Major Wave 4 reasserted itself late in the week after a typical “B Wave” bounce to the 2470 area. As Monday morning pre market report was published last week, we told our SRP Members to look for a rally to about 2470 from oversold readings. The SP 500 hit 2474, topped out and filled a gap in the charts and pivoted lower to end the week at 2425. We had a clear ABC pattern though from the 2491 Major Wave 3 highs at the end of the week. This would indicate a likely bounce rally near term.
Major Wave 4 we have discussed as likely to start around a Major 3 projected high of 2491 which we forecasted 7 weeks ago. As we hit 2491 the market topped and now we see human behavioral patterns taking over as headlines are digested as negative news during Major Wave 4. Sentiment turns south and so do the markets and underlying stocks.
With a clear short term ABC pattern, we MAY have finished the larger “A WAVE” of an expected A B C Major 4. 2395 is near term support. Keep in mind Options expired this past Friday as well.
Weekly charts show the SP 500 in Major Wave 4 on the downside, minimal targets are 2395 but we said a few weeks ago to look for a 5-7% index correction. Underneath the large cap indexes the Small and Mid cap indexes are getting hammered pretty hard.
SP 500 Weekly:
Small Caps Update: IWM ETF in 5 wave waterfall decline, should bounce
Other market notes:
Bullish Investment Advisors have dropped to 50% from 59% Major 3 highs, typical during correction
NYSE- 36 new highs against 155 new lows on Friday, thinning of market leaders raises trading risks
Chinese stocks are continuing to lead, SRP was early on this trend and we have been profiting. PE Ratios are expanding as the market participants feel more confident in certain names and secular growth
Major Wave 4 has corrected 3% on the SP 500 so far, we said look for 5-7%
Nasdaq targets 6124 area for a downside objective with a gap at 6081 during Major 4 to watch
Put to Call ratio at 1.14 on Friday, this is a contrarian buy signal short term
Biotech Notes: We projected weeks ago that the XBI ETF could fall to the 71-72 area as a normal correction, and we continue to look for that in the weeks ahead. SRP has stayed on the sidelines since punching out of another profitable LABU trade weeks ago
XBI Chart Update:
Gold Notes: Leading along with Chinese Stocks on a relative basis. We are looking for 1377 on an intermediate basis for Gold, but 1300 is a triple top resistance zone
Swing Trading – Forced profit taking pays big
One of our rules at SRP in terms of Swing Trading is to force ourselves to take profits on trades as market participants get giddy. We like to sell 1/2 of a position on the way towards our target and bank gains and then ride the remainder. We also look for peaks in sentiment or “C Waves” on rallies to exit while everyone is buying. The best time to take profits is when everyone is bullish and high fiving each other at the water cooler at work. We know where these Fibonacci pivots lie and we exit the party early on purpose.
The market is really nothing more than a group of willing buyers or willing sellers, and when there are willing buyers that is the time to sell in terms of being a swing trader. Being overly greedy will eventually get you into trouble, we prefer a disciplined approach. This has led to a 77% success rate since inception in September of 2013 in all types of up and down markets since then.
JD sample- 18% Gains…
Recently we entered JD near 41 and exited the final 1/2 at 48.50, right near the peak high in sentiment and C wave pattern. Now the stock is all the way back down to $40. The valuation was very stretched and the bullish articles that were coming out were plentiful at 48.50, that is when you sell… not when you buy.
Swing Trade Ideas:
Although the market is in Major Wave 4, the relative strength leaders you can still focus on for opportunities. This week we actually find a larger list than last week as the market has corrected. Below is a list of names we like.
