Crude Oil Pummeled, Where Is It Going Next?

On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, the price of Crude Oil fell over -4.5% on continued expectations of global economic weakness and supply gluts.  We found this interview rather interesting because it attempts to suggest a narrative that ignores Iranian issues while pushing the supply side fundamental for the current price decline (Source: CNBC).

Back on May 21, 2019, we shared a post that is still very relevant today.  The same price pattern is still in place and the same type of price action is working through the completion of an extended Pennant/Flag formation. We suggest all our follower read this May 21 post to catch up to current market levels.

May 21, 2019, Technical Analysis Post:
GLOBAL ECONOMIC TENSIONS TRANSLATE INTO OIL VOLATILITY

Our researchers believe the technical reason why Crude Oil will continue lower is that price rotation has continued to support a downside price trend (Bearish) and that recent price resistance near the upper price channel has been rejected.  This is a near perfect example of how the Fibonacci price theory works in real markets.  The price must always attempt to establish “new price highs” or “new price lows” AT ALL TIMES.

After the deep price bottom in December 2018 near $42.50, oil price began an upside price move reaching just above our $66 target in late April 2019.  Since then, another downside price move, which we called in our May 21 article, has driven oil prices to the $50.60 level. The current upside price move has recently retested the $60 resistance level and has pulled back to where we are today around $56 per barrel.

The price rejection and subsequent collapse in price on July 2 represents a clear rotation from the $60 price level.  This failure to achieve a “higher high” price level ($60 is lower than the previous peak near $66) is a very clear indication that price MUST move lower in an attempt to establish a new “lower low” – near or below $50.60.  This is how the Fibonacci price theory works.

We believe the last level of support for Oil is currently near $54.50. If this level is breached, we should see a very clear and quick price move lower targeting the $50.60 to $52.50 level where historical support resides.  If that level fails, then a move to deeper historical support, near $42 if very likely.

Everything hinges on what Oil will do near the $54.50 level as the price continues to push lower from the recent peak near $60.  Technical traders should be prepared for a bit of volatility over the next few days, but we believe the $54.50 level will be breached and that oil prices will continue to fall back towards the previous low price level near $50.60.  If price fails to find support there, it really has only one target left to reach – that is the $42 level.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

In a previous article, we’ve shown you when the bottom was in for oil and stocks using our simple trade setup technique we use to identify entry and exit points for SP500 and Crude Oil  – the 100% Fibonacci Extension Move. Now a month later we are providing more insight about oils potential drop to $42 if support is broken.

If the price drops below $52 would also create selling pressure as the price will have fallen below the 200-period historical moving average level.  This technical condition would suggest price weakness to the masses and could result in additional selling pressure from traders exiting the oil market and potentially even short selling pressure.

Technical traders should have all eyes focused on the $54.50 price level right now.  That is the key price level for any future move in Crude Oil as it is oversold currently and near support. Either way, up or down, Crude Oil continues to be an incredible opportunity for skilled technical traders.

I can tell you that huge moves are about to start unfolding not only in crude oil, but real estate, metals, stocks, and currencies. Some of these super cycles are even going to last years.

Transportation Index Warns Of Trouble Ahead?

Any weakness in the Transportation Index near current levels would indicate investors and traders believe the global economy may continue to contract going forward and may be an ominous sign for the global stock markets.

The Transportation Index is a measure of the current expectations related to shipping, trucking, trains and all measure of forward expectations for goods, products and raw materials to be moved across nations, seas, states, and locations.  When the economy is gaining strength, we typically expect to see the Transportation Index moving higher.  When the economy is weakening, we typically expect to see the Transportation Index moving lower.

Since the peak in September 2018, the Transportation Index has moved much lower to establish a base near $8625 in December 2018.  After that base formed, a series of price rotations pushed the Transportation Index up to $11,148, where it peaked, then began to trail a bit lower since May 2019. Our concern is that the Support/Resistance level, highlighted by the GREEN rectangle on this Weekly chart, represents a critical historical price that must be breached before any renewed strength in the global markets will be seen.

