Valuations not as favorable, limits Dow upside to 12,500.

|Includes: DIA, GLD, QQQ, SPY, iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT)
When I made my bullish call on October 4th ValuEngine showed that 93.5% of all stocks were undervalued. We end the month with only 71.1% of all stocks undervalued. Fifteen of Sixteen sectors are undervalued but none by more than 18.2% (Medical) and with Utilities slightly overvalued. Technical MOJO has taken over, which means that the Dow Industrial Average can trade up to my quarterly risky level at 12,507, but I predict that the Dow will not trade above its May 2nd high of 12,876.  The major equity averages have positive weekly charts favoring additional upside. The weekly chart for the yield on the 10-Year US Treasury favors higher yields given a close above my semiannual pivot at 2.414 which was tested last week. My quarterly and annual value levels are 2.669 and 2.690. This is a sign that the Fed’s “operation twist” has failed. Let’s see what Bernanke has to say Wednesday afternoon!
 
10-Year Note – (2.313) Semiannual, quarterly and annual value levels are 2.414, 2.669 and 2.690 with daily and monthly pivots at 2.280 and 2.222, and weekly, and semiannual risky levels at 2.191 and 1.672, which was tested on September 23rd.

Definition of MOJO – This is my term for technical momentum. I use what’s called “12x3x3 slow stochastic readings” from daily, weekly and monthly charts. The scale is zero to 10.0 where above 8.0 is overbought and below 2.0 is oversold.
