FTSE 100 Index Stealth Bull Market as Bear Market Bottoms at 3,460

Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market Mar 17, 2009 - 09:08 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe FTSE 100 index fulfilled its bear market target as per the forecast of 20th January 2009 which called for a target Low at 3,400. Whilst much of my analysis has been focused on the Dow Jones Index, however as I have stated several times over recent months that the FTSE would closely track the DJIA in terms of bear market timing, but with a more positive % advantage to the Dow Index due to the impact of the overall continuing bearish trend of Sterling against the U.S. Dollar.


This article is a quick update which includes summaries of recent analysis and the initial FTSE buy triggers for what I expect will turn out to become a multi-year bull market whilst the vast majority of market participants (small investors / analysts) FAIL to recognise the stealth bull market now underway until many months and a good 30% rally has already taken place as the perma bears that have enjoyed much press coverage as the bear market raged WILL continue to convince most investors from failing to participate, leaving only the smart money, i.e. hedge funds, fund money pools and yours truly to accumulate.

FTSE 100 Index Forecast (20th Jan 09 - FTSE 4091)

"The FTSE looks set to break below the previous low, however I expect the FTSE to outperform other indices with a minimum 35% move from the years low and finish Up on the year, my best estimate at this time is for the FTSE to trade at 4,600 or higher during December 2009. Also I am expecting that 2009 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."

Dow Jones Index Bottom? - 8th March 2009 - DJIA 6626, FTSE 3520

"Having now fulfilled the primary target of 6,600 the next phase of the strategy is therefore towards accumulating on buy price triggers in advance of what I consider will become a multi-year bull market, which appears contrary to many analysts."

Dow Jones Stealth Bull Market Born - 15th March 2009 - Dow 7224, FTSE 3,770

"As stated in last weekends analysis and newsletter , following the Dow's Friday close at 6626 that the Dow Jones Index had now fulfilled its bear market target of 6,600 as per the analysis of 20th Jan 2009 and illustrated by the chart below. The primary focus hence forth was to "position for a bullish spike higher" that would CONFIRM the bear market low, and negate the secondary far less probable overshoot target of 5,700 to 6000. This occurred on Tuesday which saw the first of a series of BUY TRIGGERS both on the Intra day charts and then on the Daily time frame chart that confirmed the preceding weeks Bear Market Low and set in motion the anticipated spike that took the Dow up 12% by the end of the week to close at 7,224. "

Current State of the FTSE - Bottom and Initial Triggers

For the background to the Stealth Bull Market, investment strategies and how market manipulators drive trends as well as why fundamentals such as earnings forecasts are IRRELEVANT at market junctures do see the preceding articles especially that of 15th of March 2009. As well as the importance of acting on buy and sell triggers in the direction of your trade and stops, see the Dow Bull Stealth Market Article, on which I will elaborate upon in a book / website through which I will seek to freely share my trading methodology honed over the past 20 years, at my soon to go live site walayatstreet.com Also subscribe to my always free newsletter to get the latest analysis in your inbox.

FTSE 100

Hi Nadeem,

Your analysis is the bomb!

Is the Dec target still 4600 or do you see it going higher?

FTSE Target

Hi

The target was revised higher during April to 4995, inline with the Dow's target, as bulk of my stocks analysis is on the Dow, but the same trend wise applies to the FTSE.

FTSE 100 Hits 2009 Stocks Bull Market Target of 5000, What's Next?

FTSE 100 Bull Market Update 9th September 2009

The FTSE 100 stock market index broke above 5,000 by closing at 5,004 for the first time since the financial collapse of September 2008.

Whilst the highly vocal public perma bears have frightened much of the investing public into sitting on the sidelines, too frightened to commit and leaving the smart money to accumulate at rock bottom prices, readers following my analysis of the stealth stocks bull market will have been left with little doubt of where I expected the market to head with first a clear target for the bear market bottom at the start of the year confirmed in March, and then the subsequent stealth bull market mapped out throughout 2009 as the following illustrate before I get to where I expect the FTSE is headed to next.

