The S&P 500 is in long-term Bull Market with price trading above the 50 and 200 and 800 week emas. The 50 week is currently up trending, but price is above a long-term , so expect a correction with in the ongoing Bull Market back to the 30 or 50 emas, or the lower uptrend line. Price is following the upper up, and there is no reason why it won’t just continue going up. If we do get a correction a return to the mean would bring price down to 3050. The candle from last week was cancelled by the long green candle from this week, implying higher prices.
We are coming up on the anniversary of the Christmas Eve massacre, when prices bottomed at 2347. Looking at the pattern we have a 600 point a wave up to 2954. Followed by a triangle or flag b wave, 300 points wide, that ended at 2850. So now we are in the c wave, which should either be the width of the triangle up, which we have reached, or equal in size to the a wave, implying a top around 3450.
The Market is in a Long-Term Bull Market on the daily, with the 50 above the 200 and 800 . Price is above a long-term and has been trading outside the , which typically causes a return to the mean. Fridays price action was a , following a long green candle. So, a down day Monday would complete an pattern. We’re still in an uptrend as long as we close above the 13 at 3137.
The Market is in a Bull Market on the 4 hour, with price above the 50 , which is above the 200 , which is above the 800 . Price would have to close below 3148 to be considered in a correction. The last couple weeks price rallied in three pushes up and formed a Big Fat M-Top peak formation on Friday. That should lead to a stiff correction down to put in a c wave of the larger b. This market is desperate for a correction in order to digest gains, which will make the market healthier, and set it up for a rally up.
The Trade Deal with China, and the Impeachment proceedings are meaningless distractions, and a side show. The fundamentals on the companies in the S&P are horrid, with everything being over-priced. But as we’ve seen, the stock market mirrors the Federal Reserves , and they’ve said they are going to do well into 2020. You want to be long this market only because of that.
