For Thursday January 02, 2014, We Recommend Investing in US Markets


Investment Recommendations:

We recently changed our investment recommendation.  It is time to invest in US stock markets.  Price inflation hedges should be held for the long term and remain a good idea as we expect price inflation to accelerate in 2014.  Avoid all bonds.

Technical Comments:

The S&P 500 advanced 0.4% on Tuesday with volume lighter than Monday and below the 30 day moving average.  Last Friday and Monday were technically strong-volume days when compared to the prior day, and each saw a very slight decline in the S&P 500 index.  Our pattern detection software did not classify those days as strong-volume down-days because volume was so low compared to the average volume.  Tuesday was a light-volume up-day, and volumes remained light because of the holidays.  US markets are closed Wednesday for the New Year’s holiday.  If the S&P 500 were to decline about 44 points on Thursday (-2.4%) our stop loss algorithm could trigger a change in our market forecast to an uncertain trend.
