Mike’s Reading The Markets (RTM) Premium Content – FREE 2-WEEK TRIAL


This will be the last blog for the next week to two weeks. I have my surgery on Friday to repair my herniated disc, and then I will be out of commission for several days. Thank you for all the support and kindness; it is appreciated, as is your loyalty to me over the past few years.

As I was writing today’s blog, I thought I had a deja-vu for a moment. It turns out it wasn’t deja-vu because it actually happened. The Day was January 29, 2018. The story; 4 STOCKS THAT ARE SIGNALING THE STOCK MARKET IS READY TO FALL. In that story, I noted how the RSIs of AMZN, MSFT, and GOOGL all had very overbought RSIs. Apple was in the mix for other reasons. Of course, things got really ugly after that through February 8.

The same thing is emerging today, with the biggest stocks all reaching very overbought reading. On the surface, stocks did a bunch of nothing today, rising by around 10 bps. It really wasn’t a great day, and if not for Apple, the index probably would have been down. The S&P 500 EW (RSP) was actually down about 15 bps today, so that’s evidence enough.

But remember what I wrote above.


The NASDAQ 100 (QQQ) managed to finish the day with an RSI of 75.5, a pretty high reading, well not pretty high, very high. I will mention this again, in case you have not seen it from me enough. When the QQQ RSI gets this high, the outcomes are not good most of the time, including January 2018.

Apple (AAPL)

Apple is no different, with an RSI, back over 80. This is not a sustainable level.

Microsoft (MSFT)

Microsoft is no different, with an RSI currently at 76.1, coupled with the completion of its 5 waves up.

Alphabet (GOOGL)

As it is for Alphabet with RSI of 73 and rising wedge pattern.

Amazon (AMZN)

As is Amazon, with its now lower reading of 70 on the RSI.

Nvidia (NVDA)

Nvidia may be leading the charge, as it was one of the first stocks to break higher. Now it is one of the first stocks to break down. The stock’s RSI, after hitting 83, has now broken an uptrend which started on May 19 with an RSI that is clearly trending lower. Could the shares fall back to $650 very easily, based on technical and fundamentals.


Finally, who can forget the ARKK (ETF). Its RSI reached 76 while failing miserably at resistance around $131.

Anyway, I will leave you with that. I will be back as soon as I can.
