World Stock Markets Poised: Quarterly Report (Part 2)

April 9, 2019

In part two of the Quarterly Report I’m going to update some long term charts for some of the world stock markets. As you will see many have formed massive ten plus year consolidation patterns similar of what we observed in the first installment of the Quarterly Report which are similar in duration to many of the US stock markets. It’s these big multi-year consolidation patterns that are strongly suggesting to us that the world as we know it is not coming to an end as so many analysis would like us to believe. For whatever reasons bear market news tends to grab investors attention much more so than bullish news. It has to work that way because if everyone was bullish, that comes at the end of a bull market, there would be no one left to buy. I’ve often said that, “investing in the markets is psychological warfare more than anything else.”

Let’s get started by looking at the $AORD, Australian stock market, which built out a ten year triangle consolidation pattern. The top rail was broken to the upside in early 2017 with a small rally and now a strong backtest which found support at the last possible point which is the apex where the top and bottom rails intersect. A move below the apex would be an end around move which would have bearish implications, but until then the bull market remains in place.

The $BSE, India Bombay stock market, has held up very well and is just a few of the markets that are testing their all-time highs. It’s like the energizer bunny that just keeps on going and going.

This next world stock market is the $BVSP, Brazilian Stock market, which is one of the strongest in the world right now after completing a perfect breakout and backtest to the top rail of its ten year triangle consolation pattern.

The $CAC, French stock market, is still in the breaking out and backtesting process. The strong backtest was nullified when the price action traded back above the top rail of its 17 year triangle consolidation pattern.

The $DAX, German stock market, broke out from its massive 12 year triangle consolation pattern around the same time many of the US stocks markets in 2013. It’s currently working on a multi year rising wedge formation that is forming above the top rail of its 12 year triangle consolidation pattern which is generally a bullish setup, but won’t be confirmed until the top rail is broken.

The $HSI, Hong Kong stock market, shows a similar setup to many of the stocks markets from around the world. It has formed a ten year triangle consolidation pattern with a strong backtest to the top rail that occurred late last year when the US and other world stock markets experienced the Christmas Eve shakeout move.

The $NIKK, Nikkei stock market, is one of the most important stock markets in the world so it’s always a good to see what it’s doing. The $NIKK originally topped out in the middle of 2015, but has been trading sideways and is building out a rising wedge formation. Note the backtest to the 2016 H&S bottom neckline which showed me a place to draw in the bottom rail of the rising wedge. Most will view the rising wedge as a bearish rising wedge but I’l reserve judgment until I see which trendline gives way. Note the smaller blue bullish rising wedge which formed just below the bigger one.
