Asbury Research’s Stock Market Update & Asbury Investment Management Video: February 5th, 2019

The January Market Rebound: The Resumption of The 2009 Bull Market, Or Just A Correction In An Uncompleted Bear Market?

In our January 2nd Keys To This Week report (access requites subscription), we suggested that our subscribers “consider putting a small, preliminary percentage of available assets to work at or near this level in the event that the US stock market does indeed stabilize from decade-long support levels.”  We actually displayed and discussed one of those secular support levels, in the NYSE Composite Index (NYSE), in our previous January 23rd free update.

About 2 weeks later, in mid January, we suggested that subscribers consider putting an additional portion of available assets to work as the benchmark S&P 500 (SPX) rose above what we considered to be primary minor overhead resistance at 2600.

The chart below shows that SPX has since risen by an additional 140 points or 5% and is currently testing major overhead resistance at 2741.  It represents the index’s 200-day moving average, a widely-watched major trend proxy.

S&P 500 daily since September 2018

If SPX can manage to sustain a rise above SPX 2741, while maintaining its recent technical strength as indicated by our Asbury 6 key market internals, it will clear the way for a retest of the September 2018 all-time high of 2741. 

If the market weakens from here, however, it would warn that the current major downtrend in the S&P 500 is resuming. If it’s the latter, we will move to a defensive stance that protects investor assets.

The video available below shows how we have actually managed investor assets amid these recent market conditions for our Asbury Research Management clients.

The Asbury 6: How We Determine Risk On From Risk Off Environments

As we see it, one of our primary roles at Asbury Research is keep our subscribers from losing money in the market.  We do this by analyzing market conditions every day because, most of the time, you can spot emerging trouble before it becomes apparent in the major indexes.  That is, if you know where to look.

One of the ways we do this is via our Asbury 6, six key market internals. 

We think of the Asbury 6 as the cylinders of a six cylinder car.  When all six are firing, the car continues moving down the road, over hills and around obstacles.  However, if these cylinders stop functioning, then one-by-one, little-by-little, the car loses its ability to continue moving forward. 

The following are recent examples of how this metric works in both Risk Off and Risk On Environments.

The table below shows that, as of October 10th of last year, four of our Asbury 6 had moved into negative territory to indicate an emerging Risk Off Environment.  (Note: The Asbury 6 is updated daily and is accessible to subscribers in our password-protected Research Center.)

Asbury 6 Key Market Internals Through October 10th

This negative shift in stock market internals, which occurred just 13 days after the S&P 500 (SPX) set its all-time high on September 21st, preceded a 438.00 point, 16% decline by SPX into the December 26th lows.

More recently, on January 9th, the table below shows that four of the Asbury 6 moved back into positive territory to indicate an emerging Risk On Environment.  The S&P 500 has since risen by 123.00 points or 5%.

Asbury 6 Key Market Internals Through January 9th

The final table below shows that, as of today, all six of the Asbury 6 are in positive territory.

Asbury 6 Key Market Internals Through January 30th

As long as the Asbury 6 remain positive, the current rally will continue.  If they start to turn negative, however, it will indicate the market’s vulnerability to another decline. Moreover, the longer the Asbury 6 remain negative, the longer the decline will last.

And, most important, based on past performance, our clients should know that the next market decline is coming before it has a chance to do serious damage to their portfolios.

Asbury Research’s Stock Market Update & Asbury Investment Management Video: January 23rd, 2019

The US Stock Market: At A Long Term Decision Point

In our previous Asbury Research’s Stock Market Update & Asbury Investment Management Video, dated December 27th, entitled The US Stock Market: On The Verge Of A Bear Market, we said that the US stock market, and global stock markets in general, remained in the midst of a major downtrend that we first started warning investors about — and first started protecting investor portfolios from — back in early October.

But something interesting and potentially very important was happening as we were writing that update.

The chart below plots the NYSE Composite Index (NYSE) weekly since 2009 along with its 52-week moving average, the latter a major trend proxy.  Although we acknowledge that NYSE may not be the most popular index to invest in, its extremely tight and stable positive correlation to the S&P 500 (SPX) at various intervals over the past 40 years — most recently a essentially lockstep 0.99 over the past 3 months — strongly suggests that as goes NYSE, so is likely to go SPX.

NYSE weekly since 2009

The green highlights show that NYSE tested — and actually declined slightly below — its March 2009 secular uptrend line at the very end of December, but has since aggressively rebounded from it.  Meanwhile, similarly important secular support levels were also tested and held, at right about the same time, in a number of other US stock indexes and key sector ETFs — all which are also positively correlated to the S&P 500.

This tells us that, even though the major trend in the S&P 500 — and in about 85% of the 60 global stock indexes we track — is still down (bearish) according to its position below its 200-day moving average, a longer term bottom could be emerging at those late December lows.  More detail on this emerging major inflection point for the US stock market is available in our premium research service.

The video below shows in more detail how we have navigated these market conditions for Asbury Research Management clients over the past several weeks.

