Good morning Traders,

Friday’s bounce on very light volume is setting up the potential next weak
day.  The challenge with it being Monday is it’s month end.  Last
Thursday’s action showed just how much damage can be caused by one of the FANG
member stocks having a bad day.  Looking through those stocks, if selling
picks up, they’ll likely drive the Qs down to the 128 level – and that’s just
for starters.

Here’s a view of our seasonal charts to gain perspective on the action in the
month ahead – following our standard priority of stocks, bonds, dollar, gold,
oil, and nat gas.

qqq seasonality


US Dollar Seasonality

gold seasonality

oil seasonality

nat gas seasonality

Conditions are right for a correction – stocks are in a seasonal sideways to
weak period through 10/1 and bonds are also in a window where they show seasonal
strength.  One caveat there is the Fed reducing it’s QE bloated balance
sheet.  They technically have t sell enough but not manufacture a
crash.  We could even see bonds go down, with stocks, driving rates
up.  Do you think the economy is ready for that?  Someone always
has to ruin the party.  And this time it’s the Fed.

Add in that gold is in a seasonal strong period and showing strength and that
further supports weak markets.  Oil is a wild card as inventories dry
up.  Oil prices could melt up for a while as the weak dollar makes oil
cheaper around the globe.  Thus the push into international markets over US

Nat Gas remains difficult to trade.  I’ll do a full review of our
indicators on Nat Gas (it isn’t called the widow maker for nothing) to see if we
can gain some leverage on what’s driving the trade there.  Still looks to
be forming some sort of double bottom and retest of the Feb 2016 lows, which
could make a good trade.

Stock market bottom

The relationship between stocks and bonds is key to interpreting and predicting future price action. The view is that the bond market is so much larger than the stock market, that money flowing in and out of bonds causes movement in other vehicles, such as stocks.

Take a look at the following momentum chart of the QQQ versus Bonds (in the form of TLT) :


What you can see is initial peaks in the relative action cause markets to pause. The second peak – whether it’s higher or lower, tells you if momentum is shifting.

Where are we now? We’ve had our initial peak in Stocks bouncing relative to Bonds and we’re working on the second peak. We at expect a bearish divergence to set up the next move lower in the markets. Bonds will bounce, gold will bounce and risky assets will fall. But this action will ultimately set up the next best buying opportunity for the stock market! So stay tuned!

Good evening Traders,
As we’ve pointed out in the past, periodically, reversals align with expiration.  And this week should
be no different as it rolls into expiration this Friday.  We have a lot of charts to go through today, so let’s dig right
First – the situation in index options is changing rapidly…

And there’s a corresponding move in equity options:

The indicator above suggests we’re close to a bottom in the short term.
Moving on to the economy:
Bonds are getting extended (This is bullish for stocks).
The dollar is getting overbought and momentum is slowing – this would be bullish for the Nasdaq.
While we’re looking at the dollar, what about Gold?
This is a neat chart that shows the extent that markets can sell off, but we’re at a relative

Our QQQ indicator is also pointing lower, but getting extended in the short term.

The market is at a point where I like to say, the rubber meets the road.  If we’re going to crash,
we’ll do it this week into Friday.  But given the time of the and the coordination with our forecast for 2014 – we’re more likely
to see prices stabilize and rally early this week into expiration.  Then as we enter the final two weeks of the year, prices should further stabilize
into a year end top. 
Oil is starting to look good here, but we’re not inclined to catch that falling knife.  A few call options
though could prove lucrative longer term.  You can get some February calls pretty cheap (which we’ll recommend when we see a
Gold should be cranking, but the absence of the move and positioning of some of the bets in gold suggest further
weakness.  Not ready to make that bet yet – but preparing to.
We’ll give up a little of our QQQ gains to remain positioned for this bounce as the move has efficiently built
energy and the underlying action in the market to form a bottom is starting to initiate right on schedule with expiration.
We’re about to publish our year end models for 2015 and the year end is setting up for a very significant trade and we want as many
people to be on board as possible.  We’ve been writing this advisory for over 10 years, so we would love to prove our value to you and have you as a

Good Sunday morning Traders,

There remains in the market a significant divergence between the action in the NYSE and the Nasdaq.  The Qs have been selling off and the SPY have been holding on.  We have two indicators that focus on both markets.

For the NYSE – my first algorithm that I created is here:

NYSE Market Timing

This indicator is in the middle of the range, which basically means that we have NO idea where it’s going, but that the likelihood of a larger move lower is growing.  We saw this back in 2011 a couple of times, and that’s my expectation as our next Key Reversal Date is 4/10 (from our cycle research).

Next is the Barometer for the QQQ/Nasdaq – in 2005, we migrated from a timing service on the SPY to the QQQ to take advantage of the added beta (which you can leverage further now with margin or leveraged ETFs.)

Nasdaq Market Timing

As you can see, we’re at a similar level as the previous bottom.  The market tried to reverse on Friday, but late day (computer) selling pushed us back towards lows.  Is this quarter end manipulation?  We won’t know until next week.  So while I expect a move lower into the 4/10 period.  If I’m wrong, it would be even more bearish for the markets to rally into 4/10.  If that happens, we’ll get a buy signal next week and ride the move – with a little fear that we’re picking up dimes in front of a steam roller.

Good morning Traders,

Here’s an indicator from my morning article – the Daily Stock Barometer:

This is a basic indicator that tells a significant story – and the story here is that we have more selling to come before we mark a bottom here.
