How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

Euro Plunge, Stocks Bear, Gold Topping and China SSEC Reversal

Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010 May 15, 2010 - 09:41 AM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Stock-Markets Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEuro Drops, Stocks Trim Weekly Gain on European Debt Concern - The euro slid to the lowest since the aftermath of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.’s collapse and stocks tumbled, trimming a weekly rally, on concern the sovereign debt crisis will trigger a breakup of the European currency. Oil fell to a three-month low and U.S. and German bonds rallied.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index declined 1.9 percent at 4 p.m. in New York, paring its weekly gain to 2.3 percent. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index slumped 3.4 percent to finish a 4.8 percent weekly advance. The euro weakened below $1.24 to levels not seen since October 2008.

Geithner Says Europe Will Fix Sovereign-Debt Crisis

U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said he’s confident European policy makers will contain the continent’s sovereign-debt crisis without harming America’s economy or financial markets.

“Europe has the capacity to manage through this,” Geithner said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital With Al Hunt” airing through the weekend. “They’ve committed to fix this problem. And again, I think they have the ability to do that, and I think they will.”

The euro has dropped 3 percent this week since European policy makers announced an almost $1 trillion emergency package to stem the region’s crisis. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, an adviser to President Barack Obama, said yesterday he’s concerned about a potential “disintegration” of the euro.

The VIX had an “inside week.” 

--The VIX had an “inside week” within its Broadening Formation.  It remained above its 10-week moving average, where it found support on Thursday.  The majority of the rally to its close was accomplished on Friday.

The VIX has a slight lag in its performance to the market.  As you may know, the SPX topped on Wednesday.   

The NYSE (weekly) Hi-Lo index had a slight bounce from its low last week.  The percentage of stocks selling above their 50-day moving average climbed from 14.8 to 30 this week. 

The SPX had a triple play retest this week.

--The SPX was repelled by both its BroadeningTop Formation and its Bearish Wedge Formation this week.  The 10-week moving average also played a part in providing resistance to the rally. 

This week’s high marks the top of wave (ii) as the decline resumes through the first week of June.  There may be some volatility through options week as wave i of (iii) finds a low early next week.  We may see a brief rally near options expiration that only shows a fraction of the height and time that we saw in the last rally from the cycle low.

 The NDX also retested its 10-week moving average.

--The NDX has now finished the retest of its 10-week moving average.  The coming week should also be volatile for the NDX, as options week swings underway.  It has not yet completed wave i of (iii), so we may get a bit of volatility as next week potentially opens on the downside.  The original pivot schedule calls for a high on Wednesday, so that will be our primary view.      

Today’s cumulative tick was in far worse shape than the market appeared, so we may see some damage at the open on Monday. 

Gold is nearing the end of its rally.

-- Gold is approaching multiple targets for its final push to new highs.  I don’t know which will claim the prize, but it will be fascinating to see which one snags the top for gold.  I have several advisors who disagree with me on this.  So be it. 

Weekly RSI and MACD are not confirming this new high.  In addition, bullish sentiment for gold is over 97%.   It means that virtually all those interested in gold are “all in.”  I suggest we look at the next pivot on Wednesday for a possible reversal pattern.

Oil is diverging from its ETF.

While USO has a completed pattern to the downside, West Texas Light Crude has not yet finished its first wave down. It appears that $WTIC may finish its pattern on Monday before a potential bounce.  

I have no idea whether oil will follow the same pattern as equities next week, but that would be my top view.  Once below that level, the next level of Model Support lies in the mid-20s.

The Bank Index loses intermediate-term support.

The $BKX rallied to trendline resistance, then dropped below its 10-week moving average.    Options week also comes into play for $BKX, which may cause a higher than normal volatility.  Once options week has passed, it may resume its decline with a vengeance.

The Shanghai Index appears ready for a reversal.

--The Shanghai Index appears to be making a reversal on its daily chart.  Based on the pivots, we may see a recognizable reversal as early as mid-week.  The triangle pattern still appears to be valid, so we continue to monitor it for a reversal to the upside.

My cycles model for the Shanghai Index suggests a rally may be possible that could range from a minimum of 3400 to a high of 4000, should one develop. An inversion of the Shanghai market to the U.S. equities poses an interesting question.  Could it be that some event may trigger a flow of money from the U.S. to China?

$USB needs one more push higher.

-- $USB pulled back last week, but the retracement is now over.  $USB needs one more push higher to complete its pattern.         

An examination of the Head and Shoulders pattern suggests the rally may go to 124.44, its 38.2% retracement.  However, this rally may go as high as the 61.8% retracement at 131.40.  My weekly model is in close agreement, suggesting a top at 131.60.  Don’t underestimate this rally. 

 $USD is impulsing toward its target.

-- $USD appears to be advancing in wave (iii) of 3.  This should be the strongest advance of the entire rally, so enjoy it.    

The top of wave iii may also be a Primary Cycle high for $USD, due in early June.  The head and shoulders target shown on the chart is usually considered a minimum. 

 I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

US Dollar forecast

I don't understand why your now bullish on the dollar at 86 to say it will go to 89 when you were bearish on the dollar a few weeks ago at 82 forecasting it would fall to 78 by mid may ?

-- $USD has made what appears to be a clear impulse to 82.24. It has made a shallow pullback, but the subsequent rally failed to pierce the neckline. A re-examination of the cycles leaves the real possibility of a decline lasting into mid-May. A probable target may be the area near 78.00. An examination of the Euro suggests a likely rally for the same time period. Is there an event awaiting us that could cause the dollar and equities to decline while the Euro rallies? Inquiring minds want to know.

Gold is nearing the end of its rally."

"Gold is nearing the end of its rally."

If I was given a Gold coin every time some one has proclaimed this during this SECULAR BULL MARKET IN GOLD, I'd have more Gold than Fort Knox.

What happened, did the world's out-of-control debt problems suddenly get resolved or do they continue to get worse?

Is the US Dollar backed by Gold now so that the phrase "Cash is King" is true once again?

No, of course not. Those are rhetorical questions with obvious answers, NO and NO!



Which one do you think it will be? Again, rhetorical! The answer is NO!!! Only a complete idiot would suggest otherwise. Got it now???? Then, Get With it!!!
