Turov and the Trader’s Wire Market Opinion for Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Turov and the Trader’s Wire Market Opinion for Wednesday, December 6, 2017

by Daniel Turov

The SPX declined 9.87 points yesterday to close at 2629.57.  It was the third consecutive decline for the SPX.  TOT daily traders were on the sidelines for the session.  (Advertisement: Turov on Overnight Possibilities traders were long the TLT ETF for a .56% gain.)
Since initiation of the Turov on Timing service on September 30, 1993, our daily trader recommendations have gained 17518.17 cumulative SPX points, compared to a gain of 2170.64 points in the index itself over the same period.  That’s a ratio of 8.07 to one.  (Please note that any day in which the daily trader recommendation fails to outperform the SPX by at least a ratio of +8.07 to one, since that’s the ratio of outperformance already achieved, that ratio will decline.)
(The commentary in this paragraph last updated August 1, 2017) The super long term perspective (a prediction, not a forecast!) for the stock market remains bearish (within the context of a medium term bull market).  I believe that, adjusted for REAL inflation (not the funny numbers the Social Security Administration uses) the stock market may be lower in real dollars in 2020 than it was in 2000, although higher in nominal dollars.  For a long time, I’ve been saying, “I also expect that our new 2016-elected President will have some very serious problems during his/her single term in office.”  That belief stands, and we see it happening already.
(The commentary in this paragraph last updated November 6, 2017) The Intermediate Term model remains bullish.  The odds favor the market drifting higher UNTIL something bad and unexpected occurs – and that can be tomorrow or three years from now.  There have been LOTS of reasons for the market to decline over recent months, but it has remained stoically resistant to declining.  I would much rather be bearish than bullish — because the market seems to be significantly overvalued — but the model disagrees (primarily as a result of continuing and historically low interest rates).
The daily model is bullish today, and it is backed up by bullish readings in all four of the major indices.  However, because of a Consumers Report article released late Tuesday concluding that IPhone X is inferior to Samsung’s new phones, Apple and Nasdaq may open lower.  That’s good if it enables us to go long at a lower price.
TOT daily traders are advised to go 300% long at SPX 2632 stop (which I don’t believe will be reached until lower prices are reached first.  If the SPX declines to 2628 before reaching 2632, lower the entry buy stop to SPX 2630.  And for each additional 2 point decline, if it occurs, lower the stop by an equivalent 2 points.  Once long, use a 1% protective sell stop on the position.
