FEAR/GREED SENTIMENT INDEX – OCTOBER 14, 2018

October 13th, 2018 Comments off

The “Fear/Greed Sentiment Index: What Emotion is Driving the Market Now?” has a current reading of 11 after reaching an even more extreme reading of 5 on Friday. This suggests that the market is within the buying opportunity area.

This indicator has gone down enough but only may need to spend more time in this area before rallying upwards in the coming weeks.

With the internal indicators in “oversold” readings, this suggests that a tradable bottom could occur in this time period – which is within the next two weeks. However, there is always the possibility of one more crash down of obvious “bad news” in order to shake out the weak hands.

WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET STRATEGY SEPTEMBER 23, 2018

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET STRATEGY FOR SEPTEMBER 23, 2018: The market’s rally has continued to push upwards while running into resistance. The current breadth indicators are presently in mid-range (neutral) and suggests that another challenge to new All-Time Highs is likely in the near term. If we should get an “oversold” condition in the coming weeks, it would be worth the risk to trade for another leg of the rally despite the time and extent of this bull run.

Key underlying short-term timing indicators show the following:

***********

THE BOTTOM LINE: The Fear/Greed Index is currently reading 75 or “Extreme Greed.” This doesn’t mean that the market is overbought and time to sell. But it does suggest that it is not the time to buy. That would come on a move to the “Extreme Fear” territory.

WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR SEPTEMBER 14, 2014

September 13th, 2014 Comments off

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR September 14, 2014: The stock market experienced a mild correction that has put it in a slightly oversold condition. With a little more downside, it could set up a short-term rally to challenge the old highs. In the meantime, interest rates have increased to provide the backdrop for a more significant decline in the coming weeks. I’d expect one final narrow-based rally within reach of the old highs before the stock market makes a steep decline into October-November.

Key underlying market indicators show the following:

***********

My advice for traders and investors is let the market set-up for one last rally in order to move completely to the sidelines. The stock market has experienced a long rally for the majority of 2014 and now is the time to prepare for a meaningful correction both in extent and duration.

WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR OCTOBER 27, 2013

October 26th, 2013 Comments off

craps front coverMARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR October 27, 2013: The stock market has been marching upwards for the past 13 trading sessions. During this coming week, the time of this rally will have matched the previous downleg and thus, be ripe for a pullback. I would not be surprised to see a new closing high in the Dow Jones Industrial Average sometime next week which would mark the high of this phase of the rally. But current readings of key breadth indicators show that the general market has already begun its correction. That could mean that the correction will be sharp in terms of price, but short in duration.

Key market indicators show the following:

For now, my advice for traders is to be on the sidelines as the stock market peaks this coming week. Since I don’t see a good way to participate on the downside, I’d prefer to wait until the market becomes oversold and then play the next rally. Retests of highs and lows has not been characteristic of this market. Instead, the stock market goes up until it runs out of time and then retreats into a similar reversal. Playing the extremes in breadth oscillators seems like the best way to go….. especially to the upside. And in this market, playing the downside has been a study in frustration and capital loss.
