STOCK MARKET BEARISH -- SHORT -- CAUTION -- TURN MAY BE IMMINENT

Keybot the Quant remains on the bear side as this trading week motors along without Keybot printing any numbers as yet. Stocks keep floating higher. SOX remains in the bear camp and VIX in the bull camp. Neither parameter has flinched to reveal the path ahead for the stock market.

The battle for Wednesday has expanded. Keybot is tracking four key parameters most impacting stock market direction ahead; chips, copper, volatility and utilities. The bulls need either SOX above 1252.80 and/or JJC above 34.80. If either parameter turns bullish, and the SPX moves above 2670, Keybot will likely flip long, hence the imminent turn notation in the title line.

The bears need either VIX above 10.76 and/or UTIL below 740.95. Utilities fell during the Tuesday session with UTIL at 748.31. This is extremely important. Next week the key UTIL level will be 746.94, call it 747. As of Friday at 4 PM EST and all next week, if UTIL falls under 747, stocks will begin dropping in earnest. Bulls must send utes higher immediately or they will be in trouble moving into next week. In addition, keep an eye on commodities since GTX under 2377 will create stock market downside.

To boil this down into something simpler, Keybot will likely flip long if SOX moves above 1252-1253 and the SPX moves above 2670. The algorithm will remain short and begin sending stocks lower if the VIX pops above 10.76. VIX futures begin trading at 3 AM EST. Copper futures will also be trading overnight to provide a heads up on how JJC will move on hump day.

Wednesday is a huge day for markets with the FOMC rate decision, forecasts and Chair Yellen's final press conference. One of the parameters above will flinch tomorrow. Keybot does not print any pre-scheduled numbers this week so the market action dictates the way this drama plays out.

STOCK MARKET BEARISH -- SHORT -- CAUTION -- TURN MAY BE IMMINENT

Keybot the Quant is on the short side from last week from SPX 2636 with the sideways choppy market slop continuing. The stock market remains a coin-flip as evidenced with the algo number only 2 points below the signal line favoring bears by a hair.

The two key parameters controlling stock market direction currently are semiconductors and volatility. Bears will send the stock market lower if VIX moves above 10.76 (now at 9.58). Bulls will take control and send stocks to more record highs if the SOX moves above 1253.80 (now at 1238). One of these two parameters will flinch and tell you the stock market direction ahead.

If the SOX moves above 1253-1254, and the SPX moves above 2652, Keybot will likely flip back to the long side hence the imminent turn notation remains in the title line.

On the last trade, the algorithm computer program gains a couple percent and the actual trading nearly +3%. The Keybot program and the actual trading are each up about +3% this year with 3 weeks remaining in 2017. The benchmark S&P 500 is up a big +18% this year. The global central bankers are money Gods. Keybot exits IWM and enters SDS. The algo is back into the 2x ETF mode again.The low volatility continues wreaking havoc on algorithms this year.

Keybot does not print any pre-scheduled numbers this week. The bears are in control but stronger chips will help the bulls regain control. Higher volatility will send stocks lower.

The November Publication of the Daily Chronology of Global Markets and World Economics 2017-11 is available through Amazon. The historic market action continues with more all-time and multi-year record stock market highs printing in the major indexes and individual stocks around the world. The world is awash in central banker liquidity so all asset classes continue floating ever higher, perhaps forever.

November Cover Highlights;
RECORD HIGHS IN WORLD STOCK MARKETS CONTINUE
DOW 24K+
SPX 2600+
BITCOIN 11K+
TAX-CUT BILL
BREXIT
JEROME POWELL NEXT FEDERAL RESERVE CHAIRMAN
AMAZON CEO BEZOS $100 BILLION MAN
TECH STOCKS SELLOFF
FLATTENNG YIELD CURVE
HIGH-YIELD BOND OUTFLOWS
VIX FLASH CRASHES TO HISTORIC 8.56 LOW
FORMER TRUMP ADVISER FLYNN COOPERATES WITH FBI

The November chronology highlights the non-stop all-time record breaking stock market highs in all seven major US indexes (SPX, INDU or DJI, COMPQ, NDX, RUT, NYA, TRAN or DJT). The Dow overtakes 24,000 and the S&P 500 is above 2600. Bitcoin prints above 11.1K before dropping back.

President Trump continues boasting about the new record highs in stocks taking full credit and responsibility for the joy. Oil is on the move higher with both West Texas and Brent printing at two-year highs.

Jerome “Jay” Powell will be the new Fed chairman and he breezed through a confirmation hearing in November. Former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn cops a plea and decides to cooperate with the FBI investigators. Flynn promptly throws Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, under the bus. Thump, thump.

The chronology explains the price moves in global stock, bond and currency markets after key geopolitical events, central bank monetary policy meetings and economic data releases such as the monthly jobs report. If you are trying to make sense of the markets this is the resource for you. No other publication exists where the stock, bond and currency moves are detailed and explained as world events and economic news take place in real-time.

