KBW Bank Index Extended Correction

Companies / Banking Stocks Apr 14, 2017 - 09:33 PM GMT

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

Companies

KBW Bank Index is an economic index consisting of the stocks of 24 banking companies delivering a direct exposure to the banking sector and  offering a targeted view to a unique corner of the U.S. financials sector. The top holdings Banks of the index are among the biggest financial institutes in the world and most of them will report earning during this week ( Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America). These companies have a big influence on the financial sector that can be measured by the ETF (XLF), which was up 30% from last year until last month, we mentioned in our previous financial article that XLF was reaching an inflection area which provided the expected pullback.


How this move is affecting the Banking sector ? Let’s find out by using the Elliott Wave Theory to analyse BKX.

KBW Bank Index Elliott Wave View

BKX made 5 swings bullish sequence from 2009 low which is different from the 5 impulsive waves used in Elliott Wave Theory. The advance is a part of the double three structure that KBW Bank Index is doing and after reaching the 61.8 – 76.4 fib ext area it started the 6th swing pullback against 2016 low. The retrace in wave ((X)) would ideally reach the 50%-61.8% Fibonacci retracement around 78.11 – 72.94 area before BKX can resume it’s move to the upside. However market isn’t perfect and we can’t determine how the pullback will unfold exactly so even a small 3 waves pullback can be enough to end it there.

To determine the potential pullback area, we take a look at the daily chart as the Index ended the 2016 cycle at 03/01/2017 peak from which it’s started a Zigzag structure. So BKX can still extend lower toward equal legs area 81.84 – 79.10 from which it can resume higher or bounce in 3 waves at least.

If the bounce is not strong enough and the Index fails to break above 99.84 peak, then it will have the possibility of doing the double three correction lower toward the 61.8%-76.4% area and retesting the 2009 trend-line before it can be able to resume it’s uptrend.

Recap

KBW Bank Index longer term technical structure remain bullish while it’s holding above 2016 low 55.99. But we need further data before we can determine if the index will be able to rally for new highs after this current shallow daily correction or it needs more time to consolidate. This decline will affect the whole Financial sector and its stocks can be fading the so called Trump rally so you need to be careful about holding a bank stock during this pullback.
