Santa Crushes Bears by Delivering Stock Market Rally to Dow 18,030 New Closing High

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014 Dec 24, 2014 - 09:23 PM GMT

Barely a week ago it was beginning to appear as though both Santa had come early AND that the Dow had just missed breaking above 18k early December, before turning lower which with each 100 point Dow drop emboldened the bears to once more start fantasizing of mega-phone patterns accompanied by proclamations that the top was in and a new bear market had begun that reached maximum intensity just as the Dow put its bottom in at 17,067, doing an about turn rampage to a NEW All time high ABOVE 18,000 to close today (Christmas Eve) at 18,030. Thanks Santa!


if you have been following my analysis for the past few months than you will know that I had been expecting the Dow to break above 18k before the end of December before entering into a significant correction during January 2015 as indicated by the following articles -

The Dow's strong push towards a break of Dow 18k by early December had both put the market way ahead of its schedule into a significantly overbought state as the market required an imminent correction that was just failing to materialise, either the market corrects or it would be setting itself up for a far more significant AND earlier correction i.e. to commence BEFORE year end as I last wrote on 6th of December -

Technically the market needs to correct NOW, but the market is in the grip of santa mania as it appears determined to imminently set a new all time high above Dow 18k. In my opinion the stock markets relentless climb higher is setting itself up for a more significant EARLIER correction, which means that it is increasingly looking likely that the January correction could start BEFORE the end of this year.

As the MACD illustrates the correction to Dow 17,067 has acted to unwind much of the stock markets overbought state which means that the rally could continue to propel the Dow higher. However, on the basis of my existing in-depth analysis which dates back to 12th October, I just don't see it happening as we have achieved target and are now entering into the window for a correction which means with each new trading day gravitational pull on the stock market will get that much greater, ultimately setting the market up for a sharper break to the downside.

I will come back to an in-depth analysis for the Stock Market before the end of this month as my immediate focus is on getting the Gold price analysis and detailed trend forecast done and dusted, so ensure you are subscribed to my always free analysis to get both in your email in box on completion.
