 Nov 27, 2022, Indicant Weekly Stock Market Report

Volume 11, Issue 04 ISSN 1526 6516 © The Indicant Stock Market Report

 

Fundamentally, Economic Stupidity Is Not Bullish

The Mid-term Indicant force vectors have passed their prevailing bullish peak. They are starting a bearish cycle following a strong bullish surge. That happens all the time, but one attribute is troubling to the stock market bull. Vector pressure remains in bearish domains for stocks and mutual funds that continue enduring an avoid signal. Also, the NASDAQ-(Chart) and NASDAQ100-(Chart) endure the same configurations.

 

The stock market can appear irrational for several weeks despite obvious fundamental confrontations to economic robustness. There are millions that can no longer afford to buy a home due to rising interest rates. With declining demand, housing prices will decline. Many of those incapable of buying a highly desired home voted for those who fed them miniscule comfort during Covid, while yet facilitating their decreasing quality of life. Most people play checkers, while the game of life is chess. Most think in terms of a single “then” to each “if.” There are always many results to a single “if.” Poverty for the masses is the goal of the elites. They do not want you to have resources.

 

Rising interest rates and falling energy supplies will continue dampening the supply of goods and services. Some in the northeast will fall prey to the democratic party’s stimulation of more discomfort this winter. Social media continues to provide disinformation while claiming differing viewpoints as the prime source of disinformation. Fictional representations have always resulted in social decline. The stock market bull cannot dominate with decreasing quality of life.

 

The stock market bull will not continue with high inflation, rising interest rates, and the declining quality of life. The only solution that will invorgate the stock market bull will be impeachment and equal application of the law to all those social and political elites who broke laws. Without that, continuing stupidity will not be rewarded by the stock market bull. Right now, short-term attributes remain bullish with some speculation of altering prevailing political leadership now rather than waiting until the misled masses vote again in 2024. Herschel Walker’s election in Georgia is also influential. Do not be surprised at stock market bearishiness with his defeat.

Weekly Buy/Sell Summary – Stocks and Funds – Last Week

Click this sentence for a graphical summary of what follows of historical buy and sell signals and stock market status.

 

The website has stock market history dating back to 1900.

 

The Mid-term Indicant generated no buy signals and no sell signals this weekend. Clicking this sentence is where the Mid-term Indicant buy and sell signals are displayed.  

 

The Mid-term Indicant is signaling hold for 111 of the 315-stocks and funds tracked by the Indicant. Stocks and funds with hold signals are up an average of 480.6% that annualizes to 92.3%. The Mid-term Indicant has been signaling hold for these 111-stocks and funds for an average of 270.5-weeks. There have been 107 buy signals for stocks and funds so far, this year. Based on the number of stocks and funds tracked by the Indicant, hold signals are 35.2% in the market.

 

The Mid-term Indicant is avoiding 204-stocks and funds of 315-tracked by the Indicant. The avoided stocks and funds are down an average of 8.9% since the Mid-term Indicant signaled sell an average of 64.5-weeks ago. There have been 263-sell signals for stocks and funds so far, this year. Based on the number of stocks and funds tracked by the Indicant, avoid signals are 64.8% out of the market.

 

Comments about Mid-term Indicant Buy and Sell Signals

Those who voted for what they got in 2020 may shift their thinking. However, successful duping of the masses may not reduce political power of prevailing incumbents. If that continues, corruption and related injustice for the masses will expand and the stock market bull will hibernate like the bear did from 1980 through 2020. That 40-year bull can easily be replaced by a 40-year bear.

 

Clicking this sentence will take you to this weekend’s Mid-term Indicant buy/sell signals.

 

The Short-term Indicant signals buy and sell for ETF’s, almost daily, provided the ETFs enjoy a buy signal or endure a sell signal. They are not included in the Mid-term Indicant summaries. These short-term models attempt participation in significant bullish spurts, while the Mid-term Indicant includes fundamentals and longer-term technical data to reject short-term trader nervousness. The Daily Stock Market Report reports status for the short-term model.

 

Economic Conditions – Inflation, Currency, Interest Rates

Click the above heading for a summary of hard economic indicators.

