Bull Market Bear Market

Recommended Posts

How to decide hmm,  here's an interesting chart (1920s to present) with a neat interpretation (Bearish market phases in rectangles). So this Bull run has another 10 years to go? What say you?

whilst interesting, should you not measure top to bottom, rather than  waiting for an all time high to confirm another bull market. For example, can you not say that we've been in  bull market since 2009? We can't say we're not in a bull market from 2009 to 2014 surely?

it's a tough one. I think we're running on fumes personally. when it breaks liquidity will be thin and it'll plummet like a rock. theres so much central government manipulation this time around as well. If that goes then likely we'll see a hyper cycle pull back.

Yes, I would consider measuring from the bottom more correct but then hey? the top chart (1920s on) does show a nice symmetry to it though. The 2 big recent bear dives never actually triggered the official bear market descriptive title.

Strong GDP and low inflation, with strong corporate earnings?, - still quite a long way from recessionary.

True. Its a tough one. In my mind there have actually been a few 'triggers' which haven't come through in the market. Lots of opportunity to kick off the short but the market bulldozers on.

We're at a pretty low vol period at the moment. That's probably an indicator on the contrarian viewpoint that things are about to get interesting.

What event that will be (up / down / vol around a consolidation) who knows.

3 interesting charts, US 10 year treasuries and treasury yield then yield on S&P comparing now to the two previous market highs. Not much happening in bonds especially since FOMC 6th Feb.

    • Wow. Just look at the volatility. The price action is erratic to say the least. This has happened before on quite a few occasions in the past.  In one hour from my initial post to this post the price action has reversed. It is all about waiting for a clear signal for which direction these indices are going to go in. 
    • So you have to admit this S&P chart is as bullish as you could get, traders have been waiting for the Fed who haven't disappointed, have refused to break lower during that wait and are just staring at that ATH just a short reach away. Barring a war there seems nothing to hold back the continued march onward and upward. Daily chart; 
    • I think we now have the potential and it is potential shorting opportunity on Dow Jones (Wall Street), S&P 500 (US 500) and Nasdaq (US Tech 100) as well as other indices. The FTSE 100 is not looking too good in advance of Brexit. The 'daily' chart is looking rather bearish. The price action is looking bearish. However the price has not breached any of the key moving average indicators as of yet for the US 500. Hence why I am using the word potential in terms of trading opportunity. Some of the ultra aggressive traders will already be short the S&P 500 and other similar indices but if they are wrong the price does not continue downwards then they will be out quickly.
