Currently, the short-term trend for the SPX is NEUTRAL. The intermediate and long term trends are still very BULLISH! There is No trend, in the market, at this time. It is neither overbought or oversold.
The SPX is in a ‘Non-Trending’ market. I expect this next retracement will be completed by the end of April 2017. I plan on taking advantage of this summer’s rally.
I am anxiously watching the 50-day moving average, for the next direction, as to whether they are about to roll over. This moving average is one of the most-watched technical indicators for institutional firms and helps shift market psychology. I am still looking for much higher highs in the stock market throughout 2017.
As I have mentioned, in my previous reports, I am expecting a pullback/consolidation in the equity markets.
I am expecting gold to cross $1300.00/oz. and silver to cross $19.00/oz. by the end of April.
In addition, I am expecting a “buy-in-May” event in 2017. This could begin our rally with the SPX reaching into the 2500 area during the summer.
This market is Not bearish, so I would suggest that you not trade against this very strong BULLISH UPTREND.
The Importance of Sentiment!
The markets direction is driven by “market sentiment” or “social mood.” Forget about “logic” when it comes to the markets. This is the reason why so many were looking the wrong way when Trump won the election.
“Market sentiment” in equities clearly suggested that we were heading higher in early November of 2016, regardless of who won the election.
Social experiments which were conducted, over the last 30 years, have proven this to be real, despite the general public’s belief to the contrary.
Market bottoms and tops typically occur when sentiment reaches an extreme. For instance, when Wall Street is “euphoric”, after a sustained rally, it suggests buying power is exhausted. When there is an exceptionally high number of bears, after a sustained downturn, a bottom will be close at hand.
The Consumer Confidence Index reached its’ highest level since December 2000, helped by American’s perceptions about business conditions and the job market. Business sentiment is also high. The National Federation of Independent Business, which represents small businesses, says optimism is at one of its’ highest levels in more than four decades, based, in part, on expectations of forthcoming positive developments in Washington, D.C. The National Association of Home Builders says builder sentiment rose in March to its’ highest level since June 2005.
Presently, there is fear in the marketplace.
If you do not have a set of rules for trading, then this will definitely help you TIME your trades.
Patience Pays Off Using MRM – Momentum Reversal Method !
One of the key tenants of my Momentum Reversal trading is “waiting for the right trigger/event and getting in early”. I find this is one of the most difficult aspects for most traders to understand and to master.
