Along with my continuous writing in 2022 concerning the bearish market atmosphere and why I consider we’re going decrease, I’ve additionally supplied EarningsBeats.com members with some precious historic data.
Right here was an excerpt from final Monday’s Day by day Market Report (DMR) to our members (I publish a DMR daily the inventory market is open):
“Let’s speak historic efficiency. At this time is April 18th…..The following 10 calendar days by means of April twenty eighth have been traditionally flat over the previous 7 a long time. If Wall Avenue’s not shopping for firms forward of their earnings reviews, that tells me one factor. They do not anticipate a robust earnings season – or not less than they’re involved about potential warnings.”
I then mentioned extra particularly the outlook for know-how (XLK) and client discretionary (XLY):
“I do know that the XLK and XLY home many progress shares they usually’re merely not performing nicely proper now. I am afraid we’re about to get some warnings from main know-how and discretionary names…..we’ll quickly discover out.”
The very subsequent day, Netflix (NFLX), an web inventory ($DJUSNS) dropped a BOMB on buyers and reported that subscribers dropped for the primary time since 2011. On Wednesday, Lam Analysis (LRCX) missed its earnings estimate, which triggered one other selloff of semiconductor shares ($DJUSSC). On Thursday, it was Snap, Inc.’s (SNAP) flip because it reported an surprising quarterly loss, additionally lacking its income estimate, encouraging additional promoting within the web area. The scary half is that we’ve not actually seen many massive NASDAQ firms report but. Tesla (TSLA), regardless of blowout outcomes that simply beat expectations, traded down 8% after a gap hole larger on Thursday following earnings. If blowout numbers cannot generate patrons, what’s going to subsequent week seem like after Microsoft (MSFT), Alphabet (GOOGL), Meta Platforms (FB), Apple (AAPL), and Amazon.com (AMZN) report their quarterly outcomes? Let’s hope Wall Avenue is in a greater temper.
One firm that I might not depend on this week is FB. Wall Avenue has been promoting this inventory hand over fist. FB is an exceptionally poor relative performer, so after they report, you higher look out under!
Perhaps unhealthy information is already constructed into FB’s deteriorating worth motion? The bulls had higher hope the unhealthy information is in-built, as a result of I am additionally sure the information right here won’t be good. It might be horrific. Shares don’t drop 45% in 3 months for no purpose in any respect. Wall Avenue has been bailing out of FB for a lot of weeks now and we’ll probably discover out why on Wednesday.
There’s one very attention-grabbing widespread denominator concerning the impulsive bouts of promoting in 2022. Have a look at the shaded areas on the S&P 500 chart under and see should you discover one factor in widespread (earlier than you scroll down for the reply):
Do you see it? What is the one factor that is the identical between the entire 4 highlighted durations?
Reply: It is the identical time of every calendar month. I’ve studied the every day historical past of buying and selling on our main indices since 1950. That is 253 buying and selling days per yr and my spreadsheet is in its 73rd yr. That is plenty of buying and selling days. There are 3 VERY IMPORTANT historic developments that EVERY dealer ought to concentrate on. These three nuggets of historic information will make a giant distinction in your buying and selling.
Here is the very best half. I will present you these 3 historic secrets and techniques in a Market Timing Sequence that I’ve simply completed writing. CLICK HERE and be sure you present me your identify and e mail deal with. The primary e mail will spotlight 10 consecutive days of the calendar month that account for 80% of the S&P 500’s features since 1950. That is proper. Roughly one-third of all buying and selling days since 1950 account for 80% of the features. After I first realized this, I used to be shocked (kinda). However this data has made me a significantly better dealer, as a result of my odds of buying and selling success instantly shot larger.

Glad buying and selling!
