Attributes Are Shifting Bullishly, Despite Witch-Doctoring Lunacy

All but one force vector is moving in a bullish direction supporting the stock market bull. That is solidly bullish. Although reflective with 20-20-hindsight, this shift to bullish bias this past week can be traced to the debt ceiling being raised at least through December. Despite the resulting erosion to the U.S. dollar and extraordinary punishment to the middle class, the stock market bull is comfortable with some form of stability. Not one republican voted for the increased debt ceiling. The democratic (communist) party did that on their own.

 

Some attributes along the mid-term cycle are not enthusiastic about supporting the stock market bull. One reason is technical, but the fundamental reason for the technical configuration is the debt ceiling debate is not over. Another vote is required in December which ties to the democratic (communist) party to generate a very wasteful multi-trillion spending bill that has nothing to do with nothing.

 

Since the beginning of time, pontificators have caused many problems and not one witch doctor has solved any problem. Pontificators are direct descendants of witch doctors. All problems confronting all societies since the beginning of humankind were solved by capitalists. All problems confronting all societies since the beginning of humankind were caused by witch-doctoring pontificators. Whale’s in the oceans should be grateful to Nikola Tesla’s development of AC Current. If Nikola had not done that, witch doctors, such as AOC, would be complaining about the declining population of whales. She and her similarly limited IQ had nothing to do with saving the whales.

 

Gasoline, once a waste product in the production of kerosene, was put to good use by creative capitalistic minded people. They developed the internal combustion engine to make good use of gasoline. Those capitalists directly were involved in saving witch doctor, Bernie Sanders, when he was driven to the hospital using an internal combustion engine after his heart attack. With global warming, why did he not walk himself to the hospital for heart attack treatment to make his point on the evils of the internal combustion engine?

 

Witch doctors are incapable of inventing anything. They tend to live a good life off the great inventions of capitalists while pontificating they have a higher intelligence or a closer alliance to God than you have. The only goal of witch doctors is to make a good living while controlling and confiscating from those willing to listen to them. Bernie Sanders, and those congruent with his belief system, are a much more serious threat to humanity than any subject they pontificate about.

 

The last real significant witch doctor was Karl Marx. All he did was pontificate. Those societies (E.g., Russia), following his philosophy would have been completely annihilated in WWII if they did not use the internal combustion engine to power their armored vehicles against the German front. It is amazing that any rational person would support Marxist’s principles while at the same time making daily use of products made by capitalists, like old Bernie does every day.

 

Well, rationality and commonsense are not common. Witch doctor, Bernie Sanders, with strong Marxist’s beliefs wears clothes made by capitalists, as opposed to hunting game and skinning his kills for his clothing. If you were in his tribe 800-years ago, he would take your kill and eat it and then tell you to make his clothing. Of course, you would resist and that is one cause of many wars since the beginning of humanity. The other is resources. Bernie eats and speaks with a low effort life. Low effort is causation to increased witch-doctoring in all sorts of movements, while the capitalists have their heads down working long hours and doing something meaningful.

 

Bernie, the witch doctor, is incapable of explain the absence of snow on the French Alps around 200 B.C. There were no fossil fuels then. Since that is true, why was there no snow for about a hundred years or so? Bernie’s background suggests zero ability to answer that question. Witch doctors do not study and analyze facts. They simply want to control other people with their nonsensical pontifications. So, for about $3-trillion to $6-trillion, the witch doctors tell believing lunatics, they are going to solve the problem. Witch doctors have never solved any problem. On the contrary, their witch doctoring will create problems.

 

The stock market does not care, yet, about that lunacy. It only cares about corporate earnings in the next six to nine-months. Even though, it is possible to project economic calamity in the next three to ten years, it is outside the stock market’s horizon of caring. The stock market does not care about the eventuality of economic collapse until about six to nine months before it occurs. Right now, force vectors are suggesting corporate earnings are projected to be okay for the next six to nine months. Large caps enjoyed bull signals along the short-term cycle this week along with several near-term buy signals for ETF’s.

