WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET STRATEGY JULY 12, 2020

July 12th, 2020 Comments off

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR JULY 12, 2020: The stock market is near the top of its trading range. After a large gap down last month, the market has held its own for a few weeks now. The question is whether the market will fill that gap soon or head down from here. In any case, it does not appear that a new All-Time High is likely or if it does reach a new high – that will mark the end of the rally since March 23rd.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:

***********

THE BOTTOM LINE: The stock market’s internal indicators are reading “neutral.” This means that it could go either way from here. The move that I think may happen is a new closing high to fill the June gap, but that high marking the top of this move since March 23rd.

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR JUNE 16, 2020: The stock market made a sharp move downwards on last Thursday and has recovered much of that decline over the last 3 trading days. This sets up the possibility of a Classic Dow Theory and Granville Non-Confirmation sell signal on the next closing high in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. This new unconfirmed high could mark the end of this powerul rally since the March 26th bottom.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:

***********

THE BOTTOM LINE: The stock market is setting itself up for a possible sell signal on the next closing high in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. That new high would be unconfirmed by the majority of other indicators and particularly the Dow Jones Transportation Average which would need to rally substantially in the next few days. Note: The next closing high may even have one or two additional days to the upside with each day being progressively weaker and more selective.

WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET STRATEGY MAY 7, 2020

May 7th, 2020 Comments off

STOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR MAY 7, 2020: The stock market has been hovering in a tight trading range for the last couple of weeks. During this time, a few of the internal oscillators have come down to the “oversold” range. That brings the possibility of a short-term bottom in 2 to 3 trading days if the trend continues down. But be careful of a potential crash, too.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:

***********

THE BOTTOM LINE: The stock market is approaching a possible short-term buying opportunity as the internal indicators move down to oversold readings. But a trader must be careful not to jump the gun since there could be a downside break with momentum or a possible mini-crash.

WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET STRATEGY APRIL 11, 2020

April 11th, 2020 Comments off

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR APRIL 11, 2020: Last week,the stock market said “no” to the idea of an immediate retest of the previous lows that so many were expecting. Instead, it went straight up in the face of bad news where it now sits at the halfway point of the entire previous decline. With the internal indicators just below “overbought” levels, one could expect a few more days of strength before the top of this rally can be expected.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:

***********

THE BOTTOM LINE: The stock market may have a few more days of strength before it corrects this rally phase. It is anyone’s guess whether the market will decline or back and fill. But the stage can be set for an extended rally where the majority missed out at the bottom, the fear of missing out kicks in, and the market climbs the proverbial “wall of worry.”

WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET STRATEGY APRIL 2, 2020

April 1st, 2020 Comments off

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR APRIL 2, 2020: The stock market made an internal bottom on March 23rd and rallied until March 30th. In the process of rallying, the general market became overbought and now is trending lower. It will likely take 3-5 trading days from here in order to become oversold. That means that a successful retest of the lows could occur early next week and be worth playing to the upside. But be careful……. let the oscillators become oversold and the volume to lighten up.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:

***********

THE BOTTOM LINE: The stock market made an internal low, bounced and is now in the process of retesting its March 23rd low. If a new closing low in the Dow Jones Industrial Average occurs without the majority of other major internal technical indicators confirming that action, we could be in store for a tradable bottom. Of course, this would likely occur in the face of obvious bad news. And as famed market technician, Walter Deemer, famously said, “When the time comes to buy, you won’t want to.”

WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET STRATEGY JULY 14, 2018

July 14th, 2018 Comments off

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR JULY 14, 2018:  The market presented a tricky, short-term trading opportunity on July 3rd. It came from a semi-oversold condition which suggests that the rally will not be strong. So far, it appears as if the market can still go in either direction with the same degree of certainty. This is a time to be on the sidelines waiting for the next opportunity to set up. The Volatility Indicator will have to traverse across its oscillator from “overbought” to “oversold” which will probably take over a week to happen.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:

***********

THE BOTTOM LINE: The Fear/Greed Index is currently reading 47 or “neutral.” I’m still awaiting for a quick move into the “Extremely Fear” area in order to feel like the conditions are ripe for a more sustainable rally. So, we continue to wait for a better trading opportunity to the upside.

FEAR/GREED SENTIMENT INDEX – DECEMBER 22, 2016

December 22nd, 2016 Comments off

Today’s  “Fear/Greed Sentiment Index” reading has moved from “Extreme Greed” to “Greed” as of this week. Any return to new highs by the Major Indices will most likely move the needle back into the “Extreme Greed” territory. However, this second return to “Extreme Greed” territory will most likely signal the final rally of this move. Expect the first weeks of January to be tricky and counter-intuitive.

FEAR/GREED SENTIMENT INDEX – DECEMBER 10, 2016

December 10th, 2016 Comments off

fear-and-greed-december-9Last week’s stock market strategy report said that the general market was surprisingly “oversold” and ready for an extension of the post-election rally. We certainly got that rally and more with the “Fear/Greed Sentiment Index” pushing into the “Extreme Greed” range for all 5 days. I would still expect a few days with readings over 90 before this rally has exhausted itself. But this is still no place to be going long and only the pros should consider heavy betting on the downside. If you’re inclined to trade, this may be a time to step aside and let the market zig-zag higher with non-confirmations or zig-zag lower into another short-term oversold condition. Either of these scenarios appears to be more than a week away. So stay on the sidelines and let the market set itself up for the next trading opportunity.

WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET STRATEGY – DECEMBER 4, 2016

December 3rd, 2016 Comments off

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR DECEMBER 4, 2016: The stock market has been correcting its move from the election lows over the past several days. With the majority of internal breadth indicators at “oversold” readings, a short-term rally should begin now. This final rally should mark the end of the big move from February’s low. Look for this rally to be lead by the oil stocks and unconfirmed by the leading technology stocks which typically signals the end of a major move.

Key underlying short-term market indicators show the following:

***********

THE BOTTOM LINE: The Fear/Greed Index is currently reading “Greed” after a short stint in the “Extreme Greed” territory. If we get a rally from right here, the new readings should mostly be in the “Extreme Greed” area and signal a time to get out of the market for the intermediate term. Expect a decline after this next rally to last two to three months and probably retract all of the “Trump Rally” and possibly more. But for now, look for one more short-term rally with several non-confirmations to finish this major move from the February lows.

FEAR/GREED SENTIMENT INDEX – NOVEMBER 27, 2016

November 27th, 2016 Comments off

fear-greed-nov-26This indicator is labeled as being in the “Greed” zone right now.  Ideal buying opportunities have only occurred when the general market has been in the “Extreme Fear” zone. Conversely, optimal selling opportunities tend to occur when the general market has been in the “Extreme Greed” zone. This suggests that the market needs a little more time in order to generate greater greed in order to sell. So don’t be surprised if the market continues to zig-zag its way to higher highs. With the strength of this move, the market can stay in the “Extreme Greed” area for over  a week as well.
