bubble-watch--maybe-it-only-just-started-dow-50000--update-2A brief chart post of why Dow 45,000 to 50,000 is on the table.

Many are forecasting a blow off top for stocks. This is fair, and it has happened a few times before, one lead into 1987 (first chart below, see A)  and another into 2000 (first chart below, see B and C) Dow Jones market tops.

The Detrending Price Oscillator (DPO) indicator measures price away from a simple moving average in percentage terms.

POINT: In short it measures how far the rubber band is stretched. 

Lets look at the DPO indicator. Currently today's price position is at 3 (or 60%) this is equal to prior positions of 1 and 2 (first chart below). The DPO price (3) can move all the way up to prior tops of A,B and C, to X. If this happens, it will be equal to a Dow Jones price range of 44,000 and 50,000, see X??. This a percentage gain of 25% to 45%  (current Dow Jones is 35,000).

POINT: Investors will not want to miss out on these gains.

The red cycle shown on the Dow as worked very well over 100 years, please review the red cycle high during the 1987 top, this can happen again in 2021/22. History may not repeat exactly, but it sure can rhyme.

Investing Quote...

.."Successful tape reading is a study of force. It requires the ability to judge which side has the greatest of pulling power and one must have the courage to go with that side"..

Richard D Wyckoff

.."Markets are constantly in a state of uncertainty and flux and money is made by discounting the obvious and betting on the unexpected"..

George Soros

Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.

Nobel Laureate for Economics Paul Samuelson

..“Bull markets are born on pessimism, grow on scepticism, mature on optimism and die of euphoria.”..

John Templeton

...“People somehow think you must buy at the bottom and sell at the top to be successful in the market. That’s nonsense! The idea is to buy when the probability is greatest that the market is going to advance”...
