Exceptional Risk/Reward Opportunity For US Stocks
The Asbury 6, our Tactical risk management model, is a combination of six diverse market metrics that we have combined to look beyond the day-to-day, up-and-down noise of the stock market to determine its actual health — in much the same way as a doctor first checks the patient’s vital signs during an office visit.
We view the “A6” as a lie detector test for the market. It helps us to identify real, sustainable market advances or declines from computer-driven traps for investors — the latter which are often generated by algorithmic (computerized) trading which now accounts for as much as 80% of daily market volume.
The Asbury 6, as shown below, is currently on a February 21st Negative signal with four of six constituent metrics red or bearish.
It would take four green (bullish) constituent metrics — two more than exist right now — to turn the “A6” back to positive and suggest a new Tactical buying opportunity in the S&P 500.
This is particularly important right now because the S&P 500 is at a major inflection point. The chart below shows that the US broad market index rose above major resistance on January 23rd to indicate an emerging major bullish trend change and has since pulled back to retest that breakout area — at 3987 to 3886 — as major underlying support.
A shift back to a Positive, bullish signal in the Asbury 6 would indicate that the internal health of the market has improved enough to signal a new Tactical buying opportunity from this major decision point in the US broad market index.
More About The Asbury 6: The Asbury 6, updated daily in our Research Center, is a combination of six diverse market metrics that were combined to look beyond the day-to-day, up-and-down noise of the stock market to determine its real health — in much the same way as a doctor checks the patient’s vital signs during an office visit. The “A6” helps us to identify real, sustainable market advances or declines from computer-driven traps for investors. Four or more metrics in one direction indicate a Tactical bias. The dates in each cell indicate when each individual constituent turned either positive (green) or negative (red). When all Asbury 6 are positive, market internals are the most conducive to adding equities exposure to portfolios.
