PREV (the Matrix)
The Commitments of Traders report is being updated twice a week until it catches up with the current week. This means DI and other leverage calculations, critical tools that help identify early and late life cycle trades, barring another government shutdown, should be up-to-date by March.
British Pound and corn have entered alignment. Neither a strong signals as each have their weaknesses.
Gold & silver's trends are gaining strength. Gold is leading, but silver is not too far behind. The precious metals composite or PMC (line 74-77) is driving this strength. Two out of three of the PMC's sub components are bullish. It will be three out of three when silver begin outperforming gold (line 74). It's only a matter of time, and acceleration of trends will be a probable outcome.
I make no attempt to promote gold & silver, frankly far too many have been doing this since 2011. Gold should not be considered a permanent addition to portfolios nor a solution to the monetary crisis. It's an asset that should be bought and sold. With that said, it's looking like 2019 could be the year that relights the fuse.
BuST & BrST > 0, observations made in the daily, weekly, or monthly time frames, warn investors where upside or downside alignments are pushing against the cycle of time. The computer defines these alignments as Early, Mid, or Late. Late cycle alignments are vulnerable to reversal. A daily BuST or BrST > 2, for example, suggests a growing probability of consolidation ahead even in Early and Mid cycle alignments.
Using the Matrix
The value of the Matrix is far more than a study of price. Trends are a function of price, volume (force), volatility, and TIME. The order of their importance is as follows: (1) TIME, (2) volatility, (3) volume & price alignment. Volume and price alignment, a setup that triggers action, favors Grade A & B, early cycle markets under high compression (↓COM). ↓COM suggests extremely low volatility, a quiet trend ready to explode into high compression (↑EXP). Weekly and monthly breakout signals are not finalized until the end of the week and month, respectively. Signals generated before that could be temporary. Keep this in mind when reading alignment.
Suggested Reading: The Cycle of Accumulation and Distribution (CAD), Leverage Oscillator (LTLO), Diffusion Index (DI), Volatility Bandwidth (BW), Compression (COM), Expansion (EXP), Alignment, Upside Alignment, Downside Alignment, Sentiment Model, Intermarket Trends, VIX Model, Economic Activity Composite, Long Term Cycles.
