Important Trade and Investment Alert Was Issued

This massive bounce/rally, whatever you want to call it is playing out exactly as planned.

We locked in partial profits on our simple investing portfolio SPY ETF position and now entered another new position for much larger gains until it gets more exhausted. But don’t be fooled by this sucker’s rally. This is the beginning of the end as I showed the charts and explained here.

We all have trading accounts, and while our trading accounts are important, what is even more important are our long-term investment and retirement accounts. Why? Because they are, in most cases, our largest store of wealth other than our homes, and if they are not protected during a time like this, you could lose 25-50% or more of your entire net worth. The good news is we can preserve and even grow out long term capital when things get ugly like they are now and ill show you how.

We just issued this trade alert to members of The Technical Investor newsletter which allows members to protect their wealth and assets while continuing to take advantage of opportunities generated by the US and global markets.  This is the first trade alert issued in 2020 of this kind.

If you are an active investor or traders, have a retirement account of any type or have assets in the stock market, then we urge you to take action and sign up to get this investment trade signal.

Our focus is to help traders and investors protect and grow their wealth. We use proprietary price modeling tools that can’t be found anywhere else.  Our combined 55+ years investing and active trading experience provides you with incredible insight and opportunity.

Passive investing is something for the “other guys”.  If you want to grow your wealth, protect your assets, and learn to take advantage of the biggest price swings in the markets, then you need to follow our research and price modeling systems with us.

If you are concerned this may too be active for you, just know that we only buy the SP500 ETFs or move your money to cash where it is the most effective at times. If you can call your broker and tell them what to do with our alert instruction, or if you can place the trades yourself, then you can follow these investing signals.

Remember, bull market trades will last 5-12 years, bear market trades will last 1-3 years. No matter what, we can make money during both markets.

Each year we have 2-3 trade opportunities to add new capital to the market if you more money to add to your position.

Since 2007, Passive Investing would have returned only 53.75% ROI – only 4.48% annually.  Active investing using our proprietary price modeling systems and deploying our proprietary position allocation modeling tools returned over 135% ROI – a 11.49% annually over the same time period.  That’s a whopping 230% more annual return than simply letting your investments ride out the market fluctuations.

Allow us to take a minute to explain just how powerful this advantage really is to you.

Imagine you started with a $100,000 account and compared the difference between a passive investment style and TheTechnicalInvestor.com trading style over a span of 10 to 15 years.  Most investors contribute to their retirement accounts over a 25+ year span of time – possibly longer.  The difference between the two styles of investing is dramatically different in terms of the final results:

At the 5 year mark, the difference between the two styles is almost $48,000 in extra profits (over +38% more growth for your assets).

At the 10 year mark, the difference between the two styles is almost $140,000 in extra profits (over +91% more growth for your assets).

At the 15 year mark, the difference between the two styles is almost $318,000 in extra profits (over +164% more growth for your assets).

After the 15 year example (assuming your passive investment style maintained a 4.48% annual ROI and our active investment style maintained an 11.49% annual ROI), the results are stunning.

With passive investing, you would have nearly DOUBLED your assets and wealth.

With TheTechnicalInvestor.com active investing, you would have more than TRIPLED your assets and wealth.

When you add our proprietary “re-entry” triggering system, the numbers explode to +40% annual ROI with 1x leverage; 3512% with 2x leverage; 9417% with 3x leverage.

The difference is that we help you navigate the bigger price swings/trends in the market and actively help you manage your allocation in the markets using our proprietary price and position sizing technology.

What’s the cost for TheTechnicalInvestor.com? $249 per year or $149 every 6 months.  Annually that breaks down to about $21 a month, which is $1 per trading day to know you are on the right side of the market.

Isn’t it time you took advantage of proprietary technology and services and started to create even more opportunities to grow your assets?  The market volatility recently has created an incredible opportunity for everyone that has a retirement/401k account.  Now is the time to focus on these big price swings because this is when opportunities are created to grow your wealth 3 to 5 times faster.

Signs Of Long Term Devaluation Real Estate

Continuing our research into the Real Estate market and our expectations over the next 6+ months or longer, we want to point out the disconnect between the current US stock market rally and the forward expectations related to the real economy.  Our researchers believe the current data from Realtor.com as well as forward expectations suggest a major shift related to “at-risk” real estate (both commercial and residential).

Unlike the 2008-09 credit crisis, the COVID-19 virus event is quickly disrupting consumer engagement within the global economy and disrupting spending activities.  Spending is shifting to online, fast food, and technology services for those that still have an income.  For those that have lost their jobs, spending is centered around surviving the COVID-19 virus event and hoping to see new opportunities and jobs when things open back up.

