08/25/2019: Markets were down for the week, after failing to Close above the Red Line (50-day avg.) The S&P 500 Index is boxed between the Green Line (250-day avg.) and the Red Line (50-day avg.). A BIG move should occur when the Index breaks above or below one of these averages.
The 2 FEAR Trades (Bonds and Gold) are very extended and look like they could finally start correcting back down to their Green Lines. FEAR is a temporary human emotion and does not last that long, so this could be Bullish for Stocks if the FEAR subsides. (A Trade Deal coming?)
For our members that are worried about a continued Trade War, let’s Follow the Money and the Green Line Rules. The Small Cap Index is Below the Green Line + 30 Relative Strength. The INVERSE Small Cap Fund has just popped up in the filter and is Above the Green Line + 80 Relative Strength required by the Rules for major Indices. This CHART compares the 2 Funds, and if the Markets do turn Bearish later this year, we will Follow the Money and roll into Inverse Funds. Inverse Funds can do very well in declining Markets, but it is too early for most.
For the week the Dow was down 1.00%, the S&P 500 was down 1.38%, and the Nasdaq 100 was down 1.84%. The Long Term Trend on the Stock Markets is UP.
The Inflation Index (CRB) was down 1.05% and is Below the Green Line, indicating Economic Weakness.
Bonds were down 0.12% for the week and are Way Above the Green Line, indicating Economic Weakness.
The US DOLLAR was down 0.53%, but it could be having a huge Double Top from 3 years ago.
