Stock Market Rally, Did S&P 13.74 Point Rally Finish the Move?

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere were few "fundamental" reasons to be bullish on U.S. stocks on Friday morning (June 15).

If anything, the news that the U.S. unemployment rose in 18 states in May sounded downright bearish. But stocks rallied anyway -- for a seemingly unlikely reason, explained the pundits: Because all the bad news lately makes it likely that the Fed will step in again.


(Just as a side note, how many times did the Fed "step in" in 2007-2009 while the DJIA was dropping from over 14,000 to below 6,500? But hey, that's ancient history, and besides -- "it's different this time," right?)

From an Elliott wave perspective, there was another reason for the June 15 rally: the S&P 500 had some unfinished technical business on the upside. Here's what the editor Tom Prindaville wrote on Friday morning in EWI's U.S. Intraday Stocks Specialty Service (try it free now, during June 14-21 FreeWeek):

S&P 500 (Intraday)

Posted On: Jun 15 2012 9:30AM ET / Jun 15 2012 1:30PM GMT

Last Price: 1331.33

Trade pushed beyond the 1319.74 level yesterday...[which] is significant because it implies that, minimally, the S&P wants to take a closer, more deliberate look at 1338, and the overall proportionally of the recent Elliott wave action backs that up. For today, persistence atop 1319.74 is needed to see the very near-term trend up with a minimum upside target of 1338.32.

The S&P 500 closed trading on June 15 at 1342.84, exceeding the bullish price target U.S. Intraday Stocks Specialty Service gave on Friday morning by 4 points.