The coronavirus-fueled economic downturn is hitting homeowners hard. And the worst may be yet to come.

2008-09 REAL ESTATE PRICE COLLAPSE CHART

The biggest difference between 2008-09 and now is that the Real Estate sector is not the driving force behind the economic collapse – it is part of the collateral damage of the COVID-19 virus event related to failed consumer businesses, loss of jobs, disruption to the consumer economy and the destruction of income for many.  Yes, for a while, some people will be able to keep things together and “hold on” while hoping the economy comes back to life quickly.  Others won’t be so lucky.

The one aspect of all of this that people seem to fail to understand is the shift in consumer mentality related to the shifting economic environment.  Right now, consumers are dealing with the shock of job losses, the virus crisis itself and what the future US and global economy may look like.  Many people fail to understand that we really don’t know what the recovery process will become or when it will start.  Yes, we are making progress in trying to contain the COVID-19 virus, but the process of rebuilding the global economy to anywhere near the early 2020 levels is still many months away and full of potential collateral damage events.

MULTI-SECTOR PRICE TREND CHART (DAILY)

To help illustrate how the markets are reacting to the optimism of capital being poured into the global economy vs. the reality of the Consumer and Financial sectors, this chart highlights the SPY (BLUE) current price activity vs the NASDAQ 100 Financial Sector (GREEN) and the Consumer Discretionary sector (GOLD).  The SPY recently disconnected from a very close correlation to the other sectors near mid-April – about 2 weeks after the US Fed initiated the stimulus program.  The S&P, NASDAQ, and DOW Industrials have benefited from this disconnect by attracting new investments while the Consumer and Financial sectors have really started to come under moderate pricing pressure.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

We believe this disconnect is related to the perceived reality of certain investors vs. other types of investors.  Institutional traders may be pouring capital into the US major market indexes while more conservative traders are waiting out the “unknowns” before jumping into the global markets.  We believe the extended volatility will create waves of opportunity as capital rotates between sectors attempting to find new opportunities for quick gains.

We also believe the unknown collateral damage processes will present very real risks over the next 6+ months as the markets seek out a real bottom.

A recent MarketWatch.com article suggests a new mortgage crisis in inevitable given the disruption to the US economy and consumer’s ability to earn income and service debt levels:

Pay attention.  These recent rallies in the US major indexes may not be painting a very clear picture of the risks still present in the US economy.  It is almost like speculation is driving prices higher while economic data suggest major collateral damage is still unknown.  We suggest reviewing this research article for more details:

In closing, we would like to suggest that the next 5+ years are going to be incredible opportunities for skilled traders.  Remember, we’ve already mapped out price trends 10+ years into the future that we expect based on our advanced predictive modeling tools.  If our analysis is correct, skilled traders will be able to make a small fortune trading these trends and Metals will skyrocket.  The only way you’ll know which trades to take or not is to become a member.

Long-Term Predictive Software Suggests Volatility May Surge

Over the past few weeks and months, a number of key economic data has continued to rally the US major indexes towards new highs, hopes of a US/China trade deal, a continued shift of capital in the US markets for protection and safety, and moderately strong US economic indicators and an earning season that appears to be moderately strong for Q3 of 2019.  The interesting facet of this move higher is that it is happening while trading volume has diminished dramatically in the SPY.  The futures contracts, the ES, YM, and NQ, continue to show relatively strong volume activity though.

Additionally, the overnight Repo markets have risen to the attention of many skilled analysts.  The concern is that the continued US Fed support of the overnight Repo facility may be a band-aid attempt to support a gaping credit crisis that is brewing just outside of view.  We’ve been doing quite a bit of research over the past few weeks regarding this Repo market support by the US Fed and we believe there is more to it than many believe.  We believe certain institutional banking firms may be at extreme risks related to derivative investments, shadow banking activities and/or global commodity/stock/currency/asset risk exposure.  The only answer we have for the extended Repo facility at increasing levels is that the institutional banking system is starting to “fray around the edges”.  Thus, we believe some larger credit risk problems may be just around the corner.

Our longer-term analysis continues to suggest that “all is fine – until it is not”.  Our belief that a capital shift that has been taking place over the past 5+ years where foreign capital continues to pour into the US markets is driving US stock market prices higher.  There is evidence that the capital shift into the US has slowed over the past 5+ months, yet one would not notice this by looking at these longer-term charts.  The point we are trying to make today is that price peaks near current highs have, historically, been met with strong resistance and collapsed by 8 to 15% on average.

