Monday Update for Tuesday...
Bullish OPX Week?
Most option expiration weeks are bullish, and I expect this one too be so as well (barring another false flag event, or planned default of some country of course). We are in the light volume season of the summer months now, and the market can easily be control now with a lot less money... aka Free Printed Money given to the PPT.
So, the question is... which way do they want to take the market? I think they want to take it up for awhile, as the media is still very bearish (at it seems that way to me). I'm looking for a small pullback early in the week (Monday and possibly Tuesday too), and then a move higher or sideways the rest of the week.
The daily chart supports a move up this week, but how far is anyone's guess? Many say it will go to the next Fib. Level of 1085 or so, and others say about 1100. I think we will go to 112.41, either by the end of this week or the next. I think we are in a larger wave 2 up on the weekly chart now, and that would support a higher move up then just the Fib. Levels.
However, it could take 2-4 weeks to get up there... should it not put in a lower low on the histogram bar for the weekly chart to discredit this analysis. The monthly is still bearish, which certainly confirms that we are moving down overall. But, we should have rallies back up within the shorter time frames of course.
I'm not too good a counting elliottwaves, but if the weekly chart did complete a 5 wave down pattern, to form a larger wave 1 down, then we could be in larger wave 2 up now. If so, then several weeks of grinding higher is going to be needed to shake off the bearishness that is still out there.
We already had one week of a rally, and this week up could be enough to satisfy a larger wave 2 up in that week chart, but it could drag out for a third or fourth week. I don't think it will, but I do think that the 112.41 spy print will be hit before another serious move down will start.
If that target is hit this week, then I can see another larger move down starting the following week. So, while I do believe we will close this week out positive, it might only get to either the 1085 Fib. Level, or the 1100 Level by this coming Friday. That would mean that the following week would be needed to hit the 112.41 spy target (about 1120 spx).
On a shorter time frame, I think we could go down on Monday and early Tuesday, and then up into Friday. The 1060 area would be a very shallow pullback, but with no selling pressure yet, that could be all we get? The 1040 level is more likely, and should be the pullback low. Then up to start the "C" wave up in an ABC move from the 1010 low.
For the bears, I'd wait until that daily chart finishes putting in a lower tower high on the histogram bars before shorting. It wouldn't surprise me if we only went down to 1060, before ramping up higher into Friday. There were probably some bears that went short on Friday, because we hit the 50% Fib. Level... which also makes me think they might push up with that last gasp (on the 15 and 60 minute charts) to 1085 Monday morning,and then roll over.
If so, then 1060 area is more likely the downside target, and then a move up into Friday. If it rolls over at the open or even gaps down, then I believe 1040 is more likely the downside move for the "B" wave. Personally, I'll feel much better on the short side once that 112.41 print is hit. For now, the bulls have control. The only thing next week that can move the market, is earnings... and you know how easy that is too make up.
It's not going to last for long though folks. All this bullishness will be over soon, and the bears will rejoice again. But for next week, the bears should take a vacation... as any move down is best left for day traders, not swing traders.
Good luck to all you bulls and bears out there...
