SPX Fibonacci Study

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014 Aug 22, 2014 - 04:19 PM GMT

I have done a Fibonacci study of the SPX and wish to share it with you.

·         Minor Wave 1, which began at the June 24. 2013 low is 149.34 points in length.

·         Minor Wave 3 is 223.37 points in length and 1.4957 times the size of Wave 1.  Let’s call it a Fibonacci 1.50 times.

·         So far, Minor Wave 5 is 256.84 points in length, or 1.72 times the size of Wave 1 (truly a blow-off top).  In Fibonacci terms,

let’s make it a Fibonacci 1.786 times the size of Wave 1.  That puts it at 2002.86.  The Cycle Top resistance is at 2004.62, so it suggests that SPX may challenge its Cycle Top one more time before a reversal.  Then again, it may not!

·         In addition to the Cycle Top and Fib relationships, we also have round number resistance at 2000.00.    The Dow has been fighting with round number resistance at 17000.00 since early July, so we know that it has the ability to repel as well as attract.

Time-wise, Minor Wave 1 only took two months.  Wave 3 took 3 months.  Wave 5 took 6.5 months.  Again, we see extension in time and space.

At the Intermediate (Weekly) level, Wave (1) was 207.77 points in length.  Wave (3) was 343.83 points, making it 1.65 times the size of Wave (1) and exceeding the Fibonacci 1.618 multiple.  Wave (5) is 434.43 points in length.  At 2.09 times the length of (1) it also exceeded its Fibonacci target.  Wave (5) is also larger than the combined points in Waves (1) through (3) at 420.44 points.  In a more “normal” wave structure, the entire rally may have been finished somewhere between the 14-year Top at about 1620 to possibly 1770.00, which was hit in September 2013.  This is one of the aggravating things about this rally that was confounding.

On the flip side, the minimum target of Intermediate Wave (1) or (A) that we should immediately see from the top should be 1560.33.  These blow-offs unwind much faster than they are created, so let’s see what the next Panic Cycle brings us…

Regards,

Tony
