craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR DECEMBER 9, 2018: The stock market has shown tremendous volatility this past week. Since Black Friday after Thanksgiving, the market has gone up 6 days followed by sharp declines for the last 3 days. One might expect that the market may find a short-term bottom either Tuesday or Wednesday based on time symmetry. And based on the internal indicators listed below, a bottom will also require 2 to 4 more days of decline before reaching oversold readings.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:

THE BOTTOM LINE: The Fear/Greed Index is currently reading 11 or “Extreme Fear.” The sentiment is certainly negative as this indicator has remained in the negative territory for a couple of months now. The trading environment is very tricky and will punish anyone who is on the wrong side of the market. If you have the temperament to trade, you’ll find lots of opportunities for some fast money. But for most people, this is a market to avoid until it calms down and shows more signs of capitulation. The “blood” is not quite “on the street” but it’s getting there. Be careful out there!

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR DECEMBER 1, 2018: The stock market has gone straight up since its bottom on Black Friday. That day was marked by a new closing low that was not confirmed by the majority of breadth and momentum indicators. This is a classic “Granville Buy Signal” named for the infamous stock market analyst of the period from 1977 to 1983. From this point forward, after the strongest one week rally in stock market history, one could expect that the market to continue going higher in a zig-zag pattern until the end of the year. If you missed this last opportunity, you’ll have to buy on any short-term oversold conditions.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:

***********

THE BOTTOM LINE: The Fear/Greed Index is currently reading 22 or “Extreme Fear.” It should be in the “neutral” zone shortly with the continued rally in the stock market. Use any short-term oversold readings as a place to add to long positions through the end of the year. It looks like a “Santa Claus Rally” is in the cards for this year.
