Natural Gas Setup for 32% Move in UGAZ

As we all know a picture says 1000 words, which is one of the reasons why I gravitated to trading using technical analysis. I can look at a chart and in seconds understand what price has done and is likely to do in the near future, without knowing a single thing about the company, index, or commodity. Why spend time reading news, financial statements, and other opinions when you can fast-track the entire process with a chart.

So, let’s just jump into the 30-minute chart of natural gas which shows the regular trading hours 9:30am – 4pm ET.

Natural Gas 30-Min Chart with Oversold and Trend Analysis

This chart could not be any more simple. Green bars and green line mean price is in an uptrend and you should only look to buy oversold dips. We got long a 3x natural gas ETN on May 3rd right near the dead low. After a few weeks, price action and longer term charts started to signal potential weakness, so we closed out the position for a simple 32% profit.

US Majors Flush Out A Major Pivot Low and What’s Next

Closing out a big week in the markets, we see the US markets rotating a bit lower after a number of news events.  Some of these were very positive and others were negative.  The take away from last week can be condensed into the following:

The US Dollar strengthened all week and shot up above $120 near the end of the week

_  Crude Oil tanked on Friday – falling nearly 3% to just below $65.00 ppb

_  EURUSD fell nearly 2% on QE concerns in Europe as well as trade issues that are mounting

_  Silver rotated lower on Friday (-4.5%) as new tariff announcements between the US and China hit

_  US Small Caps held up quite well throughout most of the week ignoring these news events

The NQ closed higher for the week while the ES (flat) and YM (lower) were mixed to lower overall

China appears to have already entered a downward economic cycle and we’ll have to watch to see how deep this move can actually go before getting too far ahead with our analysis.

When we take into consideration the currency and commodity moves last week, there are two things we can assume headed into this week and beyond.

First, the US Dollar strength will create certain levels of havoc for emerging markets and foreign manufacturing firms, yet the strong US dollar will likely act as a magnet for global investors to continue to pile into the US Equity market rally.

Secondly, the downward rotation in Oil and Metals may create some broad economic pressures in foreign markets that could play out over the next few weeks as fantastic opportunities for skilled investors.

Lower Oil prices puts pressure on foreign oil suppliers, foreign currencies and many emerging markets.  The supply glut throughout the world right now is something that will not likely vanish any time soon.  This extended pressure on foreign markets may present a potential for some bigger price moves in ETF and certain global markets over the next few weeks or months.

Gold and Silver, on the other hand, appear to be running what we have termed a “rope-a-dope” pattern.  Our analysis shows the Metals are poised for a bigger upside breakout move – but this move would likely coincide with some bigger news event that creates broader concern in the global markets.  The move high last week started us thinking that this could be a new upside leg forming to create a new near-term price high.  But Friday’s pullback was just enough to neutralize the momentum of the upside move (for now).  We would not be surprised to see another upside move early over the next few weeks as this pullback may be reactionary in nature and not fundamental.

There are so many dynamics at play right now with trade issues, economic fundamentals, Fed/Central Bank moves and commodities moves all rotating in broad ranges.  Our recent analysis has been almost perfect in terms of the Oil moves, the Metals moves and the US Majors price advance.  As of right now, nothing has really changed with our analysis and we believe most of the price swings this week were purely reactionary in nature.

Our continued belief is that the US market is really the only game on the planet with a strong US Dollar and a strong/growing economy.  Oil pricing concerns will likely result in emerging market and currency issues that could continue to drive investment into the US markets.  Gold and Silver will likely continue to play the “rope-a-dope” congestion pattern with a slightly upward price bias until some massive news event sends it skyrocketing higher.  US Blue Chips and Small Caps will likely resume their upward trends quickly by taking out recent price highs and stunning the shorts/top-callers again.  When you get down to the bottom line of these big news weeks, after all the dust settles – most of the time the core economic fundamentals are the real momentum of the markets.  These news events are ripples in price caused by an external force. They go away after a short period of time and the fundamentals kick back in to drive future price moves.

