Buy the dip, or sell the rip?

Preface: Explaining our market timing modelsWe maintain several market timing models, each with differing time horizons. The “Ultimate Market Timing Model” is a long-term market timing model based on the research outlined in our post, Building the ultimate market timing model. This model tends to generate only a handful of signals each decade. The Trend Asset Allocation Model is an asset allocation model which applies trend following principles based on the inputs of global stock and...

Looking through the FOMC meeting noise

Mid-week market update: It is always to discern short-term market direction on the day of an FOMC meeting, but a number of trends have developed that can support a short-term risk-on tone. The most notable is the possible change in leadership. For quite some time, the trends of US over global stocks, growth over value, and large caps over small caps have been the leadership in the past bull market. I am starting to see signs of possible reversals.  In the past, changes in market...

Why this volatility isn’t unprecedented

I have heard comments from veteran technical analysts who have become bewildered by the market’s action. The word “unprecedented” is often used. I beg to differ. The violence of the sell-off, and subsequent rebound is not an unprecedented event. Recall the NASDAQ top of 2000. The NASDAQ 100 fell -39.8% from its March 2000 high, and rebounded 40.1% to its 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level in just four months. The index proceeded to lose -49.7% in that year, and ultimately -80.8% at the 2002...

Don’t forget about the recession

Mid-week market update: Back on March 9, 2020, which seems like a lifetime ago, I declared a recession (see OK, I’m calling it). The call was based on the combination of a coronavirus epidemic in China that disrupted supply chains that began to spread to other countries, and tanking oil prices due to a Saudi-Russia price war. Since then, stock prices cratered, and recovered to stage a strong rally on the back of fiscal and monetary stimulus. During this rally, what the market seems to have...

For traders: 3 bullish, and 1 cautionary signs

The following note is addressed to short-term traders with time horizons of a week or less. I would like to highlight some three bullish, and one cautionary data points. First, the latest update of the Citi Panic/Euphoria Model is solidly in panic territory. This is contrarian bullish, but recognize that the bullish call is based on an intermediate term time horizon.  There is an encouraging sign for short-term traders in this model. Luke Kawa pointed out that sentiment had turned...

The makings of a primary low

Mid-week market update: Did the Economist do it again with another contrarian magazine cover indicator? At the top of the market, their issue cover was entitled “Big tech’s $2trn bull run”. Last weekend, their cover featured a “closed” sign on the earth. The market staged an upside breakout through a falling trend line yesterday, and the upside held today. Notwithstanding the Bernie Sanders induced last hour weakness, it managed to put together two green days in a row, which has not...
