How Soon Will We See Stock Market SPX 4000?

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020 Oct 08, 2020 - 05:44 PM GMT

For those of you that follow me closely, you would know that I announced my desire for the market to strike the 2200SPX region back in late 2017. That was my ideal target to be struck before the market began a rally which I expected would exceed the 4000SPX region. I again reiterated this potential in early January of 2020:

“if the market is unable to maintain that support (3100SPX) within this pullback, it will again raise the probabilities of seeing the 2200SPX region before we see the 4000 region.
For now, the market has drawn its lines in the sand, and is providing us rather clear guideposts for 2020. As I said last year, the action in the first quarter of 2020 will set the tone for the rest of the year.” (January 26, 2020)


When we were down below 2400SPX this past March, I reiterated many times that I still maintain an expectation that the market was going to rally to 4000 and potentially even exceed it:

“the evidence leads me to conclude that we need a 5th wave to 4000+ in the coming years before the bull market off the 2009 low completes.” (March 22, 2020)

When I continually reiterated my expectation to the members of my services in March, it seems they were quite divided as to how to view my expectations, or even my sanity. Even my wife questioned me when I asked her to put the cash back into the market within our children’s 529 plans with “are you sure?”

Well, the market is still setting up for the 4000-4250SPX target, but that will likely only be the next way-point as we can eventually climb as high as 6000SPX in the coming years.

Now, many of you are asking yourself what the catalyst will be to take us there? Well, this market has followed through with our general expectations for many years and we did not need to know what the catalyst was going to be. So, I maintain my expectation no matter who wins in the coming presidential elections. And, yes, I said the same back in 2016 when I predicted that the market was heading to the 2600+ region (when we were down in the 1800 region) no matter who won the 2016 election.

You see, if one understands the true internal workings of the market, it is much easier to tune out the noise and focus on what is truly important. A paper entitled “Large Financial Crashes,” published in 1997 in Physica A, a publication of the European Physical Society, outlined the true nature of the market quite well:

“Stock markets are fascinating structures with analogies to what is arguably the most complex dynamical system found in natural sciences, i.e., the human mind. Instead of the usual interpretation of the Efficient Market Hypothesis in which traders extract and incorporate consciously (by their action) all information contained in market prices, we propose that the market as a whole can exhibit an “emergent” behavior not shared by any of its constituents. In other words, we have in mind the process of the emergence of intelligent behavior at a macroscopic scale that individuals at the microscopic scales have no idea of. This process has been discussed in biology for instance in the animal populations such as ant colonies or in connection with the emergence of consciousness.”

So, when I see many pundits pointing to the decline we experienced on Friday as being caused by the announcement that our President contracted the coronavirus, I simply view it as a catalyst to move the market in the manner in which it was predisposed to move at the close on Thursday, as you can see from our chart presented to our members on Thursday afternoon:

If you have been following my work of late, you would know that I expected a pullback from the 3600SPX region to at least the 3200SPX region. On the 24th of September, the market struck a low of 3209SPX (yes, I missed by 9 points), and began the rally we experienced over the past week or so. And, as you can see from my chart above, as long as we hold the 3250SSPX support, I am expecting a rally back up to the 3450-3500SPX region in the coming weeks.

But the manner in which the market handles the 3450-3500SPX resistance region will tell us a lot about how soon I expect to rally to the 4000-4250SPX region. If the market turns back down hard from that resistance in an impulsive 5-wave structure, then it means we will likely be pointing down towards at least the 3050SPX region in the coming months before we begin the rally to 4000-4250SPX. However, if the market is able to follow the alternative path presented in yellow, which will take us back to the all-time high region, then it will only see a smaller pullback thereafter, and we will be on our way to 4000-4250SPX much sooner than I had initially expected.

So, needless to say, October is going to be very important in determining how soon the market is ready to attack the 4000-4250SPX region. My preference remains for a bigger pullback in the coming months, but I will let the market action in the next two weeks have final say on my decisions and actions.
