Technical Analysis Points To Key Reversal Of Global Markets

Recently, we received a number of email messages and comments regarding our recent Bitcoin article and how we attempted to explain the market trend/technical analysis.  It appears we were not making our interpretation very clear for our friends and followers.  This article should help to clear up our interpretation of the major market trends and our advanced technical analysis tools and utilities.

As purely technical traders, there are certain things we want to make clear.  First, we do pay attention to what is happening to the fundamentals and global economic data when it posts.  We’ve authored many previous articles stating our belief that “capital is like a living/breathing entity which attempts to survive (generate ROI with little risk) in various global market environments”.  In order for us, as technical traders, to identify real opportunities for superior trades, we must be aware of what is happening in the “environment” that surrounds us.

A perfect example is a recent collapse in oil.  We continue to read articles of how thousands of traders believed super-low oil prices were a GIFT and these traders piled into long trades expecting oil to rebound higher.  This happens when technical traders fail to understand the environment in which the instrument is trading within.  At this time, the supply side for oil vastly outweighs the demand-side – so the environment is skewed towards much weaker price activity.  The chance that any moderate price recovery would take place is minimal until the supply glut is diminished.

One of the easiest ways to think of a truly technical trader is that we don’t care if the price goes up or down, we just care that our technical triggers and indicators present clear opportunities that are superior to more traditional methods of trading.

To accomplish this, we believe we must understand the environment in which we are trading and the technical conditions that are present within the charts.  Technically, the price may be going up within a defined bearish/downtrend. This does not mean the upside price move is a technically valid “trade trigger”.  The opposite may be true for a move down in a bullish trending market.  Without proper confirmation of the overall technical bias, environment, and shorter-term technical triggers – one might as well throw a dart at a wall and hope for the best.

In our view, we issue many published research reports for our friends and followers to read and review every week.  We show both bullish and bearish potential outcomes and depending on which way the market breaks we will execute trades in that direction. What we do not do, is trade based on forecasts/predictions. Instead, we follow the price.

Our interpretation of the technical triggers, economic data, forward expectations, and other setups are designed to help you learn how we conduct our research and to help you find opportunities in the markets.  Our members receive this same research and more – they receive our hand-selected trade triggers.  These are the best technical setups/trade triggers known as BAN Trades (Best Asset Now) so we can find that provide superior opportunities for skilled traders.

This chart, below, shows our historical results for the past 2.5 years.  You’ll notice that we do sometimes take losses – yes.  You’ll also notice the consistency of the profits – yes.  We hope you’ll also notice that we work very hard to make sure our member’s success is the first priority in everything we do.

2020 has been a slow year for overall portfolio gains simply because of the market crash and extreme volatility. My #1 goal is to trade when risk is manageable, and the market is predictable. Don’t get me wrong, we have made money on the SPY, over 20% in TLT, 9.5% in GDXJ, and yesterday we locked in 11% on natural gas, so we are trading. But position sizes are small in comparison to our overall portfolio value so we don’t get oversized portfolio growth. When indexes, sectors, and commodities are moving 10-90% a day, it’s a time when position sizing becomes curial for survival.

You will not notice the market crash this year had no impact on our account because we did one of the best trades during the unexpected and unpredictable crash, we moved to 100% cash. Our results are based on a $20K account and over the past 2.5 years we are averaging 33% ROI with very little drawdowns.

Now, back to technical analysis…

Our research team believes the markets have set up a massive downside price advance (creating a much deeper low that confirms Fibonacci price theory and aligns with our Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arcs), which sets up a very unique technical pattern.  Until the price is capable of establishing a series of new higher-high points through consecutive upside price advances AND until the Weekly and Monthly charts confirm a new high price breakout – technically speaking, we’re still in a bearish price trend.

WEEKLY S&P 500 (SPY) CHART

This Weekly SPY chart, below, shows you three key technical factors that tell us there is a greater risk of a breakdown in price than any upside price trend continuation…

A.  The recent low/bottom price level broke below the December 2018 low price level (new lower low).

B.  The GREEN ARC price level is a massive 1.618 Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arc that suggests massive resistance exists at this level.  Price moving above this level then falling back below it suggests a “scouting pattern” type of event took place and FAILED.