Assuming nothing big hits the news wires to cause any further external events, we believe the US markets will quickly begin to recover their previous trends (higher) and oil will continue to drift lower (to near $60 first, then lower) while Gold and Silver begin to form a new price base for another attempted move higher (again).  World leaders are attempting to do all they can to keep the train on the tracks and are stunned at the growth and success of the US economy/markets.  Their biggest issue is that they may become second or third tier economies in comparison to the US.  All of these dynamics, which are actively playing out right before our eyes, currently are driving capital into the US in an effort to avoid what appears to be a bottomless pit of economic uncertainty in many other nations.  This, we believe, is the core dynamic at play in the global markets and we are watching for any signs that some new contagion may set in to change this dynamic.

Our suggestion is to take advantage of the opportunities that are currently available to skilled traders and try not to be too greedy.  As we learned, recently, from the EURUSD price drop – these events can unfold very quickly and foolish trading can sometimes put you in very risky positions.  We believe it is more suitable for skilled traders to take advantage of larger swing trading opportunities right now and to avoid the high-risk trades.  There will be lots of time for those types of trades when the global economic environment settles down a bit more.

Oil Targeting $58 ppb Before Finding Support

With the G7 meeting concluding and the world about to start reacting to what was said and what was heard, it is time to take a look at the Crude charts with our Advanced Fibonacci price modeling system.

Our research team, at www.TheTechnicalTraders.com, believes Crude will continue to drift lower over the next few weeks testing the $60 ppb level before breaching this support level and ultimately targeting $58 or lower.  Lacking a real resolution to the trade and other global issues, we believe continue global economic pressures will drive oil prices dramatically lower over time – at least through the Summer months.

This Monthly Crude Light chart shows our Advanced Fibonacci price modeling system at work.  As of right now, we see a recent price rotation top (highlighted by the RED DOWN TRIANGLE) near the right edge of price as well as the RED and GREEN Fibonacci projection levels near $69.50.  These projection levels indicate that the $69.50 level is likely resistance.  Notice the BLUE and CYAN Fibonacci projection levels near $58.00 ppb.  The fact that these two levels nearly overlap one another indicates that the $58.00 ppb level is a key price level for current support.  Obviously, the ultimate downside target, near $14.00 ppb, is an extended downside level that could happen – but is not likely till all other levels a breached with downside price activity.

Currently, as long as the $60.00 ppb is not breached, the Monthly Fibonacci price modeling system trend is “Bullish” and a move to below $58.00 would change the trend to “Bearish”.  As we stated, the $60.00 price level is critical going forward on this Monthly chart.

 

This Weekly Crude Light chart paints a shorter-term price picture and clearly highlights the most recent price decline with a clear sell trigger near $69.00.  Take special notice of the Fibonacci upside targets between $54 an $58 near the right side of the chart.  These upside targets, because the price is moving lower from above and has breached the Bearish Price Trigger Level (RED), are now downside target levels.  With no real support between the current price and the $58.00 level, we expect oil to continue to fall to near the $58.00 level before finding some support – possibly as low as $54.00.  Ultimately, if these levels don’t provide sufficient price support, oil prices could fall back to near $45 ppb before finding any real support – a -30% decrease from current price levels.

 

One thing that we find interesting is that the ERY (Energy Bear ETF) has yet to reflect any of this concern.  Yes, we can see some price support near the right edge of this Weekly ERY chart, yet it appears the general market is not factoring in the gap in support below the $58.00 price level – meaning ERY could see a big jump higher on any price breakdown in Crude prices.  How big?  Our research team believes this move could be greater than 70% ROI from current levels if our predictions are correct.  A breakdown from current levels to below $55.00 ppb in Crude would likely cause ERY to rocket above $60.00 per share from the current price levels near $32.50.

 

To be clear, Crude is poised to retest the $60.00 ppb level before attempting to find support near $58.00.  If this support fails, then expect Crude to fall to near $54.00 ppb before finding support.  This move will likely cause ERY to rocket upward to well above $50.00 on a short-term move (possibly higher).

Watch for news this week regarding oil supplies and the G7 aftermath.  We are certain the news cycles will provide some hints as to the future economic cycles and expectations for the Summer months.  We believe the supply glut and current trade issues are causing concerns in trade and transportation activities, thus we believe the downside move in Oil is almost inevitable at the moment.  Great supply, diminishing demand, and global trade/economic concerns will likely push Oil prices back below $55 within the next 30~45 days.

