Sep 20, 2020 Indicant Weekly Stock Market Report

Volume 9, Issue 03 ISSN 1526 6516 © The Indicant Stock Market Report

                                                          

Falling Force’s Similarity to 1984, 1917’s Dumb Russians, and Low IQ

All ten major index force vectors have been bearishly directed the past three weeks.  That happens from time to time and normally without mention due to its mostly irrelevance. However, this is the presidential election year, which is the second most bullish year along the four-year election cycle. That metric uses the Dow Jones Industrial Average as the basis of that observation. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 3.1% this year. That contrasts significantly with the NASDAQ100 being up 25.2% this year. There was no NASDAQ100 one hundred years ago and thus not a meaningful basis for the presidential four-year election cycle.

 

The NASDAQ-(Chart) and NASDAQ100-(Chart) meteoric rise since the China-Virus bear has been impressive as they galloped quickly north of their pre-Covid-19 highs. Their force vectors are falling aggressively toward the demarcation of the bull/bear domain. Those two indices were down 5.3% and 6.0%, respectively, the past two weeks. Their bearishness is not surprising since their force vectors fell below their vector pressure curves three and two weeks ago, respectively. At that time, the Indicant shifted to a non-bullish theme. Some would argue that a 5.3% and 6.0% drop in two weeks is more than just non-bullish. Outright bearishness could be argued. The next paragraph is that antithesis that cannot be defeated.

 

Falling prices into the face of Red Bulls and Blue Bulls is classified as non-bullish. Red and Blue Bulls are preceded with rapidly increasing prices. The NASDAQ is up 24.8% since its Mid-term Indicant bull signal on Apr 17, 2020. The NASDAQ100 is up 32.8% since its Mid-term Indicant bull signal on Apr 10, 2020. Even though they are down by an average of 5.5% the past two weeks, they are still up by double digit amounts since their bull signals. That is what the Indicant refers to as non-bullish. Another way of saying that is to not expect bullish behavior, as long as the theme is non-bullish. Additionally, if you were a buyer at the time of the bull signal, you are still okay despite recent bearishness.

 

Nine of the ten major index force vectors remain inside bullish domains. Falling force within bullish domains is seldom a serious threat to the stock market bull and especially so with vector pressure contained within bullish domains. Until you see force vectors start shifting back into a bullish direction, do not expect sustainable stock market bullishness.

 

Now, back to the point of the normally bullish presidential election year. Since 1984, there have been only three bearish presidential election years. Reagan’s 1984 presidential election year resulted in the DJIA closing down by 3.7%. That is similar to today’s DJIA circumstances with a constitutionalist president running for re-election against a democratic crazy, albeit not the lunacy of Joe Biden. American voters of a mentally deficient person such as Biden will yield massive misery as the unaccomplished orator VP candidate will most likely be president shortly after the election.

 

As you can see by clicking this sentence, 1984 started with a bearish cycle, followed by a bullish cycle. As you can see, Bull Signal#08 was followed by non-bullishness, as that bull leg was very lazy with falling force. It was so lazy, it facilitated Bear Signal#09. Bull Signal #10 was triggered after Reagan’s reelection, leading into one of the strongest and longest bull legs in stock market history. Many of the prevailing billionaire’s wealth originated with that bull leg.  They can thank Reagan, but since then they prefer politburo membership where their nice lifestyle would be preserved, so they think.

 

As you can see, the DJIA was enduring falling force vectors in the third and fourth quarter in 1984. Comparing that chart to the prevailing DJIA chart shows additional similarities to 1984. Click this sentence to view the current DJIA chart (from 2017 through current time). As you can see and certainly can remember, 2020 started with the China-Virus stock market bear. That bear was swifter than the early 1984 bear, as China had not yet started the art of germ warfare on the U.S. and the rest of the world.

 

The last pandemic, the Spanish Flu, which was significantly deadlier than the China-Virus did not trigger a stock market bear. Click this sentence to view the stock market’s behavior during the Spanish Flu. However, it was preceded by the Bolshevik Revolution by a few months, which is similar to the Black Lives Matter revolution occurring in the United States.

