Short-term Indicant Stock Market Report Summary

Short-term Indicant Stock Market Report Summary

Fri-May 25-Despite last Tuesday’s strong stock market bearishness, the major indices finished bullishly for the week. Those adding to their hold positions from last Monday’s new bull signals actually enjoyed last Tuesday’s strong stock market bearishness since prices were lower for the additional buying. Trade tensions and a very bearish agriculture sector is constraining the stock market bull at this point. International sectors are increasingly bearish, encumbering the stock market bull for full domination along the near-term cycle.

 

Thu-May 24-Same as yesterday.

 

Wed-May 23-The stock market bull remains a bit timid with increasing trade tensions and the agricultural supply chain bearishness along with the constant irrational impeachment chit-chat being conveyed by extraordinary stupid people among politicians and a host of experts of unknown character.

 

Tue-May 22-Strong stock market bearishness facilitated lower buying prices from yesterday’s new bull signals.

 

Mon-May 21-Several new bull signals were triggered today, as they crossed above the near-term blue curve with non-declining force. Near-term bullish unanimity remains absent with the DJU-(Chart) persistent bearishness. However, the most impressive bull is the S&P600-(Chart) Index, which is configured with desirable bullish attributes.

Volume 05, Issue 11 ISSN 1526 6516 Short-term Indicant

© The Indicant Stock Market Report

 

Short-term Indicant Stock Market Report Summary

Fri-May 18-The stock market bull’s continued resistance to bearish ambition, stimulated by the Deep State, should discourage the stock market bear. However, the DJU-(Chart) continues expressing pure stock market bearishness along both the near-term and quick-term cycle.  On the other hand, the S&P600-(Chart)-Small Cap Index is configuring with solid stock market bullishness. Six major indices continue with a Near-term Indicant bear signal, while six are with bull signals. This is consistent with most major indices in the zone of neutrality, but with vector pressure in bullish domains. Overall, the bias favors the stock market bull ever so mildly. As stated a few days, TLT’s-(Chart) strongly bearish configurations supports the stock market bull and now ETF#21-(Chart) and other international ETF’s are supporting the stock market bear. These mixed configurations clearly demonstrate continuing indecisiveness in directional intensity, which is consistent with retention in the zone of neutrality.

 

Thu-May 17-There is little difference from yesterday. Near-term neutrality remains in effect. The confinement of stock market flatness invites volatility as both the stock market bear and bull are leaderless. Every now and then bull and bear wannabe leaders command attention only to be dropped by their diabolic opposition (volatility). At a future point one of the wannabes will be strong enough to withstand opposition.

 

Wed-May 16-Contrarian VIX-(Chart) continues configuring with impotence, suggesting little to fear regarding strong stock market bullishness. If its vector pressure remains in bearish domains, the stock market bear will not regain dominance. Partially contrarian TLT-(Chart) is configuring with even more bearishness, suggesting the stock market bear does not have much allied support. Several non-contrarian indices and ETF’s continue vacillating in the zone of near-term neutrality, causing stock market volatility.

 

Tue-May 15-Abbreviated report noted strong stock market bearishness did not generate any signal changes.

 

Mon-May 14-There was no report on stock market flatness.

Short-term Indicant Stock Market Report Summary

Wed-May 16-Contrarian VIX-(Chart) continues configuring with impotence, suggesting little to fear regarding strong stock market bullishness. If its vector pressure remains in bearish domains, the stock market bear will not regain dominance. Partially contrarian TLT-(Chart) is configuring with even more bearishness, suggesting the stock market bear does not have much allied support. Several non-contrarian indices and ETF’s continue vacillating in the zone of near-term neutrality, causing stock market volatility.

 

Tue-May 15-Abbreviated report noted strong stock market bearishness did not generate any signal changes.

 

Mon-May 14-There was no report on stock market flatness.

Short-term Indicant Stock Market Report Summary

This report is abbreviated and done after midnight. So, when checking the website on Wednesday evening, pay attention to the time of update on the top of the webpages.

 

Despite today’s strong stock market bearishness, there were no changes to the short-term bull/bear signals. Most force vectors are titling south; some aggressively and some more passively. Strong volume adds to bearish bias.

 

There were no short-term sell signals for ETF’s as well. Contrarian GLD-(Chart) is nearing Yellow Bear status and nearing a short-term sell signal, but not yet. It will be interesting if it bounces bullishly in the next days or two. Partially contrarian TLT-( Chart) remains strongly bearish, suggesting overall stock market bearishness is without commitment to become more bearish.

 

Most non-contrarian vector pressure remain in bullish domains, which offers some support against the stock market bear.

Short-term Indicant Stock Market Report Summary

Fri-May 11-Although some major indices finally escaped the zone of near-term neutrality, those same indices’ vector pressures continue residence in bearish domains. With that there were no new bull signals. That coupled with the prevailing near-term and quick-term bear status for the Dow Utilities suggests the bull-bear battle remains on-going.