 

Mid-term Indicant Status of the Major Indices

The major stock market indices can be accessed by clicking this sentence.

Click this sentence to review how to understand the below terms.

 

Click this sentence to understand the details on the charts.

 

Mid-term Indicant Red Bulls-Click for Explanation1): 9-Red Bulls, 1-Non-Red Bulls

Comment: One Red Bull expired on weekending Sep 25, 2021. It was the DJU-(Chart). No other Red Bulls have yet to expire from the post Covid bull. The nine Red Bulls are averaging 13.8% above the bullish red curve. Red Bulls cannot endure bear signals. With that, the stock market can drop approximately by 13.8% before enduring bear signals.

 

Mid-term Indicant Blue Bulls-Click for Explanation2): 7-Blue Bulls, 3-Non-Blue Bulls

            Comment: Blue Bulls regained majority after four weeks of enduring a minority position. The seven Blue Bulls are above Blue by 0.7%. The three non Blue Bulls are below Blue by 2.0%. The seven baby Blue Bulls are very weak.

 

Mid-term Indicant Yellow Bears-Click for Explanation3): 0-Yellow Bears, 10-Non-Yellow Bears

              Comment: All major indices are above Yellow by an average of 45.2%. The absence of Yellow Bears strongly suggest economic depression is not possible now. Stock market dynamics are never wrong in predicting that, but sometimes predicts a non-existing recession. Recession or not, the Indicant’s focus is to avoid bears. It will not wait for a 45.2% drop before signaling bear. Rest assured a future Yellow Bear lurks, but not along the mid-term horizon at this time. Also, keep in mind, severe stock market bears can drop 50.0% in a matter of weeks, while a stock market bull’s 50% increase is much slower. Keep in mind a 50% drop requires a 100% increase to displace the 50% drop.

 

Mid-term Indicant Green Bears-Click for Explanation4): 0-Green Bears, 10-Non-Green Bears

              Comment: Non-existing green bears are non-bearish. The ten major indices are above green by 6.1%. Green is where a bear is typically signaled, but it rises quickly, making it unlikely a bear signal would be triggered after a 6.1% stock market drop. As earlier stated, Red Bulls are immune to bear signals. Green prices rose faster than market prices the past several weeks. With that, the next bear signal will not occur until prices fall below Red.

 

Mid-term Indicant Red to Green Position5): 1-Red Higher than Green; 9-Greens Higher Than Red

              Comment: The lone major red curve, belonging to the DJU-(Chart), is above the green curve. Each Green crossing above Red evinces overbought market conditions. The DJU’s recent bearishness suggests it will not have the opportunity for its green curve to eclipse its red curve. (The DJU was strongly bullish last week, but bearish on last Friday’s strong bull market expression).

 

Mid-term Indicant Force Vector Position6): 3-bullish domain, 7-bearish domains

              Comment:  As of weekending Oct 2, 2021, none of the force vectors were in bullish domains, offering minimal resistance to the ambitions of the stock market bear. The S&P600-(Chart) climbed into bullish domains on weekending Oct 8, 2021 and two more indices joined this desired attribute by the stock market bull.

 

Mid-term Indicant Force Vector Relative to Vector Pressure7): 5-above pressure, 5-below pressure

              Comment: On weekending Oct 2, 2021, stock market force was weakened below stock market pressure. This is increasingly supportive of the stock market bull.

           

Mid-term Indicant Vector Pressure Position8): 4-bullish domains, 6-bearish domains

              Comment: The stock market bull’s aggression is without much effort when all major indices are inside bullish domains. There is some more work required since the majority remains in bearish domains.

 

Mid-term Indicant Force Vector Direction9): 9-bullishly directed, 1-bearishly directed

              Comment: This is increasingly supportive of the stock market bull.

 

Mid-term Indicant Vector Pressure Direction10): 3-bullishly directed, 7-bearishly directed

            Comment: The stock market bull desires more pressure points moving into a bullish direction.

Mid-term Indicant Configured Condition of Major Indices: Red Bulls continue dominating and as long as that remains in effect the stock market bull cannot be defeated by the stock market bear. Several attributes shifted in support of the stock market bull, but there is more work to sustain a continuation of the stock market bull.