 

Although this paragraph has remained unchanged for several years, do not fall asleep. It will change. It will be significant and dramatic when it does. The markets, both free and controlled, are not constant. Control freaks in political power have 100% potential to create economic and social calamity with their desired result of a police state. That is why they encourage asset destruction. That would give them absolute power. That is never good for anyone but them.

 

Reported CPI is remains unhealthy. The PPI, as reported, is now unfavorably penetrating the stock market bull and the economy. The annual inflation rate is reported at 7.7%. Oil prices are up 24.5% from this time one year ago. Oil is up by $44.09/BBL (+112.5%%) since Biden’s so-called election. Oil is up 31.9% since Biden was sworn in as President of the United States. Oil is down 16.8% since Russian invaded Ukraine on Feb 24, 2022. Biden, not Putin, caused inflation and related higher fuel prices. Without Biden’s surging oil prices, Putin could not have afforded to attack Ukraine and invoke misery on millions. That is what politicians tend to do; invoke misery.

 

The Prime Rate, Discount Rate, and Effective Rate increased 75-basis points on weekending Nov 4, 2022, Sep 23, 2022,  Jul 29, 2022 and Jun 17, 2022, following a 50-basis point increase on weekending May 7, 2022, following a 25-basis points on weekending Mar 18, 2022, which was the first-rate change since the 100-basis points decrease two years earlier on Mar 20, 2020.  Economic damage inflicted by the democratic party, germ warfare from their China pals, and other overstepping U.S. communistic politicians, and the self-proclaimed elites continue manifestation with a hopeful designed pause in the nightmare of a Biden presidency with a democratic congress. The destination to a decreased quality of life has begun. However, a glimmer of hope rests with impeaching the president and the vice-president. The stock market bull is apparently not aroused by this Tuesday’s election.

 

The 3-Month T-Bill shifted to Red Bull status on weekending Jan 28, 2022, after about two and a half years of enduring Yellow Bear status since Jul 19, 2019.  The T-Bill has risen a significant amount the past several weeks to the delight of the stock market bear. That behavior is now more visible on the chart as interest rates continue escaping the gravity of zero in a race to the clouds of stupidity. The prevailing rates are now well above pre-Covid prior peak in June 2019 and about 80% of the way to the pre 2008 peak cycle.

           

The Euro dropped to Yellow Bear status on weekending Oct 22, 2021, after losing Red Bull status on weekending Jul 31, 2021.  It continues residence in the domain of the Yellow Bear, but attempting to overcome Yellow Bear status the past few weeks. The 2024-mean forecast is at $1.15 with more aggressive intrinsic modeling, projecting $0.94 to $0/99.

 

The Canadian dollar moved above Red (weakening) during the week of July 11, 2022, after climbing above Yellow (weakening) nearly one year ago on July 17, 2021. Its 2024-mean forecast is $1.29CA with projected polynomials forecasting much weaker values ranging from $1.71CA to $1.78CA.

 

The Japanese Yen remains above Red since Apr 2, 2021, but falling (strengthening) the past few weeks. Its narrow min-max points from 2017 through mid-2021 remains impressive with that tightness continuing through September 2021, when some additional weakening occurred. It continues to be escaping that tight trading range from 2017 through mid-2021. It weakened severely the week of Apr 4, 2022. It, like most currencies, was stable during Trump’s era and now American made products are less competitive during the Biden era, as all major foreign currencies are weakening much to the delight of those foreign governments. Its statistical mean forecast is at 120-yen/dollar by Dec 2024 while the aggressive polynomials are projecting a range of 146-151-Yen/U.S. dollar.

 

The British Pound fell to Yellow Bear status as of Mar 11, 2022. It has been strengthening against the U.S. dollar the past few weeks. Its statistical mean forecast is at $1.28 with more aggressive polynomials, projecting around $1.00-$1.04 by Dec 2024. The last bearish cycle was deeper than the prior one suggesting a trend reversal favoring its bearishness.

 

The Bitcoin fell to Yellow Bear status on week ending May 20, 2022 for the first time since early 2020. However, it bounced above Yellow during the week of Jul 11, 2022. After that bearishness, it continued holding at around $20,000 but now settling around the $16,000 range.

