Can Oil rise and Silver fall?

Realistically speaking, the answer to this question is both yes and no. If you understand that performance is different on different time frames. On one time frame (example 3 months) Oil can rise and silver can fall. While on another time frame (say 12 month) the difference between the two can narrow. So both respondents could say “see I was right?” This is what always happens in market. Both the respondents claim to be right because they don’t understand their different holding time frames. This is why the question itself is ambiguous.

Why don’t market participants see the ambiguity in any such question? Because they don’t expect accuracy in time. They don’t accept any tool or measure to illustrate polarized performance of assets in different time frames. Why don’t investors expect such accuracy? Is it because no such predictive tools exist or because they can’t exist?

The truth is that we never looked for such tools or measures. We assumed that if a trend starts for 6 months, it could very well persist for 12 months. Now this is where the problem lies. Most of us are momentum investors and just understand momentum. Most of us don’t understand cyclicality. So we never question that can performance of 6 months be different from performance of 12 months. Most of the time this is true, performance differ for different times. But there are rare occasions when two time fames could confirm the trend and this is when real strategies should be executed.

This is what is happening on SILVER (SLV) and OIL. Here we have illustrated Jiseki cycles for primary multiyear trends. Silver is a top performer on both multi week and multi month Jiseki cycles, while Oil is a worst performer on multi month and multi week Jiseki cycles. This means that Silver should underperform and Oil should outperform on both multi week and multi month periods.

The latest Alpha carries cases on Indian Oil companies, global commodities with levels, targets, projected trends and Jiseki cycles.

Our Jiseki Time cycles are seasonal patterns of strength or weakness in assets. They are derived from percentile rankings of 0 to 100. The higher the percentile more the chance for an asset to weaken and worst the ranking, better the chance for the respective asset to outperform. The current agro complex comparison puts Cotton and Sugar at the top and sesame and wheat at the bottom near 10%. Such low percentile rankings make Sesame and Wheat attractive holds. To latest report carries the Jiseki cycles for the agro assets with targets and projections for wheat, soybeans, coffee, sesame and coriander.

Is Silver going up or down?

Assets perform or underperform at a certain TIME. It can be hard finding that exact time, waiting for that exact TIME could be harder. Orpheus Jiseki (performance cycles) a.k.a Time fractals offer an integrated approach to look at TIME. For us any asset is at inflexion (when it reverses direction) less than 10% of the time, the rest 90% of the TIME the asset prices are trending or stagnating. However more important than timing the top or bottom of an asset is understanding what kind of top the trader prefers, a weekly top, a monthly top, an annual top etc.. Orpheus Jiseki can identify and classify such an inflexion point (bottom or top).

So is silver going up or down would mean more if we knew how long the precious metal is going down. Silver SLV intermediate Jiseki has reached 90% (a top ranking performer) and has a negative crossover. This suggests SLV is  ready to come down on a multi week basis. Even SLV primary multi month Jiseki is also near 80%. Multi month 80% readings are more significant than intermediate daily 90% readings because sustaining a multi year winning performance is tougher than sustaining a top quarterly performance. Apart from this Silver India is also in a Jiseki sell mode ranking at 90%. So for us silver is coming down for atleast  multi weeks now. Gold India and Palladium intermediate Jiseki is also negative.

On the energy front OIX (CBOE Oil Index) is a bit different from precious metals. Though OIX completing corrective is negative, which should push Oil 10-15% lower from current levels. On a multi month basis OIX is bottoming and should be hitting primary multi year lows soon. OIX is a multi year accumulate story. Oil has a 55% weightage in the DDP (Inverse commodity) ETF. On the short term DDP suggests higher for multi weeks (negative commodities) and on the longer multi year terms DDP has a negative Jiseki (positive commodities)

What about Solar?

There was a time when renewable energy was buzzword. The crisis took the wind out the renewable assets as the prices fell. Markets tried explaining the causes. But many conventional reasons failed to explain what’s happening in the renewable complex today.

The following are some positive conventional reasons backing up solar. First, they said it was easier to get solar firms in place than wind, because wind mills destroy the scenic beauty of landscape. The sun was more abundant than wind. Second, Alternative energy becomes valuable only when Oil stayed above 100.

 

The following are the negative conventional reasons challenging solar. Owing to its small scale generation, solar may not be able to play a large role. Climate changes leads to volatility in suntime creating further inconsistencies. Solar subsidies threaten investment in other renewables. Solar is still…

Time Triads, Time Fractals, Time Arbitrage, Performance Cycles are terms coined by Orpheus Research. Time Triads is our weekly market letter. The report covers various aspects on TIME patterns, TIME forecast, alternative research, emerging markets, behavioral finance, market fractals, econohistory, econostatistics, time cyclicality, investment psychology, socioeconomics, pop cultural trends, macro economics, interest rates, derivatives, money management, Intermarket trends etc.