After the G20 meeting, last weekend, and the rally in the US stock market on Monday, we were a bit surprised that the Transportation Index failed to move dramatically higher following the global markets.  This leads us to believe investors were taking advantage of a pricing issue related to the G20 and US/China trade war news that was not rooted in strength seen in the global economy.  In other words, buy the rumor, sell the news.  It would appear the rumor hit the markets Sunday in Tokyo and the news hit the US markets on Monday.

We talked about the G20 meeting results and how G20 will move gold and the US stock indexes.

Skilled technical traders already know we must be cautious near these current all-time highs.  Volatility can increase dramatically on news or other earnings data which may drive prices higher or lower over the next few weeks.  As we start July (Q3) 2019, we should be preparing for earnings data to be released over the next 30+ days as well as continued news related to global trade issues.  Additionally, the items which will be sold for Christmas and the holidays are already being shipped across the globe and being distributed to warehouses over the next few months prior to the start of the holiday season.

Historically, July through September are somewhat weak for the Transportation Index.  Overall, the Transportation Index loses approximately 500 to 600 points over this 90-day span with a range (potentially) of over $3000 points in volatility.  Bullish trending strength returns in October and November where the Transportation Index typically rallies approximately $5000 pts with a volatility range of about $7000 points.  These historical trends suggest we could see quite a bit of volatility over the next 90 days with a decent chance at seeing a downward price move targeting recent December 2018 lows.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

In previous articles, we’ve suggested a simple trade setup technique we use to identify entry and exit points – the 100% Fibonacci Extension Move.  If this move holds true for the Transportation Index, then a move to levels near $8250 is about to unfold based on the move from Sept 2019 to Dec 2019.  It would make sense that this move would likely happen between now and September 2019 – followed by a solid rally into the end of 2019 as our historical data suggests.

Now is the time to stay on top of these moves and to target the opportunity these bigger price rotations provide for technical traders.  Simply put, we have just described a downside price move of about $2000 points in the Transportation Index followed by an upside price move of over $4000 to $5000 points.  You don’t want to miss this one, folks.

I can tell you that huge moves are about to start unfolding not only in real estate, but metals, stocks, and currencies. Some of these super cycles are going to last years.

G20 News Drive Big Moves In The Markets

This past weekend was full of exciting news and information.  Combine this with the strong US economic activity, the potential for some type of reprieve in the US/China trade issues and the historic meeting in North Korea between President Trump and Kim Jun Un, and the markets were set up for a big move at the open of trading in Tokyo.

The other big news originated from the Bank of International Settlements (BIS).  This Swiss-based central banking committee for “central banks” released an annual report on the progress of global central banks and the global economy last weekend.  They urged central banks not to chase easy money policies any longer and to focus on core policy changes, practical economic practices, and real leadership to help drive future growth.  They urged nations that easy money policies may help to show some types of immediate economic improvements – but that the risks of continuing such policies and lack of true economic reforms do nothing but pack risk into the back end of these efforts.

Recently we have been talking about the unit and very different opportunities in other assets like real estate and precious metals. Each metal is unique for market timing has its own personality. Our gold predictions are an eye-opener, why silver is awesome, and our most recent analysis on platinum is timely.

Our opinion is the US stock market is poised for a big move based on this news and continued economic activity.  If the US is able to settle trade issues in a manner that supports a strong future economic output and restore some balance to foreign trade, as well as continue to produce strong economic activity and output levels throughout the last 6+ months of this year, we could see a very strong price rally setting up into the end of 2019.  This could prompt a big move to the upside IF all things line up properly as we have suggested.

If things take an ugly turn over the next 2 to 4+ months, then we believe current support levels will likely act as a floor in the US stock market as the global economies struggle to find their “launch button” to jump-start their economies.  As the news stated, the economic factors of the globe are in a transitional state at the moment.  The US is the leading global economic engine and many other foreign economies must transition away from easy money policies and make hard choices to drive future growth.  Volatility will be KING over the next few months/years and the US Dollar will likely continue to strengthen as this transition plays out.

