Currencies Review – H1 2019

January/February’s annual report began by forecasting US$ dollar strength, currency weakness across-the-board. This was based upon the incomplete a-b-c zig zag advance in the US$ dollar index from its Feb.’18 low of 88.26. Upside targets to complete minor wave c. were towards 102.79+/- and six-months on, that’s still the current outlook.

The last several months has seen a gradual push higher for the dollar, but each time it has attempted to break to a higher-high, it has fallen back inside the preceding trading range. But importantly, it has produced higher-lows together with higher-highs which maintains wave c.’s five wave impulse uptrend. We can look back over the first-half of the year and say that nothing too much has developed, but that’s certainly not the case going forward, for the next 6-month period.

Currencies – Key Drivers/Events for H2 2019

The most important event gripping the headlines revolves around expectations of a mild global recession. The latest Global Purchase Managers’ Index (PMI) from JP Morgan/IHS Markit shows economic activity continuing to oscillate towards a 3-year low.

That fact has not gone amiss with central banks. The European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve have both reiterated their commitment to ease back on monetary tightening policies with interest rate cuts, as necessary. Investors are watching how the trade negotiations are developing between the U.S. and China, but also Europe as the U.S. threatens to slap tariffs on European car imports.

Significance of the Inflation-Pop

From an Elliott Wave perspective, the slowdown in economic activity is expected to be simply a temporary dip within the larger ‘INFLATION-POP’ event. The ‘inflation-pop’ is the second event within the multi-decennial ‘SHOCK-POP-DROP’ deflationary cycle. The ‘inflation-pop’ began lifting asset prices higher following the end of the 2007-09 financial-crisis. Central banks added monetary liquidity that forced sharp asset price rises in the following years to this day.

Shock-Pop-Drop

The Shock-Pop-Drop can be visualized as an Elliott Wave expanding flat pattern, A-B-C – the ‘Inflation-Pop’ is simply wave B, itself unfolding in an upward direction as a primary degree zig zag pattern, A-B-C. Primary wave A represents the way asset values trended higher from the financial-crisis lows but ending into the peak in early-2011. Wave B then declined afterwards, but a retracement of wave A’s preceding advance – by necessity, wave B’s retracement is only a partial regression so it must end above the 2009 lows of wave A.

If you take a look at the JP Morgan/IHS Markit global PMI and the related Manufacturing/Services & Trade chart (see above), you’ll see the primary degree zig zag in upward progress from the 2009 lows. The peaks in 2010/11 complete primary wave A but wave B is still engaged to the downside, but is attempting to complete before year-end 2019. Levels might break slightly below the initial lows of 2013, but not too far – but afterwards, turning higher to begin primary wave C’s advance.

From this we can discern that the global economy will tick lower through H2-2019 into year-end, which is expected to have the effect of pushing the US$ dollar higher during the same period. Why is that? Mainly because a dip in the economies will prompt safe-haven buying of the US$ dollar, especially since Elliott Wave analysis expects U.S. stock markets to undergo a -11% per cent correction into year-end. But also because of interest rate differentials – the Euro currency is attracts negative interest rates, as does the Yen. That’s a huge premium for the US$ dollar.

EW-Forecasts H2 2019


For more detailed analysis, please view the video/report

  • The US$ dollar index is set to accelerate higher through the remainder of this year
  • Corresponding declines forecast for G8 currencies
  • Asian currencies are expected to stage overall declines during H2 2019. The Asian Dollar Index (ADXY) is vulnerable to a decline of -4.5%
  • All emerging market and commodity related currencies are forecast weakening against the US$ dollar during H2 2019 but some of the stronger currencies will simply undergo corrective retracements
  • Bitcoin

    Crypto Currencies like Bitcoin have trended exponentially higher since ending 4th wave corrective lows last December. Our latest Elliott Wave analysis updates the medium-term outlook, Bitcoin’s uptrend over the next several years. Amazingly, it projects an uptrend towards some astonishingly high levels!! – this is going to be quite a journey!

