Minor Cycle (Short-term trend lasting days to a few weeks) Neutral

Intermediate Cycle (Medium trend lasting weeks to several months) Neutral

Major Cycle (Long-term trend lasting several months to years) Positive

Market Overview – What We Know:

  • Major indexes posted modest strength Tuesday, but in trading Tuesday evening a portion of those gains was given back.
  • Trading volume on NYSE relative to Monday’s activity rose 12%. Average Price per Share gained $1.93 to $64.41.
  • Minor Cycle remains negative until S&P rises above upper edge of 10-Day Price Channel (1429.67 through Wednesday).
  • While S&P was unable to decisively break below 10-Week Price Channel (1413.38 through November 2) to suggest reversal to Intermediate Cycle negative, fact Dow 30, NASDAQ, and Value Line index did is reason to suggest Intermediate Cycle has taken on more negative outlook. As a consequence, S&P must now rise above upper edge of 10-Week Price Channel (1451.21) to create new intermediate uptrend.
  • Major resistance and point to overcome to re-assert long-term uptrend in S&P 500 remains at 1474.51 created on September 14.
  • Daily MAAD was positive Tuesday with 12 issues higher, 7 lower, and one unchanged. Daily MAAD Ratio was last heading toward “Neutral” (.98).
  • Daily CPFL was positive Tuesday by 2.94 to 1 with Daily CPFL Ratio moving upward toward “Neutral” (.85).

Market Overview – What We Think:

  • Short-term hesitation, at least, continues in major indexes as Minor Cycle “Oversold” conditions give way to “Neutral.”
  • History suggests that in Intermediate Cycle negative, “Neutral” can equate to “Overbought” in positive intermediate trend.
  • While we could see some further positive rebounding, we continue to believe Intermediate Cycle uptrend begun in early June is over and September 14 intraday highs (1454.71—S&P 500) will not be seriously challenged for foreseeable future.
  • How new intermediate-term negative plays out could determine staying power of Major Cycle trend which is challenged in terms of “Overbought” conditions and lack of solid indicator underpinnings.

Note: Stop levels, a function of the extant trend, are based on the trailing moving average price channels for the Highs or the Lows of an index. Whether or not a specific index is suggesting a “Buy” or Sell” is determined by whether or not index prices are above or below the current channel Stop levels. Stop levels should only be used as an entry or exit guide and in conjunction with other market entry and exit strategies.
