Long Term Market Analysis: Bulls need a strong countertrend

Drizzt: long term market analysis is a series once or twice a month where we take a look at longer term trends in the market to get our bearings right on the general direction of where market prices is going.

S&P 500 Monthly

STI Monthly

I will try to keep this short as I don’t see anything different on the monthly charts. On the S&P 500, we lost 7.2% this month. 6 and 10 month EMA made a clean cut through the only saving grace is that the PMO have not indicated a cross over.

It is almost the same for the STI except that the PMO had a cross over.

For the bulls to still make this a correction, we need a strong rally in October, which is traditionally a good month for the bears.

Note, in 2010 we have something similar to this which we thought it’s a turn signal. On the PMO on the S&P 500, there was not a cross over. The PMO didn’t even registered this on the STI.

In the past 20 years we have not seen a point where the PMO cuts the 10 month EMA and then got slingshot upwards. The closes was in 2006, which spark off a great run up.

It doesn’t look very good for the bulls. I kept hearing good experts calling an end to this but the charts are all disagreeing with them.

Your STI chart is great! Notice you use to do the charting. Any other more common chart sources that can do PMO indicator? EMA is easy to find but PMO don't seem so.

Jeff, there are many charts on individual US companies using PMO indicators but i think u have to trade US stocks and other indicators extensively to use them
