Stealth Stocks Bull Market, Sell in May and Go Away?

Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading Apr 26, 2009 - 06:11 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stealth stocks bull market that has soared by 27% on the Dow and 20% on the FTSE these past 7 weeks has left the bears battered and bruised after EVERY decline that 'MUST' signal the proverbial resumption of the bear market was subsequently BUSTED, with some of the herd piling in on the tail end of the rally these past few weeks with the bulk still awaiting the RETEST. To answer many requests for an update to may last article (5th April 09) of where next, this is therefore an interim update that aims to give my immediate term view on where the stock market could be heading. The full in depth analysis that will aim to map out the trend for several months will follow later, to receive this you email in box make sure to subscribe to my always free newsletter.


Stealth Stocks Bull Market Analysis Recap - Consistency and Certainty.

1. Stocks Bear market Bottom forecast - 20th Jan 2009 - Target 6,600. Warning that the bear market bottom WILL be accompanied by overwhelming and highly convincing bearish fundamentals that speculators / investors will need to ignore to prevent themselves from missing out on the BOTTOM.

2. Stocks Bear Market Target Fulfilled - 8th March 2009 - Dow 6526. Preparing for a spike higher that was expected to trigger the first of a series of buy triggers to start accumulating - As you MUST WAIT for Entry Triggers, so as to give the trades a greater probability of success, and again the message to IGNORE the media / fundamentals.

3. Stocks Stealth Bull Market Born - 15th March 2009 - Dow Bear Market Bottom confirmed on multiple buy triggers during the week - Warning to ignore the fundamentals or should I say fundamentalism, bearish commentary and in many cases double speak in favour to reacting to the ACTUAL PRICE movements.

4. Stocks Stealth Bull Market Carpet Bombs the Bears - 24th March 2009 - Short-term 33% Correction, before new stealth bull market highs. End year target 50% from 6470 i.e. 9,700.

5. Stocks Stealth Bull Market Closes above Dow 8,000 - 5th April 2009 - Psychology of investing and trading. There is no point everyone seeing the rally in a the rear view mirror if FEAR kept them from monetizing on it!

Getting straight to the point. Seasonal's ! - The seasonal tendency for the Dow is to sell off going into / during May is the most probable on the basis of the strength of the preceding rally and given this years mega rally, the probability of a severe downtrend is now pretty strong.

The anticipated target for the current bull market by year end is 50%, the move to date amounts to more than 54% of the target in less than than 15% of the time period which gives ample time for several reactions lower against the trend. Therefore the only question now is how deep could the downtrend be, in that regard we have price points, retracement levels, and the MACD indicator to look at.

MACD - The MACD indicator cross has given a SELL signal, at best this means sideways price action, but more probably a significant downtrend that will seek to correct the up trend from Dow 6470.

Trend Analysis - The rally has been strong AND powerful, but it is showing signs of running out of steam, this is evidenced by the shrinking gap between each up thrust following each correction with the most recent correction 'so far' failing to break to a new trend high which gives a risk of a lower high. The rally is tired folks, it needs to take a break.

Retracement Levels - 33% - 50% - 66% - The Dow has rallied from a trough of 6470 to a peak of 8190 totaling 1720 points, key retracement levels are 33% = 7,622; 50% = 7,330; 66% = 7,050. Therefore the minimum correction from the current swing peak is expected to carry between 7,622 to 7,330. Anticipating a rally to 8,750 this points to levels of 33% 8,000; 50% 7,610 - Which reinforces the target of 7,600, with probable overshoot lower implying 7,500.

Price Points - Immediate support levels are 7,800, 7750, and then 7,440. For the health of the stealth stocks bull market a correction should not carry below 7,440 this therefore implies support in the region of 7,500 to 7,440. Overhead resistance is clearly first at 8,190, then 8,400; with major resistance in the area 8,900 to 9,080. This implies the current upswing should continue into the area of between 8,400 to 8,900 with probability favouring 8,800.

Elliott Wave - My elliot wave interpretation implies that the market should continue rallying for another to 3 weeks to mark the end of the first impulse major wave towards 9,000. to be followed an A-B-C correction towards 7,500 for a larger wave 2 correction.

Swine Flu Black Swan ? - Swine fever is spreading, is this the big pandemic that we have been fearing all these years with the previous focus on avian flu. There is a good probability that the financial markets will discount the worst case scenario along the lines of avian flu a few years ago early next week, therefore this brings in an immediate bearish influence against what looked set as a continuing rally into early May which implies greater volatility than expected depending on the progress of the virus. Though amidst the overall gloom big pharma that produce treatments should rally.

Conclusion - Immediate term conflicting analysis, will there be a continuing rally into early May or not ? Clearly early week will be weak and a lot now depends on whether the support of 7,800 holds, the 280 point gap between the last close and support should give the market plenty of swine flu room to breath, it is a tough call but after that early week wobble, I would go with a continuation into early May to set up for the main move which is for the significant correction that targets a decline of about 14% or Dow 7,500 from 8750. If 7800 fails early week that implies Dow 7,100. So just as the herd is starting to pile in the smart money will be positioning for a significant correction and importantly the move will be TRADEABLE, none of these 1 or 2 day falls that have suckered the bears in during the rally, but for a sustained down trend though swine flu may bring this forward to the start of the week. Note this is an interim update, my in depth analysis will attempt to more accurately map out the Dow swings of several months so make sure your subscribed to my always FREE newsletter to get this on the day of publication.

bond crisis

Hi Nadeem.

AEP talks of the volume of bonds to be issued this year and the market appetite for them, with some countries literally going broke / icelandic ! Others with perhaps higher interest rates as a result. Do you see this as affecting what you are seeing ? thx. Excellent writings as ever.
