Stock Market Crash to Start This Morning!

Stock-Markets / Financial Crash Nov 16, 2012 - 03:34 AM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

The fractals are getting shorter, which means that the market is gaining momentum as it declines.  Let’s examine the fractals making up the waves in the chart. 

First, a point of clarification.  I view the October 5 high as the Orthodox high, although the cycles called for the high on September 14.  In my opinion, the Elliott Waves fell in line by producing a truncated 5th wave on October 5.


Starting from the September 14 high, there were 3 fractals to October 5.  Their lengths were 34 hours, 43 hours and 26 hours.

From October 5 to October 18 there were two fractals, the first was 34 hours and the second was 30 hours.

From October 18 to November 1, there were two fractals of 21 hours each.

Since November 1, there have been five fractals, each at 17 hours duration.  The last one peaked at 2:00 pm Eastern time today. 

Today is another Pivot day, so we may see a further change in the fractals going forward.  They might compress to 12.9 hours, 11 hours or possibly 8.6 hours.  The next Pivot day is Tuesday, November 20.  The one following is on Friday, November 23.  This leaves us with the probability of taking profits most likely on Tuesday or Wednesday early morning.  If the decline lasts until Thanksgiving day, November 22, there will probably be a hue and cry for the Fed to do something about it, so I don’t expect the decline to last after next week…the worst that may happen is that it could last until the Friday after Thanksgiving.  Pray that the officials don’t close the market for more than 15 minutes or a half hour.  That would make these calculations a bit more difficult.

I expect the crash to start tomorrow morning.  A panic situation usually resolves in three days.  My best guess is that, if the fractals measure 8.6 hours each, we should be done by Tuesday morning, with the brunt of the crash on Monday.  12.9 hour fractals may prolong the crash until Wednesday morning.  The May 6, 2010 Flash Crash fractal was exactly 8.6 hours long.  Last year’s August 1 through August 9 Flash Crash consisted of 4 fractals in the following order; 21 hours, 11 hours, 9 hours and 6 hours. 

There is no telling what combination we may see, so I will simply have to monitor the fractals to gauge the time.  The wave structure suggests there may be at least 3-4 more fractals left in this decline, so compression will be the name of the game next week.

In regards to distance, I fully expect to meet or exceed the October 2011 low at 1974.77.  However, there are some additional issues in regards to the Yen, the Euro and High Yield markets that may put even more liquidity demands on the market. Plus margin calls…you get the picture.  Again, my model suggests that, if the SPX declines beneath 1100, there may be yet another 200-point drop in store.   That may mean the fractals may be shorter in time, but longer in distance as the crash persists.

I have just about worn out this topic, so I’ll call it a day.

Regards,

Tony
