Wednesday update

SHORT TERM: gap down opening, DOW -219

The SPX rallied 1.2% the first two days of the week. Then overnight Tuesday, it was reported the US was preparing an additional $200B in tariffs against China. Naturally China stated they would retaliate. ES futures dropped immediately and remained substantially lower heading into Wednesday’s open. Asian markets dropped 0.8% overnight, and European markets lost 1.4%. The SPX gapped down to 2776 at the open, closed at 2794 yesterday, rallied to 2786, then headed lower. The low for the day was SPX 2771 just past 2pm. Then the market bounced to close at SPX 2774.

While perusing the charts yesterday we noticed a very clean rising diagonal in the NYSE from the April downtrend low. Then a large pullback during June. Followed by a rally into early July: https://bit.ly/2ubPmvR. This pattern could explain the choppiness in the SPX/DOW over the past few months. Diagonals are created by three wave advances, in an overall contracting five wave pattern. We carried the same leading diagonal pattern onto the DOW charts, even though the ‘e’ wave has some overshoot: https://bit.ly/2KXDjfB. When you add in the two counts posted on the SPX charts, bulls and bears have plenty to choose from. Overall, two of three counts suggest higher prices are ahead for this month. When one adds in the impulsive NDX/NAZ/R2K patterns, and new highs in market breadth, probabilities suggest this April uptrend will continue. A rally above SPX 2802 would eliminate the Int. wave iv triangle posted on the SPX daily chart too. Good luck, and best to your trading!

MEDIUM TERM: uptrend still underway

LONG TERM: uptrend

    Sorry to discuss politics but people in the Uk are protesting about Trump. Yet when the king of Saudi Arabia visits UK, not a single protest. Yet these people are the intelligent once not influenced by the media.

    Makes me sick.

    • Imagine UK prime minister invited to USA. During national TV coverage admonish Trump over his immigration and trade policy. THEN add insult to injury by enduring the Democratic opponent as the next president. How about threatening NATO that US will leave. Germany for pipeline to Russia and distorting reliance from 9 percent to 70. Telling May if she has a soft Brexit the USA will not have a trade deal with UK. Endorsed Boris Johnson as the next prime minister as they stand side by side on national TV press conference. Slamming EU with auto tariffs next week. Pretending he didn’t get the memo on 12 additional indictments of Russian in hacking of our election. Finding out that a US CONGESSIONAL election individual was also involved in receiving dirt on their opponent thru Russian hacker Lucifer 2.0, same as TRUMPs source.

      Makes you sick, don’t it? But you haven’t seen nothin yet! Biggest Banana Republic in histroy is the US of A today! I dare anyone to dispute this. If you want I can add about 100 more known ethics, corruption, moral violations. Trump supporters live under a rock or have as much ethics, common sense, morals, empathy as a rock. Where are the dozen children 5 and under? GONE FOREVER! Deported mothers and declared the issue dead.

      Makes ya kinda sick, don’t it?

        I watched the press conference and he didn’t do a bad job at diffusing the questions which were deliberately provocative to be fair, not sure what you’d have had him say instead. Boris Johnson is the same party as May, they just disagree on what should happen with Brexit. Nobody here wants a soft Brexit, so the current plan is very unpopular. People either want to stay in the EU or they want to leave properly and this is neither. Trump had picked up on that but he also wanted to be seen to back the government too. He’s obviously pro Brexit as he doesn’t like dealing with the bureaucracy of the EU.

        As for the protesters, most of them have no clue what they’re even protesting for. The silent majority here don’t care who your President is or what he’s doing within reason. He probably wouldn’t be electable in the UK and if he were, he’d struggle under our political system to do anything as he’s too divisive to command a majority in the House of Commons on most issues so wouldn’t last very long. But for the most part people respect him as the US head of state and want to do a trade deal with him

            The first video you’ve posted appears to be pre press conference, and it’s in the press conference where he pulled back on some of the things he’d already said as May convinced him that post Brexit under her plan we’ll still be able to control our own trade.

            Second video is irrelevant really.. yeah there were thousands of protesters. But the population is 65 million and those people there don’t represent the majority view. Most of them are probably students with nothing better to do

          • WHERE ARE THE CHILDREN! Try to whitewash this one. How about PROOF of a congressional candidate openly asking the Russian in August of 2016 to get dirt on their opponent. Man the whole GOP must be in on this and from the beginning. Of course Kushner’s 5 revisions of security clearance missing Russian contacts each time, Sessions got caught lying to the GOP and got a hand shake for it. House committee allowed people to refuse to answer questions. on and on we go and for some strange reason logic and connecting dots seem to be a big problem here. Let me spell it out in plain language. TODAY the GOP is complicit with TREASON! TODAY they are doing everything to lie about the Russian Invasion and placing blame on hard working government career people. SHAME ON US ALL to accept this in the USA. Your lack of empathy and refusal to announce the truth of the situation speaks volumes.

