Two Indicators that are Acting Like It’s 2020

We decided to take a look at our Silver Cross Index (SCI) and Golden Cross Index (GCI) across the broad markets. They were startling, to say the least. As we all debate whether this is the end of the Bear Market of 2022, these two indicators suggest it just might be.

Our SCI measures how many stocks have a 20-day EMA above the 50-day EMA, and the GCI measures how many stocks have a 50-day EMA above the 200-day EMA. Those numbers have been steadily increasing and, in the case of the SCI, the increase has been nearly vertical. The SCI has been on a roll as more and more stocks have “silver crosses.” Notice how similar behavior was occurring at the end of the 2020 Bear Market.

Additionally, on the improving GCIs, we have an oversold bottom and positive crossover on all of them. The last time the GCIs bottomed in oversold territory, it was the end of the 2020 Bear Market.

Conclusion: We can’t say for sure that the bear market is over, but we are seeing compelling evidence on our DecisionPoint indicators that suggest it just might be. On the flip side, the SCIs are overbought, which could mean a market top ahead. If you haven’t checked out the daily and weekly $ONE RRGs, I suggest you do. DP Alert subscribers will see them and our analysis in today’s report as well as in EVERY DP Alert report.
