Why Whitewave Volatility

As the first qtr 2018 is nearly a memory, Why WhiteWave?

We’ve been a step ahead for over 40 years.

Wall Street would have you believe one cannot identify when the stock market is vulnerable to a correction.

Mainstream media experts would also have you believe you cannot identify low risk Long Equity or Index entry.

Why? Because they do not have a reliable repeatable process.

WhiteWave is an independent firm free of conflict of interest.

If you’re willing to do a little work you will be rewarded for your effort. We are more than happy to answer questions and assist with using our work to enhance your returns.

We write 2-3 daily updates to keep you abreast of market conditions as opportunities arise.

We communicate in short readable actionable missives.

The week of February 5th saw a sudden rise in volatility and a 10% decline in prices from the all-time high on January 26th. This sudden shift in market behavior caught many off guard. Well, of course it did!

Everyone had grown accustomed to fourteen months of calm. And the moment things started to shake a little, people freaked out.

Our clients have been ahead of the curve and days ahead of consensus.

Our proprietary risk models were able to identify the risks forming giving our clients time to take defensive measures to protect their portfolios.

Some trimmed long positions, some bought put options and others used short etf’s as hedges.

One RIA client shorted the Russell 2000 against long client positions.

Four days later on 2/9/18 that client successfully covered that short after reading out alert to cover all short positions.

That RIA repeated the process by executing another short via the SDOW for another 4%.

Yes, our process is repeatable.

Below is a bullet point chronology of our work since 4th qtr 2017.

  1. 10/1/17 our proprietary S&P 500 risk spreads broke out of a 20 yr. pattern flagging a 300-point upside move with a 2800 initial price target. 
  2. 1/16/18 the S&P 500 achieved its target @ 2800.
  3. We remained bullish the Indices with focus on the Nasd 100.
  4. We reconfirmed that the Nasd 100 had a 7000 Price target which it would print before volatility picked up.
  5. 1/24/18 Nasd 100 hit the 7000 target.
  6. This was extremely important because our Nasdaq risk model was approaching its 20 yr. high.
  7. Instruments have a 95% + probability of initial price rejection the first time into a multi decade level.
  8. 1/29/18 we warned in the Late Show of the increased risks and that Equity Indices were rolling over caused by the disruption of rapidly rising U.S interest rates. We alerted our RIA clients it would be wise to hedge Long positions they did not wish to sell.
  9. 1/30/18 we sent out an alert that we were going neutral the Equity Indices. 
  10. 1/31/18 we went neutral our Risk models which had been Bullish for a year!
  11.  2/5/18 WhiteWave went short-term negative Indices looking to sell mid-week rallies.
  12.  2/9/18 we confirmed the low with an intra-day note as the S&P 500 was trading into its 200 Daily Moving Average. The correction was over
  13. Daily Market Intelligence report 2/23/18 we illustrated why we thought the Wall Street pundits had lost the plot by calling for another big downdraft in the markets
  14. 2/28/18 we became concerned with AAPLE’s upside follow through fully expecting to see 168 before it went higher.
  15. 3/1/18 we went positive the Oil majors as PSX traded into its 200 DMA and reiterated
  16. 3/2/18 in the Midday Missive published @ 9:21 A.M. we went near term Bullish Indices off Risk On Indicators in the Currency crosses and remained in a Bullish stance through March payrolls data.
  17. 3/13/18 Indices and Risk spreads put in major topping patterns “ORL’s” coupled with Nasd 100/Bonds rejecting its 20 yr. resistance level and double topping.
  18. 3/19/18 we were looking for a mid-week high in the S&P 500 & Nasd 100 Indices. This mid-week failure led to the 200 DMA retest Friday 3/23/18 @ 2588 S&P 500 Futures & SPY @ 258.
  19. 3/23/18 DMI featured the trading strategy for traders world wide to capture an oversold bounce with risk parameters and the initial target for the rally.

Quarterly Matrix work will be sent this week.

It is the secret sauce for our success.