                       

Gold endured Yellow Bear status on weekending July 8, 2022.  That is contrarian behavior to its normal increase during inflationary periods. The Dec 2024-mean forecast is $1,800/oz. while the more aggressive polynomials are projecting a Dec 2024 value approximating $1,289-$1,500/oz. You can keep up with an approximation of this on the Indicant Daily Stock Market Report by tracking ETF#11-GLD.

 

Oil lost Red Bull status on weekending Aug 11, 2022 after regaining Red Bull status on weekending Dec 31, 2020. That bold movement correlated with Biden moving to the White House. OPEC, Putin, and others are attempting to help democrats retain control of Congress by lowering oil prices ahead of the mid-term elections. Oil is now nearing Yellow Bear status as political policies are being designed to decrease the loss of votes for incumbent candidates. That was done by misallocating the strategic petroleum reserves.

 

The CRB Bridge Futures lost Red Bull status on weekending Sep 22, 2022 after regaining that lofty status on Dec 31, 2020, and after abandoning Yellow Bear status on the week of August 3, 2020. That correlated well with a dumb voting populace and vote cheaters supporting the communistic takeover attempt of the U.S. It is now aggressively contributing to inflation. Also, it strengthened during the week of the U.S. election. It is about to increase again, as the election is over and the incumbents no longer needing votes.

 

Mortgage rates regained Red Bull status on weekending Mar 12, 2021, after falling into Yellow Bear status on weekending Apr 12, 2019.  As of weekending Dec 3, 2021, they were weak Red Bulls, but now increasingly militant to future home buyers. This no longer remains a “great” time to finance real estate. However, it is still arguably a “good” time, as interest rates will be triple prevailing levels before 2024 if prevailing politicians continue doing what they are doing. Impeachment is no longer possible with the recent elections. With that, you can expect continuing rising rates.

 

The consumer price index and producer price index are now computing with the combined absolute value of threatening interest rates and inflation or deflation of 8%. That is not bullish and as you have seen, it has been outright bearish.

 

Mid-term Indicant Positions – Ten U.S. Indices

There were no new bull signals and no new bears this past week.

 

The eight bulls are up by an average of 4.4% since the Mid-term Indicant signaled bull three weeks ago, annualizing at 57.5%. The two bears are down by an average of 3.2% since their bear signals an average of 12.0-weeks ago.  

 

The Mid-term Indicant Dow Jones Industrial Average performance is at $71.8 million. That beats buy and hold performance of $5.4 million on a $10,000 investment in the Dow stocks in 1900. The MTI S&P500 is at $4.4 million. That beats buy and hold’s $1.7 million on a Jan 6, 1950, $10,000 investment. The MTI-NASDAQ is at $2.7 million. That beats buy and hold’s $1.12 million on a Jan 29, 1971, $10,000 investment.  The MTI-Dow Transports is at $42.8-million. That is better than buy and hold $1.09 million since a $10,000 investment on Oct 19, 1928. The Mid-term Indicant model beats buy and hold by 1,326.0%, 251.9%, 238.1%, and 3,953%, respectively, for these indices as of this past week.

 

There are two reasons why the Dow Transport index is included in the above summary. It is used by the Dow Theory Forecast, which has merit, albeit slowly. The second reason is the statistical friendliness and its near-perfect sinusoidal waves. It tends to stay committed to its underlying cycle of bullishness or bearishness more than other indices.

 

The Indicant’s percentage advantage over buy and hold does not change during bull signals as buy and hold and the Indicant moves at the same magnitude. The Indicant’s advantage only occurs during bear signals as the cash holds constant, while the stock market dives.

The Mid-term Indicant signaled sell for MF#22-ProFunds Ultra Short on April 3, 2009. It is down 99.8% since then. Although this is classically presidential post-election-year hold, the Mid-term Indicant was unable to signal buy and hold during 2009, 2013, 2017, and 2021 as the stock market bear remained in hibernation, for the most part, in those four presidential post-election years. Interest rates fell to historical lows in the 2008/9 recession and have persisted since then and thus giving rise to equity attractiveness to investors. Recent elections are highlighting left leaning political movements. The return of politburo wannabes in congress will offer this fund and others like it, profound growth opportunities at some future point, but not right now, even with the coronavirus inflicting damage to the economy and the corrupt election of the democratic (communist) party. Keep in mind, politburos confiscate. They are already confiscating your freedom. Conditions are mounting favoring strong profit potential in this economic climate, despite the newly forming political threat by the communistic movement now underway with the guise of climate change, racism, China virus-Covid rules, etc. Sociopathic political leadership is more common than not throughout recorded history. The presidential post-election year of 2021 successfully argued against historical trends of stock market bearishness. Low interest rates continue being credited with this and should be referred to as the Bernanke/Trump bull. Rest assured lying politicians take credit. And, as always, a populace believing the lies will eventually pay the price. Russia’s desire to dominate others is a new opportunity for this fund, as long as the dominated are not Americans. In that case, nothing has value, including gold.