    Interest Rates Review – H1 2019

    The year began with US30yr yields at 3.000% per cent, US10yr at 2.700% per cent and forecasts down to 2.690+/- and 2.075+/-. That seemed enough to depict a counter-trend correction unfolding from the late-2018 highs. Yields have since traded even lower, to 2.465% and 1.939% but they’re still counter-trend declines!

    The big clues on interest rate direction comes from the fact that the 60-year cycle in AAA Corporate Bond Yields is very rhythmic, oscillating at 30 to 35-year sub-intervals from peak-to-trough-to-peak etc. The last cyclical peak occurred back in 1981 – thirty-five years later, the next cycle-trough bottomed in July 2016, at least for the long-end yields. It would take a phenomenal feat for interest rates to break back below those lows during 2019’s declines because the next 30-35 year cycle is already exerting its influence higher.

    Interest Rates – Key Drivers/Events for H2 2019

    This year’s corrective declines in underlying U.S. and European interest rates are expected to continue even lower than original downside targets. A global downturn in economies is being exacerbated by U.S. President Trump’s trade war with China and its allies, Japan, Europe, Canada and Mexico.

    The IMF has just published its latest World Economic Outlook paper – it summarises ‘global growth forecast at 3.2% per cent in 2019, picking up to 3.5% per cent in 2020 (0.1 percentage point lower than in the April WEO projections for both years). GDP releases so far this year, together with generally softening inflation, point to weaker-than-anticipated global activity’. It highlights weak final demand, soft global trade and muted inflationary pressures.

    EW-Forecast Review – H1 2019

    The Annual 2019 report published last February (2019) highlighted several main points. Base Metals were set to continue 2nd wave corrective downswings that began almost a year earlier, from the Jan.’18 highs. Copper, Aluminium, Lead and Zinc were all engaged in wave (2) downswings although only at the half-way stage. As barometers of the global economy, this was indicating a period when inflationary pressures that were beginning to build higher for the first time in a decade through 2016 were easing back for a while.

    So far this year, benchmark Copper rallied higher into a correction from December ‘18’s low of 5725 ending into the April high of 6608. But prices have since resumed wave (2)’s downswing with a price decline towards 5740. And there’s more to come before year-end! Note the timing correlation with U.S. stock markets.

    The same pattern development is unfolding in the other Base Metals, Aluminium, Lead, Zinc and Nickel.

    The Next 6 Months?

    The latest Elliott Wave patterns indicate some short-term upside potential but targets are limited. Especially, since analysis of the US$ dollar indicates the currency will significantly trend higher into year-end. The downside targets for Copper, Aluminium, Lead and Zinc vary, the smallest is -12% per cent, the largest is -19% per cent.

    Base Metal Miners

    The trade war initiated by U.S. President Trump with China continued through the first-half of this year but this had little impact for the equity markets. January/February’s forecasts for the benchmark XME Metals & Mining index included an initial downswing from 28.21 to targets of 24.12+/-, ending the entire correction from 2018’s high of 39.62. The actual low traded in late-May to 24.25!! Prices have since trended higher to 28.00. This action was typical for several mining stocks. But one aspect which is recurring across those miners that are directly connected to the Copper sector is that more downside potential exists for the remains 6-month period of 2019.

    Precious Metals

    Over the last several years, two medium-term wave counts/scenarios exist for precious metals, one super-bullish, the other bearish. When the upside rallies occurred from the grand ‘Re-Synchronisation’ lows of 2016, gold advances by +30% per cent whilst some gold mining stocks rallied by +300% per cent, a 1:10 ratio. This level of underperformance in the underlying bullion price of gold and silver means there’s no longer a certainty they will undergo a sustained uptrend to new record highs during the final stages of the ‘Inflation-Pop’. Rather, they will participate in the next advances, but unfolding into corrective patterns, ending below those current historical highs of April/August 2011. Despite this, the mid-year report updates both scenarios.

    Meanwhile, gold has attracted attention recently, since breaking above the 2016 high of 1375.27 but over the next 6-month period, Elliott Wave analysis predicts an initial extension higher, above 1500.00+/- but then a severe counter-trend downswing unfolding into year-end.