            TRUMP lies on a daily basis. He attacks heads of state, nations, tries to incite, influence elections OUTSIDE our country, is ruthless and inhumane with his dictatorial policies. Hello, these are FACTS. He is no different than Putin. In fact he is the Putin in America. Even after a year of facts you somehow compartmentlike his disgusting treasonous behavior as acceptable. After the pushback against his own administration when he demanded to make it clear he saw the KKK and Nazi’s as the same as the other marchers. NO ambiguity there. he announced then and there he was a racist. if you were too obtuse to see it then perhaps his POLICIES would make you aware. My only conclusion is that 40 percent of American are racists, fear anyone that is different, and accepts brutal behavior as somehow justified.

            TRUMPS ratings were the SAME before and after the incident with the 3,000 non-human creatures. I am ashamed. Yes LONDON protests simply because they have nothing other to do. Yes this nation in the millions protest for no reason. Your interpretation of events is the same as the Nazi’s used as they exterminated millions. We today are no different. We just proved it with the uncaring nature of horrendous treatment of poor immigrants. Separating FOREVER infants from their mothers because the had the audacity to seek a better life.

            DISCUSS THIS ONE ISSUE OR MOVE ON, “The Children”. If you refuse to I refuse to listen to your anesthetic rational. Trump will be indicted and the gutless complicit GOP will look at their constituents and the polling suggesting they still love Trump and allow him to stay as President till they are forced by becoming a minority. We are an immoral desensitized selfish nation already. Endorsing Moore wasn’t YOUR litmus test? Tearing babies from mothers? calling McCain as less than worthy because he got himself captured? Treating woman like slaves at his bidding? Endorsing the KKK and Nazi’s? Trump himself epitomizes all that is disgusting in a person. Even the head of FOC NEWS broke down for a moment and placed ONE MILLION to the anti-defamation league. he quickly recovered his immorality by banning this report be placed on any pro-trump site. Everything stated is F-A-C-T. Obviously my view of immoral is different that yours.

      • Do unto others…. Anytime you hear a policy, executive order, political platform, government ruling place yourself as if you are the recipient of that action. An example: Imagine living in an environment of poverty, violence and corruption. Taking your toddler for months trying to cross the border where you can find a better life. Finding out the status for all illegal immigrants is the same, no asylum and prosecuting to fullest extent of law with your child permanently taken away. Now a normal person would empathize but might still decide no illegals allowed in unless they have a real reason for fearing their lives if they return. So you capture them, process, determine a small percentage is allowed to stay and release the rest back across the border. INSTEAD TRUMP vilifies them, treats them as murderers and subhuman. You gladly accept this view? no backlash, no empathetic cringe, no thoughts that it is the harshest punishment for being poor in a poor country. By all means don’t look at all the government stats on how productive immigrants are to or society and focus on a rape case or a gang. How do people think this way without ever letting in a little light?

        This really has nothing to do with the market other than proof that we are in sync with peaks in economic blow off as our moral compass points straight down. All societies are in line at extremes between economic euphoria and cultural and moral degradation. I know my words have little meaning and most think I am way over the top but tell me why history has always validated my claims as each generation experiencing what the prior one couldn’t teach us. That’s why it happens as the next generation starts fresh on the same path.

London is massively disconnected from the rest of the UK.

      No need to feel sick to your stomach. Negative emotions are a product of not meeting expectations. King of Saudi Arabia vs. President of the United States: Brits (and the world) have a certain expectation of who each is or ought to be and what each (ought to) stand for. In the case of President Trump, people who came out to protect felt he didn’t meet their expectations of a US president so they came out to protest. In the case of the King of Saudi Arabia, people felt his policies/conduct matched their expectations of him so people did not come out to protest.

      So in the case of King of Saudi Arabia vs. President of the United States, a bigger protest crowd is just a reflection of a bigger disappointment evaluated against respective expectations, not a reflection of perceived worse badness.

IF we come down, I’ll be looking for a swing position to the upside.or if we go up, I’ll be looking for a swing position to the upside – the outcome is the same for me. UPSIDE. Just looking for entry.
