craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR FEBRUARY 5, 2018: The stock market is currently “oversold” in all of the internal indicators. Therefore, the market can hit a short-term bottom as early as Tuesday. And over the past several years, the market has rebounded from similar bottoms without retesting. But what is different now is how far and long the market has advanced in the post-election period. If you want to play for a fast money trade, I’d expect a rally to come in the next 5 trading sessions and likely coincide with a bounce off of the 200-day moving average in the S&P 500.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:


THE BOTTOM LINE: The Fear/Greed Index is currently reading 40 or “Greed.” I would expect the next short-term bottom to occur when this indicator is below a reading of 25 in “Extreme Fear” territory. That could happen in the next few days and be worth the risk for a quick ride up to the old highs. My favorite trading vehicle because of its diversification and low-correlation to interest rates would be the QQQ Exchange Traded Fund in the area of 148-150.
