The Markets Read it Wrong!

The European markets, the British pound, and Euro had rallied for six days prior to its' meeting based on political polls. These polls were showing that the vote was too close to call. The market incorrectly interpreted this as meaning that the "Remain" side would prevail. The British pound hit a new a year-to-date high last Thursday, June 23rd, 2016, the day of the election. Banks had done especially well in the rally, some being up by almost double digits during their best days. After the Brexit vote, they experienced a massive 'selloff'.


I prepared my readers in advance of "BREXIT"

Right now, everything is still rebalancing from the "Brexit" vote. The "mass media" will talk about how it will affect the Eurozone and its' impact on the world for the remainder of this week. The experts will blame "BREXIT" for this decline, but that is only 'the symptom'.

I sent a 'trade alert' to my subscribers on June 8th, 2016 to enter the long position of gold, using the most liquid and most traded ETF, "GLD", and on "Black Friday" our position was up 5%. Another 'flash alert' was sent out on June 9th, 2016 to enter the long position of U.S. twenty year bonds, using the most liquid and most traded ETF for U.S. Bonds, "TLT", and our position is deep in profits also.

Most hedge funds and money managers experienced heavy losses because they tend to be much more heavily weighted in equities.

As small traders and investors we can be much nimbler and are not forced to hold various positions in equities like most funds. Knowing that we have an added 'edge' and if you follow my lead ETF alerts my strategies can help keep you on the right side of all the markets.

Over the next 3 to 5 years, I will present very 'unique' opportunities to not only protect your wealth, but to grow your trading account handsomely using my "Cycle Analysis" and my "Predictive Analytics Models"

The SPX could not break out of its' resistance 'zone'. It has not been able to get through for over a year and a half and this is typical of a 'long-term topping pattern'.

SPX Daily Chart

This week stocks have rallied huge. Why? It could be for many reasons like: end of month window dressing by the institutions, pre-holiday rally, the market was oversold earlier in the week so a bounce should be expected.

A new Sell Signal is on the rise for stocks. If this is the outcome, then it should continue to sell off down to 1830 level over the next 30 days.

SPX Daily Chart 2

This should look very similar to the 'sell off' that occurred back in August 2015. The selling pressure drove the SPX to previous support. In this area, it is a reasonable location for support to now show up. The SPX has not broken out of the established channel over the last few months. On the weekly chart of the SPX there is also channel starting at 2000 up to 2100. Momentum oscillators on the weekly chart suggest the beginning of the channel rollover.

The Only Chart You Needed to See:

The Bullish Percent Index (BPI) is a breadth indicator based on the number of stocks on Point & Figure buy/sell signals within an index. The index is either on a P&F buy or sell signal, there is no ambiguity when it comes to this chart reading. This makes The Bullish Percent Index (BPI) fluctuates between 0% and 100%.

Bear Alert: BPI is above 70% and then declines below 70%.

Concluding Thoughts:

Expect greater volatility because of uncertainty regarding the "bearish sentiment" along with lower prices starting early next week.
