Technical Observations On An Extremely Overbought Market With 123 Consecutive Closes Above The 55 DMA

Tyler Durden's picture


While John Noyce covers his usual fare of weekly FX technical developments, with an emphasis on the EURUSD, the AUDUSD, the USDSEK, the NZDUSD,  and broadly the extremely low level of implied vol in FX (unlike commodities - we expect a switch from commodity implied vol to FX very soon), as well as a very curious collapse in correlation between G10 FX implied vol basket, the VIX and the EURAUD spot. But the most notable observation is what may happen to stocks now that the 55 Day Moving Average is in danger of being breached for the first time in 123 days. The two key support trendlines are the August uptrend since August, which is at 1,300 and the 55 DMA, which is at 1,284. Should both of these be taken out, there is no technical support until the Jackson Hole level of mid 1,000s.

From Noyce:

  • The S&P has so far done the absolute minimum correction, in terms of it has tested the uptrend from the August ‘10 lows at 1,300
  • However, as discussed in a number of updates and client meetings over the last couple of weeks, the thing which “concerns” us in terms of it being a warning of a larger move is the fact that the market has been above the 55-dma for such an extreme period on a daily close basis.
  • With Wednesday’s close above the market having spent 123 consecutive daily sessions above this particular moving average (it hasn’t made a daily close below since 1st September ‘10). This is very extreme by historic standards and takes the S&P to a greater period above its 55-dma than that which equity markets in other regions (particularly Asia) managed before they began to correct over recent weeks.
  • The other notable point about the recent price action is the extreme move seen on Monday where the market posted its largest one-day %age decline since the recent rally began in earnest on 27th August ‘10.
  • In terms of levels from here;
    • The uptrend from the 27th August low’s at 1,300
    • A similar size correction to that which took place from the 5th November high to the 16th November low (in point terms) would target 1,290
    • The 55-dma stands at 1,284
  • In conclusion we’re by no means making an argument for a real “downtrend” in equities to begin, it’s too early to make that type of statement, but, the risks of a larger correction developing do seem quite high.

Also, the US is now more overstreteched than any other world markets:

  • The charts opposite show the same count of the number of days the market achieved above the 55-dma for the Kospi and Taiex (the Korean and Taiwanese benchmarks)
    • These two markets, from their lows in May ‘10, developed some of the cleanest and most steady trends of the various national benchmark indices in the Asian region. However, even given that backdrop, they only managed to achieved 111 and 109 consecutive daily closes above their respective 55-dmas before breaking back below on a daily close basis and correcting further.
    • With this in mind, just in pure comparison terms, the chances that the S&P achieves a daily close back below its 55-dma which stands at 1,284 seem quite high (as a reminder, up until Wednesday, the S&P has made 123 consecutive daily closes above its 55-dma).

On the other hand, with the market correlating about 0.9 with the size of the Fed's balance sheet, as was first demonstrated
on Zero Hedge, to say that charts, technicals, fundamentals, or
anything besides central planning matters, can seem naive to many.

Another interesting chart for those who still believe the VIX is still relevant (we believe the SKEW is much more important than the VIX, but that is a different story).

  • As always it’s difficult to calculate targets for the VIX, but the way the index is breaking quite impulsively higher from its recent wedge like consolidation against the April ‘10 lows and the fact that you can argue some sort of double bottom pattern is in place certainly warns that we could see further upside.

Agree. The whole meltup proved it. Nobody did or even could trade of technicals because the signals operative under free market conditions never occurred. The Bernanke put and $7 billion liquidity per day was the only technical anybody needed to know. Fibo who??

Indeed we have seen a tendency to pull back at the last second from breaking critical support but the fact also still remains that volume comes back on the downside.  Big volume and prices drop hard, that much hasn't changed.

Increasing Oil Prices is the game changer.  POMO and QE cannot take up the slack when the final oil issues surface.  If you fo to any oil blog they are all talking about the "Great Bull Oil market of 2011.  These guys are goig to be bidding up the price as speculation takes hold in the face of actual reduction of oil production because of the spreading contagion of rioting in the oil states.

Benny is now screwed, because all the increase in oil is taking out all the winding up he has been doing.  Gas hits the $3.50 average and this market slows considerably and all those Small Busniess change their positins, change their business plans, layoff a few more and the rest.  This all in the face of muni bond collapse, and the cities, states laying off hundreds of teachers and public servants.  Last I checked the total number of teachers proposed across the US for cuts between now and June is somewhere in the range of 200,000-300,000.  That is a big dent and will put the risk off trade into permanent in the numtual funds.  Add in the reduction of consumer spending brought on by gas increases and the perfect storm for the GD II.

