How to Anticipate Stock Market Trend Changes

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018 Feb 21, 2018 - 03:51 PM GMT

By: EWI

Stock-Markets See one forecasting method that gave ample warning of the recent dramatic volatility

Every active stock market investor wants to know: Where are prices headed next?

Most will scour the financial headlines, tune into financial television and talk to their broker or financial advisor in hopes of finding the answer. But, alas, this quest for market insight often leaves investors just as uncertain as before.


One market veteran might say "buy the dip." Another strongly advises: "Sell!" Yet another knowingly smiles and comments: "Volatility is normal, just ride it out."

The truth is: no one knows for sure what the market will do next.

However, in EWI's four decades of analyzing the market itself, as opposed to news and events that are usually seen as market drivers, we've observed that recognizable and repetitive price patterns show up in the DJIA's price line at all degrees of trend. That's what makes the stock market predictable.

Frost & Prechter's Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior tells you what that means to investors like you:

The primary value of the Wave Principle is that it provides a context for market analysis. This context provides both a basis for disciplined thinking and a perspective on the market's general position and outlook. At times, its accuracy in identifying, and even anticipating, changes in direction is almost unbelievable.

That's right, an analyst who is familiar with these repetitive price patterns, as well as other technical analysis methods and sentiment indicators, can anticipate stock market trend changes with a high degree of confidence.

Keep in mind: The basic Elliott wave pattern is five waves in the direction of the larger trend, followed by a three-wave correction. In other words, at the start of a bear market trend, expect five waves down followed by three waves up. The reverse is true in a bull market: fives waves up followed by three waves down.

Indeed, the next day after the DJIA's Jan. 26 all-time closing high of 26,616, EWI's Short Term Update signaled to subscribers that the market's advance was toast. How? The Short Term Update editor, Steve Hochberg, labeled the end of the price line with fifth waves at two degrees of trend.

Here's that Jan. 29 Short Term Update chart, which was also accompanied by this commentary (entire wave labeling available to subscribers):

It was just last week that the Daily Sentiment Index (trade-futures.com) on S&P futures jumped to 96% and the 13-day average pushed to 91.2%, an all-time record... At the same time, the 30-day average of the NYSE Trading Index is .88, a seven-year overbought extreme.

Today's market action was internally very weak, with 4.4 more NYSE stocks closing down versus those closing up.... A selloff through 26,233 in the Dow and 2834 in the S&P 500 would be the largest of the year so far, suggesting at least a near-term change of character for the stock market advance

Indeed, on Jan. 30, the next trading day, the DJIA did drop below 26,233.

As you probably know, extreme volatility in the index soon followed, which included 1,000+ point daily declines.

But, here's what's remarkable: Our Short Term Update not only called the sell-off, but also prepared subscribers for the DJIA's sharp rebound that followed.
