Adaptive Fibonacci Suggests A Deeper Bottom Will Setup

Our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system suggests a much deeper price move is in the works and the current price rally will likely end near resistance levels identified by the Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system.  We are posting this research post for friends and followers to help them understand the true structure of price and to allow them to prepare for what we believe will become a much deeper downside price move in the future.

Fibonacci Price Theory teaches us that price moves in waves within up and down price cycles.  The recent peak in price, near February 25, 2020, has resulted in a very deep -36% price collapse in the S&P 500 (ES) recently.  This downside move has been mostly straight down, excluding a brief retracement in early March.  The strength of this downside price move suggests a moderate upside price recovery will take place before the next downside leg sets up.

S&P 500 WEEKLY CHART OF 2008-09 CREDIT CRISIS MARKET COLLAPSE

Throughout the 2008-09 Credit Crisis market collapse, prices staged multiple recovery attempts within the downward price trend.  The first, after the initial -20.88% selloff in late 2007, resulted in a +14.83% price recovery that lasted for over 15+ weeks.  The second recovery, near the end of July 2008, resulted in a +9.56% recovery after a nearly -17% price decline.  After this brief recovery in July 2008, the price collapsed by a massive -44% from August to November 2008.

DAILY S&P 500 CHART

This Daily ES chart highlights the first two levels of resistance at 2700 & 2870 that could stall the rally and prompt a downside price move in the future. Support is currently at 2450.  We believe the 2700 level will act as a soft ceiling in the ES where price may attempt to rally, briefly, above this level, which it did yesterday, then pull back and pause as selling pressure re-enters the market.  The 2870 level may act as a hard ceiling where price may attempt to reach this level, but immediately reverse back to the downside.

Overall, we believe continued selling as a result of forward global economic expectations is the most obvious outcome where a deeper price bottom will setup sometime later this spring or early summer.

WEEKLY S&P 500 CHART

This Weekly S&P 500 chart (ES) shows a possible outcome for price going forward if another downside move starts.  A new downside price move to levels near to, or just below, the 2015~16 low price range is not unreasonable. From this level, we believe a “Flag” formation will setup creating an extended price bottom pattern down at those extreme lows.  We believe this “Flag” formation will end near August~October 2020, just before the 2020 elections and prompt the beginning of a new upside price recovery in the US and global markets.

This is a large forward-looking projection and you may be rolling your eyes, but they are very possible. In fact, last year we predicted the months and price levels in which gold and oil would start new major trends, and we did this 8 months before they took place, similar to what we are proposing here.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

The rotation in price setup by this brief upside price move will set up a new Fibonacci downside and upside price target range.  We believe it is essential for price to continue this type of rotation as the eventual bottom sets up in the US and global markets.  We believe the true price bottom will happen only after the virus event has subsided and global economies begin to start functioning like normal again.

Currently, there is simply too much of a world-wide disruption to expect that the bottom has already set up near last year’s (2019) brief price lows.  The scale and scope of the current downside price collapse do not properly reflect the total scope of this global virus event yet – it is still a reactionary move in price that has yet to properly digest the total scope of the global economic disruptions. There is a chance for stronger bounce/rally in the next few weeks/months if the virus can start to be contained, and that will continue to mimic that of the 2000 tech bubble. Believe it or not, there is a big similarity to what happened then, to what is happening now in terms of price action and market sentiment. Read article and see these charts.

In other words, we believe more selling will be seen in the global markets and more economic contraction will take place until we are safely beyond this virus event.  The longer the global economic shutdown continues, the more likely we are to see a deeper price bottom in the future and the more likely we are to see more extensive economic collateral damage across the world. No matter which way the markets move we will follow and trade the price action and profit. That is the benefit of following price vs trying to trade prediction, fundamental data etc.

In Part II of this research article, we’ll dig deeper into the underlying components that support our research.

