Market Forecast For The Week Of 5/29/21
Written By Bo Yoder, Published 5/29/21
The S&P 500 (ETF:SPY)

The S&P 500, (analyzed here using the ETF:SPY) extended the range forward this week which as noted was the most likely scenario.

The inaction this week has “coiled the spring” in the market and I would expect to see an increase of volatility next week. 

In terms of a forecast for this week, I can’t make one with confidence as the odds are about 50/50 right now in both directions as the market’s supply/demand forces are balanced right now.

There is little motivation with the indexes so quiet to add risk this week and I suspect we will see a bullish whipsaw before any retest of the range lows can occur.
Time to keep my powder dry and wait for one side or the other to commit.

Electronic Arts (EA) was on strict probation this week and managed to form a daily head and shoulders pattern which means that next week will either make or break this trade.

Because this “pattern within a pattern” has formed, it allows me to tighten up the stop and reduce the open risk by about half. If the highs at $147 are broken, then I would consider this trade as a failure and would take the loss.

If this stock hasn’t stopped out, or shown significant weakness by the end of trading on Friday, you will see me exiting it as a scratch for nonperformance.

Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) was in a do or die situation last week, and it did nothing to prove that it should remain open. It’s time to scratch the trade and move on. 

The buying power can be better utilized in some other opportunity.

Gold (analyzed here using the ETF:GLD) has been outperforming week after week!

That being said, this market is overbought in the short term, so I would expect a correction to begin to form.

Since this is expected, it’s not going to cause any negative emotions when it occurs.

It’s also a healthy and NEEDED cycle which will let off some pressure and trigger a new round of bullish interest to enter the market.

I’m STILL waiting for the EUR/USD currency pair to work out a textbook head and shoulders reversal pattern on its weekly chart. 

Slowness seems to be a theme as the markets deal with uncertainty from many economic fronts.

Another “tail” on the weekly chart formed this week, and that should bring selling into the market. If the week to come doesn’t produce a clear and significant downward move, then I would take that as a signal to scratch the trade and move on.

If you have been following these forecasts for a while, you will see and feel the cycles as capital is deployed and then profits and losses are locked as risk is taken off. This cycle flows with the odds for directional movement…

So, when you see a few weeks of quiet action, and fewer and fewer open positions, you know it’s time to be cautious in the markets.
