The Hindenburg Omen – Is it here yet?

The Hindenburg Omen – Is it here yet?


The Hindenburg Omen was a proposed charting pattern, named after the Hindenburg disaster of May 6, 1937.


The pattern functions on a combination of technical factors that attempt to measure the health of the NYSE, and by extension, the stock market as a whole. The goal of the indicator is to signal increased probability of a stock market crash.


The rationale is that under “normal conditions” a substantial number of stocks may set either new annual highs or new annual lows, but not both at the same time. As a healthy market possesses a degree of uniformity, whether up or down, the simultaneous presence of many new highs and lows may signal trouble.


Theoretically, it could be applied to any stock exchange.


Criteria include:


The daily number of NYSE new 52-week highs and the daily number of new 52-week lows are both greater than a threshold (proposed at 2.8%)


The NYSE index is greater in value than it was 50 trading days ago – 50-day Rate of Change (ROC) should be positive. Originally, this was expressed as a rising 10-week moving average, but the new rule is more relevant to the daily data used to look at new highs and lows.
At a recent event that Gavin Holmes – CEO of TradeGuider Systems LLC, spoke at in London, it was pointed out that the criteria for The Hindenburg Omen were recently met, however, if you have read Gavin’s book “Trading in the Shadow of the Smart Money” you will understand that he uses the Wyckoff Method and Volume Spread Analysis to predict market movement, just as he predicted the collapse in Gold in late 2011, and that the major indices would make record highs in 2017.
Gavin will show you how to correctly identify The End of a Rising Market, which will confirm The Hindenburg Omen, and how to identify a Shakeout in the markets when the news is very bad.

On Tuesday TradeGuider Systems will be launching the new Wyckoff / Williams stock trading investment strategy that uses options as a hedge when buying or selling common stock. The strategy is discussed in the latest book on how to trade and invest using Wyckoff / VSA entitled “Supercharge Your Trading & Investment Account With Wyckoff / Volume Spread Analysis” by Danny Younes which I highly recommend.
