Inter Market Analysis

Inter market analysis is a series of articles studying related segments of the market to identify lead lags between trends in each segment. This can often forewarn you of impending changes in trend and allow for planning of required action based on it. For example midcaps v/s large caps, currencies v/s commodities and US markets v/s European markets and so on. In a global environment inter-market relationships are not restricted to a country but between countries and their respective asset classes as well.


Google - or now better known as Alphabet, the stock has been in the long term 5th wave for a while.

US 30 year Treasury bonds

US 30 year bonds are still within retracements limits for wave II up, so while there is no change in the wave counts or view, wave II has gone up to 78.6% and wave III remains far overdue to start.

Midcap Indices Gyrating

Midcap indices have been all over the place since May. These large gyrations are signs of a market with increasing volatility seen more at the end of a trend. So is the recent bounce back that has today morning retraced 78.6% of the fall in wave A simply a counter trend move, or Wave E of a ending pattern that will see it touche the upper line once again. It is hard to say. The fall may appear impulsive on hourly charts just as it did at the end of May but that might not be enough. All we can say is that these gyrations will eventually give way to an ending pattern in line with the already declining momentum on weekly charts.
