Back on November 13th, 2015, we reported: “The Dow is pulling back on schedule. We do not see a breakout to the upside. This should tread water for a bit, waiting for everything to align. A closing today below 17785 will signal that this is not ready to breakout and a retest of support is likely. Key support lies down at 16500.”
Here is the Weekly Array we published back then. Not that this past week of January 4th, was showing as a Panic Cycle then. Next week was highlighted as the turning point and we had a Directional Change coming into play next week.
The initial support at 16500 has given was and we Elected a Weekly Bearish Reversal today. That report report was written just after the November high was made. We elected the first Weekly Bearish at that time which signaled a test of the next would unfold. Now we are focusing on the monthly support and if that gives way, then we see the Sling Shot move is most likely unfolding.
A Sling Shot differs from a Phase Transition whereas the former you go down FIRST and then swing around and make new highs. This was accomplished from both the 2007 top as well as the 1998 high no less 1987. A Phase Transition is simply an explosion to the upside.
Keep in mind that the MAJORITY must be wrong – ALWAYS. That is the very fuel which drives the markets. The best we have are the Reversals and the Arrays. Opinion fills the air. But opinion is not a forecast. The market will tell us what we face now. Next week is likely to see a lower low for it is the timing target and the Directional Change.
The November high implies a decline for the First Quarter. Everything will hinge now on the Monthly Bearish Reversals. The Global Market Watch finished the year also warning that we had a temporary high. The year-end closing was LOWER and it even closed below the OPEN of 2015. These were warning signs that we would retest support BEFORE making any new highs.