 

Although recently discussed in the weekly stock market report, sociopathic politicians were not as numerous then as now. Communistic governors in the U.S. are dumber and more sociopathic than their predecessors in the 1918 era. Politicians primarily advised caution to people, as opposed to dictating debilitating economic shutdowns.

 

In the next few weeks, we will learn if the American voter is as dumb as the 1917 Russians who rejoiced at their dumb revolution. Their joy was followed by three generations of poverty and misery, as only the Russian politburo lived the good life. BLM is cut from the same soul. If Americans reelect politicians who invoked those illegal economic shutdowns in 2020, while encouraging social unrest under the guise of another human folly of falling into involuntary servitude, sell your stock and move out of the country. The U.S. will start a long and pitiful decline. So far, the stock market is behaving in a manner consistent with a Trump victory this November.

 

The reelection of Donald Trump will invigorate the stock market bull and even more so with the arrest of many deep state people. Trump should exact a revenge on all the those who practiced treason to undermine Trump’s victory, as specified by the electoral college. Low IQ’s today want to abolish the thoughtfulness of much higher IQ’d people who developed the electoral college. A lame duck Trump could be dangerous for those who deserve the most severity of danger and there are many of them. Locking them up with maximal punishment will help propel the stock market bull for many generations, including a harsh punishment to China’s evolving germ warfare.

 

Right now, the stock market is not projecting this level of bearishness. It is more like 1984, which is okay, despite revolutionary activities now underway in the U.S.     

 

Mid-term Indicant Status of the Major Indices

The major stock market indices can be accessed by clicking this sentence.

Click this sentence to review how to understand the below terms.

 

Click this sentence to understand the details on the charts.

 

Mid-term Indicant Red Bulls-Click for Explanation1): 7-Red Bulls, 3-Non-Red Bulls

Comment: The seven Red Bulls remain the same as the past four weeks. They are the S&P500-(Chart), S&P100-(Chart), NASDAQ-(Chart), NASDAQ100-(Chart), DJIA-(Chart), DJT-(Chart), and the DJC65-(Chart). They are blue-chip intensive and those closest to fascistic relationships with your elected representatives in congress. The seven Red Bulls are above red by an average of 7.9%. The other three major indices are below Red by an average of 7.8%. The three non-Red Bulls are the DJU-(Chart), the S&P400-(Chart), and the S&P600-(Chart).

 

Mid-term Indicant Blue Bulls-Click for Explanation2): 6-Blue Bulls, 4-Non-Blue Bulls

            Comment: The DJU-(Chart) remains as a non-Blue Bull for the fourth consecutive week. The S&P400-(Chart) and the S&P600-(Chart) lost Blue Bull status two weeks ago. The DJIA-(Chart) lost Blue Bull status this past week. The six Blue Bulls are above blue by 3.0%, while the non-Blue Bulls are below blue by 2.6%.  

 

Mid-term Indicant Yellow Bears-Click for Explanation3): 0-Yellow Bears, 10-Non-Yellow Bears

              Comment: All major indices are above Yellow by an average of 30.8%. The absence of Yellow Bears strongly suggest economic depression is not possible. Stock market dynamics are never wrong in predicting that, but sometimes predicts a non-existing recession.

 

Mid-term Indicant Green Bears-Click for Explanation4): 0-Green Bears, 10-Non-Green Bears

              Comment: All major indices are above green by an average of 20.6%. Green curves continue rising and increasingly supportive of the stock market bull. They are a common point for new bear signals and their continued rising will minimize risks in being in the stock market.

 

Mid-term Indicant Red to Green Position5): 10-Reds Higher than Green; 0-Green Higher Than Red

              Comment: The ten major red curves are above the green curve by a healthy average of 18.6%. This attribute is irrelevant until after the next major bullish swing when green curves cross above the red curves. However, as you can see there is room for another 17.5% bullish move before this unfavorable condition manifests.

 

Mid-term Indicant Force Vector Position6): 9-bullish domains, 1-bearish domains

              Comment: The DJU-(Chart) has endured bearish force for three consecutive weeks. It is sometimes contrarian and that is generally a non-bearish dynamic in that money rotates to the perceived safety of utilities.

