Seasonal Trends. There are some very important things happening right now. Historically markets move up late in June through until the 1st few trading days in July. This is the Independence Day holiday trade. However, after that, things tend to go wrong. There tends to be a surprising event that always happens. This has happened 6 of the last 7 years. You get a spike in volatility, and markets have a difficult time. It looks like it is going to happen again this year. Seasonally the S&P 500 normally reaches a peak around this time of year. He is currently looking for the markets to be under some pressure. There are signs that the volatility has started to spike again. The Volatility Index (VIX) this week was up 20%, a huge move, implying that once again volatility is coming into the markets.

Gold. This looks very good, and has been up 6 weeks in a row. There was a breakout yesterday when it went above $1335 level, and looks like it is just getting started on a seasonality basis.

Canadian$? Chart shows the dollar bottomed in May/June, and subsequently went into an upward trend. There has been a little bit of weakness in the last little while, but nothing significant. Trend is still on the upside. Trading above its 20 day moving average. On a seasonal basis, the dollar is not so good at this time of year. The best time is from March right through until May each year. Right now it tends to be neutral relative to the US$.

2014-07-11 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart AC.B-T Air Canada (B)

On a technical basis, this is a bit mixed. Chart shows the trend is okay. Relative to the market, it is pretty well neutral. Historically this does very well prior to the Christmas buying season, from late August right through until usually around the end of November. Look for an opportunity to buy more in late August.

2014-07-11 WATCH Must be logged in to use chart AGU-T Agrium

Seasonality for fertilizer stocks is normally around the end of June through until the end of the year. However, fundamentals are not good. All the major fertilizer companies are expected to report significantly lower earnings on a year-over-year basis. Chart shows that the stock has just broken down through a key support position, and is now in a downward trend. Below its 20 day moving average, and significantly under performing the TSE composites. Watch for an opportunity after they report their 2nd quarter results at around the end of this month.

Technically it has just broken out above a reverse head and shoulders pattern, so it looks very, very good. Trend is on the upside, and is trading above its 20 day moving average. Outperforming the TSE. Everything looks good technically.

2014-07-11 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart CCT-T Catamaran Corp

Doesn’t have any good news on this. Chart shows the stock has established a downward trend. Broke a short-term support in the last couple of days. Underperforming the market, and is below its 20 day moving average. Wait until there are positive technical signs before Buying.

2014-07-11 WAIT Must be logged in to use chart CNQ-T Canadian Natural Rsrcs

Chart shows the trend has been upwards. This has a lot of positive technical things that you want to see in a Canadian energy stock. The 1st period of strength is late January right through until May. It then takes a break, and around the 3rd or 4th week of July it has another move on the upside. Look for this one to stabilize around current levels, but look for another opportunity to add as you get into late July.

Chart shows the trend is on the upside. Outperforming the market, and above its 20 day moving average. Seasonality for gold is just turning positive right now. Should be positive right through until the end of September.

Consumer discretionary normally underperforms the market at this time of year. Technically the chart shows it is on a downward trend. Performance relative to the TSE is negative. Also, trading below its 20 day moving average. It is coming down close to its longer-term support, and if it bounces from that level, it will be an opportunity to take another look. Seasonally these stocks do very well from October to at least the end of the year.

Love Don Vialoux's analysis of seasonal strength or weakness in regards to stock sectors. The patterns of seasonality that he points out are so interesting.
