OPTIMISM OVER NEWS OF IP AND CONSENSUS ON TRADE BUT INVESTORS OUGHT TO BE CAREFUL

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

Twin News From China

There are two pieces of news on China trade deal. First, China is promising more protection for intellectual property. Second, in spite of contradictory media reports about a trade deal, there is some credibility to Gao Lingyun, an expert who is apparently close to the trade talks, stating that the two sides have reached a broad consensus for the phase one agreement. Wall Street is optimistic. How should investors think about these positive reports on trade? Let’s explore with the help of two charts.

The Chart

Please click here for an annotated chart of S&P 500 ETF (SPY).

Please click here for an annotated chart of Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA).

For the sake of transparency, both of these charts were previously published and no changes have been made.

Note the following:

  • For a longer term perspective, the first chart is a monthly chart.
  • For a shorter term perspective, the second chart is a weekly chart.
  • The monthly chart shows that the stock market is extended way above the trend line. This is a negative.
  • The monthly chart shows RSI divergence. In plain English, this means that as the stock market has made new highs, RSI is significantly below the prior high. This is a negative.
  • The weekly chart shows that there is a good set up for Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) to reach the first target of 30,000.
  • RSI on the weekly chart shows that the market is overbought but there is room to run. Often this means a very short term pullback and then a higher high.

What Does It All Mean?

When I gave a “buy” signal on Donald Trump’s election at a time when many were predicting a big stock market drop, it was at first met with incredulity. When I called for a high-probability scenario of the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA hitting 30,000 points in Trump’s first term, I received a ton of hate mail. I have subsequently repeated Dow 30,000 in Trump’s first term several times.

Now, a few years later, Dow 30,000 calls are commonplace. So what’s next for the stock market?

Even though there are higher projections, investors ought to be careful because the market is controlled by the momo (momentum) crowd. The momo crowd is buying simply because the market is going up. The market is going up on performance chase by money managers going into the year-end. However this can quickly end on the slightest shift in momentum as money managers may decide to lock in profits.

There is a mistaken belief that popular large-cap stocks such as Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB) and Microsoft (MSFT) are safe. These stocks carry heavy weighting in indexes. If the market sells off, the selling will first start in futures and ETFs. The large-cap stocks will be sold irrespective of their individual merits. Semiconductor stocks are leading indicators. Consider carefully watching stocks of Intel (INTC), AMD (AMD), Micron (MU) and NVIDIA (NVDA).

Also keep an eye on gold and silver. Gold ETF (GLD), silver ETF (SLV) and precious metal miner ETF (GDX) are seeing selling on the news from China. If there is a reversal in precious metals to the upside, that may be an early sign for more caution on the stock market.
