Bullish Market: A Stock Market Crash is this just an Illusion

Stock Market Bulls-Stock Market fools-Market Crash next or is this just an Illusion: better wake up 

Are We In A bear or Bull Market?

Bullish Market Outlook

Updated Dec 2022 

The short answer is we are in a bullish phase.

Since the markets bottomed in 2009, one naysayer after another has penned many an obituary for this market. All those obituaries were based on fantasy and false perceptions; the bull is alive and kicking while many experts are either bankrupt or have bankrupted their clients several times over. We repeatedly stated over the years that the era of low interest fostered an environment that favoured speculation over hard work.

This is why many companies have opted to boost EPS via share buyback programs. Why work when you can create the impression of growth through the magic of accounting when there is none? All is well, and when it ends, only the workers and the masses will lose, for the corporate wenches will walk away with bloated accounts.

A Rate Hike Will Not derail bullish Market Forces.

Despite the latest rate hike and the insane ramblings from the Fed that they are ready to raise rates more aggressively, yes, we heard this last time, and nothing happened for over a year. The economy is sick and only appears to thrive because of the hot money flowing into the markets to support it. This helps foster the illusion that all is well when everything is falling apart.

Hence, while the Fed talks big, its bite will be weak.  We could provide more reasons why the economy is weak, such as the fake unemployment data the BLS tries to get the masses to swallow, but all of this is irrelevant.

The trend of hot money is in play, and until the hot money supply is stopped (cut), this bull market will continue to trend higher.  This market will not trend higher forever; it will eventually run into a solid brick wall.  There is no point in fixating on what will happen one day when it’s far more profitable to focus on the now.

Bullish Market: Three Charts Back This Assertion

SOX, Semiconductor index in strong uptrend, Dow industrial ready to surge to new highs

The semiconductor sector needs to be in a strong uptrend for a market to rally on a prolonged basis. A quick look at the above chart (semiconductor index) shows that the index is in an adamant uptrend. It is trading above its primary uptrend line and has continued to trade to new highs over the past five years. It could drop to 650, and the outlook would remain bullish.

Dow Transports ready to break out to new highs. Stock market bull alive 2017

IYT (an ETF that mimics the Transports) is trending upwards again after experiencing a cleansing correction.  A monthly close above 165 will pave the way for a test of the 195-205 ranges.

Finally, as we stated in the alternative Dow theory, the Utilities appear to be getting ready to trend higher.

Dow Utilities ready to surge to new highs 2017

As they are coming out of a correction, they will likely play around the 625-640 ranges before breaking out. The utilities lead the way up, so a breakout to new highs should be observed. If they break out to new highs, it would indicate that after a correction that could range from mild to intense, the Dow industrials should follow the same path.

 Stock Market Crash will have to be put off for another day.

Stock Market Crash will have to be put off for another day

The Drs of doom will continue to chant the same monotonous and agonisingly painful song of death; instead of the markets collapsing, they will be handed their heads on a platter again. If you had listened to these fools masquerading as experts, you would have bankrupted yourself several times.  This bull market will end, but that day is not upon us yet.

The supply of hot money needs to be eliminated, and more importantly, the masses have to embrace this bull market. Over the short term, the markets have gotten slightly ahead of themselves, so some bloodletting probably next year would not surprise us. However, a correction and a crash are not the same things, something the Naysayers have difficulty recognising or coming to terms with.  When the markets start to pull back again, they will feel emboldened and crawl out of the woodwork, screaming the same rubbish they always do. Don’t listen to them; we can even provide a small preview of what will happen.

Strong Pullbacks are Opportunities

The lower the markets pull back, the more courageous these fools will become; they will start to spew ridiculous targets, and the masses will buy into this rubbish as they always do. Remember, it takes one to cry, two to tango and three to have a party; just when it looks like the naysayers will be vindicated, the markets will bottom and reverse course.

These poor fools will then have the sharp displeasure of watching all their profits vanish into thin air.  They would have lost all their money several times if they had followed their advice. Hence, they are not following their advice and singing a false song of misery but not putting their money into the game. The truth is not always easy to spot, but it should set you free when you spot it.

Those that think it hurts are living in a world of denial as they still cling to the old ways hoping that, like a broken clock, they might have the chance to be correct. The trend is your friend, and rubbish is your foe; trend wisely.

Have the courage to be ignorant of a great number of things in order to avoid the calamity of being ignorant of everything. Sydney Smith
