S&P 500: An Investor And Traders Guide For The Coming Months

Brian Fletcher on 12/07/2019 3 days ago

The S&P 500 is setting up for extreme moves in 2019.

Extreme machinations in price offer investors opportunities for extreme profits.

Don't be afraid to exit positions and don't suffer from the "fear of missing out" syndrome.

In this article, I'll discuss the two primary paths for the coming machinations in the S&P 500 Stock Index and a view of how active investors and traders position to minimize losses and maximize profits.

Let's start with the monthly chart showing the move up off the 2009 low (birds-eye view). What now seems clear is that the SPX has completed Primary Degree Wave 3 at the high seen on October 3, 2018, and is presently in a corrective 3-wave structure to lower levels, with our ultimate expectation for a move to the 2,245-2,094 region to complete Primary Degree Wave 4 before heading to new all-time highs.

Our immediate expectation is that so long as SPX remains over 2,570 at all times, then all of the move up - as shown on both the Daily chart and the Daily Alt. chart - will conclude in the 2,731-2,743 regions, with a possibility it concludes in the 2,697-region. For investors taking intermediate positions long in sector ETFs, or futures traders, this is an excellent place to exit long positions. Alternatively, if SPX breaks below 2,570, we'll be looking for a retracement against the move down as an opportunity to exit longs and potentially short the SPX.

Monthly S&P 500 Chart

The question then arises as to whether the move up off the pre-Christmas low is an A-wave of a much larger B, as shown on the Daily Alt. Chart, or is all of a larger X structure, as shown on the Daily chart. While the determination of which count won't be known until we're better able to observe the downside structure, what is reasonable to assume is that for a period of time the index level for both the Daily and Alt counts are setting up for lower levels. The Daily Alt count suggests a move down into the low 2,400-region (2,430 to be precise), to be followed by a C-wave up towards 2,800, and then a massive move to our lower target region. Whereas the Daily count will provide a direct move to 2,245-2,094. This is one of those scenarios we as active investors seek to find, where the two most likely alternatives are pointing in the same direction.

S&P Daily Count

Once we can confirm a short-term high is in place in the SPX and observe the downside structure, we'll be in a better position to "probability weight" which count is more likely. From the standpoint of overall time, the Daily Alt count is preferable, as it will gobble up significantly more time throughout the first half of 2019 and resemble more closely what one would expect of a 4th wave of this magnitude. As we're able to determine the downside structure, it may setup a fantastic long opportunity from the 2,400-region up to the 2,800-region, offering up the potential for an intermediate 17% non-leveraged return, followed by an even more fantastic intermediate short.

S&P 500 Daily Alt. Count

In conclusion, it's very likely the downside in the SPX is not over, but the path to lower levels could prove difficult for active investors and traders. Taking profits and looking for reasonable areas of support to re-enter long or short positions can offer tremendous returns. Simply holding out and going along for the ride is not an approach to realizing gains through a 4th wave of this magnitude. Cash is a position too, and exiting at key points and awaiting lower levels to take long-term positions should be the course for most long-term investors.

ES Charts & Morning Update

The recent low in the ES at 2605 came just shy of hitting the 1.00 extension at ES 2600 for the entire move down off the recent ATH. Since that low we have now seen ES make a strong move to the upside. IF we have now seen the swing low for this move down in the ES then we now need to see it clear the resistance zone (2770 - 2862) shown in the Daily Chart .Below there 2824 is the key pivot now in the ES and while we are below that level we can still see further declines into the support zone shown in the 60 Minute chart.

Crude (CL) & Natural Gas (NG) Elliott Wave & Fibonacci Charts & Video

Mike Richards on 16/11/2018 241 days ago

NG has continued to push gradually higher after the large gap up the other week. We have now reached the 123.6% for the a to C wave relationship in the Wave V of what looks to be a diagonal structure. We will need to see a full 5 wave move down with a subsequent retrace and follow through lower before a local high can be considered in and then assess the next move lower for likely levels. It is now more likely that this entire move up is the Minor Degree Wave A of the larger Degree Wave (3) (See daily Chart) and that the next move down will therefore be corrective.

