Stock Market What Can we Expect in December?

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016 Dec 09, 2016 - 07:33 PM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski


SPX has closed above its daily Cycle Top at 2232.21 and met at least two Fibonacci targets at 2250.00 and 2255.00. It must close back beneath its Cycle Top to get a possible daily sell signal. Preferably Wave 1 should decline to or beneath last Friday’s low at 2187.44 before retesting the Cycle Top. The final challenge of the Cycle Top is the ideal short entry in this scenario.

Beyond that, Wave (1) may decline at least to the Cycle Bottom at 2022.70 or to the 5-year trendline near 2000.00. Again, the ideal decline would go beneath the Brexit low at 1991.68 to set up a clear long-term sell signal. That would be an 11.5% decline that, once reversed, would give an “all clear” for most investors and commentators who would claim that we missed the bullet again (a 20% “bear market” decline).

This also comports with the pattern in the Orthodox Broadening Top, which calls for a 4-6% decline beneath “point 4” at 2083.79.

The Cycles Model allows at least 8.6 days for this to happen, although it may extend another day or so. The reason I use these time periods is that the usual time period for an impulse is usually divisible by 4.3.

8.6 days from today’s high would be near the close of trading on Wednesday, December 21. However, Thursday December 22 is a Pi date, which may extend the decline another 4.3 hours. I am not expecting the decline to last beyond Thursday. Thereafter, the Model calls for a rally until January 6. The crash may happen after that, since the Model calls for a decline until early February. These dates are all guidelines that may be adjusted according to the progress of the decline.

VIX made an apparent Impulsive rally from its low and a near-Fibonacci retracement of 63.3%. It is currently off its daily low and is currently oversold enough to resume its rally.

If the current structure is correct, VIX may have the capability to rally to or above its Cycle Top at 20.14 and Ending Diagonal trendline at or near 22.00 in Wave 3 of (1). The Brexit high in VIX was 26.72, which would be a fitting Wave 5 of (1) peak in VIX.

Simply put, Wave (1) must break the Ending Diagonal trendline to qualify it as a Super Cycle Wave (c) decline.
