Stick with the uptrend. It is supported
by rising CLosing Powers for the major market
ETFs, A/D Lines and Peerless.
Look at how strong foreign ETFs are. This
is a direct result of the falling Dollar
and the Fed's low interest rate policies.
Foreign ETFs with high current Accumulation
levels (IP21) above .41 comprise 4 of the
top 6 ETFs. They are EWO, INP. PGJ and
CEE. High IP21 is one of the most important
factors to use in screening stocks to buy.
Foreign ETFs keep running to new highs.
Bernanke's weak Low Interest Rate/
Weak Dollar policies are clearly causing a lot
of big money to leave the US or go into
precious metals' stocks. These factors do
not help reduce unemployment in the US.
To do that the FED will need to make the Dollar
fall much further, so that American
exports become competitive. It is this
prospect plus the normal "Performance" rush into a
new hyperbolic speculative sector that makes
gold and silver still look very bullish.
Once this genie is out of the bottle, it cannot
be quickly or easily stopped.
Our General Gold/Silver made a new high

were the day's biggest gainers. Silver's breakout above
21 to a 29 year high was accompanied by high
Accumulation. The Accumulation Index
was not quite as high as in the second half of
1979 as silver began its dramatic 6 month rise
from 8 to 48, but it did reach the +.46 levels
I have set out as a sign of "insider buying".
Further nelow are the perpetual contracts for
Silver 1979-1980, Silver 2010 and Gold 2010.
Note the huge bulge of Accumulation in the
perpetual contract of Gold at its bottom in 2010.
In both the SIlver cases it was the huge
vertical bulge of Accumulation that was the key to
spoting the start of the moves in 1979 and
2010. A long period of high (blue) Accumulation
was not present in 1979 or 2010. Gold's
Perpetual Commodity contract showed showed a
huge bulge of Accumulation right at the bottom.
The AI/200 level back in February and
March 2010 were not particularly noteworthy.
Gold Stocks to Buy
If we accept the premise that Gold and Silver
are in a major bull market that may last
another three or four months, at a minimum and
that is what the lesson of Silver in
1979-1980 suggests is a reasonable assumption,
then the Silver and Gold charts below
would also suggest that very high levels of
Accumulation are good ways of picking
the best Gold and Silver stocks.
TigerSoft gives us a nummber of ways of ranking
a universe of stocks like we see
in our current download of 71 gold and silver
stocks, ETFs and perpetual contracts.
Using simply the Tiger's "Most
Bullish" Power Ranking, we would select TRE, CUM-T,
GORO and Gold (GLD).
The detailed survey below concludes that we
should also buy TGB. Below is the chart of
TGB. We especially like fresh new highs
on red high volume which show current
Accumulation Index readings above +.40.
Interestingly, TGB does not show up among the
top "Bullish" stocks because its
AI/200 score is only 132. I would discount completely
the red optimized Stochastic Sell because of
the breakout and very high Accumulation.
Professionals have not been buyers, judging
from how the blue CLosing Power
has lagged, but they are clearly getting aboard

the current rally began, from the

If true, this principle should work well again.

