Market Commentary

Market Stance: BULLISH (since February 24, 2018)

Last week, the market seems to have settled down a bit, with volatility subsiding. The S&P 500 gained 0.6% (total return VFINX), and Deen Capital accounts gained 0.3%.

This underperformance was due to my bearish outlook for most of the week -- we were briefly in cash at one point, and we missed some gains as a result. My indicators improved bit by bit all week, and, on Friday, two of them shifted from bearish to neutral. This was enough to shift the overall reading of my indicators from bearish to bullish.

And so I have changed my outlook from bearish to bullish. I do worry that the recent correction may re-assert itself -- that we may yet see another significant market drop. I am monitoring the situation closely.

At this time, however, I am approaching the market with a bullish outlook. Our accounts are fully and slightly aggressively invested.

My Three Primary Technical Indicators:

                                       Prior week             Now
                                       ----------           -------
NASDAQ Timing Model (Ver.11aa):          BULLISH            BULLISH (1)

Performance of Recent Stock Picks:  -2.7 BEARISH       +4.3 NEUTRAL (2)

Market Internals:                    38% BEARISH        40% NEUTRAL (3)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Market's Overall Technical Rating:       BEARISH            BULLISH

Stocks:Cash ratio (average):              100:0              100:0

(1) A proprietary computer model based on technical analysis of the NASDAQ Composite.

(2) This number (from -10 to +10) is based on the performance of ALL my recent stock picks (I actually buy only some of these). A positive number means my recent stock picks are generally rising; a negative number means they are generally falling. Even so, I consider a reading below +3.1 to be bearish. I require a reading of +5.6 or better to call this indicator bullish.

(3) This is the percentage of stocks ($8 and up) which are trading above their 50-day moving average. The rating of this percentage (bullish, bearish or neutral) is based on which way it's been moving recently -- up, down or sideways.
