Oops, I Did It Once more! | Buying and selling Locations with Tom Bowley

I am positive most of you, by now, know that I am a scholar of historical past. 2023 performed out fantastically and largely based on its historic highway map. Listed below are a pair issues in 2023, with respect to the S&P 500, that would have been predicted just by being conscious of historic norms.


This fall Energy in Industrials and Financials

Industrials (XLI) and financials (XLF) LOVE the fourth quarter. I’ve pointed it out on many events. Throughout this secular bull market advance since 2013, financials have not outperformed the general market. Relatively, the sector has been roughly equal to the benchmark S&P 500. However the September via December interval is when the XLF has proven good relative power:


This is how the XLF has carried out relative to the S&P 500 since 2013:

  • January via August: -3.1%
  • September via December: +4.3%

Now try the XLF:$SPX relative chart:


It was like clock work.

Industrials (XLI) aren’t a lot totally different, although their power is clearly present in November. This is that very same 11-year relative seasonality chart since 2013, however this time that includes the XLI:

Let’s break this one down by the identical two durations of the 12 months:

  • January via August: -1.4%
  • September via December: +2.6%

And this is the chart:

It took a short while to get began, however that November/December explosion occurred completely into industrials’ seasonality candy spot.

October twenty eighth Via January 18th Most Bullish Interval of Yr

I do not know when you have been watching, however the correction backside printed on October twenty seventh. As quickly because the market opened on October twenty eighth, the S&P 500 exploded increased and it hasn’t appeared again. Take a look at this chart:

What modified on October twenty seventh to the twenty eighth? Critically, did something change apart from the flip of someday on the calendar? I’ve mentioned previously that late-October bearishness to November bullishness is like flipping a swap or just turning the chilly water to sizzling. Historical past nailed it – AGAIN.

The strongest October twenty eighth via January 18th interval EVER on the S&P 500 (effectively, since 1950) was in 1962-1963, when the S&P 500 gained 19.51%. The second finest since 1950 was in 1998-1999, when the S&P 500 gained 16.70% throughout this bullish interval. The third finest? Nicely, proper now it is 2023-2024. The S&P 500 is at the moment increased by 15.85% because the shut on October twenty seventh. If the S&P 500 closes above 4921 on January 18th, it is going to set a document for the most important acquire from October twenty eighth via January 18th – since 1950.

Now you are in all probability pondering that these sturdy October via January durations would doubtless result in numerous promoting after these durations finish, proper? I imply, my goodness, we would must be extremely overbought, identical to we are actually, proper? Nicely, you would possibly need to sit down, when you’re not already sitting.

Verify this out.

Of the TOP 20 BEST October twenty eighth via January 18th durations since 1950, 19 of 20 ended the following calendar 12 months increased. 13 of these 20 years produced double digit positive aspects! And of 26 October twenty eighth via January 18th bullish durations that gained 8% or extra, solely ONE subsequent 12 months fell by double digits. It was 12 months 2000 because the S&P 500 fell 10.14%. So I ask, the place does the danger lie now? With these sitting out, ready for a pull again or, worse but, a bear market? Or is it with people who purchase at present stretched costs?

Should you’re pondering this bullishness cannot final or it is not sensible to chase this rally, effectively, historical past suggests in any other case. Finally, nonetheless, the decision is yours.

Since I mentioned essentially the most bullish historic interval of the 12 months, I ought to point out that the weakest interval is from the July seventeenth shut via the September twenty sixth shut. Search for at that S&P 500 and take a look at the 2023 correction. When did it happen? Yep, it began in mid- to late-July and ran via September, even into October.

Historical past nailed 2023 in so many respects.

S&P 500 2023 Efficiency

Let’s make a journey down reminiscence lane, lets? This is the place the S&P 500 stood one 12 months in the past at present, on December 31, 2022:

Bear in mind? It was ugly. Do you bear in mind what number of analysts have been saying we have been heading decrease? What number of at the moment have been bullish? Are you able to attain 5 fingers on one hand? I can not. I felt like I used to be on a bullish island, all on my own. I do not actually care, although. I do not want others to agree with me. I am not making an attempt to observe the gang. As an alternative, I fully ignore the gang and observe my charts and my alerts. And I KEEP PERSPECTIVE always. It permits me to take a step again and make an unbiased name, based mostly on the info and RISKS at hand – not based mostly on the opinions of each media “professional”, most of whom do little analysis to again up their calls. Do you bear in mind what everybody was saying? This is a partial checklist…

  • Do not Combat The Fed
  • Now Price Cuts Are Coming (contradiction is okay on Wall Road, apparently we should not make investments when the Fed raises or cuts charges)
  • Go Away in Could
  • Breadth is Too Slim
  • Now Breadth is Too Excessive (once more, contradiction central – lagging breadth and excessive breadth are each bearish)
  • It is Solely the Magnificent 7
  • Runaway Inflation
  • Politics
  • Authorities Debt
  • Client Debt
  • Unfavourable Divergences
  • Trendline Breaks
  • Bullish Sentiment (I additionally love this one, as a result of sentiment remained extremely bearish in 2023 till November, for my part)
  • and blah, blah, blah

The place did I stand? Nicely, I put my status on the road at first of yearly, making a convicted prediction for the the S&P 500. On Saturday, January seventh, 2023, at MarketVision 2023, I argued my case for the S&P 500 to rise to 4700 throughout 2023, probably testing all-time highs on the S&P 500 close to 4800 and ending with a 23% acquire. Many laughed and thought I used to be loopy. The S&P 500 truly gained 24%, and I used to be off by 1%. My unhealthy. Now right here we’re, one 12 months later, and the S&P 500 simply closed out the 12 months at 4769 and examined 4800 all-time excessive resistance final week. Name me loopy, I do not care.

I am prepared for an encore.
