Stock Market Crash - The NASDAQ's Days are Numbered Too...

Stock-Markets / Financial Crash Aug 09, 2015 - 08:51 AM GMT

By: Clive_Maund

When you attend the funeral of a dearly departed friend or relative it is appropriate to show due respect by wearing black. Similarly, in this update on the Tech Sector, which will very soon be on its deathbed, it is appropriate that we show due propriety and respect for the seriousness of the situation by presenting our analysis on somber black charts.

Some investors may have been fooled into thinking that because the NASDAQ Composite index, whose 1-year chart is shown below, is still in an uptrend and recently made new highs, that all is well with the sector, especially as it is outperforming the broad market S&P500 index which has been treading water all this year in a tight range, as shown on its 1-year chart a little further down the page, but as we will see on the long-term charts, all is not well at all, and both these indices are now set up to drop hard or crash.


We have already looked at the giant bearish Rising Wedge that is completing on the long-term chart for the S&P500 index in the article PREPARING FOR THE CRASH - S&P500 Index Analysis that was posted on the site on 31st July, and we need only observe here that it is already at the point of breaking down from this Wedge, a development that is expected to lead to a precipitous decline.

Now, I am sure most readers would agree that it is hardly likely that the S&P500 index should drop hard or crash, and the Tech Sector, as represented by the NASDAQ index, escape unscathed - on the contrary we would expect it to crash too, especially as it is another bubble, and a big one at that. Thus it should come as no surprise that the NASDAQ Composite Index is completing a giant bearish Rising Wedge pattern that parallels the one completing in the S&P500 index, as we can see on its long-term chart below. What this implies is that when the S&P500 index breaks down into a severe decline, the NASDAQ Comp is going to do likewise, and this being so, it behoves us to short (buy Puts) in the weakest stocks in the sector in advance of such a breakdown.

While on clivemaund.com we would never stoop to indulging in black humor, particularly when it involves a subject as serious as this, I can assure you that we are going to have one helluva "Wake" if what is expected to happen comes to pass. That's because we are going to be short the market in a big way using bear ETFs and Puts, and a range of suitable inverse ETFs has already been described on the site.

On a lighter note, if any of you want to print this out, and avoid the waste of ink involved with printing black charts, I can make a version with light colored charts, just let me know. Please note, however, that lighter colored charts will not alter the gloomy outlook for the market.
