US & UK INDICES OVERVIEW
Trading was somewhat muted this week with the Thanksgiving holiday in the US. However, the S&P 500 was still able to record a healthy gain of 1.0%, to close at 4559. November has been an excellent month for the bulls with a gain to date of 8.7%, its strongest month since July 2022.
On the weekly time frame, price is trading above both the 50 and 200 SMAs (Simple Moving Average). Price is marginally below the pivot high from July 2023. Whilst on the daily time frame, price is also trading above the key moving averages, the 20, 50 and 200 SMAs, and the moving averages are all aligned. Price is now 30% above the October 2022 lows and, given price is above all key moving averages mentioned above, we are actively seeking new positions from our watchlist.
We continue to see individual stocks perform well. Our portfolio currently compromises 18 US stocks and 3 currencies. We have compounded a number of these assets, in turn, delivering excellent profit for our Phoenix community members.
The FTSE 100, the UK’s premier index, had a muted week with a decline of 0.2. Price remains range bound between 7200 and 7700. On the weekly time frame, price remains below the weekly 50 SMA, but remains above the weekly 200 SMA. Should strength return, the next major area of potential resistance is the pivot high from 17 April at 7936. The all-time high is 8047. We continue to monitor this index, waiting for confirmation of direction.
