Stock Market Correction Curtailed by US Election

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020 Nov 11, 2020 - 10:35 AM GMT

By: Andre_Gratian


Current Position of the Market

SPX Long-term trend:  For now, the best guesstimate is that we are still in the bull market which started in 2009. Where we go from here and how far, will be gauged after the September-November correction.

SPX Intermediate trend:  Intermediate correction may have ended.

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 discuss longer market trends.

Correction curtailed by Election

Cycles:  Looking ahead!  90-yr cycle – last low: 1932. Next low: 2022

7-yr cycle – last low: 2016.  Next low: 2023

New minor low about mid-November.

Market Analysis (Charts courtesy of QCharts

SPX-IWM weekly charts

The forte of IWM as a leading indicator is to show relative weakness to SPX at the top of an intermediate or long term market move.  Comparing the two indexes in the charts posted below, we can plainly see that IWM substantially lagged SPX at the 2/20 high; not only at the intermediate level (vs the 10/18 high) but also at the short term level, whereby IWM topped a full month before SPX. 

Today, IWM continues to lag SPX over the long term time frame, but the former is outpacing SPX over the short term.  The long term lag by IWM could be warning us of a major high over the next few weeks; but its relative strength over the near term appears to tell us that there will be more market strength going into the bull market top. 


SPX daily chart

  • There was a good possibility that SPX would continue to correct into the 11/9-16 cycle low, and perhaps go all the way down to 3050 before finding an intermediate bottom to finish the correction which started from 3588.  External events can often disrupt cycles, and in this case, it was the national election -- or more specifically, the results of the election which altered the time frame, but perhaps only temporarily. 
  • One can still make the case for the correction to extend into 11/16.  When it held just above 3230, SPX created a congestion level which gave us enough of a count on the P&F chart to project the next short-term move to ~3520.  This was achieved on Thursday and in the short span of time since then, new congestion representing a potential 80-point move has already formed.  Since the near-term is still undecided, Monday’s session will determine if we are tracing out a short-term top before pulling back into the low of the next short-term cycle, or if we push higher first. 
  • Like the price pattern, indicators are not giving us a complete picture and we’ll have to wait for Monday’s session to clarify the near-term price trend.
  • SPX hourly chart
  • Looking at the hourly chart, a consolidation pattern became well-established after the index met its 3520 projection.  By Friday, prices had progressed to the short-term trend line and futures trading after the close kept them at the same level.  This means that the index will have to wait until Monday to decide if to wants to push higher or break the trend line and roll over; in which case an extension of the move into 11/16 is possible. 
  • The daily indicators show an inclination to consolidate.  This is much more obvious in the 60m oscillators, two of which had already given a sell signal by Friday’s close and negative divergence was showing in the third.  A break below the zero line in the CCI would strongly suggest that the cycle is turning the index down, with a good possibility that it will continue to trend lower for the rest of the week.  Next week will need to confirm that a temporary high has been met and that a near-term pull back is starting. 
  • UUP (dollar ETF) ($USD chart not available from this data provider)
  • Like clockwork, UUP is dropping into its 3-mo cycle low and should rally after it turns up.  The two consecutive 3-mo cycles should make a double-bottom holding at the level of the early March low.  This suggests that some strength may be returning to the dollar and that it could experience a better rally in the next 3-mo cycle uptrend.
  • GDX (gold miners)
  • GDX has benefited from the little spurt of weakness in UUP with a 5-point rally from its correction low of 36.00.  While this could be a break-out which is putting an end to its consolidation, it would appear more conclusive if there was a mild pull-back followed by a resumption of a new uptrend. The recent strong rally in gold was undoubtedly helped by a weak dollar.  If the dollar is now firming, the metals will not get much help from that sector over the short-intermediate term.
  • Technically, GDX has only rallied to the broken channel line in a three-wave pattern.  It will have to improve on that structure to appear more bullish.
  • PAAS (Pan American Silver Corp)
  • PAAS is telling us that it is a little stronger than GDX, but the same rationale applies.  A pull-back followed by another move higher is necessary to confirm that the stock is breaking out.  Barring that, a re-test of the low over the next couple of weeks is possible.
  • BNO (U.S. Brent Oil fund)
  • BNO found support on a declining trend line and bounced but is already pulling back.  It would have to move above its blue 50-dma to re-establish an uptrend.
The correction could have gone longer and lower before reversing, and it may still go longer with the minor cycle lows due on about 11/16.  That scenario does not prevent the index from trying for a slightly higher high, first.