    Silver has prolonged its 2016 downswing from 21.14 into last September’s (2018’s) low of 13.93 and whilst it is possible to construct an intermediate-term bullish count from this low, and the slightly lower-low of 13.89 traded last November, the following rally into February’s high of 16.22 and its subsequent decline into the late-May low of 14.29 is more leaning towards the confirmation that 2016’s double zig zag pattern is extending into a triple zig zag.

    Platinum is positively correlated to silver and is also extending its decennial A-B-C zig zag pattern unfolding lower from historical highs traded back in March ’08 when it was at 2304.00. Downside targets for wave C require a break below wave A’s low of 732.50.

    Palladium has been one of the star outperformers since bottoming in Jan.’16 at 450.67 and price rises have continued until reaching a high last March at 1624.33. This began a counter-trend 4th wave correction beginning with a decline of -22% per cent but all of this has since been recovered with a current reattempt of the highs. But another downswing is expected to get underway soon.

    Precious Metal Miners

    These are expected to outperform the underlying bullion price in the next phase of the ‘Inflation-Pop’ uptrend, due to resume later this year. But as bullion gold, silver, platinum, even palladium pull lower into year-end, so does a pause occur in the mining stocks.

    In the shorter-term, further gains are expected in July/August but then turning lower afterwards to begin a correction. This report examines how deep those corrections can unfold.

    Several precious metal mining stocks like Newmont Mining project uptrends towards 166.00+/- over the next several years (currently 38.30) although some form of correction is seen unfolding from current shorter-term upside targets. Other miners including Barrick Gold, Agnico-Eagle Mines, AngloGold Ashanti each have a similar wave count/structure to the GDX.

    Commodities – Energy

    There’s a certain fascination with the energy contracts of Crude & Brent oil because their price declines from the 2011 highs which coincided with Base/Precious Metal interim peaks within the ‘Inflation-Pop’ uptrend ultimately broke below the financial-crisis lows, unlike their commodity counterparts.

    Crude oil

    The low in Feb.’16 for Crude oil at 26.05 ended a zig zag downswing from the all-time-high of 147.27 traded in July ’08. That means the following advance from 26.05 is either a single zig zag as wave X ending into Oct.’18 high of 76.90 a developing double zig zag that ultimately extends to new record highs, at some stage over the next several years.

    Our take on this depicts a double zig zag unfolding to record highs – why? Because it’s positively correlated to the driving force of the global economy, U.S. stock markets and eventually, a weakening US$ dollar. Stock markets are forecast to higher-highs over the next several years – the US$ dollar correspondingly engaged in a downtrend (notwithstanding the opposite moves during H2 2019).

    The sharp decline from the Oct.’18 high of 76.90 began an X wave correction in the form of an A-B-C zig zag, but this remains incomplete. Downside targets are below last December’s low of 42.36 which can only mean one thing – a dip in global growth will limit consumption over the next 6-month period, pulling prices lower.

    Brent oil

    Brent oil has exactly the same rhythm as Crude oil. Brent formed its major low in Feb.’16 at 27.10 and is engaged in a cycle degree A-B-C-X-A-B-C double zig zag advance which ultimately projects prices trading to new record highs over the next several years.

    Shorter-term however, a stronger US$ dollar through H2 2019 combined with a slowing of global growth pulls prices lower as wave X – downside targets are below the Dec.’18 low of 49.93.

    XLE Energy index

    One interesting contradiction comes from the XLE Energy index. Its Dec.’18 low at 53.36 ended a primary degree expanding flat correction which began from the Dec.’16 high of 78.45. Furthermore, the Dec.’18 advance into the May ’19 high of 68.81 completed the 1st wave of a new major uptrend and this was followed by a zig zag correction ending just recently, at the end-May low of 58.77. That ended a 2nd wave retracement at the exact fib. 61.8% level, confirming the next stage of its 3rd wave uptrend has already begun. Some pullback can be expected over the shorter-term horizon, perhaps reattempting the 58.77 low if Crude/Brent stage expected declines, although not breaking below that support. But it does question the validity of the comparably larger declines forecast for Crude/Brent oil through H2 2019.