 

Mid-term Indicant Force Vector Relative to Vector Pressure7): 0-above pressure, 10-below pressure

              Comment: All ten below pressure for the second consecutive week is inspirational to the stock market bear.

 

Mid-term Indicant Vector Pressure Position8): 9-bullish domains, 1-bearish domains

              Comment: The DJU-(Chart) vector pressure fell into bearish domains this past week. That is not yet threatening since the DJU is sometimes contrarian.

 

Mid-term Indicant Force Vector Direction9): 0-bullishly directed, 10-bearishly directed

              Comment: All ten force vectors have been bearishly directed the past three weeks. Since they are below pressure, non-bullishness to bearish pestering remains thematic.

 

Mid-term Indicant Vector Pressure Direction10): 0-bullishly directed, 10-bearishly directed

            Comment: All ten bearishly directly pressures are inspirational to the stock market bear, but the bull can counterattack, as long as they remain in bullish domains.

Mid-term Indicant Configured Condition of Major Indices:  Mid-term Indicant attributes continue to be supportive of the prevailing non-bullish thematic. Non-bullishness coincides with bearish pestering. As long as pressure remains in bullish domains, the stock market bear cannot completely dominate.

 

Weekly Buy/Sell Summary – Stocks and Funds – Last Five Years

Click this sentence for a graphical summary of what follows in this section. It highlights historical performance since 2002. Simply scroll down the webpage to see graphical and detail content of this section. The below describes the same for the past five years. If a particular year interest you, click this sentence, which will show you all of the prior weekly reports dating back to 2002 along with Indicant performance levels at the time of those reports. From there, you can click the year of interest and then to the specific time-period you are interested in. Please note that after the Weekly Stock Market Report, dated Aug 12, 2018, ten years of history was replaced with five years of history. Again, historical weekly reports, dating to 2002 remain available on the website. As 2008’s great bear market fades beyond the 10th anniversary, just as the NASDAQ’s 2002 drop of 89% was also no longer reported in 2012, it is no longer necessary to report 2008 here. These historical references, however, do remain on the website. Of course, the website has stock market history dating back to 1900.

 

The Mid-term Indicant generated no-buy signals and two-sell signals this weekend. Clicking this sentence is where the Mid-term Indicant buy and sell signals are displayed.  

 

The Mid-term Indicant is signaling hold for 225 of the 316-stocks and funds tracked by the Indicant. Stocks and funds with hold signals are up an average of 284.2% that annualizes to 89.3%. The Mid-term Indicant has been signaling hold for these 225-stocks and funds for an average of 165.5-weeks. There have been 208-buy signals for stocks and funds so far, this year.

 

The Mid-term Indicant is avoiding 89-stocks and funds of 316-tracked by the Indicant. The avoided stocks and funds are down an average of 30.7% since the Mid-term Indicant signaled sell an average of 119.9-weeks ago. There have been 241-sell signals for stocks and funds so far, this year.

 

One year ago, on Sep 20, 2019 the Mid-term Indicant was holding 242-stocks and funds of the 321-tracked for an average of 245.1-weeks. They were up by an average of 227.7% (annualized at 48.3%). There were 78-avoided stocks and funds at that time. The avoided stocks and funds were down by an average of 29.0% since their respective sell signals an average of 101.7-weeks earlier, one year ago. There was one buy signal and no sell signals on this weekend in 2019. There had been 140-buy signals and 73-sell signals for the year through this weekend in 2019. Based on the number of stocks and funds tracked by the Indicant, holds were 75.7% in the market and avoids were 24.3% out of the market.

 

The Mid-term Indicant was signaling hold for 252-stocks and funds on Sep 21, 2018. They were up 228.9% since their buy signals an average of 234.5-weeks earlier, annualizing at 50.8%. There were 62-avoided stocks and funds on this weekend since their sell signals an average of 83.4-weeks earlier. There were seven buy signals and no sell signals on this weekend in 2018. There had been 71-buy signals and 82-sell signals in 2018 through this weekend of that year. Hold signals were 80.7% in the market and avoid signals were 19.3% out of the market at this time of year in 2018.

