Hong Kong

Asia continued to rally overnight as the global equity rally continues to pick up strong momentum. What appeared to be most encouraging after the Shanghai break out yesterday is that Hong Kong’s Hang Seng broke out in today’s session. The index crossed a strong level of resistance at 28,160 and now is likely heading towards 28,980.

Japan’s Nikkei also cleared resistance at 20,951 and appears to be on a path to rise to around 21,981.



Shanghai appears to be on its way to 2,825.



The UK FTSE is attempting to break out and rise above resistance at 7,200.

The only significant breakouts I am waiting on at this point is the KOSPI, which could happen tonight and the German DAX, which is yet to be determined.

U.S. Stocks


The VIX is on the verge of a mega breakdown and could fall to back to 12. That is extremely bullish for stocks.


S&P 500 (SPX)

The S&P 500 continues to show signs for a rise in the index to 2,795.

Netflix (NFLXWealth Strength IndexNFLX is Moderately Flat and trending Down)

Netflix is trading above resistance of $360. But the key will be staying above $360 and rising further. Should it stay above $360, it continues to trend higher towards $380.

Amazon (AMZNWealth Strength IndexAMZN is Moderately Flat and trending Up)

Amazon continues to rise, and despite the overall trend remaining lower, the stock does seem to be heading towards $1,680 first.

Activision (ATVIWealth Strength IndexATVI is Moderately Up and trending Up)

We noted that giant gap fill in Activision around $40.50. For now, that support is holding. My first thought was that it could fall to $35.

Tesla (TSLAWealth Strength IndexTSLA is Moderately Flat and trending Up)

I have looked for Tesla to rise back to $333. It has been more of a challenge than I had thought. Yesterday the stock failed at a downtrend that I had not expected. The path just got more challenging.

All of my analysis pointed to GM having trouble getting beyond this $39 -40 level. While I haven’t look at the options data lately, that RSI overwhelming points to a lower price ahead for the stock. GM’s Stock May Face A Rocky Road Following Quarterly Results



PayPal is on the verge of a big break out should it rise above $95.


Acadia (ACAD)

Acadia held support very well at $21, and now it needs to get above $24.