 

Thu-May 10-Strong stock market bullishness did not elevate the prevailing near-term bulls above their respective blue curves with continuing disqualifications for new near-term blue curves. However, a shortage of near-term blue bulls remains as cause for continuing caution.

 

Wed-May 9-Four more non-contrarian major stock market indices enjoyed new near-term bull signals today, while non-contrarian DJU-(Chart) endured new near-term bear and quick-term signals. The qualifying attributes for the new bulls was their eclipsing the near-term blue curve, while the DJU succumbed to the gravitational pull from its Yellow Bear curve. The DJU has been contrarian during this micro-bullish behavior the past three-days. That is non-threatening to this newly forming bull provided that the DJU does not fall too much more from its current position. There were several ETF buy signals today, due to the same shift in short-term attributes as the major indices.

 

Tue-May 8-There was no report on stock market flatness and only miniscule changes to short-term attributes.

 

Mon-May 7- The NASDAQ-(Chart)and NASDAQ100-(Chart) enjoyed new bull signals today, as force is holding above with near-term blue bull status and bullishly positioned vector pressure. It is possible for those two indices to be bullish, while the other major indices are pathetically configured with pitifully configured force, non-blue bull status, and bearishly positioned vector pressure. The bull/bear tug-a-war continues. It will bode well for the stock market bear, if those two new near-term bulls expire in the next few days. On the other-hand, if they hold with the other major indices displacing their configurations of lethargy, the stock market bull will regain dominance.

Indicant Volume Indicators

Fri-May 11-Flat volume on stock market flatness is non-threatening to the burgeoning stock market bull along the short-term cycle.

 

Thu-May 10-Strong volume on strong stock market bullishness is solid support for the stock market bull.

 

Wed-May 9-Increased volume on strong stock market bullishness is indeed stimulating to the stock market bull along the short-term cycle.

 

Tue-May 8-Volume was up a tad on flat stock market behavior. That could have gone without mention.

 

Mon-May 7-Both volume indicators remain in the domain of high interest, offering potential support for the stock market bull. The reason for the word, potential, is that recent bearishness was not accompanied with massive selling. The NASDAQ Indicant Volume Indicator actually declined the past several weeks during bearish volatility. That suggests limited commitments to strong stock market bearishness. However, as stated last week, it would not be surprising to see the market drop to the Janet Yellen lower band, which is not much of a drop.

Short-term Indicant Stock Market Report Summary

Mon-May 7- The NASDAQ-(Chart) and NASDAQ100-(Chart) enjoyed new bull signals today, as force is holding above with near-term blue bull status and bullishly positioned vector pressure. It is possible for those two indices to be bullish, while the other major indices are pathetically configured with pitifully configured force, non-blue bull status, and bearishly positioned vector pressure. The bull/bear tug-a-war continues. It will bode well for the stock market bear, if those two new near-term bulls expire in the next few days. On the other-hand, if they hold with the other major indices displacing their configurations of lethargy, the stock market bull will regain dominance.

Indicant Volume Indicators

Mon-May 7-Both volume indicators remain in the domain of high interest, offering potential support for the stock market bull. The reason for the word, potential, is that recent bearishness was not accompanied with massive selling. The NASDAQ Indicant Volume Indicator actually declined the past several weeks during bearish volatility. That suggests limited commitments to strong stock market bearishness. However, as stated last week, it would not be surprising to see the market drop to the Janet Yellen lower band, which is not much of a drop.

Short-term Indicant Stock Market Report Summary

Fri-May 4-Strong stock market bullishness did not shift near-term attributes to favoring the stock market bull. Most force vectors continue in a bearish direction, even though the NASDAQ and NASDAQ100 are indeed configuring bullishly. However, they are still below the near-term blue curve, preventing a new bull signal. Today’s strong bullishness correlates well with the judicial branch of government counter-attacking deep state attorneys. In this case, the judge is a non-Deep State one, but rest assured there are plenty of Deep State judges.

 

Thu-May 3-Several force vectors dipped bearishly, favoring the stock market bear along the near-term cycle. Although contrarian VIX-(Chart) is also configured with similar bearishness and non-contrarian fashion, its force vector is nearing a common minimum point. A bounce off of that minimum would favor the stock market bear. That should be addressed within two to four days. The below paragraphs remain in effect with the exception of comments relating to contrarian VIX.

