US Stock Market Indexes Setup Bottom Confirmation Pattern

Stock-Markets / Articles May 07, 2018 - 10:25 AM GMT

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Stock-Markets

On Wednesday, May 2, we issued a research post supporting our position that the markets were nearing an apex breakout and that critical support and resistance levels had established within the market.  We indicated that volatility is usually quite high throughout these apex breakout moves with the potential for a “wash-out” price rotation in the works.  In other words, as these apex breakouts happen, price can sometimes, falsely, break to one side or the other and rotate very quickly to the other side – creating what we call a “wash-out” price reversal.

Closing out this week, prices broke lower on Thursday, May 3, and reversed sharply before the end of the trading session to create a “wash-out” low formation which is indicative of a price bottom.  We felt strongly that our ADL price modeling system’s analysis as well as this bottom formation are strong evidence that the US majors will enter a new upside price trend very quickly.


Last week we entered three trades to take advantage of this increased volatility, fear and large price swing in the markets with subscribers of our service. We took partial profits of 4% on one, the other is up over 7%, and the third is on the verge of a big move of 20% or more.

In this post we want to share with the markets general direction because there are some hot sectors and hot commodities like Crude Oil and Platinum that should have incredible moves over the next several weeks.

SP500 Channel, Washout Low & Breakout

As of Wednesday, May 2, there were two levels we were watching: support at 2623 and resistance at 2658.  The triple top formation in the ES was indicative of major resistance near 2658.  We didn’t believe this range will hold for very long as our ADL price modeling system was predicting an upside price breakout.

SP500 Pennant Formation

This ES Weekly chart clearly shows the pennant formation, lower price support channels and the two intermediate support and resistance levels drawn on the price chart, above.  Our interpretation of the current market setup is that price may continue to rotate in somewhat violent modes until the breakout is completed.  The breakout price move we are expecting could happen any minute between now and the end of next week.  We believe this is the most likely time span for price to attempt this breakout move.

On Thursday, May 3, the markets created a moderately deep “wash-out low” pattern that we called in our Daily morning video to our members.  We execute a few trades at bottom of this price rotation to take full advantage of this move.

Our previous research indicated the markets would attempt a rally within the next few weeks and we knew this price apex formation often includes volatility “wash-out” reversals near the end of the move.  Our instincts proved very successful as the markets opened and rallied on Friday with a follow-through rally.

NASDAQ Pennant Formation

This, the NQ Daily chart, clearly shows the bullish price breakout that happened on Friday.  This is the start of the “bottom confirmation” that we’ve been warning about for weeks.  The next upside move to this formation should push NQ prices to well above 7000 and higher.  Pay attention to how this move coincided with a Time/Price Cycle pattern indicating that we should have strong upside price movement over the next 5~10 trading days.

SP500 Pennant Formation Still Intact

This ES Daily chart shows that the S&P has not confirmed the price breach pattern just yet and will likely rally past this level early this week.  This chart also shows the critical support and resistance levels that we had been watching over the past few days and provides a clear example of what a “wash-out” low looks like.  Upside potential in the ES is clearly 7%+ over the next few weeks.

Our research team dedicated many hundreds of hours into digging into the underlying factors of the markets and developing advanced price modeling tools.  Our Advanced Dynamic Learning price modeling systems and Adaptive Fibonacci price modeling systems are only available to our members.
