Market Sentiment: Is Turning too bullish

market sentiment

September has, in part, lived up to its name as being one of the worst months of the year. While September might be the worst month of the year, the most volatile month is October. This year, the volatility might extend to early November. Hence, traders should prepare themselves to deal with an extra dose of volatility. Still, after this phase, the markets are expected to mount a robust rally. Market Update September 30, 2021

This pattern of rising volatility will continue until the MACD’s undergo a bullish crossover or the bullish sentiment drops below 20. One final option is for neutral sentiment to soar to the 48 to 51 ranges; the higher, the better. If one or more of these conditions are met, volatility levels should drop significantly and potentially trigger an explosive upward move.

The deeper the MACD’s and the RSI move into the oversold zones, the better the opportunity. Given that both the MACD’s and RSI are trending downwards, the markets are holding up remarkably well. Once this corrective phase is over, the most likely follow through outcome is a potent rally.

Bearish sentiment surged upwards, so the markets could/should rally for another 3 to 6 days. The clock started on Friday. Market Update September 30, 2021

The above outlook has come to pass. The Dow has tacked on roughly 1000 points since the last update was sent out. We are tabulating the current data, but it looks like bullish sentiment will come in below its historical average. This volatile action should remain in effect until the 21st of this month. Ideally, it continues until early November, when the masses will be driven insane with uncertainty. If Neutral sentiment soared to 48 or higher, we would take it as a clear signal that a bottom is in and that the old highs will be taken out.

The silent correction theory continues to gain traction. Market Update September 30, 2021

The silent correction hypothesis continues to hold true. The two charts below add more credibility to this hypothesis. Additionally, as we stated previously, many tech stocks took it to the chin. They shed in some cases more than 30% from high to low. We also noted that many of these stocks would recover from those losses twice as fast. Take a look at the stunning recovery many Tech Stocks have mounter over the past few weeks.

52 weeks highs

The experts were almost dead sure the markets would crash in September, but they were all bark with no bite as usual. The current pullback at its worst point in September cannot even be classified as a minor correction. At best, it was nothing but a hiccup.

The Dow would have to shed at least 7% before one could hope to label the pullback as a minor correction. However, many stocks experienced brutal corrections shedding over 30% in some cases. Two things stand out here. The markets traded lower in Sept, but the McClellan Index put in a higher low. Secondly, we have a positive divergence signal.

Conclusion

When uncertainty rules the roost, market volatility is a traders/investors best friend. The trend is your friend; everything else is your foe. Market Update September 30, 2021

The current pullback is a non-event. We would not blink until the Dow shed at least 4500 points. Until then, everything that occurs should be classified as a hiccup or a non-event. However, many stocks had shed an enormous amount of weight which seems to validate the silent correction theory we put forward before the markets started to pull back.

Our anxiety index has moved deeper into the panic zone. Bullish sentiment readings are well below their historical average. The experts all claim that a brutal correction is around the corner. The likely outcome is that the markets continue trending sideways to further confound the bulls and the bears. Sideways action, in this day and age, entails a lot of volatility. The markets could trade between a narrow range but experience rapid moves of 250 to 600 points in both directions within a 24-to-48-hour period. Such action would drive most individuals insane, and the uncertainty levels would soar. This is the most favoured outcome as its effects are long-lasting. By the time the crowd snaps out of its stupor, the markets will be trading close to new highs. Higher Neutral sentiment readings equate to a rise in uncertainty.
