Market Timing signals
The Market Timing system issued a 99-1 up signal on 3-10-20, the chart below shows the signal. The Phase indicator changing direction in the direction of the signal (moving down then moves up) provides confirmation market Timing signals. IN this case that didn’t happen.
Another up signal 99-1 fired on 3-24-20 and this time the phase turned up the same day and confirmed the signal.
Here are 3 of the bullish rules that fired to create this high up signal
- The 21 day stochastic has advanced and crossed the 20% line and the price phase indicator is also increasing. In this weakly downtrending market this is taken as a strong bullish signal suggesting an increase in prices.
- Volume accumulation percentage is increasing and the 21 day stochastic has moved above the 20% line. In this downtrending market, this is taken as a strong bullish signal that could be followed by an upward price movement.
- The price phase indicator is negative but volume accumulation has started to advance. This is a non-conformation that, regardless of the type of market, is a bullish signal which usually results in an upward movement of the market.
The counter trend AI system that generates these signals can be early in their firing. While the market moved up 2000 a nice move in most markets, in prior trading environments this would have taken a number of weeks, in our current volatility the market moved from the up signal in 2 days.
