New Stocks Bull or Same Old One?

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020 Jun 10, 2020 - 04:25 PM GMT

By: Andre_Gratian


Current Position of the Market

 SPX: Long-term trend – Having rallied well past a .618 retracement of the decline into March 2020, it is time to consider the possibility that the retracement was only an interruption of the bull market which originated in 2009.

Intermediate trend Up from March 23,2020.

Analysis of the short-term trend is done daily 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

New Bull or Same Old One? 

Important Cycles

Did the 4.5-year cycle bottom in March instead of waiting for its ideal low point in July?  This is a possibility according to a Hurst analyst.

Point & Figure Overview of SPX

Intermediate projection:  3220-3250?

Market Analysis (Charts courtesy of QChart)

SPX-IWM weekly charts 

Trying to reconcile the market action with the background of pandemic, riots, and economic statistics which rival those of the great depression can make your head spin!  That is why technical analysis is the only sane alternative to understanding what is taking place.  Keeping it simple, the market found a low in March and started a rally which just made a new high last Friday.  This rally, for the time being at least, has taken the market out of the bear territory and opened the possibility that we have resumed the long-term trend which started in 2009.  Possible!  If the market continues its uptrend and makes a new high, this will be confirmed.  But this is not yet a given, because it is also possible that the rally is about to come to an end.  The base that was formed at the 2450 level by SPX had the potential of supporting a move to the 3220-3250 level (conservative count) or to about 200 points higher (liberal count). Any projection past these levels would include some “weak count” which is not reliable. Assuming the conservative count is correct, what happens over the next several weeks will decide whether we are still in a bull market. 

SPX daily chart

 On Friday, SPX reached 3212 in what looks like a buying climax.  Since the daily high occurred at resistance, very near the projection posted above, and there is still a chance that the 45-td cycle low (ideally due Tuesday) is still ahead of us, we could get a pull-back for a couple of days followed by another test of the projection area.  This is what I would like to see to suggest that my analysis is correct. 

To show that the move has ended, SPX needs first to fall below the near-term trend line.  Next should come some congestion forming a topping area or, if we are going to move higher, forming a base for the next phase up.

The oscillators made new highs with the price.  The only negative divergence remains in the A-Ds.  That would indicate that higher prices should come before we start a decline; it does not tell us how much higher we need to go.


SPX hourly chart

 In the last Newsletter, I had expected that a short-term correction was in the making, but it was cut short by the better than anticipated, non-farm payrolls report on Friday which seems to have come as a big surprise to analysts.

 The uptrend started at 2767 and appears to have run into resistance at 3214 (shown on the daily chart) as well as from various trend and channel lines drawn on the hourly chart.  There was not enough of a retracement to go beyond the shortest MA, or to cause the oscillators to give a sell signal.  Nor was there clear enough negative divergence to indicate the probability of a top, except in the A-Ds.  The futures lost a little more ground after the close, but not enough to be convincing.  We should know better on Sunday night!  If they continue to decline, it will probably suggest a lower opening on Monday. 

At first glance, the move does appear complete, especially with what looks like an exhaustion gap taking place at Friday’s opening.  If it is, at the very least we should expect it to be filled right away.


UUP (dollar ETF) daily

It’s interesting that the “good” report on Friday did not cause a stir in UUP.  Perhaps this tells us that the data was distorted.  In any case, the index continues to be pulled lower by the bottoming 3-mo cycle which has approximately three more weeks to go. 


GDX (Gold miners ETF) monthly

The monthly chart of GDX shows that a significant base has been formed since 2013 and that the index has risen above it.  This is suggestive of long-term price appreciation.  Near-term, the index appears to be consolidating after breaking out of its base.   


PAAS (Pan American Silver Corp.) daily

PAAS is also correcting after tracing a new recovery high from the severe sell-off in March.  It has found resistance at the top of its current bullish channel, as well as at the top of a former, intermediate channel.  As in GDX, the long-term base that it has built is indicative of higher prices.  The current pull-back may only be short-term.


BNO (U.S. Brent oil fund) daily

BNO continues to move along with the market and will start to retrace when the market does.  It is still expected to build a base before it can move substantially higher.



“… SPX has continued to drive towards its intermediate destination (which could be at least 2160) before the 40-wk cycle forces a severe retracement into mid-July.”

SPX has now surpassed the minimum recovery target provided by the base count, and has come much closer to the conservative intermediate target (mentioned above) which is more likely to show an end to the rally from the March low -- unless traders opt for the liberal count which could take prices a couple hundred points higher.