C.  Recent price activity has rallied from recent lows too, again, reconfirm the GREEN ARC resistance level.  We believe this Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arc will present a major price ceiling as Q2 and Q3 economic data pushes forward – driving the price lower over time and eventually targeting the RED support level near $208 in July or August.

You may remember that we’ve been suggesting a bottom will not complete until sometime after July or August 2020 in previous research posts.  Now you know where we derive these projections and expectations, we use technical analysis and our advanced predictive modeling tools to “see into the future”.  Believe it or not, we’ve already mapped out SPY price activity 10+ years into the future.

WEEKLY TRANSPORTATION INDEX (TRAN) CHART

This TRAN Weekly chart also helps to confirm our technical analysis research.  We are deploying the same types of technical analysis tools on all of these charts to show you how our research team attempts to identify trends and opportunities.  You can see the heavy LIGHT RED Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arc near the peak in February 2020.  This Arc represents a massive price resistance channel.  You may also notice the thinner ORANGE Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arc that touches recent lows?  This arc acts as Support in its current form.

Our proprietary Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling System is drawing a CYAN projected target level from recent lows where the heavy CYAN line is displayed on this chart.  Additionally, a previous BLUE target level is also displayed on this chart which originated from the recent PEAK in February 2020.  Now, pay attention to where the TRAN price has found recent resistance and stalled…  RIGHT AT THOSE LEVELS.

We believe the failure of the SPY and TRAN to move above the ARCs and Fibonacci price targets suggests a critical upward price trend failure.  A failure of this nature will prompt a new downside price move in the near future as price must always attempt to establish new price highs or new price lows based on the Fibonacci Price Theory (technical analysis).

MONTHLY DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL (INDU)

This last chart, the Monthly INDU, is probably the most impressive one so far.  Clear Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arcs suggest massive resistance near the February 2020 peak levels.  A very clear downward price channel originating from the February 2018 lows and transitioning across the December 2018 lows and into current lows.  An Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling System target price (CYAN) near 8108 (very near current price levels) and a very clear technical price pattern (Dojis) suggesting a potential top or price reversal is setting up.  Lastly, the recent deep low price stalled very near to the historical YELLOW DASHED price channel that spans the 2000 and 2007 price peaks.

Pulling all of this technical analysis together with simple Fibonacci Price Theory suggests that until the markets can prove to us that price is capable of establishing we upside price structures, the recent deep new price low (near 18,265) suggests future price action may collapse even further and attempt to establish a new, deeper, “new price low” before the real bottoms set up in the markets.  On this INDU chart, it suggests that a “deeper price low” may result in a move well below the YELLOW DASHED price channel from 2000/07 and attempt to move to the RED Fibonacci Price Target level near 14,000.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Obviously, we are still very bearish in terms of the current overall market trend.  No technical analysis technique has shown us that the intermediate and longer-term trends have changed direction to Bullish.  Yes, our Daily systems did identify a bullish trigger within this bearish trend on the SPY which we executed successfully for our members.  There is an opportunity to take a bullish trade within a bearish price trend when technical analysis confirms the trigger and it is executed properly.

If you are using our free public research for your own trading decision-making and/or using it as an opportunity to find and execute successful trades, please remember you are the one ultimately making the decisions to trade based on our interpretation and free research posts.  We, as technical traders, will continue to post new research articles and content that we believe is relevant to the current market setups.

Natural Gas Breaks $2.00 On Upside Rally and Next Target

Overnight, Natural Gas broke above the $2.00 price level as we expected.  On April 6, 2020, we published our research that Natural Gas was setting up a bottom pattern and that our seasonal analysis suggested April and May should prompt a price rally in Natural Gas pushing price levels above $2.40.

The current rally has broken above a price resistance level near $2.00 and the rally up to $2.40 may happen faster than we expect.  Currently, our Daily Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting the $2.35 area is the first area of resistance.  Beyond that, the next level of resistance would be near $2.90.  Beyond that incredible upside target, the Fibonacci Weekly data is projecting an upper target near $3.60.

We are not suggesting that Natural Gas could rally 90% over the next few weeks, but we are alerting you that a move to $2.40 seems highly likely after our incredible bottom call on April 6, 2020.

DAILY NATURAL GAS CHART

This Daily Natural Gas chart highlights the rounded bottom setup that prompted us to make the bottom warning.  Skilled traders will see an inverted Head-n-Shoulders pattern where the head consists of a double-bottom pattern near the end of March and into early April.  The opportunity to buy into Natural Gas below $1.70 presented a very clear opportunity with little risk.