Gold and Silver Setting Up For A Sleeper Breakout

As the world continues to see economic improvements, specifically within the US and major global markets, Gold and Silver are relegated to an after-thought by investors.   Why consider Gold or Silver when the NASDAQ or S&P leaders are rallying 2%+ per week?

Well, the recent G7 meeting and President Trump’s meeting with Kim Jung Un in Singapore may spark a little interest in these shiny metals as they setup a “rope-a-dope breakout” for those not paying attention.

One of the easiest components of Fibonacci price theory is the concept that “price must always attempt to establish new price highs or new price lows within price rotation – ALWAYS”.  For those of you that are familiar with our research, visit www.TheTechnicalTraders.com if you are not, you know that the lack of new price highs indicates a downward trend may have formed.  Conversely, a lack of new price lows indicated an upward price trend may have formed.  With this in mind, let’s take a look at this Monthly Gold chart.

Please notice that the recent price lows, originating near the start of 2016 all the way through current price activities, are continually higher.  Even the current price rotation, near the right edge of the chart, is still higher than the previous low price rotation near the middle of 2017.  Ladies and Gentlemen, we have an uptrend already in place in Gold.  The “rope-a-dope breakout” that we are suggesting is right around the corner is the potential for a $1370 price break that has been setting up since June 2016.

Our proprietary Fibonacci price modeling system is showing us the current price trend is BULLISH and that support is near $1250.  Additionally, the newest Bearish Price Trigger level, near $1124, is a result of extended price rotation and lack of clear price trend (the “rope-a-dope” setup).  This has lulled many metals investors into thinking any price breakout may never happen if the global economy continues to strengthen.

 

Well, we’re here to tell you that this price breakout may be less than 30 days away from now and the key to any potential move will originate in the global fear that may continue to grow as the world’s leading economies continue to spar over trade, economic cooperation and fair opportunities going forward.  Nearly 3 months ago, we authored a detailed research piece on China and the fact that China and SE Asia were entering an economic malaise cycle.  The recent elections in Malaysia may have changed this perspective a bit, but the core economic cycles have not likely changed much.  We believe Gold and Silver are setting up for breakout of the $1370 price level with the potential to rally to near $1430~$1463 within the next 3~5 months – +11.5% or more.

 

Silver, the other shiny metal, is the one investment that many have overlooked and the chart proves why this is the case.  This Monthly Silver chart shows that silver has been trapped in a sideways trend for months.  The price low, set in early 2016, is a critical low point regarding future price analysis.  From this point, we are able to establish price waves, counts and other key factors of future price activities.  Our proprietary Fibonacci price modeling system is showing use that the price of Silver MUST rally above $19.50 to qualify for a new BULLISH price trend.  Currently, the price of Silver is $16.82.  This means the price of Silver MUST rise by more than 16% to establish a new BULLISH trend.  Hmm…

 

Think about that for a minute..  Gold has already shown a Fibonacci Bullish price trend is in place and a breakout is nearly upon us.  Silver is showing a similar setup, but is telling us that price has to move upward by more than 16% to establish a new bullish price trend whereas Gold only needs to move higher by about 8% for the same outcome.  Either way, if Gold moves higher by greater than 8% and Silver moves higher by greater than 16% from current levels) – that is a GREAT TRADE.  The upside potential after that is even better.

The price rotation required to achieve this upside breakout is likely to play out over the next 30~45 days or more.  Remember, we’re calling this a “rope-a-dope breakout” because we believe this will be a sleeper move to the upside.  Gradually climbing over the next 30+ days and gradually building up momentum till a massive upside breakout move takes place.  By then, these lower price levels will be gone and the upside move will already be taking place – catching many traders flat-footed.

 

 

There has been talk that many big players are setting up short positions in the US markets (financials and others). We believe this could be a disaster waiting to unfold should the global markets play out as we expect.  Yes, fear of some economic issues will continue to drive Gold and Silver higher, but we believe the US market is somewhat immune from this debt concern because it is really the only game on the planet to generate returns and opportunities.  Things can change, but for right now, expect Gold and Silver to continue to rotate higher and watch for Silver to start moving at 1.5x or 2.x that of gold as the breakout takes place.  This “rope-a-dope breakout” is setting up to be a fantastic trading opportunity for those able to see it unfolding.

