Daily Market Analysis for 3 Nov 2011 Close

Welcome to Objectively Defined Non-Ambiguous Market Timing Analysis.

Market Timing Direction: LONG since Oct 27 Close. 

Analysis  Direction  Note
Market Breadth Pattern  Bullish Thursday was surprisingly a pretty strong day breadth-wise with many up trending stocks were considered accumulated (CA = 49, UA = 443) while only a small number of stocks were considered distributed (CD = 20, UD = 22). We have steady improvement of breadth statistics since Oct 28 drop. In fact, we have not seen any serious distribution since Oct 4 low. We maintain our Long position.

This system is at heart a trend following and exhaustion reversal system. Unless we see significant deterioration in breadth numbers, we will stay Long. This time we might not get an up trend, but this is what we are after.

However, we must be cognizant to the fact that we are now in a market heavily influenced by government action or inaction. This system will not work well when there are unexpected actions by government agencies. Why? Because the system essentially is piggy-backing market actions of large segments of market players (we buy when there is broad-based accumulation and sell when there is broad-based distribution, unless we see capitulations). If they themselves are surprised, then we are also adversely affected. Given the supposedly surprising events in Europe, the system might not perform well in the near future. Therefore, I suggest anyone following this system to reduce your exposure.

We are currently in a Strong market state. 

Primary Breadth Trend  Bullish The primary market breadth has turned bullish.
Monetary Conditions  Bullish Monetary base started to decline. However, short-term interest is still much lower than longer term interest rate. Thus, Interest Rate Pump factor continues to rise. Monetary policy is still extra easy.

Note: Any change from previous day summary is highlighted in blue.