Whilst much of my analysis has been focused on the Dow Jones Index, however as I have stated several times over the year that the FTSE would closely track the DJIA in terms of market timing, but with a more positive trend advantage to the Dow Jones

Initial Bull Market Target 30% Advanced, revised during April Dow analysis to 50% for 2009 or FTSE 4995

More Recent Dow Analysis mapped out the trend for the Dow Jones Index as follows -

The stocks bull market continues to resolve towards the pattern I painted some 7 weeks ago - Vicious Stocks Stealth Bull Market Eats the Bears Alive!, What's Next?

CONCLUSION - My earlier fears about a bull trap appear to be unfounded, the stock chart is talking that we are in a stocks bull market, and is suggestive of a trend higher towards a 2009 target of between 9750 and 10,000, with a high probability that we may get there before the end of October!. Key danger areas for this scenario are a. for the trend line to contain corrections, and b. that 8080, MUST HOLD.

The last update of 3 weeks ago (Stocks Stealth Bull Market Crushes Bears Hopes Again) showed the trend resolving towards an earlier peak given the strength of wave 1 which implied a weaker waves 3 and 5.

The Price action to date has shown relative strength against the forecast of a month ago, this suggests a higher target than the original 9750 to 10K before the end of Oct 2009, the secondary stated target was 10,450. However it also suggests that the market may put in an earlier peak. I am still leaning towards the next correction AFTER the peak to be of greater significance than the last correction from June to July. Also, whilst my in depth economic analysis is on the UK economy, however much of the conclusions could equally be applied to other western economies, the analysis of February 2009 has been projecting towards a a DOUBLE DIP recession (updated June 09) which has negative implications for stocks during 2010, but for now DON'T be silly, don't fight the stocks bull market (time to drop the word stealth).

The Crumbliest Flakiest Stocks Bull Market Never Tasted Before - Sept 7th 2009

The target for the termination of the current phase of the bull market rally was between 9750 and 10,000. As mentioned above, I am not expecting an easy ride for the fifth wave as clearly it is an obvious pattern to interpret following waves 1,2,3,4. What does this mean ? Well wave 3 is screaming weakness, so that suggests a weak push higher rather than something that resembles wave 1.

The MACD is also signaling serious price weakness as there is clear divergence taking place between the rising trend and a falling MACD, very similar to the June peak.

Two possible outcomes -

a. That the fifth puts in a lower peak than the wave 3, which is significantly more bearish.

b. That we get some sideways drift (possible false break lower) before a sharp rally for a higher fifth into the target zone.

Despite the increasingly bearish technical indicators at this point I continue to march with the bull market and favour outcome b. ahead of a more serious correction that would first 1. target target the main support trendline and 2. 8900 Previous Peak.

FTSE 100 Index, Where Next?

The FTSE 100 index as originally anticipated at the start of the year is showing relative strength against the Dow Jones, this is most evident in the fact that the FTSE has achieved its price target for 2009 of 5,000 ahead of schedule by several weeks, whereas the Dow Jones remains several hundred points short of its target range of between 9,750 and 10,000.

The elliott wave pattern shows that the FTSE has broken above the wave 3 peak and is into its final fifth towards a new high which is ahead of schedule against a projected termination point for this rally of early October. What this suggests is that the FTSE could drift sideways for several weeks waiting for the DJIA to play catchup i.e. I see very limited upside remaining in the FTSE for the rest of this year!

In fact the FTSE is primed to undergo a serious correction the timing of which will be on alignment with other major global stock indices i.e. the DJIA.

Therefore I anticipate a much more difficult time for the FTSE for the rest of the year, i.e. Despite being a stocks bull, I would be surprised if the momentum of the past 2 months continues. More Probable is that the FTSE will undergo a serious correction towards a target of 4,500 to 4650 as indicated by the above chart.

In Summary, the FTSE 100 Index has FULLFILLED ITS 2009 Bull market Target of 5,000 and is primed for an IMMINENT SERIOUS CORRECTION, the only delay of which is in alignment with other global indices.
