S&P 500 Price Forecast: SPX Begins Pullback from Resistance

S&P 500 Price Forecast - Stock Markets Look Tired

S&P 500, DOW JONES, NASDAQ 100 RECOVERY SET TO CONTINUE

The stock market is bouncing, for now, and is anticipated to continue to hold a modest bid in the short-term. However, the outlook more broadly speaking still looks quite bearish in the second half of the year.

The S&P 500 showed some real power off the May low and in the past couple of sessions it has dipped a bit, which is to be expected. The dip could offer would-be longs an opportunity to continue playing a bounce. But only a bounce.

The rally isn’t expected to go much past 4300, which means the large chunk of the bounce may be over in terms of price. But there may be some time burnt between now and where the S&P ends up before another leg lower develops.

Recovery bounces in an ongoing bear sequence tend to last between 4 to 8 weeks. Right now we are at about 2 weeks, so there appears to be a little time on the market’s side.

The price action to date has been quite bearish for stocks, yet we have not seen any real kind of capitulation or fear by market participants. Sure the VIX has risen a few times into the high 30s, but it appears that is becoming the high-end of a new normal in vol.

The lack of a significant spike in volatility suggests the Pavlov response by the market to ‘buy-the-dip’ is still well intact despite how far we have come off the highs. What we have typically seen over the years during this bull market is that when the market gets 10-20%+ off the highs fear rises sharply (VIX spikes) and a bottom is put in. What we are seeing now marks a change in behavior. From where I sit it is a very bearish one at that.

The bottom line is that fear tends to rise in-line or disproportionately compared to the depth of the decline and marks a wash-out low. This does not seem to be the case this go around. The thinking at this time is that until we see the VIX spike to 50,60 or even higher on waterfall type price action the downward trajectory for stocks will continue.

The Dow Jones is a bit stronger, as it has been, and this is likely to continue. But it too will get hit hard with the market if we are to see a broad sell-off develop at some point. Look for the 34k area to be about as high as the Dow can get if the bearish outlook is to hold up.

The upward trajectory is displaying signs of softening, prompting short-term traders to elevate their stop-loss levels. Bond Yields: The 10-year yields are poised to conclude wave v) of C of (B). This development is pivotal as it will uphold the strength of the Dollar DXY. Consequently, positions in gold or silver should be refrained from until yields and the Dollar reach their peaks.

I've been meticulously observing a substantial Elliott Wave Triangle pattern dating back to 2008, which now seems to have reached its culmination.

Crude Oil: Progressing steadily on its upward trajectory, crude oil is set for further ascension.

The core intent of the smart layer network is to bring real life use-cases to Web3, the project’s team firmly believes that, by infusing useable features into Web3 it will undoubtedly usher it mainstream. Critically looking at Smart Layer would expose that, after carefully and critically analyzing the existence of different token models, it is found that, there is truly no worthwhile use-case, thus the project seeks to curb the conundrum. In a bid to get a grasp of what smart tokens are, view it through the lens of how websites firstly started rendering digital services, then slowly evolving to apps. With Smart Layer, the focus is to empower tokens to do what websites and apps had hitherto done.
