Stock Market Has Entered a 25-35year Crisis Cycle Re-evaluation Event

We can only imagine what many of you are thinking and feeling right now.  Shock?  Concern?  Despair?  Some of you have already emailed us asking about the US and Global markets to find out what our predictive modeling systems are suggesting.  Today, we’re going to show you what the longer-term Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system is suggesting for the S&P and NASDAQ.

First, we want to ask you to slow down, take a few seconds to realize we will recover from this virus event and the smart thing to do is protect your family, protect your assets, and prepare for the future.  Market crashes happen only 2-3 times in a lifetime and they, not the end of the world or financial system.

This event is different than the 2000 or 2008 market crash events.  Each of those past events was somewhat localized events that disrupted a segment or portion of the global economy.  Yes, the 2008 event was bigger than the 2000 event, but the localization of the event still presented a similarity that provided a moderately quick recovery process.

Before we continue, be sure to opt-in to our free market trend signals 
before closing this page, so you don’t miss our next special report!

Next, we want you to attempt to understand this virus event is a bit different than the most recent crash events.  A virus pandemic of this nature will likely result in a much broader economic contraction and various collateral damage processes as it transitions across the globe.  Currently, our research team is attempting to watch for the early signs of these collateral damage processes to determine if a broader global market collapse is going to take place.  At this time, we must all try to prepare for what is unknown and could happen in the future.

The longer-term generational cycle (the roughly 85-year Strauss-Howe Theory suggests societies navigate a long term cycle that repeats itself, roughly, every 85 years).  This societal evolutionary theory centers around the concept that people repeat many of the same failures learned by previous generations – roughly every 85 years.  What was learned in the 1920s~1940s will have been forgotten in the 1990s~2020 and many of the same mistakes will be made.

One of our researchers, Brad Matheny, authored a book in March 2019 that analyzed these super-cycles and accurately predicted this market crash could happen as early as August or September 2019.  Within this book, Mr. Matheny made great efforts to illustrate how important it is for everyone to become aware of these bigger market cycles and to prepare for what was likely to come near the end of 2019 and into early 2020.  You can get your own copy of this book here.

Additionally, smaller market cycles take place within the bigger super-cycles. This example of the 8.6-year business cycle highlights the repetitive nature of these broader market cycles.  Think about how 10 of these smaller business cycles equal the much larger 85-year generational cycle.  Now, think about how each stage of the roughly 20~21 year generational cycle has played out over the last 85 years.

This screen capture highlights the phases and structures of the broader Strauss-Howe generational theory.  Pay very close attention to how structured the process is and what to expect in the future.  Also, notice that we entered a CRISIS phase in 2005.

Past cycles have lasted more than the average 20~21 years.  Longer cycle lengths are not uncommon within the broader 85-year super-cycle when larger societal events take place.  Thus, this current CRISIS phase could last 25 to 35 years before a new HIGH phase sets up.

The reason we are bringing all of this together within this article is because we want to clearly stress forward and future expectations as well as to make our longer-term market concerns very clear to all of you.  If, as the generational cycles suggest, we have entered a CRISIS phase and are moving toward a HIGH phase, then we are in the midst of a phase that can be very destructive to institutions and society as a whole.

“According to the authors, the Fourth Turning is a Crisis. This is an era of destruction, often involving war or revolution, in which institutional life is destroyed and rebuilt in response to a perceived threat to the nation’s survival. After the crisis, civic authority revives, cultural expression redirects towards community purpose, and people begin to locate themselves as members of a larger group.”

These super-cycles and the broader “collateral damage” issue is what leads our researchers to believe the US and Global markets may continue to target much deeper price support levels before finding a bottom.  Even though the US and global central banks are doing everything possible to avoid a contagion economic collapse, we believe many people have “forgotten” about these broader market cycles and may be shocked to learn the COVID-19 virus event is happening in the midst of an 85-year generational Super-Cycle that predicts a true price bottom (new HIGH phase) may not set up until 2030~2035.

Let’s take a look at where our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system is suggesting the markets may bottom.

