$SPX - Freefall Imminent

SPX is approaching the target at the red fork outlined in June 4th analysis.  The price pattern has worked well, and the topping process for SPX may take several more days to complete.  

A freefall is imminent.  Downside targets are shown for July.

June 4th chart analysis:

Daily Chart















This is an outstanding setup for UVXY.  The minimum and maximum targets are outlined below.

According to the analysis, few dips are expected for UVXY up to the minimum green target.  The maximum red target could be possible in the most extreme case.

  2. There are 8 different methods of analysis using cycles and patterns in SPX and UVXY that I am using to come to the conclusion of the freefall next. Only a couple of the methods have been shown on the site.

    The SPX price pattern shown on June 4th is one method. Some others are time consuming and rather complex.

    In my work this is a very convincing outcome with so many different methods that I use providing the same result.

  3. SC what levels you look to add to position on UVXY and HVU ?

    1. I've been waiting to see if SPX hits 1372 which is my target. UVXY looks really cheap with practically nothing for downside.

      Delete
  4. SC I noticed in the first chart you target a final low around the end of July. Is that correct because I thought you were expecting a rally from the 3rd week into August?

    Cheers

    1. The June 4th worked worked well, but the timing has been slightly slower which does push out my timing for a bottom. There is a positive cycle 3rd week of July, but now I just think it'll only amount to a small bounce with the real low late July or into the first week of Aug.

  5. Anyone heard that HVU will be reverse split?

  7. Doubled down on HVU at $2.22

  8. The SJ's RLS scenario has been calling for the ultimate high on the SPX to be on July 27th......his RLS method has now been correct 8/8. Check it out, pretty good stuff.

    http://redlinescenario.blogspot.ca/

    Also, he calls for a turn on July 5th so that is the expected next high, down into July 11th, and then up into July 27th.

    Just saying, he could be wrong.

    by the way, sold HVU for $2.24 small daytrade....looking to re-enter

  9. Today has the feeling of a market melt up, which scares me for HVU. Also, I think Thursday will also be bullish right after teh holiday setting up for a big drop on Friday.

    ReplyDelete
  10. SPX finally hit 1371. My target has been 1372. UVXY managed to put in a higher low on this last push for SPX this morning. This is the first sign of a turn.

    ReplyDelete
  11. A slow grind up would be perfect for UVXY over the next few days. The setup is similar to the July/Aug 2011 freefall for SPX. A slow start for a few days, and then acceleration down.

  13. certainly has the feel of VIX futures finding a bottom here...lets see how the rest of the day plays out. Iran and US are heating up in the military showmanship that could play out for real, this could be the factor that drives HVU/UVXY forward along with all the other world issues.

  16. Just quoting Permabear Doomster regarding UVXY:
    "An ugly chart, and the statistical decay is really destroying anyone holding longer than a few days. I see a fair few posters out there who been adding AHEAD of the holiday. That makes zero sense right now, not least if the ECB cut rates, causing a further 1-2% index ramp on Thursday."

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 17 years. Early in my career, I started with more traditional methods of fundamental analysis. CFA, etc... I realized that fundamental analysis will determine where the market is going, but it is not useful for the timing aspect. The price will always reflect the fundamentals in the long run, but there must be a better way to determine the timing.

      Cycles incorporate price AND time.

  27. 1388 - 1390 on the SPX seems likely...retrace of the H&S neckline, 3rd hit of the upper pivot trendline and perfect symetry to that point from the previous breakout.

    1. In my June 4th analysis I had a topping date on June 19th. SPX hit 1363 on that date so when it fell hard I thought it must have fallen short of the 1372 target. Since June 19th, I debated off and on whether it would still reach that level or not. So I didn't get that quite right, but I still think the rest of my plan will now follow through.

  30. people saying $NYAD is indicating a "summer rally".

    but i have a little different view on $NYAD than most people discussing.

    "$NYAD, cumulative NYSE Advance-Decline issues, made a new historical high today.
    last year Jul 7, 2011 $NYAD also made a new historical high with $spx at 1356. that was the high prior to the later black swan crash into Aug 8, 2011."

