Last week we suggested that the 2532 lows were in fact the final lows of Intermediate Wave 4, the correction from 2872 Wave 3 highs. We felt at the end of the week that the shallow pullback we had projected after hitting 2754 highs off those 2532 lows was winding down. On Friday in our pre-market forecast we put out the following chart:
We were looking for an upside breakout of the Bull Flag per that chart above. Sure enough a big move up as the SP 500 rallied 43 points to 2747, which is a new “Closing High” off the Wave 4 2532 lows. This shows likely ongoing strength in the market ahead as Wave 5 up continues.
We should see more upside ahead. The chart below is updated and shows that shallow wave 2, which again would portend more strength ahead if we are right.
Biotech also is in a nice consolidation and should get some strength ahead as well:
XBI ETF Chart: 34 day EMA is support
GOLD- Still looks like a nice bullish consolidation: 8 week pattern looks strong for more upside.
Bullish Advisors have dropped to 48.5% from 68% at the 2872 SP 500 market highs, this is a contrarian bullish sign as more advisors have gone bearish or neutral.
Last week we used the NASI indicator to explain why we thought the 2532 lows would hold for the bottom of Wave 4, and we can see even with the late week surge up, that this indicator is only just now turning up
CNN Fear Gauge:
Still running at extreme fear readings of 18, even with the Friday surge, again a bullish indicator:
