MCM Newsletter – Outlook for Week 1st week of December

The market pushed ever upward last week making a new ATH at 2657. Then it experienced an interesting “flash crash” event on Friday, apparently on some “fake news”, which saw a 45 point drop in less than 1h. After that, it recovered strongly retracing more than 80% of the drop by the close, which shows that buyers are still willing to buy dips.
No change in the weekly cycles, as the up impulses on both indexes are pushing ever higher.

Weekly Cycles

The daily cycles show nicely Friday’s “oops” moment. On ES the drop brought the index very close to the mcm-MA, which provided support yet again. The decline on Thursday brought us closer to a test of the mcm-MA on ES and a direct test on YM. These held as market quickly recovered.

The market made new ATHs last week, which is becoming something rather ordinary. However, it ended lower on a weekly basis, after retreating 30 points from the ATH to Thursday’s low. It seems Thursdays are the most bearish inclined days in November, 2 weeks ago the Thursday saw a similar move. Both those moves were however recovered quickly, most of it even on a daily basis. No apparent change on our EWT scenario which is a terminal pattern currently unwinding 4-5 waves. Market is moving slowly higher with some “hiccups” along the way, but whether we turn after a spike higher or market just falls on its own weight after marginal new highs is hard to say.
No change in the weekly cycles. Directionality is heading up again and getting close to the maximum value.

Weekly Cycles

Same story on the daily cycles. The decline on Thursday brought us closer to a test of the mcm-MA on ES and a direct test on YM. These held as market quickly recovered.

The market moved mostly sideways last week, with a slight upward tilt. But even so, it managed to make a new ATH on Wednesday and finished the week very close to that. This is consistent with out assumption that these are sequences of 4-5 waves, from an EWT perspective, which would mean that it is a terminal pattern. No sign of a top just yet, but any impulsive decline should be viewed as a possible start of a bigger correction, so we reiterate our recommendation that bulls should avoid becoming complacent here.
No change in the weekly cycles. Up impulses continue to extend with no unwind in sight.

Weekly Cycles

Same story on the daily cycles. Up impulses are ongoing and no unwinds just yet, however we do have directionality coming close to the minimum level. That is not bullish, unless the price action manages to push this back up.

The market head-faked the bears last week. After a new ATH on Monday which was immediately sold, it declined 30+ points until the low it hit on Wednesday, but then the market came back strongly and made yet another new ATH on Friday, finishing close to the highs. From an EWT perspective, because this week’s low took out the low from the wedge of 2 weeks ago, these are likely sequences of 4-5 waves. Which would mean we are in a terminal pattern. Indeed there are enough waves now to count this as a complete impulse off the August low and even from the March low, so bulls should avoid being complacent.
The weekly cycles are still in up impulses with no sign of an uwind started.

Weekly Cycles

The same story is painted by the daily cycles. Up impulses are ongoing and no unwinds just yet. In these types of patterns the faster cycles usually offer better clues in regards to a potential top.

The market took another 3 days to finish the wedge we were mentioning, within an annoyingly tight range. Thursday finally saw the resolution of that wedge with a decent pullback to roughly the area where the wedge started. After the market made a low there, bulls got back control with authority. Friday was very bullish, with a 10+ points gap higher and finishing at the highs. From an EWT perspective, the wedge pattern (or ending diagonal) is usually a final wave (wave 5). Considering that the market retreated to its starting point, then made new highs, it likely means that it was a wave 5 of minor degree and we are now in a new wave started at Thursday’s low. On a micro-count, it looks like the market still needs a few 4-5 waves to unwind, so it’s hard to call a top, but in case the market moves lower, Thursday’s low is all important. Overlapping that is likely confirmation that a turn started.
Still no change on the weekly cycles. No unwind in sight (bullish retrace and corresponding ENDs) and now directionality bounced and is heading higher again.

Weekly Cycles

The up impulses on the daily cycles are looking good and (still) look bullish picture. ES came very close to testing the mcm-MA on Thursday’s low before bouncing, showing that it is still providing support (which is also bullish).

The market put on the breaks last week after a very bullish start in October. It still managed to grind higher, but only slightly and this type of behavior resembles that of an EWT wedge pattern. That doesn’t mean this is the only option, as this could be just the market catching its breath before pushing higher once more, but bulls should be careful until this pattern is ruled out.
As usual, no change on the weekly cycles. The up impulses are getting long in the tooth now with no unwind (bullish retrace and corresponding ENDs), which is another reason for bulls to mark some profit and avoid getting complacent.

Weekly Cycles

The daily cycles are in clearly established up impulses as well, which reinforce the (still) bullish picture. The breakout levels (over resistances) are important in the intermediate term, in case the market starts to move lower. Otherwise any signal that these impulses start unwinding would be good clues.