  33. Hey SC - been awhile since I commented here. I have to agree with your UVXY call. However I think we still have 1-2 days left until a tradeable bottom in UVXY. From that point I load the boat.

    A NYMO reading of 100+ is way off the charts however on the hourly chart, I think we may pause for a bit, maybe paint a doji on Thursday and then commence a downdraft on Friday.

    My thoughts. Stick with the UVXY but seriously I don't know how you hold it for that long.

    I started a starter position short on SPX, silver, and am looking to buy some UVXY next 1-2 trading days.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, agree a few dojis next, then collapse for SPX. UVXY may crawl up slowly with SPX printing sideways dojis.

      I'm planning to hold UVXY for a few weeks because I don't expect it'll dip much on the way up. Most of the time I only hold it for a few days, but there are rare spots when it can be held for longer periods.

  34. Hi SC. I was just breezing through some of the posts on the McVerry report and it seems that out of all the blogs mentioned, you and I seem to be pretty much alone in calling for a top here. It never ceases to amaze me how rallies can cloud the mind of the masses. Gotta admit though, this one took the market up 8% in 6 short days. Pretty impressive alright. Nonetheless, the atmosphere of this fine planet just stinks so bad of euphoria right now that it's barely breathable.

    I must admit, I'd never seen your site before I spotted it tonight at McVerry. So since I don't know your philosophy about links, I won't provide one. Suffice it to say that in an article I posted this afternoon I came to the same conclusion, there is very little upside left. NYMO is definitely issuing a stern warning here, potentially with a pretty nasty decline dead ahead.

    I'd say July 5th we start with a gap lower most likely. If not, then it makes no difference if the decline begins on Friday... the result is going to be the same.

    Happy July 4th :-)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, the strong rally on Friday was another warning. This is standard before plunges. Using an analogy of a toy top, when it starts to lose momentum it wobbles and darts sharply and erratically first. Then once the momentum reaches that critical low level, it just collapses.

      The same thing happens with the market cycles.

      SPX has wobbled up and down erratically in June but is losing momentum rapidly. There may be a few flat doji days next I suspect, and then it'll just collapse out of the blue. I'm expecting SPX to freefall 100 points or more before it can even manage a bounce.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the reply SC. In EWT terms, if we're truly near the end of a wave 2 rebound higher, then the initial collapse you refer to would be just the initial wave 1 lower (of a 5-wave sequence). So the bounce you refer to would pave the way for the wave 3 lower... and 'that one' would be a barn burner. Much bigger than the initial 100 point drop that you (and I) envision.

      I'm going to drop in a little more often and see what you have to say. My apologies once again for only having found your site yesterday. Naturally, you're more than welcome to visit my own from time to time as well. Admittedly though, I haven't posted with much regularity as of late. Anyway, hope you're enjoying the weekend.

  36. SC, since the cycle has been delayed doesn't the decay of UVXY reduce the targets? or does it remain the same?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's the beauty of this setup. The targets stay the same. The reason is that the cycles weren't really delayed, but rather the negative cycle in late June was a minor with the major coming next in July. My interpretation was conservative in timing because I thought the major could have started during the late June negative period. In other words I was being cautious, but this is independant of the target prices.

      Delete
  37. SC what is the potential of hitting the blue mid-line of the daily chart at 1130 or so?

    The reason I ask is that I follow a guy who has an astounding record and he has been saying for months that July would see a rapid and severe decline that could wipe 40% off the S@P.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, I don't believe so. This is a similar setup as last summer July 2011, but the cycles I use are not nearly as negative this July. That time it fell 245 SPX points, and this time 130 or so is what I have estimated.

      The other important point is that August and part of Sept look positive, but there is another surprise coming later this year.... I'll explain that later in detail.

    1. $10's. A slow steady grind up for UVXY to start would be perfect. Then next week it should start to accelerate up. I don't plan to trade much or at all because I don't expect many dips for it on the way up.

  47. S&P futures topped this morning. UVXY bottomed Tues. I don't have high expectations for the next few days. SPX may just flatten off, print a few dojis.

    Starting Fri/Monday July 9th right into July 19th the cycle analysis turns very negative. I think SPX can drop 100 or more during that time frame.

