yes, my accuracy isn't the greatest, it's hard lining up on the screen from February but overall (with a degree of tolerance) we must be pretty close to a drop down.  If a 1-2-3 plays out over next couple of days......... $$$ . C

S&P joins the Bear party with a new lower low.  Similar set up to the FTSE100 and Dow tracing almost exactly the same as S&P.

 

Ending triangle showed the market top followed up by a larger triangle break and kiss back at 62%Fib in classic A-B-C retrace form and then rebounded back off the kiss strongly.  New lower low confirms the move for me.  Now looking to add to my Short positions on the next reasonable retrace rally.  In Dow terms this could run for 1000 points.

A fellow jaded Bear ?  I know that feeling.  I am reminded that I should be trading what I see and in retrospect this rally was much longer and stronger than I had thought it would be but given recent history on these markets and the CB drugs being handed out like candy we should not be surprised that Fib 76% and even 88% are more common than normal conditions.

 

One thing to watch out for is loosing faith and switching tack just as the market turns in our favour.  Having said that if we do not get a serious bear run now then new all time highs have to come into serious consideration.

 

For now I think a decent Bear to Fib 38% on the daily (circa 1000 points from the top on the Dow and same on others) is on the cards.  Japan has shown the way.  For today US opening will tell a tale.  I can foresee a short rally up to the fib 50% (also short term resistance - red line on chart) off yesterdays last high before a large plunge, especially as investors start to fear what might happen over the weekend and consolidate their positions (also a month end of course and bank holiday in the UK at least).

 

Here is my S&P hourly chart (thoughts anyone?):

VIX has just spiked to 15.5 from 13.5 at the beginning of the week.  Lower lows on all markets except FTSE but that is well on the way and breaking my lower tramline.  I really think we can declare this a Bear move, for the medium (next week or so) term at least, after that we shall see.  Shorts are the only stock index trades worth he risk, sell the rallies.

I have been slotting in a few buys along the way, so I suppose working within my longer term plan

 

The next step I am looking for is just below 17600

Ah ok, my view is this one will run a long time so I'm sticking in for the Fib 38% as an initial target area.  If this turns out to be a strong bear run going Long is a high risk strategy with poor risk return ratio.  Such a bear run moves very fast and very long, the last one (4 Nov 2015) only took 5 or 6 days to make the first run and dropped 900 points on the Dow.

I understand what you are saying. If you look at the charts set at "Weekly" we can see that drop. However it is followed by a bounce back to 17915.

 

I am working on the lower end of my shorts to be below 17240.

Yep and we should see something similar this time too and then we should get some clarity on whether we will get a bigger drop or push on up.  Given the rally was stronger this time I expect a longer drop.  Daily Chart resistance level looks good around 17100.

I guess the answer to that is Oh Yes!  FTSE and DAX have made fresh lower lows (the FTSE after being reluctant to do so on Friday).  Will be interesting to see what happens when the Us opens in 15 but for my money we can look forward to a red week!  Make the most of it is my view but tread carefully we could see some swift moves in both direction before sustained drops, sell the rallies.

The US markets are opening in bearish fashion, a close below recent lows will be a welcome sign for Bears.  So far the US markets (DOW and S&P at least) have turned at a plausible big picture W2 (but more on that in the weeks to come).  For now we have seen a 1-2 move in classic 1-5 down and A-B-C up followed up by another 1-2 of wave 3 and now, if or when we see a lower low we can judge the Wave 3 bear to be on.  Cue a red week and a run down towards 17000.  If this is the beginning of a long bear run we should get a significant retrace from about this point but let's worry about that later and ride this bear...

For anyone still active out there, and given the importance of the US markets I guess that should be most of you, I reckon we are in a EW1-2 retrace within the larger Wave 3.  This should complete around the Fib 50% (near the last little resistance level).  You might need to go all the way to the 5 mins chart to see the A-B-C, such is the nature of a strong wave 3 that it is hard to spot classic EW wave motions on the hourly charts.

 

Here is the S&P and Dow (expect something similar if a bit more damped down on the FTSE/DAX owing to these markets being closed).  On the S&P the 50% looks favourite right now.

 

Anyone got a different take?

Hi Mercury

 

I find your take on the charts etc. very thoughtful. I think I will be volunteering you to run a course on them for us mere mortals.

 

My thoughts tend to be a bit more basic. I have just been able to take a small profit between 17703.9 and 17782.6, okay missing the tops and bottom but it worked for me.

 

I am now looking for a further drop, my next target being 17650

I  forgot to mention my previous target was 17850 (for up of course) but felt that this was a little too much bounce back

I doubt I am nearly competent enough nor experienced enough to be a credible instructor on this stuff, I get more wrong that right, although I suspect it will always be so.

