Stock Market Outlook for May 2011

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011 May 02, 2011 - 05:26 AM GMT

By: John_Hampson


Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is positive pressure for stocks into and around the new moon of May 3rd, then negative pressure after that into and around the full moon of May 17th:

Seasonality fits with that, suggesting a positive bias to the first three trading days of this week:

So, expecting gains over the first 3 days of this week I would like to see the below measure reach over the upper grey line into overbought status as a result of that advance:


Such action should also lift indices into overbought RSI readings, at which point I would expect to be able to present sufficient collective evidence for a pause or pullback in stocks, given that Investors Intelligence sentiment is calling for a pullback imminently:

And copper is diverging negatively - copper tends to be a leading indicator:


Plus, the dollar index should complete its exhaustion selling towards 72-71 over the next few sessions:

In summary, I believe all the above means I may be in a position later this week where I am looking to take some stock indices profits off the table.

I previously forecast that stocks would make a new nominal high at the end of April into the beginning of May, followed by a correction over mid-2011:

One of the composite reasons for that is May to September is the seasonally weak period for stocks, reflected here:


And there is a potential Puetz crash window in mid-June. Note that not all Puetz crash windows have worked, but occurences are sufficient to make it worthy of attention:

So are we going to finally see an extended retreat or consolidation for stocks over the mid part of 2011? If so, the first few days of this week could mark an end to a period of bumper gains since mid-2010. Well, should things come to pass this week as outlined above then I will take partial profits on stock index positions in a few days time and leave a core long position, because the growthflation scenario that I previously analysed as currently in play means we could potentially also see this:

Namely, a crawl along the top side of the bullish channel over the next few months, in a continued rhyme with the last cyclical bull. It would be a consolidation of sorts, but one to be long on, not short.

something to consider with puetz windows

the peak in the euro on may 4th for example .

when does the top usually come in ???

in 1929 it was how many days before the new moon ?

in 1987 it was how many days before the new moon ??

then look at the euro ? just a coincidance i suppose

yet puetz also noted the odds as a bit out of whack
