Market Down, Oil Down

Bob Brinker's latest stock market-timing theory takes another hit this week.
For the week:

Dow down 2.8%, the biggest drop since June

Nasdaq down 4.7%, the biggest drop since January

S&P 500 Index down 3.2%, the biggest drop since May

According to Bob Brinker's "inverse correlation" theory that he began espousing a couple of months ago, oil prices should have risen, but just the opposite happened:

For the week, $Oil dropped $11.37 = roughly 9%

It sure looks like Oil and S&P are moving in tandem

  • For the month of July, the S&P declined 1%
  • For the month of July, the price of Oil declined about 12%.
  • For the month of August, the S&P gained 1.22% (8/29/08: 1282.83)
  • For the month of August, the price of Oil declined 6.94% (8/29/08: 115.60)
This week:

  • The S&P 500 Index declined 3.2%
  • The price of Oil declined......9%

This is much more pleasant to look at. 8~)
