5 "Tells" that the Stock Markets Are About to Reverse

Stock Market Bottom Pickers Beware of the Dow Jones Bear Market

Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009 Jan 29, 2009 - 04:42 AM GMT

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Stock-Markets Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe had a slow start to the week with prices drifting sideways and upward on below average volume. Wednesday the market put in a nice rally with small and mid cap stocks leading the way higher. The chart of the Dow or the DIA exchange traded fund shows the low volume clearly. Most indexes are now trading just below a short term resistance level and Wednesdays rally was on light volume. I don't like to be a bear, low volume rallies are not a bullish sign.


DIA Trading Analysis

Gold and Gold Stocks
Gold and gold stocks continued to pullback today after putting in a reversal candle last Monday. Looks like investors were pulling their money out of precious metals and buying small and mid cap stocks today.

Gold Chart:
Gold is trading at the top of it s range and is currently at the high of the previous bounce which generally causes resistance. Buying at this level carries high risk considering support is down around the $82 level (7% risk from support). Waiting for a proper pullback and reversal is important in keeping risk low.

Gold Trading Signals

Gold Stocks:
Gold stocks have been posting solid gains and out performing the broad market for the past 3 months. Technically they do have some issues now. They are trading below the 200 moving average and have not been able to break above it. Also momentum and stochastic have turned down as well. To top that off, resistance has been tested 3 times in the past month and in most cases that means it's not going to move higher. That being said, gold equity ETF's like XGD.TO, GDX etc… are getting close to a possible buy signal, and with any luck it could be within the next 2-5 days. We need a couple things to fall into our favor before that happens though.

Crude Oil:
Oil is such a hot topic and investment, although I think most people are losing their shirts trying to pick a bottom. Buying at support when risk is very low after a trend line breakout and reversal candle, change in momentum, and everything else for that commodity looks to be in my favor is when I put my money to work. Oil Looks really tempting right here but I don't have a buy signal and I think its about to continue its slide lower in the next few days.

Conclusion:
With volatile times like what we are in now, cash is a safe position to be in. Only when the stars align with a proper setup with risk under 3% for a trade will I take a stab at the markets. I don't want to sound like a broken record but it seems like everyone is bullish on Gold & Oil right now and if that's the case, almost everyone should be long, leaving only one way for it to go, down. We all work way too hard for our money and to toss our money in when things are like a yo-yo is just silly. Patients are a must in times like this.
