Stock-Markets

SPX

Last week we were looking for new highs on the SPX, the prior declines have all been corrective move so as long as that continues I don't see much in the way of any evidence to support a bearish reversal. Don't get me wrong I am now looking for a reversal but the market appears to be clinging on for dear life as it chops higher. This back and forth choppy price action is more and more supporting the ending diagonal idea that we have been tracking since the start of the New Year. It would need a strong advance above 2070SPX to cast doubt on the idea.


SPX Chart

So whilst it's a valid we will keep the idea as our primary idea. If I am correct about the idea, then we should be on the verge of a nasty decline, although to really support the idea of a move lower it would have to take out some key support areas at 2060 & 2040. It tried to break down early last week, but again the decline was a corrective looking move and we looked to buy the lows for a move higher. Above 2077 now favors a new all time high again, it's at that point we will look to flip to being bearish and sell against 2070SPX. Ideally we see a minor new all time high then an aggressive reversal. We don't have any evidence yet of a reversal, each time it tries to break down its showing a 3 wave corrective decline, that's bullish and each time it's done that the market has made new highs.

SPX Chart 2

So readers can watch for a new high that again fails to see any follow through that would offer a decent setup to sell the market, if you are unsure when or where to enter, come and join us and stay up-to-date with this idea and many more ideas.

VIX Analysis

I am not exactly a fan of timing the market using the VIX but I think in this case it may offer some strong evidence to support our current thesis on the US markets. I still think we can see that target area at 12.00 - 11.50 tested before it sets up for a larger move higher.

VIX Chart

Looking at the recent swings I can make a case that history maybe repeating itself, if the market is now at point 6 then we should be very close to a strong reversal and a move higher in the VIX, if that were the case then by default it should see the SPX move lower. As if volatility spikes, generally speaking US stocks tend to move lower.

VIX Chart 2

Taking a closer look at the VIX price action it's been wedging for a while now and I think it's getting very close to a reversal, if we look back at the last time it started to wedge it gave a heads up that volatility was about to spike, I think the same message is happening again for those that are looking for clues.

VIX Chart 3

Those that are ignoring this clue could be in for a surprise, as the VIX is moving into support and has an overall wedge look; I think it be a precursor to a spike in volatility that is lurking around the corner.

Gold

It's been a while since I last wrote about Gold, back in November we were looking for a potential major low to end a 5 wave decline from the 2011 lows, whilst we got a nice move, it failed short of the expected move, so we have had to adjust and allow for a new low under $1131. Currently I favor the market will likely make a new low under $1131, but ideally we see a bounce first towards $1250 to end wave [b] of wave 5, then setup for a move lower and test $1100-1131. The idea is wrong below $1142, if a break of $1142 then it's likely already moving lower and going to test the $1130-1100 area to end the suspected ending diagonal and the move from the all time highs made in 2011.

Gold Chart 1

A closer look suggest the current move is likely a correction against the prior decline at just over $1300, however I still think the bulls have a small rally left in them before it moves lower and test the prior lows made at $1131, that will then offer the bulls a great opportunity to buy and setup for a much larger move higher. It's getting on for nearly two years and Gold has move sideways/down. It's frustrated many of the hardcore bulls. Ideally we see a move lower to finally put the nail in the coffin in the last remaining bulls. Whilst many will be panicking if the market moves under $1131, we will be busy looking for buy setups.

Gold Chart 2

Crude Oil

Back in March 2014 many traders and the media were freaking out about the decline on oil, but what they failed to realize is that it spiked from a 4th wave thrust. Elliotticians once again were one step ahead of the crowd. We had a target of $40-42 for the end of wave 5 of [3]. The low came in at $42.02, so not a bad "guess".

Crude Oil Chart 1

Once we had enough gyrations in place I warned members not to be bearish here as a large rally was setting up. True to my word we now have the rally that was forecasted and we are now again back to the lower end of the wave [4] target. Many traders will have switched bias and got bullish, but it's now that were are turning bearish and looking for a move lower. If I am correct members will have a nice trade ahead of them to sell and look to try and ride it back under $40 to end wave [5].

Crude Oil Chart 2

We are looking for some sort of strong impulsive decline to confirm the reversal, so far we don't have that, but as soon as we do get the evidence we will look for a setup to sell. It has enough gyrations for us to be very cautious on the long side.

Until next time,
Have a profitable week ahead.
