The Long Waited Two-Year Cycle

Since the beginning of the four-year cycle low in February 2016, the first four weekly cycles were very visible and tradable.  The fifth cycle finished in one short week to conclude 2017.  The seasonal tendencies have been disappeared completely from the market in 2017.  It was an odd year with historic low volatility.  The year of 2018 started with a furious rally and also encountered an equally furious selloff quickly.  Because of the intensity of the selloff and the pending 2-year cycle low we were anticipating in Q1 2018, we are now treating this selloff as a correction of the entire rally from the February 2016 low to January 2018 high.

The S&P 500 cash index 23.6% retracement from February 2016 low to January 2018 is 2620, a 10% correction off the January high is 2584.  We believe this selloff will have strong support at 2600 level.  Our model indicates the selloff will most likely end in mid March to declare a seasonal low.

The March seasonal low will be a great buying opportunity as we believe we are in a very unique bull market that’s far from over.  On one hand, we are in a very late expansion stage ( the longest bull market in history so far) and a tightening monetary cycle (rising rates & inflation outlook), on the other hand, we have a very stimulative fiscal policy (tax reform & overseas cash coming home).  The conundrum will gripe the market for the time being and produce a correction until the market figures itself out.

Technically, we believe this is about time.  People will assign a variety of fundamentals because they have to try to explain something that was caused by simply running out of time. The trend changes based on time. Fashions change also based on time. We reach a magical point and grow tired of the present situation and just want change for the sake of change. Welcome to humanity. The crack of the market was based on time regardless of the news.

Trade Alert 01282018

The biotech sector is positioned in a breakout position in a vertical bull market! IBB and XBI are the two major biotech ETFs.  IBB is weighted more towards mega cap biotechs, XBI is weighted more towards smaller biotechs that are the candidates having the potential to be acquired by the big ones. Both IBB and XBI have gone thru significant correction since the summer 2015 peak.  XBI just broke out the 2015 peak and IBB has a little ways to take out the 2015 top.

Shutdown Blip

pricentime

The US government was shutdown over the weekend.  It is a big deal as it affects many people’s lives and the economy.  But in this vertical market, this shutdown will be just a blip that the impact to the market is almost negligible.   The bull market will brushoff the event like it has been doing since 2017.

It was the 13th day in the first daily cycle and the 3rd week in the current weekly cycle on Friday, January 19, 2018 before the shutdown.
