Have You Not Yet Learned - Just Buy The Dip! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Avi_Gilburt

One of the main benefits of understanding Elliott Wave analysis is that it places the market into a larger degree objective context from which you can make your major decisions about your investments.

While most analysis is either strongly bullish or strongly bearish for years on end (as I am sure many of you read perma-bears and perma-bulls alike), markets do not work like that. They are not always moving up or always moving down. While the last 5 years have certainly seen some tremendous market gains, there were clear periods of time which chopped traders up before the market continued higher.

What to Expect at a Critical Stock Market Point: End of a Wave 2 Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: EWI


"Most investors are convinced that the bull market never went away."

The great game of Wall Street -- where huge amounts of money are at stake every trading day.

Many speculators play this game by watching for events outside of the stock market that they believe will "trigger" the next big move in prices.

Is a Stock Market Crash Imminent or Does this Stock Market Bull Still Have Legs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

For a long time, we have been stating sharp pull-backs should be viewed through a bullish lens. In this article published in Nov 2017, we stated the following;

Stock Market Study Shows Why You Shouldn’t “Sell in May and Go Away” / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Troy_Bombardia

You’ve probably heard of the saying “sell in May and go away”. This piece of conventional trading “wisdom” states that the stock market is seasonally weak from May to September while it’s seasonally stronger from October to April. Hence you should not own stocks from May to September. From a seasonality perspective, that is only partially true.

Chaos Capitalists Short Countries - How Chanos Got China Wrong / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2018

By: Dan_Steinbock

Since the 1980s, a new generation of chaos capitalists have been undermining the progress of emerging economies. Under the pretext of “efficient markets,” they seek to exploit real or perceived weaknesses.

Recently, hedge funder Jim Chanos appeared on CNNMoney’s Markets Now program that was promoted heavily on the CNN: “Chanos got China right.”

Transportation Stocks Are Not Moving and What It Means / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Pay attention to the price movement of the transportation sector for a clearer picture of the future rally

If you have been reading and following are posts this year then you’ve seen the power of our Advanced Dynamic Learning price modeling system and how well we are able to find key market moves.  On Monday, the markets stalled, providing further evidence of the future breakout move.  The Banking Index was up 0.43%.  The $INDU was off by 0.06% while the ES, NQ and YM were mixed.  The Transportation Index was up 0.40% while the US Dollar is about to break above the $91.00 level on an attempt to move higher.  These moves are telling us that the US economy is about to break higher in an attempt to retest recent highs – just as our ADL predictive price modeling system has been warning.

Stock Market "Oops, They Did It Again" / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: EWI


See "a classic capitulation to a rising trend"

History often repeats. So, one way to make an educated guess about the future is to look at the past.

With that in mind, let me share with you a valuable observation from our market analysts: Overseas investors tend to jump into U.S. stocks near tops, and sell heavily near bottoms. In other words, their market actions usually are a contrarian indicator.

Stocks and Bonds, This is Not a Market / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Raul_I_Meijer

“[Price discovery] is the process of determining the price of an asset in the marketplace through the interactions of buyers and sellers”, says Wikipedia. Perhaps not a perfect definition, but it’ll do. They add: “The futures and options market serve all important functions of price discovery.”

What follows from this is that markets need price discovery as much as price discovery needs markets. They are two sides of the same coin. Markets are the mechanism that makes price discovery possible, and vice versa. Functioning markets, that is.

Given the interdependence between the two, we must conclude that when there is no price discovery, there are no functioning markets. And a market that doesn’t function is not a market at all. Also, if you don’t have functioning markets, you have no investors. Who’s going to spend money purchasing things they can’t determine the value of? (I know: oh, wait..)

Stock Market Predictive Modeling Is Calling For A Continued Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Chris_Vermeulen

We are constantly amazed that our Advanced Dynamic Learning (ADL) price modeling system has been incredibly accurate over the past 7+ months.  Our researchers, at www.TheTechnicalTraders.com, called the early 2018 rally weeks in advance.  We called the resistance levels and top in late January.  We called a February 21~27 market top formation, called the market bottom on March 28, and last week called the market top to the hour and locked in 17.7% trading a simple 3x index ETF.  Today, we are going to further illustrate the power and capabilities of the ADL price modeling system and what we are expecting over the next 7~10+ trading days.

How Long Does it take for a 10%+ Stock Market Correction to Make New Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Troy_Bombardia

The S&P has fallen 11.8% already during this “small correction”. Assuming that the bottom is in already (February 9, 2018 = the bottom), the S&P has rallied for 48 days already. Is this normal? How long does it usually take for a 10%+ “small correction” to reclaim its old highs?

