Change-In-Trend

with Anthony, ZigZag & Platy

W/E 07 Oct 2012

You can see how price has continually respected the upwards sloping channel previously posted. So far we have had 6 tests of this channel and a rebound to higher prices. The last 4 closes have also been trading in a steeper upwards channel which may offer some indication as to the target. However we are yet to break through the 1460 region on the last 2 attempts we have failed. If we fail again this time i will initiate a short position.

A decisive break of the upwards sloping bottom pitchfork would suggest that the sell off has begun.

    Anthony, you mentioned a collapsing low on Oct 9 before, which seems to rhyme with what Karen’s chart is showing….also how is one to interpret the Dollar CIT on Sep 29 and Oct 5 since 29 was not the actual low but we saw a lower low and then bounce on 5th? Do you think Oct 28 will be the top for dollar which kind of rhymes with the low for metals on the same day?

    Anthony, if your roadmap chart comes true, we will be at 1325 SPX cash by 10/24 or so without any stops/large bounces in between. Am I interpreting it right?

    SPX weekly…closing price contained below upper bollinger band (100,2) currently at 1462.69…pink/blue oscillator continues to hang by a very thin thread…important to note that the SPX daily did not signal a sell…enjoy the weekend…

        October 5, 2012

        ZZ’s top is Tuesday, and I am quite bullish. Probably shouldn’t have put that in at EOD like that though – forgot it was Friday!

        • Karen
          October 5, 2012

          I see that Apple looked to complete 5 waves down in this latest wave, and SPX completed an abc down today, so they both look like they completed a wave structure at the same time…on top of that the VIX bounced on this move down, so it has room on the downside should we get a bounce next week…I am expecting a bounce as well next week Platy….I believe the Jupiter aspect is still in play here….

          • Karen
            October 5, 2012

            Although, I just want to make one caveat, XIV looks like it needs another leg down, so I would not rule out a little more down before a bounce….if that is the case, we could be getting the 5th wave down for SPX on monday (intraday move), which would lead me to believe the bounce we get afterwards would have more chances of being a lower high….

            If we open higher and continue to go higher then, a new high is possible…

        • platypusfoot

    compx high 3171.46 (predicted 3171-3173) and es high 1466 (predicted 1467-69) is especially interesting as it these are planetary prices for today’s Merc 0 Sat 120 Ceres transit.

    • quynhunguyen
      October 5, 2012

      Curiousmind – I just go way at the bottom under “recent comments” to see if anybody new had just posted, click on it & it’ll bring u to that latest post, easier than scrolling through the page. Do that until it’s fixed.

      • Karen
        October 5, 2012

        Thanks Quy for the help on “recent comments”, I too was having a hard time finding a way to reply to someone’s post…Looking at the dollar is great, but also pay attention to the VIX, we are now at support. The last time we were here was on 9/14 and before that was 8/17 where we saw a pullback, but then one last push up to a higher high on 8/21 (2 TD’s later), so bulls beware….we could pullback and then attempt to make a higher high, but I will be watching the VIX, I want to see it hold this trend line around 13.64….

        • Stockboom
          October 5, 2012

          Karen,

          What is current VIX price and how far it is from 13.64? 13.64 is multi year low?

          Thanks

          • Karen
            October 5, 2012

            VIX hit a low of 13.67 today….currently sitting around 14.14. There is a multi year trendline support at around 13.30 that has timed tops since 2007. Since then, it has not broken this trendline support…so it is significant to watch…

  15. Michael
    October 5, 2012

    Quy, looking at Anthony’s comments, he’s very sure of today being a top and i can’t remember when he was so sure so I wouldn’t go against him here, I’m already in a breakeven trade from 1470 so far, so lets see, if it keeps falling, ill add more

    I also have to say, this has not been a good year for astro, even the great Merriman and Crawford have got it wrong this year, so if Anthony is contra – astro, i’m going with him 🙂

    Goodluck mate

      October 5, 2012

      You’re right Michael, nobody’s right 100% of the time, but I do love the fact that we have all different views here now, where it seemed one sided for a while. Different views keep you on your toes, make you honor your stops. I do agree with a pullback here. Like I mentioned, I already sold SPX this morning because of that, but I view the pullbacks as minor & will put $ to work, until UUP proves to me otherwise. Trust me, once I know I’m wrong, my stops will get me out, I’m not going to give back what I made the past week.