SP500 INDEX – 2 MONTH LONG TERM CHART

This ES 2 Month chart highlights the resistance channel initiated near the 2003 lows (the lower YELLOW price channel line) and how that level has continued to act as moderate price resistance throughout most of 2017, 2018 and 2019.  We believe that price, at current levels, must either rally above this level and be capable of sustaining higher price levels (which would be supported by stronger forward guidance, earnings, economic data and/or investments), or will attempt to rotate lower from these current highs because price is simply unable to support/sustain higher price levels given the current global economic data.

When we attempt to rationalize the potential for price given the Repo issues, the current global economic data/news, the uncertainty of a US Presidential election cycle only 12 months away, the BREXIT deal hanging out in the near future and recent currency rotations, we believe is transitional shift is taking place in the markets in preparation for some type of surge in volatility associated with a very strong potential for extended price rotation.

NASDAQ 2 WEEK CHART – ADAPTIVE DYNAMIC LEARNING (ADL)

Our Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) price modeling system on this NQ 2-Week chart highlights what the ADL system suggests as a moderate price rotation setting up over the next 2 to 8+ weeks.  This data originates on August 5, 2019, and the alignment of the future predicted price levels (the DASHES) on this chart shows how accurate the ADL future price predictions have been over the past 3+ months.  Currently, the ADL predictive modeling system is suggesting a price reversion is about to take place in the NQ where price may fall 10 to 15% over the next 2 to 6+ weeks.  Then, the price will attempt to set up a momentum base and begin to move higher near the end of 2019 or early into 2020.

DOW 2 WEEK CHART – ADAPTIVE DYNAMIC LEARNING (ADL)

This YM 2-Week chart showing the same type of ADL predicted price levels suggests the YM may also see some type of price reversion, yet the size of this reversion is much smaller than the NQ.  The ADL predictive modeling system is suggesting the YM may rotate to levels near 26,000 or lower before finding immediate support and attempting a renewed rally back to levels near 27,000.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

What this suggests is that the NASDAQ and S&P500 may become much more volatile than the Dow Jones index over the next 2 to 6+ weeks.  Volatility may surge on a reversion move in the ES and NQ over the next few months while the YM remains rather calm comparatively.  Skilled traders must understand that subtle risks are starting to show throughout the global markets.  Foreign markets are starting to show signs of extended contraction – China and Asia in particular.  The situation in Europe and with the Euro are open to interpretation.  Our opinion is that risk levels have already exceeded a comfort level in this arena.

Should some event take place where the global banking system and/or Repo market continue to attempt to take up the slack – traders will become even more concerned that “something is broken” and could pull massive amounts of capital out of the markets fairly quickly.  If this happens when volume and volatility are very low, we have a situation where simple price exploration could present a real problem (think FLASH CRASH).

Skilled traders need to stay very cautious near these new highs.  We may see a surge in volatility over the next few weeks unless the markets are able to settle the concerns raised by analysts and others.  Headed into the end of 2019, into a contentious US presidential election cycle and with obvious signs that something may be breaking in the global banking system, now is the time to protect and prepare for the unknown.  We can’t make this any clearer – consider this a warning alert from www.TheTechnicalTraders.com.

Adaptive Price Modeling Suggests Big Rotation In US Dow Stocks

I have been pouring over the longer term charts as we’ve started to see Oil and Gold move in directions that would indicate increased fear throughout the global markets while a contraction in economic activity/oil prices appears to be setting up for another big move.  The objective is to attempt to identify longer-term volatility expectations and price targets.  To accomplish this task, we use our Adaptive Fibonacci predictive modeling utility on 3 Week charts because they provide a unique look at price activity and are a bit more reactive to shorter-term price activity than Monthly price bars.

We found some very interesting components by reviewing these charts of the ES, NQ, YM, and CL.  We believe we are setting up a 2~4+ week sideways price rotation in the US stock market as price attempts to consolidate within this range before a broader breakout/breakdown move could happen.  Just as we predicted many months ago, the July 2019 price peak we suggested could form appears to be setting up with a sideways pennant/flag formation as investors digest the economic and global trade war news data.

Eventually, the price will make a move in an attempt to break this sideways price channel and our predictive modeling solutions can help us to understand how these price setups will playing out.  Let’s get into the charts and research.

As we start to pull apart the data from these charts, we urge you to pay attention to two things – the range of the current Bullish & Bearish Fibonacci Price Trigger levels and current price rotations of price peaks and troughs over the past 40 to 60 bars.  It is very important to understand and attempt to use the “new price high” and “new price low” Fibonacci price theory that we keep talking about in our articles.