 


Brent @ 140

 

While we are were busy with our trading life’s, Brent played possum from Jun 2009 till Nov 2010, around 18 months (oscillating around 70 to 80) and just in 90 trading days is ready to retest previous highs near 140.

Why this can happen? First an 18 month sideways action can easily lead to a 6 or 9 month upside. Second, Elliott 3 waves are the strongest and generally the longest. The ongoing wave structure suggests continued upside till 140. Third, Previous resistances should now be supports. The psychological 100 resistances we were looking at should become supports now.

Fourth, the previous uptrend took Oil from Dec 2008 low to 80 in Feb 2010. This was a fifty dollar upmove. A minimum target projection can take oil from 70 (May 2010 low) to 120. And 120 puts the all time high on Oil in reach. This is when we are expecting worrying equity to bottom and Oil to take a pause. Brent at 140 is plausible.

TGN VS. TEL VS. DAFOR VS. XNG

Transelectrica (TEL) is a 472 million dollar market cap Electric Utility, Transgaz (TGN) is a 1 billion dollar market cap Natural gas utility which also features in GICS oil & gas storage & transportation sector, Dafora is a Romanian small cap stock in Oil and Gas drilling and XNG is the AMEX Natural Gas Index. What do they all have in common? All these components are from the late economic sector. How do we find out which one is better for the months ahead and which one to hold and which one to reduce? Is this not what stock picking is about?

Rieki performance cycles have a simple objective answer for this query. Rieki can not only individually illustrate performance cycles of individual assets, but also illustrate seasonality in a pair. If you want to know which component of the pair should outperform the other you can use Rieki. And the best part is that you can make any pair combination.

In Fig. 1 we have illustrated the Rieki pair performance cycle between TGN and TEL. As one can see the cycle (red dashed) line was up from Jan 2010 till Jan 2011. This mean that TGN outperformed TEL by  almost 30% in the year. And now the Rieki cycle for the pair has turned down and also the relative performance line has broken a key trendline support. This means it’s time for TGN to underperform TEL. Since start of the year,  TGN has already underperformed TEL by 15% and we think there is more to come.

Now since both TGN and TEL are the absolute best performers and are overstretched, we need a stock that should outperform TEL. We paired Dafora with TEL (Fig 2.). What did we observe? We saw that after underperforming TEL by nearly 80%, Dafora – TEL Rieki is turning up. When this happens Tel should underperform Dafora. And where does Dafora stand globally? We paired it with AMEX natural gas index XNG. What did we observe?  XNG – Dafora Rieki is reversing. This means Dafora is potentially the best to accumulate while for TEL and TGN, the Rieki stock filter suggests reduce.

Copper vs. Dollar

In this latest report of Alpha Global we have looked at a combination of commodities with forex pairs. The charts below illustrate the Rieki performance cycle of Comex Spot Copper (.BRHG) and PowerShares DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund (UUP). The Dollar Index Bullish Fund Rieki has not reversed yet and is still bottoming while Copper Spot is rising and has reached the top 100 performance among our global coverage. Neither Copper or Dollar have shown any indication of reversal. However, if we extend the metals case to silver and gold, we observe that performance Rieki has already reversed. A similar exhaustion case is visible from Australian Dollar and Canadian Dollar. We need further price confirmation on dollar and the commodity complex to look for a primary reversal. But the intermediate reversal seem to be in. We have illustrated Crude, EURUSD Elliott counts and key levels.

ALPHA is a pair trading, long only - short only strategy and Numeric Ranking product based on TIME fractals. Time arbitrage, Time Triads, Time fractals are terms coined by Orpheus Research. The signals are carried over three different time frames viz. sub minor (2-3 days), minor (10-30 days) and intermediate (above 30 days). This is a daily signal product. The signals will be illustrated through tracker and running portfolios. Alpha can be used by fund managers for relative allocations, traders for leverage bets and high net worth clients for selective trades. This is a part of the time triads analytics developed by Orpheus Research.

