UK General Election Forecast 2019

The Macroeconomic Picture And The Stock Market, Massive Rally Wipes Out Losses

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011 Jul 07, 2011 - 03:56 AM GMT

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA massive stock market rally has wiped out a month's losses in a week, and is nicely represented by the below straight up move in % stocks above their 50MA from oversold to approaching overbought.

Whilst Nymo and some other short term indicators are calling for a pullback, the majority of indicators that I follow still have room for more upside. Furthermore, the momentum and breadth (shown below) of the rally suggest the first pullback should be a buy.

We are currently in a little window of positive seasonality that should give way to some downside into and around the full moon of July 15th. Here is the updated geomagnetism forecast which shows the possibility of some negative pressure into July 8th, but overall a fairly tame forecast for the next couple of weeks which should be supportive of the markets.

There is a also a busy news calendar that should influence market movement, starting today with a forecast ECB rate rise, and US jobs data today and tomorrow. US earnings season begins again on Monday with Alcoa, and the general expectation is for robust earnings again, further emphasising the dichotomy between the corporate sector and the wider economy. We will probably have to wait until the following week (w/c 18th July) however to get enough key reports through to understand if earnings are likely to exceed or disappoint this time, and the market's response.

In summary, I believe the market may yet edge a little higher to more overbought, before pulling back into and around the full moon of July 15th (and I have begun to take some long profits for this). But I believe the momentum and breadth suggest we are going to ultimately reach for a new high (and I shall retain the bulk of long positions for this).

Looking at the bigger picture, the Bull Market Sustainability Index could not be more positive looking out upto 12 months.

The Citigroup Economic Surprise Index also suggests double digit equity returns over the next 12 months, based on history.

Treasury yields, money supply and money velocity, and presidential cycle seasonality are all supportive of cyclical bull continuation currently, and the Boomberg Financial Conditions Index has jumped away from danger.

In addition, by solar cycles we are in a historic period of growth and inflation, rising up to the solar maximum of 2013. There has been no recession in comparable periods for the last 80 years in the US.

So where are the current risks?

As previously noted, the Yield Curve is inverted in Brazil and close in India. Other countries are trending towards that situation, although many are some way off and we may yet see them change trend. Japan's economy appears to have bounced and we have seen similar bounces in manufacturing readings. However, Chris Puplava calls on relative sector performance history to suggest the bounce may be short lived.

Global leading indicators remain positive but are trending down. Like the yield curves we could now go on to see a trend change, but as yet we do not. ECRI's latest reading for the US economy is shown below.

Inflation remains a negative. Historically, 4% official inflation rates and associated overtightening have called an end to cyclical bull markets. US official inflation is around that level again and undoctored stats much higher. However, we are some way from overtightening interest rates, other than in developing countries.

In summary, the weight of evidence points to cyclical bull continuation, but there are some warning flags to keep an eye on. If we do not see improvement in these areas (leading indicators, manufacturing, yield curves) then I would expect a further stock market low in Q3 2011 (and I would likely expect that to be another buying opportunity, as the US Gov/Fed takes action again to shore up the economy in this critical stage of the presidential election cycle).

However, if on the other hand these indicators start to trend positive from here and economic surprises gain positive traction (in line with history, in line with forecasts of some of the main investment banks) then the stock market may not look back, and the June bottom would be the last great buying opportunity of 2011.

Solar Maximum?

"According to Dr Frank Hill, associate director of the US National Solar Observatory’s (NSO) Solar Synoptic Network, evidence from three sources suggest that the sun may be headed for a lengthy period of slowing activity. Hill observes, “If we are right, this could be the last solar maximum we’ll see for a few decades. That would affect everything from space exploration to Earth’s climate.” And the implication of this for agricommodities – if past precedent is anything to go by – is worrying."–-a-new-ice-age/
