Counting The Days Until The Stock Market Crash…

Thursday Update...

(to watch on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PE496DuQqRo)

Strong chance of a 50% retracement bounce tomorrow, but that leave next with high odds of a crash.

Red

While I'm not sure if the market is topped for sure, everything is pointing to a crash coming very soon!

(to watch on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CnPlDEgCZg)

Whether it is days away or weeks is unknown?  That 135.14 spy print is still out there and could be a real FP or a false one?  I don't know what it is?  There is lot's of technical damage done to the market right now, and the market could just as easily do a 50% retracement tomorrow, followed by a nice wave 3 down on Friday.

I was expecting a bounce today, but it sold off a little more to probably finish a 5th wave down inside a larger wave 1 down.  So, "if" the top is really in... then we should rally up to some Fib level tomorrow to make a wave 2 up.  Then a wave 3 down could start on Friday.

This is just one scenario, as the other one would indicate an ABC move higher to hit a double top, with a quick pierce above to hit that 135.14 print.  Everything looks extremely bearish right now... which is why I'm worried that a bear squeeze happens and smacks the bears in the face again.

I hope I'm wrong on that call, and it's only a wave 2 up with wave 3 to 5 down still yet to follow... instead of an ABC move up.  We have another intraday print at 132.85 spy from Tuesday, which is about at the 50% Fib level from last Fridays' high to today's low.  If we make it up to that level, and the short term charts start to look over bought again, it would be a good spot to get short again.

However, it might also just be an A wave up, and then a small B down would come next... which would NOT take out the current low, followed by a C wave up squeezing out all the newly trapped bears.  So be careful at that level, as it could be a trap?

What I think would be best is for a slow move up all day finally hitting that area late in the afternoon, within 2 hours of the close.  That would indicate that the market is still too weak to go higher, as it struggled all day long just to hit a 50% Fib level.

But, if it quickly goes up to that level within the first hour of the day, then it could sell off into a B wave down, and then have a C wave up into the close.  The key here is to see how strong the market is during the light volume/midday period.  The first couple of hours and the last hour will usually have the strongest volume... hence the strongest buying pressure, or selling pressure.

That's how you just get a feel for the market as it could go either way?  Once the 50% level is hit, look at the charts and check the volume, as well as other markets related to the spx (the dollar, oil, gold, etc...).   It's not easy, that's for sure!  While I'm bearish and think that the market is only going to hit the 50% fib level and then roll over into a wave 3 down by Friday, I won't rule out the possibility of a big rally either.

We are in dangerous waters now, and both bulls and bears are going to be tricked equally.  Just don't bet all your chips on one color... that's all.

What was that guys named that does youtube video’s that said he was told that they were going to rally up past the top from the huge head and shoulder pattern that formed in 2010? I think he was a black guy, from the sound of his voice? He was right on that call, and I wondered if he had new video’s out? You emailed me his link sometime last year, so he might be on your list of people to watch?

From the looks of how weak this tape is, the chances of a crash tomorrow are increasing each hour. It looks like it’s going to take all day to rally up to back test the broken trendline around 1320 or so. This is very bearish right now…

Reply to  richie

We are forming a triangle right now, which could break up or down? If the double bottom holds for now, then the market can go back up and test the falling trendline of resistance and back down to the horizontal support line (at the double bottom) several more times before coming to the apex of this triangle.

New intraday FP of 131.03 just now. That’s above the falling trendline on the triangle that the market is in right now. While that probably isn’t a target level, it could be a direction indicator?

The news won’t matter Richie. They will only focus on something good tomorrow to give a reason for the rally. The GDP numbers are out tomorrow and they are easy to manipulate. The news will focus on the good part and not cover the bad news. Hence the market will rally and squeeze out the shorts. Remember, the news is there to distract the sheep.

I see a clear 5 wave pattern down right now, from the top last Friday to the current low today. I’m no elliottwave expert, but we “may” have put in a short term bottom, completing wave 1 down.

If so, we should have an ABC move up tomorrow and possibly Monday. It should be at some Fib level (50% or even 61.8%). I’ve been wrong too many times in the past thinking the market was going to crash when it went down in a similar pattern, only to see a wave 2 rally kill my shorts. I remain in cash.

A gap down in the morning would be a good spot to go long… if they don’t have good GDP numbers. Either way, gap up or down, I see a rally tomorrow.

Red, shorts are were at record lows, before move started…Shorts were burned so many times, and now, all are taking any profits very quickly…thus, I don’t think you can count on any major short squeezes any longer… Also, overall economy picture is becoming clear to all…there was no recovery for anybody, but bankers bonuses (banks are still loaded with crap, so they didn’t recover)…food riots will put stop QE3…also, government is likely to shutdown next week…
What will move this market lower are margin calls…Margin calls will undo any POMO coming in…plus, POMO has no strings attached, so banks will be looking to preserve liquidity, not buy more stocks, if we start moving down

Gang, I don’t think this is the start of wave 3 down. I think this is only wave B down, with C up to follow on Monday or late into the end of today. It just isn’t high enough for a wave 2 up I believe.

Just a feeling of course, as I could be wrong on this, but I don’t think it isn’t that simple to just get short on the first bounce up and ride it down. They will shake some bulls and bears out… you all should know that by now.

I don’t know Dee? It just looks like the market has went to sleep again. The volume is low (only 84 million on the spy right now), and low volume always favors the bulls.

I think that once the 15 minute dips below zero (almost there now) and recycles back up, we’ll have our C move up into the close. Depending on how high it goes will decide for me if I should go short over the weekend or wait. I want to see the volume and action in the move, as well as what level it goes too.

Hey Red…what do you make of this. I have a scan on Finviz that is to locate momentum stocks moving higher. Weird results today, not sure if it constitutes as a fake print…never really caught one before. To be honest, never even knew about them until I started to come to your site.

Here is a print screen of my results. It’s odd that the contra etf’s are showing up when their down today. Other than the etf’s…just a bunch of energy related names.
