Financial Crisis Bear Market Is Scary Close

Everyone knows something bad is brewing not just in the USA but globally within the financial systems. Most countries are bankrupt, and almost all currencies have been losing value for the past year. Everyone is playing the game of musical chairs and getting creative with how they borrow, lend, create, and steal money in hopes the world does not catch on to just how corrupt and bad things really are.

It’s just a matter of time before we see another financial market meltdown and what I show you here today gives you an idea of just how close we could be to a market collapse.

The financial markets rarely repeat the same type of crisis, but most crisis’ cause the stock market to sell off and crash in the same way. Human nature and emotions do not change, and because traders and investors drive the price action of stocks we are able to profit from bear markets.

In fact, bear markets can be life-changing in a good way for those who know how to trade these market conditions. Because stocks fall 3-7 times faster than they rise, you can generate the same amount of returns someone who invested at the beginning of a 10-year bull market and sold at the top, but you can do this in 8-12 months because of how quickly prices fall.

Three Leading Sectors To Watch
Transports, Industrials, Small-Cap Stocks

The transportation sector refers to the transportation of goods or customers using major and regional airlines, railroads, shipping firms, ocean freight haulers, trucking, etc… It is these companies that see a slow down in the economy before almost everyone else as less shipping is required when sales slow or the economy is tightening using less food, fuel, or buying things in general.

The second sector is industrials. This works much like the transportation sector.

Last but not least is the Russell 2ooo small-cap stock index. These small and volatile stocks are the first to show signs that traders and investors are tightening their risk-reward ratios because they feel the stock market is overpriced and that a bear market could be near, and the last type of stock you want to own during a bear market are small-cap stocks.

2016 – 2019 Custom Chart of Three Sectors
Trans (IYT) + Industrials (XLI) + Russell (IWM) / 3

The chart below shows the recent and current day price action of these three leading sectors. Notice the long multi-year rally into the high of 2018 followed by the sharp distribution selling that warns the big money players unloaded their positions in these leading and leveraged sectors.

The 2019 rally has been strong but when you look at the big picture, the price is far from its 2018 highs and the price pattern is bearish (it points to lower prices) from a technical analysis standpoint.


2004 – 2008 Custom Chart of Three Sectors

The last bull market looks nearly identical in terms of the run-up in price, the top in 2007, and the distribution sell-off in these sectors. The 2008 rally was strong as well, but far from the 2007 highs as well.

What I want you to notice is the fact that these charts have moved nearly the same. Just like I mentioned earlier how bear markets price patterns repeat, so do bull market price patterns. The 2009 price action and 2019 price action are nearly identical and when you see the next chart you will see why the financial market is scary close to the next crisis/bear market.


2009 Market Crash Custom Chart
Trans (IYT) + Industrials (XLI) + Russell (IWM) / 3

Bases on the 2008 weekly chart below the US stock market could be literally 2-6 weeks away from collapsing. What makes this even scarier is that the market liquidity is the worst its been in my 23 years of trading meaning when the selling starts we will likely see some sort of flash crash as we saw in 2008, 2015, and 2018. Price drops so quickly by the time you figure out what you want to do and get your money properly positioned most of the move is already completed.


Eye Opening Gold Miners Charts and Analysis from 2008-09

There are several other really intriguing things happening that further confirm this analysis like how gold miners are outperforming US stocks, the gold : silver ratio above 85, the presidential cycle, the decade cycle and many more. It was actually all these other things that made me review these leading sectors here today. I’ll touch on these other topics in the next few articles later this week

The chart below shows you what the stock market and gold miners did just before the bull market topped and what they did after. Be aware, if you’re a gold bug you may not like this chart but you can’t argue with the truth of what miners did during the bear market and other bear markets for that matter.

Concluding Thoughts:

In short, the bear market has been a long time coming, but finally, almost all the signs are showing that it’s about to start. As a technical analyst since 1997 having lost a fortune and making a fortune from bull and bear markets I have a good understanding of how to best attack the market during its various stages.

Predictive Modeling Suggest Oil Headed Much Lower

Our Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) predictive price modeling system is suggesting Crude Oil will likely continue to find resistance near $64 as a price ceiling and trend lower over the next 3 to 5 months – eventually breaking below the $40 price level near the end of 2019 or in early 2020.

