Using weekly statistics, after it peaked the week ending April 29, 2011, Weekly MAAD has yet to revisit that key resistance level even though the S&P 500 rallied another 7.5% into the September 2012 highs. Weekly MAAD failed to better its 2011 highs in March 2012 and again in September a month ago. That movement is a longer-term suggestion Smart Money, while half-heartedly participating in this market during rallies, has done so with increasing reluctance. And history suggests such hesitancy does not bode well for the bullish cause on the longer-term cycles. For those inclined to point out to us that the Weekly MAAD Ratio is currently near “Neutral,” we must suggest in return that just prior to the last big decline in the 2007-2009 bear market in September 2008, the MAAD Weekly Ratio was plotted at .90 and merely eroded down to .54 as the S&P 500 lost nearly 50% of its value by March 2009.
