04/03/13 – Warning


4/03/13 . . . 

Not A FORMAL Sell . . . But An Alert For A Peak.

This could be a temporary peak and I am alert for this possibility, but at the moment, things have “kinda” fallen into place.  An extension is certainly possible but until that happens, I am on high alert.

Previously I was a cautious bull, cautious only because of the count.  Everything really looked good except for the extended and late count.  This warning could possibly be a false alarm.  Chicken Little, Chicken Little (been there done that).  The count on the following chart is ambiguous because the SPX chart shows a definite count of 3 and the ES chart shows a count of 4.  If the count is a 4, there will be another rally back to the prior highs.

The reason for the discrepancy between the SPX and the ES futures is the ES is open almost 24 hours per day and sometimes, more squiggles take place than the SPX.  Usually the ES count is quite clear but presently we have a problem.  I have relied on the ES to usually give the correct count.  The discrepancy is the reason why I haven’t issued a formal sell signal.  It’s simply a warning and everyone should takes a comfortable action or inaction.

Presently I’m watching for higher highs to signal a reversal of today’s correction.

I may write more later as things develop.


The first two charts are from Arthur Hill of StockCharts.

The first chart shows how the market has corrected each April after the March 2009 bottom.

The SPX (SP 500) has gone down a couple of points since March 15th (written on Monday).  The last couple of weeks the market appears to be going up but it’s actually going sideways.
