Racing for the October 2018 High

The relentless market has surprised a lot of people on the upside.  The December selloff was painful, the rise out of the low has been equally painful.  It has caught a lot of professional speculators such as the hedge funds unprepared.  Normally the market bases for a period of time around the low, seldom it pivots so quickly that produces a V-shaped bottom.

Indeed we have a V-shaped low and it is racing to take out the October 2018 high.  The October 2018 high is a 4-year cycle high, once this high is taken out, the previous 4-year cycle low is confirmed and the new 4-year cycle low to high rising phase will last at least until November 2020.  As we blogged before, we are currently in the middle of a 17-year cycle that is similar to the period of 1982-2000.  This December 2018 low is a 4-year cycle (February 2016-December 2018)  low and a half cycle low of the 17-year cycle (2009-2026).  We have steadfastly maintained a long term bullish outlook.  We have been looking very hard for entry points to deploy fresh capital for investment opportunities.  The indices continue to blow out resistance levels and now are marching for the old high.

It is 14 weeks into the current weekly cycle and it is very close to the old October 2018 high.  We still maintain the stance that the market is not going to breakout from here and enter a point of no return zone.  It will encounter resistance at the old high and enter a correction to reach below for the 200-day moving average. Back in October 1998, it made a 22.45% correction in 11 weeks to produce a 4-year cycle low, then it only took 7 weeks to take out the old July 1998 high, which was  a 4-year cycle high then.  The October 1998 4-year cycle low was confirmed in 7 weeks.  It then entered a point of no return zone to create the dotcom bubble.  This time it has spent 14 weeks already and it still hasn’t taken out the October 2018 high yet, and we are not foreseeing a dotcom bubble in the next two years, therefore this December 2018 low is very similar to the March 2009 and February 2016 lows.  It will experience a correction to provide entry points.

We have identified a few growth oriented investing ideas that are still in the early investing cycle.  We have conviction in these three companies that will be disruptive forces in the coming 4-year cycle.

It’s Locked in a Holding Pattern

We blogged that the Fed top is here in our last post.  However, the selling pressure was abated last week.  The sellers were nowhere to be found.  The indices closed positive last week to finish a great first quarter.  With the muted price action from last week, is the market set up to launch to new heights or something else?

It’s All About The Central Bank

When the Fed pivoted its easy money policy on January 4th earlier this year, the extremely oversold market responded with vengeance! The market participants have since pushed the market over the limit by triggering the fear of mission out motions.  The selloff occurred during the first week of March was promptly

S&P 500 Cycle Location 09072018

The first week of September proves once again that September is not a good month for the stock market.  The market had a mild selloff that was led by the small caps and NASDAQ.  As soon as the S&P 500 broke out the old January 2018 high, it fell right back down below the old high.
