The 3/24/17 Weekend Report Preview

The Dollar
$$$

The dollar formed a swing low on Friday.

The dollar printed it lowest point on Wednesday following the day 19 peak. That was day 33, placing the dollar deep in its timing band for a daily cycle low. The daily swing low that formed on Friday has good odds of marking the DCL. A close above the 10 day MA would signal a new daily cycle. It would also mean that the dollar did not break below the previous low of 99.19 to form a failed daily cycle. If day 33 is the DCL then the dollar would have formed a right translated daily cycle. A right translated daily cycle formation would indicate that the February DCL did host the intermediate cycle low. However, a break below the previous DCL of 99.19 will negate the right translated cycle formation. It will also signal a continuation of the intermediate cycle decline.

Stocks
stocks

Stocks printed a lower low on Friday.

At day 57, that places stocks deep in in their timing band to print a daily cycle low. A swing low would signal a new daily cycle. I still would like to see a clear and convincing break of the (black) daily cycle trend line before being satisfied that the daily cycle low is in. However if stocks go on to rally from here and break above the declining (blue) trend line then that would signal that Friday hosted the daily cycle low. Stocks are in a daily uptrend. They will remain in their daily uptrend unless they close below the lower daily cycle band.

Daily Equity Cycle Update

0

Stocks broke convincingly below the 10 day MA on Tuesday which signaled that stocks were extending their daily cycle decline.

The reasons we discussed on Tuesday that stocks ere extending their daily cycle decline included:
1) The peak on day 40 locks in a right translated cycle.
2) No trend line break.
3) No real panic (until Tuesday)

spx

Stocks printed a lower low on Wednesday and has formed a daily swing low on Thursday. While stocks are getting late in their timing band for a daily cycle low, I am not convinced that the swing low that formed on Thursday completes the daily cycle decline. I still would like to see a clear and convincing break of the (black) daily cycle trend line before being satisfied that the daily cycle low is in. However if stocks go on to rally from here and break above the declining (blue dashed) trend line then that would signal that Wednesday hosted the daily cycle low.

3 Reasons Why …

0

I have received some (many) emails asking me if today’s action in stocks signals a failed daily cycle. Here are the 3 reasons why I think that Stocks are now heading into their final daily cycle decline.

spx

1) The peak on day 40 locks in a right translated cycle.
2) No trend line break.
3) No real panic (until Tuesday)

The peak on day 40 locked in a right translated daily cycle formation. Right translated daily cycles generally go on to print a higher high, even if the following cycle turns out to be a failed daily cycle. Since stocks did not break out to a new high that is the first signal that stocks are still declining into their daily cycle low.

One of the tools that we use to help confirm the cycle decline is a trend line break. While stocks broke below the accelerated (red-dashed) trend line to signal the start of the daily cycle decline they did not break below the (black) daily cycle trend line. Now that that stocks are making their final decline into their daily cycle low they will likely break below the (black) trend line before completing their daily cycle decline.

As stocks move into a cycle low there is usually some panic selling as the cycle low approaches. In retrospect it does not seem that day 46 achieved any panic selling as opposed to the selling on Tuesday.

So for those reasons I think that Tuesday was day 54 for the daily equity cycle. Which places stocks late in their timing band to print a daily cycle low. I think that once the (black) tend line is breached, a swing low should mark the daily cycle low. Then a break above the declining (dashed) trend line will confirm the new daily cycle.

Natural Gas Low

0

NATGAS confirmed a new daily cycle on Monday.

natgas

The NATGAS daily cycle peaked just below the 50 day MA last Monday, which was day 13. A swing high then formed sending NATGAS into its daily cycle decline. NATGAS printed its lowest point on Friday. At 17days that places NATGAS in its timing band to print a daily cycle low. NATGAS formed a swing low on Monday that closed above the 50 day MA. NATGAS also closed above the upper daily cycle band which signals that the February low hosted the intermediate cycle low and that Monday was day 1 for the 2nd daily cycle.

I routinely cover both the daily and intermediate cycles for Natural Gas in the Mid-Week Update and in the Weekend Update.

The Dollar
$$$

The dollar is getting late in its timing band to form a daily cycle low.

The dollar printed its lowest point on Friday, following the day 19 peak. The dollar’s daily cycle has averaged 31 days since printing its yearly cycle low in May. Friday was day 30, placing the dollar in its timing band to a daily cycle low. A swing low and a break above 100.28 will form a daily swing low. Then a close above the declining trend line will confirm the new daily cycle. Since the declining trend line is over 1.6% away we will use a close above the declining 50 day MA as confirmation of a new daily cycle.

1 $$$ d aily 00

The peak on day 19 indicates a right translated daily cycle formation and the the February DCL also hosted an intermediate cycle low. But by closing below the lower daily cycle band, that ends the daily uptrend and is a signal that the next daily cycle may form as a left translated cycle.

Stocks
stocks

The daily equity cycle peaked on day 40, formed a swing high then broke below the (red-dashed) accelerated trend line to signal the daily cycle decline.

Stocks printed their lowest point on day 46. That was not enough to break below the (black) daily cycle trend line. But 46 days places stocks in the later stage of its timing band for a daily cycle low. There were other indicators that day 46 hosted the DCL including the TSI bearish zero line crossover prior to day 46 and the bullish TSI zero line crossover following day 46. Stocks also closed convincingly above the 10 day MA on Wednesday providing more confirmation that Day 46 hosted the DCL.

Stocks are in a daily uptrend and will continue in its uptrend until it closes below the lower daily cycle band.

