SHORT-TERM: 63% CHANCES A GREEN NEXT WEEK BUT THERE’LL BE A DIP FIRST TO EVEN REVISIT THE 05/25 LOWS
63% chances we’ll see a green week the next week, however, chances are even higher that there’ll be a dip (before eventually close in weekly green) below the Friday’s close even to revisit the 05/25 lows.
The chart below is my final evil plan for the part of the next week which I’ve mostly mentioned in 05/27 Trading Signals. I made a little modification though as now statistics seems to argue that the chances for a dip are pretty high.
The statistics below argues for a 63% chances a green close the next week but also 93% chances there’ll be a dip of some kind (before eventually closes in green). Besides, see seasonality session below, also argues that there’re 64% chances a green close the next week. By the way, be careful about “the 3rd time is the charm”, because since the March 2009 bull market, this has been the 3rd 4 consecutive red weeks. The previous 2 turned out to be a great chance to retire earlier, just now the question is: Will the 3rd time be different? That said, this so called the 3rd time is merely a speculation for fun, not even a warning as in the intermediate-term session below, you’ll see my forecast is a new high but chances are good that the rally for the 3rd time will be far less than the previous 2 times.
There’re 3 additional reasons why I’m looking forward to a dip of some kind the next week:
- As mentioned in 05/24 Market Outlook, 70% chances SPX will close below 05/24 close.
- As mentioned in 05/26 Market Outlook, 69% chances SPX will close below 05/26 close.
- The 3rd argument is actually the most important one: 0.2.4 Nasdaq Total Volume/NYSE Total Volume spikes again. If you’ve been following me recently, then should have little doubt about this signal now. Actually, the most that makes me feel uneasy is 8.1.1 Normalized NATV/NYTV. The chart below shows all the past cases when the normalized value was higher than that of now, looks obvious that the chances for a dip are pretty high.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: MAY SEE NEW HIGH, TARGETING SPX 1352 to 1381 AREA, BIG CORRECTION MAY FOLLOW AFTER THAT
For the intermediate-term, I believe we’ll see a new high but even higher chances, the wave count in the chart below could be right that SPX 1381 (Refer to 04/01 Market Recap for how I get the SPX 1381 target) is indeed the wave 5 final target.
Why do I expect a new high?
- 3 push up pattern looks still missing the final push up.
- The most recent II Correction % spikes too high which according to the red lines below almost guarantees that there’ll be a new high ahead, then followed by a real correction (attention, this chart also is the reason I believe there’ll be a real correction ahead, just it could be a new high first then followed by a correction).
The chart below is another reason (besides the II Correction % above) I believe there’d be a bigger correction ahead: OEX Open Interest Ratio looks a lot like that of year 2007. OEX option traders are famous for being mostly correct about the market, now with this huge open interest ratio, chances are pretty high that something is in the cooking.
