April 1st, 2021: SP-500 Chart Update

Posted by pugsma on April 1, 2021

4:20 pm EST: The SP-500 gapped up from 3973 to 3992, rallied all day to close on the high at 4019 (now all-time closing high).

Market Technical Notes: 

  1. NYMO: The NYMO closed up from -5 to near +20.  Will need to see NYMO closes back above the zero, then multiple closes above +20 before the primary (white/green) count minor 3 of major [5] wave higher to be can be confirmed. 
  2. VIX: The VIX closed down -10.7% at 17.33. So far the VIX has failed to drop be 20 and remain there. A string of VIX closes below 20 would be indicative of a potential grinding minor 3 of of major [5] wave higher per the primary (white/green) count.
  3. Chart PatternPotential Bull Flag between 3985 and 3854 with a target of 4114.
  4. NYSE A-D Line Cumulative: The A-D line closed up significantly today and is just slightly below the level of its all-time high when the SP500 closed at 3976 on March 17th.  This remains a potential negative divergence and is warning sign that the alternate (blue) count could prevail. The A-D line has been in down-trend since March 17th. Will need to see the A-D make a new all-time high along with the SP-500 to confirm the primary (white/green) wave count.

Seasonality: Aligns with a minor 2 of major [5] low at 3854 here at the end of March and big rally for minor 3 of major [5] into the end of May, then a minor 4 pull-back in June and finally another rally for minor 5 of major [5] into August.

SP500 Seasonality

The primary (white/green) wave count is that minor 2 of major [5]-P1-C3 wave completed at 3854, which was a precise 50% Fibonacci retracement. The minor 3 wave up is just getting started with a target of 1.62*minor at 4277. Within the minor 3 wave, the minute (1) should quickly target the 4114 area (bull flag target). This minute (1) wave up should produce a new NYSE A-D Line Cumulative all-time high plus an NYMO closes above +20 and confirm the primary (white/green) count. The major [5]=0.78[1] target for the completion of P1 is at 4535. Note: The primary (white/green) count as labeled remains valid above the 3854 low.

The alternate (blue) count that major [3]-P1-C3 is completing a bearish ending diagonal here near the major [3]=[1] target of 4007. The major [4] target area is the 23%/38% from 4007 at 3767/3611. Note: A break of the recent 3854 low will confirm the alternate (blue) count.

House Keeping: The US Markets are closed for the Easter Holiday on Friday, April 2nd. The next blog post will be on Monday, April 5th.

Have a great 3-day weekend !
