Stock Markets: Breakdown Or Successful Test Underway?

The choppiness in stock markets continued last week, after a few bullish days the week before. That’s what happens in a consolidation: a few days up, everyone gets excited and gets in just too late only to find themselves in front of a series of down days. We are still on track for a bullish outcome, in line with our bullish Dow Jones forecast for 2021

As we prepare our new market forecast for 2021 (yes, we are working on our annual market forecasts during this time of the year) we start seeing strong signs of the end of the once-in-a-decade, even once-in-a-century, type of extreme volatility. Shorter term, though, we may expect continued volatility. Very short-term, we have to closely watch the resolution of this pretty special setup in the S&P 500.

The chart below comes from our Trade Alerts service, a short term portfolio that tracks our buy and sell signals in the S&P 500. Year to date, this portfolio delivered +98% profits.

You read this correctly, our portfolio is up 98% and we did so with the highest level of protection and risk management. Since March of this year, all our trades were partial allocations (against the total short term portfolio). That’s the only sane and safe way to protect capital (which is by all means our trading rule #1), while still maximizing profits (which is why we have a smart algorithm and augmented it with disciplined trading rules).

Every weekend we send an educational update with relevant insights for traders. This update features deep insights from leading charts from our research team. We often feature our crash indicators, like VIX, with deep insights from those charts. The S&P 500 chart below is one of them, and the annotations are the ones we analyze in great detail. That’s the guidance we give on top of our very successful buy/sell signals.

That said, we share this chart, exceptionally, in the public domain, as a teaser of the materials our premium members receive.