Big Advances by Silver and Gold
10/12/2010 PEERLESS REMAINS ON A BUY.
The NASDAQ jumped nicely up today. The ratio of
new highs to new lows
on the NYSE was 99 to 1. The
NASDAQ's is still a bullish 72 to 16. Having a good
number of new highs means that breakouts are
extending their gains. This
keeps the momentum players busy with the long side.
I certainly do not want
them to capture the downside as they did in 2008.
The CLosing Power's trend
for the QQQQ reflects much of their sentiment.
In the chart below, you can
see that the blue Closing Power has not confirmed the
recovery high. The statistics
on the right show that while prices are making a
65-day high, the 65day CP% is
only 84.5%. CP is only 84.5% of the way up from
its 65-day low to its high. This
yields a CP%vs Pr% bearish divergence of 15.5%.
A trend-break in the rising
CP is more reliably bearish after a such a divergence
The good news is that both the Public and
Professionals are pushing prices
higher. This often yields very good returns
until the Professionals change their
minds and shift to net selling.
True, the DJI is losing momentum. But this is
not enough to get me to predict a 5% decline,
though, since all the Closing Powers are still
rising along with Openings.
The low interest rates that have fueled the September
rally may be in jeopardy.
A problem is developing with Bernanke's low interest
rates. The weak Dollar is
contributing, to a degree, to the sharp rise in food
commodities. Exports of
wheat and corn are made easier. Foes of
Bernanke's low interest rate policies
will use these numbers to show the costliness of
inflation. He will be hard pressed
to show that increased manufacturing exports
occasioned by the weak Dollar
have, so far, created enough new jobs to outweigh the
costs to consumers in
high food and fuel prices. Professionals may
see that the FED could become divided
if these price trends continue and gather steam,
especially if they start to make oil
prices rise as they did in th first half of 2008.
Bernanke's low interest rate policies
may lose critical support and he might even be
As a result, the Rates on the 10-Year Treasuries may
be bottoming. The Tiger CLosing
Power (CP) did not confirm the recent decline to new
lows. CP was enough off its 65-day
lows as Treasury interest rates made a new low to
bring a series of new Buy B7s. This
has not stopped the rises in
Gold and Silver. The highest Accumulation Gold and Silver
continue to advance or hold up best.
Look at the jump in low priced BULM
yesterday. Will KRY be next?
At this stage, short-term traders should get ready
for some blow-off upwards moves
in stocks that have flat topped hesitation patterns
following big run-ups if they
breakout above their flat tops. See the charts
of VRNT and TRE.
Traders Should Get Ready To Buy Breakouts
in Very Strong Stocks with Flat Tops.
Buying TRE and VRNT when prices surpass the recent highs
has a very good
chance to bring a steep rise that comes close to matching
the gains that preceeded

The DJI is running into the heavier resistance area above
11000. Internals are still
quite positive. The Closing Powers for the ETFs have
not broken their uptrends.
At this point in October, we can start to see some upside
daylight and stop worrying
about an October collapse. The next three trading
days after October 11th have fallen
51.3% of the time, but the DJI is higher a month from now
59% of the time going back
to 1965. If there is a retreat, look for the decline
to stop at the DJIA's 65-day ma now at 10500.
A break in the uptrending SPY Closing Power should set off
a 4% decline to 112 and
the 65-dma. That CP trendbreak should not be assumed.
We just have to wait for it
The boost given the market by the weak Dollar may disappear
for a few days.
The Dollar's Closing Power broke its steep down-trendline.
Food prices popped upwards
today. That will put more pressure on Bernanke
to consider the inflationary
consequences of his low interest rate policy.
Corn rose 5% today. It has risen from
a low of 325 in June to 556 now. Live cattle
jumped 3.3% today. But they did close
at their lows. Gold is weaker this morning.
The bigger Gold Stocks have been pulling
back even as Gold rose. So far, the decline in
NEM, for example is within normal
parameters. See the Blog I wrote tonight about Gold Stocks' Moving Out of Step
itself. We will want to start working with Relative Strength bands. (Some
more experimenting with these bands is needed, before
the software is released for
The DJI-30 stocks look firm with the exception of
BAC. IBM, up +.81, continues to give
its heavily weighted strength to the DJIA. The
higher priced DJI stocks are the leaders.
This is what often propels the market towards
the end of a surge. But until we see
divergences between prices and breadth, I think
we have to bet on higher prices.
Momentum traders can still find many more
strong stocks than weak stocks to look at .
There were 191 MAXCP stocks, i.e. Closing Power
made 12 month highs in last two days
and 37 MINCP stocks, that had Closing Power
make new lows... The ratio of NASDAQ
new highs to new lows is 59 to 15, much less
than the 121 to 1 ratio on the NYSE,
but enough to show the direction is still
probably up. The Bullish list from MAXCP holds
the same stocks mentioned frequently: GAS, EPD,
TUR 75.46 + 1.01 (ETF for Turkey).
TTM 27.23 +.54 (Tata Motors), NXTM and IFN and
IIF - India Funds. I am still weighting
for VRNT to breakout past its flat resistance
at 31.6. ABV - 133.33 +.67 and
a new stock JSM 20.45 which profits from
BAC remains a good short sale. Mounting
criticism of big banks for fraudulently
selling mortgages without proper paper work
will, no doubt, grow bigger as the Election
nears. PHM also shows significant red

