Shattered XLE Collapses Into Seasonal Low

Posted by Chartworks - Institutional Advisors

on Friday, 16 February 2018 06:59

The smashed Stock Market, an $8 drop in Oil combined with a seasonality situation has created an exceptional opportunity. One look at the chart of the XLE Energy Select Sector Fund and you can see you'll be buying low! Whether its a new bull market or not, Institutional Advisors sees an 8 week rally from a severly oversold situation. Take a look - Robert Zurrer for Money Talks:

We reported on the upside Exhaustion Alert in the big cap oils (XLE) on January 11th, anticipating a pullback into the normal seasonal low in February with the possibility of two legs to the downside. Prices continued higher for another ten days, but with bearish divergences in the money flow oscillators. Needless to say, the break has been more than normal. Downside Capitulation Alerts have been generated as of Friday. These follow a daily Sequential 9 Buy Setup. A 40% to 50% retracement of the decline, back to the 50-day moving averages within three to six weeks would be the normal action. 


Seasonally, the XLE tends to bottom around the 20th of February and rally for eight weeks (profitable 14 of the 18 years). The most reliable moves have been when the price has been oversold in the preceding weeks. This year clearly offers that set of circumstances.

Why Canada Sells Our Oil at a Discount

Posted by Michael Campbell

on Thursday, 15 February 2018 08:58


While the east coast of Canada imports 700,000 Barrels a day of World Prices, the rest of Canada sells 2/3 of its production of oil at prices that are $25 to $30 a barrel less than world prices. Natural gas sells at 60% of the World Price. Reasons why...

Peter Grandich: Blip or Warning Shot

Posted by Peter Grandich & Company

on Thursday, 15 February 2018 06:54

best-stocks-to-buy-now-1-300x214Must read: A report from someone who shorted this market and covered it right on the bottom February 9th. That is one hell of a trade.

Not only that but Peter Grandich has been correct being short the bonds and recently stated that he is as bullish as he has been in 34 years on Gold - Robert Zurrer

A Brief Look At The Markets by Peter Grandich

 Stock Market – I had noted in my February 10th observation, that I had covered my short position on the morning of the 9th. I stated,  “A significant reason for taking profits in my short positions was the personal technical work that I do, suggested the short-term selling was exhausted. Sure enough, the DJIA rallied 700 points from when I covered. I believe we can see the market rally back hard next week, as the first sell-offs in Parabolic Arc formations are almost always assumed to be buying opportunities.”
As I make this blog post, morning stock index futures indicate another 300 point rise to the already-huge rally since covering my shorts. I believe this qualifies as “rallying back hard”. The question is, was the previous sell-off just a blip or a true warning shot? If a picture is worth a thousand words, this photo should explain my answer:

  •  Bonds – While the stock market thinks it was just a momentary blip, the bond market has clearly viewed a major sea change and is acting accordingly. The POTUS has “joined the swamp” in insanely out-of-control spending and debt crisis, that just may make the can unable to be kicked down the road anymore. The warning shot will become this, if the 10-year T-Bond gets above (and stays) 3%