 

If you are short term trading or day trading be careful with my analysis as it is geared towards longer term trading and I aim to identify market turns within a fairly wide margin of error (e.g. 50 points on the Dow).  However once in a major move, and I believe we are in a major move down now I will seek to take smaller timescale entries but will still hold them for the whole ride (hence my mention of the 5 mins chart to find the A-B-C on this retrace).

Don't get me wrong, these occassional opportunities are viewed as just that.

 

I have been working on a longer term strategy, this being over months not so much days.

 

I may miss out on a majority of the highs and lows but in the longer term I am seeming to be in front (wish  never said that!)

 

The decisions I make are my own and therefore I am the one to blame if it goes pair shaped

    • Gold on the rise, as Brent crude and natural gas show signs of impending weakness Ongoing trends look likely to continue, with gold grinding higher as Brent crude and natural gas show signs of potential impending weakness. Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 09 February 2023  Gold grinds higher after collapse into trendline support Gold ended last week with a bang as price collapsed into a fresh four-week low. However, despite growing calls for a reversal across a number of asset classes, this week has seen equity markets and the dollar turn back in the direction of their prevailing trend. Given the close correlation between the dollar and gold, this signals the potential for another move higher for precious metals if money does not flow into the dollar. For gold, the current grind higher looks likely to continue, with a break back below the recent low of $1861 required to create a fresh bearish outlook. Source: ProRealTime Brent crude rebound takes price back up towards descending trendline Brent crude has spent much of the week regaining lost ground following a bearish turn that saw $10 sliced off the price in the space of a fortnight. The wider trend does remain bearish, with the descending trendline and Fibonacci resistance levels bringing the potential for another bearish turn before long. With price currently at the 61.8% retracement ($85.20), there is a good chance we see the bears come into play before long. Watch for a move through 80 on the stochastic to signal a bearish turn from a momentum perspective. To the upside, we would need to see a push up through the $89.01 resistance level to bring confidence of a more protracted bullish rebound. Source: ProRealTime Natural gas turns lower from Fibonacci resistance Natural gas has turned lower once again after a rebound in the early part of the week. This is a market that has been a consistent performer for the bears, with the relatively balmy European winter ensuring that storage levels remain well topped up throughout the drawdown period of the year. While we did see a push into the 76.4% Fibonacci level on Tuesday, price has been reversing lower in line with the wider bearish trend. With a very consistent bearish trend still in play, we would need to see a push up through the $2.789 swing-high to bring about a more positive outlook. Until then, further downside looks likely.

    • ASX 200 afternoon report: 9th of February 2023 Find out all the latest information on the ASX 200 market. Updated as of 9th February, 3.00 pm AEDT.   Source: Bloomberg   Indices ASX Coal Dividend S&P/ASX 200 Interest rate  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Thursday 09 February 2023  The ASX 200 trades 43 points (-0.57%) lower at 7487 at 3.00 pm Sydney time. The ASX 200 has slumped today, taking its lead from a fall on Wall Street, as Fed Speakers hit the wires to beat the hawkish drums and remind markets that higher rates will be required for longer to bring down inflation. IT sector The tech sector experienced losses today, led by Google. Google fell 7.44% after its new AI intelligence chatbot Bard underwhelmed Sezzle fell 8.53% ZIP fell 5.91% Megaport fell 5.65% as it elected not to pay a dividend Novonix fell 4.72% to $1.72. AGL fell 11% after reporting a loss of $ 1.1 billion for the first half of the year. It also slashed guidance and its interim dividend to 8c per share. Elsewhere, Real Estate heavyweight Mirvac slumped 5% to $2.28 as wet weather, interest rate hikes, and labour shortages limited its first-half earnings. Financial sector The pressure of this week’s RBA rate hike and intensification in the fight for new deposits has hada negative effect on all banks apart from ANZ. ANZ has added 0.23% to $23.85 after its upbeat trading update NAB fell 0.8% to $31.80 Westpac fell 0.36% to $23.82 CBA fell 0.4% to $109.89. Mining sector The 40% fall in the price of coal out of Newcastle since the start of the year continues to weigh on the coal miners. Whitehaven coal fell 5.62% to $8.06 New Hope fell 4.9% to $5.81 Yancoal fell 4.62% to $5.87 Coronado Coal fell 4.65% Fortescue Metals added 0.89% to $22.68 BHP added 0.02% to $48.13 Rio Tinto fell 0.4% to $123.65. Technical analysis We view the ASX 200 as being stretched to the upside and overbought after five straight weeks of gains. For the Elliott Wave followers, there is a five-wave advance from the October 6411 low to this week’s 7567.7 high. All of which warn that a pullback is looming. A break of support at 7460/50 (coming from recent lows) would indicate that a medium-term high is in place and that a corrective pullback is underway. We continue to favour trimming longs ahead of the bull market 7632 high and looking to either buy a sustained break of the 7632 high or a pullback into the 7200/7000 support area.