WEEKLY NATURAL GAS CHART

This Weekly Natural Gas chart highlights the Fibonacci Price Modeling system’s projected upside targets.  The first target, near $2.40, is an easy target for a first profit level.  The next upside target level for-profits should be near the RED LINE, near $2.55.  Beyond that, if Natural Gas continues to rally, the next area for skilled traders to pull profits would be the $2.95 level.  Any move higher beyond that level would be a gift with a target level near $3.60.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Overall, this has been an excellent trade.  We got our members into this trade fairly early and are already pulling profits and trailing stops.  It certainly helps to have the modeling systems and seasonal analysis tools we use to find these setups for our members – but you can do it too.  All it takes is a bit of skill and understanding of how certain markets operate within seasonal trends and setups.  Otherwise, if you don’t have the time to research every chart we can do it all for you and just send you the trades we are taking.

As a technical analyst and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles in stocks and commodities. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for investing and short-term swing traders. 2020 is an incredible year for traders and investors.  Don’t miss all the incredible trends and trade setups.

Subscribers of my Active ETF Swing Trading Newsletter had our trading accounts close at a new high watermark. We not only exited the equities market as it started to roll over in February, but we profited from the sell-off in a very controlled way with TLT bonds for a 20% gain. This week we closed out SPY ETF trade taking advantage of this bounce and entered a new trade with our account is at another all-time high value.

Ride my coattails as I navigate these financial markets and build wealth while others watch most of their retirement funds drop 35-65% during the rest of this financial crisis going into late 2020 and early 2021.

Just think of this for a minute. While most of us have active trading accounts, 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 the next bear market, you could lose 25-50% or more of your net worth. The good news is we can preserve and even grow our long term capital when things get ugly like they are now and ill show you how and one of the best trades is one your financial advisor will never let you do because they do not make money from the trade/position.

How to Know Where S&P 500, Gold, and Bonds are Headed Next

I’ve been trading since 1997 and I’ve lived through numerous market events.  The one thing I teach my members is that risk is always a big part of trading and that’s why I structure all of my research and trading signals around “finding profits while reducing overall risks”.  Sure, there are fast profits to be made in these wild market swings, but those types of trades are extremely risky for most people – and I don’t know of anyone that wants to risk 50 or 60% of their assets on a few wild trades.

I’m offering you the chance to learn to profit, as I do with my own money, from market trends that I hand-pick for my own trading.  These are not wild, crazy trades – these are simple, effective, and slower types of trades that consistently build wealth.  I issue about 4 to 8+ trades a month for my members and adjust trade allocation based on my proprietary allocation algo – the objective is to gain profits while managing overall risks.

You don’t have to spend days or weeks trying to learn my system.  You don’t have to try to learn to make these decisions on your own or follow the markets 24/7 – I do that for you.  All you have to do is follow my research and trading signals and start benefiting from my research and trades.  My new mobile app makes it simple – download the app, sign in and everything is delivered to your phone, tablet, or desktop.

I offer membership services for active traders, long-term investors, and wealth/asset managers.  Each of these services is driven by my own experience and my proprietary trading systems and modeling systems.  I have a small team of dedicated researchers and developers that do nothing but research and find trading signals for my members.  Our objective is to help you protect and grow your wealth.

BitCoin Retests Resistance Near 9370 – What Next?

If you pay attention to the trends taking place on the Weekly Bitcoin chart, you’ll notice that it has reacted to the global market Covid-19 trends almost exclusively since the beginning of 2020.  After the end of 2019, the US stock market rallied on Q4: 2019 data and so did Bitcoin.  The US Stock market peaked near February 20 and began a deeper selloff on February 25 – Bitcoin followed this pattern as well.  When the US Fed initiated the stimulus on March 23, Bitcoin prices had already started to bottom in anticipation of the Fed stimulus and really began to rally after the Fed began intervening.

BITCOIN VS S&P 500 DAILY CHART COMPARISON

This is a bit unusual for Bitcoin, which in the past didn’t correlate to the US stock market trends all that well.  What changed?  We believe the sudden correlation of Bitcoin to the US Stock Market trends are related to investor psychology and the perceived efforts of the Central Banks in supporting the global economy.