The 1st week of October went to the bulls hands down. They managed a 5 green candles week, and a new ATH each day except Friday. As we have been saying for a while the bull nest off the low at 2418 is favorite and the market is acting as though that is playing out (this wave being an extended 3rd wave). That would mean that the “perfect world” EWT scenario would have us retrace back to the 2490 area after this wave is done and then push again to a new ATH for the final 5th wave of this sequence.
No change on the weekly cycles. The up impulse is ongoing and now also directionality is turning back up.

Weekly Cycles

On the daily cycles we now have new up impulses on both ES and YM. In case the next pullback triggers support in the form of a bullish retrace (BR) reaction to that signal would be important to watch.

New week, new ATH seems to be the current turn of events. After a brief pull-back on Monday, the bulls quickly got back in the game and pushed the market to new highs. They also finished the week in style at the highs. The pullback did not manage to overlap 2480, so from an EWT perspective the bull nest off the low at 2418 is doing well (and still favorite). It now looks like we have put in a 5 wave impulse off the low at 2428, so the (presumed) 3rd wave off the 2418. The bears are running out of near-term options as the apparent bull nest is unfolding and unless they manage a rather direct overlap of 2455, the bulls are still favorites.
No change on the weekly cycles. The up impulse is alive and well and no pullback was big enough to trigger a bullish retrace.

Weekly Cycles

On the daily cycles ES broke above resistance and held a back-test. And the up impulse also confirmed last week by having the mcm-MA also moving above resistance. That is bad news for bears. YM is now directly testing its resistance level so one last (slim) hope for the bears to turn this down in the near term.

The action seemed to slow last week, the market making a minor new high slowly into Wednesday, then pulling back slightly. From an EWT perspective, the bulls are still favorites and if this is indeed setting up as a nested move up, it should finish around 2490 and resume the up move. In the bear camp 2480 would be an important overlap and if they manage that then things might go towards getting the bull nest out of the picture.
No change on the weekly cycles. But the rally didn't go unnoticed, as directionality started to bounce .

Weekly Cycles

On the daily cycles we are currently above the resistance on ES. The up impulse is not confirmed yet, but it will if the market continues to move up. YM triggered resistance at the high so it remains to be seen if it manages to push forward and break that as well or if this will turn things.

The sideways action from two weeks ago was resolved last week in the same way we got used to in the last few years - up. Last week was certainly bullish, with 5 green daily candles and several new ATHs. Although the last 3 days saw the market only grinding up, the declines were very limited, so nothing to cheer on from the bear camp. From an EWT perspective, now that the market made new highs, the favorite is still the bull option, which looks like a nested move up from the low at 2417. Even if that will not turn into a nest and will prove to be only a bigger 3 waver, it still looks like it needs a bit more up. The bear option is that this turns out to be either the flat we were mentioning in last week’s newsletter or that this overlap is not a nest, but an ending diagonal. The latter will gain weight if the market heads down and overlaps 2480 before making 5 clear waves up off 2428.
No change on the weekly cycles. Directionality is still heading lower despite the upside from this week.

Weekly Cycles

The daily cycles are in an interesting place. ES broke above the resistance level and is close to confirming a new up impulse. That would be very bullish if it happens.

Last week was another sideways week. Most of the action was on Tuesday, when also a rather large range (26 points). The other 3 days in the holiday shortened week had very little volatility and didn’t move the price much. From an EWT perspective last week was significant though because Tuesday’s low overlapped the 1st high off the lows. Which means this is either a bullish nest going up or we have a rare double 3 which started at the ATH (the famous w-x-y structure or 3-3-3). I favor the double 3 instead of the flat because the B wave off the lows didn’t retrace 90% (which is required for the flat to be in place). That means the bears still have one option to head lower more immediately, but that move lower will only be 3 waves, so likely not go so much lower (compared to a flat).
No real change on the weekly cycles. Directionality is heading lower still, which could be a sign the market needs more downside action in the short term.

Daily Cycles

The daily cycles seem to add to that conclusion with resistance levels triggered at the 1st of September’s highs. Those levels become important to watch and are likely to be hard for the bulls to get past without a trip lower (and a new support).

Last week was the most bullish one in quite a while. Tuesday put in a low in the o/n on the North Korea missile test news, but from there the bulls did exactly what they needed to. They defended the previous week’s lows and moved up never looking back. They also managed to overlap 2475 which negates the most bearish scenario (a nested sequence on the downside). So while that seals an 3 wave move off the ATH, the bears do have one more option as far as EWT goes. And that is a (yet another) flat. However, there is quite a lot to be done before that takes shape (namely that 2455 is overlapped before this develops into a 5 wave sequence), so the bulls have to be viewed as favorites at this point.
On the weekly cycles, the mcm-MA continued to provide support and market bounced yet again from there. No sign of a support bullish retrace (BR) just yet.

Weekly Cycles

The supports on the daily cycles held nicely and directionality also bounced. Bulls did what they needed to and avoided a potentially very dangerous situation (an impulse down).