DAILY S&P 500 FUTURES CHART

We’ll start by exploring this Daily ES chart which highlights two key Fibonacci downside price targets: 1683 and 1225.  Look for the GREY and RED lines near the bottom of this chart and look for the BLUE/RED and GREY SQUARES near the right edge of this chart.  These SQUARES are the DAILY Fibonacci downside price targets as calculated by our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system.

Also, pay attention to the CYAN price channel that we’ve drawn on this chart highlighting the current downside price channel that has setup.  It is our opinion that price will likely attempt to stay within this price channel as it moves deeper to target these support levels – eventually attempting to set up a bottom near either of these deeper Fibonacci support levels.

WEEKLY S&P 500 FUTURES CHART

This Weekly ES chart highlights the Weekly Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system’s results – which are almost exactly the same as the Daily targets.  This is very important if you understand that the Fibonacci price structure is supposed to be structured in a universal means throughout all price activity.  Thus, if the Daily and Monthly Fibonacci Modeling system is targeting the exact same levels – then this carries much greater importance to us.

The same downside targets in the ES are 1683 and 1225.  These represent a continued downside price move of -32.75% or -50.25% from current levels.  The YELLOW lines we’ve drawn on the chart represent what we believe the bottom may look like if the first level of support, 1683, acts at a bottom.  We do believe a bottom will set up in a FLAG formation that may take many months to complete before any real rally begins.

We issued an important investment trade alert this week that you should know about if you have not read this alert so be sure to do so now!

WEEKLY NASDAQ FUTURES CHART

This Weekly NQ chart points to an even deeper price bottom.  The downside Fibonacci targets are 3900 and 1865 (-48.59% and -75.15% below current price levels).  These deeper price targets suggest the NASDAQ market may become unusually volatile over the next 12 to 24+ months.  We believe this could become an unforeseen risk for many global investors that believe technology will recover faster than many other market sectors.  If our research is correct, the NASDAQ could collapse to far deeper levels than the S&P or the Dow Industrials.

How could the NASDAQ collapse like this?  Remember the “collateral damage” aspect and think about what it would take for these technology companies to loose their financial support?  Companies like Twitter, Uber and dozens of others operate with negative annual cash-flow – they depend on spending money they can’t earn to stay in business.  If this cash reserve vanishes – what happens?

The process of getting to these lows can come in many forms – yet the targets are still there for us to understand and prepare for.

On the weekend I wrote an interesting post sharing a trading experience I had during the 2000 bull market and how there are some similarities in price patterns and psychologically with traders as we have right now. It’s worth a read.

Watch for the global markets to continue to target recent lows.  On the NQ chart, above, we’ve drawn some CYAN lines near recent lows to illustrate these levels.  If the global markets do collapse to the Fibonacci levels we are predicting, then a much bigger contagion event is taking place along with the generational cycles and an unraveling of many institutional processes and functions.  Remember, we may continue within the CRISIS phase of the Super-Cycle for another 3 to 10+ years.  The COVID-19 virus event may be just the trigger of this collapse – but the writing has been on the wall for many decades.

Be very cautious buying into these dips at the moment.  We have been warning about this event for a while. Just last week we published a short guide and our basic trading and investing strategy on how to profit from bear market cycles – explained. Our researchers predicted August/September 2019 as the “critical date” and urged “move to cash” at that time to protect your assets from this event – few listened to us while the markets continued to push higher.

Luckily, on February 23rd we closed out all of our remaining positions for our active ETF trading account with our subscribers. Our trading accounts are sitting at a new high watermark and we avoided the market crash and took advantage of the 20% rally in bonds.

Maybe more people will listen to us after reading this article and prepare for what may come in the near future?  Maybe some of you will grasp the idea that these Super-Cycles are real and learn this may become the greatest opportunity of your life with our help.

As a technical analyst and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for short-term swing traders.

Oil Begins To Move Lower – Will Our Predictions Come True?

Recently, we posted a multi-part research post suggesting a collapse in Crude Oil could be setting up and how we believe this decline in energy prices may lead to a broader market collapse in the near future.  Crude oil fell more than 3% on November 19 in what appears to be a major price reversal.  On November 20, inventory levels and other key economic data will be presented – could the price of oil collapse even further over the next 60+ days?