    Conclusions

    As the second-half of 2019 gets underway, there are several aspects to be aware of. The first is the heightened probability that the US$ dollar will now accelerate higher by up to +7% per cent. Base Metals are still engaged in 2nd wave corrective downswings that began from the early-2018 highs. Precious Metals are set to pull lower over the next 6-months despite gold recently breaking above its 2016 highs. Crude and Brent oil have yet to complete zig zag downswings that began from their 2018 highs (similar pattern to Base Metals), requiring a modest break below last December’s lows.

    The natural conclusion is that the global economy will take a dip in growth during the next 6-month period, causing stock markets to extend counter-trend declines that began from the early-May highs, triggering safe-haven buying of the US$ dollar and pulling economic-sensitive commodities lower in the process.

    We’re pleased to announce the publication of WaveTrack’s mid-year 2019 video updates of medium-term ELLIOTT WAVE price-forecasts. Today’s release is PART I, STOCK INDICES – Parts II & III will be published during the next month.

    EW-Forecast Review – H1 2019

    The Annual 2019 report published last January (2019) highlighted several main points. Contrary to consensus Elliott Wave and Economists’ opinion, the U.S. secular-bull uptrend remained in upward progress. Primary wave 5’s advance began from the ‘financial-crisis’ lows of 2008/09. Subdividing into a five wave pattern of intermediate degree, (1)-(2)-(3)-(4)-(5), wave (3)’s peak ended in early-2018. Also wave (4) was approaching a major low [we now know this ended into the late-December ’18 lows]. Finally, wave (5) would then begin one additional but final advance to record highs, but lasting the next several years targeting benchmark S&P 500 levels towards 4397.45+/- (that’s +52% per cent higher than today’s closing levels!!).

    The ‘Inflation-Pop’ event first hypothesized back in early 2010 illustrates how central banks have inflated the price of things, stocks, bonds and commodities since the end of the ‘financial-crisis’ of 2008/09 in an attempt to prop-up economies to prevent them from imploding into a deflationary cycle.

    With some certainty, derived from cross-correlation studies with European and Asian indices, U.S. markets are set for some extraordinary advances over the next few years. Positive correlations with mainstream commodities like Copper and Crude Oil support this forecast which is also backed-up by Elliott Wave pattern development in Emerging Market indices.

    Main Theme’s & Drivers

    There’s no doubt that U.S. trade policy led by President Donald Trump’s intention to reverse the 30-year decline of industry and manufacturing has led to protectionism and a potential trade war with China and most of its traditional allies. As a result trade tariffs with China focusing mainstream commodities and products has recently morphed into a technological trade war with China’s Huawei specifically targeted and China’s retaliation by banning exports of essential rare-earth metals.

    Economists are continuing to remind us that an inverted yield-curve is signalling the onset of a recession. And more recently, international agencies like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have warned that trade disputes will cause a drop of -0.5% per cent in global growth. So far economists are falling over each other to be first in downgrading their own growth targets.
    The geopolitical environment is also fragile. There are sporadic reports that surface surrounding North Korea’s reactivation of nuclear facilities, U.S. pressure over Iran’s announcement that it intends to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal and tensions surrounding access through China’s ‘nine-dash’ demarcation line marking territorial waters in the South China Sea.

    Despite these negative events, Elliott Wave analysis points towards the continuation of stock markets uptrends over the next few years. That just wouldn’t be possible if some geopolitical event was to trigger a military confrontation, or even a war – or perhaps some other exogenous event that hasn’t emerged so far – which means there’s a bright future ahead, once the short-term effects of a trade war and geopolitical tension are put aside. But what about the short-term implications of these current events?

    What Next H2 2019?

    The lows of December ’18 turned the corner for U.S. indices, ending 2018’s counter-trend declines – but not all global indices ended in similar fashion. European indices put in important lows but there are some Emerging Markets and Asian Indices where 2018’s corrections remain incomplete. These are set to extend lower into the second-half of 2019, already visible in January’s annual 2019 report. These up-coming declines are expected to drag U.S. indices lower in H2-2019 lasting until September/October. But as January’s forecasts anticipated, these declines would eventually give way to the next major uptrend.

