Chartology: Watch the Banks this Week

By Andrew Nyquist
After topping with other major market indices on Friday September 14th, the Bank Index (BKX) pulled back over 5% to lateral support… before rallying again. However, this past Friday (just 3 weeks later), the index produced another topping tail at the same identical spot.

On a near term technical basis, this warrants some caution. On the one hand, the Banks have been strong and a big part of the rally. As well, a strong Monday would go along way to erasing the recent tail. On the other hand, we have dual topping tails (potential double top) and an RSI non-confirm (so far). This implies keeping risk on a shorter leash.

Trade safe, trade disciplined.