This ES chart highlights the resistance levels just below $3000 that we are watching as a critical ceiling in the ES.  As we have suggested, the news last weekend is driving upward price activity into this resistance area.  Traders should be cautiously bullish right now and should be keenly aware of risks that could prompt a breakdown in price.  Current support is near $2700.

Technology could be a huge winner if the US/China restore proper trade relations and establish a stronger future economic tie going forward.  In fact, the relief of a US/China trade deal could easily spill over into the DOW and Mid-Cap stocks as general trade and infrastructure deals will likely ramp-up quickly.  Our researchers believe the technology sector is the “canary in the coal mine” for the future of price related to trade and global economic activities.  We believe the technology sector is unfairly weighted in either direction based on the uncertainty of the global economy right now.

Resistance near $8000 is key.  Support near $6800 is also very important.  This leaves a $1400 range for price rotation within critical levels.  Our Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting even bigger price volatility ranges totaling over $3000 between target levels.  This suggests that volatility is still increasing and that traders should understand the risks of this volatility.  Currently, we are cautiously bullish as the NQ attempt to breach into new all-time high territory again.

Gold paused in the rally early in trading today, breaking back below $1400.  We have confidence in out research that Gold will continue to react to the Fear & Greed that is rampant throughout the globe at the moment and begin another upside move over the next 10+ days.  This move below $1400 is an excellent opportunity for traders to identify new Long entry positions for the future upside move.

Remember, the transition that is required over the next 2+ years will require many difficult decisions and a means of transitioning away from easy money policies towards more practical economic policies.  This will not be an easy task for many.  The fear/greed cycle will show up in precious metals early and quickly.  The next upside move should be towards levels above $1550 to $1650.

As we’ve been saying for many months, this is the time to be a skilled trader.  These volatility spikes, huge moves in the markets and incredible trade setups are fantastic opportunities for traders.  Join us in picking apart these moves, setups, and opportunities.

Part II – Are Real Estate ETF’s The Next Big Trade?

In part I of this research post, we highlighted how the shifting landscape of the US real estate market may be setting up an incredible trading opportunity for technical traders.  It is our belief that the continued capital shift which has been driving foreign investment into US assets, real estate, and other investments may be shifting away from US real estate as tell-tale signs of stress are starting to show.  Foreclosures and price drops are one of the first signs that stress exists in the markets and we believe the real estate segment could be setting up for an incredible trade opportunity.

SRS, the Proshares Ultrashort Real Estate EFT has recently completed a unique “washout low” price bottom that we believe may become an incredible trading opportunity for technical traders.  If the US Fed pushes the market into a panic mode, sellers will become even more desperate to offload their homes and buyers will become even more discerning in terms of selecting what and when to buy.

Our opinion is that the recent “washout low” price bottom in SRS is very likely to be a unique “scouting party” low/bottom that may set up a very big move to the upside over the next 4 to 12+ months.  If our research is correct, the continued forward navigation for the US Fed, global central banks and the average consumers buying and selling homes is about to become very volatile.

If SRS moves above the $25.50 level, our first upside Fibonacci price target and clears the $24.25 previous peak set in April 2019, it would be a very clear indication that a risk trade in Real Estate is back in play.  Ideally, price holding above the $21.65 level would provide a very clear level of support negating any future price weakness below $21.50.

This weekly SRS chart highlights what we believe to be the optimal BUY ZONE and the upside price targets near $28 to $29.  Since the bottom in 2009-10, after the credit market crisis, we have not seen any substantial risk in the Real Estate market for over 8+ years.  Now, though, it is our opinion that this risk trade is very real and that technical trader should be aware of this potential move and what it means to protect assets and wealth.