    Emerging Markets + Asia – Australia – Japan

    Emerging Market indices offer revealing insights into future price direction, both in the short-term and the larger outlook over the next few years.

    The benchmark MSCI EM index remains one of the key ‘Inflation-Pop’ archetypal patterns in development from the ‘financial-crisis’ lows of Dec.’08. Its advance is taking the form of a primary degree zig zag, A-B-C. Wave C’s final advance set for record highs over the next several years began from the grand ‘Re-Synchronisation’ lows of Jan/Feb.’16.

    The advance as primary wave C must subdivide into an intermediate degree five wave impulse pattern, (1)-(2)-(3)-(4)-(5) and our default thinking is always attuned to an ‘expanding-impulse’ type pattern. But in actually fact, the initial 1st wave advance from 2016’s low exhibits three wave sequences ending into the Jan.’18 highs which confirms primary wave C is taking the form of a ‘diagonal-impulse’ pattern instead. The latest Elliott Wave analysis of the 2nd wave correction from that 2018 high remains in focus for the remainder of 2019 and it will have consequences for the major U.S., European and Asian indices too.

    Nikkei – Watch out for next major decline

    by WaveTrack International| May 20, 2019 | No Comments

    Nikkei’s 5-Wave Decline from April High Great Proxy for U.S./European Indices – 3-Wave Correction Almost Done! Watch-Out for Next Major Decline!!

    Nikkei 225 Elliott Wave Analysis

    This short-term look at the Nikkei’s decline from the early-May high of 22505 (futures) is a perfect proxy of the entire scene unfolding in global indices.

    Nikkei 225 Index - 60 mins. Forecast by www.wavetrack.com

    Nikkei 225 Index – 60 mins. Forecast by WaveTrack International

    There’s a very clear five wave impulse pattern unfolding into last Tuesday’s low of 20765. This pattern is labelled as minute wave a and subdividing [i]-[ii]-[iii]-[iv]-[v]. This is part of the ongoing zig zag downswing that began minor wave e. of the 18-month triangle pattern (more details in our previous Elliott Wave Compass Reports).

    Note how the 3rd wave as minuette wave [iii] was the longest wave in the pattern. And how the two corrective waves, [ii] and [iv] adhered to the rule of ‘alternation’. Especially, how fib-price-ratios pinpointed the terminal completion at 20765, i.e. waves [i]-[iii] x 61.8% = [v].

    Nikkei Forecast

    A counter-trend rally has since begun but already approaching idealised upside targets for wave b towards 21482+/-. Once completed, we expect wave c to begin the next and final sequence of declines.

    Elliott Wave – Crude Oil – Are Price Trends Predictable?

    by WaveTrack International| April 15, 2019 | 3 Comments

    Is Crude Oil predictable?

    Anyone connected to the financial markets industry knows just how difficult it is to accurately predict price changes, duration and the amplitude of trends. Billions of dollars are spent annually on research derived from varying models, economic, fundamental analysis, mathematical algorithms and even artificial intelligence programmes. But is there efficiency? Has market analysis really improved over the last several decades since the computer revolution?

    It seems that more complex ways are being experimented in order to predict price trends but that hasn’t revolutionised the industry. Most large asset managers employ huge teams to outperform major indices which provide the benchmark for performance. However, most active managers are left either underperforming or are marginally ahead of the game. Consider to add all the twists and turns in a market trend together over a year. This would account to a far greater percentage swing than just a trend that measures its starting point in January and its completion in December. Which means there’s a lot of wastage – inefficiency.

    Crude Oil or Forecasting Nightmare?

    So, it was no surprise to read a recent report from CNBC which ran its story around a senior research analyst working for a major Oil brokerage company based in London, U.K. The analyst commented in its latest research note that ‘There are so many uncertainties surrounding the oil market that it makes it virtually impossible to predict developments for the rest of the week let alone for months or a year ahead’. The report went on ‘There are economic and geopolitical developments to deal with and these can change almost on a daily basis’. The analyst described oil market conditions as a ‘forecasting nightmare’.

