3 Up Gaps That Must Fill

3 Up Gaps That Must Fill

When it comes to the stock market, never say never because every possible market event will happen at least once. Especially events you least expect.

Here’s one that is positive for your portfolio.

There are specific events that have been proven through over 200 years of actual stock market history.

In fact, this one is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt and you can make money with it very soon:

Up & Down Gaps Close 91% Of The Time!

For those of you who do not know what a gap is, and how important it is, here is a simple explanation.

Let’s now look at the current chart below:

As you can see, the  Standard Poor’s 500 chart above reveals 3 Up Gaps in price that, at a better than 91% chance will eventually fill to the downside. The reason that pushes this to the ranks of “it will now LIKELY move sooner than later is the fact that all 3 Up Gaps occurred within 3 months and this is almost unprecedented.

Watch out below. We are not trying to scare you, quite the opposite, we are giving you a kind warning.

So lets add it up:

“A 91% chance of filling every market gap up or down for the last 200 years?” 

Prepare for anything because the last time more than 3 Gaps were closed within only 5 weeks was February 2020! 

What is hard to imagine is that the rise lasted 1,458 days for the 5 Up Gaps to be created between December 2016 and February 2020. It took exactly 22 Corona-Crash days to close (fill all 5) to the downside.

The point is clear. This is not a question of will the current 3 Up Gaps fill, but when will they fill and will you avoid the decline?

You must be ready to avoid the coming decline unless you have 1,458 more days to wait for it to come back to break even.

As we already demonstrated to our members on January 18, 2020 with a market Red Light exit signal, InterAnalyst will warn and protect our members when it turns down again.

6 MUST FILL TRADING GAPS

6 MUST FILL TRADING GAPS

The last time I wrote about 6 Must Fill Trading Gaps was at the end of March, however our members were getting notifications in 2019 and into (01/3102/24, 2/28, and 3/02)  regarding Gaps and the potential consequences of ignoring them.

We all know what happens to the market if we ignore upside gaps…THE GAPS FILL TO THE DOWNSIDE.

The recent crash closed all the gaps dating back through 2018 before we started are ascent again.

I have been listening to the talking heads on Fox Business, CNN, Bloomberg, Yahoo Finance, and many others. The all ask if this rally is just a long journey back up to eventual new highs. Plain and simple, their answers must be scripted. I personally know 2 of them and they are intelligent and practiced and know that 91% of all Gaps fill.

These well trained “guru’s” can easily look to their charts and know whats coming.

If you have downloaded and read our Gaps guide, then you know the 6 Must Fill Trading Gaps are going to eventually close and are already prepared for it.

I was having a nice cold Bud chatting socially with my next door neighbor and he asked me when to expect the Gaps to fill. My answer is always the same so brace for it. “I have no clue.”

What is more important is the recognition that dating all the way back to 2018 all the gains you made were gone in a matter of a few weeks. Now that it has risen 50% from the bottom of the current decline, are you ready to fill those gaps near the bottom?

If you are not ready for a retest, then grab a self paying subscription, or a bottle of Rolaids because it is coming. At a rate higher than 91%, the Green Gaps in the chart above will refill which means the market is coming back down.

History proves it. 

If this is even remotely close to the typical decline dating back to the 1600’s, its best to avoid the declining and simply jump back in close to the bottom.

Why Mark Mobius says the stock market hasn’t seen an ‘absolute bottom’ yet

Why Mark Mobius says the stock market hasn’t seen an ‘absolute bottom’ yet

Emerging-markets investing pioneer Mark Mobius made those remarks Tuesday in an interview with CNBC, putting him in the investing camp that expects an inevitable cascade of brutal economic data and corporate earnings hasn’t been fully discounted by investors.

Mobius, who founded Mobius Capital Partners in 2018 after a three-decade run at Franklin Templeton Investments, said corporate earnings would be “pretty bad” and that while some bargains have emerged, investors should keep some cash ready to deploy in the event of a further market downturn.

U.S. stocks hit all-time highs in February, then plunged into a bear market as the global spread of COVID-19 forced the U.S. and countries around the world to largely lock down their economies in an effort to contain the outbreak. Stocks have taken back a large chunk of lost ground since March 23, however, with recent gains tied to expectations the pandemic is near its peak, turning attention to efforts to reopen economies.

