Now Is a Great Time to Buy the Dip

During the recent wild volatility this analyst has used a method to stay out of trouble & keep on the right side of the huge swings. This tool now foresees a great opportunity as he explains below - R. Zurrer for Money Talks

On March 9, I cautioned you that we were about to enter a period of prolonged volatility

And that’s exactly what we saw.

The S&P 500 Index has plunged as much as 8% since that day, and the volatility in the market is nerve-racking.

A 1% move in the broad market now takes just hours, compared to what would have taken days to amass during all of last year.

But just as my chart of moving averages showed this was coming, it is also showing that the end of this slump in the market is near, and now is a great time to jump in.

Take a look:


In the chart, the red line is a simple 200-day moving average, an average almost all traders follow.

The green line is the 50-day moving average, and the yellow line is the 50-day moving average offset by 25 days.

The blue line is my forward indicator for the yellow line, because the data continues to change until it is 25 days old. At that point, it is our 50-day moving average offset by 25 days (the yellow line).

This yellow line is the key one, but the blue line is our indicator for where it is headed.

And just as it showed it was about to cross below the green line a month ago (which was bearish), it now shows that it is set to climb back above the green line — a bullish move.

This is why jumping in now is a great time to buy the dip.

I know, it may seem nerve-racking to enter with such volatility, but start small.

Buy some stocks to benefit from the quick rally, but keep some cash on the side due to the volatility that you can put to work once the market has turned the corner and is officially out of the stock market correction.

Stocks Enter Period of Seasonal Strength This Week

Timing is everything, and seasonality is a great tool to use to help get your timing right. A strong seasonal period began with Stocks in General on April 11th, and is currently powering the Energy Sector higher. This report covers the Markets, individual stocks and Energy. - R. Zurrer for Money Talks



Seasonal Chart Analysis

Analysis of the S&P Global Inc. (NYSE:SPGI) seasonal charts above shows that a Buy Date of October 5 and a Sell Date of December 29 has resulted in a geometric average return of 2.39% above the benchmark rate of the S&P 500 Total Return Index over the past 20 years. This seasonal timeframe has shown positive results compared to the benchmark in 17 of those periods. This is a very good rate of success, but the return underperforms the relative buy-and-hold performance of the stock over the past 20 years by an average of 3.5% per year.

The seasonal timeframe is Inline with the period of seasonal strength for the Financial sector, which runs from November 22 to April 13. The seasonal chart for the broad sector is available via the following link: Financial Sector Seasonal Chart.

The Markets

Stocks jumped on Tuesday as investors reacted to a speech from Chinese President Xi Jinping, who discussed plans to to open up the country’s economy.  The S&P 500 Index surged by 1.67%, testing, once again, the declining 20-day moving average.  The benchmark has been gyrating between resistance at this short-term moving average and support at the 200-day moving average for the past three weeks, charting large intraday swings as investors attempt to find a level of comfort amongst equity prices.  The more formidable level of resistance to watch is the gap around 2700, which is now intersecting with the declining 50-day moving average.  Significant negative reaction to this hurdle would increase the likelihood of a break of horizontal support below around 2575.  A bullish MACD crossover was triggered during Tuesday’s session, presenting some hope that the next move on the benchmark is higher, barring some catalyst that destabilizes markets, yet again.


Topping the leaderboard on Tuesday was the energy sector as commodity prices moved higher following the Chinese President’s remarks.  The S&P 500 Energy Sector index broke out from its intermediate consolidation range, as well as advanced beyond significant moving averages in the process.  The energy benchmark has significantly outperformed the market for the past three weeks, benefitting from the strength in the price of oil, which remains around multi-year highs.  Strong demand for product commodities and a return to normal levels for stockpiles of the raw input have been a significant influence.  Seasonally, the price of oil and the stocks of the companies that produce it tend to gain through the start of May.  We’ll obtain further insight as to the state of the oil market when the EIA releases their official tally on Wednesday.

Strap In, Get Ready For a Big Bounce

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Posted by NFTRH & BiiWii

on Tuesday, 10 April 2018 07:15

There are several "Trade War" gaps down located quite a bit higher than where we are trading presently in the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100. As a rule trade gaps ususally get filled before returnng to the trend in force.  Especially likely in this anxious environment this analyst proposes. In short, should we fill those gaps as you can see on the charts below a very large rally will have to occur. R. Zurrer for Money Talks


Well, they got reversed in-day but I am still leaning toward a short-term scenario where the market at least tries to fill a Trade War hype gap or two. It may not be the ‘M’ top scenario but I feel like the last couple of weeks gave a would-be bounce some fuel with all the anxiety that got stirred up. But you’re right, the market does not give a shit what I feel like.

SPX has tested its daily SMA 200 and is still in a potential (60 min.) bounce pattern. A drop below 2590 puts that in peril.


NDX is still in its monthly, weekly and daily up trends and the 60 minute also has a pattern. Both of them are looking to fill their opening gaps. Still leaning toward a bounce to at least one of the upside gaps. I just don’t feel like I buy the bear at this moment. But my positioning is very balanced with longs, shorts, precious metals and a crap load of relatively* good yielding cash.


* Relative to that blight known as ZIRP that Bernanke put upon savers.

Short Sale of the Century

on Monday, 09 April 2018 08:00

production“Tesla, without any doubt, is on the verge of bankruptcy.”

Simon Black compares Tesla and Ford Motor Company which I think argues strongly for buying one and selling short the other. Ford built 6 million cars at a 7.6 billion profit, and has a $12 billion "a rainy day" fund. Tesla on the other hand built 100,000 cars at a $2 billion loss. Amazingly Tesla is worth twice as much as Ford !!!!! The quotation in the title comes from someone who thinks they will run out of money in 3 months and declare bankruptcy - R Zurrer for Money Talks

Bangkok, Thailand

Just a few days ago, shareholders of Tesla approved an almost comical pay package for their [cult leader] CEO Elon Musk that could potentially put $50 BILLION in his pocket over the next decade.

Let’s put this figure in perspective: at $5 billion per year, Musk would make more than every single CEO in the S&P 500. COMBINED.

In other words, if you add up the salaries of all the CEOs of the 500 largest companies in America, it would still be less than the $5 billion per year that Mr. Musk stands to earn.

That’s pretty astounding given that Tesla’s own 2017 4th quarter financial report (page 24) states that Elon “does not devote his full time and attention to Tesla”.

Or more importantly, that under Musk’s leadership, Tesla’s chronic financial incontinence has racked up more than $4.97 billion in operating losses for its shareholders.
