5/1/2022 Markets were lower again this week as most are worried about high Interest Rates and Inflation. The Stock Indices need to hold at the March lows (Support) to remain Bullish.
Unless the FED wants to guarantee a slow down, they will probably “walk back” their aggressive Interest Rate tightening talk on Wednesday. Tammy is dumping stocks on slow down FEARS, but the FEAR technical indicators like the VIX, Stocks below 50-day (Chart above) and high Put / Call ratio say that it is normally too late to Sell.
The major Indices’ weekly charts went from over-bought (Red Zone) to over-sold (Green Zone) in the last month, and most of the strongest Leaders are coming up out of the Green Zones for Money Wave Buy Signals.
Commodity Investments just corrected back down to the 50-day averages for maybe one more bounce up… Then if they don’t make New Highs we could see the dreaded “Double Top” and then a sizable correction. Most of the Tech Stocks are weaker and no longer meet the Green Line Rules.
Currently the tangible Commodities are Way Above the Green Lines, and Bonds are Way Below the Green Lines. Both will eventually return to the Green Lines, so maybe we will see a Stock Market rally when Interest Rates and Inflation fall. (Big surprise for Tammy.)
The Stock Indices need to hold at the March lows (Support) to remain Bullish. We will use Inverse Funds in the next Bear Market, but only SARK and EUM Inverse Funds currently meet the Green Line Rules (and they are now in the Red Zones).
If you continue to Follow the Green Line System, your Money should flow into the Strongest areas and your account value should be able to grow in both Bull and Bear Markets.
More action this week on the Day Trading Scrolling Charts.
We have not had many intra-day Trade Alert signals lately as the Volume has been too Low with the Buy Signals. These low Volume Buy Signals tend to pop up and quickly fade back down. We like to see High Volume on rallies.
For the week the Dow was down 2.54%, the S&P 500 was down 3.30%, and the NASDAQ 100 was down 3.73%. The Long Term Trend for the Indices is up.
The Inflation Index (CRB) was up 1.33% for the week and is Above the Green Line, indicating Economic Expansion.
Bonds were down 0.45% for the week, and are Way Below the Green Line, indicating Economic Expansion.
The US DOLLAR was up 1.75% for the week and is Way Above the Green Line.
MONEY WAVE BUYS SOON
Be patient and WAIT for Green Zone Buy Signals!
