6Tenkan Sen Cross: Weak  Bearish  Signal (minor)
In our study, we consider as important, the signals of the previous posts, summarized above.

A. Although not an official signal, the Price crossing the Tenkan Sen (red line) is considered as an early warning sign of sentiment reversal. In this case from Bull to Bear.


Bulls are still all over this screen. Bears need to stay below the Tenkan Sen to have a chance of taking this one over.

A: We have this week's candle breaking out of the Kumo in another Bearish Signal . The Bulls would take heart from the support lines: Kijun Sen (blue line) and M VWAP 34, that lie below the candle.


Bears are back in force on this screen.

B. The Chikou Span Cross (purple line) of the price line, crossed in and then out - so its Bullish and then Bearish - however with the price in the Kumo we consider the effect as neutral.
C. The Kijun Sen Cross (blue line) at week beginning is Bearish and Neutral as mentioned above.
D.  Price is almost near making a Bearish Kumo Breakout after staying below the Tenkan Sen (red line) and M VWAP 34 all week. The Senkou Span B that price is approaching, lies flat.

The Bears take the advantage, from Bulls in this screen.

CNX Nifty 50 - Triple Screen 'Technical Analysis' - Week: 09 April to 13 April, 2012 - Bears have the last word..

Recap: 
Our outlook, for the week gone by, on the S&P 500 was distinctly Bearish (click),
However, we choose to go with the Bulls for the Indian market (click).
Bulls kept up a stand off, while cat and mouse games ruled (click and click).
Right from under the Bull's Noses, Bears took the Index the global way, in the second half of Friday, leaving the Nifty blushing red.
What next?



Nifty 50: Long Term View (or) Month Chart, each candle is 1 month's price action (or) EOM Chart:
CNX Nifty 50 - End of Month (EOM) Chart - 13 April, 2012. 
The last two red candles are inside the green candle of Feb'2012, in the long term chart above.
The 5 EMA would cross above the 13 SMA if the Nifty touches 5394 this month.
Currently the Bearish Harami's (Feb/Mar candles) effect, is on.
Nifty closed above the 5 EMA, Bulls remain in control of the Long term screen.




Nifty 50: Medium Term View (or) Week Chart, each candle is 1 week's price action (or) EOW Chart:
CNX Nifty 50 - End of Week (EOW) Chart - 13 April, 2012.
Slipping just under the 34 EMA, Bulls have lost the advantage.
The medium term trend had bucked Global Bearishness, until the second half of Friday.
The Bulls would want to get back above the 34 EMA, while the bears would aim for our channel bottom (black).




Nifty 50: Short Term View (or) Day Chart with closing prices in a line graph (or) EOD Chart:
CNX Nifty 50 - End of Day (EOD) Chart - 13 April, 2012.
The journey of the index, to below the green channel bottom, was after quite a fight, as the many touches tell.
The crossovers made by the 5 EMA and 13 SMA were too many in the end, but emphasized their utility.
The MACD stayed stubbornly, sub zero.
Inability of the Index, to get above the 34 EMA, all through the week was the key for Bears.
With the medium term and short term going Bear, Bulls would look at avoiding another Lower Low.



Looking Forward: 
One would watch global cues, as they seem to have a non-technical influence on the Index.
Above 34 EMA on the EOD, the Bulls can wrest back control.
The 200 DMA looks like the next stop once again.
The 34 EMA is above the 200 DMA...long term bullish.
Even if the Nifty loses a steady 50 points every session from here to month end, the 34 EMA would just about get even with the 200 DMA (Nifty would be at 4700 odd, by then :) .......).

S&P 500 - Triple Screen 'Technical Analysis' - Week: 09 April to 13 April, 2012 - Bears Stay over..

Recap: 
Our conclusion in last weekend's analysis was 'Time to Bear it" (click).
As one expected, the week showed us a red candle and price went all the way to the 'week' channel bottom.
Our Intra week EOD Analysis, suggested that Moving VWAP 35 was resistance zone(click).
Almost on cue, S&P 500, reversed from the MVWAP 34 resistance to end 2% in the red for the week.
Lets see, if the Bears are here to stay..



S&P 500: Long Term View (or) Month Chart with closing prices in a line graph (or) EOM Chart:
S&P 500 - End of  Month Chart (EOM) - 13 April, 2012. 
Index has closed below the 10 EMA.
From a long term perspective, its another correction.
Current position of the fast Stochastic is above the 80 mark, with crossover.
None of the short MAs have crossed yet.
Bulls are under a bit of pressure, Bears have a tiny toe hold.



S&P 500: Medium Term View (or) Week Chart, each candle is 1 week's price action (or) EOW Chart:
S&P 500 - End of  Week Chart (EOW) - 13 April, 2012.  
This screen made magic last week - following our call, almost to the letter.
Price reached the Channel bottom and is below all short MAs.
None of the MAs have crossed yet.
RSI heads towards mid point.
Bulls have let this screen stay neutral, with a clear chance of bouncing off the channel bottom.




S&P 500: Short Term View (or) Day Chart where each candle is 1 day's price action (or) EOD Chart:
S&P 500 - End of  Day Chart (EOD) - 13 April, 2012.  
The new Day channel is shown in Yellow.
Price has resistance at the M VWAP 34, and is nudging the channel top.
Staying above the M VWAP 34 and seeing a Bullish cross of some of the short term MAs above... would give strength to Bulls.



Looking Forward: 
Breaking the 'White' Week channel on the downside is the next task for the Bears.
Bulls would use this very channel to jump out of the Day channel and above the MVWAP 34 marked.
1333 is the mark on the EOW, where the 5 EMA crosses below the 13 SMA and Bears call the shots.
A daily dose of 10 points+ should see the Bulls in command by weekend, the 5 EMA would also have crossed above the 13 SMA at 1383 on the EOD.
Bears have given no sign of leaving the short term yet.
Week end updates shall be up.