Market bulls have argued that the unprecedented nature of the shock and the massive response from the Federal Reserve, other central banks, and governments have rendered most comparisons to past bear markets debatable.

Others have cautioned that stocks are largely sticking to the bear market script.

“Although there are some opportunities to buy, I would say it’s probably a good idea to keep some powder dry for another downturn,” he said. “We might see a double bottom.”

Here’s When The Bear Market Rally Ends

Here’s When The Bear Market Rally Ends

This Bear Market Rally is still not complete but should be shortly and Here’s When The Bear Market Rally Ends.

We are actually still in a bear market rally with today clearly being another ‘green’ day, it is likely the rally will continue until the herd jumps in again.

It is not uncommon what-so-ever to re-touch near a 50% level during voracious bear markets, however, at this point you can actually argue the market is more over-valued now given the environment than when the Standard & Poor’s was near 3400 ironically enough.

The markets are already trying to price in a possible slowdown in the COVID-19 pandemic. But, even if the Pandemic miraculously disappeared today, the massive economic shock won’t disappear anytime soon.

Major indices all over the world have already plummeted into Bear Territories and the recent rally is simply a correction. In fact, if you look at previous bear markets, you will find plenty of temporary Bullish rallies within the larger Bearish move.

So, do not get emotionally carried away by the bull run right now. Shortly, we will be dealing with bad economic data, a bigger than 2008 recession (likel):
  • Falling Output. Less will be produced leading to lower real GDP and lower average incomes. Wages tend to rise much more slowly or not at all.
  • Unemployment. The biggest problem of a recession is a rise in cyclical unemployment. Because firms produce less, they demand fewer workers leading to a rise in unemployment.
  • Higher Government Borrowing. In a recession, government finances tend to deteriorate. People pay fewer taxes because of higher unemployment and they need to spend more on unemployment benefits. This deterioration in government finances can cause markets to be worried about levels of government borrowing leading to higher interest rate costs. This rise in bond yields may put pressure on governments to reduce budget deficits through spending cuts and tax rises. This can make the recession worse and more difficult to get out of. This was particularly a problem for many Eurozone economies in the aftermath of 2009 recession.
  • Hysteresis. This is the argument that a rise in temporary (cyclical) unemployment can translate into higher structural (long-term) unemployment. hysteresis
  • Falling asset prices. In a recession, there is less demand for buying fixed assets such as housing. Falling house prices can aggravate the fall in consumer spending and also increase bank losses. This fall in asset prices is particularly a feature of a balance sheet recession (e.g. 2009-10) recession.
  • Falling share prices. Lower profits lead to lower levels of share prices.
  • Social problems related to rising unemployment, e.g. higher rates of social exclusion.
  • Increased inequality. A recession tends to aggravate income inequality and relative poverty. In particular, unemployment (relying on unemployment benefits) is one of the largest causes of relative poverty.
  • Rise in Protectionism. In response to a global downturn, countries are often encouraged to respond with protectionist measures (e.g. raising import duties). This leads to retaliation and a general decline in trade which has adverse effects.

These factors are not at the top of the news yet cycle right now. But I assure you that when the Corona-Virus takes a back seat to the Presidential Election, the reality will set in and we will witness a new test of the bottom.

So, such rallies as the one we are seeing now will be sold aggressively and markets will plummet into fresh lows. Until a 50%-55% drop has happened, we can’t start thinking about bottom formation.

Conservative investors should continue to follow the Wealth Preserver signals as is proven historically, the signals will protect you from every market crash that matters.

As for Daily and Weekly traders, they should follow their Wealth Maximizer and Maximizer Pro signals according to the Pro’s 5 Minute Secret.

Another Leg Down?

Another Leg Down?

We have seen a hefty relief rally but does Another Leg Down loom? For those who are Wealth Maximizer Pro members, you have caught the nice profitable rally, contratulations.

I am seeing some “disturbing” signs that the market is very close to re-testing the lows that we previously have made, or, will it form another leg down loom?.

At the very least, it is 98% certain we will come to test the lows around 2250 at any moment in time. It is possible that we have another final leg down, and I believe that we likely will.

It is important for you to remain patient instead of panic buying and falling into bull trap.

During this last leg down, simultaneously, Gold and Silver will likely sell-off for liquidity reasons. People are now and will continue to liquidate their hidden savings.

