Market Signals Summary:The IBH stock market model is out of the market. The MAC stock market model is invested, The recession indicator COMP is higher than last week’s revised level, and iM-BCIg is also higher from last week’s level. MAC-AU is invested. The bond market model avoids high beta (long) bonds, the yield curve is steepening, both the gold and silver model are invested.
Stock-markets:The IBH-model is out of the market as shown in Fig. 1. A sell signal was generated 64 weeks ago when the WLIg_shortEMA moved below the WLIg_longEMA. Currently the WLIg_shortEMA indicator is just above the level of the WLIg_longEMA. If the sell signal was correct then WLIg_shortEMA would have moved decisively below WLIg_longEMA, which it did not. The indicator graphs currently all have a positive slope which is usually the case during up-market periods. The IBH-model is described here and the latest rules can be found here .
The MAC-US model stays invested. MAC-US Fig 2 shows the spreads of the moving averages. The sell-spread is higher from last week’s level. A sell signals is not imminent. The sell spread (red graph) has to move below the zero line for a sell signal
The MAC-AU model stays invested. MAC-AU Fig 2.1 shows the spreads of the moving averages of the Australia All Ordinaries Index. The sell-spread is higher than last week’s level. The sell spread (red graph) has to move below the zero line for a sell signal.
This model and its application is described in MAC-Australia: A Moving Average Crossover System for Superannuation Asset Allocations.
Recession:In Fig. 3 one can see that COMP is higher week’s revised level, and far away from signaling recession. COMP can be used for stock market exit timing as discussed in this article The Use of Recession Indicators in Stock Market Timing.