You can re-live the real-time price moves and excitement in markets for any past events including the May 2015 stock market top (2015-02 through 2015-10), Brexit (2016-06 and 2016-07), the US election (2016-10 and 2016-11), the drama behind the French election (2017-04 and 2017-05), economic data releases, monthly jobs reports, Fed meetings and much more. The wild overnight crash in the S&P futures, and quick recovery, after President Trump’s election last November is chronicled in real-time, as it happened minute-by-minute, in the 2016-11 publication.

In the 2017-11 publication, relive the 400-point intraday drop on Friday, 12/1/17, when it was thought that former Trump adviser Michael Flynn had implicated the president in nefarious deeds. This news story turned out to be not true although Kushner is in trouble.

As always, all monthly publications of the Daily Chronology of GlobalMarkets and World Economics are available from the links in the margins of the K E Stone blog sites or simply searching on Amazon or Google. The monthly publications contain updated information not posted on the Keystone the Scribe web site as well as clarifications, corrections, edits and refinements to the ongoing daily blog text.

The December 2017-12 chronology is tentatively set for publishing by Amazon on Saturday, 1/6/18.

The highly popular ‘Keystone the Scribe’ daily market chronology blog, ‘The Keystone Speculator’ stock, bond and currency (Forex) technical analysis and charts blog and the ‘Keybot the Quant’ algorithm blog are visited by over one-half million people around the world each month.

STOCK MARKET BULLISH -- LONG -- CAUTION -- TURN MAY BE IMMINENT

Keybot the Quant remains long but the bears keep chomping away trying to create weakness. The algo has been idling in recent days as the stock market continues printing record highs but yesterday goes crazy printing off 11 numbers. The algo wanted to go short but all the internal parameters would not latch to allow the move so Keybot remains on the long side.

Chips, copper and volatility are most impacting stock market direction currently. Market bears need the VIX above 10.66, SOX below 1257 and JJC to remain below 35.07. The market bulls need the VIX to remain below 10.66 (trading at 10.40 as this message is typed), the SOX to remain above 1257 and JJC needs to move above 35.07. As the Thursday session begins, volatility is bullish, semiconductors are bullish and copper is bearish.

If either VIX moves above 10.66 and/or SOX below 1257 (now at 1265), either one would do, and the SPX drops below 2620, Keybot will likely flip short, hence the imminent turn notation in the title line. Today is EOM and it appears the bull's will log another up month for the stock market. Keybot prints a pre-scheduled number this evening.

Bulls are cheering for higher copper which will catapult stocks higher. Bears are hoping for weaker chips and higher volatility, otherwise, they got nothing.

STOCK MARKET BULLISH -- LONG -- CAUTION -- TURN MAY BE IMMINENT

Keybot the Quant remains long. The S&P 500 prints above 2600 last Thursday and on Friday closes above 2600 for the first time in history. The bulls, and central bankers, are unstoppable. The algo identifies volatility and banks as the two key parameters most impacting stock market direction currently. The market bears need either VIX above 10.63 and/or XLF below 26.02. If both parameters remain bullish, stocks will continue floating higher.

If either parameter turns bearish, and the SPX drops under 2600, Keybot will likely flip short. Bears need higher volatility and lower banks otherwise the beatings will continue. Keybot prints two pre-scheduled numbers this week. The month ends on Thursday. November started at SPX 2575.26 so bears would need a 27-point pull back within the next four days to turn the month negative. The bulls remain in firm control of the stock market. The algorithm remains pegged at the epic maximum +100 level.

STOCK MARKET BULLISH -- LONG -- CAUTION

Keybot the Quant remains long. The bulls are in their glory as the algorithm continues printing the epic +100 highs. Keep watching the VIX 10.65 level for the first sign of cracks in the stock market. If the VIX moves higher and oscillates above and below the 10.65 level this likely hints that stocks will begin selling off. For now, the bulls are on easy street. Keybot remains pegged into the maximum +100 ceiling with all algorithm parameters joyously bullish. The stock market closes at 1 PM EST today.

STOCK MARKET BULLISH -- LONG -- CAUTION -- TURN MAY BE IMMINENT

Keybot the Quant remains long. The key parameter controlling market direction currently is volatility. Stocks will continue higher if the VIX maintains a 9-handle. Market bears need VIX above 10.65 to create stock market selling. Bulls rule the stock market with the VIX below 10.65.

If the VIX turns bearish at 10.65, and the SPX drops below 2589, Keybot will likely flip short. The epic market action continues this year with the algo at the maximum +100 level. Keybot prints a pre-scheduled number at 10 AM EST. US markets are closed tomorrow for Thanksgiving and will close early on Friday. The beat goes on.

