Market Bears Wait For The Fall From The Wall

With a market up 17% from the December lows, many, including myself, are left wondering if we should still consider this a dead cat bounce or the foundation for a melt up.

Technically speaking, only Biotechnology (IBB) and Semiconductors (SMH) have entered a weekly bullish phase.

And both need to close above their weekly 50-WMAs again this week to confirm.

That means IBB must close the week above 109.90 and SMH above 101.06.

What makes that fascinating yet not altogether convincing for more rally, is that as the only 2 MF sectors in bullish phases, both are the more speculated sectors.

Compared to the Russell 2000 (IWM), Transportation IYT, Retail (XRT) and Regional Banks (KRE), they are not as accurate for predicting the health of the U.S. economy.

IWM, IYT, and KRE are in caution phases on the weekly charts.

XRT is in a distribution phase.

For those waiting for Humpty Dumpty to fall, what does that mean?

To remind you of what Raymond Lo, Master of Feng Shui and a highly accurate market predictor for the Chinese New Year of the Pig has to say about which sectors could fall:

“…Water industries such as shipping, transport, communication, etc., are not very prosperous.Also, the money to water industry is fire, which is totally absent.Metal industry such as banking, machinery, cars, also into unfavorable year as the money element to metal is wood, and wood is totally absent.”

If we translate that into tradeable sectors, IYT (transportation), IWM (encompasses a lot of machinery and manufacturing), KRE (banking), communication (social media and possibly FAANG), and TSLA, General Motors, and Ford, could be the places to look for shorts.

Interesting that IYT, IWM, and KRE are among the weakest of the MF.

Economic cycles are key. That is exactly what the Family was designed to do-keep you abreast of those cycles.

Also interesting is that Retail, XRT is the weakest sector.

Lo does say that :

“The yin earth element of 2019 is expected to bring prosperity to wood industries and earth industries; this is because wood conquers earth, so the earth element is a symbol of money to the wood industry, which includes fashion, media, paper, books, education, and environmental industry“.