Here is a link to our most recent multi-part article about Crude Oil from November 13 (just a week ago): https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/what-happens-to-the-global-economy-if-oil-collapses-below-40-part-i/

OUR ORIGINAL RESEARCH CHART FROM JULY 2019

Our original research post, from July 2019, included this chart showing our Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) price modeling system and where it believed the price of oil would go in the future.  This chart highlights expected price ranges and directions all the way into April 2020 with a low price level near $25 somewhere between February and April 2020.  Is Oil really going to reach a low price near $25 ppb in the near future?

On July 10, 2019, we authored a research article using our ADL predictive modeling for Oil.  At that time, we predicted Oil would fall in August, recover in September and October, then collapse to near $42 (or lower) in November and December.  You can read our followup to this article here.

In order for these predictions to continue to hold true, Crude Oil will have to fall below $47 ppb over the next 30+ days and then consolidate through December and January into a fairly tight price range between $42 and $49.  If this happens as we predicted back in July, then there would be a much higher probability that the February, March and April price targets are valid going forward.

On November 19, Crude oil reversed quite extensively to the downside after weeks of upward price pressure.  We believe this downside price rotation may be setting up a bigger, deeper price move that is aligned with our ADL predictive modeling systems results from July 2019 – eventually targeting the sub $50 price level near the end of November or early December. You can get all of my trade ideas by opting into my free market trend signals newsletter.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

This potential move in Crude Oil is setting up a potentially great trade for active traders if you know how to profit from falling prices and I even talked about how to trade this move in my member’s only trading newsletter service. Remember, if our ADL research is correct, December and January will see very mild price action in Oil.  The bigger breakdown move happens in late January or early February.

On Monday another commodity gave us another trade and it popped 3.4% in our favor within the first trading session. Big moves in stocks, metals, and energy are ready for big price swings here, get ready!

As a trader, you need to be aware of the greater implications for the global markets if Crude Oil falls below $45 ppb (eventually, possibly falling below $30 ppb).  A large portion of the global market depends on oil prices being relatively stable above $50 ppb.  A decrease in oil prices will place extreme pressures on certain nations to maintain oil production and to generate essential revenues.  Depending on how this plays out in the future, falling oil prices could translate into far greater risks for the global stock markets and global economics.

Where is the top for natural gas

We wrote a very telling research article on October 24th, 2019.  We never published it because we had other articles scheduled to be published over the next few weeks in the queue and because our subscribers get our trade alerts before the general public. At this point, we are sharing that past article as well as some current research for Natural Gas that should be very interesting to you.

Pay very close attention to the original October 24th article, below, and our prediction that the $2.75 to $2.85 level would be a likely target for the upside price rally from the basing level below $2.30.  Currently, Natural Gas is trading at $2.87 – reaching our initial target level.

If our research is correct, strong demand and limited supply globally may push Natural Gas well above the $3.20 to $3.40 level after a very brief pause happens near $3.00.  In fact, Natural Gas may be getting ready to rally past 2018 highs ($4.93) if the situation presents itself for such an incredible price rally.  What would it take for a rally like that to happen?  Much stronger demand for natural gas because of an early, extreme winter and extended global demand.

Price reacts to supply/demand imbalances.  In this case, if the demand far exceeds the supply capacities headed into the end of 2019, we could easily see Natural Gas rally above $4.00 very quickly.  Could it rally even higher and take out the $5.00 level?  Absolutely it could if the proper dynamics continue related to supply and demand globally.

CURRENT DAILY NATURAL GAS CHART

Remember to read the link from October 5th.  We’ve been warning of this move for more than 60+ days and have authored multiple research posts attempting to keep our followers aware of this setup.  This trade setup was telegraphed for us many months ago.  All you had to do was follow our research and stay aware of the trends as this momentum base setup in October near $2.25.

Natural Gas moved higher by nearly 2% on October 24th as our researchers predicted nearly a month ago.  This incredible momentum base below $2.30 seems to be a very strong support level for Natural Gas.  We believe this next rally may be bigger than the last rally which reached a high near 2.70.  Our Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting a target price of $2.95 to confirm a new upside price trend.  This means the price would have to rally more than +26.5% from current levels to confirm a potentially much bigger upside price move.  Can you imagine seeing Natural Gas climb to above $4.50 again – like last year?

