Is Stock Market Correction Over?

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014 Feb 16, 2014 - 06:37 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

The stock market (Dow) last week confounded the heights of a another new bear market rhetoric by bouncing to close decidedly back above 16k at 16,154, this despite a week of bad economic data such as a suprise fall in industrial production of 0.3% against expectations for a 0.2% increase (polar vortex bad weather effect). Off course for the perma-bear crowd the weeks rally just represents a minor correction to further short into. Therefore was last weeks rally a last gasp before the great bear market resumes? Or was it the end of what amounts to a relatively minor correction that signals the resumption of the stocks 'stealth' bull market?


My last look at the stock market of 2 weeks ago concluded in the following trend expectation:

03 Feb 2014 - Stocks Bull Market Over? Are the Bears About to Break...even?

The current stock market correction looks set to attempt to revisit 15,000. How close it gets to 15,000 I can't tell, perhaps half way, just that the correction is not done to the downside. Following which the price chart implies that the Dow will enter an upwardly sloping trading range that would target a NEW all time high. However given the nature of trading ranges it is difficult to say how many swings it would take for such an outcome to occur, i.e. the last such trading range comprised 7 swings before breaking higher. This one could be quite brief and just comprise 2 swings as indicated by the chart, which could imply a New Dow high by early April, though that does not mean that the Dow would be able to hold the high as it could remain in the upward sloping range for some time which implies Sell in May and Go away as probable.

So to answer the question - Is the stocks bull market over ?

NO ! No sign whatsoever that this (what people decades from now will look back on as being the greatest bull market in history) bull market is anywhere near being over!

The subsequent price action closely matches my trend expectations for the Dow to bottom around 15,250, and therefore implies that the correction of just 8% should be over. Can you imagine all that doom and gloom that surrounded what amounted to just a minor 8% correction!

In reality, I would have liked the Dow to spend a little more time to the downside by extending a little further lower to perhaps down 10%, i.e. to give the bears a longer noose to hang themselves with. This translates into expectations for a slightly more volatile up-trend going forward towards a new stock market all time high by early April, at which time I will compose my next in-depth analysis and concluding trend forecast. Ensure you remain subscribed to my ALWAYS FREE Newsletter to get this analysis in your email in box.

The bottom line is that this was a relatively minor and healthy stock market correction to help dissipate the froth that had built up during the preceding rally to new all time highs and which now sows the seeds for the next new all time high by early April.

Your getting bored with the housing market analyst.

yahoo contrary indicator.
Nadeem,

your above analysis that stock correction is far from over is furhter corraborated by today's Yahoo finance headlines - "Will Ukraine kill the bull market?"

The crisis in Ukraine has the hallmarks of a Black Swan event -- one of those unforeseen shocks that keep investors up at night. But even though stocks around the world were falling Monday, several experts think it won't have a lasting effect on Wall Street.


In essence this means Bull market is not over. I am staying long in my 401K stocks. Keep doing your good work here, with helping us layman