      • Michael

    Bought PSQ, DOG and shorted AAPL and GS at the open. Tight stops on GS and AAPL, but will hold and add to DOG and PSQ next week if need be.

  17. quynhunguyen
    October 5, 2012

    For anyone interested, I just bought more SLV, it almost touched its 10 day moving average minutes ago. I think it should break above 34 next few weeks, possibly to 36. My stop at 33.25

  18. platypusfoot
    October 5, 2012

    Just oil right now and a small silver short.

  19. quynhunguyen
    October 5, 2012

    SB & SS76 – Like ZZ, I’m not good at prices. All I know is UUP cycle tells me the dollar may not bottom for another 2 weeks, so tough for me to be bearish the next 2 weeks. Like I mentioned to Platy, my best guess is since SPX is close to the 1474 it reached mid Sep., there could be a minor pullback to form a small handle, but it could resume back up afterward. I sold this morning, will put $ back to work slowly during any pullback. Always put your stops in, nobody is right 100% of the time.

    • SS76
      October 5, 2012

      Thanks Q.

  20. Anthony
    October 5, 2012

    If we look at the dollar CITs of 29 September and 4 October you will notice that the USD chart posted a high on the 1 Oct and a low on the 5 Oct both 1 day later than the CIT dates. Therefore we can assume that the SPX high is in. I arrived a day early and sold into the move up starting on 4 Oct. Prior to that i had bought on the 1st and took about 14pts profit on the way up.

    From a weekly perspective we have just completed a wave 2 up. Therefore we should not breach the prior high on 14 Sep and move down into at least early November. Risk assets had already begun their decline and are likely to continue to move down with equities.

    My roadmap has been clear about my time expectations. I have been rattling on about this high for weeks. Now we head down. It will be choppy but i believe we will head under 1400, the astro gurus will disagree with me on this one. But at this stage i dare not fade the roadmap when it has been so accurate in the past. Time trumps technicals.

    Edit: Just looking at the charts this morning it appears that we could have a bounce higher on Monday to around 1461 on the eminis. This is all part of the volatile move down however so will just have to weather the storm.

    Target to the downside is 1433 (S&P cash), 143 (SPY)

  22. quynhunguyen
    October 5, 2012

    Stockboom – Open QE won’t work in bringing unemployment down, just like those other QEs. All it’ll do is pumping money into risk assets (especially metals), destroying the dollar, that’s why I’m still very skeptical about any major SPX pullback. Anyone with a 3 year investment horizon, could triple their money in metals in 3 yrs.

    • Stockboom
      October 5, 2012

      but you missing that even other QE’s have not create inflation, we are far far away from hyper inflation….

      • quynhunguyen
        October 5, 2012

        SB – Oh, but just wait, oil just put in its intermediate cycle bottom. Once it goes up, the economy will take a beating like it did in ’08, there u’ll see inflation. That’s another reason I’m not bearish, with oil bottoming, it’s tough for SPX to pull back much.

    comming aspect and all technicals line up …..$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$..keep up the good work cheers GOD BLESS .

    Anthony, ZZ, Platy or anyone, someone!

    So now we are so close to Oct 9th ( due to long weekend) can we say that today or tuesday will be top and then down road from there till NOV?

    I think down road from here to November that is almost two months, I know there will be zigzag( not you ZZ :)) but still looks to me too long to sustain when Obama wants people to think positive before election….

    Thank you

      Hi Sb,

      I plan to start shorting this morning and will add if we’re up on Monday and Tuesday. I have some cycles on the weekly that are hitting today..

      The market is open on Monday I believe, only the bond market is closed.