Near the end of October 2018, Natural Gas began an upside price move that really excited investors.  The first upside price leg began in mid-September, near $2.75 and rallied to a level near $3.35 – a +21.6% upside price move.  After a brief 12 to 15 day pause, another price rally began in early November 2018 near $3.23 and continued very aggressively over the next 11+ days to rally up to $4.93 – a +57% rally.

We issued a natural gas trade using UGAZ to members and this week we locked in 38.7% profit on a portion of our position and there is still a lot of upside potential left.

Is the same type of price advance could be setting up for an early November price rally from the $2.30 level to somewhere above $3.50?  This would result in a +50% price rally from recent lows without using any leverage which would be just amazing.

October 5, 2019: NATURAL GAS RELOADS FOR ANOTHER PRICE RALLY

PREVIOUS NATURAL GAS FORECAST DAILY CHART

Our proprietary Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting the $2.95 price level is critical for any further upside price action to continue above $3.00.  The price must cross above the $2.95 level on a strong closing price basis before we could consider any higher price levels to become valid.  Our researchers believe that suggests the $2.75 to $2.85 level becomes a very real upside price target for skilled traders to pull some profits and protect any open long positions.

PREVIOUS NATURAL GAS FORECAST WEEKLY CHART

This Weekly Natural Gas chart highlights our Fibonacci price modeling system’s results and the Bullish Trigger Level near $2.95 (The GREEN LINE).  Pay very close attention to how quickly Natural Gas moved higher in November 2018.  If another move happens like that in 2019, we could be setting up for a big gap higher followed by about 10 to 15+ days of incredible upside price action.

Currently, the price of Natural Gas has crossed the Daily Fibonacci price modeling system’s Bullish Price Trigger level near $2.29.  This suggests that we are now in a confirmed bullish trend as long as the price stays above the $2.26 level on a closing price basis.  We would expect a continued moderate price rally from these levels to move price away from the momentum base level over time – before any breakout upside price move may begin.

This could become one of the best trades, besides Silver and Gold, headed into the end of 2019.  Get ready for some big volatility in Natural Gas as winter weather takes over much of North America.

November will be the month of breakouts and breakdowns and should spark some trades. I feel the safe havens like bonds and metals will be turning a corner and starting to firm up and head higher but they may not start a big rally for several weeks or months.

October was a boring month for most major asset classes completing their consolidation phase. Natural gas was the big mover in October and subscribers and I took full advantage of the bottom and breakout for a 15-22% gain and its till on fire and trading higher by another 3% this week already.

Nominal New Highs Reached, Skilled Traders Should Still Be Cautious

The US Stock market rallied on Friday, October 25, on TESLA earnings crushing expectations as well as news that any positive US trade deal outcomes could see almost immediate removal of future tariffs that are scheduled to be implemented near the end of October.  This was enough for the markets to rally from the start of trading and continue to push higher until near Noon in NY.  After new highs were reached, the markets contracted a bit headed into the close.

Gold shot up early this morning before the news related to the US trade deal hit.  Our opinion is that this is a natural advancement in precious metals that is not new related or muted by some external factors.  Precious metals have been setting up a sideways FLAG formation for over 2 months and we believe the apex/breakout move is near.

Oil was somewhat flat to close out the week and closed trading near $56.63.  The past three days we have seen oil rise from the $53 level to the current price levels, but we believe oil is still fundamentally oversupplied and that price will continue to weaken over time.

The real question before all of us right now is will this new nominal high represent a new breakout bullish price trend heading into a US Presidential Election cycle, or is this more price rotation within a defined price range?

If you consider all the shifting aspects of the US political and economic landscape as well as the current geopolitical and economic factors, we believe any real breakout move will come as we get closer to November 2020 – not now.  We believe this is still price rotation and we believe the NQ is the likely cause of this new nominal price high on Friday.  Tesla crushed earnings and that set a positive tone for Friday’s trading.

TRANSPORTATION INDEX DAILY CHART

The TRAN, Transportation Index, is still trading near current resistance and has not shown any true new price high yet.  It will be interesting to see how the markets open up early next week and what news may drive a new price trend by then.

