Stock Market Trend Forecast March to September 2019

SPY Bounced, XLF and FXE Not So High

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012 May 22, 2012 - 05:58 AM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is just to give you a perspective on “why the bounce?” SPY bounced of yet another Orthodox Broadening Top trendline, just above daily Mid-Cycle support at 128.41. The current Broadening Formation has been forming since mid-February. Each of these formations attest to the pumping of liquidity on each downside breakout. Unfortunately for the Fed and its minions, this break-down has gone further than the others and now the previous formations offer resistance to any attempts to resume the uptrend.

The bounce may already be over and a drop below the Crash Trigger gives us a potential Head & Shoulders minimum target of 116.97,an average Fibonacci target of 112.11 and a new Orthodox Broadening Top average target of 99.33.

ZeroHedge writes, “Something different today. A dip was bought and kept a little momentum - aided and abetted by some late-afternoon desperation EUR buying correlation-help which dragged the Dow back over the magical 12,500 level.”

XLF tested its Mid-Cycle support at 13.25 and may have left us with a new Head & Shoulders neckline with a target that seems to agree with the Broadening Wedge formation. In addition, the minimum target may be beneath the Wave 1 low and yet another H&S neckline at 10.85. Once the lower neckline is triggered, the minimum target is 5.69. The question is, how quickly will this happen? The first pivot low may be as early as Thursday/Friday of this week. The second may happen near June 8.

I’m switching to an hourly chart to show that VIX did a very nice retest of its Head & Shoulders neckline today. It appears that the retest is over, or nearly so. This puts VIX in a position to rally 34% or more to its minimum H&S target. A rule of thumb is generally when the VIX rallies over 25, the market crashes, so this may be a confirmation of a pickup in the momentum of the decline.

FXI merely made a 17.5% retracement today. It also left us with a new Head & Shoulders neckline (still on the right shoulder of its massive H&S pattern). It almost seems pointless to put the new H&S neckline there, since it is so close to the larger one. However, it seems appropriate to know that there are multiple confirmations of the general trend.

UUP corrected after making a 5-wave impulse from its April 30 low. My suspicion is that the correction will be short-lived, since UUP is due for a Primary Cycle high on Friday.

Last week GLD made an early Trading Cycle pivot low. I had expected to see a low today. Instead, today’s pivot is at a high, so the way is now clear for a decline in GLD that could last through mid-June. A break of the Head & Shoulders neckline will erase all illusions about the uptrend in GLD.

Good luck and good trading!
