Weekly Tech Charts & Report - June 21 - by TradesAfterWork

Posting this to share with our readers: (We really like these Weekly Technical Briefs by TaW).
The weekly chart of the Nasdaq Composite is for the most part a bull's delight. The Index momentum reflected in the Percentage Price Oscillator (PPO) is about as good as it can get, showing that the intermediate term momentum of the Composite still looks strong. I circled and magnified the weekly candlesticks because we closed last Friday on a bullish engulfing candlestick. As the name implies that is bullish action. The engulfing pattern is formed after a downtrend. It opens lower than the previous week's close and closes higher than the previous week's open. Thus the, white candle completely engulfs the previous week's red candlestick. Note also that the 10 week moving average is trading above the longer 40 week moving average. That's how an index or stock should trend up.
We see similar action on the daily chart of the Composite, with all of the daily major moving averages working in harmony and trending in their proper direction and places. We see the 12 Day SMA above all the longer moving averages. The shorter moving averages should ultimately be trending above their longer moving averages; that reflects that the current upward trend has been in effect for short, intermediate and longer terms. That kind of action is much more sustainable than just the short term moving averages trending up and the other moving averages either moving sideways or down. The PPO on the daily Composite has crossed down but is still above its zero line. This reflects some of the recent short term selling and slowing in daily momentum that we have seen over the previous week.
The S&P 500 Index chart is showing that its PPO has crossed down, although still above the zero line again reflecting daily slowing in momentum. The S&P 500 Index is weaker than the Composite and has been battling to stay above its short term 12 Day SMA. If you look at this chart you can see that we are still below the 12 Day SMA, along with a tightening or sideways action in the prices last week. Hopefully this action will be healthy and we will stay very close or above the 12 day SMA. In a short amount of time this could be just what the index needs in order to rewind and resume its upward trend. Notice that the 200 Day SMA, which sits at 3018, is above the 50 Day SMA at 2951. This will need to change because the shorter term trend moving average of the 50 Day SMA is still trading below its longer term 200 Day SMA. The bulls are still in charge, though.

Wheaton Precious Metals ($WPM) is our stock pick for tomorrow morning. WPM is a Canadian buyer of purchase agreements for silver and gold from mining companies. Gold/Silver Mining can be volatile, so please keep that in mind when you look at this trade. The PPO is just trying to turn up and the RSI just broke above 50. I usually prefer the PPO to be positive, but the PPO looks pretty dynamic and I like the price action with Friday's close on a beautiful large candle. WPM can be bought at $42.15. Place your stop around -5% below your buy price.