G7, Central Banks, and US Fed Will Drive Stock Prices This Week

After last weeks closing bell for stocks and the early signs of the Capital Market Shift which we mentioned previously was taking place are now clearly evident. We wanted to alert all of our followers that this week could be very dramatic with a number of key events playing into global expectations.

Our research team at Technical Traders Ltd. have been combing through the charts trying to find hints of what may happen and what to expect in terms of price volatility next week.  We know our ADL price modeling system is telling us that certain price weakness will continue in certain sectors and strength in others – but we are searching for the next opportunities for great trades.

One of the key elements of the G7 meeting is the continued communication regarding global participation in key infrastructure projects and national cooperation in regards to economic stability.

Over the past 8+ years, the bulk of the global recovery has been based on the US economic stability and recovery.  US interest rates allowed for a global “carry trade” that supported a large component of the economic bias in foreign countries.  Additionally, the deeply discounted US bonds provided a “fire sale” opportunity for many countries to secure US Treasuries at a time when global central banks were printing cash to support failing economies.  Overall, the economic conditions from 2009 to 2015 were such that every opportunity was provided to the global markets to make it easier to attempt a proper recovery.

Some nations were able to capitalize on this environment while others squandered the opportunity to create future growth, capabilities and new opportunities for success.  Given the current global market environment, we expect some harsh comments to come from the G7 meeting as well as some wishful thinking comments.  Overall, we believe the outcome of the G7 meeting will become a defining moment for the remainder of the year in terms of global economic expectations and forward intent.  It will certainly be interesting to see how these leaders decide to operate within the constructs of the ever-changing global market liabilities to say the least.

Right now, a lot of concern has been directed towards the Emerging Markets and what appears to be a near term market collapse.  Debt spreads and global indexes have been moving in a pattern that clearly illustrates the Central Banks problems in containing the diverse economic conditions throughout the globe.  Infrastructure projects, social/political shifts and currency valuations are complicating matters by creating extended pressures in many global economies recently.  All of this centers around the strength of the US economy and the US dollar as related to expectations and valuations of other foreign economies and currencies.

Almost like a double-edged sword, as the US economy/dollar continues to strengthen, foreign capital will migrate into these US assets because of the inherent protection and gains provided by the strength and growth of these markets.  While at the same time, the exodus of capital from these foreign markets create a vacuum of value/capability that results in a continued decline in asset valuations and more.

Almost like the 1994 Asian Currency Crisis, the more the US economy strengthens, the more pressures the global markets feel as valuations and assets become more risky to investors.  As investors flee this risk, they search for safe returns and value that is found in the US economy/Dollar – driving US equities higher and strengthening the US Dollar.  It is a cycle that will likely continue until some equilibrium point is reached in the future.

The US markets are on a terror rally because global capital is searching and seeking the greatest returns possible – and the only place on the planet, right now, that is offering this type of return is the US economy and the US equities market.  Our recent research shows that the NASDAQ indexes may stall and rotate over the next few months as price valuations have accelerated quite far and because the blue chips are relatively undervalued at the moment.  This means, capital will likely continue to pour into the S&P and DOW heavyweights as this capital shift continues to play out.

The G7 meeting, in Toronto, this week will likely present some interesting outcomes.  Early talk is that the G6 nations (minus the US) may enact some deal that they believe would be suitable for these nations going forward.  Our concern is not the deal or the threat of these nations trying to engage in some deal without the US – far from it.  Our concern is that their wishes may be grandiose and ill-timed given these currency and valuation issues.

Imagine, for a second, the G6 nations engage in some grand scheme to engage in something to spite the USA.  Some plan that seems big and bold and over the top.  Yet, 5 months from now, debt issues plague these nations, currency valuations have destroyed any advantage they may have perceived they had and the member nations are beginning to feel the pressures of their own entrapment.  What then?  The USA to the rescue (again)?

Recently, Ben Bernanke, a Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institute, warned that Donald Trump’s economy was like a Wile E. Coyote going over a cliff.  Everything seems well and fine till the road ends and the cliff begins.  I would like to remind all of our readers that The Brookings Institute does not have a stellar record of predicting much of anything over the past 10+ years.  Take a look at this graph showing the economic expectations and predictions from The Brookings Institute over the past decade or so.  Do these people seem capable of accurately predicting anything regarding the US or global economy?

