PREV (the Matrix)
New alignments: US Dollar Index
Many of the trends from alignment to intermarket flows are being driven by the US dollar. Investors looking for confirmation of a narrative that define their beliefs likely won't recognize the upside alignment in the dollar. Subscribers whom have made a choice to remove opinion from their investment discipline do. The dollar has been in and out of triple alignment for many months. The majority remains oblivious because to it because they listen too much to talking heads rather than the message of the market.
The growing concern (soon to be panic) in the periphery economies has been sending the world's capital to the US & US dollar. This is why the dollar, despite all the critics, continues to move in and out of triple alignment; triple alignment is the strongest trend defined in the Matrix. Foreign capital flows, the buying of US dollars, is pushing US stocks higher. Preference for dollar will eventually push other 'safe haven' assets like gold and silver higher, but only after confidence falters. Gold continues to struggle in the face of dollar strength, because confidence remains in bull phase (Matrix Line 103).
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.
