Market Update - 08/07/2017

It’s Showtime!

The July 10, Market Update laid out our case for a tradable high in equities to commence sometime by August. We now have a host of reasons (laid out in this report) for thinking that high is now upon us. It’s Showtime!

As explained in the July 10 Market Update, a 15yr interval points to a tradable top (within the ongoing bull market) in the period September 2016 to August 2017 and we have come to the end of the forecast period.

A popular approach of Lindsay’s was his low-low-high interval. Lindsay showed that counting the number of trading days between two important lows often leads to a high the same number of days into the future. The distance between the lows on 2/11/16 and 11/4/16 was 186 days. Counting forward another 186 days targets a top near August 3, 2017. 

Seasonally, a top in August makes total sense as August and September are the two weakest months of the year for equities.

The Decennial pattern warns of a nasty sell-off in equities during years ending in the number 7 (i.e. 2017).  Since 1907 each of these years (with the exception of 1947 which suffered a mere 6.2% drop) has seen a double-digit decline beginning somewhere between June and October.
