Although getting pinpoint precision with any indicator is impossible, when these oscillators move to extremes they inform you that you’re on borrowed time and that a reversal is immanent. The last 3 cycles / signals dating back to the September timeframe have been spot on. As I’ve said before, These oscillators stand undefeated. Remaining long when overbought or short when oversold is a great way to get your face ripped off…..it’s just a question of when, not if. Here we see a fast move underway to go from oversold toward overbought.
The Folly of Narratives
Have you noticed how quickly the narrative(s) are morphing as price rapidly changes? Last week the massive “blue wave” was the ticket because unrestrained fiscal stimulus would flood the economy and markets with liquidity and thus lift asset prices. As the election results dribbled in and stocks raced higher, now, divided government is great. Now those reckless democrats will be checked by the Republican Senate. No massive stimulus, no massive tax hikes, no green new deal. Just the latest example of headlines and narratives filling in an around price.
So, when do “Green Energy” Companies start buying Oil companies?
In Canada green energy giant Brookfield’s market cap now exceeds that of Suncor, Canada’s largest oil company. Here in the US, NextEra’s market cap now exceeds that of ExxonMobil. Two fun factoids that were unthinkable just a couple of years ago. You may think it an oxymoron for a green energy company to buy an oil company but remember, these companies are in the energy business to make money, not for altruistic reasons. How hard would it be to sell the idea that “We’re buying an oil company in order to carbon -neutralize it” In the era in which we live, I think if any of these big energy playas put their mind to it, they can sell anything. The cost of capital is as close to zero as its ever been.
Charts of Interest
KEYS – KeySight.
Love this long-term set up on $KEYS after a year’s worth of consolidation below $110. Earnings Nov 18. Trader’s can either get long Nov calls now and shoot for a pre-earnings run. , or wait until earnings clears and pick it up after the event. The measured move should carry price above $140 if the breakout holds
SPY 2 hour
Watch for a gap entry at $349. A break below would first target $346 with a full gap fill at $344. A nice $5 trade if you can catch it.
SPY 30 min
QQQ 2 hour
Same idea here as SPY. $292 is the entry to a $5 wide gap that is open to $287.
QQQ 30 min
IWM 2 hour
A different set up here. Chart remains unquestionably bullish above $164. Although you probably would not want to sit through a pull back to $160, anything above $160 keeps the chart bullish and would offer a nice objective long entry. Prices falling below $160 would open the door to more selling.
