XIV: Before/After - Targets Reached!

XIV has reached the targets set out in July analysis.  A low should be near with a large bounce ahead into September.

The orange channel is clearly broken, but overall the XIV chart is still quite strong.  Volatility is likely to increase in the months ahead.     

Daily Chart:

















Before:

July 16, 2017:

"XIV has been consolidating sideways, and the sideways move appears to be over or nearly so.  XIV is approaching long term resistance and volatility is likely to increase dramatically in the months ahead.

However, XIV is still trading within the orange channel, and a test of the upper channel may be possible before the channel breaks."

  2. Do you still see the market topping out in fall, or is this just a spike in vol for you?

  4. SC, based on the strong S&P and XIV bounce, where do you see SPX topping out, or has it already? Also, does XIV have any chance of going back to the highs again? thx

    1. Yes, SPX still should see a higher high. Marginal upside for SPX though. XIV is trading far more aggressively, and can trade much higher.

  6. Thankfully we are transitioning into faster market. We'll take the moves one step at a time. This market can be traded from either a bullish standpoint or bearish, or ideally the best is both.

    1. Well are you bullish or are you bearish at this point I think you're bullish correct your thoughts

    2. I am bullish short term.

    3. You're foolish until September turn date correct and then you're bearish after that

    4. Yes and no. Overall yes bullish into September. Later this month I think one more drop is possible. A capitulation. I think short term XIV up into the $80's again. Drop possible and up to $88 target.

  10. It may be choppy next, and may see some weakness around the end of the month. Even so still expect higher prices for XIV in September.

    2. Ideally yes, a drop around the end of August looks possible followed by upside into mid-September.

  17. Mahendra sent out a free update (I'm not a paid subscriber to his services) on Tues, Aug 22nd. In it he stated that the stock market would be positive on Tuesday and up to mid-Wednesday (Aug 23rd) and that the market would turn very negative from late Wednesday (Aug 23rd) and Thursday (Aug 24th) onward.

    Mahendra wrote and emailed that update when the S&P September contract was trading around 2448 and the NASDAQ was around 5870.

    Mahendra is expecting a 25% to 30% correction in the U.S. stock market. Japan, the European market and emerging markets will fall as well but not as much as the U.S. stock market.

    Regarding UVXY, Mahendra stated in this recent update that the price will not go below $28.45 and it will go as high as $87.00 and soon UVXY will go as high as $181.00 but he gave no specific time frame for those prices.

  21. Drop happening after hours. If XIV holds a higher low on this move it'll test $100 mid-september.

  23. Louis, I don't know if the stock market will decline 30% either but I think it will fall a lot more than just 5%.

    I follow Raymond Merriman's analysis who uses market cycles, technical analysis and financial astrology. I am a paid subscriber of his services.

    According to Merriman, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has a 50 week cycle which when measured from cycle low to cycle low occurs within a range of 34 to 67 weeks 90% of the time.

    August 28th to September 1st is the 61st week of the Dow's 50 week cycle. The 50 week cycle low is due no later than mid-October 2017. Time is rapidly running out!! The 50 week cycle low should occur very soon – probably in the next few weeks anyway.

    Also, according to Merriman, there is also a 23 month cycle low due sometime between now and December 2017. It's highly probable that the 50 week cycle low will culminate with the 23 month cycle low. This won't be a measly 4% to 5% stock market pullback so everyone can buy the dips. It's going to be a little more significant than that.

    1. Everything going according to plan. I'm bullish into September. Next turn date September 12th. XIV might see a small wobble around $85, but once that clears $100 can come quickly.

    3. No I'm expecting a high around September 12th and weakness after that into the end of the month.

    1. The model shows when the big move is coming for the bears. It's important to wait for the optimal timing to catch it. One move at a time.

      Delete
    2. Is 9/12 the day you think bears start to take control?

      Delete
    3. I do have the turn date on the 12th give or take. Second half of September bearish.
