Stock Market Crash Apocalypse or Bull Market Severe Correction?

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016 Jan 16, 2016 - 04:11 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

The 7 year long mature stocks bull market has got off to a disastrous start to 2016, apparently the worst start to a new year EVER! Which on Friday saw the Dow close sharply lower at 15,988, down 391 points and recovering from an earlier 537 point plunge. Whilst the relentless selling of the past 2 weeks has increasingly emboldened the usual suspects, the perma bears who tend to see the start of a bear market in EVERY dip. However for those who actually managed to ride this 7 year long stocks bull market (15 Mar 2009 - Stealth Bull Market Follows Stocks Bear Market Bottom at Dow 6,470 ), which for its first full 3 years at least was a stealth bull market that was met with denial from right across the financial media, never mind the blogosfear, now have to seriously consider whether the relentless weakness could be an early sign that the stocks bull market may be rolling over into a bear market.


Now, I for one am not prone to knee jerk reactions but instead rely on the laborious process of in-depth analysis so as to arrive at that which is the most probable outcome, and where the stock and related inter-markets are concerned my last in-depth analysis of Mid September 2015 concluded in a forecast for a rally from the then so called start of bear market calls of the perma-crowd to near a new all time high by the end of 2015 as excerpted below:

13 Sep 2015 - Stock Market Dow Trend Forecast for September to December 2015

My final conclusion is for continuing weakness that will result in a volatile trading range with a probable re-test of the recent low of 15,370 by Mid October that will set the scene for a strong rally into the end of the year that could see the Dow trade above 18,000 before targeting a gain for a seventh year in a row at above 17,823 as illustrated below:

And as the earlier chart illustrates that the Dow did trend close to the forecast into the end of the year. My next in-depth analysis for the stock market will seek to map out a trend for several months and probably for the whole of 2016, so there is little point in giving instant reactions to daily gyrations which are akin to a coin toss response that tends to be the norm where most instant daily market commentary is concerned. Instead, I am going to complete my intensive process of in-depth inter-market analysis to conclude in detailed trend forecasts for several key markets all of which are linked which is the real secret towards arriving at that which is the most probable outcome, rather than wholly focusing on just one market which would mean missing a good 50% of the big picture that influences a market i.e. the impact of the future crude oil price trend on the stock market.

So ensure you are subscribed to my always free newsletter (only requirement is an email address) for the following pieces of analysis of which crude oil is imminent.

  • Crude Oil Trend 2016
  • Interest Rates 2016
  • US Dollar Trend Forecast
  • US House Prices Forecast 2016 and Beyond
  • Stock Market Trend Forecast 2016
  • Gold and Silver Price Forecast 2016

However, having traded markets for over 30 years, I can say that today's market neither resembles, 1987, 2000, nor 2007. Which implies to expect something different to that which transpired following each of those market tops. So pending the final conclusions of my ongoing series of in-depth pieces of analysis, my view is that the stocks bull market is currently undergoing it's most severe correction to date which has further to go and may technically turn out to be classed as a bear market but nothing on the scale of the last two bear markets in terms of percentage decline and duration. In fact the next few weeks could prove to be a great buying opportunity.