Coverage: Forex (EUR USD, AUD USD, GBP USD, CAD USD, JPY USD, CHF USD, Yuan Rnmbi, Indian rupee, NZD USD), Energy (Crude, Natural Gas, Gasoline, Heating Oil, Petroleum, Carbon Emissions, Brent, WTM, Energy Index), Metals (Precious Metals, Tin, Zinc, Nickel, Copper, Platinum, Silver, Industrial Metals Index, Gold), Agro (Coffee, Corn, Grains, Livestock, Sugar, Wheat, Soybeans, Cotton), Thematic and Global Equity (Coal Mining Fund, Shipping Fund, Dow Industrials, Sense, Agricultural Equity, Water, Nuclear, Russell 2000, Russell 1000 USD), Bonds (US 30, US 5Y,  US 10Y, US 2Y, INR Bond Index, China Bond Index, Australian Bond Fund, Global Bond Index, Sweden Bond Index).

Performance cycles is a term coined by Orpheus Capitals. This is another name for time triads, time arbitrage, time fractals but expressed in terms of relative performance. It’s a bounded oscillator that moves in a range say from 1 to 30. 1 is top relative performance and 30 is worst performance. The idea is that performance is cyclical. A top performer will underperform in future and vice versa. A top relative performer is also the worst value pick and the top relative underperformer is the best value pick.

Time is a social construct and we see time through the life and nature around us. Understanding time can not only give a unifying theory to research of a few thousand years, but also help us understand the world we live in. Time evolves, oscillates and continues. Time comes before everything, but we don’t see it. We just feel it. We believe what we see and this is why understanding what we don’t see is a challenge. Understanding time could bring more than a conventional thought down, it’s a revolution, which could rock the very foundation of economic thought or the geometric structures Euclid laid down in 300 BC. We are at the start of the journey, but if time is indeed the real mathematics, we could see high accuracy in time forecasts.

Econohistory is the study of performance cycles between assets. Cycles are the generic name for time fractals. Performance cycles can be studied for any time frame, for as small as a tick data to multiyear time frames. This objective approach to performance cyclicality can explain why intermarket analysis is an area of study? Why bonds and commodities tend to be inversely related? What is the connection of Oil with world markets? Why the world watches DOW sometimes and sometimes a 500 point effect on DOW seems to have no impact? Why correlation between assets moves from near perfect at times to weak correlation at other times? Why the same news has different impact on a stock or market? Why equities and bond trend together and why the relationship decouples sometime? When will inflation become deflation, disinflation, stagflation or hyperinflation? When and why does gold outperform and underperform silver? Econohistory can objectively answer these questions, using performance cycles, time fractals and past data. Economic history is mathematical.

Long zinc, short coffee delivers 9% (7 days)

Despite starting counterparty odds, long zinc -  short coffee was up 9% and long AIGI (industrial metals) - short gold was up 14%. This week we are doing another pair rollover. We are closing the short heating oil leg and plugging the long AIGE (Energy Index) leg with Natural Gas. The Natgas Rieki is turning against dollar and also against Brent and AIGE. Our global asset rankings are benchmarked to dollar, so as natural gas moves up to top three, we don’t want to hold it as a naked asset anymore.

Alpha Pair Tracker


The other running pairs like short carbon emissions ETF and Crude, Short Carbon Emission and AIGI (industrial metals) delivered 1.6% and 8% since 15 July respectively. Long Euro – Short dollar is up 16% and still running. GBP USD and JPY gave first signals of exhaustion against dollar.

During an internal brainstorming session, the question which emerged was “Why should be just look at extreme divergence to short the best and long the worst?” and “Why can’t we say keeps the low divergence pair running, say between wheat and grains (No. 4 and 10)?”

The whole idea of playing extreme divergence is about accepting that one can try understanding that assets have diverged more than normal and the path of least resistance is to low or neutral divergence when for example coffee and zinc reduce the gap from worst and best to somewhere mid way. Working with low divergence pairs or non extreme pairs is like guessing how a backwardation will resolve, very tough.

On a final note, our top ranking coffee was number 2 this week. Sugar assumed the top ranking spot. What a better time to talk about sugar but now. Sugar was in the news and the majority is made to believe that there is no asset better than sugar today. For us at Orpheus, Sugar should not only underperform dollar, but also more than a few global assets over the next few weeks. The latest Alpha carries the pair tracker with updated signals and global asset rankings.

The Hunt brothers – II

The historical case of silver Thursday suggests cornering of assets is a cyclical event with probable consequences.

Cornering markets may have come off age, but even today traders dare to take large bets. How safe is it? What do historical cases suggest? Are there any signatures linked with such trades? What does numeric ranking of global portfolio suggest? Time does not differentiate between assets. If coffee is the best in a quarter compared to 54 global assets and Zinc is the worst, it’s easy to make a cross asset case, where we go long Zinc and short Coffee. We initiate the pair today.
