Who Said Traders and Investor are Emotional Right Now?

Nearing the end of 2019, our research team continues to attempt to dissect the market rally in an effort to present credible research and timely insights to skilled technical traders.  We recently authored a research article discussing the potential that the US Stock market is less than 2.5% away from a major resistance level that could prompt a massive market top.  You can read our research related to these Fibonacci Price Amplitude Arcs here.

This recent research leads us to revisit the recent blow-off rotation in recent markets.  The typical market cycle moves from through these cycles Stealth Phase, the Awareness Phase, the Mania Phase and finally to the Blow-Off Phase.  The Stealth Phase is where the smart money pours into the market taking advantage of undervalued assets/equities.  The Awareness phase is where more traditional and retail investors pile into assets that have formed traditional bottom formation and started to rally.  The Mania Phase is when enthusiasm and greed take over and when the market moves higher in a parabolic price mode – ultimately reaching a massive top.  Then, we start the Blow-Off Phase which usually starts with a deep “R” type price rotation – followed by extended selling.

We’ve seen these types of market phases play out over the past 20+ years multiple times.  The DOTCOM market breakdown, the 2009 Credit Market Crisis, and the 2017 BITCOIN breakdown.  One of the clearest examples in history was the 1929 Stock Market Crash.

The effort of our research team is to highlight the recent rally mode in the US stock market after the 2018 US Stock Market rotation (January 2018 and August 2018).  If you pay very close attention to the details of these actual price rotations in the examples below, you’ll notice that every ultimate peak happened after a period of moderately deep price rotation and an extended upside price rally (an exhaustion rally).  In every example, this rotation setup the exhaustion rally which ultimately set up the massive price peak/top.

We believe the rotation in the US stock market in 2018 exhibited the exact same price setup and the current upside price rally is the exhaustion rally that will ultimately set up a massive price peak/top.  We’ve highlighted our research team’s expectations in the S&P500 chart below.

The fact that this potential price peak aligns with our GREEN Fibonacci price amplitude arc presents another clear example that massive resistance exists near 3200 in the S&P.  The phases of the extended market rally, lasting just over 10 years now, align nearly perfectly with the previous examples of major market tops and a Blow-Off Phase.

Our research team believes the resistance level near 3200 on the S&P will likely result in a downside price rotation setting up an “R” type price move.  Once this completes, a Blow-Off phase could begin rather quickly.  We believe the expansion of the markets has reached a point well past a euphoric phase and the rotation in 2018 setup the perfect exhaustion rally phase.  We believe it is just a matter of time at this point before the Blow-Off phase begins.

We would be surprised if the S&P rallied far beyond the 3200 price level before setting up the “R” price rotation.  We believe the first 3 to 5 months of 2020 will create the “R” price setup before broader market concerns take hold – potentially bursting investor enthusiasm.

All this could be the start of the next real estate crash we explain here.

Don’t miss these next moves in the markets.  Our research goes beyond traditional types of analysis and our research team is dedicated to helping you protect your assets and wealth.

In short, rotations in ETFs, such as this potential move in WOOD, will continue to set up and rotate throughout the 2020 election event and beyond we’ll keep you informed as this plays out with Wealth Building & Global Financial Reset Newsletter.

Gapping Rotation in SPY and News Based Rallies Are A Warning

As holiday trading sets up in the global markets, the SPY is starting to show signs of volatility and warning of a potential top by gapping as price attempts to trade sideways.  This type of top formation, along with the fact that the overnight REPO facility continues to roil the markets, continues to draw our researchers to the conclusion that some type of debt or liquidity issue is just below the surface of the global markets.

We believe the topping formation in the SPY may be a sign that the holiday trading, normally spanning from just before Thanksgiving to sometime after January 10th or 15th, may prompt a very volatile price rotation in the global markets.  The lack of liquidity in the market at this time often leads to fairly narrow ranges in price.  Yet we are seeing volatility continue to stay somewhat high at this time and the REPO issue hangs over the heads of nearly every investor at this time.

One of our friends, an ex-Chicago floor trader, wrote to us just a few days ago suggesting he was receiving phone calls from many friends and associates in the US and overseas about the REPO issue.  We believe this issue is now taking root as a concern for global investors and could become a major issue for the markets going forward into 2020.  Our friend’s suggestion was to “buy gold and to pair back equity positions”.

