Markets: Some key charts / forecasts from Sep, Oct and Nov 2018

The markets have certainly turned medium term bearish, and the bearishness has accelerated since the mid-terms as the US-China trade deal remains elusive (no surprises here though). I am still betting on SPY 255 and QQQ 152 to be reached before Dec 15. Following are some of the key charts / forecasts that I had posted on StockTwits / Twitter over the last 2 months:

Though I have been bearish since mid-September, this XLF chart was the most important one (Banking & Financials which probably remains the Lead indicator for the markets) that helped me conclude with conviction that the markets were really in for a deep correction over the medium term, despite the booming US economy. The technical positioning of QQQ along with AMZN and AAPL further helped confirm my bearish theory for Oct – Dec.
