WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET OBSERVATIONS – MAY 31, 2015

May 31st, 2015

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR May 25, 2015: The stock market remains within striking distance of its all-time highs. The recent period of consolidation and decline has moved breadth indicators closer to “oversold” readings. In fact, the daily TRIN readings have been on the “sell” side for 12 out of the last 13 trading sessions. This sets up a possible buying opportunity in the near term if the market can continue its decline for the next 5-7 trading sessions. Look for “obvious bad news” to provide the necessary cover for entering the market to go long.

Key underlying market indicators show the following:

ADVICE TO TRADERS AND INVESTORS: If the market continues its decline in the next week to 10 days, we could be presented with a short-term buying opportunity. Since this could result in another “V-Shaped Bottom,” you’ll need to have some positions in place before the tide turns. This means that you’ll need to divide up your capital and wade into the market waters in gradual increments while trying to catch the proverbial “falling knife.”

Your best vehicles will probably be broad-based Exchange-Trade Funds such as the SPY, DIA, and QQQ. For more speculative accounts, the SSO and QLD may provide extra leverage for the initial thrust out of the oversold condition. But be careful here, stay nimble, and don’t get too greedy. The next rally from here may only turn out to be a consolidation period before a 2nd nasty leg down starts.
