Do Negative Divergences Matter 5/18/21

When I first started doing MACD charts in Metastock on an Apple 2e computer in 1982, I thought that negative divergences between oscillating indicators and the market averages were the be-all, and end-all in TA.

Truth is, they’re meaningless. We have another one this morning on the hourly chart of the ES fucutures. Like all the others I have seen for the past 39 years, this one could lead to a rollover, or it could lead to reacceleration to the upside. Take your pick. I will take door number two, just because the Fed and Treasury continue to pump godawful amounts of money into the market every day.

That would mean we’re headed for a mini breakout to 4185. And if they clear that, a trip to revisit the highs of last week.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish LiquidityTrader.com, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor, of blessed memory. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both sales, analytical, and trading capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I was a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I was considered an expert in the analysis of failed properties that ended up in the hands of bank REO divisions, the FDIC, and the RTC. Remember those guys? I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. I'm not some Ivory Tower academic, Wall Street guy. My perspective comes from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches, as a real estate broker, mortgage broker, trader, account rep, and analyst. I've watched most of the games these Wall Street wiseguys play from right up close. I know the drill from my 55 years of paying attention. And I'm happy to share that experience with you, right here.
