Weekend Update – P3 Is Here!

Monday Update...

______________________________________________________________________________________

Wow!  What an ugly sell off on Friday... so what's next?

[pro-player width='425' height='344' type='video']http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hS2HfjR9oPM&feature=player_embedded[/pro-player]

(to watch on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hS2HfjR9oPM&feature=player_embedded)

The answer... One Ugly Week!  While I still think Monday will be an UP day, the overall week should be down hard.  I know that seems strange to say, but after such a large move down there is usually a bounce... even if it's only a small bounce.  Think like a gangsters, and you'll figure out that most amateurs went short into the weekend, thinking a crash is coming on Monday.

So what would you do to steal there money?  I'd gap it up on Monday and create a short squeeze... but I'm not saying that's what is going to happen, as I really don't know (I give that about a 1% chance of happening)?  The market could fool everyone and gap down and crash as Atilla seems to think.  He could be correct on this, as that would fool the amateur bulls.

(to watch on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmxLaYUWVc8)

So what are there in the market... more amateur bulls or bears?  I don't know?  Cobra gives Monday a 81% chance of closing up from past statistics when the Vix rises more then 18% in one day.  Will this time be different?  It seems too me that the first sell off (wave 1 down) is usually retraced very heavily to squeeze out the bears, before the real multiday move down happens (wave 3).

The question isn't whether or not this is a wave 1 down, as that's obvious.  The question is where it ends?  Did it end on Friday, with Monday and possibly Tuesday having the wave 2 up retracement wave to follow?  Looking back at other similar periods there was an up period everytime at some point in the following week, before that week close out down hard.

I'm thinking that Monday will be up just a little bit, (maybe a spinning top, or "pause" day), and then a squeeze up on Tuesday... followed by the rest of the week selling off hard.  How far up, I don't know?  I'll be looking for upside FP's, but right now I don't have any.

Make no mistake about this forecast, I DO expect this coming week to be down hard... but it shouldn't be straight down yet.  That shouldn't happen until we are in a wave 3 of 3 of 3, etc... which isn't here yet, and might not be here for several months.

Now, there still is the possibility that TPTB cause something to happen before Monday which would just cause a gap down and crash on Monday.  Anything is possible here, but the past statistics say they we will go up on Monday and/or Tuesday before moving back down into wave 3 (which could easily hit that 1150-1200 range that Atilla mentioned).

These riots in the middle east are growing, and could spark the "crash" that TPTB have been planning, while us sheep try to predict the date.  We could very well open on Monday and drop like a rock!  I can't answer that?  I can only look at past history, and state that it's more likely to bounce back up with a wave 2 first.

If I allow myself to get caught up in this news, I'll likely be one of the bears trapped during a squeeze.  I've did that before in the past, and I always got burnt.  They want to distract you with the news, so you will get long or short when they want you too.  Right now, I think there are a lot of new retail shorts in the market from Friday's sell off, which was simply panic from the "unknown" situation in the news.

There "will be" a "news event" or false flag that will cause the crash... this middle eastern crisis could very well be it?  I don't know "what" it is, only that something will cause the crash.  TPTB have that already planned out, and I'm sure they have their evil little minions helping to fuel the riots over there.

So, I really don't know what is going to happen on Monday, but if things play out like they did in the past, then Monday and possibly Tuesday will be UP days.  If the past does work, the we can safely say that "this time it's different" and actually be right for once.  So for now, I'll wait for a bounce to get back short again... and hope I get the chance?

For those already short, I'd just sit tight a wait out any bounce (if we get one?) as by the end of the week the market should be a whole lot lower.

Good luck everyone...

Sudden upward moves in Silver prices usually happen after a gradual correction downward, and they tend to take the inexperienced metal investing public by surprise.

So do you think silver will go back down as the USD rises?

Reply to  Instigator928

I’m puzzled by Silver too, as I don’t have any downside FP’s on it… so I don’t know where it’s going when the market tanks? But, if JPM has anything to do with it, they will push it down to cover all the shorts they have. Once they close up all their shorts, maybe then we can go up to the 84.30 FP?

Uncertainty is a driving factor. Interest rates are also important in relation to silver.

There are technical reasons why Silver should go down with the market and the rising dollar. However, one should not ignore the fundamental reasons why Silver should be worth much more.

I say, buy on the dips. Hold the physical stuff and you will be rewarded in the long term of things.