Technical analysis is ccrewed, but the markets now cannot continue on this as the "new normal".  It is now the same as 2008, and the speculators will drive the oil up this time to $180 in the opinion of the oil speculator blogs.

Game over!

The TA rule as of late, and what I got out of it, is that the 55 day is sacrosanct. Thru June AKA: QEIII. 

The 55 day rule is being tested right now and looks to have passed.

Self ass kicking is also in play here, as Ben is saying 'what are you waiting for, leverage up'.

take your aapl for instance, i'm pretty sure tyler's done nothing but ridicule it all the way up.  he's a brilliant mind that completely missed that one too.  or at the very least, caused others to miss it.

tyler's a very rich source of information with just one major flaw.

Tyler hasn't "missed" anything because Tyler doesn't proffer stock buying tips or suggestions. He has consistently and repeated dismissed the basis for the run-up in stock prices as nothing more than manipulation and Ponzi economics. He has never said you can't take advantage of the insanity other than to say those who wish to play in this market are taking on much more risk than they are bargaining for.

His most direct observation has been that it's insane to think you can safely play in an insanely manipulated market. He never said you couldn't make money, only that the game is rigged and you can loose very quickly in a rigged game. His advice was to stay out of any game you know to be rigged. He has also said large profits can be made if you are nimble and reckless. The ultimate question he has posed is how to you keep those profits?

I guess my last yen years or so was random luck. I cant call shit anymore.

When I gave up my silver short that is when we had the correction. I have closed out all my bearish options positions and sold spxu. That means an intermediate top is just about in. I am just an ordinary contrary troll.

Now I am just living off past successes like the 40 year old high school quarterback.

However I am not going to be like jesse livermore. I know when to quit while I am ahead.

Balanced portfolio with a slight overweight to precious metals, emerging markets, small and mid caps, an emphasis on dividend payers, and a slight underweight to bonds. I got 20 more years until I need it.

To me this seems to be nothing more than a giant scheme to drive out non-insiders. Since retail abandoned this BS ride well over a year ago we have mostly professional traders left in the market. We still have the 1-2 % insider group and all of those other hedge funds/institutional non-insider investors left. My guess is the insiders will have to shear the clueless ranks to make any money. Retail was easy, professional traders less so.

Let's do a quick review.

Take the global bond market, and assume a percentage of those holders are concerned about the long-term prospect of inflation.

Assume the equity market serves as their main hedge in percentage terms.

Assume the Fed is unlikely to sterilize in the near future, if ever.

Wouldn't one expect equities to behave this way?

The depth of their correction here serves as perhaps the most reliable indicator of ensuing currency price-action.

Rather than a 'giant scheme' I see the stupidest game in the world. Reflate the stock market by handing out money for hookers and bottles and hoping the plebes can live off the stuff that trickles. Believing that reflating the stock market can reverse all the decades of rot in the national and global economy. Using the market to stuff cash on corporate balance sheets and assuming it gets re-deployed in the US economy. It's just the latest and most extreme version of the stunts the Fed's been pulling since 1982.

MOST current economic thinking in based on two economic realities.

1. -  The "Bennie and the Jets" put and the belief that the FED as lender of last resort will not let world markets sink into depression mode.

2. -  There is no alternative to point # 1 above. Anything other than #1 will invite world economic destruction.

Look at world economic news. Most governments as well as the major central banks are coordinating this as best they can. Whether we are where we are due to sinister behind the scenes forces or not, is really not the issue. World money based on debt has boxed everyone into the current operating mode.

There are really only 2 questions left.

- Can this continue in perpetuity and if not when does it stop?

- Is there or can there be a plan for the future, when one or more major world economy experiences failure?

I've also got 1275ish, 1230ish, 1175ish, and 1130ish on the chart (interesting reoccurring levels there).

i think the idea of "repealing the law of healthy corrections" is indeed unhealthy. now pardon me while engage in my own personal variant of a "pump and dump" scheme.

This analysis is brilliant. The Bernanke cash flimflam can't work forever, and when the normally super-Bullish GS starts talking like this, watch out below. Don't count on ES at 1400 any time soon.

I'd say that "everybody" "knows" that Bernanke is going to fuck this up......

"Everybody" "knows" that interest rates will be low for an extended period.

I don't know shit. I just trade.

I like Simple Moving averages. Exponential averages are valid, if you walk away from your trade. I never walk away from any trade. I want SPOT moving averages to work with. Look @ flows . Would you trade a yard in New YORK and play skippy in London?

Long time listener, first time caller. Anyone else catch the Oscar acceptance speech that started by calling out the lack of prosecutions of the bankster criminals? Probably not (since y'all avoid these "circus' fo the masses") but it made me nod vehemently and actually look up from my websurfin. If even one sheep awakes it was worth it...