Long Term Indicant Positions - Dow Jones Industrial Average

The blue-chip Long-term Indicant Bull signal was at 2895 for the DJIA in November 1991. Keep in mind the Long-term Indicant generated only five bull/bear cycles since 1920.

 

The Dow is up 1096.5%, annualized at 34.9% since the Long-term Indicant signaled bull 1,621-weeks ago. Economic data is the primary influence on the Long-term Indicant. Recessions, deflation, inflation, and unreasonable interest rates have not been strong enough to signal bear since that bull signal, including relative performance since that bull signal. Even with today’s economy and stock market position, the 1991 investor is still up triple digit amounts, which remains above average performance when considering long-term planning.

 

Influencing parameters in the LTI include prior bull cycles. The great bull market in the 1990’s was powerful enough to offset the 2008-2009 recessionary bear market in this long-term modeling.

Short-term Indicant Stock Market Report Summary

Nov 25-Short-term force vectors continue to move bearishly, but vector pressure is safely in bullish domains. With that, the stock market bull remains intact on a technical basis, but without fundamental cause for bullishness. Such technical bulls can enjoy durations of several weeks. As long as blue bull status remains configured, the stock market bull will prevail. Once blue bull status is lost, the next bear signal will be generated.

Indicant Conclusion

The short-tem cycle remains bullish, albeit with weak configurations. The primary concern at this point are falling mid-term cycle force vectors.

Stop Loss Management

This was moved to the bottom of this report as its content rarely changes. You will be notified when stop losses should be tightened or loosened.

 

The Mid-term Indicant recommends a trailing stop loss of 8% for holds with less than a 20% unrealized capital gain. Of course, this includes new buys. Stop losses shortly after buying are the trickiest. Right after buying, set the stop loss at the greater value of 8% or green curve values, depending on your personal preferences.

 

For your longer-term holdings, where you are enjoying triple and quadruple digit gains, you may want to set your stop at the bearish yellow price. Do not worry if you stop out. New opportunities always emerge. The idea is to minimize losses.

 

Floor traders are aware of stop loss positions. If prices near those stop losses against the grain of directional bias, the floor traders will drive the price down to those stop losses and then buy for themselves and then quickly sell for profits at your expense. Although seemingly immoral, it is the nature of free markets and contributes to the desired liquidity of stock markets. This is one reason why stop losses should be well below prevailing prices but well above your buy price. That perfection, of course, is not attainable shortly after buying, which is the most dangerous period for holding. Use the Blue and Green curves or a combination thereof for stop loss management shortly after buying. Long after a successful buy, monitor prices relative to the bearish yellow curve. That will minimize the number of trades, while protecting portfolio values.

 

For new buys, set stop losses at the blue or green values in the tables. If green is deeply lagging the prevailing price, you may want to average the blue and green prices for your stop losses. If the green curve is rising and above your buy price, set the stop loss just below it. Green is a common bouncing point. Consider a stop loss a percentage below its value. Once green passes above your buy price, then adjust your stop losses, periodically, say weekly, at or just below green. Once yellow passes above your buy price, you should set the stop loss at the yellow price. That is a good tactic when longer-term holding positions are supported with expected fundamentals and your enjoyment of owning a piece of a great company or fund.

 

If your stop loss triggered sell, while Indicant continues signaling hold, normal advice would be to buy again. However, if the Near-term Indicant is signaling bear/avoid in related sectors, it is better to wait for specific buy signals from the Mid-term Indicant. In other words, other opportunities will emerge.

Do not get lazy and set those stop losses for those stocks and funds that continue to enjoy hold signals.