 

The Mid-term Indicant was signaling hold for 259-stocks and funds of the 321-tracked on Sep 22, 2017. They were up by an average of 186.3%, annualizing at 42.7% since their respective buy signals an average of 226.8-weeks earlier. The Mid-term Indicant was avoiding 58-stocks and funds at that time. They were down an average of 16.7% since their respective sell signals an average of 97.3-weeks earlier. There was one buy signal and three sell signals on this weekend in 2017. There had been 58-year-to-date buy signals and 51-sell signals through this weekend in 2017. This year was profoundly bullish, following the fake stock market bear on election night in 2016. At this time that year, hold signals were 81.0% in the market and avoid signals were 19.0% out of the market.

 

The Mid-term Indicant was signaling hold for 278-stocks and funds of the 338-tracked on Sep 16, 2016.

average of 23.1% since their respective sell signals an average of 90.8-weeks earlier. There were no buy signals and one sell signal on this weekend in 2016. There had been a total of 114-buy signals and 81-sell signals through this weekend in 2016. The stock market endured some bearish cycles in this year as Hillary Clinton led in the polls. Once she lost, the stock market bull stampeded to the north with phenomenal ferocity. Hold signals were 82.2% in the market and avoid signals were 17.8% out of the market.

 

The above performance reflects status at the time of the updates. Abandoned securities have no impact to the above performance statistics and the historical report card. They always represent status at the time of that status and never changes. When securities become NLT (no longer traded), their performance levels are excluded from the report card at the time they become NLT. There are no retroactive adjustments. The number of stocks and funds tracked from week to week may differ because they are no longer traded or listed on major stock exchanges.     

 

The Indicant started retaining records of abandoned stocks and funds in 2012. There are advantages of retaining records by expressing the consequences of an organization employing dilettante management and related corporate leeching. All organizations eventually expire. The primary causes of such expirations are corporate leeching, stupidity, and arrogance (without cause). {Note: the same is true of governments that fall prey to either economic leeching (FDR) and/or excessive egomaniacal behavior by its leaders (Hitler)}.

Comments about Mid-term Indicant Buy and Sell Signals

There is nothing different from last week. “As political meddling in the U.S. economy continues with more to come, set tight stop losses. As stated, the past few weeks, the bull-bear battle continues. As long as that battle persists, the risk/reward ratio remains high. Another way of saying this is that projected reward/risk ratio remains low, but waning.” The Indicant is 28.8% out of the market, which is below being out by over 74% in early March 2020, based on the number of avoid-sell signals for stocks and funds along the Mid-term Indicant cycle. The Mid-term cycle is now 71.2% in the market.

 

Clicking this sentence will take you to this weekend’s Mid-term Indicant buy/sell signals.

 

The Short-term Indicant signals buy and sell for ETF’s, almost daily, provided the ETF’s enjoy a buy signal or endure a sell signal. They are not included in the Mid-term Indicant summaries. These short-term models attempt participation in significant bullish spurts, while the Mid-term Indicant includes fundamentals and longer-term technical data to reject short-term trader nervousness. The Daily Stock Market Report reports status for the short-term model.

 

Economic Conditions – Inflation, Currency, Interest Rates

Click the above heading for a summary of hard economic indicators.

 

Although this paragraph has remained unchanged for several years, do not fall asleep. It will change. It will be significant and dramatic when it does. The markets, both free and controlled, are not constant. A massive bear market, depending on the magnitude of combined interest rates and inflation, will eventually occur. The more politicians attempt to generate the markets as a constant, the less constant they become. The combined absolute value of interest rates, inflation/deflation remain less than 8.0% and thus no related threat of depressed economic behavior exists now. That is a temporary condition. Shifting cultural values and related ignorance is threatening to the stock market bull. Shortages are beginning to accumulate.

