World Money Show

10/19/2011 7:53:37 AM

Hope to see you in Chicago...

It's been a fun ride since our 10/3 call to buy the lows. Any position you took should be doing well. Our options positions are up well over 100%. Not bad for a couple weeks work.

If you're in the Chicago area next Thursday through Saturday, let me know and we can meet to discuss the markets. In my presentation, I'll walk through the process of how I make calls on the market.

As for the markets, we're seeing volatility at highs. This can be indicative of a turn. So I am getting a little more cautious, but I still expect a consolidation/pull back into our plethora of key reversal dates that come in over the next week or so. The depth of this pull back will give us an indication of future price action.

I still expect the markets to resolve to the upside following this action.

Here's a look at the global markets:

World Markets

On the economic front, here is the schedule for this week. Pay close attention to the timing of the report and the potential for the markets to make short term reversals at those points.

Economic Calendar

On to the charts:

Daily Stock Barometer


Stock Barometer Analysis

The barometer is in Buy Mode and we expect higher prices into the middle of this month (around the next options expiration this Friday).

Monday's sell off suggests we could see a consolidating move lower into expiration to around the 25th. This would set up the next leg higher into Thanksgiving in traditional seasonal action.

The Stock Barometer is my proprietary market timing system. The direction, slope and level of the Stock Barometer determine our outlook. For example, if the barometer line is moving down, we are in Sell Mode. A Buy or Sell Signal is triggered when the indicator clearly changes direction. Trend and support can override the barometer signals.


Money Management & Stops

To trade this system, there are a few things you need to know and address to control your risk:

  • This system targets intermediate term moves, of which even in the best years, there are usually only up to 7 profitable intermediate term moves. The rest of the year will be consolidating moves where this system will experience small losses and gains that offset each other.
  • This system will usually result in losing trades more than 50% of the time, even in our best years. The key is being positioned properly for longer term moves when they come.
  • Therefore it is vitally important that you apply some form of money management to protect your capital.
  • Trading a leveraged index fund will result in more risk, since you cannot set stops and you cannot get out intraday.

Accordingly;

  • Make sure you set your stops so that you can lose no more than 2% per trade (based on the QQQQ if you're trading leveraged funds and options with our trading service).


Potential Cycle Reversal Dates

2011 Potential Reversal Dates: 1/15, 1/29, 2/16, 3/10, 3/18, 4/6, 5/21, 5/31, 6/13, 6/24, 7/16, 8/1, 8/19, 9/4, 9/25, 10/21, 10/25, 11/25, 12/26. We publish dates up to 2 months in advance.

I've added the rest of the dates for 2011.

Seasonality and cycles are bullish into year end. If we get a consolidation into our next key reversal date, I would get more bullish.

Starting to look at 2012 - and seeing two large moves in the market. As I dig in, I'll share some of my findings. Annual subscribers will see my charts in process for my 2012 view...

My Additional timing work is based on numerous cycles and has resulted in the above potential reversal dates. These are not to be confused with the barometer signals or cycle times. However, due to their past accuracy I post the dates here.

Timing Indicators

Use the following Timing/momentum indicators to assist in your trading of the QQQQ, GLD, USD, USO and TLT. They are tuned to deliver signals in line with the Stock Barometer and we use them only in determining our overall outlook for the market and for pinpointing market reversals. The level, direction, and position to the zero line are keys in these indicators. For example, direction determines mode and a buy signal 'above zero' is more bullish than a buy signal 'below zero'.

Daily Stock Market Outlook

We remain in Buy Mode here, expecting a bounce into mid October. Now that we're seeing the bounce play out, we're looking for the markets to consolidate or correct into 10/21 to 10/25.

This should set up another upside move into November.

Above is the Investor's Intelligence's bulls minus bears. I know I showed it yesterday, but this morning we got an update that turned the indicator higher. There's an efficiency component of these indicators, the move may be a little inefficient. But still, this energy is starting to release to the upside, finally.

I'll be moderating a panel of Natural Resource company execs in Chicago on Thursday. So if you have any questions you would like me to ask the following companies, feel free to let me know:
