25 Monster Stock Market Predictions For The Week of February 18

The week of February 18 will be a short week with the stock market closed on Monday. This week will be a showdown between the bulls and bears as several key indexes approach significant levels of resistance which will ultimately decide if stocks continue to advance or decline.

S&P 500 (SPY)

The S&P 500 will be the first major index to watch as it approaches a resistance zone of 2,795 to 2,810. I continue to adjust the region because there is a lot of congestion in that area. It makes the region a potentially challenging zone. But an increase above 2,810 clears a path to 2,872.  The S&P 500 Is Racing To 3,000 and Beyond in 2019

Again, I continue to grow more confident that stocks can rise above this level of resistance.

S&P 500, spx

Russell 2000 (IWM)

The Russell is the second major index that requires watching because if it can manage to rise above 1,593 a path opens to 1,710.


Housing (HGX)

The housing sector (HGX) is approaching a key region of resistance around 295. A rise above that level pushes the index on to 315.

Biotech (XBI)

The biotech sector cleared a critical level of resistance at $85.25, and now there is a path to rise to nearly $90.

Apple (AAPLWealth Strength IndexAAPL is Extremely Up and trending Up)

Apple’s consolidation looks to be nearly complete and may be on the move to $182.  So did Buffett buy Apple or sell Apple in the fourth quarter? You better read those filing and see for yourself.  13G/13F which is it?
