Thursday’s Monorail Reinforces Bigger Picture

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve mentioned the Magnificent 7 tech stocks need to report their earnings and then the likelihood of a pullback increases significantly.

Thursday’s action only reinforced that view. Apple, Amazon announce this week. Nvidia on the 23rd August.

I’m not totally clear WHEN the pullback will happen, but that it will happen – and quite soon – is something I AM confident about.

As I said: “As mentioned last week, the likely scenario for this bull run is that the giant techs need to report their earnings before this market can take a proper rest.”

Thursday was a classic ‘monorail’ (outside) bearish bar, but the market recovered its poise on Friday. A break of Thursday’s low would be a constructive sign to the downside.

Our mean-reversion Dashboard pies are not at extremes – and they don’t necessarily get there every time either – but when they do, it sure does make market timing for reversals much easier!

By now I hope you’re seeing the beauty of our method, combining broader structures (Shrinking Retracements) with leveraged position-building activity (the OVI) and more micro structures (price/volume/Key Levels) to form a cohesive strategy to trade consistently.

Today you’ll see a reminder of just how powerful and quick this technique is with our unique tools.

Market Outlook:

Even if it’s just an early shot across the bows, Thursday’s action increases the likelihood of a pullback happening sooner rather than later. Friday was a good recovery, but even if we make new highs, I would expect further bearish monorail bars like Thursday to follow in due course.

Watch the video for more detail.

The Main Indices:

The S&P remains overbought but the first signs of vulnerability are evident.
The QQQ touched its 20-dma and recovered well.
The IWM also remains overbought and will react the most when the inevitable market pullback does happen.
The DIA is still miles overbought, and a break of Thursday’s lows should see it drop to the 20-dma at least.

Market Timers:

  • Longer Term Market Timer (OVIsi):
    Still full green but slowing slightly.
  • Medium Term Swing Timer:
    Bullish and not overbought … yet. It’s now flirting again with being overbought. One of these days it’s going to be official, and meaningful.
  • Index OVIs:
    All the main index OVIs are neutral to negative, and in the QQQ’s case not even neutral. This is somewhat divergent to price action.

Fast Filters Stock Selection:

Fewer nuggets, but a few nevertheless.

Today I’ve included a couple of bearish setups along with some post earnings setups in both directions.

Here is a smaller list of stocks that look interesting for our consideration. Very soon I will only post this in our new Expert Watchlists area, so you’ll have to log in to see it. Remember to reference the video so you know what my sentiment is on each one:


Software Upgrades:

Next week we’ll be deploying the new Expert Watchlists function – this will have profound implications moving forward.

The Journal app calculator and embedded TV will follow.

Then the big charts upgrade and by popular demand, the broker API.

Also the Shrinking Retracements will soon be deployed as TradeFinder filters in VIP areas in their own right.

So, many game-changing upgrades will be made in time for the London Stocks Summit on December 2nd
