PREV (the Matrix)
New alignments: British Pound,Canadian dollar, and Euro.
The rally in the US dollar (US dollar index) should be receiving attention, but it will likely get dismissed until the pain become too great to bear. The Matrix's sector alignment highlight the growing focus of alignment across the currency and commodity markets (see Sector Alignment). A rising US dollar will squeeze (contract) the US economy, regardless of any US China trade deal, or policy intended to simulate. The rising dollar will not only slow the core economy but it will also pressure a large pile of debt issued in dollar outside the US. It is this pile that will trigger a global contagion.
A rising dollar is pressure commodities, including gold & silver. Gold & silver will become the exception when confidence falter, the public realizes the monetary system will be vulnerable during the next contagion. Trouble is, confidence, while deteriorating, is still bullish (Matrix 103). Confidence MUST transition from bull to bear phase. Confidence cycle of TIME, BuST ~ 3, says there's an extremely high probability that the transition comes in 2019. What investors might not realize is that once confidence goes, it will rock markets without warning, because the talking heads rarely talk about what's happening on the global stage. Follow the Matrix. It provides a deeper perspective than Technical or fundamental analysis.
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.