 

Although increasing above the norms of Obama economic sluggishness, the reported CPI remains relatively healthy, while the PPI remains non-threatening. As stated, several times in this report, Trumponomics and China induced germ warfare with endless government bailouts will be inflationary and heightened even more with money supply increasing far above earned money. Despite that eventuality, inflation remains tame for the time being. The annual inflation rate is being reported at only 1.2% to date this year. Oil prices, although recently rising, are down 30.9% from this time one year ago.

 

The Prime Rate, Discount Rate, and Effective Rate decreased by 100-basis points on Mar 20, 2020, following a 50-basis point cut on weekending Mar 6, 2020.  That followed less aggressive decreases on Aug 2, 2019, Sep 19, 2019, and Nov 2, 2019. These less aggressive decreases were miniscule to the increases on Dec 23, 2016, Mar 17, 2017, Jun 15, 2017, Dec 15, 2017, Mar 23, 2018, Jun 15, 2018, Sep 30, 2018, and Dec 21, 2018. High unemployment, germ warfare from China, and overstepping communistic politicians continue confronting the stock market bull. So far, the markets are not believing the threat is sustainable. Gold and other commodities are no longer skyrocketing, while not yet collapsing.

 

The 3-Month T-Bill fell to Yellow Bear status on weekending Jul 19, 2019.  After falling deeper into the domain of the Yellow Bear, it started a rebound attempt on weekending Jan 10, 2020, but fell deeper into the domain of the Yellow Bear on weekending Mar 6, 2020 and rapidly falling even more after that and below zero on weekending Mar 19, 2020, with a small bounce north of zero on weekending Apr 3, 2020. It has risen slightly since that craziness that reflects humanity’s rapidly decreasing IQ. Covid-19 is being blamed, but the economic lockdown remains as the prime cause with democrats doing that in attempt to route Trump from office. Their power to them is more important than your economic or healthy well-being.

                                                                                

The Euro gained Red Bull status on weekending Jun 18, 2020 and still holding with that status and with some recent ambition to maintain Red Bull status. The 2020-mean forecast is at $1.19 with more aggressive intrinsic modeling, projecting $0.98 to $1.00. The absence of variation in its steady decline is impressive. This attempt at retaining Red Bull status reflects U.S. weakness at massive money printing machines that trace to a communistic takeover of the U.S. Government.

 

The Canadian dollar fell below Yellow (strongly strengthening) during the week of August 3, 2020. After holding there for a few weeks, it bounced north of Yellow on weekending September 11, 2020. Its 2020-mean forecast is $1.32CA with projected polynomials forecasting much weaker values ranging from $1.53CA to $1.59CA. Canadians must be printing fake CA$’s like the fake U.S.$’s.

 

The Japanese Yen continues in a steady downward drift (strengthening). It continues with minimal variations mostly around the domain of the Yellow Bear (stronger) and became a Yellow Bear on weekending Aug 7, 2020. This currency has been and remains very stable since 2015. Its statistical mean forecast is at 110-yen/dollar by 2020 while the aggressive polynomials are projecting a range of 127-131-Yen/U.S. dollar. Its flatness the past several years is unusual. That helps international stabilization, which is always welcome by the stock market bull. It also strengthened with the mild rate reduction by the U.S. Fed on weekending Aug 2, 2019, but with limited impact on the Sep 19, 2019 rate reduction and continued steadiness with crazy Coronavirus reactions since early Feb 2020.

 

The British Pound enjoyed Red Bull status on the week of August 3, 2020 for the first time in over a year. It is not comfortable there and fell below Red on September 10, 2020. Its statistical mean forecast is at $1.28 with more aggressive polynomials, projecting around $1.13-$1.19 by Dec 31, 2020. Since its mid-June 2016 BREXIT vote, it drifted, bearishly.

 

The Bitcoin regained Red Bull status on weekending Sep 18, 2020. As you can see it remains bouncy around the bullish red curve, suggesting continuing declines in the greenback value. It climbed out Yellow Bear status on weekending Apr 3, 2020 with massive greenback printing in overzealous responses to the Coronavirus attack from China.

