The best time to buy stocks is at the bottom of an intermediate cycle low like we had back in March. They occur on average every 8-10 months. We will have one in December. The second best time to buy stocks is at the bottom of a daily cycle low. Every larger intermediate advancing cycle is comprised of 3-5 smaller daily cycles. This pattern has evolved and changed over the last 10 years as monetary intervention by the Fed has become more aggressive. The easiest, safest thing to do is wait for the softball pitch when a DCL or ICL occurs before buying. However, most investors never develop the patience to trade in that manner and end up over-trading and taking too many unnecessary losses. We have a DCL coming next week that should produce a nice 10-14 day long trade. Not all stocks will participate - ETF’s are safest. This is not the time for excessive leverage in options this late in the advancing intermediate cycle. Constant and consistent use of options or leverage 100% of the time will almost always end up with the same result: a blown up account. Pick your spots carefully. There are times to be greedy and we will always point them out.
Depending on how badly the Fed wants to defend the market, we may just produce a small undercut low 3,290 SPX next week. However, if allowed to correct naturally, the SPX may see 3,220 into September 17/18, our buy zone. Most likely BIB and SPXL or TQQQ will be our trades.
Metals are in a tedious whipsaw pattern which will most likely continue into the end of October. Some tradable short term swings are possible, but our buy-and-hold setup will occur late October into early December.
Bitcoin is fueling up for the biggest move of the year over the next 45 days. November 1st is only 33 trading days away.
Between the end of September and October 21st, value hunters will push Denny’s to $15-$16 per share.
When we look at a longer term chart on X, we see it's consolidating for the next leg higher. The exact date of a steel sector explosion is unknown. We are disappointed it has not occurred yet, but feel highly confident it is a matter of when - not if - it occurs. Once the sideways coil completes, there will be a powerful move up.
SPCE is holding the uptrend line nicely. It looks great into October.
Crude is vital towards keeping the global economy going. Price will stay supported in the sweet spot region ($36-$45) by world governments. We do not see a collapse in price.