 

Now, ignoring all of the what-if scenarios that are being presented by different people.  The bottom line is that the next 6+ months are going to be very exciting for traders and investors.  There are huge issues that are unfolding in the global economy right now.  Currency levels are about to be shaken even further and the G6 nations, by the time they complete their high-priced dinners and evening events, will walk out of the G7 meeting staring down a greater global debt/currency/economic beast of their own creation.

SE Asia is in the process or rewriting and resolving issues of the past 10+ years (see Malaysia/Singapore).

 

China is in the midst of a massive debt cycle that is about to play out over the next 18+ months (totaling about 1.8 Trillion Yuan).

The Brasil Bovespa Index has rotated into new BEARISH territory.

 

The Mexican iShares (EWW) ETF is about to break multi-year lows.

 

The Hang Seng Index is setting up a possible topping pattern that could break down given state and corporate debt concerns.

 

The iShares Turkey (EURONEXT) index has already broken to new multi-year lows.

 

The G6 better have some rabbits in their hats that they can magically transform into big bullish projects over the next 12 months or the economic functions that are at play in the world already are likely to steamroll over the top of any news that originates from the G7 meeting.

The US markets are setup for a continued bullish rally with a bit of Summer capital shifts.  Our recent research called the rotation out of the tech-heavy NASDAQ and a renewed capital shift into the S&P and the DOW leaders.  This rotation is likely to continue for many weeks or months as global investors realize the earnings capabilities and dividends values within the US blue chips are of far greater long term value than the risks associated with technology and bio-tech firms.  Because of this, we believe the S&P and DOW/Transports are setting up for a massive price rally to break recent all-time market highs.

Here is a Daily chart of the YM futures contract showing the recent price breakout and rally.  Our expectation is that 26,000 will be breached within 30 days or so and that a large capital shift will drive a continued advance through the end of 2018 – possibly further.

 

Here is a Daily $TRANS chart showing a similar bullish move.  Although the Transportation Index has not broken to new highs yet, we believe this upside move is just beginning and we believe the continued improvements in the US economy will drive the Transportation index to near 11,450 or higher before the end of this year.

 

Our opinion continues to support the hypothesis that the US markets are the only game on the planet (at the moment) and that a great capital shift is underway in terms of investment in, purchases of and generally opportunistic investment opportunities for US equities and markets going forward.  Until something changes where the US dollar strength, foreign economic weakness and foreign debt cycles are abated or resolved, we believe the great capital shift that we have been warning of will continue which will put continued pressures on certain foreign markets and expand debt burdens of at-risk nations over time.

Smart traders will be able to identify these opportunities and capitalize on them.  They will see this shift taking place and take advantage of the opportunities that arise for quick and easy profits.  If you like our research and our understanding of the global markets, be sure to join our premium research and Trade Alert Wealth Building Newsletter.

Russell 2000 Leading The Charge Higher

While the US majors continue to push higher through recent price rotation levels, the IWM (Russell 2000 ETF) is showing investors where strength lies in the markets.  Recently, we issued a research report showing that a massive dynamic shift is beginning to take place in the US market that provides an incredible opportunity for investors.  Now, we have further proof that this shift is well underway and is likely much further along than we initially expected.

The Russell 2000 is one component of the US market that often reacts to market strength and weakness a bit differently than the S&P, DOW or NASDAQ index.  The reason for this is that the Russell 2000 index makes up a broader scope of trading symbols that represent a greater chunk of the total market segment.  The US majors don’t always follow the Russell 2000, but when the Russell 2000 index breaks recent all-time highs on a broad push higher – we need to pay attention.

Investors need to be very aware that most of the market believes the recent Feb 2018 price rotation setup a completed Elliot Wave 5 TOP.  Yet, we believe this analysis is incorrect and we believe the markets are setting up for an extended Wave C or compounded Wave C that will drive market prices much higher over the next few months.  The fact that the IWM (Russell 2000) has breached recent all-time highs and is now pushing into uncharted high price territory is critical to our understanding of the future price moves for the US Majors.

With the Russell 2000 driving upward price action, clearing recent high price peaks and closing May with an incredible upside price move, we look to our advanced price modeling systems to help us understand the potential future price moves.  This next chart shows our Fibonacci predictive price modeling system and clearly shows the “Fib Target Zones” near the right side of this chart.  Current prices are already near these target zone levels – yet they can extend well beyond these levels when price dynamics “expand”.  Therefore, should the upside trend expand as we expect, we believe the upside potential in the IWM to be at least 15~20% higher from these current levels.