                       

Gold climbed sharply above Red on weekending Jun 21, 2019.  It achieved an all-time high in early August 2020. Its bullishness is being threatened with congressional consideration of taxing PPP. That would bankrupt many businesses and thus deploy a deflationary influence on the dollar.  That would depress the value of gold and other commodities. However, its recent bearishness is miniscule when compared to its meteoric rise to its prevailing position. The 2020-mean forecast is $1,420/oz. while the more aggressive polynomials are projecting a 2020 value approximating $1,100-$1,138/oz. You can keep up with an approximation of this on the Indicant Daily Stock Market Report by tracking ETF#11-GLD.

 

Oil finally moved above the domain of the Yellow Bear on weekending Jun 19, 2020, after falling to Yellow Bear status on Feb 6, 2020. It is now over $40/bbl. The 2020-intrinsic and aggressive polynomial forecast ranges from $22 to $24 with a mean forecast of $32/bbl.

 

The CRB Bridge Futures abandoned Yellow Bear status on the week of August 3, 2020, since succumbing to Yellow Bear status in February 2020. It is making a strong attempt to participate in anticipated inflationary pressures.

 

Mortgage rates fell into Yellow Bear status on weekending Apr 12, 2019.  They remain as Yellow Bears and deepening so. This remains a great time to finance real estate for those willing to incur debt during uncertainties from the Coronavirus and the more damaging sociopathic politicians.

 

The consumer price index and producer price index are computing without the combined absolute value of threatening interest rates and inflation or deflation of 8%. Considerations of deflationary threats are not out of line, though. Fortunately, there are millions around the world willing to work and be consumptive. With that, the strong may offset the weak. The coronavirus had been disrupting that line of thinking, but nearing its disruptive end.

 

Mid-term Indicant Positions – Ten U.S. Indices

There were no new bull signals and no new bear signals this week for the major indices along the mid-term cycle.          

 

The Mid-term Indicant is signaling bull for eight of the ten major indices. The eight bulls are up by an average of 10.3% since their bull signals an average of 11.8-weeks ago and annualizing at 45.4%. The Mid-term Indicant lost bullish unanimity along the Mid-term Indicant cycle on weekending Sep 11, 2020. The two bears are up 0.8% since their bear signals 1.0-week ago.

 

The Mid-term Indicant Dow Jones Industrial Average performance is at $62.374-million. That beats buy and hold performance of $4.146-million on a $10,000 investment in the Dow stocks in 1900. The MTI S&P500 is at $3.564-million. That beats buy and hold’s $1.955-million on a Jan 6, 1950 $10,000 investment. The MTI-NASDAQ is at $2.650-million. That beats buy and hold’s $1.079-million on a Jan 29, 1971 $10,000 investment.  The MTI-Dow Transports is at $33.849-million. That is better than buy and hold $818,495 since a $10,000 investment on Oct 19, 1928. The Mid-term Indicant model beats buy and hold by 1,504.5%, 182.3%, 245.5%, and 4,135.5%, respectively, for these indices as of this past week.

 

There are two reasons why the Dow Transports is included in the above summary. It is used by the Dow Theory Forecast, which has merit, albeit slowly. The second reason is the statistical friendliness and its near-perfect sinusoidal waves. It tends to stay committed to its underlying cycle of bullishness or bearishness more than other indices.

 

The Indicant’s percentage advantage over buy and hold does not change during bull signals as buy and hold and the Indicant moves at the same magnitude. The Indicant’s advantage only occurs during bear signals as the cash holds constant, while the stock market dives. It sometimes takes a week or two for the statistics to settle.

The Mid-term Indicant signaled sell for MF#22-ProFunds Ultra Short on April 3, 2009. It is down 99.7% since then. Although this is classically a post-election-year hold, the Mid-term Indicant was unable to signal buy and hold during 2009, 2013, and 2017, as the stock market bear remained in hibernation, for the most part, in those three presidential post-election years. Polls and recent elections are highlighting left leaning political movements. Although poll accuracy is indeed questionable, a return to politburo wannabes in congress will offer this fund and others like it, profound growth opportunities at some future point, but not right now, even with the coronavirus inflicting damage to the stock market bull. Of course, if that happens, you would not be allowed to benefit from that opportunity to enjoy the wealth this would provide you. Politburo’s confiscate. This fund remains too depressed for a coronavirus buy at this point. At this point it is better to purchase related ETF, QID, when you see a buy signal.

