Broad Market Review

Broad Market Review

One has to understand the difference between the forest (broad market outlook) and tree perspective. Too many traders are subscribing to the day traders mindset, confusing the two perspectives and then stating that our commentary is confusing.

The markets are projected to rally until Sept/Oct timelines (Forest perspective). The longer or Broad Market outlook

The SPX will run into resistance in the 3960 to 4000 ranges and shed some weight (the tree perspective). The shorter-term perspective

Nobody should be confused with the above statements. If things had changed, we would clearly state that the markets are no longer projected to rally until the Sept/Oct period. Do not confuse timelines; if anything has changed, we will clearly state so.

So how should one interpret the above statements? Overall the market is still projected to rally until Sept/Oct. In the interim, it will run into resistance in the 3960-4000 ranges. It should be more than evident by now that no market trades in one direction

Another mistake many subscribers make is mixing commentary from our different services. Don’t do that unless you want to confuse yourself and lose money; market commentaries are service specific.

The Dow triggered another Minor buy signal. A much more robust and potent will be triggered if the Dow can end the week above 31,900 or the SPX ends the week at or above 3960. Either one of these developments should lead to a fast and furious rally. One of the indices might even spike to new highs, while the others put in lower highs.

Aggressive players can use all pullbacks ranging in the 380 to 510 ranges to open additional longs or swing trade via leveraged ETFs such as TQQQ, UWM, XBI, etc

The momentum is shifting to the upside, and the markets should generally trend upwards for the next two weeks. Interim Market Update July 18, 2022 (posted in the forum https://tacticalinvestor.com/mu-forum/viewtopic.php?t=53)

A Secondary and more potent buy signal has been triggered. However, a new buy signal on the longer timelines is almost always accompanied by a minor sell signal in the short term.

The SP500 is running into a zone of resistance on the daily charts. This is another clear example of the tree and forest view. We don’t usually look at the daily charts, but from time to time, when a market is attempting to break out, we tend to pay some attention to them. The daily timeline equates to the Tree perspective.

The SP500 could test the 3870-3900 ranges and, barring a black swan event, this would represent another buying opportunity. After that, it is projected to blast through resistance in the 4130 to 4150 ranges, which will/should trigger a robust rally. It will likely test the 4500 to 4600 ranges before topping out. One of the Indices, Dow, Nasdaq, SPX, Russell, etc., could surge to new highs, but most of them are projected to put in lower highs

We are now at the Push stage; the market usually runs into some resistance here. The market will release steam and trend sideways for 3 to 9 trading days.

When the markets get past the “push stage”,; this phase is usually short, fast and furious, especially if the upward move is only part of an overall downward cycle. In other words, the corrective cycle has not run its course. The markets are still projected to rally to the Sept/Oct period; October would be the ideal time for a top.

The plunge stage is expected to be severe. The Dow will likely take out 29K during the next corrective phase. (The second corrective wave is expected to commence around October)

Kick—-Fall—–Base—-Push—-Thrust—-Plateau——Plunge

Conclusion

One should never fixate on short-term gyrations. Think of them as aberrations created to throw you off track. Instead, one should focus on the longer-term or broad market outlook, where the real opportunity lies. Those that focus on the short term are not investors, they are speculators, and their purpose for inception is to serve as cannon fodder. If you want to win, then change the way you think.

The markets are in a short-term corrective phase; barring a black swan event, the rally is expected to gather momentum. Aggressive traders can use pulls backs in the 350 to 550 ranges in the Dow to deploy additional sums into longs. As the number of individuals in the Neutral camp and Bearish camp adds up to 74, it indicates that most investors are still too nervous to bite.

Hence once this corrective phase is over, we will experience a period akin to 2009 to 2020. In simple terms, a period of mind-boggling returns. Market Update July 12, 2022

This will happen, and those who ran away will rue that day for many decades. The next opportunity will likely generate mind-boggling returns for one simple reason. The amount of hot money has increased by a factor of almost 10X. This is based on official figures, but the unofficial statistics indicate that the money supply could have increased by 30X since 2008.
