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?
