S&P 500, DOW JONES & NASDAQ 100 FORECAST: MARKET REMAINS VULNERABLE

The S&P 500 appears to be set for more weakness, or a test of the recent lows at 4278 at the least. It would seem we need to see a bit of a wash-out to turn things around, but perhaps if the lows hold and we see the market turn and create a short-term higher-high we could see a rally mount.

It’s a difficult spot from a tactical standpoint given the choppiness we have seen. The thinking is that shorts have the upper hand, but confidence is muted on it being an ‘easy’ trade. Longs have little appeal without a break above the trend-line off the record high and a return to an uptrend (higher highs/higher lows), or a wash-out type low that indicates an exhaustion in selling.

The Nasdaq 100 is closing in on a test of an important uptrend slope. The trend-line running higher from September 2020 is a sturdy one with several inflection points giving it serious validity. Not far below the line is the 200-day moving average, so you could make the case that they are in relative confluence. The area from around 14385 down to 14032 is an important one.

If we see some volatile price action that turns the tides higher, then it could offer traders an opportunity to join the trend higher with a backstop in place. A breakdown below support would indicate a larger move lower is underway as ‘buy-the-dip’ fails.

The Dow Jones is a mess with price action chunking its way sideways in a range. The bottom of the range at 33613 is effectively in confluence with the 200-day moving average at 33530 (& climbing). Given the chop-fest we are seeing in the Dow I’m inclined to stay away from it for now until we get further clarity in price action.

    • Video presentation from Dr McCullough who has been posting on covid since the start. Reveals some truly concerning information on the current situation re; covid and the vaccines. - Looks at independent safety oversight (none). - Treatment protocols early and late (officially there is still no early treatment) - CDC reporting (misleading systematic asymmetrical bias) - Delta and legacy alpha data (99% of cases are now delta) - Major conflicts of interest. Really horrifying that this worldwide trial with intended 100% participation has no safety oversight at all, there is no one to stop it as the data on the vaccines is increasingly disturbing. Scientific, covers the important points of many research papers, fast paced but clear and pointed. The most important video I've seen on covid and the vaccines, covers a lot of ground, absolutely must watch. (1h:50min) Pub'd 24 Sept 2021.   The Covid testimony of Dr Peter McCullough – Part 1: Cancelled for telling the truth - The Conservative Woman  
    • I'd go with that - I'm working off the Interaction of the Interest Rate cycle and the Stock Market cycle - Stock turned Inflationary from a cycle perspective late 2016, from deflationary which started 2000, for that 16 year cycle everything deflationary has happened and the action to try to create inflation - Robert Pretcher (Elliott Wave International) wrote "Conquer the crash" in 1999 - although he is/was wrong on the stock market outlook, the rest of the book was pretty much spot on from a central bank/economic aspect tackling deflationary pressures etc From a cyclic point of view the stock market cycle from 2000 basically repeated the 1929 crash cycle, x cycles back in the same stock market cycle - last time BoE Int rates were depressed for 22 years was from 1929 until 1951 which coincided with said stock market cycle  We've a generation of people who think Interest rates are always this low! the shock should be in the property market and especially anyone with a Buy to Let Investment property that has got a bad/poor yield as well as mortgaged to the hilt - they'll more than likely see negative returns once taxation and costs running it are taken into account, which will be good for FTB's as they'll have a nice supply of affordable housing stock to pick from as the rise to normality for Int rates should then cause a dip in the property market (possibly)  Different rules apply to the markets during deflationary and Inflationary cycles and you find that central banks aren't on it in terms of getting it right which is why they got caught out in 2003 / 2009 and now with Inflation to which they [BoE] should react to Inflationary pressures by raising rates even though we all know for some time Inflation has been occurring Fun times
    • Hi @THT Traders now see 40 basis points of tightening this year to take the key rate to 0.5%, compared with around 20 basis points last week. They also see further rate increases next year, betting that borrowing costs will climb to 1.25% in November 2022. According to Bloomberg. Yet there’s a growing sense that higher rates risk damaging the U.K.’s fragile economic recovery. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg have cut their estimate for 2022 growth by 0.4 percentage points to 5.1%.        MongiIG
