US Indices at the Edge – Bearish Wave Counts

0 110

US Indices have been going through some tough times for the past two months. It may not be over!

October kicked off with a massive sell-off in stocks and indices worldwide, thus implementing risk-off sentiment or even the “fear” effect caused by a sudden spike in volatility.

This possibility has been explained gradually and multiple times, either with the “New Horizons & Opportunities – Volatility Spike & Trade Ideas” article or live, during the “Mastering Elliott Wave – Revision Webinar” or October’s “Non-Farm Payrolls Live Session.” Further down the line, a Dow Jones 360 view was shared, once the bearish sequence settled.

November is coming to an end, and the main question is: is the bull-market returning or are the bears just getting started?

Technically speaking, Dow Jones, SNP500 and Nasdaq100 are all sitting “at the edge of the cliff.” In other words, stock exchanges would need to bounce and perform an impressive come-back if investors were to snap out of it and regain their buying stance.

However, there are a few factors which are not to be neglected by a calculated mind.

At these very moments, US Indices are either resting on crucial trend-lines or entering a dangerous territory.

  • Sequence / Labels: Impulsive bullish sequence with a probability of an extension in the 3rd sub-wave of a larger degree 3rd main wave.

Dow Jones is currently retesting a significant trend-line on which it previously gained support, leading towards bullish outcomes. A breach of this trend-line could drastically implement a bearish sequence.

  • Breach scenario: Double Three pattern within an Expanding Flat, which could result in a bearish impulse.
  • Support scenario: Running Flat structure, which could result in a bullish impulse and a possible bull-market resumption.

SNP500 is also retesting a very important trend-line, one which previously resulted in bullish swings. A breach of this trend-line could lead towards a “devastating” scenario, in the sense that the bearish momentum could increase rapidly and with continuity.

  • Breach scenario: Double Three pattern within an Expanding Flat, which could result in a bearish impulse.
  • Support scenario: Running Flat structure, which could result in a bullish impulse and a possible bull-market resumption.

Nasdaq100 does not match the US indices mentioned above, in fact, the structure points towards a breach as a possibility, as the strong support and trend-line have been breached already.

In a bearish scenario, NAS100 could retest the previously broken trend-line and would face a “challenging” resistance.

  • August 2018 – November 2018 wave count:
    – Bearish sequence, with a sharp correction in Intermediate (A) (red) and a Running Flat in Intermediate (B) (red).
  • Intermediate (C) (red) could be sustained, with bearish volumes on its side, and a sell-off continuation could send NAS100 towards grounds even lower than the ones seen back in February 2018.
