Did We See Stock Market Cycle Top Last Week?

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014 Jan 20, 2014 - 03:30 PM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Stock-Markets

I have been reviewing my long-term charts and have been updating them. I was surprised when I discovered that today (January 18) is exactly 5.16 years from the November 21, 2008 low in the NDX. I have often been referring to the NDX Cycles, since they seem to be much more accurate than the Dow/SPX Cycles. The deviations from the measurements above are often within 3 days and no longer than 8 days, so this is a wonderful monitoring chart. I am constantly amazed at the relationships between the Cycles and the Waves.


Here is a closer look at the past 7 years in the NDX. As I scaled down to the Elliott Waves, I got another surprise. These “Cycles” worked in Fibonacci sequences! They also came with deviations of no more than 3 to 8 days. Of course, I was measuring the Elliott Waves and not the Cycles themselves, but they also fit. Allowing for rounding errors, the current blue Cycle is almost exactly 50% (1.19 years) of the last Fibonacci Cycle.

Now let’s apply these Cycles to the SPX.

Here are the same Cycles with the actual measurements. The keys to the lack of clarity in the SPX cycles are:

1. The Decline from January 5, 2009 to March 9, 2009 appears clearly corrective, especially so on a weekly chart.

2. Many Elliotticians, including the best of them, viewed this decline as an impulse. This also leads to calling the entire decline from October 11, 2007 to March 9, 2009 an impulse. As a result, they dismiss the Orthodox Broadening Top of Grand Super Cycle degree, which implies to many (lesser-trained) Elliotticians that the bear market may have already been over in 2009. I believe that neither conclusion is correct.

3. Many higher-degree Cycles ignore Wave [B], especially on the larger-degree Cycles. Instead, they measure the entire Elliott Wave, whether it be impulsive (1-2-3-4-5) or corrective (A-B-C). You can see that clearly in the blue Cycles shown in the chart. That is why many Cycle calculations can be subject to error, especially in a corrective bear market such as this. We naturally gravitate toward the lowest point of the year to start our Cycle measurements. That may be why our Cycle measurements from March 9, 2009 have been faulty. With few exceptions, the time span involved in a Cycle divided by 4.3 must not be a complex number in order to be valid.

Conclusion:

1. The time span from November 21, 2008 (orthodox market low) to the present is 5.16 (4.3 * 12) years.

2. The time span from the October 30, 2007 high (NDX) to the November 21, 2008 low is 1.075 years (12.9 months).

3. The next projected major Cycle turn date is October 1, 2015. That is almost (within 4 days) 1.72 years from last week’s peak on January 15. This suggests that the Cycle turn may already be underway.

4. This may set off one of the most devastating deflationary declines in stock market history, since it may be a Fibonacci 1.618 times greater than the 2008 decline in time. It may also be that number in magnitude as well as time. Using the same measurements, that may give a potential target for the SPX of 381.00. I am not the only one calling for that target.

The next near-term Cycle turn date is February 24. At that time, the US Dollar and the VIX may see new highs, while US. Equities, China Equities, EuroStoxx, Crude Oil and Gold may see new lows by then. Given the massive Broadening Tops in most of the stock indexes, it should be no surprise to see a 25-30% decline, as well. This decline may take 26 to 30 market days, which may be twice the 13 market days it took for the flash crash ending August 9, 2011, which wiped out nearly 20% of the market equity.

As you may surmise from my Cycle calculations, however, Cycle Wave I of Super Cycle Wave (c) may not be over until the end of June. That would be .43 years from this week.

Tony