MID-CAP SECTOR DAILY CHART

The Mid-Cap has failed to rally to recent price highs which suggest this is not a broad market rally.  We would want to see more defined price advancement across all sectors and above recent price highs to call this a broad market rally/breakout

Pay attention to the new that originates this weekend.  We don’t believe a deal will be reached with regards to trade as quickly as some others may believe and we still believe the next 12+ months of the US Presidential election cycle will be full of surprises.  We may start to get more clarity of a true price trend after the New Year (2020).  Until then, we’re staying cautious of these price rotations and picking our trades.

Gold Gifts Traders With Another Rotation Below $1500

Positive expectations related to the US/China trades negotiations on October 10th prompted a moderately strong upside move in the US major indexes and the stock market.

Additionally, the precious metals fell in correlation to the upside move in the US stock market and presented another opportunity for skilled technical traders to look for entries below $1500 in Gold and below $17.75 in Silver.

We can’t stress the importance of this critical $1500 price level in Gold as a key level for all traders to watch.  It has continued to provide key support for Gold since the price rally that initiated in late April 2019.  We believe this level will act as a relatively strong price “floor” going forward and any price activity below $1500 could represent a very opportunistic entry area for skilled traders.

Back in early September, we authored this research post highlighting what we believed would happen going forward 30 to 60+ days for Gold.  At that time, the price of Gold has just rallied above $1500 for the first time in 2019.

We alerted our followers that we believed Gold would stall near the $1550 level, move briefly towards the $1475 to $1500 level, set up a new momentum base near the $1500 price level and begin a new rally soon after this base was complete.  You can read this research post here: https://www.thetechnicaltraders.com/global-market-chaos-means-precious-metals-will-continue-to-rise/ .

GOLD WEEKLY CHART FROM OUR SEPTEMBER 2ND RESEARCH POST

This is a Gold Weekly chart from that September 2 research post.  We still believe our research from that post is accurate and we believe this new move below $1500 is an incredible opportunity for skilled traders that understand the real potential of the future of precious metals.

120 MINUTE GOLD CHART SHOWING PRICE CORRECTION WARNING BEFORE IT HAPPENED

This 120 Minute Gold chart showing the early price decline on October 10, 2019 and highlighting the $1500 price support zone in RED illustrates how price has continued to find this level acting as strong support and how price has, in the past, moved through this level and back above it to form the new “momentum base/bottom” near October 1, 2019.

We believe any move below $1500 (or more precisely – $1495) is a very strong entry point.  Obviously, a price move to lower levels would be even better.  Currently, as long as price stays above the Momentum Base level (near $1463), then we consider the October 1 price rotation the true momentum base “low”.

CURRENT DAILY CHART OF GOLD – SUPPORT ZONE, AND FORECAST

This Daily chart highlights the same $1500 price support zone and clearly illustrates why we believe any price move below $1500 is a very strong opportunity for skilled traders.  The next leg in Gold should push prices above $1700 (possibly higher).  Longer-term, we believe the fear and uncertainty in the global markets will not subside until well after the 2020 US Presidential election cycle completes.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Therefore, we have at least 12 to 16+ months of continued fear driving investor uncertainty in precious metals and as the US political chaos heats up, so will precious metals.  At this point, we believe Gold has just started to “lift-off” in terms of the ultimate upside potential over the longer term.  We’ve discussed the potential of Gold reaching above $3750 and we believe this target level is very valid.

Yesterday I talked about how to trade and where gold, silver and miners were within their bul/bear market cycle which may surprise you. Listen to my thoughts in this Podcast here.

Play these moves accordingly.  This may be the last time you see Gold trading below $1500 for quite a while.

I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for both short-term swing trading and long-term investment capital.

ADL Predicts Oil Prices Will Fall Below $40

There are times when our research team interprets our advanced predictive modeling systems so well that we call a move in the markets 3 to 10+ months in advance of the move actually happening.  It has happened for our team of research so often lately that we are somewhat used to the accolades we receive from our followers and members.  Our October 2018 Gold price predictions are still playing out  accurately and continue to amaze people – even though we made these predictions over 12 months ago.