down the road. But with real
unemployment 17% and no plausible, much less practical,
alternative from either political
party, I don't see what will change the FED until after the
Election. Meanwhile, enjoy the ride.
SPY does show an automatic red Sell signal. The
Closing Power has not confirmed
the recent advance. That makes any clear break in the
uptrend-line of SPY's Closing Power
a reliable short-term Sell. Another
relevant Closing Power principle is to become wary
when a Closing Power uptrend is broken in stocks or ETFs
that have both Opening and
Closing Power rising and are over-extended. Watch SPY
closely. A break in its CP uptrend
would likely bring a decline to its rising 65-day ma.
I do find encouragement when looking
at the new TigerSoft SPY chart. It shows that
Professionals' buying after the Opening
is 2.7 times more important than the gains occurring
overnight at the Openings.
Some chartists point out the inverted head and shoulders
pattern in the SP-500 that
has been completed. The height of the pattern before
the breakout usually tells you
the minimum number of points upwards prices can run
once the necklne resistance is
exceeded. If true, we should expect the SP-500 to
make a new high above its 1220 April
peak. Such patterns usually see a big increase in
volume. Technicians now must
accept that a lot of volume in index Stocks is occurring
off the NYSE, which makes
our SP-500 charts suspect.
Inverted Head/Shoulders in SP-500
More Bullish Stocks Than Bearish Looking Ones.
This is clearly a market of stocks. Foreign ETFs and Gold stocks
are clearly favored
by the weak Dollar brought on by low interest rates and the
FED's buying of Treasury bills.

