GoodVibe Call - The anatomy of A top

Recs

51

June 10, 2009 – Comments (52) | RELATED TICKERS: GS , AAPL , FAZ

This is a quick post I wanted to pass to you. We have a very good risk/reward spot here of where we are going next. See the chart below.

If we break the black line @ 923.85, the market is a sell. Also, going to 970ish is another spot to sell. This spot has great chance to be a MAJOR top.

If you believe we are going up, then this is your chance to buy with tight stops @ 923.85 or 912.78.

Current 932.57

I hope this adds some value to your thinking.

850-860 is the MAXIMUM S&P500 downside, if we continue to follow my 1975-like pattern in the market.

I suspect the summer will not be very exciting on either the downside or upside for the "averages," and that's how I am playing it in this game.

My best trade idea and CAPS position right now continues to be shorting (selling) or red-thumbing gold and silver assets.  I have dumped most of my gold and silver hedges the last week, and purchased some DZZ (double-short gold) in my IRA in the real world.  I think I have around 60 CAPS bets on gold going down currently.

Goodvibe - you continue to have the best CAPS blog and research "sub-section" on this website.  Keep up the great work!  Maybe one day, TMF will pay you some money for all your effort.

I am selling all the stock mutual funds in my wife's 401k today and moving it to cash.  I think I will be able to rebuy the long exposure in a month or two at a 5%-10% discount to the current pricing.

I have been "deleverging" a little at a time since the first week of May.  At that point, considering all the double long ETF exposure and fully-invested stance in all my IRA and 401k accounts I was probably around 120-130% net long invested from late-January to mid-May, and the vast majority of that was in high-beta stocks (junk stocks according to GMX).

After today, I will still be net long at about 75% of total assets with a heavy dose of safer blue-chips, 5% in various hedges and 20% cash.  I am not looking to sell additional exposure in the near future, and hopefully will ADD stock positions in late-summer and the fall months in preparation for another strong upmove in late-2009 and early 2010.

Today's flip from down to up in the long-term 30-year Treasury bond interest rate trend has me a little worried.  For the first time in a while the 30-year rate of interest is HIGHER than 1-year ago.  This is a great indicator for the stock market and often this interest rate trend change marks an important moment for the averages historically speaking.  A 5%-10% drop in the S&P500 from 950-960 back to 860-890 looks more probable today than a week ago.

I am also hearing the tick-tock of the clock as it expires...for gold's glory days.

Timing will matter.....infact I think the current hedge with Ultras and Healthcare is good. Tiger's betting the farm in CAPS on gold - and that's what possibly could vault him if it comes thru.

As I said you guys are both my favorites - and there are different reasons why.

Tiger's a tad too much bullish - but he might claim he has more experience ( which proabably is true) - hence perspective.

I think portefeuille currently has no Ultras. Just one "underperform" on VW (VLKAY.PK). If there is one (major) stock that could easily double on news it is Porsche. They still have those call options on about 1/4 of the VW shares. Plus they have around 51% of the VW shares. Plus they have some 10B EUR in "net debt". I am just waiting for one headline SWF ... (insert name here) buys VW calls from Porsche. For say 10 or 15B EUR. That would leave Porsche with 51% of VW, no net debt and the Porsche production. That would be a 100% up day. Don't know why I mention this here, but I guess it was because I checked whether portefeuille is currently short anything and now I have written too much to delete it.

Anyone wants to do the Elliott wave thing for Porsche (1)? But after the 100% jump that might become irrelevant (hehe again).

For say 10B EUR. They have never said what the strike of those calls is, but they should not be worth more than 10B EUR, especially since "everyone" knows that VW is "overvalued" currently. Being short VW would still be very risky (outside the "caps" game). Have a look at the "mother of all short squeezes" here.

Hans - I remember that day very well. Even rumors were going around that GS people were shorting the stock and they had to sell their GS shares (GS was down sharply that day) to cover VW. Later we knew who were getting squeezed to death (no pun intended).

For the EW chart you requested, why don't you try it. Although I know you don't buy it much, I know you like a challange. Here you got one.

Tiger - I was happy that this rally did you justice. It was long waiting for you. I hope you traded it well in RL as you did in Caps. Your timing was very good on almost  all trades. You also know where I stand about gold, silver, and miners. I believe miners and silver short are better reward than gold, though.

