Double Bottom?

Please click here for a chart of S&P 500 ETF (SPY) which represents the benchmark stock market index S&P 500 (SPX).

Note the following:

  • Investors have found several reasons coming together today to buy stocks.  These include a potential double bottom, RSI, yields pulling back, no new large currency moves, and a statement by Chicago Fed Charles Evans.
  • The chart shows a potential double bottom is forming.  A double bottom is often a buy signal.  Please note the “?” next to the double bottom on the chart.  The macro picture is not supporting a stock market bottom here, but that does not mean the momo crowd will not run up the market from here as the momo gurus have latched on and proclaimed that a double bottom is in.  
  • The chart shows that RSI made a lower low compared to the June 17 low and has now bounced.  There are different interpretations, but momo gurus are latching on to the positive interpretations and ignoring the negative interpretations.
  • The chart shows that RSI is bouncing after becoming very oversold.  From a technical perspective, this is positive in the very short term.
  • The chart shows the RSI crossing the moving average shown in red.  This is a buy signal in the very short term.
  • The chart shows the volume was heavier on Friday; momo gurus are calling it capitulation.  In The Arora Report analysis, the volume was not heavy enough to be a typical capitulation.  Moreover, for capitulation, you need to look at 10 different factors.  Most of those factors are not present.  For those wanting next level information, consider listening to the podcast titled “The Ten Secrets Of Epic Capitulation Riches.”
  • After an aggressive move up yesterday, yields are pulling back today.  This is bringing more buying into the stock market.
  • There have been no new currency debacles this morning.  This is encouraging market bulls.
  • Chicago Fed President Evans said, “I’m hopeful that inflation is going to come down while wage growth can continue at a level so that households can keep up.”
    •  This is encouraging to investors hoping for a soft landing.
    • Hope is great, and we all hope for a soft landing.  However, prudent investors need to be mindful of history.  As we have shared with you before, since the Fed’s founding in 1913, the Fed has managed a soft landing only 10% of the time. 
  • There is strong buying in cryptos.  This is encouraging the momo crowd to buy speculative stocks.
  • All of the above factors are good to know, but it does not change the following simple facts:
    • Interest rates are still going to go higher.  
    • Wall Street’s earnings estimates are still too high.  
    • For the high interest rates and the inflationary environment, the market valuation is still too high.  
    • Sentiment is too positive for a stock market bottom.  Historically, sentiment becomes very negative at bottoms.

Protection Bands And What To Do Now?

It is important for investors to look ahead and not in the rearview mirror.

Consider continuing to hold existing positions. Based on individual risk preference, consider holding 🔒 in cash or treasury bills or allocated to short-term tactical trades; and short to medium-term hedges of 🔒, and short term hedges of 🔒. This is a good way to protect yourself and participate in the upside at the same time.

You can determine your protection bands by adding cash to hedges.  The high band of the protection is appropriate for those who are older or conservative. The low band of the protection is appropriate for those who are younger or aggressive.  If you do not hedge, the total cash level should be more than stated above but significantly less than cash plus hedges.

It is worth reminding that you cannot take advantage of new upcoming opportunities if you are not holding enough cash.  When adjusting hedge levels, consider adjusting partial stop quantities for stock positions (non ETF); consider using wider stops on remaining quantities and also allowing more room for high beta stocks.  High beta stocks are the ones that move more than the market.
