As for the stock market specifically:
Last week I described two off-beat indicators pointing in opposite directions. The winner was the contrarian reading of the American Association of Individual Investors which had bullishness at a very low level. That signaled excessive selling to me, and buying happened last week.
I have a correction to make from last week (good thing I don’t think this week’s letter will get much attention). I wrote the NYSE was on offense, when, in fact, it was on defense. The Optionable Bullish Percent indicator flipped to offense last week. The nature of the indicators, despite a likely flip very soon, requires a recommendation of WEALTH PRESERVATION.
Remember, Xs mean OFFENSE or wealth accumulation, while Os mean DEFENSE, or wealth preservation.
