A Decline for the Ages – Turnaround Tuesday Possible

Seeing the Dow Industrials lose 2000 points in a single day was something that wasn’t even on my worst case radar as recently as last month. But as we have seen many times this century with the advent and domination of computerized trading, things change at warp speed. Declines that used to take weeks, months and even quarters to unfold and complete are now compressed into days and weeks. Risk no longer slowly builds; it happens all at once. I […]   Read More

UGLY Open Ahead

Stocks are set to plummet at the open as crude oil collapsed overnight. The revisiting of the February 28 low is here and we need to see if divergences develop to indicate a successful retest and the next step in the bottoming process. Trading today and over the next few days is going to be frenetic. I imagine enormous intra-day moves with many bouts of panic selling and margin calls. This correction continues to set precedents for its speed and […]   Read More

Internal Bottom, More Downside Left, Dow 30K and Powell’s Blunder

On Monday, I spent a good deal of time publishing 9th Correction of the Bull Market – Dow 30,000 Coming in Q3. I think I did a pretty good job of putting the correction into proper context against the 8 other corrections during this bull market. So far, last Friday certainly has all the makings of the internal or momentum low I usually discuss during corrections. I will spare you and not post a deluge of charts, but here are […]   Read More

9th Correction of the Bull Market – Dow 30,000 Coming in Q3

Before I begin the update as planned, I want to repeat what I have said to folks who have called and emailed. I think the bull market remains alive. I think Dow 30,000 will be hit during the summer. That anticipated rally may be the one that signals a new bear market. I think this week will be up for the stock market. It is quite possible that Friday’s low was the internal or momentum low from which the first […]   Read More

Coronavirus & Stock Market Playbook

As I mentioned the other day, I have been reading an incredible amount, just like many of you, about the Coronavirus. I even pestered a relative at the CDC as well as my friend who runs a research lab at Yale for their opinions. Interestingly, the professionals are a whole lot less alarmed than the masses. The two I annoyed both texted me science articles of why Corona is just another in a long line of bad viruses to be […]   Read More

Putting 1000 Points into Perspective & Selling Gold

Stocks are set for a feeble bounce at the open today after a 1000 point drubbing to begin the new week. 1000 Dow points today equals roughly 3.5%. While Monday was the third largest point decline in history, it only ranked as 254th of all declines since 1896 according to my friend Ryan Detrick from LPL. Since 1950 there have been 103 3%+ declines in the stock market.The crash of 1987 was 22.5% in one day. Today, that would have […]   Read More

Critical 5 Days Coming Up for the Bulls

What a wonderful three days it’s been for the bulls since I posted Yet ANOTHER Potential Low last week at the bottom. In fact, it has been one of the most powerful rallies off of a low in history in terms of the number of stocks advancing and declining along with their volume. That gives us a very overbought market in the short-term, but one that just emerging from being very oversold intermediate-term. After such strong thrusts off a bottom, […]   Read More

Yet ANOTHER Potential Low

For the second time in a week, stocks are trying to hammer out at least a trading low. Market action has not been good this whole quarter, but lately it has become so bad that it could be approaching washed out. February’s decline isn’t surprising given that down 5% months like we had in January typically lead to another lower month, but it has been on the ugly side for the bulls. It now looks like the major indices have […]   Read More
