Stock Market Correction in Full Swing

Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017 Aug 21, 2017 - 01:24 PM GMT

Current Position of the Market

SPX Long-term trend:  The uptrend should continue after pausing for a correction.

SPX Intermediate trend: An ending pattern appears to be in its last stages of completion.  This should be followed by an intermediate term correction into October.”  The correction has started.

Analysis of the short-term trend is done on a daily-basis with the help of hourly charts. It is an important adjunct to the analysis of daily and weekly charts which discuss longer market trends.

Correction in Full Swing 

Market Overview:

After the 20-wk cycle made its low, a little ahead of its normal schedule, there was a rip-roaring rally at the beginning of last week which undoubtedly caused many to doubt that something serious had started, and thought that the market was ready for another new high.  But by the end of the week, reality should have set in that something more than a short-term dip was occurring.   EWT aficionados warn that 4th wave corrections, especially those of higher degree, can bring a lot of volatility, and this is certainly the way that this correction has started.  It can be confusing!

Whether or not the future brings more swings of this magnitude, only the market knows.  However, it always tips its hand by making moves proportional to the amount of distribution or accumulation which has taken place prior to the beginning of the trend.  At the very top of the market, there was enough distribution to create a P&F count to much lower levels than those already reached.  But we may have come to a point where a shorter-term count has already been filled, and a base is already forming for the next corrective rally.  If we hold this level early next week, we should get another relief bounce.  The positive divergence which is forming in the daily and hourly indicators is certainly suggestive of that, and all we need is confirmation by resisting further selling and getting started on the upside. 

Analysis: (These Charts and subsequent ones courtesy of QCharts.com)

  • Daily chart 
  •  
  • The 20-wk cycle found support on the intermediate, blue mid-channel line for the fourth time since April, but it was for the last time.  On Thursday, that support was finally breached with some downside follow through on Friday.  For the first time since March, we have made a lower-low/lower-high/lower low sequence and, by definition, we are now in a downtrend until the process reverses itself.  We have already defined a short-term channe, and prices will remain in the current downtrend until they break above the top channel line.  Even if they do, they would have to rise above last week’s high of 2474 to attempt reversing the current downtrend pattern.  This is the simplest -- but very effective -- way to analyze the market trend.
  •  
  • If we are really in an intermediate downtrend, the next step will be to drop below the former short-term low of 2405 (red horizontal line).  This would cause breaking a former low of a higher degree than we have already done, and it would be the confirmation we need to suggest that a more important correction
  • than any we have seen since early 2006, has started.
  •  
  • That does not mean that we are going to do this right away.  The index may resist going lower for a little while longer.  Friday’s action suggests that we may have started to build a congestion pattern which will temporarily reverse the current downtrend.  This is supported by positive divergence beginning to show in some of the daily and hourly indicators.  If so, there may already be enough of a base to give us a good bounce before we make the next lower low.  This will have to be confirmed by market action early next week. 
  •  
  •  
  • Hourly chart
  •  
  • The index found support at the bottom of a channel, rallied, and sold off again at the close on Friday.  The index appears to have completed a corrective pattern at Friday’s low and is in the process of retesting that low, before starting a move up on Monday -- which would confirm that view.  If so, the next rally could take us back to the top of the channel and confuse the bears once again. 
  •  
  • Friday’s decline filled a count taken across the congestion level at the 2468 top ,which increases the odds that Friday saw a low and that we are ready to rally toward the top of the channel or a little higher.  But since a lower count was established at the very top, we want to make sure that we do not first make a new low before rallying 
  •  
  • The pattern looks complete and is getting some assistance from the daily indicators, especially the A/D oscillator, which is showing strong positive divergence.  However, we want to make sure by also having a quick turn in the hourly oscillators which I mayhave prematurely marked with positive divergence.   
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • An overview of some important indexes (daily charts)
  •  
  • All the indexes below show that a correction has started.  This time, it’s unanimous.  The leaders are, as always, TRAN and IWM (second and third from the left, bottom row) although you can make a case for SMH (top right) to be the first to establish a top.  Until we see some signs of reversing, we can assume that the correction is still in progress.
  •  
  •  
  • UUP (dollar ETF)
  •  
  • Since making its low at 24.98, UUP has made a limping recovery which does not impress.  At best, it is the beginning of a basing process, and at worst, a consolidation in a downtrend. 
  •  
  •  
  • GDX (Gold Miners ETF)
  •  
  • GDX has followed the 9/10-wk cyclic rhythm to a “T”.  The current rally looks less vigorous than the previous three as price coils into an apex.  It has been unable to get past the 23 level, and since it is now past the peak of its rhythmic pattern, the odds are rapidly increasing that it may have to pull back one more time into the next cycle low before starting anything of consequence.
  •  
  •  
  • Note: GDX is now updated for subscribers throughout the day, along with SPX.
  •  
  • USO (United States Oil Fund)
  •  
  • USO may have found a low at 8.65 which will soon enable it to challenge its secondary corrective channel top.  A consolidation of a few more days just below the top channel line, which holds Thursday’s low, would be a good set-up to push it through its 233-DMA as well.    
  •  
  •  
  • Summary
  •  
  • One could argue that we will not have absolute confirmation that an intermediate downtrend has started until we drop below 2405, and that would be reasonable. That level could, in fact, hold the decline in check for a few weeks, as volatility continues to be the dominant pattern.  However, the odds that the index will eventually retrace to much lower prices by October is still on the front burner.