Here’s why we know that the last leg down is coming:

The VIX remains incredibly elevated (60+) despite big pops in the markets and has not subsided. This tells you another sell-off is looming. Whats more, it’s supported by many other technical and fundamental factors.

For the market to continue up and ignore these factors would be unprecedented.

Prepare for another drop to the eventual bottom.

Crono-Crash & The Slingshot

Crono-Crash & The Slingshot

Livio,

I exited with the Wealth Preserver on the on March 2nd.  The last couple of bullish days brought to mind the Slingshot, are we there and have we missed the first 2 days. In your recent Celente video post you mentioned we’re entering into a global depression which may be even worse than the Great Depression.

Before all that happens is it possible we see DOW tumble another 5K-10K?

There seems to be an incredible amount of liquidating-at-all-costs mentality at the moment. I worked on an equity desk during the 2008 crisis, and currently at a very small non-bank FX dealing desk and have never seen anything like this. Your feedback is always appreciated.

Thanks,
Victor

“Great Question Victor.

The simple answer is NO.

The worst-case scenario appears to be testing the reversal technical line in the 15,000 level and do not see a drop to 5-10K. That is way too far for a slingshot. 

I see the slingshot build and breakout to new highs by 2023.

However, let’s tale a look at history to guide us on recovery times with similar drops to our current CronoCrash. 

Look at the two charts below.

What you see is that it took 65 months from the 2007-2009 Crash to get back to even.

The 1987 Crash appears to be a likely type of pattern from a timing perspective to our current Crono-Crash. That was a 53% decline and took 24 months to break even.

The 2000 -2003 Bear Market was a 3 year 54% decline and took 81 months to break even. 

If we were to fall on par with those declines, we would be looking at a drop to the mid-15000 level.

Because InterAnalyst members s stepped aside (red signals)  for most of the Corona-Crash, they will miss all those months of recovery just to get back to even.

More importantly, while everyone else is back to even, those who stepped aside will be 100% – 400% ahead of those buy and hold investors who did not step aside of the Corona-Crash.

As for the future, when we get back in (green signal) we could reach the test of just below the 40,000 level happening in 2024.

Marxism, Buffett, Dalio, Stalin & The Bottom

Marxism, Buffett, Dalio, Stalin & The Bottom

As always, the Democrats just can’t stand the fact that Trump might take credit for helping people and have blocked and relief package. Democrats claimed in true Marxist fashion in the Senate that the GOP’s push to set aside $425 billion for loans to help select companies and industries, dubbing it a “slush fund” for the Treasury to direct as it sees fit. They said the bill is tilted toward corporations instead of working people. What they fail to even address is that those working people rely upon small businesses the Democrats hate so much which provides 70% of their employment.

Small businesses have been ordered to close down. They cannot pay employees and nobody has suspended their rents. The destruction of small businesses will be devastating to the economy and this is all about playing politics. I am saddened.

The closing for March, if down from last Friday may spark more serious liquidation as Hedge Funds dump everything and some may more to suspend withdrawals as is taking place in European bond funds. The Solus Alternative Asset Management LP, Hedge Fund, known for its investment in retail chain Toys “R” Us, informed its investors that it is shutting its flagship fund and will restrict redemption’s as it works to sell off holdings.

Even Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway may have lost more than $70 billion on its 10 biggest investments. This type of decline shows that the buy-and-hold strategy fails in a serious market correction. Ray Dalio, who will go down in history for his proclamation that “cash is trash” on January 21, 2020, has lost probably more than $4 trillion in Bridgewater.

Where the 2007-2009 Crash took out Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns, this time we will see Hedge Funds go down in flames. This undermines liquidity and makes the market vulnerable because market-makers pull back just to survive. 

We are headed into a Global Recession which could become even worse than the Great Depression. Here’s why?

This time we have politicians taking advice from the medical industry. The medical people who do not understand that you cannot shut down the economy on this grand scale because of the devastation is insurmountable to people, their jobs, and wiping out their pensions. This economic shut down on such a massive scale is far worse than if the Corona death toll was even 8%.

Never before has the economy been crashing with such speed for this is orchestrated by people who only look at how diseases spread and not how the economy contracts.

See the source image

Yes, it is true that if we all stayed home we can even beat the common cold. But the post-coronavirus world is going to be far more damaging to the future than any of these people understand.

