Keene Little : 11/7/2008 3:20:55 PM

While it's certainly possible we'll see an immediate resumption of the decline after today's consolidation, it would look better with a little more sideways consolidation or higher bounce (this is the subjective part of EW analysis, especially inside corrective patterns). The updated SPX 10-min chart shows, in pink, the possibility for another leg up to match this morning's (to create two equal legs up from yesterday's low). That presently gives us an upside target of 942.36 (subject to change if this afternoon's pullback drops further). Link

Jeff Bailey : 11/7/2008 3:19:26 PM

Keene Little : 11/7/2008 3:13:32 PM

Today's price action looks like a correction of the decline from Tuesday but I don't think it's over yet. A sharp pullback now changes the kind of a-b-c bounce pattern and a drop down to about SPX 903 could set up a strong rally leg on Monday (942 target). We've had lots of volatility and I suspect it will still be with us for a while.

If the sideways consolidation in SPX is a b-wave (following the wave A bounce to this morning's high) then we should start a rally leg right from here. The next leg up, wave C, would achieve equality with wave A at 950.34, just shy of the 50% retracement at 953.62. It needs to get up and go now though.

Citigroup (C) $11.70 +1.56% ... Dorsey's PnF chart (will match your QCharts as they don't adjust prices for dividends either) Link

The "reason" C doesn't show as "taking away" from the BPOEX is that yesterday's trade at $11.50 was a 2nd consecutive sell signal. The bullish % only measure the first of a "buy" or a "sell."

Each stock ONLY GETS ONE VOTE.

Yesterday's "triple bottom sell signal" is a POTENTIAL "bear trap" as BPSPX and BPBANK are in "bull phase."

Keene Little : 11/7/2008 1:04:06 PM

The RUT is looking weaker than the others today. It's up less than others and its bounce pattern looks more like a sideways correction. This one is giving me the impression we might see the market consolidate sideways today (rather than a bigger bounce) and then head lower again next week. So while I like the upside today for a day-trade long play I would keep a tight leash on it. If it works, great. If you get stopped out near even, great.

Jane Fox : 11/7/2008 12:48:20 PM

Some economists are predicting the unemployment rate will hit a high of 8.5% or higher before we see it easing. They are also predicting that easing may not happen until 2010. They see the FED lowering rates to 0.50% by December because domestic demand and production are dropping sharply.

Keene Little : 11/7/2008 12:47:12 PM

We've got a clean 3-wave pullback to the broken downtrend line and now it's heading back up. The upside target near SPX 943 remains a good one for now.

Keene Little : 11/7/2008 12:02:09 PM

Figuring out corrective wave counts is the hardest part of EW analysis because the count can morph into many different corrective counts. Many who don't know how to use EW will often accuse followers of just making it up as they go along. I can understand their frustration. Impulsive counts are easy--how hard is it to count one type of 1-2-3-4-5 move? But corrective counts can turn into any one of 11 different types of patterns.

EW analsysis also deals with fractal patterns so an a-b-c bounce could simply make up a larger degree a-wave of what will become a larger 3-wave bounce. And that larger 3-wave bounce could simply be a larger degree a-wave as part of a larger a-b-c bounce, ad infinitum. With that in mind, this SPX 10-min chart shows what I'm watching for what could play out today and into Monday: Link

This morning's 3-wave bounce is labeled wave-a and this morning's pullback is labeled wave-b. This interpretation calls for another sharp leg up in wave-c (might not get it if we chop sideways instead). In dark red I've labeled this larger 3-wave move up (to the 941-944 area) as all of wave-2 and that will be followed by a resumption of the decline.

Or, instead of wave-2 it might be a larger degree a-wave (pink wave A) and that would call for a larger b-wave pullback and then another stronger c-wave up on Monday in order to complete the larger 3-wave bounce for wave-2.

Corrections are the most difficult to handle in EW analysis and while it isn't able to tell us where and when a correction will definitely end, it does give us recognizable patterns and price levels to watch for potential turns. And that provides potential trade setups. I trade the turns based on these setups and when price proves to me that it's not ready to turn I simply exit for a small gain or loss and wait for the next setup.

Keene Little : 11/7/2008 11:33:20 AM

The DOW and SPX have overlapped their opening highs and so we're left with a 3-wave bounce off yesterday's low. That's confirming we're only going to get a bounce and not the start of a new rally leg. That's confirming the probability not the certainty--I've seen plenty of these moves grow into larger impulsive rallies and that's where the intraday EW counts are not always accurate, especially in 1st waves.

The downtrend line from Tuesday, at SPX 930, held so now we'll see if price merely consolidates sideways beneath the trend line before heading lower again or pops above it in a larger corrective bounce. If this morning's 3-wave bounce is wave A and we're now getting a b-wave pullback we could get a strong afternoon rally in wave C (perhaps up to SPX 940-950 area).

