Headline from Politico

Sorry this part crashed on my computer – Back tomorrow. Just one happy face of a happy guy (ex presidential candidate) from the financial elite laughing all the way to the bank – Donald Trump.

Technicals, Fundamentals & Analysis

Investors411 record - 6 years of beating benchmark S&P 500

  • UUP is the tracking stock for the dollar. It echos what the massive FOREX (currency) markets do. There has been massive volume behind each of the four rally days over the last two weeks. This is VERY bullish for the dollar and NOT for stocks.
  • Bond Investors  are 100% simply NOT worried about the end of quantitative easing or the debt ceiling crisis. The yield on the 10 year treasury bond (also 2, 5 & 30) keeps falling. If investors were worried about these factors they would NOT buy Treasuries.  Fear of the future sure as hell is not registering on how investors allocate their money.  Money talks.
  • Many investors went overboard for many many months believing the dollar would keep falling. It’s not falling, and these massive positions are now unwinding.  As the dollar goes up, stocks go down.
  • Impossible to predict how long the dollar will move higher and, as a result,  stocks lower.- Another day or many months.


Shorter Term Forecasting Indexes

There are hundreds of forecasting tools, – These two tools have worked

When they stop working Investors411 will use other Indexes

  • The Dollar (USD) [Any daily price move over +/- 0.50 is significant. Dollar usually moves inversely to stocks] Dollar fell -0.28% yesterday.  Dollar bulls are on a big run that started 8 trading days ago. Any quick look at the tracking stock for the dollar UUP shows massive volume on up days and meager volume on down days – Great news if you are long the dollar, but NOT good news for stocks. For stocks shorter term trend = Bearish
  • McClellan Index (MO) [The very rough guideline is over +60 = overbought market = sell positions or short stocks, & -60 = oversold market = buy stocks .] Mo fell to -33.34. On its way to oversold (@-60) Another bad day or two and we should be ready for at least an oversold bounce. The bullish side of the Neutral/Bullish will grow, the lower we go. Neutral/Bullish