Our research team believes this move could very well be contingent on a continued decline in global economic activity as well as our research suggesting that global currencies could be setting up for a breakdown event.

The USA and FED will do everything in their powers to keep the economy looking strong and to hold markets up like talking about rate cuts, but eventually the music will stop, but until then we need to be long and strong stocks and keep a close eye on leading indicators like small caps, oil, transportation and industrial sectors for early warning signs.

Please read the following research posts for more information:

Report #1: PART III – DEBT CRISIS TO BE REBORN IN 2020

Report #2: KING DOLLAR RIDES HIGHER CREATING PRESSURES ON FOREIGN ECONOMIES

Report #3: FEAR DRIVES MARKET EXPECTATIONS

We believe the breakdown in support for Crude Oil will coincide with a general perception of global economic weakness, foreign Central Bank posturing and the possibility that foreign currency weakness may push global demand for Oil much lower than current expectations.

The volatility increased suggested near the right side of this chart, in late 2019 and early 2020, are indicative of oil prices reaching a critical support level while attempting to re-balance supply/demand-side economic factors against historic price lows.  This will likely become a period where global oil traders feel the need to try to push oil prices higher while supply/demand factors settle to establish a basis price level for future price trends.

IN CONCLUSION:

If our ADL predictive modeling is correct, we will see rotation between $47 and $64 over the next 3+ months before a breakdown in price hits in November 2019.  This will be followed by two fairly narrow price range months (December 2019 and January 2020) where oil prices will tighten near $45 to $50.  After that tightening, we believe an extremely volatile price move will happen in February through April 2020 that could see oil prices trade as low as $22 and as high as $51 over a two to three-month span.

As we’ve continued to state, 2019 and 2020 are going to include incredible opportunities for skilled technical traders and investors.  Think about how a more like this in Oil and the global markets will reflect into the precious metals markets and the US Dollar?

UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY

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

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.

US Fed Leaves Rates Unchanged – The Shake-Out Begins

The US Federal Reserve announced today they are leaving rates unchanged based on their latest meeting.  The markets should take this as a sign of relief.  Yet, hear all-time highs and expecting the Fed may actually decrease rates a bit, the market reacted with quiet price rotation near these highs.

The US Fed could have shaken up the markets even more, but we believe this move by the Fed will be interpreted as “Fed Uneasiness” with regards to the overall US and global economy at the moment.  A failure to prompt a rate increase could be seen as weakness by the Fed and uneasiness over the fragility of the US and Global economies.  Once this shake-out settles, the markets will go back to doing what the markets always do – interpreting future fair values.

The $INDU rotated much lower today, ending the day almost exactly at a key support channel level (the YELLOW line).  Further price weakness could push the $INDU below $26,000 fairly easily if the current high price level is fragile and weak.  Price rotation is one of the most basic aspects of all price activity.  The price must rotate in order to establish new price highs or lows.  As volatility decreased over the past 30+ days, it would not be unexpected to see price retest the $26,000 level, or lower, in an attempt to resume a price trend or re-establish price support before attempting another move higher.

 

The move in the NQ today was much broader than the move in the $INDU.  The Technology heavy NASDAQ 100 rotated downward, below the historical price support channel, and is currently resting just above the previous all-time price high near $7724.  Again, the Fed’s inaction may be interpreted as an expectation of market weakness over the next few months.  Thus, traders reacted to this move by interpreting this weakness in the Fed to raise rates by selling.

Overall, leaving rates unchanged may be very healthy for the US and global economies.  The US Dollar continues to strengthen and this shake-out may be just what is needed before the Summer season for the price to continue trending.

We’ve recently warned that the US major Indexes are nearing our Fibonacci upside price targets and that we believe the upside price move may continue for another 20+ days still.  This current rotation may be very short-lived – possibly only 5~10 days of lower/sideways price action before trends resume an upside price bias.  Time will tell.

Overall, our prediction that a shake-out was about to happen appears to be unfolding just days after we made the claim.  Our longer-term analysis is still the same – continued upside price bias as earnings and fundamentals drive prices closer to our Fibonacci price targets before any bigger price reversal may set up sometime in July/Aug 2019.
