LT wave for February

Markets have finally started a pullback. We did get a 1% down day for first time since August and we also got a 2% down week for the first time since Sep 2016. This means we are starting to see more volatility, but that doesn’t mean this bull market is over already. See my recent article.

Here is the current S&P 500 chart:

^SP500 (Daily) 4_27_2016 - 2_2_2018

No major trend lines have been broken so far, but all my indicators are pointing down now. The Earl (blue line) peaked out a week ago and is dropping fast. The slower Earl2 painted a major peak a few days ago and is nowhere near bottom territory. The MoM indicator has also turned down after reaching the maximum euphoria +10 for a few days. This is not how a good buying opportunity looks like, but we are entering a lunar green period and I do expect some strong rebound days, but probably not new highs any time soon.
I would just wait for the dust to settle and once my 3 indicators start bottoming out we can look for new buying entries.

The LT wave did poorly in January. Expected strength in the first weeks panned out ok, but that strength continued well into the projected weak period. Those gains were given back in the last week, so it wasn’t too bad after all. But the timing of peaks and bottoms didn’t match.
Here is the LT wave for February:


It looks very volatile with alternating stronger and weaker weeks. Peak LT wave values come on the 5th and 17th. And the bottom values are projected around the 11th and the 23rd. I have no idea how this will pan out. The market may just dance around within the wide range that is set by the recent January high and the possible low that we get in early February.
