According to history, inauguration day is up only 30% of the time.  Today the tick closed at +232 which is a little exuberant.   Last Friday volume jumped near 100% compared to the previous trading days and suggested short term exhaustion.  Exhaustion days are usually tested and tested on lighter volume would be a bullish sign.  If panic is recorded in the tick and trin a bullish setup could form short term on the test of Friday’s low.  We noticed that the January 8 high has not been tested and could be an upside target if a bullish signal develops short term (SPY). 

We updated this chart from last Thursday.  Last Thursday we said, “Above is the daily SPX/TLT ratio (SPX 500/ 20 yr Treasury) going back three years.  When the RSI of the SPX/TLT ratio gets above 70 (red vertical lines), short term highs are common.  January 8 the RSI closed at 75.08, the highest RSI reading so far and also the highest SPX price.”   Because of the SPX/TLT RSI >70; it would seem upside is limited.  We don’t think a large correction is in the making right now but a consolidation or trading range is likely.  Another interesting statistics is that on Inauguration day the market is up only 30% of the time (from 1921 to 2017); suggesting tomorrow has a 70% chance of being down (SPX, TLT).  

Last week we showed the weekly GDXJ chart (which is bullish).  Above is the monthly HUI.  Monthly HUI had a major breakout in June 2020 near the 275 range and that once resistance level now turns into support.   The current price for HUI is near 284 and if the market did go back to test the breakout level near 275, it would mean a drop of 3.5%.  Over head resistances are the 2012 low near 400 (41% rise from here) and 2012 high near 525 (85% rise from here) and will be upside targets. The monthly 10 and 15 moving averages are rising which suggests momentum is up. Appears market is using up time before the next rally begins.  Being patience for now. Long GDX on 10/9/20 at 40.78 (GDX, HUI).
