Here Comes The Air Pocket!

The astro/cycle/wave read between now and August 15th looks for a quick abrupt air pocket of close to 3% in the SPX.  At first, I was looking for a Wave 4 pullback to 2132/33 by late Friday, but upon re-examination, I believe it will be more in the order of 2122 by Monday.  Normally, lows in the market don’t go past the moon in Sagittarius (late Thursday –Saturday), but I have to remind myself of Uranus Retrograde: expect the unexpected.

What’s exciting about this wave count is: it is truly a "5 wave count" C Wave.  I have not seen a true 5 wave sequence since the year 2000.  Many so called E-Wavers have not read R.N. Elliott’s original works and end up forcing 3 wave sequences into 5 waves. There are rules that MUST be abided by in order to properly ascertain the correct count.

The chart below goes through some of those rules:

This second chart is an hourly chart of the SPX supposing a target of 2132/33 by late Friday with all the minute e-wave counts (I could have gone deeper):

This third chart shows the same target of 2132/33 with a larger picture of where we are (near THE top for the year):

While 2132/33 or even 2122 are possible by the end of day Friday, it is highly unlikely. My best guess is a maximum of 2144/45 Friday and 2121/22 by late Monday.

Once THE top is put in (late next week), I believe we begin an ABC type drop into late November that could take us down to the 1700 level or even lower (1635/40?).  Wave A should take us down into the September 8th or 9th timeframe and should be the shortest (or equal) wave of the sequence. I believe the initial A Wave decline could be about a 13% before we go into a sideways bear flag into late October or early November.

No matter what the FED may do, I don’t believe that they can hold up the stock market enough to try and put Hillary in the White House. Good news for Trump supporters?

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