I was monitoring Cigna this morning, looking for the break lower after yesterday's close below the 10/30/08 close (not cursor blocks here on all four).

HUM probably more of a "see this" as it relates to where the stock trades right now, than its 10/30/08 low. This needs some investigation, but I'm thinking November option open interest may have something to do with it. Remember that COVERED put we sold at the $25.00 strike?

The bounce off yesterday's low is a 3-wave move so far and now we're getting a little pullback. If the pullback stays above the initial high this morning (SPX 917 at the open) and then heads higher again it will give us a 5-wave advance off yesterday's low.

That kind of impulsive 5-wave move would be followed by a pullback to correct the bounce but it would tell us we'll get another leg up after pulling back (for a larger a-b-c bounce probably). So I'm waiting now to see what the current pullback does.

If we view GOOG as a good proxy for the tech stocks it's currently painting a bearish picture for next week. First the bigger picture with the daily chart. If it makes it all the way down to the bottom of the parallel down-channel that's on the chart we could see GOOG trading at 200 sooner rather than later. That seems a bit steep but when you see the steepening downtrend lines it's telling us the selling is accelerating so it's certainly possible. Daily chart: Link

Barely visible is a sideways triangle pattern that I drew on the chart. That's a continuation pattern and at a minimum has a downside projection of 268. Moving in closer with a 120-min chart shows the triangle pattern and its wave count.

Treasury Department has issued its first report to Congress on the progress of the $700 billion bailout plan. $25Billion has been used to buy shares in 9 banks and 30 more banks have been approved for "funding" however, the report is not revealing how the Government is making a decision to approve a bank or not. It also said companies are still not partaking in longer term lending for it may be just too early to see an easing of this kind of lending or the banks are just too scared to do it.

We are starting to see the stronger banks buy up the weaker banks, which economists pretty much agree is one of the best scenarios.

The bailout plan is still not buying the toxic assets because that has not been worked out yet.

Keene Little : 11/7/2008 9:42:22 AM

Bonds are selling off and equities are rising so we have some rotation going on this morning. I liked the setup for a bounce today and even though the jobs number was worse than expected we can see it's not going to keep equities down. I think a reasonable expectation for a bounce is a 38%-50% retracement of this week's decline. That gives us an upside target zone of SPX 941-954. But if we get a small choppy consolidation instead then it would make it look like we haven't finished the leg down from Tuesday yet.

Previous day lows were support for the futures markets overnight, which was very surprising considering the bad news out at 8:30. I think we can say the unemployment news was already factored into the markets and was probably why the markets fell so hard the last few days. Link

Jane Fox : 11/7/2008 9:29:12 AM

In October the US lost 240,000 jobs and the US unemployment rate jumped to 6.5% from its previous 6.1%, a new 14-year high, surpassing the high seen in the last 2001 recession. Economists had forecast a 200,000 drop so the extra 40,000 jobs lost came as a surprise however, the biggest surprise was the Bureau of Labor revised September's losses up to 284,000 and even Augusts' number up to 127,000 which was an increase of 179,000 more jobs lost than previously announced. For the three months, August, September and October our payrolls have seen a drop of over 650,000 jobs and for the year to date the number is a staggering 1.18 million

The losses were widespread across industries with the brightest spot in health care, which actually added jobs in October and, of course, the Government, which added 23,000 jobs. The industry hit the hardest was Goods- producing with a loss of 132,000.

Total hours worked fell to 0.30% in October from 1.7% in the past year but the average workweek remained steady at 33.60 hours.

The Non-Farm Employment Report released today at 8:30 measures the change in the number of employed people during the previous month, excluding farm workers.

There was some gyration around the jobs report at 8:30 AM (bad number) in both bonds and stocks but bonds are essentially flat and equity futures look to open positive.

Friday's pivot table: Link

The selling over the past two days has been strong with nary a bounce. That makes it harder to see what the wave count might be so I feel a bit like I'm flying in the clouds with no instruments. But with SPX finding support at its 62% retracement of the rally from October 28th and bullish divergences showing up on the short term charts I thought it could be a good place to launch a bounce on Friday. Futures are up tonight so maybe...

There's a lot of similarity between the charts right now and that's good. The message from them is not entirely clear yet but at least they're all in synch. As shown on the SPX 60-min chart, I think we'll see a bounce and then a turn back down (dark red). The bounce could continue but I think that's the lower probability move. Just don't be short if it gets back above Tuesday's high. Link

If we do get the 2nd leg down as depicted it will then be time to determine whether we'll stay trapped in the larger sideways triangle pattern (pink) or continue down to the October 2002 low (768). These two options are also shown on the daily chart: Link . Both of those options point lower and to about the same level; it's just a matter of how quickly it gets there.