This SPY Daily chart highlights the GAPS in price that has our research team concerned. A breakdown below $308 would qualify as a new Bearish Price Trend.  If the most recent gap is filled to the downside, the price may begin to accelerate lower, confirming our analysis.

On the flip side of that scenario, is a breakout above $315 that can hold for a couple of days or into the end of the week. That would trigger a new uptrend and possibly a Santa Rally.

This Weekly YM chart highlights the Hangman pattern set up last week with a very long lower wick.  This pattern set up at the price high is very indicative of a topping formation.  The fact that it set up just below the GREEN Bullish Price Trigger level near $28,175 suggests this level is acting as resistance.  A breakdown in price near this level could prompt a move to levels below 26,000.

Traders need to stay cautious over the next 5+ weeks as the lack of volatility in the market may prompt some very big price moves.  We believe the REPO issue may have some legs in the future and we believe a rotation may begin before Christmas 2019.

If liquidity continues to diminish, a flash crash type of event would not be uncommon.  We believe there are serious risks of a downward price rotation in the works and urge our followers and members to prepare for unknown risks over the next 5+ weeks.

Normal trading volume will not likely start to pick back up till after January 15th.  We have at least 4+ weeks of unknowns to contend with in a very illiquid market. We are going to trade with the short term market trends and be agile going into the new year.

S&P 500 & BOND TREND – DECEMBER 13

The stock market was setting up a topping pattern the past couple weeks but that has now been negated. The charts/technicals are bullish and so are we it’s that simple really.

Yesterday more chatter of tariffs and other news sparked a strong equities rally at the open bell which sent stocks sharply higher while bonds corrected. With yesterday’s S&P 500 hitting new highs after a fear-based correction two weeks ago the market is now back in rally mode and should have enough energy to sustain a rally into the year-end.

While we trade based on technical analysis, there will be days when news hitting the market and causes some large moves on the same day we have technical buy or sell signals. Like yesterday, for example, The past couple of trading sessions we have been talking about how the S&P 500 has to hie new highs to kick things back into a new uptrend after the previous week’s price correction. Yesterday, the SP500 broke to new highs, while bonds broke down triggering a new breakout rally in stocks. Sure there was news to help push price higher but none the less all our analysis has confirmed for the buy trigger.

We touch on other markets or news from time to time but we do not take any of the news into consideration for our trades. While there are many warning signs out there pointing to dark times ahead for the financial markets like the Repo market and many others, the reality is we follow the price, not the news. The market is climbing a wall of worry among educated traders and investors, and that’s what the market does best and we can’t fight it. Eventually, the price will turn down for a mega bear market and we will be there to profit from it, until then we ride the fearful rally higher.

Trader Predicts Assets Direction With This Forward-Looking Indicator

Great traders are often the result of dedication to principle, theory, price study, and a solid understanding of Intermarket market dynamics.  The one thing that can’t be taught, though, is experience behind the screens and with the markets.

The longer a trader spends working with the charts, trading the markets and studying the trends/indicators, the more knowledge, experience, and capability that trader has in being able to see and predict future price moves.

We believe it is the same way with other professions in life – a professional race car driver, a professional pilot or ship captain.  Any profession where an individual is “at the helm” of some vehicle, instrument or live-action event, that individual will, over time, hone his/her skills to be able to foresee and manage certain aspects of the live operation better than someone without the experience.

One might want to call this a “sixth-sense”, but we believe it is simply applied knowledge and experience.  These individuals see and feel things that others simply miss or brush off as unimportant.

Trading is the same way and traders will become better and more skilled by following the charts very closely and watching how price reacts to geopolitical and regional economic events.

One of our primary price modeling tools is what we call the V10.  It has gone through a number of revisions over the years and is capable of running on almost any chart, in any time-frame.

What we learn from using this tool is when and how price rotates, confirms trend changes, sets up new triggers and more.  It also helps us to identify price cycles, when we should add-to positions, trim profits or expect a new market rally or correction.

