The Fed has always followed the markets.

While many see the correction in the commodity market as the end of inflation, there are higher consumer prices on the way. The Fed will follow the rates going higher.
On the equity markets

I have found that when my good friends at EWI retreat from a primary call to a second scenario it is the alternate call that it pays to be contrary. They are one of the most followed market publications in the industry and provide mass amounts of liquidity.

Volatility Reports 7/22/22

CT’s volatility model has reached another extreme with today’s open, a TE#3.

The pro-directional move based on the previous TE#2 has run its course with an S-T advance. Along with the trend change expected on or about July 21 +/- the fresh TE#3 calling the S-T trend old, feeble, and due for a change supports a reversal of the uptrend here.

Monday I pointed out that “Today’s open – from an EWT point of view has met minimum expectations for the counter-trend.”  Based on the same method, the price structure has traced out a maximum move as of the recent highs.

The previous scenario of the cycle lows inverting was wrong, yet at some point for the downtrend to become pro-directional, a COT low needs to be taken out and the full cycle from high to low to be one-way traffic. Hence based on the 6 1/2 week cycle (45 days) a low is projected for late August to early September, which fits the overall scenario outlined by MarketMap™ -2022 Scenario Planner in January.

Volatility Reports 7/18/22

Today’s close filled the gap open, that is an old fashion Larry William’s sell signal. The closing of the gap on the weekly bar after a Monday gap open on Monday’s close is a reversal signal.

Couple that simple and easy sell signal is the following posted in Contrary Thinker’s membership group on LinkedIn.

A major cycle is having an encore topping process how. The featured chart below is a helpful reference.

The same time cycle hit with high tides cycles in January / February 2022 along with astrological trigger events between Mars and Uranus. this is not a Sunday newspaper astrology insert next to the comics, telling you how your week is going to be for your Sun sign. It is about earmarking calendar anniversary dates that repeat.

The span of the cycle is shaded in blue.

What is extremely noteworthy is the same cycle made a top in late 1999 / early 2000. A period many are drawing comparisons to, which is fine and valid. I have tied into that major top based also on the date of the ATHs are the same as the time window for the Great Bull Market’s high pivot 1/4/22 based on the Dow.

Contrary Thinker sees the market’s scenario more in line with the 60-year cycle panic of 1962, which also had its ATH peak in the same time window as the 2022 window.

The bottom line sustains, sells rallies, and uses bear market tactics on rallies. On the long side is the inflation macro. I have a number of requests for more insights into that major area, which will happen in the near term.

For our new members that like the Gold and Silver market, I will provide more details but for now, there is nothing pro-directional on the horizon until a key low pivot in mid to late August.

In the last issues of “MarketMap™ 2022,” I pointed out that time analysis (cycles) and TEM supported

“a high ROC trend and that (context) have been behind the market since the minor low on 7/5/22.” and “what the market has shown thus far, I would view it as disappointing.”

If I was a bull, which I am not.

I went on to say that “A reversal here…should lead to a decline that does not stop at the July 18 COT and all hell will break lower into the August 22 COT.”

I discussed what most advisors, managers, and traders miss because they think in terms of “absolutes” and if the signals are not “pitch perfect” they are not up to snuff.”

What they are missing is to see the “failure” as the signal of the reversal, how else can there be trends, unless they break the current wave of cycles or oscillations.

That is precisely what we are witnessing here, from the mid-June low the market is locked in a trading cycle, a range. After a trend ranges are frustrating to most traders.

That brings me to the intent of my Volatility Model the Technical Event Matrix. It provides leading signals on these market conditions. The chart for all four majors was posted here last week and it still says “play the break!”

In other words, the background (tension) behind the market will sustain a high rate of change trend once the primary trend takes hold again.

Today’s open – from an EWT point of view has met minimum expectations for the counter-trend.
