FASTEST GROWTH IN FOUR YEARS BUT DO NOT EXPECT IT TO CONTINUE

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Fastest Growth In Four Years

GDP came at 4.1%.  This is the fastest growth in four years.  However, keep in mind that this is in line with consensus.  As a result there is no big impact on the market.

In our analysis, a big part of this strong number is related to trade issues and inventory building.  This is not likely to continue.  We expect GDP to weaken in the coming quarters.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is buying in the early trade.  The smart money is lightly selling some high beta popular stocks such as AMZN into the strength.  Interestingly the momo crowd is aggressively buying AMZN.

Gold

The  momo crowd is trying to run gold up.  Historically gold runs up on the GDP day.  However rallies are being met with some selling.

There is no smart money buying.

Oil

Oil is running up on a short squeeze.

Technical Patterns

Home builders are tracing an Inside Bar. This is bullish.  ETF of interest is XHB.  Traders may consider ITB.

This is powerful information and many investors use this to enter trades in addition to our official signals.  Here are the three most common uses: 1) Short-term trades in ETFs  2) Decisions to trim or add to long-term positions, and 3) New option trades. These should be used judiciously only in conjunction with macro, fundamental and quantitative indicators.  To learn more please click here.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE REVERSAL IN THIS INDEX DOMINATED BY POPULAR STOCKS

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Reversal

This market is controlled by the momo (momentum) crowd and nothing else seems to matter. Prudent investors should not become complacent and stay alert to the reversal traced on the chart irrespective of the other near term price action.. Let’s examine the chart.

Please click here for an annotated chart of Nasdaq 100 ETF (QQQ). This ETF is dominated by popular stocks such as Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG) (GOOGL) and Netflix (NFLX). Please note the following from the chart:

  • QQQ broke out on good earnings. This is considered positive.
  • The chart shows that QQQ went higher after a gap up opening but then reversed. This is considered negative.
  • The close was not at the low but near the low. This is considered negative.
  • RSI shows a divergence as shown on the chart. This is considered negative.

The sum total of the foregoing is to not be complacent. In the pre-market, when QQQ was hitting highs, we shared with The Arora Report subscribers in the Morning Capsule, made available to them every morning that while the momo crowd was aggressively buying the smart money was lightly selling into the strength. In this case, that was an early warning of a potential reversal.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is lightly buying.  The smart money is inactive.

Gold

Gold is bouncing from the oversold condition.

Oil

Oil is seeing strong buying.

Technical Patterns

Mexican stocks are tracing a Flag. This is bullish.  ETF of interest is EWW.

MOMO IGNORES WEAK PMIS AND WEAK EARNINGS

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Weak PMIs

PMIs coming out of Japan and Europe are weaker than expected.   A PMI is a leading indicator and carries a heavy weight in our timing models.

Poor Earnings

With the exception of GOOG,  major earnings released since the market close yesterday on the average are weaker than expected.  Examples include WHR, MMM and UTX.
