The most compelling thing I can say about the relentless rally going on for the past 11 days is it’s always hard to call a pause, let alone at top, in a bull market.
That said, the sometimes wild and crazy 3x-leveraged VIX ETF, UVXY, has declined 11 days in a row. What dose that matter? Doesn’t UVXY go down all the time? Pretty much, especially for the past five years. But this many days? Well…in the past five years UVXY has gone down 11 consecutive days only once before.
It has not gone down 12.
After 11 days down last time, it bounced 54% in the following 5 days. What a week this could be for the bears!
In the meantime, two of three of my end-of-the-day signals are on sells and flat. The third signal is volatility, still on a buy but after these 11 days stretched so thin it could snap any day, and minute…explosively.
SWING TRADING SIGNALS:
PRICE: Positive. Long (Trade Day 10).
SHORT-TERM BREADTH: Negative. Flat (Day 2).
VOLATILITY: Positive, Long (Day 3).
LONG-TERM BREADTH: Positive (Day 8).
CNN MONEY’S FEAR AND GREED INDEX: (73, falling still at greed level).
NIFTY-50 STOCK LIST: 14 Buys, falling; 7 Overbought, 5 Oversold, 0 new buys today, 13 new sells.
The rally results so far (10 full days from the open of 7/10):
TQQQ up 13.7 percent.
XIV up 15.8 percent.
UPRO up 5.6 percent.
TNA up 5.1 percent.
Three of the ETFs backed off a bit Friday, but the advance in XIV managed to move the net gain up from 10.2 percent to 10.4 percent as marked by the Price buy signal on the open of 7/10).
