Start to Build up a Domed House

The broad stock market just had a bullish reversal in the “Basement” phase of my speculated “Three Peaks and a Domed House” pattern. A swift advance should be expected to start building up a “Domed House”. The current short-term bullish time-window should support the advance towards the “First Floor” phase until 12/5/2012.

Bullish Reversal

The LWX Indicator in Last Four Weeks (Actual)

The LWX Indicator in Next Four Weeks (Forecast)

The broad market had a sharp rebound last week. The Broad Market Instability Index (BIX), measured from over 8000 U.S. stocks, closed at 5 (down from 159 the previous week) which is below the panic threshold level of 44. Based on the forecast of the Leading Wave Index (LWX), the short-term bullish time-window for the broad stock market should continue until 12/5/2012 (see the second table above). The daily chart of the Wilshire 5000 index below has the price bars color coded with the LWX indicator. The current market status is summarized as follows:

Short-Term Cycle: up-swing
Next Reversal Date: 12/5/2012
Broad Market Instability Index (BIX): 5, below the panic threshold (bullish)
Momentum Indicator: positive (bullish)



The S&P 500 Index in a Swift Advance Towards the “First Floor” Phase

The S&P 500 formed a three-peak pattern inside the trading range from September to October. It could be the beginning of a “Three Peaks and a Domed House” formation. In speaking of “the Three Peaks and a Domed House” pattern, my version modified from George Lindsay’s basic model uses a macro or “phase-counting” approach which is different from Lindsay’s original micro approach (which uses “wave-counting” from 1 to 28) in that it divides the “Three Peaks and the Domed House” pattern into five major phases as follows: 1) Three Peaks, 2) Basement, 3) First Floor, 4) Roof, and 5) Plunge.

The downwave of the S&P 500 index between 10/18/2012 and 11/15/2012 was a “Separating Decline” for a transition from the “Three Peaks” phase to the “Basement” phase. Typically the Basement phase is known as “the bear trap” with an integration of all bearish views from both headline news and majority of popular technical indicators. After the “Basement” phase is well established, it starts to build up a “Domed House”. A swift advance should be seen to form a front wall of the “First Floor” phase. The current swift advance of the SPX could reach the level of 1460 to re-test previous high.



Chinese Stock Market Rebound from Multi-Year Low

The Chinese stock market reached the multi-year low near 2000 again last week. It is forming a 4-month horizontal channel which is a trading range between 2000 and 2150. It should find a support from 2000 and starts an upward swing inside the trading range.



Gold is in the “Run” Phase of a Bump-and-Run Reversal Top Pattern

The gold index has been in an intermediate-term Bump-and-Run Reversal Top pattern since I identified this pattern on gold in my article “How Low Can Gold Go on a Correction?” last August. Currently the gold price is below the “Lead-in Trendline” and it is in the “Run” phase. It looks like that it has found a support near 1675.



Gold in a 6-Month Bullish Uptrend Channel

The gold index is possibly forming a 6-month uptrend channel. After it declined from the upper channel line to the lower channel line, it had a bullish reversal on 11/5/2012.



Silver in a 6-Month Bullish Uptrend Channel

The silver index is possibly forming a 6-month uptrend channel. After it declined from the upper channel line to the lower channel line, it had a bullish reversal on 11/5/2012.



Gold/Silver Mining Stocks in a 6-Month Bullish Uptrend Channel

Gold/silver mining stocks had a sharp rebound last week. Now they are forming a 6-month uptrend channel.



Crude Oil Bullish Breakout from a 3-Month Falling Wedge

Crude oil had a bullish breakout from a 3-month falling wedge. An upside price target is projected at 92.



US Dollar in 15-Month Uptrend Channel

The US dollar index still maintains a 15-month uptrend channel, as long as it stays above the lower support line of the channel.



U.S. Treasury Bond is in a Long-Term Bullish Uptrend

As I discussed on 6/4/2012 about “Is this a Sea-Change Signal from U.S. Treasury Bond Breakout?”, a long-term picture shows that the 30-Year US Treasury Bond had a bullish breakout from the warning line and entered into the bump phase of a possible “Bump-and-Run” formation. In the bump phase, sharp price movement could drive prices reach a bump height with at least twice the height of the lead-in uptrend channel. That means the 30-year U.S. treasury bond could reach to 172 in next several months. We will keep monitoring the bond price against the steep-upward-sloping trendline (the pike line).
