61.8 and Feeling Great- Here's Today's Stock Market Trading Outlook

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Yesterday at one point the 5 day cycle projection was 4420. Nailed it. Then the projection got to 4440. That was probably my brown sunglasses talking. 4420 turned out to be it. 

In the overnight session so far, the ES S&P 500 futures pulled back to an exact 61.8% retracement of yesterday's rally. And I mean exact. There the pullback stopped at around 3 AM in NY, and as I write an hour later, they've rebounded. 

So, what next. The minute direction is still down unless and until they clear the trendline now around 4400. That line will be at 4395 when New York opens later this morning.  

There are no projections yet on either the 5 day or the 2-3 day cycle. We need a few more bars. 

If the pullback resumes and breaks 4385, then a full retest of the low would be likely. At that point the hourly cycle and momentum oscillators would still be in positive divergences. That would be a good setup for a low and a launch, a nice W bottom.  Only if that fizzles at a lower high would lower lows then be likely today or Monday. 



And in the bigger picture, this week's selloff was almost an exact 50% retracement of the July 19-August 16 rally. Funny how that works. Here it is on 2 hour bars.

1/2 hour into pre market trading, and an hour before regular trading, the fucutures are in a ready-for-anything setup. 

The effective range is now 4377 to 4395. Should get a decent move from a breakout either way.

The end of summer comes early and fast here at 52 degrees latitude North. Highs this week in the low 70s. Next week, mid 60s. And nothing higher in sight in September, says Accuweather.