and Very Low Interest Rates Should Prevent A Big Decline

The 10%+ rally since August 31 is starting to struggle.
for the second day. Even the precious metals were hit with profit-taking. The SPY
and DIA recovery highs were not
confirmed by the Closing Power making new highs.
That makes the uptrends of the CLosing Power lines more
important. A break in
in these CP uptrends would be bearish and further confirm
the red Sell signals on
these charts. A 4% decline would take DJIA back to
the expected support of its
rising 65-dma. The Closing Power for the QQQQ is downtrending already. Often
short-term tops develop when the DJI goes nearly flat for
five or six days in a row.
Let's see if it "flat-lines" a few more days, as
it did on 6/29/2009 when it produced
a Sell S8 which dropped the DJI back to the lower band.
The DJI has actually held up well given AXP's 4 point
decline this week as anti-trust
charges are levelled against it. CAT is the highest
AI/200 stock in the DJI and a
high priced DJI stock, thereby having relatively
heavy weighting. Its Closing Power
is only in a minor downtrend. CVX at 83.52 is another
heavily weighted stock in the
DJI. Both the Public and Professionals are
buying and there was an intense bulge
of Accumulation in it in August. These are
bullish signs and argue against a bigger decline..
The real strength in the DJI is coming from the
recent breakout in IBM. The November
calls we recommended are looking very good.
Professionals are heavy buyers. The
Public does not believe the rally. IBM at
138.72 has 10 times the weight in the DJI
of very weak BAC at 13.31. You can see how the
way the DJIA is weighted as well
as its makeup - defensive blue chips that pay
dividends - that allows it to keep on rallying
even as other indexes start to falter. Late in
an intermediate-term rally, the best
of the high priced DJIA stocks tend to do well.
IBM below has a minimum priced
target of 146, based on the width of its pattern
before the breakout (134-121 or 13)
added to the point of breakout (133).
Breadth is still bullish and we have no Peerless
sell. That suggests any decline
over the next two weeks will be shallow and
short-lived. Fighting the FED has
been unprofitable and frustrating for short sellers
of the major market indexes
for most of the last year and a half. I think
that we can safely predict the FED will do all
it can to hold the market up until the election is
past. The NYSE ratio of NYSE highs
to new lows Thursday was still a bullish 86 to 3.
The NASDAQ is not so bullish
but it is a solid 42 to 9. A way to see how
professionals judge the market now is
simply to compare the 112 stocks in the MAXCP list
tonight with the 53 in the
MAXCP - Bullish Stocks - IP21>.25:
EPD, TCLP, PGP, NXTM, VRNT, SJI, IGR, QPSA, AVF, OKS,
LCAPA, JSM, DEP, FFC, SNP, ELE
The highest current Accumulation Index stocks from
this list are VRNT and QPSA.
Readers will remember QPSA as that odd little stock
at $1.50 that has such ridiculously
high levels of Accumulation. Click here to see
its chart at the end of 2009.
QPSA is thin and on the pink sheets, so buy just a
little with limits. VRNT still looks very
good and is apt to be resistant to a general market
decline. Notice the new Buy B7s.
They show where Closing Power is much closer or at
its 65-day ma while price
is still lagging, but should play catch up and make
new highs. On the right side
of the charts, you see a value for "Strength Profess/Public". This shows how much
of the change in price over the last 65 days owes to
higher closes from openings
(Professional Closing Power) versus overnight changes
in price (Public Opening Power).
A rato higher than 2.0 shows Professionals are
A ratio under 1 shows the public is heavily in the
market. Openings are holding or
pushing prices up. At the top in 2000, March 24, the CP%-Pr% value was -.49.
At the end of the period shown in this chart
Professionals were bear and the Public
was Bullish, yet the "Strength Profess/Public" value was 6.4, which showed Professionals
were dominant and the CLosing Power downtrend should
be heeded. By contrast
at the end of December 1999, the "Strength Profess/Public" value was only .3. The
public (openings) accounted for 23.61 of the 30.6
points gain over the previous 65 days.
In this environment, it was best to play the rally
still on the long side, despite the Sell
S7 warnings. If this example here can be
generalized from, then we should respect
the uptrends of Silver (SLV)
now, where the the "Strength
Profess/Public" value is
also .3. Higher openings are likely to keep the
rallying going, though a break in the
Closing Power uptrend will cool the rally off some.
GLD is driven even more by higher
openings. Its "Strength Profess/Public" value is .1 Less than 10% of GLD's
occurs after the Openings. Foreigners and the
US public buying at the opening account
for 90% of the 13.86 points advance over the last
===> As long as the CLosing Power is rising, in a
stock dominated by Professionals and
showing heavy Accumulation, I think that we can be
bullish. The very high blue
Accumulation at the bottom shows (usually smart)
insider buying, prpsective
buying on future weakness as a cushion and a
tightening hold by insiders of the float
of the stock. The new TigerSoft is now available for subscribers to the Tiger ESP Page.

seem likely, because we have no Peerless Sell and because the

So far, the answer is not much. The real risk is that

So, Bernanke and FED continue aggessively to push up the
stock market by buying Treasury
bonds and forcing interest rates down to
new lows today. This especially boosts
and foreign ETFs. They are making new highs.
The FED policies certainly
give a chance for the Gold bugs to shout about "currency
debasing" and government
defaults. But, in truth, there is little doubt that if it
wanted to, the FED could quickly
boost the Dollar. The governments of Argentina and Weimar
Germany had long lost
that power at the time their currencies fell apart.
See my Blog about Argentina.

Argentina's Currency Collapse of 2002...
Watch for more exciting moves, especially from
those stocks that show intense
Accumulation and then make new highs. This comes about
because of how
traders focus on stocks that move the most, because of short
covering as new highs
are made and because advances are easier with stocks more tightly
held, a result of
recent intense Accumulation. See such Gold/Silver charts at this link and just below.

rates low. US demand
for oil is still not robust because of the weak economic climate.
On the other hand, the

It takes a while before
this upswing gets translated into higher prices at the grocery

become aware of this, there will be much more public and
political resistance to the

up until after the November election.

