This is Turov on Timing for Monday, December 28, 2009.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (“SPX”) advanced 5.89 points Friday to close at 1126.48. TOT daily traders were on the sidelines for the session.
Since initiation of the Turov on Timing service on September 30, 1993, our daily trader recommendations have gained 11234.87 cumulative SPX points, compared to a gain of 667.55 points in the index itself over the same period. That’s a ratio of 16.83 to 1.
The super long term perspective for the stock market remains bearish (as it has been since January 2000). I expect that the bear market will resume in earnest in 2010, leading to a possible end to that decade long perspective at lower prices in 2011 or 2012. But we’re certainly not at that point yet.
The Intermediate Term Model remains bullish.
The daily model is extremely bearish today, although if there’s selling in the morning, the afternoon could stabilize.
TOT daily traders are advised to go 400% short at SPX 1126 stop or at SPX 1130 limit, whichever comes first. Once you are short, use a 12 point protective buy stop on the position.
Thanks for the opportunity to be of service, and I’ll email you again between 10:45 and 11 a.m. – or sooner if circumstances warrant.
