World Markets Are in SyncStock-Markets / Financial Markets 2016 Feb 10, 2016 - 03:36 PM GMT
In order to understand what is happening to SPX, we must also look at the other major indices to gain a perspective.
Yesterday the Nikkei declined to, but below a major support, otherwise known as a head & Shoulders neckline. This morning I can say that the Nikkei Index broke that support and is poised for the follow-through.
The Cycles Model suggests a Primary Cycle Pivot (low) this weekend. That suggests a possible 23% decline in the next two + days. Since the Pivot low happens on the weekend, the decline may “bleed over” into Sunday night.
The EuroStoxx 50 Index bounced to 2818.61 this morning as I write. This “touchback” of the Head & Shoulders neckline is acceptable and will relieve the oversold pressure enough for another plunge.
The Cycles Model suggests a Primary Cycle low on Friday, with a possible extension to Tuesday.
The SPX Premarket has bounced back to its smaller Head & Shoulders neckline at 1872.00 and its Cycle Bottom resistance at 1877.81. The retracement now appears complete and the decline has begun. A 38.2% retracement would terminate at 1873.82. I have re-labeled the Wave structure. After further thought, there doesn’t appear to be enough time for a more complex decline.
What prompted this was the memory of the October 10, 2008 Wave (3) bottom, which did not quite reach a massive Head & Shoulders target at 825.00. Instead, it bottomed at 839.50, causing me to delay taking profits. The SPX rallied 10% in less than an hour of profit taking.
I also wish to correct the timing that I had laid out yesterday evening. Depending on whether SPX makes a new high or yesterday’s high remains, a 17.2 hour Cycle will last until 11:00 am to 12:00 am on Friday Morning. A 21.5 hour Cycle may last until 3:00-3:30 pm on Friday. Today is a Primary Cycle Pivot and Friday is the next primary cycle Pivot, which may define both the top and bottom of Wave 5 of (3) of .
I also changed the EW structure simply because there is not enough time to complete anything more complex.
TNX is challenging its 2-hour Cycle Bottom, but doesn’t appear to have overcome it. This suggests at least a mild pop in the SPX. At this juncture, it appears that yesterday’s high in the SPX will stand.
WTIC has just made a new low at 27.62, beneath its daily Cycle bottom at 27.67. It appears that crude oil two potential bottoms this week. The first Primary Cycle Pivot is today and the second on Friday. If it makes a new low beneath 27.56 today, then we will be expecting its Master Cycle low on Friday.
