Why We’re Specializing in Commodities Over Equities | Mish’s Market Minute

On Tuesday, the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ) outperformed the opposite indexes, ending the day +1.20%, whereas different main indices closed roughly flat on the day.

From the momentum aspect, our Actual Movement (RM) indicator is flirting with the decrease band. This may be seen circled within the above chart. If QQQ can clear the band, this could possibly be a setup for a imply reversion kind of commerce.

Whereas this does current a chance from an oversold foundation, the subsequent drawback is overhead resistance in a down-trending market. We have now already seen how simply the market can try a rally, solely to flip and break decrease the subsequent day. With a lot overhead resistance, taking lengthy trades in equities is particularly dangerous. Subsequently, we plan to give attention to commodities and put most equities on the again burner.

Two commodities we’re at the moment watching are sugar (CANE) and gold (GLD). Every is sitting on assist from the 200-day shifting common. Nonetheless, merely holding assist is just not an amazing motive to take a commerce; they should present they’re able to trending upwards or present a correct reversal chart sample.

Once more, we will take a look at the momentum indicator for alerts. In CANE, RM is nearing the decrease band. If the band is examined/damaged, we might search for RM to re-enter the band for an additional imply reversion commerce. Then again, GLD has not solely damaged the band, but additionally damaged by way of the 200-MA on RM. If GLD can maintain the 200-DMA in worth, we will look ahead to RM to clear its 200-MA to verify that worth and RM agree.

Whereas these could be nice symbols to commerce, timing our entries in a risky market makes all of the distinction.