Most of us already know this recovery is a failed attempt. This farce can only continue for so long…

As expected, the long tentacles of the Fed are spreading overseas in order to pump all the markets that open before the US. ES futures also. Gold down while the dollar is up. 7 1/2 hours to the open…Madman Ben must have bags under his eyes trying to find creative ways to pump the entire world…

the egypt news is the ganst’as new signal for sell off days, so sell off days, can happen at their whim, next couple of weeks, is how i’m playing it. 40% shorts going into each overnight for protection is a good idea. imo.

well red,

you were right again…. a small bounce come monday morning!! my “expect the unexpected” warning was ‘off base’….. lets see how this transpires out. there seems to me so much ‘risk’ that is far from being priced into the market, which will need pricing in as events unfold.

I wasn’t expecting a gap up, but yeah… I figured we’d go up today. I’m looking for 1288-1290 spx as a top for this wave 2 up. That’s my shorting area.

Maybe? Hard too tell as the actually level is so close to the opening price that the could be simply late fills. I think it said 130.01, which is just shy of the opening high of 130.33… so that FP is questionable?

There is still the possibility that we go down one more time to lure in more bears, but the first couple of hours are where it should happen (if it happens) as that’s where the most volume is.

The last hour is also important, and could give us the “B” wave down in this suspected ABC move up (to a 50% or 61.8% Fib. level, I’d estimate), with A taking most of the day, and C likely to happen tomorrow.

Not sure what this means, but I watch the SQQQ (3x short NASDAQ)….its got 2.1 million shares of float, it had buy volume of 720k shares the first hour of trading today. 1) Could have been people closing positions or 2) could have been new positions….either way, it says the big boys are not likely long the market any longer or may have established massive short positions…IMHO.
BTW, this is the largest volume ever recorded in an hour for this trading vehicle (SQQQ)

Thanks for the update. I agree, it’s not a time to get long. While I still think that we will go up for a wave 2 in the next few days, that’s only short term, and these big boy’s can’t get in and out at that quickly.

So they have to inch their way in, day by day. I bet there has been similar (but smaller) long positions taken on the 3x bear share on the qqqq’s within the last several weeks.

This is just one more nail in the coffin saying that the rally is officially dead, and just breathing its’ last gasp of air right now before finally dying.

LOL… just sit back and wait Richie. By Wednesday I believe she will be topped. It’s a beautiful day outside here in Florida. I’ve opened up the windows to let the fresh air in. It helps to clear out my thoughts. Sorry for everyone still stuck with cold weather up north… bummer. That’s why I moved to Florida in 1989.

Just hang tight Richie, and sit on your hands. Worst case scenario is that we go up past the 50% or 61.8% Fib level (around 1288-1290 spx) and hit the questionable FP of 130.01 spy from Friday. Either way, this week should end a lot lower.

Red Dragon Leo

Reply to  Red Dragon Leo

Sorry, I’ve been saying SPX… I mean ES, which is about 5-6 points lower then the SPX right now, but they have previously be in sync with each other.

When the ES hits 1288-1290, (whatever level the SPX is at), I think the bounce should be about over with. But, time is important too, and I don’t see that happening before Wednesday.

Jacksonville Florida (technically Atlantic Beach, but the big city is Jax).

And yes, this is looking like a small B wave down now. I think we’ll see the C wave up tomorrow. I wish I knew the exact target, but I’ll just be looking at the ES for a move to around 1288-1290, and then short the spy… where ever it may be at?

Could be a FP? It just had on large candle down to 17.10, but the next candle is at 18.25+… very strange? I’d say we will revisit that 17.10 level by Wednesday at the latest.

But, a crash is coming… and I expect it to start by this Thursday and continue into next Monday, as well as the rest of next week.

The Legatus Pilgrimage will happen this February 3rd-5th, so next week we should see the market turn down hard.

Not likely Dee. Most wave 2’s seem to make a ABC move up. This only has only had one way up now (the A wave), and seems too be making a B wave down now. I still do expect to see a C wave up tomorrow, taking us up to about the 50% fib. level on the ES.

If all goes as planned, we should go up again tomorrow. But again, this is only a wave 2 bounce, and wave 3 down should start by no later then this Thursday on the job’s data or some other news. A big move down is coming, and it will likely be called a crash.

I have two scenarios:

1. wave 2 is contained at 1292 on $SPX (A went to the highs, B back to 1282, C comes tomorrow), certainly no higher than 1296.
2. you’ve been fooled again, and we gap n go to 1315.

$CRB (commodities index) set a new high today, eclipsing the old one by over 1%. Copper will probably set a new high tomorrow. Recently, copper has been a leading indicator.

Hard to believe that it can go much higher. The last 3 weeks has been 100% dollar driven upwards. Hammering the dollar every day except Friday, which was dollar strength. They would have to spend a crazy amount of money to drive the dollar down significantly upwards.

I think people caught on to the desperation of POMO on Wed & Thurs because offers to sell were on the overly large side. Hard to say what will happen now. RSI only recovered a bit today.
