The view from Alert HQ --

A week can sure make a difference in this market. Last week's post referred to SELL signals piling up all over the place. I'm happy to report that this week's post can point to a resurgence in BUY signals.

The fastest moving signals are firmly bullish now. Swing Signals, Trend Busters and the Alert HQ signals based on daily data are all showing a big majority of BUY signals and very few SELL signals. We are seeing that the majority of gaps these days are to the upside.

The slower moving indicators like the Trend Leaders are lagging. The Trend Leaders list has stopped shrinking but it has a long way to go before it hits levels we are used to seeing during rallies. The Alert HQ signals based on weekly data are likewise not as bad as they were but are still showing significant numbers of SELL signals.

All in all, it looks like the ship is slowly changing course but, to mix metaphors, we are not out of the woods yet. So many stocks, despite turning up this week, still have to convincingly break above their 50-day moving averages. Whereas the 50-DMA used to provide support, now it provides resistance.

In any case, I am hopeful that this pullback is nearing its end. If our analysis is correct, many stocks are at good entry points now and Alert HQ has identified those that are on the move. Don't invest without checking Alert HQ first!

Brazil - in a bubble or on a roll?

A couple of years ago, no one recognized the real estate bubble even though it was under everyone's nose. Now, analysts and bloggers are seeing bubbles everywhere they look. One of them, they say is in Brazil whose Bovespa stock market index has doubled in the last 12 months. Does the bubble accusation hold water? I don't think so and here are 7 reasons why Brazil is by no means a bubble economy: Exports have held up over the past year thanks to demand from China for Brazil's soya exports and iron ore. This was helped by the the Brazilian government's drive to improve trade links with Asia and Africa. Export diversification, spurred by a more active trade policy and increased focus on "south-south" trade under current president Lula, helped mitigate the decline in demand from OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries A "sensible" economic framework has been in place since the 1990's. This has included inflation