If our research proves to be accurate and any future move by the US Fed will prompt a “rush to the exits” by home sellers, then there is really only one course of action left for us to consider.  Either the Fed will reduce rates, buying some at-risk sellers a bit of time before a rush to sell overwhelms the markets and prices begin a fast decline in an attempt to secure quick buyers; or the Fed will leave rates at current levels where at-risk sellers will continue to attempt to offload their homes to any willing buyers before declining prices and panicked sellers start the “race to the bottom” in terms of pricing.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Real Estate has already run through the price advance cycle and the price maturity cycle.  There is really only one cycle left to unfold at this point – the “price revaluation cycle”.  This is where the opportunity lies with our suggested SRS trade setup.

We believe this bottom in SRS will result in a few more weeks of trading near price support (above $20 and below $22.50) where traders will be able to acquire their positions.  The bigger move will happen as risk becomes more evident – very similar to what has recently happened in Gold. Once that risk is visible to traders/investors, the upside potentials ($28+ to $42+) won’t seem so illogical any longer.

Are Real Estate ETF’s The Next Big Trade?

A subscriber recently mentioned getting into a real estate ETF so we started going over the data which may suggest the Real Estate sector could become the next big trade over the next 12+ months.  The news that the US Fed may decrease rates in an attempt to front-run global economic weakness and real estate market weakness may result in a waterfall event in local and regional real estate markets.  This type of event could become a fantastic trading opportunity for technical traders.

Recently we have been talking about the unit and very different opportunities in other physical assets like precious metals. Each metal is unique for market timing has its own personality. Our gold predictions are an eye-opener, why silver is awesome, and our most recent analysis on platinum is timely.

Overall, our research has been focused on one of the hottest markets anywhere in the US, California.  Los Angeles, Ventura County, Orange County, San Diego, and San Francisco make up the entire massive Southern California real estate market.  The California real estate market is a fairly strong indicator for weaker market segments because the number of transactions taking place across the 400+ miles spanning San Francisco to San Diego represent multiple trillions of dollars, vast segments of consumers and types of housing as well as an incredibly diverse economic landscape ranging from coastal regions, farming regions, cities, technology hubs, agriculture and dozens of others (source).

Our concern is that a rate decrease by the US Fed may be interpreted as a “move to attempt to abate fear” instead of a “move to support the markets”.  If this decrease in rates does happen and at-risk homeowners fear the Fed is trying to push buttons to adjust the consumer environment toward a “buying bias” and sellers become scared, then the race to sell faster (decreasing prices to attract buyers) may become the norm.  In other words, in an effort to support the markets, the Fed could take actions that remove the floor from the markets as sellers attempt to get the best price possible before buyers become aware of the “race to the bottom” in terms of pricing.

At-risk homeowners are under increasing pressures as pricing, income and other expenses seem to have wreaked havoc with what was a traditionally strong real estate market just three years ago.  It appears the Fed has raised rates just enough to start to show the cracks in the dam in Orange County and LA County, California.  The increasing number of blue dots, as well as the continue “price drops” in these areas, are a very clear sign that the “hot market” is now just “mildly warm and cooling fast”.  Prices are past the peak and are already starting to decline fairly rapidly.

Additionally, delinquency levels for commercial and industrial loans are starting to rise dramatically – much like what happened in 2007 – just months before the credit market crash in 2008.  Commercial and Industrial loan delinquencies rose sharply from 1.14 in Q2 2007 to 1.45 in Q1 2008 – eventually peaking at 447 in Q3 2009.  Currently, Delinquency levels are at 1.17 – up from 0.93 for Q4 2018.  If this trend continues past September, we could be looking at a very different real estate economic picture by the end of 2019 or early 2020 (Source).

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Our interpretation of the US housing market is that buyers are becoming more opportunistic as they are watching the markets and watching how sellers are dropping prices in an attempt to attract a sale.  Buyers have not seen this type of activity since early 2007-08 or so when sellers were getting desperate to get out of their homes near the top of the market.  At the same time, watching how sellers attempt to push their home into the hands of buyers creates a shifting dynamic in the Real Estate market.  All the sudden it went from a seller’s market and is now shifting into a buyers market.