V10 TREND TRADING STRATEGY – AVERAGE TRADE 45 DAYS

As we expand the use of the V10 price modeling system into other markets, you’ll see how changes in price trends can assist us in seeing into the future and preparing for price rotation that others may miss completely.

NATURAL GAS V10 CHART ANALYSIS

This NG chart highlights a number of price trend rotations (from RED to ORANGE to GREEN, or from GREEN to ORANGE to RED).  Each time the color leaves a primary trend color (GREEN OR RED) we have an early warning signal that price rotation is setting up.

You can see the initial uptrend in late August we set up by a RED to ORANGE trend change.  The same thing happened in late October.  Now, a GREEN to ORANGE trend change setup near mid-November warning us that NG was going to move lower in the future.

These types of setups appear in all types of charts, asset classes, and time-frames and soon we will make different versions available so we have long term investing, trend trading, swing trading, and momentum trader signals.

THE POWER OF CYCLES WITHIN PRICE ACTION

When attempting to interpret price modeling systems or indicators with cycle analysis utilities, it is important to understand that cycles don’t drive price moves.  Price moves drive cycle rotations.  Knowing when price cycles are topping or bottoming can assist traders in understanding where and when new trade setups are viable and when to trim profits off existing trades.

If we know when the most active and relevant cycle is trending, topping or bottoming and the expected cycle length for a potential price trend, then we can make a more informed determination about the viability of the trade setup and risk factors.

We are also able to use the price modeling systems and cycle modeling systems to better understand how far price may move, when we may begin to see price weakness in the trend and other important factors to help us manage our trade properly and reduce risks.  This is where things get really interesting and exciting.

EXAMPLE SP500 PREDICTED PRICE MOVE

HOW I PREDICT FUTURE PRICE MOVEMENT

This last chart shows you the price of Natural Gas futures.  We have overlaid our proprietary Cycle Modeling tool onto it so you can clearly see how the price has moved in alignment with the cycles.  Follow the LIGHT BLUE cycle line on the chart and try to understand that the range/height of the cycle lines does not correlate to price levels.  They represent the “intensity” of the cycle peak or trough.

A higher peak on the cycle line suggests this upside cycle peak has a higher intensity/probability than a lower cycle peak.  We gauge these rotations as a measure of intensity or amplitude.  Lower cycle troughs suggest a price bottom may have more intensity/amplitude in price than a moderately higher cycle trough.

Follow the three-cycle lows starting near early October on this chart.  Each of them resulted in deeper Cycle troughs on our Cycle modeling tool.  Yet, the real price reaction was to set up a small inverted Head-n-Shoulders bottom pattern.  The last cycle trough low didn’t result in a deeper price level, but it did result in the completion of the bottom pattern that prompted an immediate upside price rally – more intensity.

We’ve also highlighted some of our most recent trades related to our analysis using the V10 and our Cycle modeling tool.  +35% over the past 4 months on three successful trades – we’re pretty happy about that.

Also, keep in mind that we are not showing you what the cycle modeling tool or the V10 is predicting for the future.  We reserve that for our valued subscribers/members.  We know where the cycle and other predictive modeling systems are telling us the price will go, but we can’t share it with you (yet).

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Since 2001, our focus has been on learning and mastering the tools we have developed and use as well as the Cycle Modeling tools so that we can follow the markets more closely, learn to provide better opportunities and attempt to identify the highest probability trades for our members.

What we never expected was that our efforts to study, learn and apply these tools would provide us with that “sixth-sense” ability to attempt to see into the future and to attempt to predict 10 to 20+ days into the future.

Our modeling tools share opportunities with us all over the markets and across multiple instruments and time-frames.  We recently posted our gold and gold miners price/cycle forecast here. We focus on Daily and 30-minute intervals for our members, but we see these opportunities across all levels intervals – from 1 minute all the way to monthly/quarterly.

The one thing we are certain of is that our members continually write to us about how important it is to them to have us explain the setups, trends, cycles and future market implications to them in our daily market videos.  They don’t have to try to learn to do this type of cycle research on their own, we give them the details every morning before the markets open and any trade signal we have for SP500, gold, oil, nat gas, bonds, and more.