Bernanke reiterated for the upteenth time his determination
to keep interest
rates very low until such time as there is a broad economic
recovery in the US.
He should have added "or until such time as the
inflationary effects of a weak Dollar
create too much political headwind". The
Dollar continued to fall today, making foreign
and Gold stocks look very attractive.
The Dollar seems on its way
down 5 more points from 78, having completed its
head and shoulders pattern. Gold
and Silver are roaring upwards. Gold is in all-time
high territiory above all apparent resistance lines and
running freely. Silver has made
a 28 year high and has no real resistance until 25 is
reached. Both are recommended.
Using the Power Ranker's "BULLISH" screen
with Gold and Silver stocks over $4,
we get the following stocks for consideration:

The Peerless internal strength indicators remain
positive. This means the market is
probably far too strong to suffer a big October decline.
The clinched TigerSoft
short-term Sell signals do predict a decline, however. Watch
the CLosing Power downtrends now in SPY,
QQQQ and DIA. They need to be
in order for us to become short-term bullish.
Professional Selling has started in earnest. The CLosing Power uptrends
have been violated for SPY, DIA and QQQQ, thereby
"clinching" their current automatic
Sells. Except for precious metals and a few
stocks very much in the public eye like
APPL, the last few months' market has been dominated
by professionals. If they do change
their mind, and they are not known for loyalty to a
trend, then we are apt to see a decline
back to the rising 65-day ma in the DJI now at 46.
That would mean a 5% DJI decline.
Since Republicans are expected to do well in the
Congressional Elections, I would think
a rally into the Election Day on November 4th would
start from the next low.
Who Are The Buyers? How Much Do They Matter?
The Public has not been in the market
much. I say this because the Openings which are
much more likely to be traded by the public and
overseas investors than professionals
presently account for only 1.9 points in the DIA's
gain of 9.84 over the last 65 days, while
the trading from the Opening to the Close accounts
for 7.94 of the 9.84 rise. The last 3 months
show a significantly higher ratio of Professional
(post Opening) buying relative to the gain
in this time than their gain over the last year when
Professional buying amounted to
4.57 points in the DIA's gain, while Openings brought
5.56 points, more than half of the
whole gain. When Professionals are net buyers,
we usually stay bullish. But they
can switch sides quickly.
Clinched Sell Signals Using Breaks in Closing Power Uptrends
DIA is ETF for DJIA
16th, professionals have been net flat the DIA, while the Public has become
net buyers. That is now worrisome. The
Public is more apt to be wrong in cases like this
when both the Opening and CLosing Power have been
rising. That is why we counsel
Selling "Both Up" (rising Opening and
CLosing Power) stocks and ETFs when their
CLosing Power uptrends are broke, especially after a
See the DIA chart
below. The "B21"s show the "Both Up" condition. The "Both
Down" condition is shown by S21s. Right
now. Openings are showing a pattern of
being very much higher than the Closings the night
before. If this pattern continues,
we are apt to see higher openings and lower closings
until Professionals decide to
buy again. For now, we are short-term bearish.

Peerless Sell signal we cannot predict a decline even to the lower band.
The low interest rate environment should prevent a decline
of more than 5%, barring
unforeseen bearish international events. Food and
fuel prices are not rising so much
yet as to force the FED to change their policies.
Only the steepest NYSE A/D Line has
been violated. We did not see CP non-confirmations
for DIA, SPY or QQQQ.
WHAT TO DO?
Short-term traders should short DIA or
SPY. Take profits in stocks that have risen
more than 20% above support, especially if their steep
Closing Power uptrends
are violated and their AI/200 score is below 180.
Here are some of the "bearish"
MINCP (80) stocks tonight. They should make good
short sales as long as their Closing
Power is falling: MTC, CX, TNE,
CFFN, ALNY, CBEH and AMR (below).