Last note - Be aware my friend, never trust the over bullish mentality that has been running a mock in the street for the last 30 years even if we go back up again. Stay defensive, it's your retirement money, I believe. I know you've been trading many years before me but I hope I proved to you the gravity of the situation Since the top in 2007. I don't know how you think of things now but I see you still over bullish if you are going to buy again (unless you are willing to let go at one point instaed of B&H for ever). You still believe we are going back to 15K soon? 

Thanks for your constant kind words and cool character and thanks for inviting me to Caps. It was a pleasurable expierence.

And please guys, stop talking about who is gonna be number one or ten. This is where jeoulesy and hate blogs come from. These ranks really make no sense whatsoever and many SMART people in this top list know they can't match their performance here in Caps in real life and they don't let it go to their heads. Try to focus on who is offering some value that can add something to others. Many people here should be there on that "value list" instead of that other "no value" list. And I am not talking about including myself there. :)

For the parallel between now and 2003, I know this is a theory going around the street and pushing the bulls higher in hope it happens again. History can rhyme but never repeat itself. 2003 was a different story altogether.

I know you wrote about the price at which you would get out and revaluate the trade if the spot price broke 16.50 on the upside, but I was wondering if there was also a bottom in the spot price you would get out of the trade?

#6: there's a gap at the 920 level that could indicate a false bottom as the markets correct downward. It's seems logical that we'll see the gap covered with a reversal up from that level before a truer picture unfolds.

The average investor is likely to take the "end of the recession" news as a Buy and drive the markets higher in a couple of weeks so this dip may be the only one we'll see until much later this year.

Some traders in the news have been looking for a dip to the SPX 820 level to feel "ok" with the March bottom but a 100+ point drop will require a catalyst and it's unlikely we'll see one until next year. I for one am hoping this is the case and hope we decisively break out of the down channel that's clearly shown by a weekly view of the SPX from Oct. '07 to the present.

Trying to project what will occur is silly but we are over the 3 month duration that typically reverses for 6-12 weeks.

My 2 cents for what its worth.

What made this stock attractive to me in the beginning was the dividend that kept going up year after year. After the TARP money propped up the bank this dividend was supposedly stuck at $.01 for years. As has happened many times since November, 08 the rules may change again and somehow this stock can continue to climb.

All three supports mentioned in the last chart from Friday were broken. Last hope is left for the bulls to slow down the fall at the lower side of the channel shown in the chart. Whatever comes from here to the upside (if it comes at all) I predict to be a counter move before more downside to come from here.

PS. I lowered my stops to 946 from 970 just in case.

Well right now I am in intensive care from the current Mack truck hit.  Limping along here still trying to pick up some of my marbles.

Several of my stock picks bucked the trend the last 2 days, but not enough to avoid losses. I was expecting a correction this week simply because it is triple witch week. I am still hoping for (expecting) a violent up swing before the end of the week due to options expiration, but it maybe wishfull thinking. I am still long, and staying long with my carefully researched stock picks, as I am convinced they have much higher to go this year, and I do not have the time to watch and trade.  

Interesting to hear that others see the paralell to 2003. I came up with that one on my own based on my own charting research, and you are the first I have read to confirm that others see it too. Interesting to hear that you do not beleive history repeats itself. Sounds contradictory to the entire EWP!

 It has been my experience reading history that it often repeats itself, although with supptle differences. 

 Interesting to see the NVS chart here as I bought some recently well before I read this post, and have it on my radar to buy more this year.

Today, we still don't have a clear winner but definitely the bears got a card up their sleeves for the bull come Monday.

GV - SP count mini 06.20.09

Enlarge

According to the map we drew before the open today and saw it folding to a T:

The best winner was the timid (patient) bear as well as the aggressive one who picked bears' scenario 2 and shorted between 923.71 and 929.90 (927.09 was today's high and the close 921.23). They can sleep little better over the weekend than the aggressive bull who took the bulls' scenario 2 and now little under water but still not stopped yet. The timid bull is safe because he didn't step in.

We opened higher, overshot the wedge, then from there it was downhill, broke the lower side of the wedge decisively to 915.80  and by the close we retested the broken wedge (green) and closed @ 921.23 under both the wedge and the channel upper side (black) of which both are resistance to the upside.

Check the annotation. The aggressive bulls who stepped in today must pay attention to these numbers. 915.62 - 907.94 - 903.78 Each break will push steam into the bears' heart and will put your positions in far dangerous place. Put your stops at these numbers but definitely you must take 903.78 as you last hope.

Good traders know how to make money but great traders know how to take a loss.

For the bears, the same stops still in effect (check here). No change and they can short any upside on Monday still as long as it doesn't exceed 929.90
