The State of the Trend

The SPX closed 1% above our 2017 year-end high target posted here on January 1, 2017. Throughout the year, the index followed closely the 1 x 1 angle, and changed direction at anticipated cycle turning points.

Year 8 of the decennial cycle is mostly bullish with a notable weak 30 year cycle. 2008 offered the most extreme example of such weakness.

The bullishness of years ending in 8 has to be tempered by the fact that this is the second longest rally on record in the last 120+ years. And while there’s no law prohibiting the current rally from becoming the longest on record, the odds of a sizeable correction increase with each passing day.
