August Update

                                                   Forecast

Our August view of the market condition was that the Indices would remain in a Bullish trend. We maintained a Risk On bias with a focus on large cap technology. Currently, we are of the opinion that Industrials and Dow names will play catch up. World capital flows remain U.S. centric and we continue to opportunistically buy breaks in sectors and names of interest.

August volatility did not disappoint providing buying opportunities on two 50 + point breaks in the S&P 500, which is exactly what we were looking for.

No system is perfect, but our process is reliable and repeatable with models designed to improve the probability of success. Whether you are a day trader or long term investor, we can help you stay ahead of consensus.

                                                   Context

As is typical with market corrections, they seemingly come out of nowhere catching most investors off-guard. This most recent correction which began late January was no exception. However, clients of WhiteWave were forewarned with enough time to prepare. Why? Because WhiteWave has a reliable and repeatable process developed over a forty year period.

Most recently, our proprietary Risk Models were able to identify the risks forming in January 2018 suggesting a very high probability of an increase in volatility. This gave WhiteWave clients sufficient time to take defensive measures to protect their portfolios depending upon their trading style. Our clientele consists of Retail Investors, RIA’s, and Hedge Funds; each with a different approach. Some trimmed long positions, others bought Put options while others used Inverse ETFs as a hedge. Regardless of their approach they were prepared and profited from our process.

The WhiteWave process employs elements of price, volatility, Matrix Levels, risk spreads, among others, across multiple duration. We measure and record the data for U.S. stocks, Bonds, Currencies, Oil, Gold Commodities, and Foreign Stocks & Bonds.

Our models enable us to distinguish between a market correction vs. a bear market. Throughout 2017 when many continually called for a market top, our models kept long-only and RIA clients invested through January 2018. At which point our models detected rising risks as described above. For active traders our intraday alerts provide trading levels for day-traders and those wishing to trade counter-trend moves.

Thanks to your Daily Market Intelligence reports I am becoming much better trader. There is no BS there! Just great down to the point analysis.

Hi Judd,
Thanks for the update.
Please know, I appreciate your spot on reports.

Thanks Judd
I am hanging on every word you write – great call in yesterday’s DMI on the P&F 50 that showed a short term double top.  This stopped me from going long on a trade on Thursday which dropped.

Regards
Dallas

All my best,
