Here we have a picture of our beautiful government sponsored stock market rally. The nice uptrend is apparent. As anyone who reads here knows, I have been wrong recently about the selling opportunity that I thought was here.
The last commentary on this, I had exited my short for a small loss recognizing we were heading higher. We have gone higher since that time as I thought we would. However, we now once again have some interesting things developing. The Blue line on the top chart is the price of the 30 yr bonds. You can see from the olive lines on the top chart that the bond market had been rallying sharply prior to the lows being made. This is a known bullish pattern, and it worked, the market rallied strongly out of those lows. That was one reason of many that I posted late Feb that I thought a rally was coming.
Now we have the opposite situation, bonds declining with stocks rallying, a known bearish pattern. Timing this is another matter, this is a big picture fundamental situation that can take weeks to reverse the price direction as it did at the lows. It is just something to be generally aware of as a backdrop in your analysis.
In the sub graphs, you see the red arrows. These final weekly positions are not in stone yet because the COT report has not been released. These are projections, so they could change. If they were to stay here, we have sentiment back in the bullish camp( bearish ) and my hybrid COT index in the bearish camp ( bearish ). There is also a technical indicator at the bottom that is too complex to explain here, but that is a sell pattern in it.
So, we have a fundamental bearish interest rate situation, with three shorter term bearish indications. As a result, once again I am looking for sell entries. This is not a sell at the market situation, it is a now look for whatever patterns you use to get in and out of things with, and take the sells not the buys.
