Dow Jones Stock Market Index Forecast 2009 - Update1

Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market Feb 25, 2009 - 02:37 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis analysis seeks to update the forecast of 20th January 2009 for the Dow Jones stocks index in the light of subsequent volatile price action.

The 2009 forecast is ( Dow Jones Forecast 2009 - 20th Jan 2009) - In Summary , I do not know at precisely what price level the Dow will make a low during 2009, my best estimate at this time is 6,600, but I am expecting that it will mark the start of a multi-year bull market that will eventually make 2008-2009's price action appear as a mere minor blip, much as the 1987 crash appears on today's price charts.


FORECAST DEVIATION - The DJIA closed last night at 7,350 which is significantly below the forecast trend that targets 6,600 by July 2009. This therefore supports the view that stock prices should be supported in the immediate future back towards the trend path. Therefore those looking for an immediate crash of the stock market may be disappointed, however any bounce at this point in time would not change the fundamental outlook that we remain in a VERY WEAK STOCKS BEAR MARKET that is increasingly targeting MUCH lower stock prices.

TREND ANALYSIS - Many stock market analysts that have been banking on a rally from January into April have been painfully proved wrong, as the bear market reasserted itself by busting through the November 7449 low on the DJIA. The markets attempts at rallying during late January and early February proved feeble, as correctly anticipated in the original forecast (20th Jan 09). This area of indecision now creates a resistance area for the stock market of between 8400 and 7,900 which is likely to contain any bounce so as to maintain the strongly bearish stock market trend.

PRICE TARGETS - The Dow has breached the 2003 low of 7197 which is bearish and confirms lower prices, longer range support exists at 6,400 and heavy support at 5700. Which implies that there is not much support on the way down to 6,400, a break of which would target a trend to below 6,000 for overshoot to 5,700. On the upside targets as illustrated above are contained by the consolidation area of 7900 to 8400 and therefore projects to a target price point of 7,900 to 8,100.

MACD - The MACD indicator has again turned lower, however it does support the original analysis of a significant low in the making by mid year, in that the February decline has not resulted in a significant breakdown on the MACD indicator which to me strongly suggests that the MACD is heading to make a higher low during mid 2009. I.e. a strongly bullish long-term signal.

SEASONAL TREND - The seasonal tendency is for the stock market to rally into late April / early May. This therefore could support a corrective rally from current levels for the stock indices, i.e. setting the market up for the final push lower into July.

ELLIOTT WAVE THEORY - My interpretation of Elliott wave theory implies that stock market has begun its 5th Major Wave lower of which the current impulse wave lower counts as wave 1, time wise this targets a decline for another 5 months which confirms the original forecast for a July 2009 low. However price wise EW targets much lower prices than the original target of 6,600 therefore there exists a strong probability of the Dow now busting below 6,600, slicing through 6000 enroute to the revised target of 5,700. which would represents a decline of about 23% on the last close. On a longer-term basis this interpretation also implies the bull market that starts in mid 2009 may now prove to be corrective, which will be come much clearer during the second half of 2009.

DJIA Forecast Update Conclusion

The above analysis confirms the bear market trend into mid July 2009. However it is increasingly unlikely that DJIA 6,600 will hold and therefore the bear market is targeting a trend towards a break of the lower target of 6,000. The anticipated trend is as illustrated in the below graph as after possible further immediate term selling is for the DJIA to target a rally to resistance of 7,900 and thereafter resumption of the bear trend to below 6000. However my longer term forecast of a multi-year bull run 'so far' still stands as after the bankrupt financial stocks have reached total wipeout, well there is not much further lower that the markets can be dragged following the July lows as evidenced by the Nasdaq's relative strength due to the fact it contains no financial stocks.

The FTSE is also expected to follow a similar trend with the original forecast as follows now targeting a trend towards the lower target of 3000 rather than the original forecast low of 3,400 as illustrated by the below graph.

Irving Fisher - Debt Deflation Theory

Increasingly analysts are jumping onto the Irving Fisher Economic theory bandwagon as for solutions to the unfolding severe recession and possible depression against the mainstream Keynesian solutions. As I tend to concentrate on the technical picture much more then economic theory I approach both camps from an unbiased point of view, however on digging into history I did uncover the following - Irving Fisher said on 5th September 1929 with the Dow Jones trading at 375, about 4% off its high - "There may be a recession in stock prices, but not anything in the nature of a crash." and again just days before the Great crash began - “Stock prices have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau.”

So analysts need to beware before they hitch their wagons to any economic theories, rather keep ones eyes firmly on the actual price action.

More bad economic news?

Dow Jones Industrial Average index is at its lowest levels because the investor condence level is at its bottom low. High unemployment and bad economic news also keep the stock market under pressure. I think unfreezing of the credit matkets should have a positive effect on investors, but I don't believe we will have that untill at least 2010. I think we might even see Dow in mid 5Ks or even lower if we don't have more good economic news soon.