This first chart is the ES 3-Week chart highlighting the range between the Fibonacci Bullish and Bearish Price Trigger Levels (highlighted in light-CYAN).  It is important to understand why the current bearish price trigger level is so far below current price levels.  The Adaptive Fibonacci modeling system adjusts trigger levels based on recent price activity and price volatility to attempt to identify when the price is congesting in a sideways price trend or trending upward or downward.  When price congests in a sideways form, the Adaptive Fibonacci modeling tool identifies this and determines that price would need to move to new levels in order to qualify for a new bullish or bearish price trigger.  In this case, it is suggesting that price would need to fall below $2014 before this 3-Week chart would qualify the move as a “new bearish trend”.

That is a big move from current levels.  It totals more than -750 points – a -27.5% price decline.

Currently, as long as the ES price stays above the $2633 level, the Fibonacci predictive modeling system is still suggesting the Bullish trend is intact and should continue.

 

This NQ 3-Week chart is setup in a similar manner to the ES chart. Although the Fibonacci volatility range on the NQ chart is much more narrow than the ES chart, the Fibonacci modeling system is still suggesting that the current trend is still Bullish and the key levels for the triggers are $6792 for the Bearish Trigger level and $6556 for the Bullish Trigger level.

Because of the narrow volatility range and because the Bearish trigger level is above the Bullish trigger level, we believe a price rotation where the price stays above $6800 is very likely over the next few weeks.  Obviously, should price break below the Bearish Trigger level, then we would begin to become concerned that a broader downside trend is being established and start to look at the Fibonacci downside price targets (near $5815 & $3900).  Until that happens, expect sideways price rotation with a 250 to 500 point range on average (about 2x the Fibonacci volatility range).

 

The YM is really the key to understanding just how the markets are going to play out over the next few weeks and months.  The extremely large Fibonacci volatility range on the YM chart highlights the potential for the wild sideways price rotation that we are expecting over the next few weeks and months.  Remember, our analysis from many months ago suggests a price peak will likely form in July/August 2019 and prompt a broader downside price move after this peak completes.  Our expectation that a current sideways price channel is setting up leads us to believe the apex of this sideways price channel may result in a very brief price rally (pushing prices back towards recent highs) before rolling over and starting a new downside price move to coincide with our July/Aug 2019 predictions.

One way or another, it appears the DOW/YM will be leading the way in terms of price volatility and rotation.  The wide range between the Bullish and Bearish Fibonacci Price Trigger Levels is suggesting that price volatility is increasing and that the YM would have to move to levels above $29,750 or to levels below $18,875 before establishing any new price trends.  The past Fibonacci trigger levels help us to understand key price levels as this future move takes place.

Past Fibonacci Trigger Price levels are $26,025 for a Bearish Price Trigger level and $24,770 for a Bullish Price Trigger Level.  This means if the price is below $26,025 – we should expect a bearish price trend to continue and if the price is above $24,770 – we should expect a bullish price trend to continue.  Yet, price is current BETWEEN both of these levels, so what should we expect right now?  When the price is in between these levels, like now, we typically look for the last price rotation (peak or valley) and for the last level that was crossed (in this case the $26,025 Bearish level) and would conclude:

The trend is currently Bearish and the $26,025 level is key to maintaining this bearish price direction.  Should price move back above this level and close above this Bearish Price Trigger Level, then we would consider the trend “moderately bullish” while we wait for a new Price Trigger Level Breach to setup.

 

Lastly, Crude Oil.  We’ve been writing to all of our followers that we felt Oil was setting up for a price rotation many weeks ago.  We warned that the $65 price level may be the end of the move and that the $55 to $50 levels are the likely downside targets.  The volatility range is somewhat narrow and the last Trigger Level that was breached was the Bearish Trigger Level near $68.75. Therefore, we believe the recent downside price move, below the $60 Bullish Trigger level, results in a new Bearish price trend with immediate targets near or below $50.  Ultimately, the $42.40 level may be the longer term downside price target – which would coincide with a broader commodities slowdown and global economic activity contraction.

 

So here is what you need to know to go into this weekend and for the next 4+ weeks.

Expect the US stock market to trade in a moderately volatile sideways price channel for the next 4+ weeks.

Expect the end of this price channel to result in a “false rally” move that may push prices towards recent highs before faltering and rotating back to the downside.

Expect this END of the sideways price channel to happen sometime near mid-July or early August 2019.

Expect Gold and Oil to continue to react as “fear measures” over the next few weeks/months as global traders reposition their assets throughout this rotation.

Expect a bigger price move near late July through September~October 2019 as this volatility move really begins to take root with equities.