    4. its just the title sounds apocalyptic .. "Freefall Imminent "

      per ZZ we could see higher levels in the fall, your work does not exclude that possibility (14+ on the SnP)?

      If so then one has to be really careful shorting this thing, as the bounce would have to be wild ... to get back up 200pts in such short time. These leveraged vehicles are a 100% suicide for average Joe, unless you have a HFT box executing your trades.

    5. I defined it as a freefall because I think that is a good description for what it will look like - meaning few bounces on the way down.

  64. SC - I'm still with you on this trade...but if the S&P consolidates and surges to the 1400 area.....it's gonna put us into August and the next positive cycle in your crystal ball. Hopefully tomorrow or Monday we'll see the S&P break support through 1348......

  68. Hi SC:

    If we surge higher tomorrow and make a new low in UVXY -- are you still going to be confident?

    I have a position in UVXY and TZA, so believe me, I would like to see the markets go lower; however, I've been significantly burned holding these bastards when the market keeps chugging higher as I *hope* for an eventual reversal, but a slow grind higher can leave you broke holding these things.

    I sincerely hope we drop tomorrow, but to not have a stop loss/exit plan can be taxing with these vehicles.

    Thanks for your free analysis.

  69. I haven't given up either. Thanks for all your hard work SC. If these cycles play out I suggest you start your own offical site and not just a blog.

    The analysts that I usually follow initially thought we were headed lower last week but based on that action they remain nuetral with an upside bias, however, they also have predicted more downside taking out the lows of this year...

    What if we grind higher next week...will u exit UXVY?

    1. In this case I don't believe there will be any issues why I would exit UVXY. If there ever was a reason I would not hesitate to say so immediately, and stop out on the trade.

      The bearish case looks very solid here.

  70. Lots of angst today. When is there ever a guarantee with markets/trading? My favorite fee service analyst, Tom McClellan, who is #1 timer again and again, and who is bullish(and correct) most of the time, sees a cycle turn down between July 6-11, and now prefers the front end of those dates due to his own oscillators being overbought. It's all about stacking the info. and drawing conclusions...and we can still be wrong. I'm sticking with Tom and SC...

  72. VIX future is up almost 5% and HVU is also up 5%? am I missing something here?

    Thanks

    1. Generally speaking, I find that ETF's that play off VIX tend to catch up with it typically at the last hour of trading if they are not tracking to it as expected. So I would not worry about it too much.

    2. It's trading close to 1x this morning. No wonder there are lawsuits over these ripoffs.

    3. No, I don't understand why you guys don't pay attention to VIX futures after the market closes...it clearly dropped yesterday after hours and when you consider that, as well as the decay since HVU rebalances DAILY and the contango....then you get why this is only up 3.7% right now.....

  74. SC...Do you have some idea on the NDX July targets? Apple's domination makes it a challenge to line up with the SPX charts you provided.

    1. For NDX it'll be easier to determine exact targets later in the month. For now an estimate would be NDX 2410 to 2450 range.

  75. This is not the vix action you want to see at the beginning of a market turn. I agree with SS76

    ReplyDelete
  76. S&P below first support of 1357, needs to go below 1348. EW folks are being very cautious now as a decline through 1348 would invalidate bullish counts.

    SC - your plan in motion........

    ReplyDelete
  77. There is simply no fear out there. That can change in a heartbeat, however the jobs number was not so bad that the market would tank on it, and it was bad enough that QE is very much on the table.....so I think that at least for the moment, this market is going to reverse and that is why I bought HVI at $9.38. At least for the short term, figure HVU could be a buy next week, but won't hold it overnight, that never seems to pay off and when it does, its minimal.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Concur with likely reversal to the 1400 area, but decline will come after that if so. I don.t see QE coming until justified, and it won't be justified until the market suffers a decline to at least the low 1200's. It appeared that this was lining up for the Aug 1 Fed Mtg.....but the timing is a bit elongated now. You're right, volume is not as expected with a turn, but the volume on the bullish side has not been rally-huge either....probably because of holiday week....so movements in the market may not be predictive in nature until the volume picks up next week. Even if the market does continue up, it is acting as oif close to top if not already topped...relatively speaking......