Asbury Research’s Stock Market Update & Asbury Investment Management Video: December 27th, 2018

The US Stock Market: On The Verge Of A Bear Market

Our previous Asbury Research’s Stock Market Update & Asbury Investment Management Video, dated December 14th, was entitled US Stock Market: On The Brink Of A Deeper DeclineThe benchmark S&P 500 (SPX) closed at 2600 on that day and subsequently collapsed by an additional 253 points or 9.7% by December 26th.

The US stock market, and global stock markets in general, remain in the midst of a major downtrend that we first started warning investors about, and first started protecting investor portfolios from, back in early October.  You can go back through previous issues of this update to see how we were approaching this situation as it emerged.

Although there are a lot of additional market metrics that we use to determine risk-on from risk-off investing environments, our overall methodology for avoiding risk and protecting client portfolios during this very tough period has been a simple 2-step process:

  1. identify the key market levels below the market in the major US stock indexes, and
  2. measure the market’s internal strength at each one of these levels to determine if there is enough of a positive change to first facilitate a bottom and then, ideally, to fuel a bullish reversal.

Several key price levels below the market have already been tested but, at least thus far, none of them has held because our key market internals — which we call The Asbury 6 as shown in the table below — have been negative across the board.

The Asbury 6 through 12-26-2018

When all Asbury 6 are positive, market internals are the most conducive to adding risk to portfolios. Each negative reading adds an additional element of risk to participating in current or new investment ideas.

We update this table daily and make it available to Asbury Research subscribers.  The Asbury 6 is also an important component of the process we use to manage risk in client portfolios — which helped us to avoid most of this nasty 4th Quarter decline.

The video below shows in more detail how we have navigated these treacherous conditions for Asbury Research Management clients over the past several weeks.

Initial Downside Targets Met in Russell 2000 (RUT), NYSE Composite (COMP). More Weakness Coming?

From Monday’s (December 17th) Keys To This Week (access requires subscription):

“This week, the most important new development is technical breakdowns in several US stock indexes which collectively target an additional 3% to 6% move lower, depending on the index.  Meanwhile, all of our Asbury 6 key market internals begin the week in negative territory, indicating that conditions are currently the least favorable for adding risk to portfolios/ most favorable for a deeper decline.”

The indexes we were specifically talking about in that report were the S&P 500 (SPX), Russell 2000 (RUT), and NYSE Composite (NYSE). 

  • RUT has since declined by 4.3% from Friday’s (Dec 14th) close to meet our 1350 target today.
  • NYSE has since declined by 3.5% from Friday’s (Dec 14th) close to meet our 11,350 target today.
  • SPX has already declined by 3.6% from Friday’s (Dec 14th) close, and by 7.2% since our December 6th Special Report entitled This Week’s Reversal Threatens A Much Larger Decline.  That forward-looking report appears below.

SPX still has an additional 2.3% to go to meet our 2450 target.


Special Report

This Week’s Reversal Threatens A Much Larger Decline

Posted on: Thursday, December 6th, 2018

Conclusion, Investment Implications, Strategy

Tuesday’s sharp downward reversal from critical overhead resistance at 2817 in the  S&P 500 (SPX) has set up a potentially bearish chart pattern in the benchmark US index.  A sustained decline below SPX 2643 would confirm it and would then target an additional 7% decline to 2450, or a total of 9% from Tuesday’s 2700 close.

Analysis

Chart 1 below plots SPX daily since July along with its 200-day (major trend proxy) and 50-day (minor trend proxy) moving averages.  The red highlights show that the large, directionless gyrations of the past 5 weeks have formed a pattern of investor indecision that is bordered by 2800 above the market and by 2643 below it.

Chart 1

A sustained decline below the lower boundary at 2643 would confirm a bearish resolution to this indecision and would target an additional 7% decline to 2450.


We hope our market analysis helped Asbury Research Subscribers to avoid some of the recent market weakness. Feel free to contact us at any time to discuss our latest research, or your portfolio.


Our Downside Targets Met In TSN, KCE

Tyson Foods, Inc. (TSN) Meets Our $54.00 Downside Target

In our December 4th Asbury Alert, entitled Tyson Foods, Inc. (TSN): Resuming Late 2017 Decline (access requires subscription), we pointed out the retest of a November 13th breakdown from months of sideways investor indecision that targeted an additional 8% decline to $54.00 per share.

Here is the chart from that report.

TSN: May 2018 to December 4th

This updated chart shows that our 54.00 downside target was met earlier today.

TSN: May 2018 to December 17th


SPDR KBW Capital Markets ETF (KCE) Meets Our $48.50 Downside Target

In our December 10th Keys To This Week report, we pointed out a breakdown from about 6 weeks of sideways investor indecision in KCE, which represents the capital markets segment of the S&P Total Market Index (“S&P TMI”) and tracks the performance of publicly traded companies that do business as broker-dealers, asset managers, trust and custody banks or exchanges.

We said this breakdown indicated its larger August 2nd downtrend was resuming and targeted an additional 3% decline to $48.50.

KCE: June 2018 to December 17th

The chart above shows that our 48.50 target was met earlier today.
