Why Gold’s Consolidation Is Probably Not Benign

Gold came within 16 points of its last 9-12 month cycle projection. It now appears to have topped out and entered a flat down phase. However… Non-subscribers click here for access.

June Swoon Called Off

Fed balance sheet and banking data, along with Treasury supply data had previously shown the prospect for some stock market weakness around the enormous expected end of May Treasury coupon settlement. I warned about it in our last update of this data on May 13, which was headlined, “Why Sell in May and Go Away.”  Non-subscribers, click here for access.

Last week, the Treasury confirmed the amount of the settlement that I had estimated. Over the past few days, we’ve begun to see the effects of that in stocks and bonds. But how bad will it be? This report answers that question, and shows you why.

Primary Dealers Get a Break from Impending Doom

Headline Corrected

The storm warnings of extreme dealer leverage have dissipated over the past two months. For the moment, the skies are only partly cloudy with a chance of showers, but no sign of any big storms. They’re still over the horizon. Non-subscribers, click here for access.

Dealers are required to buy a significant percentage of every Treasury offering by the deal they made with the devil to be its Primary Dealers. And those offerings keep coming in a never-ending tide. But they were sharply curtailed from late March through early May by the annual tax collection bulge. Those collections enable the US Treasury to pay down debt over that period. That reduction in supply accrues to the benefit of the dealers. It enabled them to not only reduce leverage, but also to add to hedges as the accumulate inventory. So over the past two months they have taken the opportunity to get a little healthier than they were through early this year. Non-subscribers, click here for access.

We know from our other reports on the Fed’s balance sheet and the banking system that the time when trouble is likely is when the Fed’s RRP slush fund runs out. It’s been holding in the 400-500 billion range, but as T-bill issuance picks up it will begin to diminish. We’ll watch that data as always and will keep an eye on the dealers’ positions as the other signs of impending doom begin to appear. Right now, they’re on hold. Non-subscribers, click here for access.

Swing Trade Screen Picks – Plunging

No, the market isn’t plunging. I’m plunging on the buy side.  Non-subscribers click here for access.

Technical Trader subscribers click here to download the complete report.

List performance was positive last week. Including picks still open at the end of the week plus those stopped out during the week, the list had an average gain of 2.3% with an average holding period of 18 calendar days. That compared with the previous week’s average gain of 1.5% with an average holding period of 17 calendar days.  Non-subscribers click here for access.

The latest screens resulted in 79 stocks meeting preliminary buy side criteria versus only 18 on the sell side. That compares with 74 buys and 32 sells the week before. Sells have all but disappeared, and buys are holding steady at a low level.  Non-subscribers click here for access.

Next, I counted the signals that were triggered on Friday alone. After applying these trigger filters, just one of the 11 sells qualified on Friday, while 11 of the buys did. That does not signify broad thrust, but it’s a bigger number than we have seen lately. I liked 7 of the buys enough to take flyers and add to the list. The one sell that triggered had a nice ugly chart, so I will also add that one on the sell side. I will start tracking as of Tuesday this week, with Monday having been a holiday.  Non-subscribers click here for access.

Three picks hit stop prices last week. Dropping those and adding the 8 new ones, will leave 10 buys and 2 shorts on the list for this week. The 10 buys is a big number relative to the last couple of months, but consistent with the numbers in the past when the market was trending.  Non-subscribers click here for access.

I have added or adjusted stops for several existing picks. New picks are added without stops. Risk management is assumed via multiple small positions that won’t break the bank if they go wrong.  Non-subscribers click here for access.

For all picks closed out in April the average gain was 15.2% on an average holding period of 34 calendar days. Of those 7 were buys and 4 were shorts. 9 of the 11 picks closed out were profitable.  Non-subscribers click here for access.

Low Confidence, Limited Risk, Tilted Buy

List performance was slightly positive last week, but underperformed the market. Including picks still open at the end of the week, plus those stopped out during the week, the list had an average gain of 1.5% with an average holding period of 17 calendar days. This compares with the prior week’s drawdown of -0.4% on an average holding period of 15 calendar days. Non-subscribers click here for access.

The screening data lately has not kept up with the strength in the market averages, which are dominated by a few stocks. Non-subscribers click here for access.

The latest screens ferreted out 74 stocks that met buy side criteria on Friday before the trigger test. That was up from 32, the week before. There were just 14 sells versus 41 the week before. While the buys had a solid edge, it was not broad strength. Non-subscribers click here for access.

Next, I counted the signals that were triggered on Friday alone. After applying the trigger filters, none of the 14 sells hit their triggers on Friday, while 4 of the buys did. I liked two of them enough to add to the list and start tracking as of Monday. Non-subscribers click here for access.

With the 2 new picks and an existing pick stopped out last week, that will leave 5 buys and 2 shorts on the list for this week. 7 picks remains a low number relative to the 11 to 20 that we’ve typically had in recent months. This indicates low confidence and suggests limiting exposure. Non-subscribers click here for access.

5/6/24 For all picks closed out in April the average gain was 15.2% on an average holding period of 34 calendar days. Of those 7 were buys and 4 were shorts. 9 of the 11 picks close out were profitable. Non-subscribers click here for access.

Swing Trade Screen Picks – No Way!

List performance turned negative last week after more than 2 straight months of weekly gains. Including picks still open at the end of the week, plus those stopped out during the week, the list had an average drawdown of -0.4% on an average holding period of 15 calendar days. That compared with the prior week holding an average gain of 1.8% on an average holding period of 15 days. And that was down from an average gain of 7.8%. We could say that it’s early yet as the transition has been underway to a new set of trades, but that would bely the fact that there just don’t seem to be any good setups around.    Non-subscribers click here for access.