    • quynhunguyen
      October 5, 2012

      Stockboom – Since you asked for “anyone”, I thought I’d chime in. I think these turn dates are good, but you have to have something else to confirm them. I’ve been bullish here since Wed. low of last week & I posted stating that, but everyone here ignored it. Just look at UUP as a confirmation, that’s the dollar index, if it keeps going down, then all markets will head up. I track UUP cycle and its low is not due until a couple of more weeks, that means markets could still continue up from here. I may have offended some people with my view, but all I want is just to offer another view. I think people underestimate the power of this “open QE”, which means the Fed can pump money in the system ANYTIME they want.

        Thank you ZZ, Quyn

        One thing I would like we should discuss on this board is what Open QE means and what is the roadmap after election…is it possible that FED can come up with guideline, let’s say if unemployment reach 7% then we will stop open QE…or something else another indicator or target….how market will react to those guidelines….

        • platypusfoot
          October 5, 2012

          Open QE will not stop until the currency is completely destroyed IMO.

        • quynhunguyen
          October 5, 2012

          Thanks Platy. I was hoping you’d follow me for this ride up, since you were the only one opened to my view. I think now that SPX has gotten close to the 1474 reached mid Sep., it could pull back a bit to form a small handle early next week, but be careful about shorting, it could resume right back up after that handle.

          • platypusfoot
            October 5, 2012

            Like Anthony said earlier this week, I have a much more bullish outlook than him or ZZ. I tend to lean toward your thinking. Really appreciate your input.

            Not true, Q.mi don’t post much, mostly just read, but I have leaned towards believing those who are more bullish simply b/c it seems as tho that is the trend for now. When that breaks is anyone’s guess. I bought XIV low &17s and sold.

      • Karen
        October 5, 2012

        “Quy” there were other bullish views here other than yours, from other people on the blog, such as ganman. I for one wrote:

        “Looks like we have a Sun Jupiter trine on the 9th, so looks like there is a possibility that we could make a new high somewhere between the 9-15th, looking more like around the 10/11th. Merriman confirms a possibility… “And finally we have a somewhat important planetary station arising on October 4, when Jupiter turns retrograde. It is still possible that stock markets advance once more to a new cycle high within a week of this occurrence.” I will not take this lightly…he has a lot of great insight…”

        “Sun/Jupiter trines are very positive….the market can run up a week or two into this aspect…”

        I just wish I had stuck with my convictions…. 😦 i don’t think this is as much QE as it is time, price, cycles and astro’s….

        • quynhunguyen

            I have a COT chart on silver that says smart money is bearish, just as in Feb 2012 before a big correction…I don’t think we will see that kind of correction, but they are bearish nonetheless…

    off to the races …employment numbers good as per say…. high in to the trine now …..so my understanding would be ……we r still currently under a cit 10/5/2012 thru 10/8/2012…any market going up in to this cit will make a crest and then reverse or vice versa …..looking at the aspects and current situation we r making a high from which we should soon reverse next week so the cit of 10/9/2012 is a very high probability low risk trade…$$$$$$$….lets see where we close today……

        Question is when you say it’s the high, is it till next week or for the month ?

    Anthony,

    With the run up today, I decided to buy some nov puts on qqq and spy. If the roadmap plays out, these options should perform fairly well. Still waiting for the nov lows to deploy my 401K again. I bought some vix puts for protection just in case this does not play out.

  29. Anthony
    October 4, 2012

    I think this market could go as high as 1473 (cash) before pulling back so manage your risk. Will add more shorts if we reach these levels.

      and Sat trine Nep on 10/16. EDCOT suggests higher into 3rd week of October. 10/16 Sat trine Nep price = 1479. Higher resistance on that date at 1483, 1489 to 1493, 1502 and 1505. fwiw.

    I got out /es breakeven finally, 2:54pm. Just bounced around my buy-in price all day and I could not get a good stop in.

    Looking at the Nadsaq, it has fulfilled my requirement to re-test the breakout area last week, and it put in a double bottom on Tuesday, my most likely turn date in my October 2-5 window. And the dollar has broken out of its channel and looks very weak. So I’ll be looking for a minor pull-back in /nq to get long.

