MarketMood Tuesday: Government Spotlight

Where We've Been: Monday's mood pattern says to be "on alert" for anything today.  MMI was looking up (above open) after a down open.  The market sure tried, but gave out near end of day.  MM MACD turned from sell to neutral at today's open. Where We're Heading: Monday's mood pattern shows a government or legal focus for tomorrow (U.S. senate hearings?).   MM Trend Trader continues to maintain at "buy" in both the main signal and higher probability signal, however bears are in charge for the near term until the SP 500 can regain 3901.

MarketMood Morning Notes - Market Analysis for Nov 9th, 2020

October Surprises, Guaranteed - Market Analysis for Sep 28th, 2020

What if I told you that there are currently detectable October surprises in store for the American people and perhaps the world at large?  With September still to be completed, this is as clear today as an “Unprecedented Global Crisis” was detectable for February and March of this year even as 2019 was yet finishing up and Covid-19 still unheard of.

A New Look at the Big Picture

In this long diagonal that has been going on just about foreverit seems, MMI has been severely handicapped not being able to calculate inversions or "flips" ahead of time in the usual manner. This often leads to only being able to clearly confirm or refute a potentialinversion in hind sight which is not just annoying, but is extremely unhelpful in plotting a course to where things are likely going. With 20/20 hindsight, I can now confidently say that there was no clear flip in July, and there was especially no clear flip from up to down. With that as fact, I must rework my big picture outlook. Below is the monthly chart I had been working with.
