Stock Market Cycles Peaking

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019 Nov 11, 2019 - 12:30 PM GMT

Stock-Markets

Current Position of the Market

SPX: Long-term trend – There are no clear signs that the bull market is over.

Intermediate trend –  Most likely building an intermediate top.

Analysis of the short-term trend is done on a daily basis with the help of hourly charts.  It is an important adjunct to the analysis of daily and weekly charts which discusses the course of longer market trends

 Cycles Peaking

Market Overview

The best guesstimate is that SPX is in the process of creating an intermediate top, probably the B-wave of wave-4 of the bull market.  The only thing that would disprove this view is if market strength continued with IWM beginning to take the lead.  Since this is obviously not happening, we’ll have to stay with the current premise.  I stated in the previous letter that Eric Hadik (insiide@aol.com) was predicting that multiple cycles should be peaking between Nov. 1-15.  We are in that time zone and negative divergences are now showing in the daily and hourly indicators.  This strongly suggests that we are near reversing the trend which started in early October at 2856.  A word of caution!  I believe that longer-term we are making a rounding top, and this takes time to form.  Therefore, I would not expect a sharp, protracted decline immediately.  Rather, a bearish pattern which would develop over a period of time.  This is supported by the fact that the 10X P&F chart currently shows very little distribution, and some will have to become evident before we start a serious decline.  With the 80-day Hurst cycle low due ~11/14, we should see initial weakness appear next week.    

Market Analysis (All charts are courtesy of QChart)

SPX daily chart

The original channel from 2346, represented here by two parallel blue lines, has served as a model for all the uptrends that were generated after it ended.  They are all structured the same way:  a top and a bottom channel line which are parallels to the original channel, with a dashed parallel approximately in the center.  The index price tends to remain above that center line until we get close to the end of the move.  When it crosses the dashed line, it is near the end of the move.  The crossing of the middle line is usually followed by a retest of the high before the price breaks out of the channel and a correction begins.  The final top is preceded by negative divergence in the oscillators with the A-Ds (lowest) always preceding the others.  Another manifestation of a short-term top is when price crosses below the magenta 9-dma.

The last short-term uptrend from 2856 is following this pattern exactly, so far!  Negative divergence has already appeared in the CCI and the A-Ds have already gone negative.  With the Hurst cycle due to bottom at the end of the week, we should expect the 9-dma to be crossed by the price any day.  But since the lower channel line is not that near, the odds favor a retest of the high and a little top distribution taking place before we start trading outside of that channel line.  This would also satisfy the need for additional congestion to form on the P&F chart.

 

SPX hourly chart 

The channel just discussed on the daily chart is represented here on a 60m chart.  In this time frame, the channel lines and the mid-channel dashed line are seen in greater detail as each daily bar is replaced by 7 hourly ones.  But real difference is in the moving averages.  The blue 50-ma takes the place of the magenta 9-dma.  You can see how it has supported prices since early in the move and that it would take a trade below ~3065 to suggest that we are ending the trend which started from 2856.  The purple daily channel line runs at about 3045, and this is where we can expect to find initial support leading to a rebound that would most likely put the final touch on an intermediate top.  By the time we trade below the bottom channel line, we should have an adequate distribution pattern on the P&F chart, and we can get a good idea of the extent of the next decline.

Just as the daily oscillators are showing negative divergence, the hourly ones are even more advanced in this regard, which is telling us that the index price should soon capitulate to the increased pressure coming from the cycle due to make its low towards the end of the week, the first of several others to follow. 

 

UUP (dollar ETF) daily

UUP found support on a secondary channel line and rallied after making a small double bottom.  A reversal back down does not appear to be imminent, so it could move a little higher before turning back down again. 


GDX (Gold miners ETF) weekly

GDX could not overcome overhead resistance provided by the 50-dma and turned back down in a manner that suggests that more time will have to pass (and probably lower prices) before it is in a position to try another reversal.  The daily indicators were damaged by price loss and they will take some time to mend. 

 

CCG (canopy growth) daily

CGC’s action is improving and it appears to have successfully retested is recent low.  Last week I suggested that if it could do this, the next move could carry it up to the dashed mid-channel line. 


BNO (U.S. Brent oil fund) daily

BNO is ready to pull back with the market.

Summary

Everything suggests that SPX is in a topping area and ready to have a short-term correction which should develop into something larger.
