General Market Summary: Updated Banister Market and Elliott Wave Views on SP 500
March 23rd pre-market call
On Stockwits (Username @stockreversals) in the $ES_F E MINI Futures thread: (Everyone was BEARISH that morning) Note the date and time on the notes… this was a pure Elliott Wave read, a 5th wave had met all conditions at 2172 ES overnight. More evidence markets can be projected based on Behavioral Patterns, lots of math, and a few other indicators to keep me in check…
Forward a week later after a nice rally
Back on March 29th…
I suggested a rally to 2784 in an ABC fashion off the lows was likely on March 29th, Sunday. We hit 2784 on the nose this past Thursday, pulled back, popped to around 2809 in a spillover top then closed the market day around 2790 on SPX and 2784 on futures. So we have an ABC rally, typical Bear cycle rally of a 50% retracement… Chart from March 29th report below for reference:
April 6th Report
Last Sunday we were at inflection, and we went north not south… chart repeated for reference (We hit 2790’s Thursday)
NOW WHAT?? April 13th comments
Well that is what everyone wants to know. Various Advisor’s whom I consider intelligent and savvy differ on opinions here, the market once again at an inflection point like last week when we were stuck on the 38% retracement ceiling. Frankly there are not many out there putting out a firm projection right now, and I do not blame them.
I try not to get too far ahead of myself with my interpretation of Elliott Wave patterns, preferring to stay in the current most likely wave moment rather than try to jump more than maybe 1 wave movement ahead.
I look for clues to tell me we are in a new wave, right now that’s around 2720 on the ES Futures contract from last Thursdays highs give take a few points.
With that said, if someone pinned me to come up with a near term forecast, I would lean to a further upside rally to various levels. Best ones (SPX) would be 2893 and or 2933 areas ahead. Both of those areas should provide strong resistance to the Bull rally for now, and a normal pullback from there would make normal sense both behaviorally and market wise off the 2190 (SPX) lows.
Should we not be able to take out that 2818 Thursday high and or 2790 area again early this week, there is risk of a decline towards 2550-2580 areas near term.
The real question is … Is the Bear Market Over? Back on March 23rd, the day of the bottom I publicly declared the bottom was in pre market on various social media outlets. We had met a 5 wave Futures decline at 2172 from 3397 at at that point in my view, and a rally to 2784 seemed likely if we got past 2640 area target.
Now it’s much tougher to call because we have major economic dislocations on the street, but the Fed fighting that will trillions of infusions. Gold is ripping to multi year highs in a Bull market with the paper infusion.
Given the severity and speed of the decline, there is a chance that a price low of 2190 SPX was put in for this Bear cycle, with a pullback obviously due. Near term, I’m focused on making profits on swings whether up or down and my advice to members will be based on market action and my view of the wave patterns. If we rally towards 2893 to 2933 area look for resistance there, after that it’s 3043 and 3135.
Bottom Line? If someone pressed me I would lean to a bit more upside near term and would probably not get crazy shorting unless I saw a material break of 2720 on the ES Futures contract.
Charts: SP 500, NASI vs. SP 500, GOLD, Smart Money Read
Levels to watch on SP 500, 2893, 2933, 3043, 3135, 3170 All have relationships to the decline from 3393. Best projection is a top at 2893-2933 with a strong pullback or worse.
2720’s short term key support
Smart Money Bulls are long the market, Dumb Money largely on sidelines, like prior market bottoms
NASI vs. SP 500 Chart: SP 500 rallying off major indicator washout lows on NASI (Mclellan Oscillator)
The March 2020 low readings on this NASI indicator similar to Dec 2018 Bear lows, except this NASI crashed in 5 weeks not multiple months, creating extreme conditions for a bounce up…
GOLD in Bull Market- Gold Market Trading advisory service coming next few months!
I called a low at 1450 a few Sunday reports ago. We are in Wave 5 up to all time highs I think or close. 1780’s initial resistance likely. Nice Fibonacci Patterns here
Other Notes: Venus Retrograde and prior crash lows, The Oil Indicator, and Bulls and Bears Ratio
Of interest, several major Bear Market lows have occurred when Venus goes into Retrograde. The last ones being during the Depression in 1932, October of 2002 (Market low with a re-test higher low in March 2003), and March 6th 2009 (3 days prior to the ultimate low). The next date for Venus Retrograde is May 13th, something to watch.
Oil bottomed in the last major crash about a month before the market bottom in March 2009, we are seeing a similar possible pattern now in the SP 500 with Oil rallying last week but with SP 500 possibly needing one more leg down yet.
The Percentage of Investment Advisors who are bullish has tanked to just 33%, up 2 points from 31% last Sunday. Bears are still at 36%, down from 41% recently. Still contrarily Bullish near term.

Corona Economy- thinking outside the box
Swing Trading Ideas: I’m calling it the Corona Economy in terms of thinking of Stock ideas short to intermediate term. What MAY work in the new environment?
Last week once again numerous winners off of this list during the week.
Among them GDX ETF (Gold Miners up 13%), GOLD up over 10%, CHWY up 28%, DEAC up 25%, GMAB up 10% and you get the idea. We hit CHWY and DEAC at the Flagship SRP Swing Trade service for big gains!
This week and for the near term period another list of Corona Ideas and more.
Themes you should be thinking about loosely are Internet Hotspots, Remote Freelancing, Vaccines, Telehealth, Cloud Security, Internet Technology, E Sports, Video, Gold, Online documents, Networks, Streaming and more
Consider Catasys as just one example of a Telehealth play, CATS. There is a long term play from my Tipping Point Stocks service. Ripping from $8.90 to $22 in last several weeks. Chewy last week ripped higher after we bought in the prior week at the Swing Trade service, online pet supplies. DEAC ripped higher as well, the Draft Kings SPAC shell we bought a few weeks prior, knowing that it would close on April 9th and would run up even though there are no sports right now… the market looks ahead 9 months!
So here is a list of symbols and quick notes for this week and the period ahead to keep an eye on.
(We may or may not alert some of these ideas below at our SRP service)
DOCU- Corona Idea of the week… Online documents, looks like a breakout coming after recent pullback and pop. Was on the list a few weeks back before the surge from 82 to 98, now back near 90
ZS- Cloud Security
LITE- 3 week ascending base, Internet technology
NFLX- On the list several weeks ago from 290, ripped higher and a nice 3 week base. Online streaming
GOLD- Breakout last week off our list, but leader in Gold mining (Barrick Gold)
CRUS- Apple supplier on a recovery?
DPZ- Dominoes pizza, 8 week overall base. On the list weeks back… food delivery, teens love it…
EHTH- E Health insurance based play, got hit on a Muddy Waters hit piece, but recovers?
SDGR- Multi week base, recent IPO. Artificial Intelligence for drug discovery and more, smart money holders
LVGO- Chronic condition management for self insured employers, recent IPO
FVRR- Remote freelance gig economy, I brought this up weeks ago on the list.
INSG- Hot Spots for internet access
SLGG- Maybe a stretch here, riskier, but Super League runs online E Sports, could see uptick in usage
Vaccine Plays– GILD, BCRX naming just a few
Testing Plays- GMRK, ABT