    Elliott Wave vs. Fundamental Forecasting

    Now I’m the first to be sympathetic. I know just how difficult it can be to predict future price development several months in advance. Many analysts have climbed to fame over one maybe two historic calls. A few names, unmentioned here rose to notoriety during the financial-crisis collapse of 2007-09 but have since faded from view. Yes, because it’s difficult.

    Most analysts pick their way through short-term calls which are about 3-5% per cent away from current levels, erratic as that performance may be. It’s a bit like two fleas playing ping-pong (table-tennis) on the back of a dog. Yes, they have some idea of the limits of the balls movement. But absolutely no idea about the direction of the dog.

    But there’s a methodology that moves away from the ‘incrementalist’ idea of ‘linear-thinking’ which is better tuned into the concept that markets are non-linear progressions of action/reaction processes – and that’s the Elliott Wave (EW) methodology.

    Can Elliott Wave predict Crude Oil?

    Our specialisation in the EW model has produced some uncanny market calls over the last 25+ years, across all asset classes. Many cannot be scrutinised as random forecasts because of the sheer complexity of pattern, form, price amplitude and duration employed in that analysis. If you’re a mathematician and understand the probability of forecasting such trends, then you’ll know that to predict something so arcuate would be hundreds-of-thousands against – and if repeated, is so mathematically improbable that the only reasoning would be to confirm that there is an underlying law that is being applied in the process.

    So when it comes to Crude Oil analysis, let’s see whether the Elliott Wave model has merits.

    The next six charts represent a Track Record of EW price forecasts published in WaveTrack International’s bi-weekly and/or monthly analysis covering the last 3-year period.

    WaveTrack’s Crude Oil Track Record

    Crude Oil Exhibit 1 – January 9th 2016

    Crude Oil - Weekly - 9th January 2016 Forecast

    Crude Oil – Weekly – 9th January 2016 Forecast

    Crude Oil is engaged in a three price-swing zig zag decline that began from the July ’08 all-time-record high of $147.27, labelled A-B-C. Basis Elliott Wave and Fib-Price-Ratio analysis, wave C downside targets were measured towards $25.60-25.26+/-. The price at the time of this analysis was at 33.16 which means it was forecasting a decline of approx. $7.50 dollars but then ending the entire zig zag pattern/decline from $147.27, then staging a reversal to begin a new uptrend.

    Crude Oil Exhibit 2 – May 10th 2016

    Crude Oil - Weekly - 10th May 2016 Forecast

    Crude Oil – Weekly – 10th May 2016 Forecast

    Crude Oil ended the three price-swing zig zag decline at 26.05, just $0.45 cents from the projected low. Coincidence? Hardly! The price responded not by any fundamental news at the time – sentiment was very bearish then – but it instead responded to the Laws that define price development as seen through the Elliott Wave Principle. Crude Oil was already trading up to $43.47, a recovery of +66% per cent. And not only that, the updated analysis then projected prices unfolding higher but within specific parameters, or conditions – the advance must unfold higher into a three price-swing formation, labelled A-B-C, and amplitude analysis using Fib-Price-Ratios predicted the advance would end towards $75.09+/-, then turn down dramatically afterwards.

    Crude Oil Exhibit 3 – August 26th 2018

    Crude Oil - Weekly - 26th August 2018 Forecast - www.wavetrack.com

    Crude Oil – Weekly – 26th August 2018 Forecast – www.wavetrack.com

    It’s taken over 2½ years for the A-B-C zig zag upswing to develop and only in Aug.’18 is it approaching original upside targets of $75.09+/-, now revised to $78.90+/-. But the pattern isn’t quite finished – a little more upside was forecast from current levels of $68.72 to $78.90+/-. Afterwards, a big downswing would begin with initial targets towards 55.70+/-.

    Crude Oil Exhibit 4 – November 22nd 2018

    Crude Oil - Weekly - 22nd November 2018 Forecast - www.wavetrack.com

    Crude Oil – Weekly – 22nd November 2018 Forecast – www.wavetrack.com

    Crude Oil traded up to $76.90 in late-October, ending the A-B-C zig zag pattern that was forecast almost 3-years earlier to $75.09-78.90+/-! The next forecast predicted a decline towards min. $55.70+/-, revised here towards $44.75+/-.

