Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - September 24






















The market corrected today in what seems like a W4, which suggest a higher high coming in the next day or two. I don't see any good news that could be used as an excuse to rally but the market has a mind of its own so we'll see.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - September 21





















The market made another all-time high today before pulling back in what should be a W4 wave. Higher highs should be expected next week before any substantial correction and if the market gets any good news then we could even see a run towards the 3000 level. Looking at how China has been rallying from recent lows, maybe there could be some sort of news regarding a trade compromise that could be used to push up the markets.

Have a great weekend!

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - September 20






















The market rallied towards a new all-time high as expected and the possibility of 3000 looks probable. It seems not long ago the index had crossed 2000, a level that was unthinkable back when the bull market started but 3000 probably exceeds even the most optimistic of all predictions made earlier in the decade. I wonder if we will ever see the markets quadruple in 8 years ever again in our lifetimes.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - September 18






















Prices rallied today and came within a few points of all-time highs. Apparently, the markets don't feel the trade war with China is "as bad" so I guess that's enough for bulls to keep charging. This mindset will probably drive prices up past the 3000 mark in the not-too-distant future. However, once reality sets in then it will be interesting to see how the markets will react.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - September 17






















Prices pulled back to text the TA today after word of more tariffs coming to Chinese exports. The move looks like a correction so I continue to expect a challenge to ATH in the near term. If there is any concession by China it will be a reason to rally but I don't really see them changing positions anytime soon. China thinks of terms of decades, multiple decades in fact. Trump's time horizon is a few years at most and I don't think China will be making any meaningful sacrifices for a market that is 19% of their total exports which could potentially affect the other 81% of their exports. Additionally, China's economy is now primarily dependent on services so they are now longer reliant on exports as in the past. If Trump had created a coalition with other countries then they would have had a shot at changing Chinese industrial policy. So there will be a lot of noise on the issue but nothing will be done and in the end the US consumer pays more until manufacturing relocates to Vietnam or Thailand (they won't be relocating here anytime soon despite Trump's promises).

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - September 13






















Prices were able to close above 2900 today and challenge the downtrending TA but the bearish response remains to be seen. If we see a sell off that breaks last wee's low at 2864 then we will see substantially lower lows. But if we get just a correction that respects support levels then we should see the rally continue and eventually all-time highs.

Short Term Trend = Bearish trend being challenged
Medium Term Trend = Bullish
Long Term Trend = Bullish

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - September 11






















The market opened down today but managed to stay above last week's low. Still, the rally looks corrective and the close was below the TA so we might see another bearish leg down in the next session or two. If bulls manage to make a higher high then it might reverse the bearish set up but it doesn't look likely at this point.

Short Term Trend = Bearish
Medium Term Trend = Bullish
