Stock Market Cyclic Turning Points– Current Market Outlook

Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis May 19, 2008 - 12:16 PM GMT

By: Jim_Curry

Stock-Markets Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShort-term Outlook
For the short-term, a minor cycle up was due to take the various indexes higher into approximately May 19 th , which was plus or minus a day in either direction. Once the next minor cycle peak is complete, then a retrace lower should be seen into around May 26 th , which is also plus or minus a day in either direction (chart 1). At minimum, that drop should take the index back to or below it's 9-day moving average, however there is still the potential that a larger drop could be seen, simply again based upon the extended position of the 45-day cycle. However, for this 45-day component to actually confirm a peak in place, an intraday push below the 1384.01 figure would now be needed, the new ‘reversal point' for this cycle.


For the short-term then, should the pattern of an early-week rally into resistance be seen, then traders would want to be looking for technical indications of a peak forming - one which should give way to lower prices into May 26 th , plus or minus a day. Resistance for the move is still first at the 200-day moving average for the SPX (around the 1427 level), and then the monthly projected resistance high of 1435, which is plus or minus a few points in either direction.

Mid-term Outlook

Stepping way back, the larger 360-day and four-year cycles bottomed at the March low, which confirmed several week's back with the weekly close above VTL-1 (chart 2). With that, there has been noted an inverse ‘head and shoulder' pattern on the daily/weekly chart of the SPX, a pattern which targets a test of the low-1500's (or higher) with the same. And, if this assessment is correct, then whatever declines that should develop with the smaller daily cycles in the weeks/months ahead should ideally mark buying opportunities - in the anticipation of the 1500's being hit anytime between now and year end.

Even with the above, the SPX could run into several problems this summer. The 45-day cycle is now very extended at 43 days along – and thus is due for it's normal correction off the top (chart 3). This cycle is due to low-out somewhere in the May 26 – June 9 timeframe. If and when this cycle does confirm a peak (right now this would require and intraday push below 1384.01 SPX CASH – but which should continue to move up in the days ahead), then again the normal expectation should be for a retrace back to, towards, or below the 45-day moving average on the next downward phase of the same.

This moving average is currently at the 1368-1369 level, but is moving up at about 2-3 points per day (chart 3). If and when we see a 45-day cycle correction play out going forward, then again traders would be wanting to look for technical indications to buy the market once again, as the next 45-day up phase should take the SPX back to or (ideally) above whatever high ends up forming on the current upward phase. In terms of time, the next 45-day

cycle peak (the one that follows the current rotation) should be seen somewhere in mid-to-late June, which would then lead to lead to yet another correction with the same into late-July or early-August, which is where the next 45-day and 120-day combo lows are currently set to occur. That low would not only end up as a 120-day bottom, but also as a 45-day cycle bottom as well. That 45/120 day combo low would then be expected to give way to a very strong rally into and after the November election - which also fits with normal seasonal patterns.
