Stock Market Brief 1st October 2017

Technically Speaking.
The market continues to display a full bull configuration. The Dow Theory divergence that existed in August, between the Dow Industrials and the Dow Transports, has completely disappeared. In fact the Transport Index, which had been faltering, having had a confirmed price cross-over on its 200 Daily Moving Average, is now technically leading.  This is particularly bullish given the recent rise in oil prices. An additional indicator of current technical strength is the fact that the recent pullbacks in Apple, Amazon and Oracle did no damage to overall market sentiment.


The VIX remains “nailed to the floor” of its trading range, indicating that there is above average complacency in evidence, despite the imminent commencement of Quantitative Tightening and an 80% chance of an interest rate rise in December. Thus Mister Market is expecting a strengthening economy to take these events in its stride. This remains to be seen but that is a discussion for another date, July - September 2018, or thereabouts I reckon. For now the “smart money” is on the long side.

With earnings season beginning this month I expect the market to range trade for 4 weeks or so  but come November, should Trump succeed in moving his tax plans forward with Congress, I anticipate a strong “Elliott Wave Pulse” upward. This will  indicate an early commencement to a “Santa Clause” year-end rally. In this instance fate will favour the brave. Strong bulls markets always over-value, regardless of fundamentals. That is the lesson of financial history. Don’t get left behind due to: “paralysis by analysis”. Please realise markets have not gone parabolic, “yet”.
