Cycles indicate climax Friday/Saturday

FOR FRIDAY: (8/11) We won’t be bored with the dog days of summer through Labor Day now and I suspect traders are happy—it just makes taking stuff home harder and then getting in again in the morning. Not sure that Trump or Korea will give up any male/territorial ground and the better days for something…

Cycles less volatile Thursday/Friday

FOR THURSDAY: (8/10) Cycles are less volatile Thursday/Friday so we’ll give a chance for secondary high to come in on stocks. Still, at some point, the tension is going to escalate with North Korea into Aug. 21-26 and the cycles remind me of the Gulf War in 1990 where the markets fell and then we…

Markets may get rattled by North Korea tensions

FOR WEDNESDAY: (8/9) Trade upset by more saber-rattling with North Korea and given an intensification of cycles into Aug. 26-27 around this, not sure it will end well.

Cycles for today offer the best chance for stocks to retreat

FOR WEDNESDAY: (8/2) Cycles for today offer the best chance for stocks to retreat if DOW mania and APPLE to 1000 don’t take over. The rest of the markets are usually congestive into employment report but at the moment it looks like gold and silver are lower on Friday and the dollar higher and T-notes…

First-of-the-month volatility likely

FOR TUESDAY: (8/1) First-of-the-month volatility is likely, as we often get larger-range days the 1st day of the week before employment report. Sometimes we can get a 20-30 point range in the S & P but then again the VIX is so low we would be thrilled to get 15. Dollar breaking down isn’t letting…

Cycles seem positive enough for some buying

FOR MONDAY: (7/31) We crunched data for August and September and have some results below. Monday is end of the month fund profit-taking and rollover on August gold and more sluggish post-vacation energy. Even if we’re worried about end of the month profit-taking on stocks, cycles seem positive enough for some buying with Tuesday/Wednesday having…