    • quynhunguyen
      October 4, 2012

      Platy – My take is things will close at the high today, then it’ll gap up tomorrow once the employment report is out of the way, leaving people behind, unless they chase.

    AAPL…significant negative divergence between price (although it is not shown it was higher recently then it was in the spring) and the weekly trend indicator (orange/blue) which has turned down…histogram (gold) is negative…pivot (green) signaled a sell…two cycle indicators (blue and pink) are negative…good luck with your trading…

      Wouldn’t surprise me Steven. I definitely have been off a bit on this last one.

    • SS76
      October 4, 2012

      ZZ, do you think then perhaps since you figured today was the low, and I really doubt tomorrows job report will be disappointing with the election around the corner, that perhaps today was just a minor peak, with the rally extending into the 9th capping out around 1475?

      • ZigZag
        October 4, 2012

        That’s very possible SS76. Just have to wait and see what happens next week..I’m a time junkie and don’t know what price we’ll hit by then, but we do know that the biggest drop in price on the correlation didn’t happen until after the 9th. I will probably begin to start building a short here starting tomorrow.

    good morning ZZ,
    do you still think we will see a low today, than head up from here for a few days?
    thanks

    • ZigZag
      October 4, 2012

      Good morning guelph1,

      Hard to say what we do between now and around the 9th. Anthony was correct and it’s looking like today could be a peak. My cycles are hitting today, and this is when we see a good chance of a reversal in price. The correlation has us drifting a bit higher towards the 9th, so we have to watch for that still.

      The correlation had today as a low and that’s why I was thinking low. Most of my focus is around the 9th anyway and I don’t think we’ll see the market above the September high before then. I still see plenty of potential danger ahead.

  45. quynhunguyen

    I wouldn’t be too bearish here, everything’s lined up to make new highs next week, with a possible dollar plunge into its intermediate cycle low next week.

    • platypusfoot
      October 4, 2012

      Yeah I’m pretty cautious on this one. But the dollar should at least come back to test the lower channel at around 79.8 I think.

      • quynhunguyen
        October 4, 2012

        The thing is Platy, the dollar has known to plunge into its intermediate cycle low in the past, so I think it’ll do it again. This last plunge will drive everything else higher, to suck people in. I’ve got my stops in just in case though.

    Hi,
    SInce Anthony is now bearish into November, ZigZag is not bearish into November until Oct 9th+- and I’m not sure where Platy sits; is it reasonable to assume all 3 of you will align again around Oct 9th to be bearish into November based on yours systems? Thanks.

    • SS76
      October 4, 2012

      Well, I think Anthony is right here, the low happened a couple days ago and today looks to be the high……with perhaps tomorrow being another low. Perhaps a good exit of your shorts will be tomorrow, and the next high to short will be around the 9th….

    • platypusfoot

          • Anthony
            October 3, 2012

            Who cares about the election?

            So the market tanks and risk assets sells. Obama says “what inflation!!!! vote for me”

            Then he gets re-elected and inflation soars.

            In my opinion Keynesian economics is one thing the stock market is a totally separate entity. They are not linked. We need inflation in oil to bring down the “economy”, that is still to come after prices have softened.

            Stock markets don’t top on bad news.

    Another question, very interesting the chart black background, with the dates is fantastic, and fits with my short-term scenario, but there is another vith the sun and the moon similar with blue line and black the sp500, are both yours?

    What kind of cycle do you work to obtain it/them?

    Apology (sorry for my english is not perfect)

    • ZigZag
      October 3, 2012

      I believe the one with the sun and moon is Platy’s chart.

      I look at highs and lows to locate dates where price reversals are likely to happen, and I like to see alignment in multiple cycles hitting close to the same time frame.

            Thanks for the referance above to the book. The co-relation chart (with black background) is that based on cycles? Is it based on a particular system or type of analysis? Eg. Terry Laundry?

            Thanks,

            • ZigZag
              October 4, 2012

              Hi Rezito,

              That one is a pricing pattern that I found by looking at highs and lows in equal distance. It’s a lot like what George Lindsay used to do.