  81. Well the cycle analyst I follow is calling for a collapse into August of up to 40% with a minimum of S@P 1140 and looking at the weekly bearish pattern on the DOW and SP he may well be right

  82. It's like the VIX is waiting to see if the morning SPX drop will stick before it reacts.
    If SPX does hold it's lows, I expect the VIX to react accordingly by eod.

    2. I think the fear happens in a few stages. First fear trade is to cash...to protect profits. After realization of what's happening, next stage is fear trade into metals. The 2008 decline seemed to follow this. ....doesn't mean that's always the case either.....:-)

  87. SC,

    Amazing how VIX future is not reacting...can you check how VIX cash is behaving? it is very possible that you see VIX cash shooting higher but not future, and that is the real game here..people are still hoping for QE3 in future and that is the reason VIX future is not going wild...

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    1. It often starts slowly like this, then when people realize this isn't just another small dip, the VIX will explode up.

  88. Thanks again for all your work SC. It seems your analysis is bang on so far. Lets see if we break the lower pivot trendline next week.

    What amazes me is how well cycles work (if calculated properly) and how the news initiates the cycles. This tells me that the markets are choreographed. Someone/group out there plans these moves in the market who must also own the media or have significant influence over the media to ensure that the markets stay on track...imo.

  89. Have no fear, the central banks are here...this mindset has been the status quo for 3+ years now. Will it ever change? Mark Faber says NO.

    ReplyDelete
  90. The reason there is no fear is because the majority, or as I like to call them sheeple, are brain washed by the media to think this is a bear trap and that they should buy the dip. So, until the previous lower high is broken sheeple will continue buying with no fear.

    1. It also might be suggesting that the market trades sideways down here for a little while before heading lower. The VIX was leading yesterday so it's taking a breather. No problem.

I also have another theory I read on danerics blog that I am going to investigate and if after my review it jives, i'll share it.

    2. Stockboom, SC's plan for the SPX is still in tact however I think it goes up again first. However in terms of HVU and UVXY, I don't believe his targets will come close but ya never know. He is right that once it gains momentum, it is rapid and big movements. Problem is that the SPX at 1245 I don't believe gets HVU anywhere near $7. $4.50 at BEST. Now, noticed that at 4pm the VIX futures were down -0.10. Now they are down -0.20, and in about 15 min we'll know where it settles and that will explain HVU's opening price on Monday.

    1. That is a sign of excessive complacency. Nothing is more bearish than no fear with the market dropping. Until there is fear there is no bottom for the market.

      SPX closed solidly down, and the cycles are much more negative next week.

    Other problem is USD is also very strong and market came back and gained almost 50% of their loss today...VIX future dropped another 30 cents after market close,

    SS76, I agree monday VIX will show 5% but HVU will gain may be 5 cents! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  102. Folks,

    This is the 5th minior wave up for SnP. After that, 5 waves down. The EW folks estimate that the 5 down will be swift. The size of the last wave up tonight/Sunday Night/Monday is very vague......but with the decreased volume I expect it will not be too big. Hang in there ... it's coming. I do concur that maybe I should have sat on my cash until now to minimize effects of contango/leakage........a few learning points....but SC has been accurate thus far and I expect we will see his plan in full force soon. I know - preaching to the choir - but words help when emotions are challenged. Hope you all ahve a great weekend! Thanks SC!!

  104. Hi SC,
    SP is down, but no fear because investors are thinking of QE3 should come out at the end of July. the closer to the end of July, the easier for investors being happier. so I'm afraid, when market is going down next week, investors will be happier. they'll see QE3 soon. How UVXY gets up. looks so weird.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Hi SC,
    How investors can feel fear? after auguster 1st, FED does issue QE3, there must be strong fear in market. three weeks to go. so no matter good or bad data comes out, UVXY won't go up too much. I'm afraid UVXY will get reverse split before Auguster. SC, do you think so? Than you.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hang in there Shing! Last time they reverse split UVXY at $5.65 (or thereabouts)....while the ETF managers can do what they want, I don't think we'll see it that low on this cycle. But you are right, we're cutting it very close. I'm sure SC will have some words fo you as well.
