Hello MarketClub members everywhere, today I'm going to be looking at some key levels in the markets. If these levels are breached, it would indicate a further correction to the recent rallies. For the past 4 to 5 weeks the equity markets have been moving steadily higher and are now extremely overbought. That condition alone does not necessarily translate to the markets correcting, however, 85% of all stock market newsletters are bullish on equities. History has taught us that when there is a large consensus of people thinking the same way the reverse occurs as there is no one left to buy. The markets could well be at a consensus crossroads right now.

What's Next For The Stock Market?
Are the markets going to continue moving higher or reverse and retest their lows again? There seems to be a disconnect in the indices with new highs mainly on the NASDAQ, thanks to Tesla, Netflix and some other tech leaders. The S&P 500 seems to be lagging and the DOW is in a funk. Many professional traders will be looking for the tone of the market today, does it seem positive or negative? One of the tricks they will probably employ is to give the market a half hour or even an hour to set its trading range for the day. Should the market move below the low of the first 30 or 60 minutes of the day, then there's a pretty good chance that you could see further selling come into the market later on in the day. Conversely, should the market break over the high of the first 30 or 60 minutes of the day, look for upside momentum to continue. Let’s see how events play out.
