$SPX - Sharp Rally Phase and VIX

The Deja Vu Cycle suggests a final spike up for SPX could occur soon to complete the sharp rally phase from the November low. 

The yellow arrow is shown to compare SPX with the location in the bigger picture Deja Vu Cycle.

VIX has been making higher highs since August.  VIX briefly traded above October/November levels on Friday.  In contrast, SPX is at much higher levels than the 1343 SPX November low. 

The behaviour of the VIX is further evidence to support the Deja Vu Cycle.  There was no fear in November during the gradual decline phase for SPX, but now fear is rising with SPX.

UVXY has been testing the lower fork and reached the green line on Friday.  UVXY is still within the downtrending fork.   

60min Chart















VIX popped on Friday, but then settled into the close. 

More importantly, notice that VIX bottomed in August, and has been making higher highs and higher lows since that time. 

VIX briefly traded above October/November levels on Friday with SPX closing almost 90 points higher than the November low for SPX.

    1. The model is quite bullish for SPX short term. With a spike up in SPX, UVXY could break below that lower fork line. So low teens looks possible during the next week or so.

    1. Merry Christmas Kevin!

      The model is quite bullish short term. 1490 SPX may be possible. It should spike up soon.

      It is also important to emphasize that this is an expensive market. A spike up in SPX would finish the rally from November. Down afterwards.

    1. SPX 1422 may hold, but also possible that it dips and tests 1415 to 1420 next support.

  6. Hi SC do you feel this drop in the markets today is a buy dip around the 1410 area before we push higher into late Dec early Jan?

    Thanks

  7. I believe so Muzz. I've been waiting, and went moderately long at 1410 SPX.

    1. Short term looks quite bullish according to my model. In the best case 1480 to 1490 may be possible short term!

  8. You are welcome Muzz!

    Due to my bigger picture views I am picky in this market with long trades. However, I am confident on this short term setup for the bullish case.

  9. I think it'll firm up for a few days then spike up strongly.

  10. In addition to the cycles, there is strength in Crude, and that is a "tell" for the short term bullish case imo.

  11. Anyone here have TD waterhouse account? I used to get flat rate of 9.99 till December 15th and suddenly they changed to regular rate of $ 29.99; I was under impression that since I have TD mortgage I am getting 9.99; or that's what I been told...but today when I called them they said it is not true!

    Can anyone confirm if you have mortgage you get 9.99 flat rate?

    Thanks

  12. Now that UVXY above upper fork line and SPX below 1415 support you still looking for 1480 in near term ? I can see oversold bounce soon to 1422 , but no where near 1480 .Then sharply lower in January.

    ReplyDelete
  13. As long as SPX holds near the current support levels around 1400, it can bounce well. 1460's and possibly higher.

    If SPX comes down some more then the bounce would not take it as high 1430 to 1440.

    1. I think it should hold around this level.

  15. you said 1422 support, 1415-20 support then 1410 support, then 1400 support.. you kept lowering your support until it was met nice job.

  16. I've been waiting for SPX to settle, and went long today at 1410 for a short term trade only.

    Already profitable, and I think that a short term positive cycle has just started. This one should be powerful as shown on the Deja Vu cycle with the large finishing candle of the sharp rally phase.

    SPX can see 1467 or better in a week or so.
