Stock Market Black Monday Crash Fizzles Out, Next Black Tuesday?

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015 Aug 25, 2015 - 01:24 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat


The Stock Market Black Monday Panic CRASH that the mainstream press and BlogosFear has been focused since Friday's 3% plunge never materialised. A 3.5% closing drop whilst not good for those long the market, nevertheless is NOT a CRASH. Of course the latest drop of 3.5% comes on the back of a 10.3% retracement from the Dow's RECENT all time high which puts the Dow now down nearly 14%.

So the stock market is in the midst of a Significant CORRECTION, but there is no justification for BLACK MONDEY CRASH, PANIC headlines that the mainstream broadcast news media has been running with ALL DAY. Though I am sure those desperately seeking a CRASH, perhaps China style will now eagerly look forward to Tuesdays open for a possible BLACK TUESDAY, failing that there's BLACK WEDNESSDAY, and then there's Thursday and Friday followed by weekend trips to the malls and beach to once more next week look for a Black Monday.

In fact I will stick my neck out and say probability favours the Dow Closing significantly HIGHER on Tuesday!

Meanwhile the China stock collapse continued Monday with the Shanghai dropping near 9%, which as my analysis of 5 weeks ago stated to expect far worse to come, so it's what the western stock markets are battling against i.e. a western bull market that's trying to keep afloat amidst a drowning China pulling at its legs.

China Stock Market Forecast Conclusion

Pulling all of the threads together implies that the current rally is corrective, following which the SSEC bear market looks set to resume with a vengeance with the SSEC targeting 2,500! Which is quite some distance from its last close of 3877.

As for what happens after SSEC 2,500 is less clear, I am leaning towards probability favouring a dip to 2,500 being a panic spike that soon reverses higher and resolves to base building between 3,000 and 3,500 for the remainder of 2015. However, if the spike low rally fails then that could yet trigger FURTHER panic that plunges the SSEC into a deeper trading range of 2,000 to 2,500 for several years.

So the bottom line is that there is far worse to come for China investors. In fact the china bear markets only about half done!

The China SSEC close of 3209 is still some way from my probable target for a spike low of 2,500 which means to expect more bad news out of China.

My next in-depth analysis due to be completed this week will seek to update my existing long standing trend forecast for 2015 as excerpted below. Where I will seek to answer key questions such as -

Is the china stock collapse a warning of what is in store for western stock markets?

Could China do irreparable damage to the 6 year old stocks bull market by destroying bullish sentiment?

What if anything could support the market now? Corporate profits?

Does this mean the Fed will abandon raising interest rates?

So is it time to sell ALL stock holdings or a buying opportunity?

Existing Forecast

03 Feb 2015 - Dow Stock Market Trend Forecast 2015 by Nadeem Walayat

The Dow resolves to a bullish Elliott Wave pattern i.e. implies that the Dow should now embark on a trend to a new all time high, probably before the end of March! So contrary to much of the building picture so far. Thereafter suggests a summer ABC correction back down to around 17,500 to coincide with "Sell in May and Go Away".

Dow Stock Market Forecast 2015 Conclusion

My final conclusion is for the Dow to spend the first half of 2015 in a wide volatile trading range as it continues to unwind the 2014 bull run and sets the scene for the next series of bull runs to new all time highs. I expect the Dow to have started its bull run by early August off of an summer low and then continue into the end of the year, punctuated by an October correction low. I further expect the Dow to be trading well above 19,000 during December 2015 and probably above 19,500, before closing at around Dow 19,150 for a 7.5% gain for the year as illustrated by the following trend forecast graph for 2015.

Dow Stock Market Trend Forecast 2015

The bottom line is don't be frightened by first half weakness, yes it may look grim if we see the Dow trading under 16k, but all it would represent is a deeper buying opportunity before the market resolves to above Dow 19k.

1. Forecasts are always rough road maps against which to measure strength and weakness, if they were always exact then I would be a multi-billionaire by now.

Investing is riding out the peaks and troughs.

Trading is reacting to price movements in real time.

2. Longterm fundamentals matter, short-term they don't instead its momentumn
