april 27, 2015 weekly outlook

The outlook for the week is somewhat unclear, but we will give it a shot.  The longer 20 week cycle is up, while the half cycle (10 week) is down.  Taken together these 2 cycles offset to a large extent.

The 5 week cycle (24TDs) is up, the 2.5 week (12 TDs) is down.  These 2 cycles will offset to a large extent. 

The TSI had a positive cross late last week while the CCI is now in the overbought area.  Again offsetting indicators.

Some are predicting (because of ATHs - All Time Highs) we will see an upside breakout.  Again some indexes set ATHs and others didn't - so not a clear situation......

With positives and negatives conflicting makes sideways seem most likely for the week.  Here is a visual:

Apr 20, 2015 weekly outlook

Prior week ended on a down day.  Looks like any move down will be fairly short. The 2 shorter cycles should bottom by mid week and turn up.  The 10 week cycle has topped and turned down but will have minimal impact until it gains some down momentum.  The 20 week cycle moves up toward a top in 4+ weeks.  I expect the market to pull back into mid week and then turn up the last half of the week.

Apr 13, 2015 weekly outlook

The Wall cycle is up providing some upside push. The 24TD cycle is also up providing some upside push (as well). The 12TD cycle should top (upside push into mid week - then down).  Potential of index highs mid-week. The 12TD cycle should turn down by end of the week.  The remaining cycle will be topping during the week and provide little contribution up or down.

Over all expect highs by mid week and then the market starts a fade into the following week (April 20 week). Here is a visual:

04/17 - futures looking weak prior to open, but you never know.  Still, I had speculated that we would top mid-week and drift lower by end of week.

Apr 6, 2015 weekly outlook

This past week it appears that the 12TD cycle probably topped early giving us a left translated top.  What does this tell us?  Usually a left translated top implies more down days than up days to follow.  More down days implies a good probability of more downside than upside.

The 24 TD cycle has topped and is now  down.  The 12TD cycle should be up, but as noted above the left translated top may lead to  an inversion of normal pattern (down instead of up).  The longer cycles are up, so usually we would be looking for the shorter cycles to offset and see a sideways move over the week +/- 1-2%, but I suspect it will be with a downward bias.

Given the weeks employment report on Friday, volatility should continue and time for first qtr earnings and they are not expected to be good.

Here is visual as best as I can determine:

Mar 30, 2015 weekly outlook

This is the point within cycles that it gets more difficult to call market movements as the bottom nest has completed and you have shorter cycles up and down.  The 12TD cycle may have bottomed (or should soon) and turn up.  But this is mid-cycle of the 24TD cycle which should top and turn down.

So these 2 cycles should offset to a large extent with the shorter cycle showing movement over a shorter span.  Also the longer cycles are up.  So there should be a bias to the upside over the next week, but volatility probably continues.

Tue Mar 31 - 11:30 am update  ---  evidence developing that the 12 TD cycle bottom is in place:

Mar 23, 2015 weekly outlook

We should be at or see the top of the 12TD cycle early in the week.  In an up trending market often the top is right translated (right of the center of the cycle).  If that proves to be the case with the market setting new highs (up trending) then the top may be as late as mid week for the 12TD cycle. Though we expect we may have seen the top on Friday, but our other indicators do not indicate that.

Longer cycles (24TD, 45TD and Wall cycles) have also turned up and may start to gain some momentum later in the week giving us a minimum type of pullback (2% or so?).  It could be more than 2% given recent volatility.

Tuesday close: appears Friday was the 12TD top (as suggested as possible)

Mar 16, 2015 weekly outlook

Last week I suggested a  bottoming scenario with the possibility of not much change.  At the end of the week the SnP 500 was down a little over 1% even though we had 200-300 point moves up and down.  The bottoming should be finished early this week,  Then we get the FED meeting and all the pumping that implies by mid week.  This should result in about 6 up days (half the 12TD cycle) as the nested cycles I follow turn up.  Of course it takes time off the bottom for the longer cycles to achieve momentum so upside may be muted as it will be mostly due to the shorter cycle.
