Stock Markets Don’t Care About the News, Nasdaq 10,000?

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019 Jul 07, 2019 - 05:36 PM GMT

By: Harry_Dent

Stock-Markets Markets popped higher this morning after a weekend of good news: The Donald and Xi Jinping have agreed to a temporary truce in the U.S.-China trade war. The Donald has eased trade restrictions on Huawei. And The Donald made nice with North Korea.

On Friday, I explained that markets were at that critical point where they could either roll over and die or zoom to the moon. Today’s market action shows we’re clearly following the Dark Window that I forecast back in January already. I hope you’re taking advantage of it.

I first mentioned the Dark Window opportunity in January. While I’ve updated you on the market’s progress along this scenario many times since then, it’s been a long time since I spelled out my forecast. So, in light of today’s market madness, let’s take a trip down memory lane and re-read an email I sent you on January 9th.


I’ve added some highlighted notes below to account for events we’ve seen since this was published.

How the Nasdaq Could Reach 10,000 in 2019

Who would have thought I would be forecasting that the Nasdaq could zoom to 10,000 this year? [Up until this point, I was known as the market bear with nothing but doom and gloom predictions…]

Two things have changed my perspective in recent months: The Q4 2018 crash didn’t approach the typical 40% loss in the first two to three months, as was typical of most major bubbles… and my newer 90-Year Bubble Buster Cycle.

That 90-year Cycle is a “double variation’ of my proven 45-Year Innovation Cycle. It has marked the greatest bubble peaks and “resets” since the Industrial Revolution (1837 to 1842 and 1929 to 1932).

If the current correction doesn’t crash down much harder by early February – which doesn’t look likely at this point [and it didn’t] – then a final blow-off rally would be most consistent with past major bubbles, especially the ones that hit on this 90-year cycle.

What I’ve Been Looking At…

I’ve been looking at the finally bubble rallies on all the key indices: The S&P 500, the Dow, and especially the Nasdaq because it’s the lead bubble of the lot.

What I am noticing is that the best support on the final rallies since early 2009 come from a linear trend-line through the bottoms, but the best rally and upside targets come from exponential trend-lines through the tops.

Here’s my best chart for the leading Nasdaq… 



What This Chart Is Telling Us…

First, note that bottom linear trend-line. It comes through at around 5,500 in early February [and currently that line in the sand is 5,700 – 5,800 just ahead].

The same trend-line on the S&P 500 comes through around 2,300 currently and will be hit first, and hence, be the first warning, if broken, that this Nasdaq support line could be hit. Again, the Nasdaq is the trump card here.

Next, note the progressive nature of the rally.

The first wave into 2011 was more normal.

The next wave into 2015 was more exponential.

What Does This Mean?

If the markets can hold key support ahead, especially by early February, the next rally would project to around 9,500 on an exponential trend, or as high as 10,000 if it makes similar point gains to the last rally in 38% of the time. That takes us into late 2019/early 2020. [Of course, the markets did hold key support, and while they have had a hiccup here and there since January, they remain on track for this target on the Nasdaq by year end.]

From the recent lows of 6,190, that’s a 53% to 62% gain.

From the bottom trend-line of 5,500, if reached, that’s 73% to 82%!

If we can hold the 2,300 level on the S&P 500 in the next month, this bullish scenario becomes much more likely.

Should we hold the bottom trend-line on the Nasdaq, around 5,500 currently, it could still follow this extremely bullish scenario?

If the S&P breaks 2,300 substantially suggesting a top in late 2018, then it could just retest its highs, while the Nasdaq rings the big bell with major new highs, assuming it holds 5,500. That would also be consistent with past bubble tops.

I cover the most basic bullish and bearish scenarios in the January edition of Boom & Bust. Don’t miss that issue and keep it handy as I’ll refer to it in updates in the weeks and months ahead. [If you missed it, go back and read it… or get your hands on it.]

One way or the other, 2019 looks to be very different than what many on Wall Street expect. It’s very likely to either be very bullish or very bearish. Not the middle ground they’re suggesting. And I’m still favoring the bullish scenario unless proven otherwise.

We will keep you updated.

I’ll add that, over the last several months, stories in the mainstream media have shifted from being pessimistic to more greed oriented. I’m seeing with increasing frequency the call to get ready for the markets to deliver huge gains in short order. As you encounter these articles, just remember: you heard it here first.

Harry studied economics in college in the ’70s, but found it vague and inconclusive. He became so disillusioned by the state of the profession that he turned his back on it. Instead, he threw himself into the burgeoning New Science of Finance, which married economic research and market research and encompassed identifying and studying demographic trends, business cycles, consumers’ purchasing power and many, many other trends that empowered him to forecast economic and market changes.