STOCK MARKET BULLISH -- LONG -- CAUTION -- TURN MAY BE IMMINENT

Keybot the Quant remains on the long side with the bulls jamming volatility lower to send stocks higher. VIX fell through 11.14 so you knew that the bulls had the upper hand and then a fight occurred at the important VIX 10.67 level identified by Keybot and price failed below sending stocks higher. Isn't is fascinating the algorithm identifies key price points before they occur? VIX closed the session at 10.65 on the bull side of the key 10.67 bull-bear line in the sand. At the same time copper was falling but never fell enough to help the bears. Thus, the bulls slap the bears in the face with the drop in volatility. Slap, slap.

Same routine ahead. Bulls are on easy street and will send the stock market higher with the algo number pegged to the maximum and historic +100. Market bears need either VIX above 10.67 and/or JJC below 34.83. Volatility and copper remain the two parameters most impacting broad stock market direction currently.

If either VIX or JJC turns bearish, either one would do, and the SPX falls below 2578, Keybot will likely flip short. The market bulls have their sights set on SPX 2600 while the bears are praying for higher volatility and lower copper prices. VIX is at 10.27 in early pre-regular session trading and copper futures are trading positively. Bulls slap the bears in the face again. Slap, slap.

STOCK MARKET BULLISH -- LONG -- CAUTION -- TURN MAY BE IMMINENT

Keybot the Quant is on the long side as markets chop along sideways. The stock market is a coin-flip as evidenced by the algo number only 2 points above the signal line. The three key parameters controlling broad stock market direction currently are volatility, banks and copper as the previous comments highlight. The VIX came down to the 200-day MA at 11.15 and bounced. When that occurred you knew the bulls did not have the juice to take the stock market higher.

Bears need XLF under 26.00 and/or JJC under 34.79 for the stock market to begins selling off in force. XLF price came down to 26.00-26.03 on Friday and JJC down to 34.79-34.83, testing both levels that Keybot called out ahead of time but prices bounced off both of the key bull-bear lines in the sand so you knew that the market bears did not have the juice to take the stock market lower. Hence, sideways choppy slop. The S&P 500 has basically chopped sideways through the tight 2560-2590 range for the last six weeks.

Bulls need VIX under 11.15 to prove they can take stocks higher and if VIX falls below 10.67, stocks will catapult higher with the SPX leaping above 2600.

Bears need XLF under 26.00 and/or JJC under 34.79 to create stock market selling. If either parameter turns bearish, only one is necessary, and the SPX falls below 2578, Keybot will likely flip to the short side.

One of these three parameters volatility, banks or copper will flinch and that will immediately tell you the direction of the stock market ahead.

Keybot prints one pre-scheduled number this week on Wednesday morning. The stock market is closed on Thursday for the Thanksgiving Day holiday. Friday is a shortened session closing at 1 PM EST. Watch copper futures trading into Monday morning as well as listening for any news concerning the banks to provide hints on the path ahead for the US stock market.

STOCK MARKET BULLISH -- LONG -- CAUTION -- TURN MAY BE IMMINENT

Keybot the Quant is on the long side after more choppy action over the last few days. The algorithm is getting tossed around to and fro like a rag doll. The stock market direction is a toss-up as evidenced by the algo number and signal line at the same basic level.

The algo flipped short on Tuesday then whack; Keybot was smacked back to the bull side yesterday. The price action is sideways choppy slop with bull and bear traps. The Keybot algorithm program and actual trading take marginal losses on the last 2 trades. Keybot cycled from PSQ to DIA for the long side then to SH for the short side now in IWM for the long side. Both the algorithm program and actual trading is flat on the year. The benchmark S&P 500 is up a big +15.6% this year with 6 weeks remaining.

Volatility, copper and banks are dictating stock market direction currently. The VIX bull-bear line in the sand is at 10.67 and price is at 11.62 firmly above creating the negativity in stocks. You can watch the VIX 200-day MA at 11.14 which is a critical bull-bear signal line. Stocks will roll over and selloff as long as the VIX remains above 11.14. Bulls will fight back if the VIX drops under 11.14 and if price loses the 10.67 level, the SPX will launch above 2600.

Watch JJC 34.79 with price only 3 cents on the bull side at 34.82 creating lift in the stock market. Bears will rejoice if JJC drops below 34.79. Copper futures are trading flat.

Watch XLF 26.00 with price at 26.19 on the bull side creating lift in the stock market. Bears will rejoice if XLF drops below 26.00.

Thus, market bulls need to keep copper and banks buoyant while sending the VIX below 11.14 and 10.67. Market bears need to keep volatility elevated while sending either JJC below 34.79 and/or XLF below 26.00. If either JJC or XLF loses the level mentioned, either one would do, and the SPX drops under 2573, Keybot will likely flip short, hence the imminent turn notation remains in the title line. The beat goes on.