 

Weekly Buy/Sell Summary – Stocks and Funds – Last Five Years

Click this sentence for a graphical summary of what follows in this section. It highlights historical performance since 2002. Simply scroll down the webpage to see graphical and detail content of this section. The below describes the same for the past five years. If a particular year interest you, click this sentence, which will show you all of the prior weekly reports dating back to 2002 along with Indicant performance levels at the time of those reports. From there, you can click the year of interest and then to the specific time-period you are interested in. Please note that after the Weekly Stock Market Report, dated Aug 12, 2018, ten years of history was replaced with five years of history. Again, historical weekly reports, dating to 2002 remain available on the website. As 2008’s great bear market fades beyond the 10th anniversary, just as the NASDAQ’s 2002 drop of 89% was also no longer reported in 2012, it is no longer necessary to report 2008 here. These historical references, however, do remain on the website. The website has stock market history dating back to 1900.

There were five buy signals and one sell signal at this time of year in 2020.  There had been 222-buy signals and 247-sell signals throughout the year on this weekend in 2020. Based on the number of stocks and funds tracked by the Indicant, holds were 73.4% in the market and avoids were 26.6% out of the market, as the COVID-19-stock market bear continued being obliterated by the stock market bull.

The above performance reflects status at the time of the updates. Abandoned securities have no impact to the above performance statistics and the historical report card. They always represent status at the time of that status and never changes. When securities become NLT (no longer traded), their performance levels are excluded from the report card at the time they become NLT. There are no retroactive adjustments. The number of stocks and funds tracked from week to week may differ because they are no longer traded or listed on major stock exchanges.     

 

The Indicant started retaining records of abandoned stocks and funds in 2012. There are advantages of retaining records by expressing the consequences of an organization employing dilettante management and related corporate leeching. All organizations eventually expire. The primary causes of such expirations are corporate leeching, stupidity, and arrogance (without cause). {Note: the same is true of governments that fall prey to either economic leeching (FDR) and/or excessive egomaniacal behavior by its leaders (Hitler)}.

Comments about Mid-term Indicant Buy and Sell Signals

Signaling buy and sell has been minimal for several months due to a very strong bull cycle beginning in April 2020. That bull cycle was with large breadth. The few bottom dwellers are not yet configuring with bullish attributes. Bottom dweller buy signals have been muffled as the stock market bull lost momentum in the past few months. The 2020-21 bull cycle is unprecedented with the strategic implication of strongly increasing capitalism. It may be followed by a stronger bear cycle. Capitalists increase the quality of life. Communist and socialists decrease it. That latter two, if unchecked, result in no meaningful stock market. All goes to zero.

 

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 ETF’s 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. The control freaks in political power now have 100% potential to create economic and social calamity with their desired result of a police state. That would give them absolute power. That is never good for anyone but them.

 

Although increasing above Obama economic sluggishness, the reported CPI remains relatively healthy, despite recent notable inflation. The PPI remains non-threatening to the stock market bull. A democratic controlled congress with a lunatic democratic president adds profound inflationary threats. Despite the eventuality of some factors, inflation remains tame for the time being, as it is being reported, but starting to accelerate as of weekending Apr 17, 2021. The annual inflation rate is being reported at 5.4%. Oil prices are up 100.3% from this time one year ago. Oil is up $45.40/BBL (+126.0%) since Biden’s so-called election.

 

The Prime Rate, Discount Rate, and Effective Rate decreased by 100-basis points over a year ago on Mar 20, 2020, following a 50-basis point cut on weekending Mar 6, 2020.  That followed less aggressive decreases on Aug 2, 2019, Sep 19, 2019, and Nov 2, 2019. These less aggressive decreases were miniscule to the increases on Dec 23, 2016, Mar 17, 2017, Jun 15, 2017, Dec 15, 2017, Mar 23, 2018, Jun 15, 2018, Sep 30, 2018, and Dec 21, 2018. High unemployment, germ warfare from China, overstepping U.S. communistic politicians, and self-proclaimed elites continue confronting the stock market bull. So far, the markets are not believing these threats are sustainable for at least the next nine-months. The Federal Reserve Board announced in early 2021 they will be reactive to economic conditions, as opposed to attempting to forecast them. That is okay because the Fed has never been good at forecasting. They eat well regardless of their performance.

