King-World-News-Celente-This-Will-Trigger-Panic-On-Wall-Street-Around-The-World-864x400 cFrom Jason Goepfert at SentimenTrader:  The Dow has had a big little losing streak. Over the past 30 days, the index has seen 27 days with either a loss or tiny gain. That’s among the worst stretches since 1900, especially when the overall loss is small and it occurs relatively close to a multi-year high. The others usually led to gains over the next several months, and the exceptions’ losses were all small…

Thursday’s, April 13th, 2017, trading displayed some evidence of “exhaustive selling”. It is still trading well above its 200- simple moving day average. The BULLISH RALLY has not stopped.

In identical occurrences, based on historical data, the one-month returns, during which the SPX rallied 15 out of 16 times with a greater than 5-to-1 reward-to-risk ratio. “Emotional selloffs” occur in strong uptrends which have only presented themselves with greater buying opportunities.  This is the predominate case we are facing during this month of April.

Wave A is the first of three waves in the corrective phase. Corrections are almost always more difficult to identify than impulse waves and most investors confuse them as interim corrections. Volume might increase in Wave A and volatility will also rise, although not nearly enough to imply a bottom.

Wave B tends to be the most difficult to identify. The volume of Wave B tends to be lower than that of Wave A. Wave B will consist of three sub waves and should retrace at least .62 percent of Wave A.

Wave C is often very impulsive and marks end of the current corrective phase. Volume may be higher in Wave C than in Wave A. Wave C is made up of five sub waves and terminates beyond the end of Wave A. Some studies suggest that Wave C should not continue beyond 1.618 times Wave A, but this is not a rule

The cart below shows the worst-case scenario based on current analysis. The low put in during the month of March could be in fact a bottom as there was a very small A-B-C correct pattern in March already.


The momentum oscillators are now working themselves to the oversold levels.  The SPX is in the midst of its Corrective Wave ‘A-B-C’ that has further to go on the downside.

There is no desire to rally.  It appears that SPX is beginning its’ Wave C and it should see follow thru to the downside the next couple of weeks.  The bond markets and gold markets will continue to have a very short-term run up, trading with a negative correlation to stocks.

Giving Credit Too Easily

The key line is about banks pulling back and "new players with looser lending are stepping in". This reminds of the culmination of the 1772 Bubble. The Ayr Bank was newly formed and became an aggressive lender in the final stages of that mania. The partners were out to show the older banks what the world of new finance was all about. The collapse ruined most of its investors and became a subject in Adam Smith’s book, The Wealth of Nations. An inquiry completed in 1777 listed some reasons for the failure. One was "giving credit too easily".

As with most great bubbles, that one climaxed in June and then the contraction started. As usual, the panic got underway in late September and cleared in November. The post-bubble contraction ran the usual twenty years.

For new readers, the great bubbles completed in 1720, 1772, 1825, 1873, 1929 and 2007. All had common characteristics and consequences.

And Papua New Guinea—it was only a few decades ago when the national pastime was headhunting. The key concept in the proposed issue is "dollar bonds", due and payable in New York in dollars.

Todd Market Forecast: Most Indicators Looking For a Trading Bottom

Todd Market Forecast for Wednesday April 12, 2017

Available Mon- Friday after 6:00 P.M. Eastern, 3:00 Pacific.

DOW - 59 on 1100 net declines

NASDAQ COMP - 31 on 1050 net declines



STOCKS: Most of our indicators are looking for a trading bottom, but it takes more than this. The market has to demonstrate that it can actually move higher and so far that hasn't happened.

The main problem continues to be geopolitical. There is the potential for armed conflict in Korea and the U.S. and Russia aren't getting along too well in the Middle East.

GOLD: Gold rose another $12. A sharp dollar drop and geopolitics remain a factor.

CHART The S&P 500 is finally oversold as measured by 5 day RSI. This is normally a positive. It would help if world tensions would lessen.