Today, we wanted to highlight our Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) predictive modeling systems expectations for Crude Oil, but before we get into the details be sure to opt-in to our free market trend signals newsletter. The research post we made on July 10, 2019 (see below).  At that time, we warned that Crude Oil was about to head much lower and that our ADL modeling system was suggesting that Oil prices would rotate between $47 and $64 before breaking much lower in November 2019.  Ultimately, Oil prices will fall below $40 ppb following our timeline and could begin a broader downside move before the end of October 2019.  Read our full prediction/research report from the link below.

SOURCE: July 10, 2019: PREDICTIVE MODELING SUGGEST OIL HEADED MUCH LOWER

We believe the support level near $50.50 will act as a temporary support level over the next 3 to 10+ days before a moderate price breakdown below this level begins.  Our expectations for November 2019 are that oil prices may fall to levels below $45 ppb on a deeper downward price move, yet will recover to levels near $47 near December 2019/January 2020.

We do believe the ultimate target for Crude Oil prices are to levels below $40 ppb and that price may attempt to make a move towards these level as early as January 2020.  Our ADL predictive modeling system has shown us the path for oil prices and, so far, the real price has mirrored this expectation almost perfectly – even the high price in September aligned with our expected high price near $60.

Weakness should dominate in late October and early November – carrying all the way through most of November.  Pay attention to the ADL chart above and our July 10th predictions.  Oil will target levels below $40 by late December 2019 or early January 2020.

All it is going to take is for this $50.50 support level to be tested and breached for the next price move to begin.  Be prepared for the volatility that may hit oil prices near this critical support level and be prepared for the next move to levels near $44~47.

Is The Technology Sector about to break lower?

We believe the current capital shift in the US stock market may be settling into the Technology sector as investors move away from growth and into value.  Technology has recently recovered very nicely from the late December 2018 lows and is currently setting up a very eerily similar pattern across multiple charts.

If our analysis is correct, we believe the Technology sector may be setting up for a downside price breakdown near the APEX of these Pennant/Flag formations that appear in our charts.  Near recent, all-time highs, this downside breakdown could be rather large in size, possibly as much as -20% to -35% or more, and could result in a global stock market decline that could shock most investors/traders.

The economic data that has recently been announced in the US continues to show moderate strength overall.  The jobs numbers are decent.  The consumer is still moderately active and we are getting into the Christmas Rally season.  Yet we are also in the midst of a Presidential Election cycle that continues to heat up and drive almost daily new headlines.  Our opinion is that the US consumer will become fixated on the political theater while we get closer to the November 2020 elections and may curb Christmas/holiday spending if news/perspective suddenly darken.

One of the first sectors we believe could break is the Technology sector – where foreign investors have poured billions into this sector while chasing price gains and to protect against foreign currency devaluation.  Once investors determine Technology is no longer “safe”, then a downside price event (true price exploration) will likely happen and we are concerned the downside risks could be much greater than 20~25%.

This AMD weekly chart provides one of the clearest pictures of the tight Pennant/Flag formation setting up in price.  After a Double-Top type of formation near $35, any further price advance was rejected near $36.  The current tight price rotation after the August 2019 peak suggests a very tight Pennant/Flag formation is setting up.  If our analysis is correct, the APEX/breakout/breakdown event is only a few days away.  Our count of the Pennant rotation suggests the breakdown move (lower) is the most likely outcome.

This AMZN chart highlights a similar pattern to the AMD chart.  Although the current Pennant/Flag formation is a little more defined, the structure is still the same.  An August 2019 high after a Double-Top formation, downward price rotation after the August 2019 peak and a clear APEX setting up RIGHT NOW.  The downside risk in AMZN is clearly a drop to near previous support (near $1310) – -20% or more.

GOOG provides a very clear example of the price volatility that is setting up a major Pennant/Flag formation.. Although the current setup is broader than the previous two examples, the potential for a breakdown event in GOOG is still strong.  The Double-Top pattern near $1280 provides clear resistance.  The recent narrowing price channel sets up a very clear Pennant/Flag formation.  We believe the downside price move in GOOG will initially target the lower price channel, then break that channel and continue lower.

Netflix has already broken below the lower price channel.  This is what brought this entire sector to our attention recently.  If Netflix continues lower, it could draw the entire Technology sector and US major indexes much lower over the next few days/weeks.  The downside price risk in Netflix is easily -25% to -45% – or more.