Here are the bottom dates for 10%+ “small corrections”

  1. June 4, 2012
  2. August 16, 2007
  3. February 28, 2000
  4. October 18, 1999
  5. October 28, 1997
  6. April 14, 1997
  7. July 16, 1996
  8. January 30, 1990
  9. September 29, 1986
  10. February 13, 1968
  11. June 29, 1965
  12. October 11, 1955

Stock Market May "Let Go" / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

SPX futures slid down to the daytime low of 2682.75 in late night trading, then ramped up to trendline resistance at 2698.25 before coming back to the flat line as I write. It appears to be range-bound for the moment, until Index Options (institutional-style) expire at 9:20-9:30 am. Retail options expire at the end of the day.

SPX had Waves 1 and 2 yesterday. Wave 3 may be significantly larger than the 35.59 point decline we saw yesterday. There is a good probability that the retail options investors may be “thrown under the bus.”

Overwhelming Evidence Against Near Stock Market Grand Supercycle Top / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Science_Investing

Grand Supercycle in US Equities
The US stock market shows price data all the way back to 1790. It can be fitted into long term cycles, which result into Elliott waves. The popular opinion is that we are approaching the top of a Grand Supercycle trend. It implies that a long and deep correction is ahead of us. Our conclusion is very different to that and we base it on Elliott’s rules and guidelines.

Take a look at stock market behavior in times of war… and peace

Are wars bullish or bearish for stocks?

With the recent news of airstrikes on Syria and a threat of a global war, this question is extremely relevant. But does war really cause stock markets to rise and fall?

Breadth Study Suggests that Stock Market Bottom is Already In / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

Last week we demonstrated a momentum+breadth study which supported the medium term bullish case for the stock market.

Now let’s look at the short term case for the stock market. Is the stock market’s EXACT bottom already in?

The NYSE cumulative Advance-Decline Line (one of the best breadth indicators) just made a new all-time high yesterday while the S&P 500 has yet to make a new high.

Allegory Regarding Investment Decisions Made On Basis Of Government’s Income Statement, Balance Sheet / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2018

By: Raymond_Matison

Webster’s dictionary defines allegory as a story in which people, things or happenings have a symbolic or hidden meaning that can be used effectively in teaching or explaining difficult ideas.  Accordingly, an allegoric story is used here to explain the important difference between a government income statement and balance sheet, and its application for investment decisions in financial markets.

Simplistically, the government’s income statement records all its activity over a specific period of time during which it brings in revenues, disburses some benefits and pays some expenses.   Individual and corporate income taxes provide the lion’s share of those revenues.  When the cost of government and its expenditures are deducted from its revenues the balance is either a surplus or savings, or as has been our experience over the last few decades – there is a budget deficit.  Such deficits have to be financed, and it results in persistent issue and growth of our national debt.  In our allegory the budget deficits will be represented by a not large hole in the hull of a ship, whereas the governmental debt is represented by the accumulated flow of water in the hull of a ship.

The Stock Market “Turn of the Month Effect” Exists in 11 of 11 Countries / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Dimitri_Speck

Dear Investor,

I first discussed the “turn-of-the-month effect” in Seasonal Insights issue 6 of March 21, 2018. The term describes the fact that price gains in the stock market tend to cluster around the turn of the month.

By contrast, the rest of the time around the middle of the month is typically less profitable for investors.

With respect to the US stock market, I also showed how the “turn-of-the-month effect”” evolved over time, when it was particularly pronounced and when it tended to wane.

Stock Market Short Squeeze/Melt-Up We Predicted Started Today / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The US majors are all nearly 1% higher for the day with the NASDAQ up over 2.25%.  Our analysis of the markets was DEAD ON.  We called the 2678 level on the ES as a key resistance level to watch before any breakout to the upside would potentially happen.  We also called this market bottom nearly three weeks ago on March 28, 2018 and we are up over 15% on a position to take advantage of it with our followers.  We have been nailing these market reversals with incredible accuracy all year and we are just getting started with our Advanced Dynamic Learning systems we have developed.

Investor Alert: How to See Through the Fog of War / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2018

By: MoneyMetals

The U.S. fired 105 Tomahawk missiles into Syria on Friday night.

In other times, the salvo would have put Americans on edge over the prospect of war with nuclear-armed Russia. Our former Cold War adversary is actively defending the Syrian regime and warning the U.S. to mind its own affairs.

But, these days not much can command the attention of the complacent public.
