Stalking Pivotal High
At 42 trading days (TDs) from the crest of the prior 39.8 TD cycle high – and 82 trading days from the prior 79.6 TD duplex high – the time parameters are there for the next important pivotal peak. I note that we have the Dow Industrials, the Dow Transports, and the S&P 500 at record highs, yet still conspicuously absent from the new high roster: the New York Composite, the NASDAQ Composite, the Russell 2000, and the European indices – notably the U.K. FTSE-100. If the 79.6 TD duplex function (two consecutive 39.8 TD cycles) were to expand to 89 trading days – a very plausible possibility – that would suggest we could have about another six trading days to go before we reach my expected cyclical peak.
Given the breakout today by the Dow and S&P, I’m inclined to view that as a very possible scenario. I also note that the prior low-to-low sequence spanned 48 trading days – a repeat of that 48 TDs from the 19-Sep-14H would also suggest a peak in the vicinity of 26-Nov-14 – with SPX at roughly 2,062.50. Given that modest upside risk in price, I’m inclined to take that continued measured risk.