    Crude Oil Exhibit 5 – January 9th 2019

    Crude Oil - Weekly - 9th January 2019 Forecast - www.wavetrack.com

    Crude Oil – Weekly – 9th January 2019 Forecast – www.wavetrack.com

    Price declines continued down to a final low at $42.36, a massive drop of $34.54 dollars or a -44.9% per cent decline. Elliott Wave analysis then forecast a three price-swing zig zag pattern developing to the upside over several months, labelled (A)-(B)-(C) – upside projections were to min. $61.70+/-, max. $66.80+/-.

    Crude Oil Exhibit 6 – April 11th 2019

    Crude Oil - Weekly - 11th April 2019 Forecast - www.wavetrack.com

    Crude Oil – Weekly – 11th April 2019 Forecast – www.wavetrack.com

    Crude Oil ran higher, exactly as predicted, unfolding into a three price-swing zig zag pattern, (A)-(B)-(C) with price targets being reached at 64.79 (April 8th). Analysis now predicts a sharp downswing over the next several months, towards $33.70+/-.

    Conclusion

    The overall form and price-forecasts presented in these six charts over a 3-year period developed almost perfectly according to the Universal Laws governing the Elliott Wave Principle. Even a casual eye will notice the predictability in price development and its accuracy can only result in one conclusion – an inherent, mysterious law is governing the price development of all financial/commodity/currency markets – if those laws are known, understood, then accurate price prediction is certainly possible

    Dow Jones – Triangle Break-Out?

    by WaveTrack International| March 29, 2019 | No Comments

    Dow Jones – Triangle Break-Out?

    There was bearish divergence between the major U.S. indices during the last month. The Dow Jones (DJIA) peaked on February 25th at 26238 (futures) remaining below since whilst the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 stretched to higher-highs on March 22nd.

    The S&P and Nasdaq have since declined as intra-hourly five wave impulse patterns into their March 25th lows of 2789.50 and 7290.00 respectively. This, of course, significantly increases the probability they’ve ended December’s larger five-wave uptrend.

    Dow Jones – Range-Trading

    But the Dow’s range-traded over the last month. At no time has it declined into an obvious five wave pattern to corroborate a larger corrective downswing has begun. In actual fact, the range-trading is consistent with a contracting/symmetrical-triangle pattern – see fig #1.

    Dow Jones 30 Index Forecast - 120 mins. by WaveTrack International

    Dow Jones 30 Index Forecast – 120 mins. by WaveTrack International

    It’s not quite finished yet though. The triangle is generally composed of five main price-swings, in this case, labelled [a]-[b]-[c]-[d]-[e] where wave [d] is currently pushing higher – fib-price-ratio measurements project wave [d] towards 25994+/-. Wave [e] would then decline towards 25520+/-, derived where wave [e] unfolds by a fib. 61.8% ratio of wave [c].

    If price activity confirms to these next two price-swings, it would almost certainly result in ending the triangle as a 4th wave within December’s five-wave uptrend, followed by a 5th wave break-out to the upside.

    A break to the upside wouldn’t necessarily mean a break to higher-highs for the S&P and Nasdaq. Don’t forget, they’ve traded down into five wave patterns already. This indicates they will remain below their existing highs should the Dow break higher. And if the Dow breaks higher and the others don’t. Then a different kind of bearish divergence will occur – swapping roles this time!

    Yield Inversion Coming to an End

    by WaveTrack International| March 27, 2019 | No Comments

    Fixed Income Service – US3mth Eurodollar-US10yr Yield Spread

    Rising expectations of a global recession have resurfaced over the last week. Especially, since the US$ dollar yield curve inverts for the first time since Dec.’07. Back then, the inversion actually began in Oct.’7. Just two months before the stock market peak of Oct.’07 that began the financial-crisis sell-off.

    Investor’s perception is that an interest rate inversion precedes a global recession. Although, in a recent research note from Canaccord Genuity wealth management, it says there’s a time lag between the two events. It quotes ‘even if the yield curve inverts…over the past seven economic cycles, the median S&P 500 gain from the initial inversion to ‘the’ cycle peak is 21% per cent, with a recession a median 19 months after the initial inversion. If you look at the previous three most similar cycles, the S&P 500 gains to peak rises to 34% and recession is 25 months later’.

