Gemäss Definition wird das Kaufsignal generiert, sobald der Ausbruch erfolgt. Aktuell gibt es starke Indizien dafür, dass ein Ausbruch unmittelbar nach oben bevorsteht. Interessant ist dabei, was den Kursverlauf zuvor (steigende Kurse in immer engeren Schwankungen) verursacht hat. Daraus wiederum lässt sich die Wahrscheinlichkeit ableiten, ob es einen Ausbruch zur Oberseite geben wird.
Die Gründe für die Seitwärtsbewegung der SPX respektive S&P-500-Index innerhalb eines völlig intakten Aufwärtstendes seit Anfang der Woche (15. Januar 2018):

Die US-Aktienmärkte werden am Montag auf die aktuelle Entwicklung reagieren. Kommt es über das Wochenende zu einer Einigung zwischen Demokraten, Republikanern und US Präsident Trump, wird es mit sehr hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit einen Ausbruch nach oben geben.
Interessant ist, dass zeitgleich auch die Europäischen Aktienmärkte an einer (exakt) vergleichbaren Stelle stehen:
Über das Wochenende werden synchron in den USA und in Europa zwei wichtige politische Entscheidungen getroffen. Sollten beide postiv ausgehen werden die Aktienmärkte mit neuen All Time Highs in die Woche starten. Den Anfang sollten noch in der Nacht von Sonntag auf Montag die asiatischen Märkte machen. Auch hier zeigt der Nikkei-225-Index eine vergleichbare Situation wie SPX/SPY und DAX:
Das erste Kursziel liegt bei 2.845 Punkten und sollte bei einem break zur up side sehr schnell erreicht werden.
Investor 'fear of missing out' runs wild as record amount of money flows into stocks the last four weeks.
Stock-based mutual funds and ETFs pulled in $58 billion in the past four weeks, the fastest surge ever.
The rush of cash is inspired by a "fear of missing out," says BAML's Michael Hartnett.
The market has been on a tear during the period, with the S&P 500 up 4 percent over the span and off to one of its fastest-ever starts to a calendar year.

BREAKING: McConnell schedules early Monday vote to reopen government
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced plans for a vote at 1 a.m. Monday on a bill to fund the government through Feb. 8. The move appeared designed to force Democrats to either agree to reopen the government without concessions on immigration and other issues, or to vote again for a government shutdown, which Republicans believe will hurt Democrats. The government shut down early Saturday morning after a four-week spending bill failed to gain enough votes to advance in the Senate.
Zitat: "Diverse Black-Hawk-Helis sind schon da, Transportflugzeuge der US-Air-Force ebenso. Am Sonntagmorgen hat nun die nächste Maschine die Schweiz erreicht: Die Lockheed C-5M Galaxy ist um 8.15 Uhr am Flughafen Zürich gelandet."
Government shutdown, day 2:
Signs of progress emerge
As the government shutdown hits its second day, Republicans are getting behind a plan to keep the government funded through Feb. 8.
A group of bipartisan senators is reportedly getting set to take a proposal to end the impasse to party leaders on Sunday.
ome Democrats are ready to give immigration concessions to Republicans, including President Trump's proposed border wall.
House speaker adds pressure on Senate to accept spending bill and end standoff
President Trump wants the Senate to change its rules so a simple majority can pass a deal, and House Speaker Paul Ryan said the House is ready to accept a bill to fund the government through Feb. 8.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “This shutdown is gonna get a lot worse tomorrow.” He has vowed to take up a new spending plan by 1 a.m. Monday and urged Democrats to allow a vote earlier.
Moderate senators race to strike a deal to end government shutdown
Centrist senators racing to strike a deal to end the government shutdown expressed optimism Sunday that they were close to an agreement — but it was unclear whether they would be able to secure the support of leadership to end the impasse.
With the start of the workweek for many federal employees only hours away, a bipartisan group of moderate senators tried for an accord on immigration and federal spending they hoped would pave the way to reopening the government by Monday morning.
After meetings with each other as well as with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), there were no immediate signs of a major breakthrough. McConnell and Schumer also spoke with each other off the Senate floor Sunday afternoon.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), McConnell’s top deputy, sounded a pessimistic note early Sunday evening, predicting the government would remain shut down on Monday. “Right now yeah, yeah I do” think so, he said.
