In today’s post, I share some high level insights on the U.S. stock market indices and important sectors.
Several are tied to an annotated chart image to help illuminate my thoughts.
The S&P 500 is well above its MFU-2 (Money Flow Unit) price level and has cleared its 200-day moving average.
I still have an upside MFU-3 price target at 3360 from here.

The Nasdaq Composite has its 50-day moving average crossing above its rising 200-day moving average which is positive. We are using the weekly regression trend channel for its next price target area.

The Russell 2000 needs to clear a big price resistance area just ahead of where the stock index is now. I am on the sidelines waiting to see how the index trades into this zone.

We have the Mid-Caps (MDY) clearing above a MOB band which is positive. This recent move higher has generated an MFU-3 price target just under the 2018 high.
I highlighted the relative performance of the Momentum Factor ETF (MTUM) relative to the S&P 500 Low Volatility ETF (SPLV) last week when the ration reversed from our MFU-3 target. There is a downside Money Flow Unit-2 that is targeting a decline into its 50-day moving average.
The Consumer Discretionary sector for the U.S. and global basis has jumped up in our ranking to number 3 behind Technology and Health Care. This would be a good area to look for long ideas.