    Obviously, there’s a distinct difference between the performance of the S&P 500 and what qualifies as a recession following a yield curve inversion. We know that recessions follow the price action. However, more often lagging by several months. That was certainly the case during the financial-crisis sell-off.

    FMS Investors now expect a steeper yield curve

    FMS Investors now expect a steeper yield curve by ZeroHedge.com

    One of the interesting statistics from the latest Bank of America/Merrill Lynch survey was that fund managers economic growth expectations was actually improving, not worsening over the last month – see fig #1 [courtesy of ZeroHedge.com]. It states ‘growth expectations rebounding…net 25% of FMS investors expect global growth to weaken over the next 12 months, up 22ppt (percentage points) MoM and 36ppt from the low of 60% in January ’19 (which was consistent with 2000/01 & 2008/09 recessions), despite biggest 2-month improvement since Dec.’16 growth expectations still remain v (sic. very) vs. FMS history’.

    Yield Inversion Coming to an End

    We wonder if lowered expectations of a recession are because the S&P 500 has just traded to a new post-December ’18 high (2866.00)? Most probably, in which case, with the onset of a steep corrective downswing which is forecast developing over the next few months, at least from an Elliott Wave perspective [wavetrack.com], these expectations will most likely rise again, heading back to January’s figure of 60% per cent.

    US3months EuroDollar-US10yr Yield Spread – Monthly by WaveTrack International

    The long-term chart of the US 3mth Eurodollar-US10yr Yield Spread is fascinating to see – fig #2. It depicts a constant range-trade between +3.478 and -1.410 since the early-1980’s. This covers the period of the yield inflation-peak of January 1981 through to the major lows of years-2012/16. Each major upswing/downswing are labelled unfolding into primary degree zig zags. These are probably part of a multi-decennial triangle pattern, A-B-C-D-E.

    The narrowing phase which began wave D’s downswing from the Dec.’09 high of 3.478 has since unfolded into a primary degree zig zag. Labelled as A-B-C where wave A ended an initial decline at 1.083 in July ’12. Using WaveTrack International’s proprietary technique of measuring a zig zag pattern, wave A is extended by a fib. 61.8% ratio to project a terminal low for wave C towards -0.410+/-.

    Conclusion

    With current levels trading around -0.113, it seems that we’ll not have too long to wait! Soon the validity of -0.410+/- in determining the end of the zig zag and the beginning of a new widening/steepening cycle will be tested. And whether that translates into an S&P 500 downturn sometime into the future is another interesting question.

    SP500 and 3 Degrees of Trend

    by WaveTrack International| February 26, 2019 | 2 Comments

    SP500 – Three Degrees of Trend Ends December’s Impulse Upswing @ 2814.00

  • The SP500 extended above original upside targets of 2724.00+/- but has undergone a 5th wave ‘extension’ which is itself a 7/100 probability. Ordinarily, this advance would have ended earlier at the Feb. 14th high of 2763.00 but the ‘extension’ has prolonged December’s uptrend. Three degrees of trend ends into last night’s high of 2814.00 – this unequivocally confirms December’s broader five wave advance has completed and set to give way to a deep multi-week corrective downswing

    NYSE Composite Index + Wilshire 5000 – December’s Five Wave Uptrend Tests Upside Targets – Preparing for Counter-Trend Downswing!!

    The following is an extract from our Institutional Stock Index Report published Thursday January 17th 2019

  • December’s rally in the NYSE Composite and Wilshire 5000 indices are both unfolding into a five wave ‘expanding-impulse’ patterns. This means the December low ended 2018’s correction ahead of the S&P 500 and Nikkei. Shorter-term, this impulse pattern remains incomplete with upside targets around +11% per cent higher. This is directly comparable to the Nikkei’s +7% upswing basis the performance ratio of 1:1.7. Only when completed do we expect to see the S&P 500 and Nikkei begin one additional and final decline for the diagonal pattern. The NYSE Composite and Wilshire 5000 indices synchronise as they begin a 2nd wave correction
