An argument can be made for a minor 1-2-3 impulse over past week ending on 7-06 with a small subwave 3; if it really is, then a wave 4 sharp pullback is expected (since wave 2 was so flat, by alternating wave theory any 4th wave will be sharp), possibly back to 24240, but not below wave 1 top, which was quite weak; if we see this, it begs for a 5th wave impulse to retest 245 resistance; estimating possible high of 24680 = Fibo 0.618, unless it also truncates; R2 at 247 will be fiercely tenacious.
I favor the following argument instead, and I fear any rise significantly above 24540 is unlikely, given price action, patterns and the miasmic market milieu:
A is forming now in the at base of Dow flagpole Wave A, colored in chart:
Wave A cut 1400 off index and instead of a robust Wave B to form a right shoulder, as many of us anticipated, we got the pennant- a very formation with strong R at 24500, now tested x4; these are typical continuation patterns for downtrend
The closing Dow price on 7-06 of 24457 is just 10 points under the 0.50 Fibo retrace for the ascending from which it broke down- typically we expect break from asc-wedge to react up to 1/2 height; now it has
(NB: NOT the A wave drop height--> use the height = 25401 - 23531 = -1870, expect 0.50 rise to 23531 + 935 = 24,466!)
When break down from comes, it is expected to typically fall equal to or even greater than the drop down flagpole (=> -1400, expect 23054 or lower is possible)
The rapidly closing triangle suggests that breakdown will arrive on or before 07-13
Wave C of an A-B-C wave cycle is the strongest and most corrective reaction wave, expect panic selling to begin when S1, reaching back to October 2017, is breached; this could easily drive index under 23K - possibly as low as 21800 at S2 reaching to Aug 2017
Wave D reaction to Wave C is shown as pure hypothetical, as a possible 0.618 Fibo rally to 23931 in August (given C at 23054); what actually happens after C remains to be seen
Wave E may or not materialize, it can be truncated, but if it does appear, it will bear down hard - a real crash (thank the Donald if it breaks under 20K!).
Recovery anticipated as a 1-2-3-4-5 wave motive impulse to carry index back to the long reaching back to 2010, possibly beginning after mid-term elections in November. Estimates for index shown are purely hypothetical approximations, based on Fibos and possible supports. I do not make predictions, only forecasting possibles based on wave theory, which is sometimes quite erroneous.
Feedback and constructive criticism is always welcome!
Good luck to all of us.