Remember never to keep more than 20% of your investment resources into a single mutual fund. Sector investing in mutual funds is an extremely good way to mix your investments.

 

Long Term Indicant Positions - Dow Jones Industrial Average

The blue-chip Long-term Indicant Bull signal was at 2895 for the DJIA in November 1991. Keep in mind the Long-term Indicant generated only five bull/bear cycles since 1920.

 

The Dow is up 855.5% (annualized at 29.5%) since the Long-term Indicant signaled bull 1,507-weeks ago. Economic data is the primary influence on the Long-term Indicant. Recessions, deflation, inflation, and unreasonable interest rates have not been strong enough to signal bear since that bull signal, including relative performance since that bull signal. Even with today’s economy and stock market position, the 1991 investor is still up triple digit amounts, which remains above average performance when considering long-term planning.

 

Influencing parameters in the LTI include prior bull cycles. The great bull market in the 1990’s was powerful enough to offset the 2008-2009 recessionary bear market in this long-term modeling.

Indicant Volume Indicators

The market started this past week with solid bullishness and at mid-week shifted to solid bearishness. It did all of that on flat and average volume suggesting little inspiration from both the stock market bull and the stock market bear. A boring stock market with an obvious communistic takeover of the United States is long-term bullish, as all the major indices would already be near zero with strong evidence of communistic success.

Indicant Conclusion

There is nothing different from last week. “The stock market is configuring with non-bullish attributes with force below pressure and with both falling toward bearish domains. The threat is minimal as all green curves are rising along both the short-term and mid-term cycles. However, do not be surprised at increased volatility over the next few weeks leading to the upcoming presidential election.”

Stop Loss Management

This was moved to the bottom of this report as its content rarely changes. You will be notified when stop losses should be tightened or loosened.

 

The Mid-term Indicant recommends a trailing stop loss of 8% for holds with less than a 20% unrealized capital gain. Of course, this includes new buys. Stop losses shortly after buying are the trickiest. Right after buying, set the stop loss at the greater value of 8% or green curve values, depending on your personal preferences.

 

For your longer-term holdings, where you are enjoying triple and quadruple digit gains, you may want to set your stop at the bearish yellow price. Do not worry if you stop out. New opportunities always emerge. The idea is to minimize losses.

 

Floor traders are aware of stop loss positions. If prices near those stop losses against the grain of directional bias, the floor traders will drive the price down to those stop losses and then buy for themselves and then quickly sell for profits at your expense. Although seemingly immoral, it is the nature of free markets and contributes to the desired liquidity of stock markets. This is one reason why stop losses should be well below prevailing prices but well above your buy price. That perfection, of course, is not attainable shortly after buying, which is the most dangerous period for holding. Use the Blue and Green curves or a combination thereof for stop loss management shortly after buying. Long after a successful buy, monitor prices relative to the bearish yellow curve. That will minimize the number of trades, while protecting portfolio values.

 

For new buys, set stop losses at the blue or green values in the tables. If green is deeply lagging the prevailing price, you may want to average the blue and green prices for your stop losses. If the green curve is rising and above your buy price, set the stop loss just below it. Green is a common bouncing point. Consider a stop loss a percentage below its value. Once green passes above your buy price, then adjust your stop losses, periodically, say weekly, at or just below green. Once yellow passes above your buy price, you should set the stop loss at the yellow price. That is a good tactic when longer-term holding positions are supported with expected fundamentals and your enjoyment of owning a piece of a great company or fund.

 

If your stop loss triggered sell, while Indicant continues signaling hold, normal advice would be to buy again. However, if the Near-term Indicant is signaling bear/avoid in related sectors, it is better to wait for specific buy signals from the Mid-term Indicant. In other words, other opportunities will emerge.

 

Indicant Conclusion

Force vector behavior is increasingly unfriendly to the stock market bull with a majority of the major indices in  a strong bearish direction. Force vectors remain below vector pressure. Until force moves above pressure, the stock market bull remains absent.
