A Full Moon and Trendlines

Occasionally markets  can  turn  on or near Full or New Moons.  For stocks Full Moons tend  to signal bottoms, New Moons tend to signal tops. 

There’s a Full Moon on 07/13/22.   The daily S&P 500 (SPX) chart courtesy of Trading View illustrates New and Full Moons since late 2021.

Using the parameters of plus or minus two trading days from a New/Full Moon reveals  there have been five effective lunar turn signals  since December 2021.

The turn dates are: 12/20/21 – bottom.

                                   01/04/22 – top.

                                   02/02/22 – top.

                                   03/03/22 – top.

                                   06/29/22 – top.

The hourly SPX chart zooms  in  on short-term trendlines.

Just after the open of the  07/13/22 SPX session, a bottom was  made at a trendline connecting the lows  since the 06/22/22 bottom.

A break below the lower trendline could trigger a drop down to at  least the 06/17/22 bottom at 3636.87.  A  move above the upper trendline could open the door for a  rally at least up to the low 4100 area.

Also, the Full  Moon on 07/13/22 is  a  Super Moon – a  Full  Moon at  its  closest approach to Earth.  The view could be spectacular, especially at Moon rise.
