Death Cross Killed the Santa Rally?

On Friday, 12/7/2018, the S&P 500 presented a pattern called the “Death Cross.” This may sound like a Darth Vader move of some kind, but it is simpler than that, and a whole lot less ominous.

The “Death Cross” is when the 50 day moving average crosses under the 200 day moving average.

Also, quite often (not always . . .) there is a seasonal phenomena called the “Santa Rally,” where the market goes up in December.

So, did the “Death Cross” kill the Santa Rally? I break it all down and show the key levels to watch for in this weeks video.

As always, I really want to hear from you! Please leave your questions and comments. I respond to every one.

    thank you, always looking forward to your views !
    are you looking for 2603-2818 any time in the day, or on the close only ?

    thank you,

      I was looking for a break of $2603 – and it happened today, but then price closed higher. A close below that level would be mover convincing . . .