We all have trading accounts, and while our trading accounts are important, what is even more important are our long-term investment and retirement accounts. Why? Because they are, in most cases, our largest store of wealth other than our homes, and if they are not protected during a time like this, you could lose 25-50% or more of your entire net worth. The good news is we can preserve and even grow our long term capital when things get ugly like they are now and ill show you how and one of the best trades is one your financial advisor will never let you do because they do not make money from the trade/position.

Adaptive Predictive Modeling Suggests Weakness Into 2020

Our Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) predictive modeling system is suggesting the Transportation Index will fall to levels near $10,000 over the next 2 to 3 weeks which would indicate moderate price weakness in the US stock market and the global stock market.

Our ADL predictive modeling system attempts to model future price activity by finding and mapping critical price and technical elements within the historical price action.  In a way, this is like mapping the future by attempting to learn from the past. You can get all of my trade ideas by opting into my free market trend signals newsletter.

WEEKLY TRANSPORTATION INDEX CHART #1

This first Weekly Transportation Index chart highlights the ADL predictive modeling results since the end of July 2019.  Notice the CYAN and YELLOW lines drawn on this chart showing what the ADL predictive modeling system suggested would happen over time.  This Technical ADL pattern consisted of SIX historical reference points and suggests the last three weeks’ price levels have a 63 to 84% probability rate.  This would indicate a fairly strong probability that prices will fall as the ADL predicts.

WEEKLY TRANSPORTATION INDEX CHART #2

This second Weekly Transportation Index chart highlights the ADL predictive modeling results from early September 2019.  The results are quite similar across these two charts.  Although the September results highlight a bit more potential price rotation than the earlier July ADL results.

This September ADL predictive modeling chart suggests the TRAN price will fall dramatically to levels below $10,000, then recover a bit.  After that, the price will continue to settle near the $9,700 to $10,000 level throughout the end of 2019.  This downside price move in the Transportation Index suggests the US and Global markets will experience some extended price weakness over the next 3 to 6+ weeks.

The decline in the Transportation Index suggests an overall weakness in the global economy.  If that translates into true price action in the global markets, we could see a series of lower lows set up in the US Stock Market over the next 4 to 6+ weeks.

General price weakness may become a waning anthem for the global stock market headed into the start of 2020.  Take a look at this NQ (Nasdaq) Weekly ADL chart to see what our predictive modeling system is suggesting will happen over the next 60 to 10+ weeks.

If our ADL predictive modeling system is correct, the NQ will fall to price levels near or below $7,700 over the next 2 to 4+ weeks before attempting to settle near $8000 near the end of 2019.  A couple of days ago I shared an interesting article talking about the VIX ready to rocket higher which is linked to this pending decline. As a word of warning, the price can, and often does, move beyond the ADL predictive levels on extended/volatile price swings.  So be prepared for what may happen as price rotates.

Crude Oil Should Breakdown to $51 Early This Week

Our Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) predictive modeling system is predicting that Crude Oil will break recent support levels near $55 and move very quickly down to levels near $50 to $51 before August 2nd, 2019.  The move to near the $50 price level is likely to be a 100% measured Fibonacci price extension related to the initial downside move from $61 to $55 earlier in July 2019.

After this new downside move completes, we expect Crude Oil will form a short-term price base just above $50 that may last many days or weeks.  Our earlier analysis of Oil called this move and we outline our future oil expectations.  For more information about this call, please review the following research posts.

This Daily Crude Oil chart highlights the next downside price move that we are expecting will take place over the next 4 to 7 days.  After the $50 to $51 lows are reached, Oil should base near these levels and begin a moderate upside move back to levels above $54.  This move aligns perfectly with our earlier analysis and research and strongly suggests that oil will target a sub-$40 price level in the near future.

What does this mean for investors and traders?  It means that our ADL predictive modeling system is accurately calling these moves in oil and that the sub $40 price expectations could reflect a decrease in global economic expectations over the next 6+ months.  For oil to continue to fall to levels below $40, demand would have to wane or supply would have to increase globally – or both.  Additionally, it would likely indicate that global expectation for the future demand for oil would be far lower than previously expected.  A commodity price collapse, like this, could be an early warning sign that the global economy is slowing much faster than many expect or it could be a sign that the fundamentals in the oil market are shifting as the economy is slowing.