 

This SPY chart showing our proprietary Fibonacci predictive price modeling system shows what we believe to be the correct Elliot Wave count and shows “C3” where the current price peak/high price rotation exists.  We believe this rotation is not a completed wave 5 – but a compound wave C that will continue higher to form a full 5 leg wave C move.  If we are correct, this market has at least 15% more to the upside and the S&P and DOW stocks will likely be the big winners in this move.

 

Our recent analysis suggested that a massive capital shift is taking place in the US markets where the NASDAQ may be nearing a temporary price peak and where the S&P and DOW stocks may still have room to run.  This shift indicates that the blue chips and S&P leaders may be the big runners over the summer months.  Currently, Russell 2000 leaders may also benefit from this move given this recent research.

You won’t want to miss the opportunities this move presents and the potentially massive “short squeeze” that is setting up.  Visit our website to learn how we can help you navigate these markets and stay ahead of the markets to create opportunity.  If we are correct, this upside leg will put great pressure on some of the biggest names in the business because they have completely missed this expanded Elliot Wave formation and are shorting the market in the billions.  When this breaks, it could break very hard to the upside.  Join www.TheTechnicalTraders.com today to take this opportunity and turn it into success.

Predictive System Shows Nasdaq May Be Nearing A Top

Our proprietary predictive modeling systems are showing us a core market dynamic that many people are completely unaware of right now.  We are going to show you something in this post that is so valuable that you won’t believe we are sharing it with you.  Why are we doing this you might ask?  Because we want you to think about how different your daily trading routine would be like as a member of Technical Traders Ltd. and how our specialized research and proprietary modeling systems can assist you in staying ahead of the markets.

If you’ve followed any of our previous analysis posts, you already know we called this market bottom as it happened, over 60 days ago.  You also know we’ve been predicting the markets to rally in an attempt to breach the all-time market highs for the past 40+ days.  Now, you are going to learn what the markets are going to do over the next 3~5+ weeks as a dynamic price valuation shift is starting to unfold.  If you want to see what the markets are going to do all the way into early 2019, then join www.TheTechnicalTraders.com and learn how we can help to keep you ahead of these market moves and learn how we can help you find profits every week.

Here we go..

Right now, as we understand it, a number of institutions and professional traders are watching the global markets for any immediate signs this market will rotate lower and potentially crash.  Many institutions are betting that the foreign markets and the US market is overextended and may collapse.  Yet, our proprietary analysis and price modeling systems are showing a completely different picture for the next 6~9+ months.  You are about to learn how and why you want to focus your trading on specific sectors over the next 4~6 months.

Recent price action in the US majors has been a bit lopsided into the tech-heavy NASDAQ.  Because of this, the other US majors have now seen the types of price advances that our predictive modeling systems have predicted.  The NQ has advanced substantially as we believe a unique capital flight is taking place where foreign capital is rushing into the US markets chasing profits and earnings.  The general consensus is that investing in technology firms will provide the best returns.  Well, this may not be the case over the next few months and we believe the real opportunity lies in the Blue Chips and S&P sectors.

This NQ Weekly chart shows that the NASDAQ has nearly rallied to above all-time price high levels and has little more than +1% to go before testing/breaching these levels.  Granted, the move in the NQ has been impressive and we believe the primary factor in this move is the rush of capital entering into the technology and biotech markets that make up the NQ sectors driving this rally.  Our price modeling systems suggest this move is nearly over and the NQ will likely consolidate and rotate over the next 3 months.

This leads us to believe that capital will shift from the technology and biotech-heavy NASDAQ to the other US sectors that have underperformed recently.

This SPY weekly chart shows what we believe is the underlying shift that is taking place.  While the NQ has rallied to near all-time highs, the SPY has just recently begun to advance above recent rotational highs.  With a strong support zone near $255 and all-time highs near $268.60, the SPY has a potential for a +4.5% price rally to reach these recent all-time highs.

This YM chart shows a similar setup to the SPY.  With support near 24,450 and a clear upside sloping price channel, the YM chart shows a potential for a +7~8% upside price move before reaching near all-time highs.

