Independence Day?

By Michael Gable 

As we forewarned last week, we thought that the S&P500 chart was actually looking pretty good and it was looking as though it wanted to break higher, despite the bearishness out there, and that October may well be to be a good month for markets. Last night the S&P 500 Index rose to a record high, although the Australian market is still about 100 points away from the July peak. 

In early September, before the Saudi air strikes, we made the observation that early positioning seemed to be occurring in the energy space. You may also have noticed that we have recently been including more charts on resource stocks. It is not a coincidence. In some ways the market and the flow of money is trying to tell us something about the outlook for the global economy. Today's report looks at nickel miner Independence Group ((IGO)).

The consolidation in the IGO share price from the last month appears to be ending, with IGO tentatively breaking higher yesterday. It is also starting to trigger a buy signal on the daily MACD (circled). Ideally, we would like to see a close above $6.40 to confirm the move higher.