Either way, it appears we are headed for sub $40 price levels in oil later this year.

CRUCIAL WARNING SIGNS ABOUT GOLD, MINERS, SILVER, SP500

In early June I posted a detailed video explaining in showing the bottoming formation and gold and where to spot the breakout level, I also talked about crude oil reaching it upside target after a double bottom, and I called short term top in the SP 500 index. This was one of my premarket videos for members it gives you a good taste of what you can expect each and every morning before the Opening Bell. Watch Video Here.

I then posted a detailed report talking about where the next bull and bear markets are and how to identify them. This report focused mainly on the SP 500 index and the gold miners index. My charts compared the 2008 market top and bear market along with the 2019 market prices today. See Comparison Charts Here.

On June 26th I posted that silver was likely to pause for a week or two before it took another run up on June 26. This played out perfectly as well and silver is now head up to our first key price target of $17. See Silver Price Cycle and Analysis.

More recently on July 16th, I warned that the next financial crisis (bear market) was scary close, possibly just a couple weeks away. The charts I posted will make you really start to worry. See Scary Bear Market Setup Charts.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

In short, you should be starting to get a feel of where each commodity and asset class is headed for the next 8+ months.

ADL Predicts Expected Range Of The NASDAQ Before Breakout

Our advanced predictive modeling system is suggesting a defined range for the NQ over the next 30 to 60+ days before a bigger breakout move is expected.  If you’ve been following our research, you already know we have been predicting the NQ to move in a sideways pennant formation.  Our ADL predictive modeling system is suggesting the NQ will stay within a defined price range over the next 30 to 60 days.

The upside price bias we are predicting is based on the ADL modeling systems suggestion that an upward price bias is inherent in the markets. You’ll see from the charts below that two different predictive results are driving our interpretation currently.

One result is predicting an upward price bias over the next 2 to 4 months whereas the second result is predicting a sideways price result over the same period of time.

Our conclusion is that the NQ will likely trade in a sideways pennant formation over this span of time before a breakout price move happens.

Our research continues to suggest a price peak may happen in August or September of 2019. We believe this peak aligns with our cycle research as well as aligns with our suggested pennant formation pattern. We believe the peak that forms near August or September will likely result in new all-time price highs. That breakout to new all-time highs will likely be the end of the move higher for now.   After our expected price peak sometime near September, we believe the markets will turn lower with a possible move of -10% to -15% or more.

This two-week bar chart of the NQ highlights our ADL predictive modeling results. You should be able to see the yellow dashed lines on this chart showing what we believe will be price support above 6800.  we’ve also drawn lines on the chart highlighting where the pennant formation price rotation will likely take place. Over the next few weeks, we expect the NQ price rotation to stay between 6800 and 7500.  This range presents an incredible opportunity for traders to trade this rotation.

This NQ monthly chart highlights to ADL predictive modeling results showing two separate ADL predictions. Our researchers use these results to create a combined consensus expectation for the markets. This particular NQ monthly chart suggests there is a strong upward price bias over the next 2 to 3 months. Combining this upward bias with our expectations of price support near 6800, we conclude that a sideways price rotation should be expected with a fairly volatile price range.

Please take notice of the upper yellow dashed lines of 8000. These ADL predictive levels suggest that the NQ will likely attempt a move above 8000 sometime in August or September of 2019, then move dramatically lower as price attempts to revert back to the 7500 level – or lower.

It is critically important for traders to understand the future price expectations of the NQ and the US stock market. Having knowledge of future price activity, like our ADL predictive modeling can produce, allows traders to plan for and execute strategic trading strategies.

Once the peak in August or September is reached, skilled traders should begin to prepare for a bigger downside price move which may last many months. Initially, our expectation is a move back to 7500. Our longer-term research and cycle analysis suggest prices may move much lower – possibly towards 6000 or lower.