We find it interesting that a decentralized cryptocurrency, which is supposed to be independent of global central banks and governments, suddenly aligns almost perfectly with the US stock market in correlation with the US Federal Reserve.  It is almost as if Bitcoin prices are much more aligned with the global economy and global central banks as this crisis event unfolds.  This suggests the true value of Bitcoin is not as an alternate, decentralized currency.  The true value of Bitcoin is a hyper-speculative alternate store of value – unrelated to any real asset or oversight process.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR BITCOIN – WEEKLY CHART

If our research is correct, the current downside price channel (Resistance) originating from the June 2019 highs will prompt a massive breakdown in price over the next 5+ weeks – possibly longer.  There are two key factors that lead us to this conclusion.  First, the correlation to the US stock market, which we believe will continue to move lower until an ultimate bottom is reached near July or August 2020.  Second, the massive Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arc inflection point (the GREEN ARC) which will be reached in less than seven days.

If Bitcoin continues to mirror the US stock market price action and this inflection point does what we believe, then a massive breakdown in price may start to trend sometime between May 8 and May 14.

DAILY BITCOIN CHART

This Daily Bitcoin Chart shows you what we believe to be the most likely outcome going forward.  A bit of upward price rotation to potentially retest the resistance level, then a moderate selloff, followed by a brief sideways trend before an even deeper selloff begins.  This may be a map of what the US stock market may do over the exact same span of time.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Our researchers believe the ultimate bottom will set up near the end of Q3: 2020.  We believe general weakness will push the US stock market price towards an ultimate low/bottom near July or August 2020.  After that bottom completes, Q4: 2020 may see a moderate upside price trend as the Santa Rally mode kicks in.  If Bitcoin mirrors this move, then it may attempt to move below the $3850 level and ultimately attempt to find a bottom below $3000.

Our researchers believe Bitcoin has recently aligned with the US stock market and the global central banks.  If this is the case, then the “alternate decentralized currency” aspect of cryptos becomes a useless component of the market.  If Bitcoin mirrors the SPY going forward, then it is just an expensive, highly volatile alternate measure of the US stock market and global central bank activities.

Watch for the price breakdown near May 10th or so.

As a technical analyst and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles in stocks and commodities. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for investing and short-term swing traders. 2020 is an incredible year for traders and investors.  Don’t miss all the incredible trends and trade setups.

ADL Predictive Modeling Suggests US Stock Market Recovery In Q4 2020

Our research team has put together these charts of our ADL modeling system (Advanced Dynamic Learning), which shows a very clear upside price recovery starting to take place in late September or early October of this year. The ADL system also suggests the recovery may last through most of Q4:2020 before the markets collapse again in early 2021.

This predictive modeling system has become somewhat of a hit with our members and our followers.  We continue to get requests from members for selected ADL research related to Oil, the NASDAQ, or other symbols. The idea that we can attempt to see into the future with a certain degree of accuracy would certainly appeal to any trader/investor.

These updated ADL charts show that the US stock market may stay under some downward/sideways pricing pressure until last September 2020 – prompting a Q4 “Santa Rally”, before the markets appear to find a new extreme weakness in early 2021.  This suggests a brief uptick in consumer activity and economic engagement centered around the November 2020 elections and the 2020 Christmas Holiday season, then back to a more contracted economic mode in early 2021.

YM MONTHLY CHART

This YM Monthly chart highlights our ADL predictive modeling system’s results from a September 2019 origination point.  The one thing we want to add about the ADL system and the current Covid-19 virus event is that our ADL system attempts to map historic price activity into “DNA markers” and uses those DNA markers to attempt to identify and predict future price activity.  Obviously, there has been nothing like the Covid-19 virus event in recent history.  Thus, the ADL predictive modeling system is attempting to apply price DNA to an event that is unprecedented in 80+ years of price history.

Our researchers believe the ADL system will be able to pick up inherent price rotations and trends that relate to existing price DNA markers, yet the scale and scope of the price moves related to the current Covid-19 event may be much larger and more volatile than the ADL predictive modeling system is capable of indicating.  For example, take a look at the YM chart below and realize that price moved well beyond the ADL predictive price markers on this chart.  This is not an anomaly in price, this is an extreme moment in time that the ADL predictive modeling system is incapable of modeling accurately.