 

The 3-Month T-Bill fell to Yellow Bear status on weekending Jul 19, 2019.  After falling deeper into the domain of the Yellow Bear, it started a rebound attempt on weekending Jan 10, 2020, but fell deeper into the domain of the Yellow Bear on weekending Mar 6, 2020, under the influence of China’s germ warfare, called Covid-19, and rapidly falling even more after that and below zero on weekending Mar 19, 2020, with a small bounce north of zero on weekending Apr 3, 2020. Since then, it remains near zero. However, it finally climbed out of that status on weekending Feb 12, 2021, while still in bottom-feeding mode. That is about to change. If it does not, inflation will occur. The charts show some small upward movements at the bottom. The stock market right now favors inflation over rising interest rates. Inflation is okay with the stock market bull for a period. So far, all is okay, but a bit shaky.

           

The Euro lost Red Bull status on weekending Jul 31, 2021, after regaining it on weekending Jun 18, 2020. It is approaching Yellow Bear status again, but in a non-threatening way. It is now moving a bit bullishly just above Yellow. The 2024-mean forecast is at $1.17 with more aggressive intrinsic modeling, projecting $0.80 to $0.81.

 

The Canadian dollar bounced above Yellow (weakening) during the week of July 17, 2021. That is the first bounce above Yellow since Sep 21, 2020. Its 2024-mean forecast is $1.30CA with projected polynomials forecasting much weaker values ranging from $2.00CA to $2.09CA.

 

The Japanese Yen discontinued its steady three-year long downward drift (strengthening) from 2018 through 2020. It continues mild weakening since crossing above Red on Apr 2, 2021. Its narrow min-max points since 2017 remain impressive with that tightness continuing to the present. Its statistical mean forecast is at 109-yen/dollar by Dec 2024 while the aggressive polynomials are projecting a range of 157-164-Yen/U.S. dollar. It also strengthened during the week of the U.S. presidential election but has been holding above Red the past few weeks (weakening).

 

The British Pound enjoyed Red Bull status on the week of August 3, 2020, for the first time in over a year. It was not comfortable there and fell below Red on Sep 10, 2020, but regained Red Bull status on Nov 20, 2020. It remains configured with overcoming repeating cycles of weakening with Red Bull attributes. They are no longer strong, but yet persistent. Its statistical mean forecast is at $1.32 with more aggressive polynomials, projecting around $0.79-$0.84 by Dec 2024. Since its mid-June 2016 BREXIT vote, it drifted bearishly, which has been its direction since its peak in 2008. It also strengthened during the week of the 2020 U.S. election and continues to do so and dynamically so. The U.S. is moving toward the land of yellow teeth and perhaps even worse.

 

The Bitcoin skyrocketed during the week of Nov 30, 2020 and again during the weeks of Dec 13, 2020 and Dec 20, 2020 and again in early Feb 2021. After climbing to over $60,000 on Mar 11, 2021, it has been relatively stable until the past two weeks with a solid jump from $47,521 on Sep 30, 2021 to $57,691 late this past week.

                       

Gold endured Yellow Bear status on weekending Apr 2, 2021 and rejected that on weekending Apr 23, 2021.  The Bitcoin is now more acutely reflecting the potential for inflation than gold, which achieved an all-time high in early August 2020. The Dec 2024-mean forecast is $1,785/oz. while the more aggressive polynomials are projecting a Dec 2024 value approximating $938-$1,011/oz. You can keep up with an approximation of this on the Indicant Daily Stock Market Report by tracking ETF#11-GLD.

