Dow Annual Percent Change

The Dow in percentage terms is well on it's way to retreating from it's most overbought state in decades, what usually tends to happen is that the Dow percent touches or more usually crosses below the red bar and for the bull market to resume would need to cross back above the red bar.How far would the Dow need to fall to fulfill this requirement in the allotted Sept / Oct correction time window? Probably to around 28k. However the alternative is that the Dow stays put around 34k to 35k for the next 6 months, which does not seem probable, so this indicator is suggesting a swift sharp drop to possibly as low as 28k within the next few weeks!

Long-term Trend Analysis

The Dow has barely had any significant correction in now approaching a year, chugging along the upper resistance trend line for the past 6 months.

TREND CHANNELS - The Dow fought it's way back into it's tight converging bull market trend channel, all the way towards trading beyond the channel for the past 6 months. The channel extends to 35,500 and 34000 into the end of the year. Whilst the Dow has fallen below the converging post pandemic crash channels thus signaling weakness.

TREND ANALYSIS - The Dow has now made a lower high and low and thus signaled a trend change of sorts right smack at the weakest time of the year. So implies to expect a correction to at least target the May low of $33.3k along which exists significant support. so it's going to be tough for this strong bull market to trade below $33.3k. However below that we have the gap from 28,500 to 29000. Will the Dow fill the gap? It's going to be tough to do given the amount of support. It would take a panic event to do so. At this point at best the Dow appears to be targeting is the string of highs at 31.5k as the probable low.

RESISTANCE - Resistance is along a string of highs just over 35k, to 35.6k.

SUPPORT - There is heavy support at 33k and 31.5k.

TRENDLINES - Apart from the channels there is the support trendline from the first post pandemic low that extends to 33k into Mid Oct, so suggests 33k could be the lowest a correction could carry.

MACD - MACD has been unwinding an overbought state during the rally. So suggests a mild correction to prime the Dow for it's next advance into the end of the year.


Every high is the fifth of the fifth of the fifth! until the market fails to follow through and on we march with the next high then the next high, which is why I take Elliott Wave Theory with a mountain of salt.

My Elliott Wave pattern of Feb 2009 has proven remarkably accurate (as did the pattern before that), see being skeptical works! It's when people think they have found the holy grail when things start to go wrong!

Even the expected ABC off the 5th wave peak in May materialised but was weaker than expected.

So the Wave 5 in MAY was a Wave 3 peak, which implies that we are now in the final wave of a larger move. This suggests NOT to expect a crash in October, rather just a correction as we have still further to run.

Wave 1 was 5 months, Wave 2 2 months, Wave 3 6 months, Wave 4 about 1.5 months into Mid June, and currently we stand at +3 months into Mid Sept for wave 5 which means we could be in for another 3 months higher and that the October correction will be weak i.e. may not trade below 34k in fact the Dow may even trade to a new high during early October so conflicts with much of my analysis. Also suggests to expect the Dow to trade to a new all time high during late December / Early January, how high? Could be as high as $40k!

Stocks and 10 Year Bond Yields

The basic pattern is for falling yields to be bearish for stocks whilst rising yields are bullish for stocks. The reason being is that investors are selling bonds to buy stocks hence yields and stocks rise.

The chart shows this pattern play out up until May 2021, where initial pattern conforming to Dow 33.3k soon reversed as stocks launched into a mania phase WITH falling bond yields. However now we have the opposite problem of rising yields and weakening stocks.

What this suggests to me is that recent rise in yields is temporary, and thus despite talk of tapering and run away inflation, yields could be heading lower. Though with yields trading well below inflation we are not living in normal times, i.e. yields 'should' be ABOVE inflation i.e. well ABOVE 5%!

Also that we are pretty close to the limit below which yields cannot go, as illustrates by the period April 2020 to August 2020 i.e. stocks rose with falling yields because 10 year note yields can't get much lower than that.

So falling yields 'should' pull stocks lower to a degree, which would fit the time line for a correction of a 4 - 6 weeks before stocks just shrug their shoulders and continued on higher.


The seasonal pattern suggests after a pause in Feb, higher into late April, then correct from early May into late June followed by a volatile summer terminating in a swing low during September that should set the scene for a bull run into the Christmas Holidays with of course intra month volatility during October that tends to resolve to the upside just as the perma-bears are crowing at their loudest that the end is neigh.

This year we got our strong July and a strong August which was contrary to the bull markets usual pattern. Which means that whilst the bull market has had a tendency to go against it's longer term seasonal trend by moving higher during September, nevertheless the strong August likely sows the seeds for a weak September. Then it's a case of off to the races for a Strong October, even stronger November and more gains in December courtesy of Santa all before a weak January and February.

So the seasonal pattern points to a window of opportunity spanning September and likely into Mid October to allow one to pick up stocks trading at a discount of sorts hence my original plan to buy back stocks after the October low, following which the bull trend is expected to resume into the end of the year. Especially take note of November strengthening over time which looks like the santa rally starting earlier each year as investors attempt to preempt exposure and thus December has been gradually losing it's stock market lustre to November. So one should want to be positioned BEFORE the start of November else be chasing after rising stock prices all month long.

Though note If what we have seen is THE BULL MARKET TOP then well we won't get a Santa rally, what we probably will get is a stock market bouncing around in a trading range repeatedly off or near the October lows. It's going to be an interesting next few months, imagine the shock on market participants if come December stocks aren't trading much off their October lows and perhaps nudging below from time to time.

Short-term Seasonal Trend

Short-term seasonal pattern for the past 2 years has been fairly robust, i.e. higher lows all the way! This years high going into the correction season came Mid August which therefore means there is not much time left for more downside price action before a counter trend rally, thus stocks should bottom fairly soon for a rally of sorts. Now to achieve a low around Mid October the rally would need to be pretty brief in terms of time. How likely is this pattern to unfold? The early October rally appears to be too brief to seem natural, thus we may get the rally starting earlier and continuing a little later into October which therefore suggests the final sell off continuing deeper into the 2nd half of October, maybe into the end of October so as to spread the trend out into a more natural price pattern.

US Presidential Cycle 

Post election years tend to be the weakest of the four years, resulting in an average gain for the year of 3% against an average of 10.6% for the stronger pre election years. However, The stock market tends to be stronger under Democrats than Republicans during the post election years, up 6 out of 7 vs Up 3 out of 10 for republicans and average gain of +13.4% vs +1.5%. So the election year cycle favours a strong up year as Uncle Biden prints plenty of dollars for everyone to party, which is basically what we are experiencing. Though next year that Democrat performance slumps to just +0.6%! Which suggests this rally is a time to take profits and de risk, because 2022 according to the Presidential cycle could be weak!

Back in early Feb I concluded - "therefore suggests 2021 could turn out to be a strongly bullish year with the market trading up by at least 10% towards the end of the year, in fact could surprise to the upside, 15%, 20% even?" So far we are well on our way for a +15% to +20% for 2021 based on this measure alone.

Best Time of Year to Invest in Stocks

Statistically the best time of year to buy Stocks is during late October and then hold all the way through to the end of April, for an early May top, whilst the subsequent 6 months tend to be the weakest of the year. This year the stock market was strong into early May, but so far subsequent weakness has failed to materialise, though we do have a month or so to go. Where the strategy is to buy the market as it rally's off the October lows and then look to hold into late April / Early May 2022.

2021 - 2022 Seasonal Investing Pattern

Pulling all four seasonal patterns together suggests to expect stocks to fall into a late October low, then rally into the end of April to be followed by a significant bear trend during 2022.
