The signal for the Bull & Bear Tracker is now RED. The signal had been GREEN since April 9, 2018. See Equities article “NIRP Crash Indicator Renamed “Bull & Bear Tracker”; Signal Now GREEN”. The signal switched from GREEN to RED due to the increase volatility of the US Dollar Japanese Yen exchange rate.
For the period that the signal had been GREEN the S&P 500 went from 2,613.16, the close of April 9th to 2,713.98, the market open on May 23rd, an increase of 3.8%. However, the trading vehicle that I recommended to trade the GREEN signal which was the SPXL performed significantly better increasing by more than 10%. The SPXL which is a triple leveraged long ETF derivative for the S&P 500 went from $39.79, as of the close of April 9th to $44.19, the market open for today May 23rd. Now that the signal is RED, the recommended vehicle to trade the signal is the SPXS, a triple leveraged short ETF derivative for the S&P 500.

Disclaimer. Mr. Markowski’s predictions are frequently ahead of the curve. The September 2007 predictions that appeared in his EquitiesMagazine.com column stated that share-price collapses of the five major brokers, including Lehman and Bear Stearns, were imminent. While accurate, they proved to be premature. For this reason he had to advise readers to get out a second time in his January 2008 column entitled “Brokerages and the Sub-Prime Crash”. His third and final warning to get out, and stay out, occurred in October of 2008 after Lehman had filed for bankruptcy. In that article “The Carnage for Financials Isn’t Over” he reiterated that share prices for Goldman and Morgan Stanley were too high. By the end of November 2008, the share prices of both had fallen by an additional 60% and 70%, respectively — new all-time lows.