Gold and Silver stocks in 2010 illustrate these principles.
Many Gold and Silver stocks made the biggest part of their moves overnight
this past year. But atfter after a

PEERLESS REMAINS ON A
BUY. The FED's Low Interest Policy Is Not Challenged
Yet by Rising Food or Oil Prices despite The Weak
Dollar. But Professionals Are Taking
Profits in DIA, SPY and QQQQ. We should expect
a minor 3%-4% retreat. See below
how the steep Closing Power uptrendline has been
violated, thereby clinching the
automatic red Sell. The red signals are based
on the best trading system our TigerSoft
program can quickly find from among 60 different
systems. It has gained 45.6% for
the last year buying and selling short. These
clinched signals offer tactics within
the extensively back-tested and intermediate-term
Peerless system's signals.
See how the head and shoulders pattern has been
bullishly aborted by the DJI'a
advance past 10750. The A/D Line for the
NYSE is still rising. Low interest rates
are working their bullish effect on the market,
even now 18 months after the
March 2009 bottom. The FED seems
determined to keep interest rates low, buying
if necessary, Treasury instruments with money
they can print. That has sent the Dollar
down below a bearish looking head and shoulders
pattern, neckline and using
classical technical analysis, sets up a target
near 72. Another drop of 8% by the
Dollar would certainly boost foreign ETFs, Gold and Silver. Most food commodities
are not looking strong enough to pose
inflationary pressures. That reduces the likelihood
of a coup within the FED against Bernanle's
leadersip. We will have to watch Crude Oil.
A move by USO to new highs might scare the FED
into reconsidering their policies.
That seems some time away, for now. So,
the Fed policies should continue and
keep the market from falling much this October,
even though we see clinched short-term
sell signals on the QQQQ,
SPY and DIA. The clinching has
occured because their
Closing Powers have broken their uptrends.
CLosing Power Divergence Signals
seen that most of the time and with most investent vehicles the trend
Power acts as a powerful predictor of future prices. Price changes due
weak openings tend to be deceptive. We can measure the degree to
Closing Power is bullishly or bearishly diverging from price using the
CP Divergence = CP% - Pr% for N
where N = a time period (normally 65) and i = any day
CP% = (Closing Power (i) - Closing Power low for N Days back from day i)
Closing Power high for N days back from day i - CLosing Power low for N days back from day
Pr% = (Price(i) - lowest price for N days back from day I)
(Price high for N days back from day i
- Price low for N days back from day I.)
If we make a Buy B7 occur when the 65-day CP Divergence is above .35 from prices for their
65-day range, and cause a Sell S7 occur when the 65-day CP Divergence from Prices is below
we see B7s in August on the chart for DIA below. Here
is a link to SPY charts showing key
B7 and S7 signals since 1999. These signals
are meant to be alerts to developing opportunities, so long
as professionals remain or become dominant and Opening changes in prices are not wildly
up or down from the previous day's close. When the Public is in the market, openings
widely from the previus day's close and the S7s are very pemature.

The ratio of new highs to new lows bullishly remained over 10:1, on the NYSE (107:5)

only 26 today,

If you like trading range stocks, use the STOCH5 stocks, and know that
93 are on Buys
and 153 are on Sells. I would still use trend-breaks in CLosing Power
to clinch any new
Sells, like EPAY, MIR, PAG and SID. Significantly, the Tiger Index
of these Trading
stocks shows them to be on the verge of a bullish breakout and
77% of them are
now above their 65-day ma.
Today the DJI did fall back a little from the neckline from the head/shoulders pattern
But we still have no Peerless Sell, the NYSE A/D Line is rising and the
for the ETFs are
still rising. I have shown that historically strong Septembers are very likely
to be followed by
a very good October. The weakness in the Dollar has made US
stocks look cheap
to foreigners; at the same time, the record low interest rates
are forcing US
investors out of money markets and CDs and into stocks.
While Gold and foreign ETFs are
very strong, Crude Oil is not. And as long, as Crude Oil
does not breakout
and accelerate up, I would bet that the FED will stick to its low
rate policies and continue to buy Treasuries with money it
creates/prints. That view is
the continuing strength in the bond market and utilities.
There is some dissent
within the Fed about its buying US Treasuries, but most
economists see that necessary, so long as Democrats and Republicans neither
lead nor get
along well enough to govern. In my opinion, the Fed is now the main

better than a Depression. I think the Dollar will not collapse. There is
alternative to it presently in international trade.
