Stock Index Tracking

Current through 4/1 close. All indexes struggled yesterday.

Bold means a change from prior day.

The advance/decline line model moves from cash to a buy. Updated through 4/1 close. In 2019, the model was up 16.48% on the S&P 500 and this year is down -7.64% with the S&P 500 lower by -21.34% through Friday. 5 buy signals and 4 cash signals in 2019. 

We moved to cash at 3116.31 on the S&P 500 and even though we just saw two days in a row above +200 we are adding a new rule that will not buy when above +200 if the next day open is down more than -1%. Instead we will wait another day to see if the 10 DMA remains above +200. They remain above +200 this morning so we are back to a new buy.

Algo/HFT Trading Levels:

The Erlanger Value Lines track the intraday range of resistance, pivot and support used by Algo/HFT Traders. Each day we show where we closed within the range. Update through 4/1 close. EVL Ranges remain above normal and are highlighted in blue.