 

Oil regained Red Bull status on weekending Dec 31, 2020, after moving above the domain of the Yellow Bear on weekending Jun 19, 2020. It had been bouncy around $40/bbl for several weeks but became highly bullish since Biden’s so-called election. The Dec 2024-intrinsic and aggressive polynomial forecast remains below zero with the statistical mean forecast of $54/bbl. Saudi Royalty is very pleased with their new low IQ puppets in D.C. Oil is up 126.0% since Biden’s so-called election. It is no longer stabilizing.

 

The CRB Bridge Futures regained Red Bull status on weekending Dec 31, 2020, after abandoning Yellow Bear status on the week of August 3, 2020. It is now aggressively contributing to inflation with it regaining Red Bull status on weekending Feb 26, 2021. It also strengthened during the week of the U.S. election and has continued doing so with no sign of any countermeasures from the source of the inflationary problem; the democratic party, news media, and the lunatic masses in their deep state of tabula rasa. It continues being bullish and thus inflationary.

 

Mortgage rates regained Red Bull status on weekending Mar 12, 2021 after falling into Yellow Bear status on weekending Apr 12, 2019.  They are no longer Yellow Bears and showing some signs of passing a bottom. This remains a great time to finance real estate for those willing to incur debt during uncertainties from the Coronavirus and the more damaging sociopathic politicians.

 

The consumer price index and producer price index are computing without the combined absolute value of threatening interest rates and inflation or deflation of 8%. Considerations of deflationary threats are not out of line, though. Fortunately, there are millions around the world willing to work and be consumptive. With that, the strong may offset the weak. The coronavirus had been disrupting that line of thinking but nearing its disruptive end. A new problem is the political climate, which always has the potential to be massively disruptive to economic conditions. Politicians have a long history of being economically destructive and completely absent of being constructive.

 

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

There were no new bull signals and no new bear signals this week for the major indices along the mid-term cycle.

 

The Mid-term Indicant is signaling bull for all ten major indices. The ten bulls are up by an average of 44.0% since their bull signals an average of 61.5-weeks ago and annualizing at 37.2%. The Mid-term Indicant regained bullish unanimity along the Mid-term Indicant cycle on weekending Oct 9, 2020, and lost it again on weekending Dec 25, 2020, and regained that highly desired configuration on Feb 5, 2021, and then lost it again on weekending Feb 26, 2021. It again configured with bullish unanimity on weekending Mar 26, 2021 and has been holding despite sideways movement by some of the major indices.

 

The Mid-term Indicant Dow Jones Industrial Average performance is at $79.599-million. That beats buy and hold performance of $5.29-million on a $10,000 investment in the Dow stocks in 1900. The MTI S&P500 is at $4.80-million. That beats buy and hold’s $2.63-million on a Jan 6, 1950 $10,000 investment. The MTI-NASDAQ is at $3.66-million. That beats buy and hold’s $1.49-million on a Jan 29, 1971 $10,000 investment.  The MTI-Dow Transports is at $44.98-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 1,504.5%, 182.3%, 245.5%, and 4,135.5%, 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 99.9% 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, and 2017, as the stock market bear remained in hibernation, for the most part, in those three 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. So far, the presidential post-election year of 2021 continues arguing against historical trends of stock market bearishness. Low interest rates continue being credited with this. Rest assured lying politicians take credit.

Remember never to keep more than 20% of your investment resources into a single mutual fund. Sector investing in mutual funds is an extremely good way to mix your investments.

 

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 1,119.3%, annualized at 37.2% since the Long-term Indicant signaled bull 1,563-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

Oct 15, 2021-The stock market is a bit mixed with conflicting bullish and bearish attributes. Large and small caps are with bullish bias. Vector pressures in bearish domains disallowed new bull or buy signals due the seasonal influences. With that, do not be surprised at increased volatility in the next few weeks, but with mild bias favoring the stock market bull.

Indicant Conclusion

Several attributes shifted in support for the stock market bull and thus violating last week’s comment suggesting no bullish enthusiasm. Although attributes shifted in favor of the stock market bull some remain in support of the stock market bear. The majority of Mid-term Indicant force vectors shifting into a bullish direction adds more bullish bias than the residual bearish configurations.

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.
