Major Corrective Wave 4 down ongoing or near Market Rally?
We had a nice bounce up this past week in the SP 500, the main index we track for our Forecast Models at SRP. We had projected a rally to 2462 area in Pre-Market in the Monday morning report to start the week from the 2420 area. The rally popped to 2455, just 7 points shy and then spent the rest of the week wallowing around.
SP 500 daily and weekly charts below:
Our models still call for 2395 as a target for a minimal downside for the SP 500 index as part of Major Wave 4. However, we have already seen a 7% decline from top to bottom in the Small Cap Russell 2000 and about the same in the Mid Caps. You may recall many weeks ago we projected a 5-7% correction for the SP 500, the lower tier indexes have already hit that.
IWM ETF Chart: 7% decline top to bottom, now a bounce after 5 waves down
We also see oversold indicators such as the percentage of NASDAQ stocks over their 50 day moving average at only 40%. For reference, the recent high reading was 67% in early July. The markets are clearly working off overbought and high sentiment readings over the last few weeks or so.
Net new 52 week highs vs lows is at the lowest reading (Lows) since November Major Wave 2 bottom last year.
The CNN Fear and Greed graph is near the November 2016 Major Wave 2 lows as well:
What does all this evidence add up to? Its a stock pickers market, just thinner now for winners during theMajor Wave 4 correction, but opportunities are presenting themselves as well. We look for oversold conditions on individual names that have corrected and where fundamentals match up with charts. At the 2420 lows the correction would be abnormal in terms of the pattern of the waves and the only 3% or so decline from the 2491 highs. Therefore, we would prefer to see a washout to 2395 or lower on the SP 500 to get more aggressive on oversold names, but we will have to see how the market reacts after Labor Day, we expect volume to be relatively light until the week after this coming week of trading.
Biotech bounced up nicely off our double bottom projection rally to 79: We are still watching 71-72 as support
Gold continues to consolidate, Monday is day 13. We may see a big move this week:
The Bullish Advisors in most recent surveys have dropped from 60% at the highs of Major 3 to 48% currently, this is in concert with this Major 4 correction and sets up for Major 5 to the upside this fall
Chinese stocks finally correcting after a torrid run. PE ratios were expanding fast and some of them are raising money in secondary offerings. BZUN, MOMO, YY, JD and others have corrected hard.
High PE growth stocks are correcting, names like BZUN, ULTA, VEEV etc are taking hits
Materials and Mining booming again? PICK ETF
Rotation possible back into Optical/Networking stocks after nasty correction. Names like AAOI, LITE, OCLR etc.

Dave’s Corner: Trading Thoughts
Valuation matters. BZUN sample
Many traders make the common mistake of chasing an attractive chart to the upside in a hot sector, just because the chart looks good and its a popular symbol on Stocktwits. BZUN is a chinese provider of e commerce services and we had warned on August 17th and prior that the valuation was very stretched. We warned in late July that when Major Wave 4 hits the stock would take a hit. When it hit 35.90 on August 17th we warned again on Stocktwits that the stock was in our words “Dramatically overvalued”. Since the symbol was trending and popular, nobody believed us and we were chided for sure. However, valuations matter and so do business models. This in our opinion is a good growth company but with thin “Grocery store” margins as we called them.
The stock dropped post earnings from $35.90 to $25.74 in 4 days after our warning and Traders didnt know what happened. At SRP we focus on valuations, management, product lines, profit margins, competition, competitive moats, barriers to entry, share structures and the list goes on. We never trade based on a char alone. Our view is there are 5,000 stocks to choose from, choose wisely.
Take gains on big run ups, do not fall in love. We are swing traders at SRP, so discipline is key both in entry and exit. When you are high fiving yourself in the mirror, take some profits…
