The SP500 index (US Stock Market) has now officially exited its up trend. It can be argued that the stock market is either in a stage 3 topping phase or a stage 4 decline.Either way, it’s not good for buy and hold investors.
The major trend line on the chart below has been broken in a big way. The AlgoTrades INNER-Market Analysis tell us to be sitting pretty in cash, or short the market so you can profit from falling prices over the next 6- 18 months.
I do fear a global economic collapse is possible which I talk about in ourETF Trading Newsletter – TheGoldAndOilGuy. In August we started investing in funds that will rise as the stock market falls in value. If you need help with this be sure to check out that newsletter.
S&P 500 Quarterly Chart – BIGGER PICTURE
This chart I feel provides a great perspective on the overall market trend and price patterns. This is the 70 year historical chart. I hope something like this unfolds. Fingers crossed to a nominal 12 month correction/bear market. This will build a new base for the next super cycle.
US Dollar has now reached the upper resistance trend line… we could see weakness in the dollar going forward… Keep in mind this is a quarterly chart, lower prices may still be a few months away.
Stock Market Rises with Fewer Stocks – RED FLAG
Since mid 2014 the US stock market has become move volatile. Fewer stocks participating in the markets move up. This can be seen by comparing the percent of stocks trading above their 200 day moving average and the S&P 500 index.
Last issue I stated “Once the stock market comes to a complete stall it will drop violently.”
What we saw from August 20 – 24th was the break of the bulls back… The market always has a way to keep average investors bullish and left holding the bag of overprices stocks when the music stops. The market could very well rally here and test recent highs or possibly make a new high to be sure investors remain bullish to buy into the next wave of distribution selling.
