WALL STREET CRAPS MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR MARCH 9, 2013

March 9th, 2013

MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR MARCH 9, 2013: The stock market hit consecutive new highs during the last 6 trading sessions. This is a classic example of letting a powerful move run its course and resisting the urge to short. The upside momentum has probably peaked at this time, but after a short correction, I’d expect at least one more overshoot rally to a new closing Dow high. In order for that scenario to pan out, we first need a sharp and broad correction lasting a week to 10 days. Then one final narrow advance up to a new high which is not confirmed by breadth and other broad-based averages.

Key market indicators show the following:

With many key breadth indicators at or near sell signal levels, I would be looking for a correction to begin on Monday. This will be the first leg down with most likely a retest of Friday’s highs in one to two weeks. Since the “Wall Street Craps Method” discourages both leverage and shorting the market, the best thing to do is remain on the sidelines and let the market correct. Then look for either a short-term upside opportunity in the general market or a trade in the Long Treasury Bond ETF (TLT).

Remember that the sentiment indicators show that market participants are still neutral. This is not a sign of a major top. So a correction here would give nimble traders and investors a chance to ride this market up when the rally resumes.
