Trading a true currency collapse is a rare opportunity. Most market participants are familiar with the story of George Soros and his ride to prominence on the back of the collapse of the British Pound. Is it possible that a similar opportunity may present itself soon in the form of a collapse of…Continue

The market got spooked by the collapse of a minor brokerage firm, MF Global. Perhaps an appropriate Halloween reaction of -2.5% occurred as the firm's demise was at least partially linked to losses stemming from the European debt crisis. Just two sessions earlier, markets spiked on news that a deal had been struck on Greek debt and the "recapitalization" (bailout) of European banks. At this time all of that spike move has been given back. News that Greece is planning a referendum on its…Continue

The crash which I called for in my June reports came a month later than expected and the wave count has developed very much as anticipated at that time. In my favored count, SPX is nearing the end of its initial A wave decline of a large 3 part E wave which should end the bear market.
Here's my long term monthly SPX chart:…Continue

Brazil's Bovespa stock market index closed at fresh lows today. It's rally off the early July low was far weaker than that of most other major world markets. A look at the chart shows that a significant level of support going back to October of 2009 was violated in today's selloff.
In fact, the index is just a day's trade away from taking out its May 2010 lows.…Continue

Last week SPX appeared to complete an abc sideways correction. By Friday the index was heading back towards its lows and ended the day and the week just above critical support at the confluence of the 200 EMA and the uptrend from March 2009. The setup is for a potential gap below this support zone on Monday, which could then trigger sell stops leading to a cascading decline.
Commodities continued to lead to the downside, with Crude breaking lower and the Agriculture and Grains…Continue

The video below reviews the current technical condition of the major world stock markets. In it I examine each index in terms of the relationship between price and the uptrends from March…Continue

I've been long SPX since the September 2010 bottom and an aggressive buyer on pullbacks. Today I exited all long trades and went to 100% cash and then even took on a small short position. My current analysis shows ample reason to conclude that stocks and commodities are in the early stages of a significant correction. Here's my SPX trading record for…Continue

A few times a year, I like to release the complete text of an edition of my BullBear Market Report.

The bearish conditions did not come to fruition and BullBear Traders were able to catch the exact bottom of the move after having lightened their positions at…Continue

Here's the Introduction to the latest BullBear Market Report:
In recent BullBear Market Reports I was able to successfully identify the apparent Wave 3 of (3) top at SPX 1344. I advised BullBear Trading members that I was taking 40% of my long position off the table and closing long positions in Nikkei as well as exiting short US Treasuries. I might have taken more of the position off but there was some doubt, until the Japan Panic hit, about the degree of the correction at…Continue
Here's the introduction to the latest BullBear Market Report:
The fear of a disruptive pan-Arabic revolution appears to have triggered a correction in world equities markets. Today’s high marked the B wave of an ABC corrective pattern and C down is now underway. My take at this time is that the downward correction is not yet over and a better buying opportunity lies ahead.…Continue