Thus, as we are showing you the ADL predictive modeling results, remember that extreme volatility related to the global market event could push the price 6% to 15% further away from these predicted price levels very easily as volatility increases.  Thus, a bottom shown on this chart near 24,000 with the ADL system could actually result in a price bottom near 22.460 or 20,400 (6% to 15% below the projected price level).

MONTHLY NQ CHART

This Monthly NQ chart shows that the tech-heavy NASDAQ may provide a more stable sideways market rotation over the next 6+ months than the S&P500 or the Dow Industrials.  The ADL system is suggesting that the NQ will likely move lower over the next 3+ months before recovering back to the 9,000 price range in September/October 2020.  Again, we see moderate weakness in price in early 2021 for a short period of time before price attempts to resettle near 9,200 in Q2:2021

This suggests the NASDAQ will continue to attract foreign investment and show more restrained price volatility than the Dow or the S&P.  Again, pay attention to the extreme volatility in the markets and how the price has extended 5% to 15%+ beyond the ADL predictive price levels.  Until the volatility subsides, continue to expect this extreme price rage volatility.

Our ADL system accurately predicted the month gold started a new bull market last year which Eric Sprott talked about. Also, we predicted the month oil was going to crash. while price hit our downside target correctly the price went way beyond that as we all know.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Overall, it appears September/October of 2020 is setting up for a moderate US stock market price recovery. Until then, it appears we have a bit of additional price rotation and volatility to contend with.  The interesting take-away from all of this is that our original expectation for a price bottom near or after June or July 2020 seems very accurate.

Technical traders should wait for the price to confirm these predictions before taking any actions.  This is a great market for skilled short term traders to find opportunities.  But it is also very dangerous for traders to chase trends.

The next few years are going to be full of incredible opportunities for skilled traders and investors.  Huge price swings, incredible revaluation events, and, eventually, an incredible upside rally will start again.

The Gold Bull Market and the SP 500 Index

May 17th 2010
Back in the third week of April I predicted here on Kitco.com a topping in the broader market indices. The theory was the VIX levels were extremely and historically too low concomitant with extremely high historical readings in investor bullish sentiment gauges. After thirteen Fibonacci months of a bull cycle rally, it was likely an A B C correction to the downside would begin. In further follows ups on TheMarketTrendForecast.com service I run on April 20th, I again outlined concerns with falling volumes on small cap stocks and too many “stories” being run up too far ahead of the economics.

At this point in the Bull market, it is common to have the crowd of investors move from a bias towards viewing all news as positive, to a negative slant on all news. Nothing has changed dramatically on the problems the world had before with Debt and currencies, but the reaction to those events turns negative. This works off the overly optimistic Elliott Wave patterns of the crowd, turning into a typical Zig Zag correction that lasts several months. There will be trading opportunities between that Mid-April topping forecast and my forecast for a bottom around mid-September. However, as recommended in April, Index investors and mutual fund investors should have been moving to the sidelines. I am looking for the SP 500 Index to drop to the 920-970 areas by mid-September before the next leg of the Bull market takes off. Now, the one caveat to that forecast is actually a lot more bullish. If the SP 500 can hold the 1100-1110 areas and pivot up strongly, we could move on to new highs. I put the likelihood of that around 20%, so be on guard. A counter-trend rally up in the next few weeks is highly probable, but the evidence continues to suggest working our way down into the 900’s in the SP 500 before the Bull resumes in earnest. We are selectively buying Gold and Biotech stocks in the Active Trading Partners service as well.

Gold has continued higher confirming my April 20th forecast on The Market Trend Forecast of a move from 1125 to 1235 in Gold. The Elliott Wave patterns remain extremely bullish for Gold to continue a 13 Fibonacci year cycle up into 2014. Gold has formed a very bullish pattern intermediately for a move to $1470-$1550 at the next major pivot top. In the interim, I expect continued consolidation in and around my $1,235 US levels before the next pivot high at $1300-$1,325 US. Fiat currencies are burning matches as foreign governments and other entities continue to attempt to put out a fire by printing more paper and covering the same fire with it. Until the analysts on CNBC stop questioning the validity of Gold and start questioning the validity of Fiat Paper, the bull will rage onwards with most of the pundits watching the caboose from the back of the tracks.
