MomentumOptions.com Mid-Market Update for 11/8/2017
Transports Fall Below 50-Day Moving Average
The Dow Jones Transportation Average ($TRAN) recently formed a triple-top peak on its run towards and above the 10,000 level throughout October. Tuesday’s close below the 50-day moving average was a slightly bearish development with today’s low tapping 9,596. Current support is at 9,600-9,550. Resistance is at 9,700-9,750 and represents the mid-September double-top breakout above this level.
The divergence between the Dow and the Dow Transports is a little troublesome as the two tend to trade in tandem. This could signal a pullback in the blue-chips, at some point, if there is continued weakness in the Transports. RSI has been in a downtrend throughout the month with risk to late July support near the 30 level.
Heading into the final hours of trading, the Dow is up 8 points to 23,565 while the S&P 500 is gaining 2 points to 2,593. The Nasdaq is higher by 14 points to 6,782 and the Russell 2000 is off a point to 1,478.
I’m working on two possible New Trades so stay locked-and-loaded into the closing bell in case I take action.
