Key reversal levels for week of June 9, 2014

Posted by Danny on June 8, 2014

Comments for this week :

* Another strong week for stocks and the Nikkei has finally joined the other markets by turning bullish on the weekly level. All major indexes remain with upside weekly MoM.

* In the daily key levels most markets are still going strong as well. The DAX and the FTSE100 are hesitating a bit near obvious resistance levels, but all markets are showing nice gains for the recent rally.

* In other world markets the Russel 2000 index and Vietnam have turned bullish. This leaves gold stocks and China as the only remaining bear markets in my list.

* As I continue to repeat: go with the flow. There is no point in standing in front of a train. The only indicator that really matters is “price”, all the rest is entertainment designed to scare you out of good positions. Bullish sentiment, VIX, and so on.., are all indicators that continue to get it wrong until they get it right eventually. Keep your eye on the ball, and that is “price”.

* Bonds (TLT) were rejected at their Top1 target at 114.60, and have fallen into declining mode on the daily key levels. If TLT gets a weekly close below 108.53 then bonds will be fully bearish.

* Gold tries to muster some strength. But it’s only another bear market rally unless gold manages to break above its key reversal levels.

* The Euro has stabilized and is close to going into rally mode on the daily level. We still see no clear direction for the Euro.

* Oil price is stable as well. A move towards $110 is in the cards if oil can crack above its Top1 target at $104.

* Our weekly key reversal levels for the 30 Dow stocks are available here. 28 stocks are bullish this week, up from 26 last week. Above 20 is healthy, see : Keeping an eye on the Dow stocks.

Key reversal levels for week of June 2, 2014

Posted by Danny on June 1, 2014

Comments for this week :

* After a strong week in the stock markets we remain with a fully bullish picture and upward weekly MoM for most major indexes. A pullback will start eventually, and stagnating MoM in the daily keys will normally offer us the first clues when the current rally is nearing an end. Right now it says: all clear.

* Just repeating what I said last week: it is always hard to tell how far a move will carry… best is to go with the flow and respond when the situation changes again. Today’s daily key reversal table shows what happens when we go with the flow: all signals profitable (blue), 1-4% profits within days or weeks. There is no need to predict the top, the system will automatically tell us that some kind of top is in when a given market closes below its key reversal level. Why is following trends so hard to do when it appears so simple? A: Our ego wants to forecast, not follow. Ego wants to buck the trend.

* In other world markets there are no major changes this week. I notice that MoM is turning up for the Russell 2000 index. That doesn’t mean the pain is over for the small caps, but it increases the odds that we will get a rebound rally or a sideways period. A weekly close above 1147.64 would put Russell 2000 in the bullish camp again..

* Bonds (TLT) continue to hesitate near their Top1 target at 114.60.

* Gold tried hard, but has finally succumbed and closed below its weekly key level after 14 weeks of trying the upside. We have been telling for months that gold would go the way of the Euro. Both are in weekly bearish mode now. Will it be a short venture, or the start of a lengthy bear move? I don’t know.

* The Euro appears to be fighting back at the 1.36 level and has its daily MoM turn up from rather low -5 level. That offers some short term hope for both the Euro and for gold. But we have to see if they can claw their ways back above their respective daily key levels.

* Oil price is sputtering as well. It was once again rejected at its long standing Top1 target at 104.

* Our weekly key reversal levels for the 30 Dow stocks are available here. 26 stocks are bullish this week, up from 25 last week. Above 20 is healthy, see : Keeping an eye on the Dow stocks. Note: this most simple indicator has been saying “healthy bull market” since the middle of April, when the number of bullish stocks climbed above 20 again. Goes to show that investing doesn’t have to complicated.