The rates of delinquencies, consumer confidence, and levels of disposable income all factor into the market’s reactions to price and sales activity.  When buyers believe it is opportunistic to buy, they will move mountains to attempt to acquire a home or an asset.  When buyers believe it is not opportunistic to buy an asset, they will likely decide to wait for a more opportunistic time to make their purchase.

In part II of this article, we will share our research that highlights the incredible trade setup related to the Real Estate market and how technical traders can position their portfolios for this move.

Platinum Setting Up For A Big Price Anomaly

Our clients and followers have been following our incredible research and market calls regarding Gold and Silver with intense focus.  We issued a research post in October 2018 that suggested Gold would rocket higher from a base level below $1300 to an initial target near $1450 almost 9 months ago.

As of this week, Gold has reached a high of $1442.90 only $7.10 away from our predicted target level.  This has been an absolutely incredible move in Gold and we could not be more pleased with the outcome for our clients, followers, and anyone paying attention to our research posts.

Additionally, many of our clients have been asking us to share our predictive modeling research for Platinum, which has been basing near recent lows recently.  We decided to share our research with everyone regarding the information our proprietary predictive modeling tools are suggesting.

You can see from my precious metals comparison article which metal has the most upside potential looking going forward.

Also, be sure you read my exclusive Platinum prediction which is playing out exactly as expected thus far.

Todays Updated Platinum Analysis:
This first Platinum chart highlights our Fibonacci price modeling tool and provides some critical information we need to understand about Platinum right now.  The Volatility Zone, created by the range between the Bullish and Bearish Fibonacci Trigger Levels, is very large.  This is a very clear indication that implied volatility in Platinum is currently at levels near 26% of the current price.  To put that into perspective, an impulse move in Platinum could result in a $125 to $250 price breakout or breakdown, depending on price structure, before implied volatility may reduce back to normal levels.  Normal price volatility in Platinum is typically somewhere between 4.6% to 11.5%.

The next aspect of our research we want you to focus on is the rotation of the price peaks and troughs, highlighted by MAGENTA arcs we’ve drawn on this chart.  The rotation of price over the past 11+ months has been a very clear “higher price trend channel” where higher highs and higher lows have been forming.

This presents a very clear price picture for the current price levels, near the recent price lows ($765), are very likely to attempt a rally back towards levels that will attempt to set up another “new price high” – $925 or higher.  Although, we have to be very cautious of the extended volatility levels and the potential for a price breakdown into the BREAKDOWN ZONE (highlighted on the chart below).  Should price fail to attempt to move higher, then a very clear price breakdown will take, breaking the current trend channel and invalidating our bullish price predictions.

Currently, our researchers believe there is a very strong likelihood of an upside price move breaching the $818 level (highlighted by the WHITE LINE near the BLUE Fibonacci projection level) to begin the upside price move.  Once this level is breached, we would have technical confirmation that a key Fibonacci level has been tested, breached and a new upside price trend is beginning to form.  This would partially validate our upside price expectations and allow us to target a long objective near $865.

Obviously, technical traders would attempt to look for strategic entries below $805, if they present themselves.  The concept is to take advantage of the lowest risk trade entries the markets provide.  At the same time, there is plenty of room in the middle of this trade for decent profits as well.

This next chart shows our Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) predictive modeling system that maps out price bars, technical data, and comparative price data into a DNA chain for future reference.  In a way, this tool attempts to “infer knowledge” by digging deeper into the price and technical data than we can attempt to do visually – then project the expected price levels well into the future.

This ADL chart is presenting two very clear outcomes.  One with much higher prices and another with lower/stagnant pricing levels that tend to weaken over time.  This result is the output of two different, side-by-side, price bars and it shows how the ADL can highlight increased volatility and what we call a “price anomaly” pattern that is setting up.

Obviously, the current price is near these lower ADL predicted levels, thus we could assume the lower predicted levels may be more accurate.  Yet, both of the ADL bars predicted that price would move lower (below $840) throughout this time-span.  Where the ADL predictions diverge is THIS WEEK and into the future.  The analysis from April 29 is suggesting that the price of Platinum should be trading near $845 right now and will breakout to much higher levels (above $930) within the next 1 to 3+ weeks.  The analysis from May 6 is suggesting that the price of Platinum will languish near $760 to $800 for the next 5+ weeks while continuing to weaken.