  59. apanalis
    October 3, 2012

    Zig Zag, i bet some weeks ago that around 13.000 DOW are short in ETF. That implies wait the time to result the falling mov. I´m waiting for the Industrials about -30% +- for 2013.

    I closed my shortsposicions in DOG and DNO 4th june and i expected DOW around 13.000, finally it peak 600 points above.

    If the Industrials peaks again, your position w´d be short?

    Which is your target?

    Mine is at least 9.000 DOW, you know.

    First, 11.500-12.000

    Thanks a lot from St. Sebastian, north Spain.

    • ZigZag
      October 3, 2012

      Apanalis, if the INDU peaks again I plan to short it. The next peak cycle hits around the 9th so I’m waiting to see how things develop.

      I only follow time and I’m never sure on price. 9,000 would be good 🙂

  60. curiousmind
    October 3, 2012

    Looks like Anthony’s call of high into Oct 4 might be in play. But the whipsaws are taking stops from both sides also…if Oct 4 is high, does that mean we go lower into Oct 9-12??

    • ZigZag
      October 3, 2012

      Hi curiousmind,

      Oct 9-12 should be the next peak and I think it will hit lower than the Sept 14th high.

      • curiousmind
        October 3, 2012

        We have been just going sideway since the Sep 25 reversal. Do you still expect to see some kind of low into Oct 4?

        • ZigZag
          October 3, 2012

          Correlation has it as a low and that’s kind of what I’ve been expecting it to be for a while now. I never know for sure until the day they hit and I like to see a big move in price on the date. It’s basically a spot where a price reversal is likely happen.

          I’m really more interested in next week than anything else right now.

      You might be right. Been following oil for a long time. Got a good short higher looking for a long slow down. This quick short down from 100 was too quick looks more like a correction to a higher move. I’m out of oil for now. bottoms are a little hard to pick.

      • quynhunguyen
        October 3, 2012

        Hey Tfinavia – I have my stop at 32.39 though, if SLV falls below that, then it’s heading down near term before heading up. $32.40 was its daily cycle low last Wed., oil has already moved below its low last Wed., so there’s a possibility SLV may follow suit. 3 years from now, SLV should triple though. God does bless !

        • tfinavia
          October 3, 2012

          Hey man, Oil shows a preview. Why chase SLV for a small reward from here?

          • quynhunguyen
            October 3, 2012

            I actually bought it near the low last Wed., so I’ve got some room before the stop. Oil is trying to reach its intermediate cycle low, where SLV has already reached its daily cycle low last week, so they’re not really in the same cycle. If SLV gets to 36 next week like I think, that’s 10%, big enough for me to let it work. Honor the stops though.

        I don’t follow any pivots and only look at cycle alignments. Although, I guess you could call them pivots. There is potential for price reversal tomorrow. Today is supposed to be up and tomorrow down, so I just do a little fishing today
        while I wait and see what happens tomorrow. 🙂

    zig zag, consider US enter in recession in the end of 2013, new highs in 2013?, I bet, new lows, 1st in may13, after, double bottom in summer- you can see platy signals about it? target at least 9.000, -0,618 from march09 to spt12?, always in the Industrials.

    3 years is the top in this icreases- about 100% in the Industrials in this cycle roofs, 17 years from 2000.

    If you see your path chart, new lows in november12, and can you show us the continuation of the chart?

    15dec12 trouble day and 21st worst.

      Hi apanalis,

      I’m hesitant to show it going out that far because these things only have so much time before they flip and follow a new time frame.

      I agree with what you are saying. It’s getting a bit long in tooth. Thanks.

        Hi,
        I know you have posted a link to your forecast chart a few times before that shows the Oct 4th low and Oct 9th high and then down into November etc…

        Is there a permanent place that we can see this chart on this site since I feel bad asking you for the link again?

        Thank you Zig.

      That wouldn’t surprise me 🙂

      I can usually nail down the general direction, but it’s the path it takes which can be difficult at times.