We believe a pricing valuation shift will begin to occur in the US majors over the month of June where the NQ rallies to just above the all-time high levels, stalls and rotates over the Summer months while the S&P and DOW Blue Chips and leaders rally +4~10% over the same time span.  We believe this shift in pricing dynamics will be the result of price valuations/expectation levels in the NQ having outrun true earnings potentials.  Foreign capital has been pouring into the US technology stocks for well over 16 months now.  Much like the 2000 Dot Com bust, this run may be overextended and a pricing shift is likely already started.  The real profits over the next few months will be in the S&P and DOW leaders.

Three Key Elements Will Drive Stocks Higher Into Year End

Last week was a roller-coaster ride for traders and investors.  After a long holiday weekend, traders were greeted with concerns originating in Italy regarding political stability and the potential that any further issues could result in a collapse of the EU.  Even though the risk of this happening was somewhat minor, the US markets tanked near 2% as fear seemed to override common sense.  The rest of this week has been a wild ride of price rotation within a range.  We’ve been reading all types of news and comments regarding all types of “what if” scenarios from analysts and researchers while scratching our heads at some of the comments.

As we stated in our earlier article regarding the Italy political crisis, the one important aspect to trading and investing is to not lose focus on the true perspective and true market fundamentals.  Yes, if you are an intraday trader, these wild price swings can either be great profits or wild losses as you try to swing with these rotational moves.  As a swing traders/investor, though, we care about the overall stability and direction of the markets.  We are willing to ride out some rotation as long as our core analysis is sound and the technical and fundamental basis of our trades is still in place.

In our opinion, there are three things that are core elements of our analysis at the moment and these three things are likely driving the economic future of the US equity markets.

  1. The US Dollar continues to strengthen as the US economy shows solid signs of a broad-based economic increase.
  2. Oil/Energy prices have continued to decline recently, now down nearly 10% from the recent peak, and this decrease relates to supply and demand expectations throughout the end of this year (roughly 4~6 months into the future).
  3. The Transportation Index is pushing higher as stronger economic activity is expected throughout the rest of 2018 and into 2019.

 

These three key elements cross-populate as follows:

  1. The strong US dollar is acting like a magnet for foreign capital investment as the strength of the US dollar in combination with the strength of the US economy/equities markets creates a triple-whammy for foreign capital investments. Not only are foreign investors trying to avoid capital devaluation (currency price devaluation) and debt risks in their own local markets, they are trying to find ways to achieve ROI and stability for their capital investments.  With almost nowhere else to go, the US equities markets and debt markets are pretty much the only place on the planet for this triple-whammy opportunity.
  2. The strong US jobs numbers and robust economic activity, in combination with the past capital market stimulus and lowered interest rates, are creating a fuel heavy economic environment in the US not that President Trump’s deregulation and policies have injected the Oxygen needed to create the “economic combustion” that is driving this current growth. Energy prices are moderate and dropping as a result of the shift in technologies attributed to electric and hybrid transportation enterprises.  All of this, jobs growth, earning growth, economic growth, moderately low interest rates and a true combusting economy, provides for much greater opportunities for an advancing US equities market.
  3. The US equities markets are rotating higher throughout the global weakness and debt concerns while the Transportation index pushes higher as a sign that US investors expect the US economy to continue to grow. Transportations lead the us equities markets by about 4 to 6 months (on average).  Lower oil prices, strong jobs numbers, dynamic opportunities in the US economy and a stronger US dollar drive continued US and foreign investments into the US equities markets and debt markets.

 

As we have stated in earlier research posts regarding “capital migration”, capital (cash) is always seeking the best environments for stability, growth and opportunity in a continual effort to balance risk vs. reward.  Capital is capable of moving across the planet relatively quickly in most cases and is always seeking the best opportunity for ROI and stability while trying to balance unknown risks and devaluation.  Right now, the only games in town are the established economies, the US, Canadian and UK markets.

As you can see in the graph below US investments continue to grow as the best risk/reward for capital.

