When Divorce Happens: The NASDAQ & Transportation Index Diverge In Big Way Which Can Signal A Weakening Economy

On Friday, June 4, 2021, a very interesting divergence between the NASDAQ and the Transportation Index setup which highlights the uncertainty related to the continued global market recovery trade.  With the NASDAQ rallying over 200 points and reaching levels near critical resistance, near $13,775, the Transportation Index collapsed over -150 points and briefly tested critical support near $15,350.  What would prompt this type of movement in these indexes? I believe the recovery/reflation trade has already run it’s course and we are starting to move into a complacency phase with regards to future economic activity and output.  Consumers are already fairly

After Reaching A Trend Channel High, The Russell 2000 (IWM) Flags Out

The Russell 2000, which had experienced an incredible 48% upside price rally after the November 2020 US elections, has recently peaked near an upward sloping price channel that originated shortly after the 2010 Housing Crisis bottom.  The incredible aspect is that the post-COVID price rally accelerated at such an extreme rate that the current peak level (highlighted by the MAGENTA circle on the chart below) represents an extreme rally phase in price.  Unquestionably, at this point, the markets are searching for a new trend and the IWM has consolidated into a sideways Flagging price formation. I believe global traders are

US Major Indexes Consolidate Into Sideways/Flagging Pattern – Watch For Aggressive Trending Soon

Over the past few weeks, the US major indexes have consolidated into a sideways price channel.  This is most obvious on the NASDAQ and SPY charts as we’ve seen moderately deep pullbacks through the months of April/May 2021.  My research suggests this sideways price Flagging might be concerning for active traders/investors.  When the market flags into a sideways price pattern and near an Apex level, price tends to act in a very aggressive manner while attempting to establish a new trend. The longer price continues to trade within that sideways/flagging price range, the more aggressive and violent the new trend

Stock Market Cycles Tipping The Balance From Euphoria To Complacency – Is Gold Setting Up For A Rally Above $2000 Again?

Gold has set up a very strong confluence pattern across multiple foreign currencies recently.  This upside confluence pattern suggests that Gold has now moved into a much stronger bullish price phase compared to various currency pairs.  This upside move in precious metals aligns very well with my broad market cycle phase research. I urge traders/investors to start paying attention as we transition into this new longer-term cycle phase. “Chris and his team are providing investors with a great road map for the direction of the markets, which is why I am also a paid subscriber to TheTechnicalTraders services and encourage

Everything Is On Fire

May 19, 2021 By Egon von Greyerz “Everything is on fire” – Heraclitus (535-475 BC) What Heraclitus meant was that the world is in a constant state of flux. But the big problem in the next few years is that the world will experience a fire of a magnitude never seen before in history. I have in many articles and interviews pointed out how predictable events are (and people). This is particularly true in the world economy. Empires come and go, economies boom and bust and new currencies come and without fail always go. All this happens with regularity. A GLOBAL

Bloomberg News | May 23, 2021 (Image courtesy of Maaden, Facebook). Saudi Arabia’s state miner will use a windfall from the recent boom in commodity prices to pay off debt, as it seeks to strengthen its balance sheet before embarking on international acquisitions. The new chief executive officer of Saudi Arabia Mining Co., known as Maaden, said he plans to halve the ratio of debt to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization over the next five years.