Our Custom Technology Index chart shows how the overall Technology sector is struggling to stay above the lower price channel.  Our concern is that one or more of the major technology firms may break the lower Pennant channel and attempt to start a breakdown in the US stock market.  If this is the case, then a panic may setup in the markets where investors dump technology very quickly.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

Skilled technical traders are adept at finding ways to profit from nearly any price trends.  A quick trade in TECS or an Inverse NASDAQ ETF would allow many skilled traders to attempt to profit from this APEX/breakdown potential. We don’t have confirmation of the breakdown event just yet, but it certainly appears that the Technology sector could come under some severe pressure over the next 30+ days

Also, take a look at all my precious metals trade signals this year (2019) with a total gain for subscribers of my Wealth Building Newsletter of 41.74% profit. More than double the return than if you bought and held GDXJ gold miners ETF.

My point here is that no matter how much you love metals or technology stocks (and I LOVE them both), you do not need to always be in a position with them. There are times to own, and times to watch with your money safely in cash.

As a technical analysis and trader since 1997, I have been through a few bull/bear market cycles. I believe I have a good pulse on the market and timing key turning points for both short-term swing trading and long-term investment capital. The opportunities are life-changing events in a good way if traded correctly.

The Equities Wedge At The Edge – Front And Center

We continue to alert our followers of the extended Wedge (Flag or Pennant) formation that has setup over the past 16+ months in most of the US major indexes.  The reason these are so important for skilled technical traders is because the Apex of these formations typically result in a violent price move  that may result in a dramatic profit opportunity (or massive risk event).  The most interesting facet of the current Wedge formation is that it is happening just 12 months before the US Presidential Election cycle.

It is our believe that a major price reversion event will begin to take place over the next 2 to 6+ weeks and complete near the end of 2019 or into early 2020.  This reversion event is and continues to align with our super-cycle event analysis from earlier this year.  Our researchers believe this reversion event is essential for price to establish “true valuation levels” and to begin a renewed future price trend.  We believe that trend will begin between June 2020 and August 2020 and will result in a strong bullish price trend.  We also believe this bullish price trend in the US stock market may last well beyond 12+ months – well into 2021 and beyond.

CUSTOM TECHNOLOGY WEEKLY INDEX CHART

This Custom Technology Index chart highlights the Wedge formation that is one of our main concerns.  The Technology sector is one of the most heavily weighted sectors in the US stock market and the one that typically has the highest price to earnings multiple.  Over the past 5+ years, billions have poured into the Technology sector chasing the rally and the security of the US stock market/US Dollar.  A breakdown in this sector (like the DOT COM crash) could be devastating for the global markets.  As you can see, the price is already very close to the lower price channel and could breakdown within the next 2 to 5+ weeks.  Pay attention to weakness in the NASDAQ and/or the technology sector overall.

MONTHLY S&P 500 CHART

This S&P 500 chart highlights the rising Wedge formation that is set up and nearly complete.  This Monthly chart also highlights the extended volatility within the global markets compared to levels prior to 2018.  It is our opinion that the Apex of this Wedge will result in a breakdown/price reversion event targeting levels below 2600 on the SPX.  This reversion could extend to levels below 2000 on extended price weakness.  Our opinion is that the bottom will form sometime between December 2019 and April 2020 where a new Wedge formation will setup before reaching the Apex and starting a new upside price trend near August/October 2020.

We prepared for a very volatile price rotation/reversion event as these Wedges reach their Apex moment.  Skilled technical traders should be able to find lots of opportunity for profits over the next 6+ months with these big price rotations.

WEEKLY US DOLLAR CHART

The US Dollar will likely rotate within the Magenta price channel as this has continued to provide very clear price support over the past 20+ months.  We don’t believe the US Dollar will decline by more than 5% to 7% throughout the reversion event.  The fact is that the US Dollar has regained a level of dominance within the world and the US Dollar may continue to strengthen for many months into the future.