      It’s possible it could be the 5th if we see a huge up on Friday. Weeklies are hitting Oct 9th, so it can really be anytime next week. Most of my stuff is hitting closer to a Oct, 9,10,11 window, with emphasis on the 9th.

    • ZigZag
      October 2, 2012

      Hi Phantom,

      My plan is to buy this potential dip around election time. The forecast going forward depends on what the market does between now and the election. If we selloff to the election then I believe we see new highs late next year, if we don’t, then I think we’ll see a major down move in 2013.

      For now, my focus is on that October 9th area.

      • mike
        October 1, 2012

        I understand but on the channel, we are right in the middle. it could go either way. I would have thought you would have shorted around spx 1453 or buy spx 1430. Not sure if there is an edge right here.

        • Anthony
          October 1, 2012

          Mike if theres no decent risk reward i wont enter. There are smaller channels with the larger channels suggesting that my risk is 4. My upside is 12-15pts. Plus the gain from the short offsets the risk of this long so its kind of a free trade.

          Havent seen you around for a while?

    Ok im going to throw a cat amongst the pigeons here.

    Yesterday futures intraday reached about 1423. At this point i was still holding shorts so i moved my stop down and was doing quite nicely. By the end of the Aussie session i had given back most of my gains and exited at a small profit. The long and short of it is that my roadmap is showing up into 4/5 October. I think yesterday was a stealth low.

    I have a buy order at 1444.16

    If we do head down to 1414-1405 ill buy for a high into 9-10 October. Im just trading my roadmap time chart on the off chance the market threw a curveball.

    October 1, 2012

    In light of today’s action, today might have been the high and we decline into Thursday, sort of what Karen is saying, ZZ’s low on Oct 4 might just play out…so I am assuming DX should strengthen for the next 2 days before reversing again, possibly hitting the top of Platy’s DX channel at around 80.3ish. Gold and silver tried to break out but fell back, could silver have topped out today?

    Nice pullback today, so the bearish scenario on my chart is still in play, we could see a low on 3rd, could spill over to the morning of the 4th…

        Hi Testy,

        We’re still below our projected high on the 25th. If short, then that’s where a stop should be. It’s possible the 4th will be a double bottom before a push to the 9th.

        I tend to look further out in time, so I’m probably not the best one for short term guidance. I’m more interested in Oct 9th than anything else right now..

      Hi Pindar,

      The correlation has Oct 2nd and Oct 4th as lows and I think it’s Oct 4th that will be the low before we see a peak around the 9th. For a quick trade, I would buy half if we’re down on the 2nd, then wait and see what the 4th does.

        Hi ZigZag,

        Thank you for your great charts. I would like to offer my take on what I am looking for. Please take it for what it’s worth, but I believe we need to go down a little tomorrow to finish a down wave and then we head up until possibly Oct 4 you turn date, with a final bigger wave C down which could finish a zigzag at around 141 or so. Thank you again everyone for a constructive exchange of ideas. Good luck guys

          Hi Tom_27,

          That could happen as well. I just look at the cycles in relation to correlation and do my best to find the most probable path.

          Thanks 🙂

    One chart that I had showed a bounce into the 4th and then down into 5/8th, so I was assuming the turn on Monday was up, and then down into Thurs/Friday, but the days can be shifted…so not extremely accurate, but now the bounce into the 4th makes sense.

    Because my other chart shows that the turn on Monday is down into the 3rd, with a bounce on the 4th, then back down into the 5th to what looks like a lower low….which now makes sense with ZZ’s charts and dates…

      Hi Karen, so you’re saying the 1st chart is inverted and it’s now down mon-wed, bounce thursday and back down Friday ? Pretty much like last week then.

      If that’s the case, Anthony and even Platy spx target look very possible

    AAPL…significant negative divergence between price (although it is not shown it was higher recently then it was in the spring) and the weekly trend indicator (orange/blue) which has turned down…histogram (gold) is negative…pivot (green) signaled a sell…two cycle indicators (blue and pink) are negative…good luck with your trading…
