Market Signals Summary:
The MAC-US model is invested. However, the “3-mo Hi-Lo Index of the S&P500” generated a sell signal on 8/22/2017 and is in cash. The monthly updated S&P500 Coppock indicator is also invested. The MAC-AU is also invested. The recession indicators COMP and iM-BCIg do not signal a recession. The bond market model avoids high beta (long) bonds, and the yield curve trend is flattening. Both the gold and silver Coppock models are invested, and the iM-Gold Timer is in gold since 7/10/2017.
The MAC-US model generated a buy-signal 4/5/2016 and thus is invested in the stock-markets. The sell-spread (red graph) is below last week’s level and has to fall below zero to signal a sell.
The 3-mo Hi-Lo Index of the S&P500 is above last week’s level at 4.58% (last week 4.39%) and is out of the market since 8/22/2017.
This model and its application is described in MAC-Australia: A Moving Average Crossover System for Superannuation Asset Allocations.
Recession:Figure 3 shows the COMP below last week’s downward revised level. No recession is indicated. COMP can be used for stock market exit timing as discussed in this article The Use of Recession Indicators in Stock Market Timing.
