It’s Stock Market Panic Time!

The Nikkei 225 Index is in the news this morning. It declines to 16085.44 in their overnight session. That’s right. It is down 918.86 points. This puts it just above its Head & Shoulders neckline. There’s a lot more to come should the neckline be broken.

The futures are down 1129.50, or 15871.50. ZeroHedge reports, “With China offline for the rest of the week, global markets have found a new Asian bogeyman in the face of Japan which as reported last night saw its markets crash, and the Yen soar, showing that less than 2 weeks after the BOJ unveiled NIRP, yet another central bank has lost control.”

WMD – Weapons of Mass Destruction

“WMD” also is “Wasteful Monetary Devastation.”

WASTEFUL:  We all know that governments spend money in wasteful ways and compensate with higher taxes, deficits, huge debt, “printed currencies” and inflation.  “Bridges to nowhere,” various wars, and “giveaways” benefit a few at the expense of many.

MONETARY:  Printing and digitally creating many trillions of dollars, euros, yen, or pounds may temporarily bail out banks and governments but in the big picture they destroy capital and weaken the economies of the nations which are deluding themselves.

One Chart Depicts Economic Recovery 100% Fiction

Anything I’ve ever done that ultimately was worthwhile… initially scared me to death.
Betty Bender
They say a picture is worth a thousand words and this chart is probably worth a lot more.  It illustrates how the BLS has been lying through its teeth over the past seven years. Then again anyone with a grain of common sense could figure out that the retarded methodology the BLS employs is bound to create the illusion that all is well. They purposely discount individuals that have stopped looking for work in coming up with their unemployment numbers. Hence, the 5% figure is not an accurate reflection of the landscape. The chart below provides a more realistic view of the unemployed in the U.S and in some areas we believe that the numbers could be more than 30%

Buy or Sell: EUR/USD Retests Point of Breakout

EUR/USD broke higher last week on expanding volume and shrinking SSI reading. See the higher probability bullish and bearish Elliott Wave pattern we are watching.

Talking Points

-Sentiment shifts towards more sellers (bullish signal)

-Volume expands on the breakout, though On Balance Volume is not above the December 2015 highs (mixed signal)

1.08 is the key level to the bullish Elliott Wave pattern

The break higher last week was significant for the technical pattern on EUR/USD. The break above 1.1087 now solidifies a 3 wave move from August 24, 2015 to December 3, 2015. For those familiar with Elliott Wave analysis, 3 wave moves are corrective moves and suggest a future retracement. Below, we will inspect more closely the favored bullish pattern and favored bearish pattern including levels to watch out for.

As we write, we are favoring the bullish pattern as Sentiment has shifted more deeply towards the bears. You can see on the chart below how the red area chart has shifted to lower levels (purple boxes) as the number of traders positioned on the short side has grown (orange circle). At the time of this writing, SSI is at -1.76. Sentiment is a contrarian signal that suggests the higher probability move is for more gains.

(See how traders are positioned with our live SSI feed.)

Buy or Sell: EUR/USD Retests Point of Breakout

Volume in EUR/USD is more mixed. The On Balance Volume indicator has only risen to levels that coincided with the early December 2015 high. This is coming at a time when price has clearly broken higher. Fortunately, the price break higher did occur on expanding volume. Ideally, we would like to see the OBV expand to new highs as price is making new monthly highs. If the bullish pattern is at play, we should see volume continue to expand on additional price moves higher.