This is the setup of a “Price Anomaly”.  Where price is actually “out of alignment” with one key element of the ADL predictive modeling system and setting up an incredible opportunity for skilled traders. We’ve learned that either one of two things will happen…  Either price WILL revert to much higher levels as suggested by the April 29 ADL prediction OR, the price will stall near recent lows as suggested by the May 6 ADL prediction.

As a skilled trader, our job is to understand where the opportunity lies within this ADL prediction and attempt to manage the risks.

As we stated earlier in this research post, the combination of the Fibonacci and ADL predictive modeling systems are suggesting a very clear action for traders – attempt to accumulate below $800 with the expectation that price may continue to consolidate near these levels for 3 to 10+ more days.  Eventually, as our ADL predictive modeling system is suggesting, a breakout upside price move is likely to take place where the price will attempt to move dramatically higher – targeting $850 first, then possibly $935 or higher.  This is the “price anomaly reversion” trade that creates the opportunity for skilled traders.

The ADL predictive modeling system is great at suggesting where the price will attempt to target in the near future.  When it aligns with the current price, then we have some validation that price is acting normally.  When price moves against the suggestions of the ADL predictive modeling system, then we have a “price anomaly setup” and we typically wait for confirmation of the “trigger” to confirm this reversion will actually take place.  Our trigger is the WHITE LINE on the Fibonacci chart, above.  Once price closes above $818 to $820 on a fairly strong move, then we would have technical confirmation that price is attempting to establish “new price highs” and this should provide enough momentum to push the price anomaly reversion trade into a real opportunity for success.

Next Bull and Bear Markets are Now Set Up

Sharing market analysis and my opinions every day is far from easy and sometimes I feel like a song on repeat. My focus and goal has always been to try to alert fellow traders and investors of what is unfolding now in the financial markets around the globe because it appears we are about to experience another financial life-changing event much like the 2000 stock market top, and the late 2007 bull market top which will play out over the next 24+ months

If you lost money during the last bear market then you need a new game plan to take advantage of falling prices and the solution is not just to by gold, silver, and miners. In fact, you could lose a lot buying and holding them over the next year if you are not careful. We all know what the precious metals sector did during the last equities bear market (they crashed 64% with the stock market before starting to rally).

From a technical analysis standpoint, we are still a long ways away from a confirmed bear market. We do need a see a rather larger drop to break the December low we saw in the SP500 index. But, each month more warning signs pop up to confirm we would be in a full-blown bear market b the end of 2019.

Miners Are Outperforming US Equities – Top Is Near!

Last month I talked about how I have been waiting for gold miners to start outperforming the US stocks market. Once miners start outperforming in a big way (just like we saw in 2007), we know the stock market is topping out and something really bad is about to happen.

In the last couple of weeks, the gold miners index is up over 16% while the SP500 is up only 6%, this feels like the start-of-the-end if you know what I mean.

It’s a known fact that stock market prices lead earnings, news, and the economy. Stock prices start to flatten, chop sideways, and sell off typically 3-6 months or more before negative data starts to become daily headline news.

I have been predicting a top for form since early 2018 with the book I co-authored called “The Crash of 2019 and 2020 – How You Can Profit” only available to subscribers of the Wealth Building Newsletter.

I can tell you that huge moves are about to start unfolding not only in metals, or stocks but globally and some of these super cycles are going to last years.

Concluding Thoughts:

In short, the financial markets including commodities move in a wave like pattern and you want to own them and be to long when they are rising, and in cash or sell short (inverse ETF) when they are falling.

Everyone is excited about the gold, silver, and miners market here and now, but if everyone already owns them, and is buying more, that’s the signature herd/masses set up that we could see that market pullback hard here at any time.

