REBOUND, TAKE MORE PROFITS ON HEDGES

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

Rebound

Stock rebound started after a big down push in the late afternoon.  The consensus thinking among traders is that the big down push took out the weak hands and a bottom has formed.  In our analysis, probability is only about 60% that the traders are right.

Futures started climbing in after hours.  There was a rebound in Asia leading to a rebound in Europe and now the strength is coming into the U. S. market.

Take Partial Profits On Hedges

There are significant profits on hedges now.  Consider taking more partial profits.  Please see ‘What To Do Now’ section.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo (momentum) crowd is aggressively buying stocks.  The smart money is inactive.

Gold

Gold saw a strong move up yesterday as money moved out of stocks and into gold.  The move was exaggerated because of short covering.  This morning in the early trade gold is giving up some of its gains as the money is moving back into stocks.

Oil

Oil is rebounding along with stocks.

Marijuana

The momo crowd is very aggressively buying marijuana stocks this morning.  Smart money is selling into the strength.

Smart Money Call On Stocks Proven Spot On — How To Avoid Losing Money In The Stock Market

Smart money call in advance about market drop in October has now proven spot on.

The Arora Report subscribers’ long portfolios have been 41 – 61% protected in advance plus further protection has been gained through underweighting of high beta stocks and ETFs as well as short positions. There are three key questions for investors now: how to avoid losses in the stock market, where is the support and is the market oversold? Let’s explore with the help of two charts.

Two charts

Please click here for the chart of money flows in 11 popular tech stocks. Tech stocks have been the market leaders. Therefore it makes sense to pay the most attention to tech stocks. For the sake of complete transparency, this chart is exactly the same without any changes that was first provided to the subscribers to The Arora Report on September 25th when the market was flying high.

Please click here for the annotated chart of S&P 500 ETF (SPY). Similar conclusions can be drawn from the charts of Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), Nasdaq 100 ETF (QQQ) and small cap ETF (IWM). Please note the following from the charts:

  • The chart shows that The Arora Report added short term hedges on September 7th. Now those hedges have not only added protection but they are profitable. We are beginning to book profits on those hedges now.
  • The chart shows the Arora call on fear of October based on smart money flows on September 25th.
  • The chart shows the support zone. As of this writing, the market is right at the top band of the support zone. The most likely scenario is for the market to bounce from the support zone.
  • RSI shows that the market is oversold. This indicates that the market should bounce. Perhaps after a deeper excursion into the support zone.

How to avoid losses in the stock market

The Arora Report subscribers came to the market drop well protected. Here are some of the things we had done.

  • We held 21 – 31% cash.
  • We held medium term hedges of 10 – 15%.
  • We held short term hedges of 10 – 15%.
  • We underweighted high beta stocks and ETFs are being crushed. At this time all of our long portfolios are drastically underweight in high beta stocks and ETFs. For this reason in addition to the protection from holding cash and hedges, our subscribers are being spared the pain that many are experiencing because most investors (NOT The Arora Report investors) are overweight high beta. The FAANG stocks Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG) (GOOGL) are high beta stocks. Amazon and Netflix tend to have the highest beta among these stocks. Other popular tech stocks such as Square (SQ), AMD (AMD), Micron (MU) and NVIDIA (NVDA) are examples of high beta stocks.
  • We hold select short positions. Short positions provide gains when the market goes down.
  • We hold an inverse ETF that selectively short sells highly touted stocks. This ETF goes up when the highly touted stocks fall.

We update daily recommended cash levels and hedges. As an example after the fall, we are taking profits on hedges.

The foregoing provides a road map for all investors to avoid stock market losses with real examples and real numbers given in advance.

Gold

Gold is seeing significant buying as a hedge against stock market fall.

Oil

Oil is being sold as hurricane fears ease.

Marijuana

The momo crowd continues to aggressively buy marijuana stocks.  Smart money is selling marijuana stocks.

Markets

Our very, very short-term early stock market indicator is neutral but can swing either way in a volatile manner.

The dollar is ticking down.

MOMO SELLS HIGH BETA STOCKS, EARNINGS AHEAD AND CHINA’S WEAPON APPROACHES KEY LEVEL

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

Earnings Season

Earnings season is about to start. There have not been many preannouncements and that is good news for investors who are long.

China’s Weapon

The big weapon China has against the U. S. is to weaken its currency.  By weakening its currency, China can easily negate tariffs that Trump has imposed.  There are increasing signs that China’s yuan  may weaken. Seven yuan to the dollar is a key level.

It is important for investors to keep an eye on Chinese currency as it may ultimately have major repercussions for U. S. stocks.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is aggressively selling high beta stocks.  The smart money is inactive.

High beta stocks are the stocks that move more than the market.  Investors love them when they are going up and panic when they are going down.  Investors simply need to understand that when they invest in high beta stocks, these stocks can move a lot in either direction.

Gold

Trading in gold is listless.

Oil

Oil and natural gas are seeing a lot of buying as many rigs are being shut down due to the hurricane in the Gulf.

Marijuana

Positive sentiment continues.  ACBFF will list on NYSE before the end of the month.  And IGC has filed a patent application for treatment of fatigue.

SENTIMENT IN U. S. STOCKS DAMPENS ON SLUMP IN CHINA AND ITALY, MONEY FLOWS INTO BRAZIL

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

Interconnected Markets

Markets across the world are connected.  Foreign markets often have significant effect on U. S. stocks.  The is the case today.

In China, Shanghai Composite fell 3.7%.

In Italy, MIB has fallen 2.5%.

Slump in China and Italy is dampening the sentiment in U. S. stocks in the early trade.

Money Flowing Into Brazil

Money is flowing into Brazil.  Investors love Jair Bolsonaro.  Bolsonaro is a retired Army captain who defends Brazil’s past dictatorship and has made derogatory comments about women and gays.  In election results, Bolsonaro took a commanding lead.  The probability is high that he will win the run off election to become Brazil’s president. Investors love him because he is a right wing politician and advocates investor friendly policies.

We will do a separate post on ZYX Emerging about a buy signal on Brazil.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is aggressively selling in the early trade.  The smart money is inactive.

Notice the pattern — smart money is often a seller on strong up days and often a buyer on strong down days.  We encourage our subscribers to adopt the same tactic.