To have the Democrats playing politics in the middle of the is just insane.

Liquidity is collapsing everywhere. Bank failures rose after the 1929 crash because liquidity failure with a declining velocity = less money with even less money moving around the economy = recession and potential depression.

A monthly closing on Oil below $20.50 will warn of the economic recession ahead as people stay home and this command of quarantine and social distancing may undermine the very cooperation which is the foundation of civilization. 

If people are afraid to interact and suspect everyone, that is precisely the atmosphere created by Stalin during the Communist era.  We are voluntarily limiting and quickly losing all rights including the freedom of assembly. Even Twitter has shut down those who dissent against the coronavirus and this is calling into question our freedom of speech as well.

InterAnalyst will help guide everyone out of this time of insecurity and political misdirection via selfish ignorance.

Look at the chart below:

Finding The Bottom

As the markets find the bottom, it will be laced with volatility and insecurity with the media frightening you to the point of insecurity. this is not done for YOU as an InterAnalyst member. It is done for those Buy and Holders who never exited at the top and now have been scared into submission. 

However, as an InterAnalyst member,  you recognize that it likely will become the best entry point of your life! Yes, insecurity will be there but you know the stock market is going nowhere!

The stock market never lies and it always returns when there is “blood in the street” and the bottom arrives.

Thus, follow the guideline to a risky to safe entry back into the coming slingshot move.

Step One: Wealth Maximizer Pro (Daily Charts)

When the Daily chart delivers a green signal, jump for joy, then choose to enter a position or wait to see if the daily signal is holding for a few days for stability. If we are at or close to a bottom, volatility will be very high so prepare for it if you choose to trade it.

Step Two: Wealth Maximizer (Weekly Charts)

When the Daily is followed by a Weekly green signal you know that the economy is attempting to settle and gain strength.

You should begin to feel a bit more secure. Entering a bullish position here is a bit less risky because the weekly signal has some economic strength attached rather than pure daily volatility. You can even wait another week to see if it develops more strength.

Step Three: The Wealth Preserver (Monthly Charts)

Once the Green signal has elevated from the Daily to the Weekly and the Weekly has moved into a second or third week of a bullish trend, you may select to beat the green monthly Wealth Preserver signal by entering a bullish position before month end.

If you look at The Wealth Preserver chart above, ask yourself whether you remember the days or weeks Just prior to the bottom green signals in 2003 and 2008?  NOPE, right. You don’t remember them, but what you would have remembered is getting in after preserving your money at the prior top, before the full devastating decline those bear markets delivered.

The same is true now. 

So, the bottom is going to come. You must be patient, it will arrive, it always does!

Enter in when you feel most comfortable, but recognize that the Wealth Preserver has proven to be deadly accurate at economic turning points.

The phrase to be true: “Better Safe, than Sorry!” 

Obviously, entry at any point has its risks, but as you look closely at The Wealth Preserver chart above, making a move using the monthly charts is rarely a poor decision…ESPECIALLY OFF THE BOTTOM.

This time it is coming with a slingshot.

The Stock Market Holiday Effect

The Stock Market Holiday Effect

The Stock Market Holiday Effect

The holiday effect shows that stocks tend to rise on the day after market holidays.

One explanation of the holiday effect is that the market rises by an adequate amount in order to make up for the lost trading day. However this theory runs contrary to what happens when markets reopen after the weekend, known as the Monday effect.

An alternate explanation for the anomaly is that investors come back to their desks in a more optimistic mood and are therefore more likely to buy equities.

Another idea is that while US markets are closed for the holiday, foreign markets are direction-less and less liquid. They tend to drift higher resulting in a higher open for the US market on the day after the holiday.

Of course, as with all the market anomalies we are discussing, there is also the possibility of data mining or natural variance. Just because a market anomaly worked in the past doesn’t mean it will continue in the future.

The following chart from Stern NYU shows how average returns for the first trading day after a holiday have been net positive for all holidays except the Fourth of July. The day after Labor Day is best with an average return of almost 0.40%:

stock market anomalies holiday effect

Strategy:

You can buy stock index futures or baskets of stocks on the close of trading before a market holiday. You can then exit at close on the next full day of trading to lock in gains from the holiday effect.

I hope this little secret will pay for your entire holiday season!

Happy Thanksgiving