Gold Confirms New Daily Cycle

0

Gold printed its lowest point last Friday, day 29, following the day 20 peak. While gold formed a swing low on Monday, it did not confirm a new daily cycle until Thursday.

gld

Gold did break higher on Wednesday, gaining over 2% and breaching the declining trend line. Gold delivered bullish follow through on Thursday by breaking higher to close above both the declining trend line and the 50 day MA to confirm the new daily cycle.

Gold began to close below the lower daily cycle band as it was seeking out its daily cycle low. That ended the daily uptrend and began a daily downtrend. Thursday’s rally fell short of breaking above the upper daily cycle band. If gold is turned lower here and closes back below the lower daily cycle band then gold will have established a daily downtrend. But a close above the upper daily cycle band would end the daily downtrend and signal that gold is re-establishing its daily uptrend.

Miner Conundrum

screenshot_1394

The Miners printed their lowest point on Thursday after peaking back in February. While the daily cycle count for Miners has become obscured, either count places Thursday in the timing band or very late in the timing band for a daily cycle low.

gdx

The Miners did form a swing low on Friday. Our preferred tool for confirming a new daily cycle is a trend line break. But with the declining trend line over 14% above price we then look for a close above the 10 day MA, which marginally occurred on Monday. Had the rally out of Thursday’s low been more robust then I would be inclined to label it as a DCL. I suspect that the Miners will print one more lower low in order to form its impending daily cycle low.

And we have the dollar rallying out of a low to thank for this Miner conundrum.

$$$

The dollar’s daily cycle peaked on day 19 and then began its daily cycle decline. The dollar found support at the 50 day MA and printed a swing low on Tuesday. Monday was day 26, placing the dollar in its timing band for a daily cycle low. A close above the declining trend line will confirm Monday as the DCL.

Gold Facing Strong Headwinds

0

The dollar printed a bullish reversal off of the support of the 50 day MA on Monday.

$$$ daily

Monday was day 26 for the dollar’s daily cycle. That places the dollar in its timing band for a daily cycle low. Monday’s bullish reversal eases the parameters for forming a daily swing low. A break above 101.25 will form a swing low. Then a break above the declining trend line will confirm the new daily cycle.

The dollar has established a daily uptrend. If a swing low forms then the dollar would have managed to avoid closing below the lower daily cycle band during its daily cycle decline. Which means that the dollar would remain in a daily uptrend.

Despite the dollar’s bullish reversal, gold formed a swing low on Monday.

gold

Gold printed its lowest point on Friday, day 29. That placed gold with in its timing band for its daily cycle low. It is a bullish sign that gold managed to form a swing low as the dollar printed its bullish reversal.

However, gold faces some strong head winds now that a swing low has formed. Gold will need to break above the 50 day MA just to get started. Then break above the declining trend line, which is aligned with the declining 10 day MA, in order to confirm the new daily cycle.

Something that we need to watch is that gold had closed below the lower daily cycle band as it declined into its daily cycle low. That ended gold’s daily uptrend. If gold rallies here and it does not manage to close above the upper daily cycle band before rolling over, then it will establish a daily downtrend.

The Dollar
$$$

Friday’s break below the daily cycle trend line confirms that the dollar is in a daily cycle decline.

The dollar peaked on day 19, which assures us of a right translated daily cycle formation. The dollar also managed to close above the upper daily cycle band during this daily cycle. That ended the daily downtrend and indicated that February hosted an intermediate cycle low. Friday was day 25 for the dollar’s daily cycle. That places the dollar in its timing band for a daily cycle low. A swing low will signal a new daily cycle. The dollar is in a daily uptrend and will continue in its uptrend until it closes below the lower daily cycle band

Stocks
stocks

The daily cycle peaked on day 40, locking in a right translated daily cycle formation.

Stocks printed their lowest point on Thursday, following the day 40 peak. The swing low on Friday indicates a new daily cycle. A close above the 10 day MA will signal a new daily cycle. Stocks continue to close above the upper daily cycle band, indicating a daily uptrend. Stocks will remain in its daily uptrend until it closes below the lower daily cycle band.

Normally we would like to see break below the daily cycle trend line before looking for a daily cycle low. But this daily cycle is extremely right translated and it did not happen. Setting aside the trend line break there are other signals that help to determine a daily cycle low. Timing band is one of the criteria. Also normally present in a daily cycle decline is the True Strength Indicator delivering a bearish zero line crossover also along with the formation a weekly swing.

A Low is Nigh

0

The daily equity cycle peaked on day 40, formed a swing high and began its daily cycle decline. Thursday’s bullish reversal could mark the daily cycle low.

spx

Thursday was the lowest point following the day 40 peak. At 46 days stocks are deep in their timing band to print a daily cycle low. Thursday’s bullish reversal has eased the parameters for forming a swing low. A break above 2369.08 forms a swing low and has good odds to mark the daily cycle low.

Normally we would like to see break below the daily cycle trend line before looking for a daily cycle low. But this daily cycle is extremely right translated and it does not look like the daily cycle decline will break the daily cycle trend line.

Setting aside the trend line break there are other signals that help to determine a daily cycle low. Timing band is one of the criteria. Seeing the TSI deliver a bearish zero line crossover and the formation a weekly swing are normally present as stocks decline into a daily cycle low.

spx weekly 1

And stocks have formed a weekly swing.

spx weekly 2

The is week 18 for the intermediate equity cycle. Stocks have entered their timing band to seek out an intermediate cycle low. With a right translated daily cycle formation assured, stocks will need one more daily cycle in order to complete the intermediate cycle decline. Allowing 6 – 8 weeks for the completion of one more daily cycle will take the intermediate cycle deep into its timing band for an intermediate cycle low. Therefore we will watch for signs that the impending new daily cycle will form as a left translated, failed daily cycle.
