STOXX 600 Banks Index: Freaking Weak

Monthly time frame:

  • This is an ugly chart
  • The Stoxx 600 Banks Index has not even been able to reclaim the 0.382 retracement of crash from the 2007 Top
  • Price is now in no man's land with the risk of a retest of the 2011 low at 114 if a bottom is not established soon

  • From the 2015 high we can count a 3-wave down leg
  • If the resistance located at R1 = 157.34 is reclaimed there is a "pocket of air" until the following resistance R2 = 174

  • Monthly oscillators are oversold (RSI and Stochastic) but the MACD has a bearish signal cross in force and in addition is has lost the zero line. Hence a potential rebound will be most likely countertrend as long as the bearish signal cross is not cancelled

Weekly time frame:

  • The week ended with a Harami. This pattern in prolonged down trend can establish a turning point.
  • Even if from the July 2015 top we have a 3-wave down leg, price is below all major moving averages; hence a rebound should be considered a countertrend move. However the Stoxx 600 Banks Index could achieve a 10% rebound towards the R1 = 157
  • A trend reversal would require to breach the trend line from the 2015 top and reclaim R2 = 174

Daily time frame:

  • The pattern from the July 2015 top is corrective. So far we have a 3-wave down leg, and the third wave down can be considered a thrust following a Triangle completed on December 12. The issue is if the third wave is done. If it were done a countertrend wave (2) or (X) should achieve T1 = 155 -156 (0.382 retracement and horizontal resistance) or even T2 = 162 - 163 (50 dma and 0.5 retracement)

  • If a short-term bottom is in place last Monday's gap at 137.80 must not be closed, in which case odds would favor at least another up leg with target at T1

  • Daily oscillators are aligned with the scenario of a larger rebound although we shall see if the RSI can breach overhead resistance (Trend line from April 2015)
