By Robert Folsom, Senior Writer for Elliott Wave International

As you read and look at this page, please know that the chart is the star of the show. My description will add only a few details.

The chart published less than two weeks ago in Bob Prechter's Elliott Wave Theorist. The rectangular box is plain to see: It envelopes the huge S&P 500 rally that began last March -- a gain of 61.5% and 430 points, as of Oct. 18.

But there's a two-part truth to the rally -- and that is what the box really shows.

Part one shows the "wall of worry" -- basically March through August. That's when the media and experts were overwhelmingly negative about stocks. They were surprised by the rally. Remember?

Part two shows the more recent time of "euphoria" -- basically September and October. The media and experts turned positive. The market was all about "green shoots" and "recovery."

You see when most of the rally unfolded. Six months of serious worry produces a 373-point climb, whereas "two months of euphoria produces only 57 S&P points."

Now, the two-part truth about this rally is an easy story to tell. It's literally a few lines and notations on a price chart. Yet have you seen or read ANYTHING like this in the past two weeks? Has anyone else pointed out that over the past two months, the stock market "rally" has in fact slowed to a crawl?

As you looked at the chart, perhaps you noticed that the decline, which began in 2007, and in turn the recent rally, are both on a similarly large scale. The full version of this chart shows how important that "similarity of scale" really is (Elliott labels were excluded in consideration of Theorist subscribers).

Price action in the stock market this week has only strengthened the analysis in Bob Prechter's October Theorist issue.

What's more, you can read the very latest forecasts in the just-published November issue of the Elliott Wave Financial Forecast -- both publications (plus the tri-weekly Short Term Update) are yours for free -- only during FreeWeek (now through Nov. 11).

Learn more about FreeWeek, and download the November Theorist for more about the above chart.

S&P 500

Yes, I see and have been trying to prepare for it for the last 6 weeks. It seems the SPY at least is now moving in a channel that is just slightly upward. My RSI & MACD daily charts are showing negative divergences to.
