1000 remains key level for INK CIN Index to overcome

Technical Overview by Nicholas Winton, Hedgehog Trader and @HedgehogTrader on Twitter

Thank you for joining us in a technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. In our last update of 2015, with the Index trading under support 1000 and its momentum indicators pointing downward, we suggested the Index might need to correct down to its lower Bollinger band in order to put in a bottom, just as it did in late August. It's interesting that the Index did just that, dropping just below its lower Bollinger band at 960 before rising nearly 4%.

Number Cruncher: Fifteen stocks only a Santa contrarian could love

 What are we looking for?

We are in the traditional Santa Claus rally season when stocks tend to rally after tax-loss selling abates.

Since beaten-down shares are prime candidates for a Santa rebound, today we are looking for the 15 top ranked INK Edge names that have the worst price performance. While there is no guarantee that the Grinch won’t steal the show and send stocks lower, today we assume that Santa will arrive on schedule.

Canadian mid-caps edge out US peers year-to-date in local currency

This morning we are doing a brief review of the major themes that we started out 2015 with in both Canada and the US. Our next market commentaries for INK subscribers will be on January 4, 2016 for Canada and January 6, 2016 for the US market when we take a look at what insiders are signalling for the New Year. We will, however, continue to update subscriber report pages in the meantime with changes in our indicators.

We started off 2015 noting that insiders in Canada were upbeat with respect to valuations offering the prospect of both a decent year for stocks and outperformance over the US. In contrast, we noted insiders in the US remained downbeat on valuations suggesting a patient approach to American equities was in order. While insiders were suggesting that valuations in the US Energy sector were improving, we warned that the potential for future losses could not be ruled out. Unfortunately, for investors in the sector, that turned out to be the case.

Clearly, it was not a sunny year for Canadian stocks in 2015. However, developments in the Canadian market were not nearly as horrible as the headline benchmark would suggest. While the S&P/TSX Composite Index has dropped 10.99% year-to-date compared to the S&P 500 Index off 2.59%, Canadian mid-cap stocks as measured by the INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index have not had it as bad, falling 4.59% (all returns are on a local currency price basis).

INK Canadian Insider Index staring at downward momentum

Technical Overview by Nicholas Winton, Hedgehog Trader and @HedgehogTrader on Twitter

Thank you for joining us in a technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. In our last update, we observed that even a small burst of upside energy could lift the INK CIN Index above the 1000 level, clearing a line of resistance that extends downward from mid-October.

The INK CIN Index looks positioned to turn higher

Technical Overview by Nicholas Winton, Hedgehog Trader and @HedgehogTrader on Twitter

Thank you for joining us for our weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Since our update last week when we observed the bounce off its lower Bollinger band, the INK CIN Index has consolidated in an incredibly tight trading range. And although the Index rose just 6 points to 995.88 for less than a 1% gain on the week, it is well-positioned to break higher, ending a streak of lower highs that began after it made its late October high.

INK CIN Index Bounces Modestly Off Lower Bollinger Band

Technical Overview by Nicholas Winton, Hedgehog Trader and @HedgehogTrader on Twitter

Thank you for joining us for our weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index.

Despite the Paris attacks and extreme negative investor sentiment, the INK CIN Index bounced off its lower Bollinger band, as we suggested was likely. The bounce has so far been modest, clocking in at around 2%. More importantly, the index still remains under the key 1000 level. The Index needs to make some headway this week in order to avoid having the 1000 level join 1020 as another tough-to-crack resistance level.
