May 15 Reversal Intraday Trending Stock Scan and Update

May 15, 2014: 12:55 PM CST

A bull trap outcome collapsed the market down away from 1,900 toward lower targets as seen on our S&P 500 indtraday chart.

Let’s take a look at the reversal and key levels to watch intraday – and which stocks are potential trend day trading candidates.

The downside reversal – with plenty of divergences – from the 1,900 index level triggered a Bull Trap and Reversal outcome today with the gap and collapse under 1,890 then 1,885.

The result was a feedback loop of selling pressure, both from sellers aggressively entering while buyers painfully exiting (at least short-term traders who bought the highs).

Price fell from the cascade of sell orders and Sector Breadth (chart below) flashed a high bearish reading.

The key level here will be the potential “Rounded Reversal” chart pattern that may trigger (and confirm) above the 1,868 and especially 1,870 level.

Otherwise, caution is again the word of the day.

The scale of the chart obscures the damage the market suffered from the morning meltdown.

Yes, Utiliies and Technology are the “best” performing sectors from the day, but a closer look shows that 16% of stocks in these sectors are positive on the day.

At the moment, no Materials stocks (ni the S&P 500) are positive and almost no Industrial or Financial Stocks are positive right now.

When money flow shifts, it tends to shift rapidly and powerfully – as we’re seeing today.

What stock names are potential Trend Day Trading Candidates?  Let’s start with the bears first:

Bristol-Myers SQUIBB (BMY), Allegheny Tech (ATI), Caterpillar (CAT – once a leader), and Joy Global (JOY).

If you can’t resistance taking the risk or thrill of fighting intraday money flow, then Cisco (CSCO), Kinder Morgan (KMI), Symantec (SYMC), and Expeditors Int’l (EXPD) may be bullish candidates on a sell-day (that may develop an upswing retracement into the close).

    Yes indeed Cory, there was a market reversal today Thursday May 15, 2014.

    On Tuesday May 13, 2014, The Euro, FXE, the Swiss Franc, FXF, and the British Pound Sterling, FXB, all started to die as a currency. Currency traders sold the Euro, FXE, to close lower at 135.28.

    The see saw destruction of fiat wealth commenced in the Eurozone on the failure of credit. specifically the failure of trust in the world central banks to continue to stimulate investment gains as well as global growth. With the trade lower in Italy, EWI, the world has passed through an inflection point: the world has pivoted from the age of credit into the age of debt servitude.

    On Wednesday May 14, 2014, there was a stock market reversal as Volatility, ^VIX, XVZ, traded higher, as the S&P 500, SPY, traded lower from its blow off market high, as Aerospace, PPA, such as LMT, Semiconductors, SOXX, such as MU, Retail, XRT, such as DDS, JWN, Consumer Services, IYC, such as, DIS, Global Industrial Producers, FXR, such as WHR, FLS, HON, Design Build Companies, FLM, such as Fluor, FLR, and Transports, XTN, such as UNP, DAL, SWFT, traded lower.

    World Stocks, VT, Nation Investment, EFA, and Dividends Excluding Financials, DTN, traded lower from their market highs, evidencing the failure of credit, that is trust in the world central banks’ monetary authority to simulate investment gains and global growth.

    Eight factors evidence the failure of credit; these include the trade lower in the following:

    1) The Russell 2000, IWM, IWC, traded lower as the credit sensitive Small Cap Pure Value Stocks, RZV, the Small Cap Pure Growth Stocks, RZG, the Small Cap Industrials, PSCI, the Small Cap Consumer Staples, PSCC, the Consumer Recreational Goods, POOL, THO, WGO, PII, ESCA, traded lower, on the traded lower in Regional Banks, KRE.

    2) Eurozone Nations, EZU, Portugal, PGAL, Ireland, EIRL, Austria, EWO, and Italy, EWI, traded lower. Ireland’s Bank, IRE, and the National Bank of Greece, NBG, traded lower; these are shown the way is lower in the European Financials, EUFN.

    3) European Credit, EU, traded lower.

    4) Credit Services, AXP, NNI,V, PRAA, DFS, FCFS, AGM, SLM, CACC, ECPG, CIT, MA, HEES, URI, traded lower

    5) Homebuilders, XHB, and ITB, traded lower; and US Infrastructure, PKB, such as MWA, FTK, WSO, FLT, MMM, AAON, and PRIM; and Building Materials, and Manufactured Housing, CVCO, traded lower.

    6) Life Insurance Companies, such as PUK, SYA, GNW, traded lower.

    7) Industrial Textile Manufacturers, DXYN, UFI, AIN, MHK, traded lower.

    8) Leasing Companies, HEES, URI, CAR, HTZ, UHAL, GMT, TGH, AER, traded lower

    On Thursday, May 15, 2014, at market open, the Interest Rate on the US Ten Year Note, ^TNX, traded sharply lower to 2.51%, as the bond vigilantes anticipated huge flows out of Equity Investments and into Credit Investments, as is seen by Aggregate Credit, AGG, blasting to a new all time high. The Steepner ETF, STPP, plummeted, reflecting a flattening of the 10 30 US Sovereign Debt Yield Curve, $TNX:$TYX, as investors flocked to so called safety in US Ten Year Notes, TLT.

    The death of currencies, and the failure of credit, has commenced destructionism, replacing the former inflationism as the dynamic of economic activity.

    Falling Major World Currencies, DBV, and Emerging Market Currencies, CEW, means the crush of investment in Global Growth, DNL. There are no markets anymore. Ireland, EIRL, was the crown jewel of debt trade investing and currency carry trade investing, in the age of credit and the age of currencies; now with IRE, JHX, IR, CRH, RYAAY, XL, ACN, trading lower it is one of the age of debt servitude loss leaders. And the death of the wheels of economic activity, means the dissolution of traditional governance. Fiat money is being replace by diktat money. And democratic governance is being replaced by regional fascism, as communicated in Bible Prophecy of Daniel 2:20-45 and Revelation 13:1-4

    It is really a difficult scenario when market goes for a reversal especially for newbies, as they don’t know exactly when to pull the plug therefore struggle badly. I love to trade with OctaFX, as they have great rebate system where I make 15 USD profits whenever I complete 1 lot size, so that allows me to keep trade short because no matter what I am always going to get decent profits and also for withdrawal I receive it instantly.

    I agree with Sunny for a newbie trader there are two most
    important thing that can make them successful or failure. One is the good
    trading condition and second is how good the promotions we get. I also am a
    huge fan of OctaFX because of their great cash back (rebate) service, as you
    mention it allow us to earn 15 USD, but that’s not it we can get as many
    clients as we want and we can earn so much money monthly.
