The Energy Sector Has The Strongest Numbers

Looking at the overall 30-day period, the models have gotten more bearish. This week the average is 3.70; last week, it was 4.11. This week only two sectors have bullish averages for the 30 days.

The sector with the highest score is Energy, with an average of 5.27, up from last week’s number of 4.68. Falling to second is Biotechnology, with a 30-day score of 4.81.

The bottom three sectors are Technology at 3.14, Emerging Markets at 2.70, and Bonds at 2.60.

Four Sectors That May Be Buys.

Looking at the overall 30-day period, the models have gotten bullish. This week the average is 4.11; last week, it was 3.53. For the first time in several weeks, there are sectors in the bullish zone, four to be exact.

The sector with the highest score is Biotechnology, with an average of 5.29, well above the neutral mark of 4.5. Except for Monday and Tuesday, all averages are green or bearish. And like last week, Health Care is showing bullish numbers through the middle of November. Its 30-day average is 4.72. The two other bullish sectors are Energy, scoring 4.68, and Precious Metals and Miners, with a score of 4.61.

Finally, the Bond sector returns to the bottom of the list with a score of 3.03.

Some Sectors Are Looking Up

September was a tough month for the markets. From what I have read, most prognosticators are looking for a continuation through October, especially this coming Monday.

For the overall 30-day period, the models remain entirely in the bear camp. But Friday night’s numbers are up from the previous week‘s average. This week the average is 3.53; last week, it was 3.21. For the fifth week in a row, there is no sector with an average above 4.5 in the bullish zone.

The sector with the highest score, Biotechnology, almost gets a Bullish score. An average of 4.46 is barely below the neutral mark of 4.5. And for the later part of October and early November, Biotech gets daily scores in the 5’s. Last week’s top sector was Health Care. Health Care fell a bit with an average of 4.36. Health Care also has some bullish daily numbers at the end of the 30-day period.

What caught my eye was the strong green day occurring this coming Tuesday for Precious Metals and Miners. But, I prefer a continuation of similar numbers to make any judgment, and since 6.8 is standing as the sole bullish number for that period, I will ignore it.

The sector with the worst score is Energy, with an average of 2.90. And like last week, Commodities average remains in the 2’s with a score of 2.99.

Despite The End Of Week Bounce, The Models Remain Bearish

A good recovery in the markets from Wednesday on. I didn’t expect that to happen. The models suggest that the buying should continue on Monday and maybe into Tuesday. But for the overall 30-day period, the models remain fully in the bear camp. Friday night’s numbers show the overall average up slightly at 3.69 from last week’s 3.46. And like last week’s, no sectors show an average in the bullish zone. The bullish zone Sept 10 2022is above 4.5.

For the second week in a row, the Biotech sector has the best 30-day score; but it is a bearish 4.29. The models are still predicting some good numbers this week and early October. The models expect the Real Estate sector to perform well over the next two to three weeks.

The sector with the worst score is Commodities. With an average of 2.88, I don’t expect much good news coming out of that sector for the next six weeks. And the Technology sector is showing bearish numbers for most of the 30 days in the study.

All Sectors Indicate The Sell-Off To Continue.

There was a heck of a sell-off this week. I hope you didn’t get caught in the sucker’s rally on Friday morning. I sort of did; I picked up three inverse ETFs early in the week and set up some 5% trailing stops on them; Friday morning, the stops were executed for a gain, but by Friday afternoon, I would have been better off if the sales didn’t execute.

Based on the models, the sell-off will continue through October. The overall 30-day score, the average of all the sectors, remains unchanged. This week’s average fell dramatically to 3.46 from last week’s 4.07. So the models are very bearish.

No sectors are showing an average in the bullish zone. The bullish zone is above 4.5.

The Energy sector’s average, which had been strong for the previous three weeks, took a big step down to a score of 3.69.

The Biotech sector is the only sector showing green on a daily basis, but even its 30-day score is bearish at 4.30. The models predict some good numbers start in October.

The sector with the worst score is Technology. With an average of 2.66, I don’t expect much good news coming out of that sector for the next six weeks.

And watch out for some bad numbers this coming week in Commodities and the U.S. Stock Market.

September Stock Market Safe Haves May Be Energy and BioTech.

Heck of a sell-off on Friday, wasn’t it? This coming Monday could be interesting. While I think that on Monday, the sell-off will continue, the models predict most sectors to be positive. The overall 30-day score, the average of all the sectors, remains unchanged. This week’s average is 4.07. So the models are still bearish.

For the third week in a row, the Energy sector is in the number one spot with the most bullish number. Energy’s 30-day average score is 5.16, down from 5.33. The models continue to look for a peak during the first week and the second week of September. The Biotechnology sector comes in second with an average score of 4.56, slightly above the neutral number of 4.5. The models have Commodities with some strength during the third week of September.

The three sectors at the bottom of the list are Technology with a score of 3.62, the Consumer sector scoring 3.63, and Bonds with a score of 3.79.

So, like the past seven weeks, the models are bearish, except for Energy.

Energy Top Pick For The Next 30 Days.

So the overall 30-day average has improved from last week’s 3.87. This week the models give us an average of 4.22, which is still bearish. The number needs to get above 4.5 to be bullish to provide a positive outlook.

For the second week in a row, the Financial sector, scoring 3.59, has the worst 30-day average score. The U.S. Stock Market has the second worst average score at 3.77.

The Energy sector moved back to the number one spot as the sector with the most bullish number. Energy’s 30-day average score is 5.12, up from 4.27. And Biotechnology which was number one last week, is down to second with a score of 4.59, down from 4.83. With a score of 4.59, it is bearly bullish.

So, like the past five weeks, the models remain primarily bearish.

The Models Expect One More Bullish Week For The Stock Market.

Let’s look at last night’s sector strength chart; the overall average has improved to 4.12 from the previous week’s 3.98 If you watched last week’s video, you know the models called for the markets to be up this past week, and this coming week. Well, so far, so good.

The Emerging Markets sector has the worst overall average, scoring 3.58. The Precious Metals & Miners sector has an underperforming prospect. The computed strength is 3.76. The models are looking for positive pop next week, followed by a continuous downtrend through August and the first week of September.

The Energy sector has the best overall score of 5.14 and a good short-term prospect, which should occur in 8 to 11 days scoring 6.29. The Biotechnology chart is still the only chart showing an uptrend. The problem with the trend is that it remains in the bearish zone for most of the 30 days. It does get bullish the first week of September.

So, like the past three weeks, the models expect a downside to the markets through August.