Remember, these reversion events are essential for proper price exploration and future price trends to establish.  They are fundamental to all price activity.  A healthy price rotation will allow for future trends to establish and mature well into 2021~2024.  The current Wedge formations must complete and the Apex rotation must happen in order for price to conduct “true price exploration” and “true price valuation”.  From these levels, price will establish a new price trend that may continue for many years into the future.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

We strongly suggest all readers consider the risks of their open portfolio positions and take steps to protect against any unwanted risk exposure.  As we are suggesting, we believe the Apex event will begin within 2 to 4+ weeks – possibly sooner.  If you want to know what we are advising our clients about this event, visit www.TheTechnicalTraders.com to learn how we can assist you.

Is A Price Revaluation Event About To Happen?

Skilled technical traders must be aware that price is setting up for a breakout or breakdown event with recent Doji, Hammer and other narrow range price bars.  These types of Japanese Candlestick patterns are warnings that price is coiling into a tight range and the more we see them in a series, the more likely price is building up some type of explosive price breakout/breakdown move in the near future.  The ES (S&P 500 E-mini futures) chart is a perfect example of these types of price bars on the Daily chart (see below).

Tri-Star Tops, Three River Evening Star patterns, Hammers/Hangmen and Dojis are all very common near extreme price peaks and troughs.  The reason they form is that price is unable to rally or fall far enough within a normal trading day to project broader range types of Japanese Candlestick patterns and these rotational/top/bottom types of Japanese candlestick patterns are often found at or near key reversal points in price.  When they form in a series, like we are seeing currently, it is a very ominous warning that price will react in an explosive movement – either UP or DOWN. Be sure to opt-in to our Free Trade Ideas Newsletter.

Here are some examples of how these types of Japanese Candlesticks may appear in a chart.

Hammer type of patterns are similar to Doji pattern because the difference between the open/close price is very narrow.  Yet, instead of the Open/Close range forming near the middle of the price bar, Hammers form when this range forms near the high or low of the price bar.  They fall into the “umbrella” group of patterns and warrant a bit of extra consideration depending on where they form in price.  The can often create very clear warning signals just prior to a major price reversal.

SP500 (ES) DAILY CHART

This ES Daily chart highlights the sideways DOJI/HAMMER price channel that is setting up over the past 5+ trading days.  We believe this sideways, narrow price range, is going to prompt a massive price breakout or breakdown in the near future.  Historically, this current price level is strong resistance, thus, until we see any price move above 3035 on the ES, we must assume this resistance will continue to hold and a breakdown event may be the likely outcome.  The only way we can determine if price is capable of attempting to move higher is to wait for price to actually make a new high price above previous resistance.

MID CAP INDEX DAILY CHART

This MC, MidCap, Daily chart highlights the same period of time, but notice the range of the price bars on this MC chart are broader in range and scope.  We are not seeing Dojis bars like we are seeing on the ES chart.  This suggests that the real price action is taking place in the MidCap market, the Transportation Index and other trading instruments.  We would likely need to watch how the rest of the market is reacting to this sideways trading while attempting to understand that the S&P is setting up for a big breakout or breakdown event.

MID CAP INDEX WEEKLY CHART

This MC Weekly chart hSP500 (ES) Daily Chartelps us to understand the past 2+ years price rotation and why the current price levels, near 2000, are so important.  In January 2018, price collapsed from these levels.  In October 2018, price again collapsed from these levels – into a massive -24.85% downside move.  Currently, we’ve seen price test the 1995 level multiple times and fail.  Will it fail again and what is the potential for a broader downside price move?

As we stated earlier, until price is able to clear the 2000 price level, we must assume that resistance near 2000 will continue to hold and that price is more likely to move lower than higher at this time.  The only way we can determine if price is going to attempt to rally is to wait for it to attempt to reach a new high price from within recent price rotation.

Headed into this weekend, we would strongly suggest that all skilled technical traders plan for and prepare for some type of external new events, crisis events or anything that could drive price higher or lower.  It seems news is one of the biggest driving factors in the global markets recently.  Traders/investors are waiting for an impetus to drive trends.  The US Fed dropping rates really didn’t do much to improve investor sentiment.  It appears global traders want something BIGGER and BROADER to push prices higher at this time.  Improved global trade and economic ties would do it – but we don’t think that is going to happen within the next 3+ months.