 

Wed-May 2-This is the same as yesterday. When the stock market bull becomes a bit pouty, it tends to migrate to a variety of what is commonly referred to, as support levels. There are lots of support levels. If the market falls below a support level without a bullish bounce, the theory holds there is nothing to stop the stock market bear eating all your equity net worth. If the communist party (contemporary democrats) create their much-desired politburo form of government and win Congress this fall, followed by the impeachment of Trump, you will not want to be holding any equities. Even Apple will crash as a politburo member will be setting production quotas and pricing. The price of an iPhone would equal zero with a Bernie Sanders-type in charge, where everything is free. Ayn Rand’s conveyance is dead perfect. Another line was drawn to the next support level on the NASDAQ Indicant Volume Indicator chart, so you can see it easier. The stock market bull does not like fake news, the democratic party, and impeachment talk. If the stock market bull senses a chance of that happening, it will fall, dramatically, and it will not wait until this coming November elections to do it. The democratic socialistic elite want it all and you are no longer entitled to share in the earth’s natural resources and related wealth associated with the related extractions. Today’s bearishness is not surprising. There is some hope, however, as the smaller caps were bullish, suggesting a nice and healthy money rotation. Also, the Yellen support level is less than 5% from prevailing market prices and that support line continues to increase. Therefore, continued volatility with a mild bearish result should be expected, until the short-term attributes shift in support of the stock market bull. Finally, with some near-term optimism, contrarian VIX-(Chart) is not configured with nervous and actually favoring its own bearishness, which not bode very well for the stock market bear at this time.

 

Tue-May 1- This paragraph is from the Indicant Volume Indicator section later in this report. The bullish spurt that has been underway for the past several days has been accompanied with declining volume indicators. That does not bode well for the stock market bull. It would not be surprising to see the NASDAQ pull back to the Janet Yellen Lower Band Bull Cycle over the summer months. Click this sentence to see the NASDAQ IVI Chart. Look at the Yellow lower band and trace it to the upper right-hand corner of the chart. Although a bit challenging, you will see the NASDAQ traced downward to the Trump Bull lower band and then bounced bullishly. Since then, the market has been finding bullish or bearish difficulty. Recent bullish spurts have not enjoyed volume support and thus the reason for this prognosis. Keep in mind that projected pull back is miniscule relative to the strong Trump-based bullish cycle originating in November 2016.

 

Mon-Apr 30-Near-term neutrality (prices between green and blue) continue inflicting indecisiveness. Contrarian VIX-(Chart)force vector dipped bearishly with bearishly positioned vector pressure last Friday and its bullishly today did not reconfigure favoring VIX bullishness. That offers a bit of bias favoring the stock market bull. Unfortunately, non-contrarians, such as the S&P500-(Chart) are enduring laterally moving force in bearish domains with falling pressure. That bodes well for the stock market bear. As stated throughout this report, stock market indecisiveness invokes volatility. Overall, the stock market remains neutral with a mild bearish bias.

If the stock market bull senses a chance of that happening, it will fall, dramatically, and it will not wait until this coming November elections to do it. The democratic socialistic elite want it all and you are no longer entitled to share in the earth’s natural resources and related wealth associated with the related extractions. Today’s bearishness is not surprising. There is some hope, however, as the smaller caps were bullish, suggesting a nice and healthy money rotation. Also, the Yellen support level is less than 5% from prevailing market prices and that support line continues to increase. Therefore, continued volatility with a mild bearish result should be expected, until the short-term attributes shift in support of the stock market bull. Finally, with some near-term optimism, contrarian VIX-(Chart) is not configured with nervous and actually favoring its own bearishness, which not bode very well for the stock market bear at this time.

 

Tue-May 1- This paragraph is from the Indicant Volume Indicator section later in this report. The bullish spurt that has been underway for the past several days has been accompanied with declining volume indicators. That does not bode well for the stock market bull. It would not be surprising to see the NASDAQ pull back to the Janet Yellen Lower Band Bull Cycle over the summer months. Click this sentence to see the NASDAQ IVI Chart. Look at the Yellow lower band and trace it to the upper right-hand corner of the chart. Although a bit challenging, you will see the NASDAQ traced downward to the Trump Bull lower band and then bounced bullishly. Since then, the market has been finding bullish or bearish difficulty. Recent bullish spurts have not enjoyed volume support and thus the reason for this prognosis. Keep in mind that projected pull back is miniscule relative to the strong Trump-based bullish cycle originating in November 2016.

 

Mon-Apr 30-Near-term neutrality (prices between green and blue) continue inflicting indecisiveness. Contrarian VIX-(Chart)force vector dipped bearishly with bearishly positioned vector pressure last Friday and its bullishly today did not reconfigure favoring VIX bullishness. That offers a bit of bias favoring the stock market bull. Unfortunately, non-contrarians, such as the S&P500-(Chart) are enduring laterally moving force in bearish domains with falling pressure. That bodes well for the stock market bear. As stated throughout this report, stock market indecisiveness invokes volatility. Overall, the stock market remains neutral with a mild bearish bias.
