1. 1000th Special report: How the "Fed Juice" affects the markets?

For years, I have been voicing my frustrations with my colleagues in terms of what I think happened after 2008. It seems to me that the fed, since the 2008 crash, feels like it's job is to support the stock market....not sure when this happened but that is how I personally feel. In return, stock indices and other markets simply don't react as well to traditional trading methods and technical analysis. Instead they react to the FED... So for our special 1000th issue of our newsletter, I decided to share the following valuable article by my colleague and client, Shane Smoleny about the “Fed Juice”, how it affects the markets and perhaps how instead of us getting frustrated, maybe learn to follow the juice......


Background: Shane Smoleny is registered CPO and CTA. He has a bachelor’s degree Mechanical Engineering and master’s degree Biomedical Engineering. He was a Physics instructor for 12 years and applies these principles to develop models for financial markets. He is seasoned financial market research analyst who has created a variety of market tools to get an understanding of what's really going on in today's fast-paced markets. These tools include technical analysis, planetary cycles, planetary speed index, and of course the Fed Juice. He provides a daily trading newsletter where he posts information on 10 different commodity markets daily (including the Fed Juice).

Since 2009 Its a "Whole New (Fed) World"

Retail trading has exploded in popularity since the 2009 market lows. We have seen an unprecedented bull run for almost 11 years now. But what most people don't realize is that the Federal Reserve is completely responsible for this rally. In 2008 as the market was approaching lows the Fed began experimenting with increasing their balance sheet (QE 0). But in 2009 they began the “official” purchase program of US Treasuries and Mortgage-Backed securities known as Quantitative Easing (QE 1). Ever since that point, the market has shifted in its basic character. Traditional measurements such as sentiment, technical analysis, seasonal patterns, and market cycles have shifted. This is why it is absolutely critical to have an objective measurement of the Fed's daily activity and its impact on the markets. This is why I created the "Fed Juice" which tracks this exact influence on the markets. For some, it is hard to believe that central banks can have such a strong influence on markets. However, when we look at the markets in terms of the Fed Juice the relentless rally in markets begins to make sense. Below is a weekly chart of the S&P 500 (white) vs the Fed Juice (red). The Fed Juice is surging to all-time levels and the market is following.
