Be Careful About Buying These Dips!

    Since mid-September the price of oil has plunged $14 a barrel or 14%. The S&P 500 has declined 4.1%, and the Nasdaq 6.3%. Just over the last two weeks gold has plunged $93 an ounce, or 5.2%.

    The has created short-term oversold conditions that look tempting, and rally attempts are likely.

    But the charts are saying be careful. The previous support at 50-day moving averages has been broken, and may now be overhead resistance.

    In fact in some cases, like oil and the Nasdaq, the 50-day m.a. has already been tested by at least one rally attempt and held, indicating it it is now potentially overhead resistance, and rally attempts might be better handled by selling into them if they approach the m.a.