Mike Richards on 22/10/2018 266 days ago

ES Charts & Morning Update:

The recent strong move to the downside has removed any possibility of an immediate impulse count higher in the ES and considering the continued downside price action has now made the smaller ending diagonal count where this move lower would count as the C Wave of the IV very unlikely. IF we still have higher levels to come in the ES before we see the start of a much larger correction then the recent low counts as the bottom of an A Wave down of a larger Wave II within an even larger Ending Diagonal Pattern in the ES.

Bitcoin Charts & Video Update Oct 16th 2018

Mike Richards on 16/10/2018 272 days ago
Bit Coin put in an all time low back in August 2010 at 0.03 relative to the US Dollar. From there we have seen a spectacular rise in both the price and the euphoric sentiment attached to this relatively new instrument and indeed Crypto Currencies in general. The sentiment crescendo d into late last year when Bit Coin reached an all time high of 19918 before commencing a complex multi month correction which has thus far seen this Major Crypto Currency trade as low as 5525. While this has lead to many becoming disillusioned and even calling for the imminent demise of this emerging sector there are as many still expecting further meteoric rises.

Natural Gas NG Charts and Video 9th Oct 2018

Mike Richards on 09/10/2018 279 days ago

In looking at these extensions up in NG, I think it's trying for a price target of 3.453.  Supportive of this is - 1. It's the 3.618 extension for the (c) wave, a common fib for NG, as shown on the 60 minute chart; 2.  It's slightly over the .786 retrace, which I've noticed that NG does a lot - spikes just over the .786; 3.  It lines up as a spike just over where the (Y) wave is 1.382 x the (W) wave; and 4.  The overall 1.382 for the larger (Y) wave lines up spot on the overall .886 retrace level.

If GC can remain below the recent high at 1215.8 and continue lower then we are in the final Minuette Degree Wave (V) of Minor Degree Wave 2 down to the 1149 target level (See Daily Chart). Above 1221.3 then  we are in the ALT Minuette Degree Wave (IV). I have shown the sub wave structure based on the idea that we are going to see higher levels in GC in the ALT 4 count before resuming lower.

S&P 500 Upside Breakout - Don't Lose your Core Positions - Yet!

Brian Fletcher on 30/08/2018 319 days ago
A lot of traders and investors hear the term “Breakout” and wonder what it means.  Intuitively, we know it means that the market has broken through some type of upside resistance.  To use an analogy, imagine a building with three floors, where the market is on the first floor, attempting to break through the ceiling of the 2nd floor. Once it does actually break through what is the ceiling of the first floor and is now on the 2nd floor, the downside support now becomes the 2nd story floor, and the upside becomes the 2nd story ceiling.

Should we see the EUR:USD take out the invalidation level at 1.1627 then the Minute Degree Wave 1 is already complete at the low seen on 15th August and this move up is part of the Minuette Degree A Wave of the Minute Degree wave 2.

Brian Fletcher, one of our TPA Analysts, published an article outlining our expectations for FedEx Corporation with an entry in the $215 - $221 region and a move up to $353.

Here is an excerpt from his article and the chart for FDX:

"In simple terms, we are looking for an entry into FDX in the $215 - $221 region for a move up to $353 during the Miner degree wave 5. That’s 64% of upside during a period we expect a 28% increase in the S&P 500, and one we expect will take no more than 6 – 12 months to realize as both FDX and the S&P conclude their Intermediate Degree wave (3)."

As I read through various articles over the weekend, there is a certain doom and gloom crowd starting to resurface.   As is true in every bull markets, bears continue to cry “wolf” so many times that investor’s become complacent from their inaccuracy, only to miss the opportunity to exit equities near a meaningful high.  By combining both our Elliott Wave and Hurst Timing analysis, the time to cry “wolf” isn’t now, but will most likely occur later this year in the November timeframe, at which time our expectation of an 18-month correction that will then set the platter for another meaningful move higher from those corrective lows.
