Trump Makes The US Stock Market Great Again

By: Clive Maund

 -- Published: Thursday, 1 December 2016 | Print  | Disqus 

The broad US stockmarket actually looks better overall than it has done for several years, which may come as a surprise considering it has been in a bullmarket since as far back as early 2009. On the 10-year chart for the S&P500 index we can see that a potential top area developed from early 2015 through the middle of this year, which has now been aborted by recent gains that have seen it break clear above resistance at earlier highs. This index remains within the big parallel channel that started to form back in 2010 – 2011 and appears to have its sights set on a run to the upper boundary of the channel again, which will result in BIG gains from the current level. Whilst we can speculate about the fundamental reason or reasons for such a move – a Trump spending spree, hot money flowing out of embattled Europe and possibly the Mid-East and Japan into the US, and helicopter money, such pondering is largely a waste of time – the chart says the market is set to advance and quite a lot, and that’s what matters. This is a big change from several months back or even several weeks back, when it looked toppy and vulnerable.

The 4-year chart enables us to see how the market gradually rounded over beneath a giant Dome pattern, but then broke clear above it in the Spring of this year. Observe how, after this happened, and it advanced away from the Dome, it then dropped right back to test support at the Dome boundary before advancing again. This was a very deceptive move, given that it looked like it had topped out at the resistance at the highs, and thus was a buying opportunity that many missed out on. Like Russian dolls, a Dome pattern of lesser magnitude then formed during this year, which involved the market breaking out to new highs in the Summer before this Dome boundary forced it back down again, but Trump’s unexpected victory caused this Dome to abort too, and after its recent sharp advance the market is now “in the clear”, having risen well above the considerable zone of congestion approaching the 2015 highs.

On the 1-year chart we can see how the market was being forced lower by the Dome pattern that developed this year, but suddenly broke out of it on the Trump victory on strong volume, which was a bullish development, and following the breakout it has continued to push higher, breaking its Summer highs at the top of the Dome as moving averages swing into bullish alignment.

On the 3-month chart we can see recent action in detail and how jitters ahead of the election caused the market to drop sharply, until a bullish “inverted hammer” right at the 200-day moving average heralded a reversal, which occurred on the Trump victory when a gap up into a giant white candle signaled the birth of a new uptrend. After rising almost vertically for a few days, a move which punctured the Dome boundary, the market settled into a more orderly, if still steep uptrend. Now it is getting overbought on various oscillators so it would not be surprising to see it break down from this uptrend to enter a period of consolidation or reaction, although any reaction is likely to be minor before the larger uptrend resumes.

Conclusion: the market appears to be starting out on another major upleg within the giant parallel uptrend channel shown on the 10-year chart above, on which you will also find a prospective target for this uptrend, that is a long way above current levels. If this interpretation is correct, any short-term reaction will present a buying opportunity.
