Tulip Mania – Part 4 – Dash

- - DASH - THE ONE THAT'S STILL IN THE (MAINSTREAM) DARK A couple of weeks ago, I spoke to a colleague of mine, an expert on cryptocurrencies and one of the really early ones on board, and I asked him which cryptocurrency he favors.  He was clear on that one, Dash has

S&P500 vs VIX – Bearish vs Bullish Divergence

      S&P500 vs VIX The S&P500 is trending near long term resistance line (blue) @ 2440, forming Higher Highs, while the 14 day RSI is not able to keep up the same pace, forming Lower Highs so far. This is called Bearish Divergence and often shows an overshoot in price, that will

S&P500 – Cycle Dates June 2017

    - THE RELEVANCE OF 7(0)  Based on my own research, it seems that the S&P500 is trending based on an internal cycle of 7(0) calendar days. My research shows that over the past 17 years, the 7, 21, 35, 70, 140 and 280 day cycle are more likely to signal a change in

Bitcoin – Tulip Mania Part 2

  May 19, I dedicated an article to Cryptocurrencies (read here) and that in my view, it was going 2 fast 2 furious, showing much resemblance with the price pattern of tulips during the 17th century. In the meantime, Bitcoin (and all other cryptocurrencies) reached Higher Highs and Bitcoin touched $2800,

The Dow Theory – Part 2

  Start your own Fund and earn money managing a Portfolio!  This post is a follow up on the post I wrote about the Dow Theory. If you haven't read that one yet, then I advice you to read that first (here) before you continue this story.  As I mentioned in that post: "The Sell

DAX – Flag Pattern

    While the US markets form Higher Highs and record closes, the European markets do not follow (yet). For example, the DAX is forming Lower Highs and Lower Lows since the most recent 70 day cycle (May 8, click here).  So investors (or should I say, the Plunge Protection Teams) are pulling

Bitcoin and Ethereum – Tulip Mania?

  There's a more recent update on Cryptocurrencies available, click here for Bitcoin - Tulip Mania Part 2.  - In this post I would like to share my view on two Cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum. The last time I shared my view on Bitcoin and Ethereum, mid March, both currencies crashed and I

Oil – Is $41 in the cards for June?

  The last time I shared my view on Oil, I explained why I sold the $49-$52 area for a Target of $44-$45, which was reached a lot quicker than I expected though. Unlike stocks, where it's taking an eternity to form a short term High in the S&P500 and Dow Jones

Nasdaq100 – Monthly Trendline @ 5700

      The Nasdaq100 reached the long term Monthly Trend Line @5700 area which should act as strong resistance. Based on my belief of a collapse of the Government Bond market (interest rates up, sell bonds), I think this resistance is only here to be broken to the upside as the flight to

The last time this happened, the VIX surged 40%

Hi all,

In this post I would like to share my current view on the markets and in particular the S&P500 and VIX.

For the S&P500, there’s an important cycle time window coming up, that starts May 8 and could signal a High to be formed this week. That matches the pattern that I see in VIX (the rounding bottom) and if that pattern repeats again, we could be in for a VIX of at least 14 and maybe even 17/18 over the next couple of weeks.

Feel free to ask questions if you have any.

Enjoy your weekend!
