Blac Monday DeJavu: More like 1987 stock market crash recovery

We could not help ourselves and put the word stock market crash in the title because every Tom, Dick and Harry is now chanting this tune. They want you to think that we are on the verge of Black Monday Dejavu. However, these same penguins fail to state that Astute investors that focussed on a 1987 stock market crash recovery are the ones that made a killing.

And the list goes on and on.

The Naysayers are busy listing several factors that in their opinion does not bode well for the market

  • Ultra-low oil prices: we are told that low oil prices are bad for the economy. Hold on, was it not too long ago they were telling us that high oil prices were bad for the economy, so which one is it. Many oil companies will go bankrupt, but the ones that are left will emerge strong and be ready for the next bullish phase.  It is because oil prices are low that car sales jumped and set a record last year; 17.5 million vehicles were sold and many consumers started purchasing Gas guzzlers they were avoiding before due to high gas prices. Ultra-low oil prices are the equivalent of central bankers injecting roughly $1 trillion dollars into the global financial system, as that is how much the global economy will save at these rates.

  • The China factor; China’s economy is slowing down, and so the fear is that this could have a significant impact on our economy.
  • A big deal is being made over China’s slowing economy; this growth is something every developed economy can only dream off. S. Corporations export roughly $500 billion years worth of goods to China. We have an $18 trillion economy, so this is a drop in the bucket and nothing to panic over.
  • Uncertainty after the Fed’s raised rates. For crying out loud, the Fed only raised rates by a paltry 0.25%, and they can immediately turn around and reverse their position if they wanted. However, in our opinion, even another 2-3 rates will do nothing to derail this economy as rates are being raised from ultra-low

1987 stock market crash Recovery Should Be The Keywords to Focus on

Let us take a pause and think about the current situation.  Have we not seen this before?  The theme is always the same, something bad is going to happen a stock market crash is imminent, take cover and run for the hills. Sure, in the short-term the markets have experienced some violent moves, but fast forward, in every case, the markets recouped and traded higher.  People will mention Japan as an example of a market that is still trying to play catch up decades later. Once again let us reiterate that traders that focussed on a 1987 stock market crash recovery were the ones that laughed their way to the bank.

Well, what happened in Japan happened in a different era? We are now in the era of devaluing or die, in other words, every nation is hell-bent on debasing its currency or it is being forced to because major players have jumped on the bandwagon. In such an environment, normal rules, do not apply, and central bankers usually respond by flooding the markets with money.  Regardless of this issue, look at this long-term chart of the Dow and it clearly illustrates that every so-called disaster was nothing but a buying opportunity.

Long Term Every Crash is an Opportunity to Profit from

Stock Market Crash 1929-is the Dow headed for a repeat of 1929

We have never advocated buying right at the top; our theme was to view strong pullbacks as buying opportunities to open new positions. Has the situation changed so much since last year? Are we also going to join the pack of naysayers?  Before we answer that question, let’s examine the issue of volatility. Last year we emphasised several times that volatility was going to be a major issue as our Volatility Indicator had soared into record territory.  In fact, in early Jan, we republished comments that we had sent out to our subscribers in Dec 2015, listed below

Our V indicator has surged to yet another high, so extreme volatility is here to stay. In fact, 2016 will probably be remembered as the most volatile year on record.

Volatility is a two-way street; this means that one should expect large price swings on both ends of the scale. Given the run up the markets have experienced over the past seven years, the current correction while strong is nothing to panic over.

Technical outlook

Black Monday Dejavu will be a great buying opportunity if it comes to pass

Panic is the code word for opportunity

It goes without saying, that the traders are panicking, and that market psychology in the short term has taken a beating. However, the short-term and long-term is not the same.   Last week we noted that the volume on most down days was significantly lower than the volume on up days.  It appears someone is stepping in and buying; could this be the smart money in action? Time will tell.

On the short term timelines, the markets are oversold so a relief rally could take hold anytime.  Both the MACD’s and Relative strength indicator are trading in the oversold ranges. The MACDS are about to make a bullish crossover.  Given the strength of the correction, there is a good chance that we have not seen the lows as yet.  The Dow is likely to rally to the 16700-16900 ranges before pulling back and trading below the current lows.   The drop to below the August lows should drive out all the Bulls, setting up the bedrock for a bottom and a move to higher prices.

Build a list of top-notch companies you would love to own

As we stated in several of our past updates, expect 2016 to be the most volatile year on record to date.  Now is the time to build up a nice list of stocks that you always wanted to own but felt were too expensive to buy. History indicates that the stronger the markets deviate from the norm, the better the buying opportunity. Here is a small list of stocks that have held up remarkably well during the current sell-off; PBY, IGLD, PRMW, MCD, JNJ, etc.

Update: Stock Market Commentary August 1, 2019

One needs to understand that it takes time to get used to the principles of mass psychology as it disregards many of the so-called laws of financial wisdom, most of which, if one is truthful, would fall under the category of rubbish.
The only real law that applies when it comes to the financial market is that there is no law. We are dealing with emotions and when emotions run amok, all hell breaks loose, that is why like cattle, the masses always stampede when the markets sell-off and all of them jump in when the bubble is about to pop. Hundreds of years have passed since the Tulip bubble and nothing has changed.

We have simplified the most important aspect of investing, and that is identifying the trend of the markets. If you ask any investor, who has put money into the markets, what’s the hardest part of investing, they will answer without hesitation that determining the trend is the hardest part of the investing process. Many individuals don’t fully understand how much time and effort we allocate to determining the trend. It is a complex process that entails examining several factors and then all these separate pieces of data are combined to help determine the trend.

Tactical Investor Investment  Strategy

Once the trend is identified the rest of the investing process is relatively easy.   We issue many plays and the reason for this is simple. It provides every new trader with an option to identify plays that appeal to them. It is not easy to get rid of past conceptions and embrace new ideas.  This process takes times, and therefore, we are trying to make it easier by providing such a vast array of plays. Now instead of being overwhelmed by the number of plays, one should understand that one does not need to open a position in all the plays. Choose those that appeal to you and ignore the rest until you get used to our methodology. As you gain confidence you can deploy larger amounts of capital.
