as the reading remains above the 13 level. For continued support of equities, the XVI should move below the “13” level. The cost of 3month forward PUT options is decreasing from recent elevated levels. The XVI is the difference between 3-month forward pricing of ETO Options against current month.
As markets anticipate events, the forward priced option volatility changes, hence as forward price changes, this “skew” in pricing is measured in this XVI. The XVI value works as an inverse observation to the underlying market.

USD DOLLAR INDEX Price structure:

Current price action displays a consolidation pattern above the 109.47 level, following the strong impulsive move last Tuesday. This current 109.47 support level will the key area to hold into next Friday’s close.
