  • ECRI Leading Index: Consistently Slowing Growth.
    By on August 13, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    The Weekly Leading Index (WLI) growth indicator of the Economic Cycle Research Institute (ECRI) has been oscillating in a narrow range (from 1.6 to 2.1) for the past seven weeks, with the latest reading at 1.7. The interim high of 8.0 was set in the week ending on April 15. The Published Record The ...
  • Percent Buy Index (PBI) Deeply Oversold.
    By on August 13, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    The Percent Buy Index (PBI) has reached levels seen only at the bear market lows in 2002-2003 and 2009-2010, and we think it has very negative implications. At Decision Point we apply a medium-term timing model to all the stocks in the S&P 500 Index, and track the percentage of buy signals. The ...

  • Volatility Skew Indicates Dead-Cat Bounce.
    By on August 11, 2011 | 469 Comments469 Comments  Comments
    On a day to day basis the volatility skew is not a reliable signal for the direction of equities. What is reliable though is the trend and the charts below indicate that equities have further to fall within this current downtrend. Skew VS SPX The following chart is the skew (with no reference to the...
  • Where Was The Volume Today?.
    By on August 10, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    Pull up any intraday 5 minute chart and you’ll see the same as shown of the SPY below. Zero volume during a truly massive move higher. We are now in the much anticipated bounce. How much higher this goes is not quite clear but considering the chart below it doesn’t appear current prices are low...
  • Does HFT Make Volume Statistics Useless?.
    By on August 6, 2011 | 444 Comments444 Comments  Comments
    READER COMMENT: I have written to you before regarding your comments on volume (“where is the volume?”) which imply that volume “confirms” a move.  To me, like many others, volume no longer means anything, or at least not what it used to mean.  See the recent speech by Andre...

  • Today’s Market Recap.
    By on August 4, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    So traders expected the March 16 low of 1,249 on the SPX to hold today and guess what. It failed as if it never existed. The bottom that fell out of this market is a telling sign of the low volume melt up since QE2 and the lack of buyer conviction. The 1,262 back test of the head and shoulde...
  • The Single Most Reliable Indicator
    By on August 4, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    In this video excerpt, Elliott Wave Financial Forecast Editor Steve Hochberg explains one of the most important things to keep in mind when assessing a market, “Extreme opinions, shared widely, constitute the single most reliable indicator of an impending change of direction for a market.&#...

    By on August 2, 2011 | 35 Comments35 Comments  Comments
    July 28 would have been Ralph N. Elliott’s 140th birthday, so it’s a fitting time to post an excerpt from his essay, “The Basis of the Wave Principle.” There’s nothing like reading for yourself what the discoverer of the Wave Principle wrote about how it works. This ess...
  • IV Skew Update.
    By on July 26, 2011 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments
    I continue to study the IV skew and wanted to share a few interesting charts showing how well it correlates with the SPX. I prefer to view the skew relative to the vix (referred to as divergence throughout this post) as it appears far more correlated to the SPX versus on its own. For those new to th...
  • Indecision Indicates Big Move Brewing…
    By on July 26, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    Every year millions of investors continue to have their hard-earned investment gains wiped out by decisions based on hope. And the biggest problems causing this is simply that most investors are not armed with a complete toolbox to make the right decisions, and or worse still – they are payi...

    By on July 20, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    The European Banking Authority announced Friday that 8 banks had failed their stress tests and 16 more had narrowly passed. But the results drew much criticism from analysts, who said that the stress test is not strict enough. Indeed, this is something that European Financial Forecast readers have...
  • Your Portfolio is STILL Historically Overvalued.
    By on July 16, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    Over the past year, the Dow has risen from near 10,000 to around 12,500 today. This recent history makes it easy to think that the 2007-09 declines (when the Dow dropped below 6600) . But don’t fall into that kind of complacent thinking: Your portfolio is still historically overvalued. How ...
  • Finding Potential “Hook” Trade Setups.
    By on July 13, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    Trading using technical indicators — such as the MACD, for example, Moving Average Convergence-Divergence — can do one of two things: help you or hinder you. Using them as a forecasting method alone can be about as predictable as flipping a coin. But when you combine them with other form...
