Stock Market Update

The chart below shows an alternative wave count to the one I proposed earlier this week. At this juncture (8/9/16), we have made a new high at 2187. The daily Stochastics is not confirming this new high, and the top looks irregular along with a tight Bollinger Band. In the past, the market may have pulled back nearly 10% from one of these tops and taken several weeks to do so. But, we have Uranus Retrograde and we may expect the unexpected, especially since the moon conjuncts Saturn and Mars over the next few days in the exaggerated sign of Sagittarius as we get closer to Saturn "Stationary Direct" (lows are often made while the moon is in Sagittarius).

The alternative scenario has the SPX dropping suddenly into the 32 TD low due on August 11 to as low as the 2089, 50% retracement area of the move from the June 27th 20-week low (wave 'b' of "c"), and then rallying one more rally into August 17th to near 2219/20 (wave 'c' of "c") forming a 66 week cycle top from the May 20th, 2015 high. This scenario would mirror 32 TD's ago (June 23-27), but not as deep, as the degree wave is not the same.

Normally, wave 'b' would go back into the shadow of the previous wave "b" and that is between 2074 and 2109. IF the SPX hits the top of the rising trends tops next week, then that should be the high of the year and the market would then tumble down into a Wave A of Z low (Wave C being November) somewhere around September 7 where the perfect 10 week, 50 TD low is located (June 2nd is within reach also at 48 TD's -2 TD's).

IF the SPX fails to get down through 2147/48 this week, all bets are off for any higher upside targets for the month, the earlier scenario would likely see the SPX taking out the June 27 low by September 2.

The market is like playing a chess grand master, you have to figure out what the possible moves are and position yourself accordingly.

BluStar Market Timer Investment Philosophy: The stock market is currently in a technical Elliott Wave Bear Market Rally. It has been exhibiting A-B-C type waves instead of the normal 5 Waves since the market topped in 2000. According to "The Original Works of R.N. Elliott", we are due for a move down to about the S&P 500 442/443 area in the next few years. In my opinion, this is no longer a buy and hold market, but a traders' market. We mainly swing trade the market with funds and ETF's, but otherwise trade according to the market's disposition and to the traders' discretion. For the year 2014, BluStar Market Timer is rated #1 according to Timer Trac. http://www.blustarmarkettimer.info
