The Real Secret for Successful Trading

Russell Has Gone Up 7 Weeks in a Row. EXTREMELY Bullish for Stocks

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018 Jun 18, 2018 - 05:41 PM GMT

Last week I published a study demonstrating what happens to the stock market when the Russell 2000 (small caps) index goes up 6 weeks in a row. The Russell has extended that streak to 7 weeks in a row.


Here’s what happens next to the S&P 500 when the Russell 2000 goes up 7 weeks in a row (for the first time in half a year).

Click here to download the data in Excel.

Notice how the U.S. stock market’s medium-long term returns are EXTREMELY BULLISH. The S&P goes every single time on a 6 month and 1 year forward basis. The median return in 1 year is 15.5%!

Here are the historical cases in detail.

October 14, 2013 and February 11, 2013

The stock market surged after the Russell 2000 went up 7 weeks in a row.

May 26, 2003

The stock market surged after the Russell 2000 went up 7 weeks in a row.

May 10, 1999

The stock market (S&P 500) rallied another 9 months after the Russell went up 7 weeks in a row.

September 9, 1996 and June 19, 1995 and September 5, 1994

The stock market soared after each time the Russell went up 7 weeks in a row.

November 23, 1992 and February 25, 1991

The stock market soared after each time the Russell went up 7 weeks in a row.

January 9, 1989

The S&P 500 rallied another 1.5 years before starting a “significant correction” (which the Medium-Long Term Model predicted).

Conclusion

This study suggests that the stock market has a very high probability of going higher over the next 6 months and 1 year.

The Russell going up 7 weeks in a row is a sign of extreme strength. Extreme strength only happens during bull markets – it doesn’t happen during bear markets (i.e. this isn’t a bear market rally).
