JPM Short Circuits & Banks Bump Up Into a Glass Ceiling as Semis Soar, Bitcoin Blasts & Block-Brain'd Sir Jamie Eats Crypto Crow

www.zerohedge.com | 10/13/2017 | Staff





Having notched an all-time high by closing at 97.35 on 10/3, JPM appeared to be consolidating over the next 6 sessions - in preparation for another surge higher. But 10/12’s Q3 earnings release session suggests that immediate bullish momentum may have been exhausted and, with it, Sir Jamie’s next (ever-so-lovable and antithetically Populist) all-time high “I’m richer than you” quip has been - akin to PM Jordan's Bitcoin prop traders - placed in limbic limbo.

With the close of the 10/12 session, JPM:

Candlestick - Pattern

registered a bearish engulfing daily candlestick pattern;

on heavy volume;

Rally - Chop - Doji - Bar

after a rally, sideways chop, and doji on the previous daily bar.

Breakdown - Low

a breakdown that closes below the preceding 9/7 swing low of 88.08.

JPM’s strongest support (and 1st downside target) surrounds round number 94, where a small open gap remains unfilled. Should John Pierpont slump (and close) below 94, strong support levels will show themselves just above 90 and 88.

Chart - VanEck - Semiconductor - ETF - SMH

The daily chart of VanEck’ Semiconductor ETF (SMH) clearly - and unmistakably - shows a Super MACD, Super RSI, and Super Stochastics that have each zoomed up, up, and away – into dynamic overbought territory. This confluence of technical developments is noteworthy because our Dynamic OB/OS Levels (DOBOS™) adapt to price action, rather...
