With This Market, Mistrust Until Verified

But play both sides. Which is what we’re doing.

Broad market indicators say the market is going higher, but cycle screens say, “Whoa, not so fast.” I don’t know which to believe yet, but our chart picks have us playing both sides, with 6 longs and 5 shorts, in position to profit either way. That’s a little less long than it was. With all the market uncertainty, it has been a profitable strategy to follow over the past 3 weeks.

This report has all the details on how to trade the mistrust.

Short in the Short Run, Long in the Longer

Short term cycles are in down phases. There are a couple of clear parameters to watch for signs of whether this will get worse or not. Intermediate cycles appear to be topping out. Again, there are clear parameters to watch for confirmation.

But the long term indications remain bullish, with a brand new price and time projection for the bull market high. It won’t make bears happy, but our chart picks still have 4 shorts along with 7 longs. The bull is no longer a monolith, but it only takes a few big stocks to carry the market averages higher.

Bulls Come Back to Work

The long holiday weekend has ended and bulls are back at their desks.

Bullish on Biden’s growing lead in the polls, right? Because when the market was going down 2 weeks ago, the papers said that was because the market feared Biden. I guess traders switched sides, because the charts sure look bullish again all of a sudden.

Wow.

Here’s what to look for to signal that this is for real. Along with a few ideas on how to ride it.

Wild, Woolly, Illiquid

Last week was wild and wooly. The volatility suggests illiquidity, which at this stage is not bullish. It’s consistent with the idea I’ve espoused in Liquidity Trader reports that the Fed not supplying sufficient liquidity to support an uptrend.

But the technical stuff says, “Ay! Not so fast!”

Old Bears Never Die, They Just Get Eaten Alive

Cycle alignments are still mostly bullish, but now extended. The 6 month cycle remains bullish, and already stratospheric cycle projections for the S&P and QQQ have gone even higher.

How much more can an erstwhile bear take? How much more should they? Here are some suggestions.

Bullish as Hell, But Wait! What’s This?

The Fed is no longer pumping enough money into dealer accounts to sustain bull markets in both stocks and bonds, and it has tried to steer investors out of stocks and into Treasuries. It doesn’t matter. Rising markets create their own liquidity until they don’t. It’s called margin. Technical analysis shows us the effects of that, tells us what the trend is, and indicates when it might be reversing.

The trend is up, and there’s no sign of reversal yet. However, after reviewing my chart pick screens I came up with twice as many shorts as longs. Is that my bias, or are those individual charts trying to tell us something, the first canary singing?

Here’s what we’re watching.
