The 4/28/17 Weekend Report Preview

The Dollar
$$$

The dollar broke below the previous DCL on Tuesday to form a failed daily cycle.

The previous 7 daily cycles have averaged 32.5 days. Tuesday, day 20, was the lowest point following the day 10 peak. So it is a bit early for a daily cycle low. But we will see on the weekly chart that the dollar has found support at the 50 week MA. (The weekly, yearly, 3 year, and 15 year super cycle is discussed in the Weekend Report) Therefore, a swing low and break of the daily cycle trend line will signal a new daily cycle.

Stocks
stocks

Stocks printed a bearish reversal on Wednesday. The new high on day 21, shifts the odds towards a right translated daily cycle formation.

Stocks are a bit stretched above the 10 day MA and may need to cool off. A break below the 10 day MA will signal that stocks have begun its daily cycle decline. Stocks are in a daily uptrend. They will continue in its daily uptrend until they close below the lower daily cycle band.

Potential Oil Reversal

0

Oil printed a bullish reversal on Thursday.

The daily oil cycle peaked on day 15. It printed its lowest point on Thursday, day 25. That places oil in the early part of its timing band for a daily cycle low. A swing low and a close above the declining 10 day MA will signal a new daily cycle.

oil daily 2

Oil’s daily cycle has averaged 38 days since the February, 2016 low. So it is early to be looking for a DCL. But there are a few signals on the daily and weekly charts that point to a possible 25 day, DCL. First off, the aforementioned bullish reversal has eased the parameters for forming a swing low. A break above 49.22 forms a daily swing low to signal a new daily cycle. Also the oscillators are beginning to develop bullish divergences, which often accompany cycle lows.

oil weekly

The 50 week MA has acted as support since oil emerged from from is 3 year cycle low. So there is a possibility that oil is back testing the 50 week MA. A close below the 50 week MA indicates that oil is continuing its yearly cycle decline. But if Thursday’s bullish reversal marked the daily cycle low, that would allow oil to close above the 50 week MA for the week, which would allow us to construct a weekly cycle trend line. Oil is in a weekly uptrend. It will continue in its weekly uptrend until it closes below the lower weekly cycle band.

Look Test

00

Stocks broke above the declining daily cycle trend line on Monday and then delivered more bullish follow through on Tuesday.

spx daily

Tuesday was day 20 for the daily equity cycle. The new high on Tuesday shifts the odds towards a right translated daily cycle formation. Stocks are also beginning to close back again above the upper daily cycle band to reestablish its daily uptrend. All of this suggests that stocks are not just in a new daily cycle, but a new intermediate cycle as well.

However, many will be skeptical of such a labeling due to the fact that stocks did not form a failed daily cycle during the recent sell-off.

It is possible for an intermediate low to form absent of a failed daily cycle. While this is rare, one did occur back in 2013.

spx daily 2013

Back in 2013 stocks had a daily cycle decline that ran 23 days before printing its daily cycle low. Usually a daily cycle decline lasts 7 – 15 days.

spx weekly 2013

And the weekly chart back in 2013 passed the ‘look test’ for an intermediate decline. Stocks clearly broke below the weekly trend line and formed a weekly swing low to indicate a new intermediate cycle.

spx weeekly

And the current weekly chart also passes the look test. Stocks clearly broke below the weekly trend line as it declined into its week 21 low. Now stocks have delivered a clear and convincing break above the declining weekly trend line to signal that this is week 4 of the new intermediate cycle. And if I am correct that this is a new intermediate cycle then that should push the yearly cycle low out to late summer.

The Dollar
$$$

The dollar formed a swing high and then closed below both the 50 day MA and the 10 day MA to signal that the daily cycle is in decline.

Friday was day 13 for the daily dollar cycle. The previous 7 daily cycles have averaged 33 days. So with a peak on day 10, this daily cycle is likely to form as a left translated daily cycle and continue the pattern of lower highs and lower lows.

Stocks
stocks

Stocks closed below the lower daily cycle band on Friday to indicate that stocks are declining into their daily cycle low.

Closing below the lower daily cycle band signals an end to the daily uptrend. It is also a reliable indicator that the intermediate cycle is in decline. The peak on day 7 locks in a left translated daily cycle formation. A break below 2322.25 would form a failed daily cycle and confirm the intermediate cycle is in decline. And something to keep in mind is that the previous daily cycle was stretched at 58 days. Since cycles tend to balance a stretched cycle with a shortened cycle, we could see a shortened daily cycle here with stocks possibly printing a DCL next week.

Oil Breaks Higher

00

Last Tuesday we looked at oil.

oil 4:04

Last week oil delivered bullish follow through to the weekly swing low. We discussed that oil needed to break above the declining weekly trend line to confirm a new intermediate cycle.

Oil broke above the weekly trend line on Monday.

oil 4:10

Oil delivered a clear and convincing break above the declining weekly trend line on Monday. Barring a complete reversal, this confirms that this is week 3 for the new intermediate oil cycle.

Oil had established a weekly uptrend prior declining into the week 18 low. Oil remained above the lower weekly cycle band as it printed the week 18 intermediate cycle low which indicates that oil remained in its weekly uptrend. Oil broke back above the upper weekly cycle band on Monday, continuing its weekly uptrend. Oil will remain in its weekly uptrend unless it closes back below the lower weekly cycle band.

Oil Bounce or Oil Bull?

0

Oil printed its lowest point on week 18, following the week 7 peak. While 18 weeks is a bit early to expect to see an intermediate cycle low, the weekly swing low and bullish follow through indicate otherwise …

oil weekly

Oil consolidated in a narrow trading range over 11 weeks before declining into the week 18 low. Normally a break out of a narrow range yields a trending move. But the move lower was halted by the 50 week MA, which has also stopped the previous 2 intermediate cycle declines. This has me suspicious that the move lower was a fake out move. And now we see that the the weekly TSI has formed a bullish crossover after emerging from a level that has marked the previous yearly cycle low.

oil weekly 2

If oil is still declining into its intermediate cycle low then it should be turned back at the declining weekly trend line. However a bullish break above the declining weekly trend line will signal that week 18 did host an early intermediate cycle low. We also need to recognize that oil established a weekly uptrend by closing above the upper weekly cycle band before it began its intermediate cycle decline. And oil remains in its weekly uptrend since it not close below the lower weekly cycle band as it declined into the week 18 low.

The Dollar
$$$

The dollar printed its lowest point on Monday, following the peak on day 19. Wednesday’s close above the declining 10 day MA signaled a new daily cycle.

While the previous daily cycle peaked on day 19 for a right translated cycle formation, it printed a lower high. And Monday’s break below the previous DCL establishes a pattern of lower lows. That signals a continuation of the intermediate cycle decline.

Stocks
stocks

Stocks formed a swing low on Tuesday. A break above the declining trend line will confirm a new daily cycle.

Stocks are beginning their 3rd daily cycle for the current intermediate cycle. And stocks are in their timing band to seek out an intermediate cycle low. A failed daily cycle confirms the intermediate cycle decline. What we need to watch is the translation of the new daily cycle. A left translated cycle formation would signal that stocks are declining into its intermediate cycle low.

Stocks remained above the lower daily cycle band is it declined into the day 58 low. Therefore stocks remain in a daily uptrend and will continue in their daily uptrend until it closes below the lower daily cycle band.

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.

The 3/17/17 Weekend Report Preview

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.
