Hindenburg Omen Fires Off Another Volley

Just a short report today friends.  It was a long weekend in Canada so I took my eye off the markets for today.  But when I checked the market internals stats this evening I was a bit surprised to have discovered that the Hindenburg Omen issued another signal today.  It was a rather strange one as well because the numbers for the new 52 week highs and lows were BOTH higher than usual for an HO signal day.  Nonetheless, all conditions were met so the market has generated another HO signal.

With the last HO signal having occurred on June 19th, this one could be still be considered as part of a larger cluster that began back then.  No matter how we want to classify it though, the message is the same... that although the market is still officially rising (as determined by the fact that the 50 day MA on the NYSE is rising), while there were 206 new 52 week highs generated, there were ALSO 111 new lows.  And that dear readers is the exact type of polarity that the HO was designed to detect and issue an alert on.

So there you have it... another HO signal issued on August 5th, 2013.

Just a reminder....

  2. You're quite welcome. But in truth, in the comments section of my last article, today commenter 'Fed Up With The Fed' actually beat me to it. Cudos to him/her as well :-)

  3. Saw this on ZH yesterday ( http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-08-05/lowest-volume-day-year-ends-hindenburg-omen ), but was waiting for your confirmation! Thanks!

  4. Thanks HR. I used the search box on ZH yesterday to see if there was any new article on the HO and that one didn't turn up. So I missed it. I was wondering why nobody else reported it but obviously I just haven't spent enough time to focus much on markets these days. Gotta hand it to ZH too, they've been getting it right lately, are posting about Omen signals when they are legit, and are not posting false ones anymore. Thanks for posting the link buddy.

  6. Yes sir... the HO did indeed register another one today. And the market internals for today's signal were even worse than yesterday's. Today there were 124 new highs and 191 new lows. So she's getting very wobbly good buddy.

  7. Cheers for the update, AR. Everyone seems lulled into a torpid complacency at the moment, so hopefully we'll see some fireworks soon. Can't believe there's been so little reaction to the carnage in Spain and Portugal. Calm before the storm.

  9. LOL... no, they beat me to it on both of these latest signals so they're getting it right 'all by themselves' :-)
