US & UK INDICES OVERVIEW
This week the US markets were shortened due to the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday.
On the monthly time frame, the S&P 500 has continued November with modest strength, gaining 3.2% to date – this follows a gain of 7.8% in October. Since the low on 13th October, price has gained 15%. On the weekly time frame, the S&P 500 eeked out a gain of 1.6%. On the daily time frame, price remains above both the 20 and 50 SMAs. Price remains marginally below the 200 SMA, which may act as resistance next week. As discussed last week, the outlook for the S&P is to watch for further price action to challenge both the 4000 round number and the daily 200 SMA. the S&P 500 has yet to trade above the daily 200 SMA since April.
The Nasdaq 100 gained just 0.7% for the week. Whilst the Dow Jones was again the best performer of the US indices with a gain of 1.9% over the shortened week.
This week the FTSE 100, the UK index, gained 1.4%, to close clear of the weekly 50 SMA. Price remains above the weekly 200 SMA.
OUTPERFORMING ASSET FOR THE WATCHLIST
Eli Lilly And Company - LLY
Eli Lilly And Company is a stock which first floated in 1970; it wasn’t until twenty-five years later that a trend emerged, lasting over two years! The stock suffered a low point following the great financial crisis of 2007-8, but since then has been in a long-term trend, gaining some 1,350%! Whilst trends historically haven’t been the cleanest, price shows signs of genuine bullishness. Price broke out above last year’s high in March and has since gained over 28% whilst the S&P 500 has declined by 10% over the same time frame.
On the weekly time frame, the price is trading above the 50 and 200 SMA, and the Sublime trend filter is green. This week’s price continued its strength to the upside, retesting the all-time high created earlier in the month. The Sublime trend filter is also green on the daily time frame. Price is currently trading above all moving averages, which are all aligned.
With earnings out of the way, a continuation pattern above the current all-time high could offer our Phoenix community members an opportunity in a bullish stock. The next area of resistance is the $400 round number.