Natural Gas Moves Into Basing Zone

After an incredible rally in Natural Gas that our researchers called perfectly in November 2018, another opportunity for an upside price move appears to be setting up for later this year. We believe the current price lows, near $2.30, are setting up for a bounce and then will drop and form a basing pattern near $2.00 before rocketing higher.  It is this last move to the downside which will set up the incredibly deep price base and oversold conditions for the upside price move in late August/September 2019.

We’re issuing this research post to alert all of our followers to our research and to allow for proper price rotation for this base to set up and conclude before jumping into any false triggers that may occur on the Daily or Weekly charts.

Start by taking a look at this Monthly NG chart showing how extended high price peaks are usually followed by extended price declines.  It is very unlikely that any upside price move will begin before late August or early September 2019.

In fact, our data mining utilities confirm this by suggesting that June, July, and August are all typically lower price months by a factor of 1.5:1 and 2:1 mostly over the past 24 years. September is the first monthly data point to break this cycle with a positive historical price bias of nearly 9:1.

Therefore, the closer we get to September 2019, the more likely we are going to see a basing in price near $2.00 (or below) and traders would be wise to prepare for this move before it happens.

Our Weekly Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting a moderate move upward of about $0.25 is likely over the next few weeks before price may rotate lower, again, and attempt to fall below the $2.25 level as it continues to rotate towards the ultimate base.

Our researchers believe the ultimate price base will be near $2.00 (roughly between $1.85 and $2.15) as our Weekly Fibonacci modeling tool is suggesting.  After price establishes the new price peak in late June, we’ll have more data to compare for the proper location of the ultimate price base.

This Daily chart highlights our expectations for NG over the next few weeks – fairly strong potential for a move higher, above $2.50, where the price will stall and reverse back to the downside.  Ultimately, this peak will turn out to be nothing more than required price rotation to support the ultimate base pattern setup later in August or September 2019.

Don’t get too excited about Natural Gas just yet.  The setup and future trade are in the process of creating a deep price base that will likely end near late August or early September 2019.  We believe September 2019 will be the breakout month for NG as a price advance really takes hold.  If historical data is any guide, the 9:1 upside bias of September following the 1.4:1 downside bias of August suggests that the September upside price move could push NG prices well above $3.50 or $4.00 very quickly.

Index Trading Signals for Momentum, Swing, and Trend Following

Since 2001 I have been refining my index trading skills and strategies in the hope that one day I would provide a steady stream of trades and income and possibly even be able to automate the trading for me.

Now, 18 years later I have made most of these dreams/goals come true with a robust trading system that makes trading momentum drops and pops, swing trading, and trend following really simple. While it’s not 100% complete, and likely never will be as I’m always working on adapting things work with the everchanging markets, it is something I’m really proud of and excited to share with fellow traders. Over the next month or so I will be pushing to get this new application running for members to watch and receive the trade alerts.

Take a look at this year’s chart of the system which really is incredible, but the rally the market is experiencing is also not the norm in terms of price action.

 

The next chart shows the most recent trade taken this Thursday and the first momentum trade target was hit in less than 24 hours for a quick 2.5% profit on the SP500.

 

To make things even more exciting this strategy works well with high momentum stocks and the most recent trade we took on CPRX we locked in 10% from our entry price as shown below.

 

I am about to launch a new technology product to assist our members like this one explained above, where we can highlight our proprietary price modeling systems complete with all the trade signals (entry, stops, targets). This added analysis and trade signals are bonus value added for our loyal followers.

If you want to stay ahead of these markets moves and find greater success in 2019 and beyond, then Join www.TheTechnicalTraders.com today.

 

EXTRA UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY

First, we typically see stocks sell-off and as the old saying goes, “Sell in May and Go Away!”

So what does this mean? It means we should start to see money flow into the safe-haven assets like the Utility sector, bonds, and most importantly precious metals.

Second, my birthday is this month, and I think its time I open the doors for a once a year opportunity for everyone to get a gift that could have some considerable value in the future.

For May I am going to give away and ship out silver rounds to anyone who buys a 1-year, or 2-year subscription to my Wealth Trading Newsletter for the first 25 subscribers. You can upgrade to this longer-term subscription or if you are new, join one of these two plans, and you will receive:
