The signal for the Bull & Bear Tracker is now RED. The signal had been GREEN since June 1, 2018. See Equities article “ Bull & Bear Tracker Signal Back to Green”. The signal switched from GREEN to RED due to the volatility of the US Dollar Japanese Yen exchange rate increasing over the last 48 hours.

For the period that the signal had been GREEN the S&P 500 went from 2,718.70 to 2803.00 today July 20, 2018 at 2:00 PM US Eastern time. During the period that the signal was green the S&P 500 increased by 3.1%.

The trading vehicle that I recommended to trade the GREEN signal which is the SPXL performed significantly better than the S&P 500 and increased by 7.5%. The SPXL which is a triple leveraged long ETF derivative for the S&P 500 went from $45.26, as of the close of June 1st to $48.66, on July 20, 2018. Now that the signal is RED, the recommended vehicle to trade the signal is the SPXS, a triple leveraged short ETF derivative for the S&P 500. The SPXS is presently trading for $24.12 per share.

To learn about Dollar Yen exchange rate volatility being a leading indicator of the direction of S&P 500 and why the potential for a market crash is heightened while a RED signal is in effect l watch the 2-minute video below entitled “Dollar/Yen Leading indicator for S&P 500 Direction”. Also, my article “NIRP Crash Indicator Renamed “Bull & Bear Tracker”; Signal Now GREEN” is highly recommended. Finally, there are charts and graphs at, which provide additional information about the intimate relationship between the Dollar/Yen and the S&P 500.

For those investors who do not want to take minimal risk and not be exposed to a potential crash and yet have the potential for their portfolios to be safe and to also grow I am recommending the deployment of a 90/10 Crash Protection Strategy. For information on the strategy which is the only fail-safe strategy that one can utilize to protect their liquid assets from crashes, recessions and depressions view video below entitled “Profit From the Crash”.

Disclaimer. Mr. Markowski’s crash predictions are frequently ahead of the curve. The September 2007 predictions that appeared in his column stated that share-price collapses of the five major brokers, including Lehman and Bear Stearns, were imminent. While warnings were accurate, they proved to be premature. For this reason he had to advise readers to get out a second time in his January 2008 column entitled “Brokerages and the Sub-Prime Crash”. His third and final warning to get out, and stay out, occurred in October of 2008 after Lehman had filed for bankruptcy. In that article “The Carnage for Financials Isn’t Over” he reiterated that share prices for Goldman and Morgan Stanley were too high. By the end of November 2008, the share prices of both had fallen by an additional 60% and 70%, respectively — new all-time lows.