 

Our opinion is that until something dramatic changes this current global economic environment and risk unknown, capital will continue to rush into the US markets even if the US dollar continues to climb or oil continues to fall.  The only thing that can change this equation is the one key factor in understanding risk vs. reward – when does the opportunity for reward outweigh the risk of complete failure by applying capital into any other foreign or non-established market environment?  When investors believe the reward of moving capital out of the US equity markets in search of new opportunities or advantageous risk/reward setups in foreign markets exists, that is when we’ll see a change in investment dynamics resulting in more downside pricing pressure in the US markets – and we don’t believe that will happen within the immediate 4~6+ month span.

Pay attention to our most recent research as we have been dead-on in terms of calling these market swings.  The NQ chart, below, shows how the tech heavy NASDAQ is leading the breakout while the YM and ES markets lag a bit.  We believe all of these US majors are in the process of breaking to new all-time price highs and as the foreign market turmoil slowly unfolds, we may see some moderate price rotation.  Yet we believe the global economic dynamics that are currently in place create a very opportunistic, rich, green opportunity for continued capital infusion into the US equity markets and a continued moderate advance of the US Dollar.

 

Remember, there is now over $12 trillion in capital that has been created and introduced into the global markets over the past 10+ years.  All of this capital is searching for projects and investments to develop suitable ROI and gains.  Where do you think this capital is going to go for the most stable, most capable and most successful ROI available on the planet?  Think about that for a minute – where else would you consider putting capital to invest for safe and consistent returns right now?

This weekend could prompt a massive upside price breakout early next week on continued positive economic news or lack of any foreign market concerns.  The bias of the US equity market is, and has been, bullish – just as we have been telling our members.  If you have been fooled by this recent price rotation or other research posts, please consider Technical Traders Ltd. services to learn how we can help you profit from these moves.

Recent news seems to have everyone concerned about Italy, global debts, Europe and the potential for a debt contagion exploding into the markets.  Yet, our research into price activity says this market is just getting started with an upside swing that could be massive.  Take a few minutes to review our current research to see why we believe the extended level of fear in the markets is related to the recent February price rotation and a generally accepted erroneous Elliot Wave Count.

We, the research team at Technical Traders Ltd., pride ourselves at sticking to our proprietary research and waiting for price to tell us if our analysis is correct or not.  Because of this, our research can sometimes directly opposite to the other analysts out there.  The tricky part of trying to predict the future is that we won’t know if we are correct until the market does what it does in the future.  Still, we believe that price is critical to understanding the markets dynamics at play as well as a core understanding of economic fundamentals as related to capital, debt, expectations and degrees of risk.  Keeping this in mind, let’s get to the charts to show you what we are seeing in the markets right now.

This Weekly SPY chart clearly shows the recent upside price breakout of the RED and YELLOW price downtrend ranges.  Additionally, even though Italy sent shock waves through the markets yesterday, the price recovery today pushed the closing price to well above the key support level near $270.  Pay close attention to the GREEN upward price sloping line near recent lows.  Unless this level if breached/broken, there is no reason for great concern of any downside price move.

 

This next chart, the Weekly TRAN (Transportation Index), paints an even clearer picture of the recent price advance.  Weekly, the price lows since the February market lows, have been advancing to higher and higher levels.  The most recent unique low, near $10,100, is the current Fibonacci Key Price Low and as long as the current price does not rotate lower to test that level, we have nothing to worry about in terms of downside price activity.  Yes, price rotation could continue within this range ($10,000 to $11,000), but that unique low price is the key to the support that is holding the markets together and driving price higher.

This last chart is a Weekly IYT ETF.  It is very similar to the Transportation Index chart, but still shows a very clear upward sloping price channel and a more recent upward sloping price advance near the right side of this chart.  Pay attention to the MACD levels on each of these charts.  In each instance the MACD has rotated into a bullish indication with the potential for an even greater price advance setting up.

In our opinion, the concern in the market regarding global debt is warranted.  We will post a more detailed research report on this issue in the near future for all our followers.  Yet we believe the fundamentals of the US market is strong and we believe the “completed wave 5 Elliot Wave” analysis that is being proposed by many analysts is erroneous.  We issued our research on this issue a little over a week ago and we are waiting to see if price breaks to new all-time highs to confirm our analysis.

Please don’t get caught off-guard with regards to this price rotation and what it means to the markets.  A massive price expansion pattern is setting up in the US markets that may drive prices much higher all the way through 2019 and possibly further.  We believe many of the major analysts have missed this pattern and we have positioned our loyal members to take advantage of this move in the future.