The reality is, we just sold our gold and miners position because we expect a pullback/correction. Just like we played that last move in metals from the Sept bottom we called and exited near the top in mid-March. I got lots of flack for selling because everyone was SCREAMING BULL MARKET FOR METALS/MINERS (just like now) but what followed, yup a multi money correction that allowed us to take the next wave in this market which we just closed the positions.

The reality is, we never know which rally will be the TRUE breakout rally, and which selloff ill be the one that starts a new down trend, but we must stick with strict trading rules for long term consistent gains. We can reenter a position at any time with a click of a button and I don’t get worked up if I don’t get in at the exact bottom or out at the exact top because that is just called luck. The key is to get the middle low-risk gains, time and time again.

Small Caps May Lead A Market Rally

We believe a unique Pennant/Flag formation is setting up in the US stock markets. We believe the Small Cap sector may provide a better technical reference to the price breakout we are expecting in late August or early September than the mid or large-cap sectors.  The charts tell a very interesting story when comparing the different sectors to the SPY.

As most of you are well aware, the very deep selloff between October and December 2018 prompted a low price pivot point that most technical analysts are using as a reference to support. What we find interesting is that these Small Caps have really failed to mount any type of price recovery.  We believe this is because of the continued capital shift where foreign investors and institutional investors are piling into mid-cap and large-cap equities chasing dividends and safety.  The small-cap index chart may provide the best technical reference for the pennant formation and eventual breakout move.

This weekly chart of TNA highlights exactly what we are referencing in comparison to the mid-cap and large-cap charts. Pay very close attention to the support level near $53.50.  Also, notice that define panic formation setting up after the December 2018 bottom. We believe the price rotation in the small-cap index is clearer and more identifiable than the rotation in the mid-And large-cap indexes.  We also believe the small-cap index will show early warning signs of price weakness or strength after the apex of this move.

The mid-cap and large-cap weekly charts paint a very different picture than the small-cap chart. We can see the upward price slow after the bottom in December 2018 was much more aggressive. We can also see an upward sloping Pennant formation setting up between the lower, blue, price channel and the magenta upward sloping price channel from the recent lows.  Please pay close attention to the upper and lower support zones we drawn on this chart. Any future break down in price will likely find support near the upper support zone and possibly pause near this level before attempting a breakdown further if needed.

This last SPY weekly chart highlights the similarities between the made In the large-cap indexes. The way price reacts to these channels as well as creates these Pennant formations in unison is rather interesting. Compared to the small chart, the TNA, it is clear that the main and large-cap prices are moving somewhat in tandem.

At this point in the process, we are waiting for wave 3 to end and wave 4 to begin of the pennant formation.  As price continues to consolidate within the pennant range, we should take advantage of opportunities that exist within this rotation and prepare for a brief breakout to new all-time highs. After new all-time highs are reached, we believe an immediate downside price rotation will begin sometime in September 2019 and last possibly into October or November 2019 – possibly longer.

Pay attention to vertical line number 10 on this chart. This price cycle reference occurs on September 8, 2019. It also occurs right after the apex of the pennant formation between the red and magenta lines. Our researchers believe a washout high price rotation, targeting new price highs, will be the likely resulting breakout move.  After the washout high exhausts, we believe an immediate downside move will likely begin and push prices back below the 282 to 270 level while attempting to find support.  Ultimately this downside move may attempt to retest the 240 level or lower. Time will tell.

Our suggestion is to pay attention to the small-cap index in relation to the mid-cap and the large-cap symbols. We believe the small-cap sector will provide greater detail for technical analysts and researchers. Overall, every one of these charts paints a fairly clear picture. We believe our research is accurate and that the market will do exactly as we are suggesting. The only thing that we are unsure of, at this point, is where the new all-time high price level will peak.

Our ADL predictive modeling system is providing some guidance in regards to this peak level.  We will continue to provide further guidance and research as these price swings continue. It would be wise to prepare to trade a tightening price channel as this pennant formation continues – then be prepared for some very big price swings in late August and all through September.
