Green Light For The Fed

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

Smart money is also lightly buying gold and silver.  Smart money buying may be related to taking profits on the short positions established yesterday.

CHINA BREAKTHROUGH AND FED SUBSERVIENT TO TRUMP — HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO

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

China Talks

Stock market futures spiked as soon as the news hit that the U. S. and China will schedule high level talks in October. My opinion does not count but the opinion of someone who is apparently connected to the Chinese government does count. China’s Global Times editor tweeted, “There’s more possibility of a breakthrough between the two sides.”  Let’s explore with the help of a chart.

The Chart

Please click here for an annotated chart of S&P 500 ETF (SPY). Similar conclusions can be reached from charts of Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and Nasdaq 100 ETF (QQQ).  For the sake of complete transparency, this is exactly the same chart that was previously published without any changes.

Note the following:

  • The chart shows a megaphone top pattern.
  • Bears have been making scary predictions saying that this is a bearish pattern and the stock market will fall to the lower trend line. This scenario will cause major losses for buy-and-hold investors who are fully invested.
  • Bulls believe that not only there will be a breakthrough with China, the Fed will be subservient to Trump and aggressively cut rates.
  • If bulls are right, the stock market will break above the rising trend line shown on the chart. This will be a new high for the stock market.

What Does It All Mean?

I have previously written, ‘A megaphone top, when properly formed, can be useful in trading individual securities. However the predictive power for a pattern that is not well formed for the overall stock market is questionable.’ I have also stated that investors ought to be aware of the pattern, but there is no need for dread.

Start with Arora’s Second Law of Investing and Trading: Nobody knows with certainty what is going to happen next in the markets. Bulls believe that a trade deal will occur with China and the Fed will aggressively cut rates. Prudent investors ought to consider an alternate scenario — if there is a trade deal with China, the Fed may not cut interest rates aggressively. If the economy picks up after a trade deal, the Fed may start raising rates again. Under such a scenario gold ETF (GLD), silver ETF (SLV) and precious miner ETF (GDX) will be crushed. Large-cap stocks such as Apple (AAPL), Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG) (GOOGL) and Amazon (AMZN) will move up. Semiconductor stocks such as Intel (INTC), Micron (MU), NVIDIA (NVDA) and AMD (AMD) will be strong performers.

Keep in mind that bulls are not likely to have their cake and eat it too. This is the reason to follow a proven adaptive comprehensive model that has performed well in both bull and bear markets such as ZYX Asset Allocation Model.

ADP

ADP Employment change came at 195K vs. 150K consensus.

Jobless Claims

Jobless Claims came at 217K vs. 215K consensus.

MOMO BUYS STOCKS ON 5% SURGE IN HONG KONG, AGGRESSIVE BUYING IN SILVER

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

Hong Kong Surges

Stocks in Hong Kong surged 5.4% after the extradition bill was withdrawn. This bill had started the protest movement in Hong Kong.

Gold

The momo crowd is buying gold.  Smart money is inactive.

MEGAPHONE TOP PATTERN IN THE STOCK MARKET SOUNDS SCARY BUT NO NEED FOR DREAD

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

Megaphone Top

A megaphone top pattern in the stock market is gaining a lot of publicity often with scary conclusions. Should you sell your stocks based on this pattern? Let’s examine with the help of a chart.

The Chart

Please click here for an annotated chart of S&P 500 ETF (SPY). Similar conclusions can be reached from charts of Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and Nasdaq 100 ETF (QQQ).

Note the following:

  • As shown on the chart, a megaphone pattern is bound by a rising trend line and a falling trend line.
  • A megaphone top pattern usually occurs after a significant rise.
  • The pattern is typically characterized by high volatility.
  • Traditionally this is considered a topping pattern.
  • As shown on the chart, the prospect of the stock market falling to the lower trend line is indeed scary as it will cause major losses for ‘buy and hold’ investors who are fully invested.
  • As shown on the chart, price has not touched the down sloping line many times. This indicates that there is a potential of a positive resolution. In plain English, an upside breakout has a fair probability.
  • A megaphone top, when properly formed, can be useful in trading individual securities. However the predictive power for a pattern that is not well formed for the overall stock market is questionable.

What Does It Mean?

Investors ought to be aware of the pattern but there is no need for dread. Investors ought to keep the following in the forefront.

  • Follow a proven adaptive comprehensive model that has performed well in both bull and bear markets. An example is ZYX Asset Allocation Model with inputs in 10 categories.
  • The stock market is entering a period of negative seasonality. However this presents opportunities for investors who are holding enough cash and hedges. The Arora Report provides precise levels of cash and hedges to hold under these market conditions.
  • Apple (AAPL) stock is in the cross hairs of the trade war. Keep a close eye on it.
  • Keep a close eye on big cap tech stocks that do not do material business in China. Examples include Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN) and Google (GOOG) (GOOGL).
  • Semiconductor stocks are often a leading indicator. Keep a close eye on the stocks of Intel (INTC), AMD (AMD), Micron (MU) and NVIDIA (NVDA).

Markets

Our very, very short-term early stock market indicator is negative but positive comments that are just coming from China have the potential to reverse this indicator.  This indicator, with a great track record, is popular among long term investors to stay in tune with the market and among short term traders to independently undertake quick trades.
