Weekly Stock Market Commentary 8/22/14

By Lawrence G. McMillan

The rally that began on August 8th has extended quickly and strongly to take $SPX to new intraday and closing all-time highs. When it crossed over resistance at 1960, the $SPX chart improved from "bearish" to "neutral." If another all-time closing high is registered today, that will officially make the $SPX chart "bullish."

Equity-only put-call ratios are in one of those in-between states. Consider the two charts in Figures 2 and 3. You can see that they have curled over in the last three or four days. That is apparently a buy signal -- at least to the naked eye. However, the computer programs that analyze these charts continue to rate them as "bearish."

Market breadth has been quite positive. As a result, both breadth oscillators are on buy signals, and they are in overbought territory.

Volatility indices dropped to very low levels. At these levels, volatility is benign, and stocks can rise.

In summary, all of the indicators have swiftly swung back to "bullish" except for the put-call ratios. A consecutive close at new highs will make the intermediate-term outlook bullish once again.

Stock Market Tops: A Historical Perspective

By Lawrence G. McMillan

I want to spend just a moment pointing out how these market tops can unfold.  One good example was in 2007.  The market had just made new all-time highs in July and everything seemed wonderful.  Volatility had been low (except for one hiccup back in February, 2007), but no one seemed worried.  Then, $SPX broke down sharply with a 30-point down day (yesterday was a 40-point down day for $SPX), and that unleashed the bears.  The accompanying chart (Figure 5) shows the severity of the decline.  Figure 6 shows how volatility ($VIX) behaved, and shows the power of volatility protection, for when the market declines that quickly, the volatility of volatility increases dramatically.  Also, note that no two markets ever are exactly the same, but this type of scenario could be unfolding now, since it has happened before.

Figure 1 shows the devastation that took place between July 24th and August 16th, 2007. $SPX dropped from 1541 to 1370 at its capitulation low.  There were eight severe down days for $SPX in that stretch.  Figure 2 shows how $VIX did over the same period.  It rose from 16 to 37 (during the capitulation day).

If you want to understand why the Fed's monetary policy has not been working, read this paper read last year at the San Francisco Fed:

A thorough talk on EWI's interpretation of where we are in all markets and the economy and why from a historical perspective with charts, and an explanation of why they didn't think the US stock market would go this high.http://www.elliottwave.com/club/analyst-videos/ewi/steve-hochberg-1...

Rhee, for a noobie like me, I was wondering if you could possibly post a current stock chart that shows the sweet spot you are talking about.  I feel like I have a good number of tools at my disposal to make an informed decision but I'm not quite there in terms of using them correctly.  I understand that "the trend is your friend" and not to "catch a falling knife" but I'm still having some trouble making wise decisions.  Any insight would be appreciated.  Thank you!
