Blake Robben of Archer Financial Services technically analyzes the stock market on a monthly basis to come up with an objective strategy for trading S&P futures during 2015.
As we begin 2015, there are plenty of opinions on this year's potential stock index futures market returns. The median forecast is around a 15% gain for 2015. Do you really put any faith in a financial markets commentator's opinion whose apparent job is to be market cheerleader, a permabull perhaps? Investors are getting drunk on 25% returns over the past three years. Why should this year be any different? Well, let's technically analyze this market on a monthly basis and come up with an objective strategy.
S&P 500 Futures—Monthly Continuation
Bottom Line Analysis:
Key off 2036 as the long or short trigger event. On any close above 2036 for S&P 500 futures, look for monthly resistance points to be upside targets. Conversely, if closes are below 2036, look for monthly support levels as downside targets.
