After a good rally last week the USA market, Thanks to the
two gap up openings early in the week, and no surprises from the FED
or Q1 GDP. For the week the SPX/DOW
were +0.95%, the NDX/NAZ were +1.35%, and the DJ World index was +1.10%.
Economic reports for the week remained positive. On the up tick: pending homes
sales, ADP, Chicago PMI,
personal income/spending, PCE, ISM manufacturing, construction spending, auto
sales, Payrolls, factory orders, and the WLEI. On the downtick: Case-Shiller,
the monetary base, and weekly jobless claims rose. Next week we get reports on
ISM services and Consumer credit, plus Congressional testimony from FED
chair Yellen on Wednesday.
Short term support is at the 1869 and 1841 pivots, with
resistance at the 1901 and 1929 pivots. Short term momentum ended the week
heading lower after a negative divergence. The short term OEW charts remain
positive with the reversal level now SPX 1879.
From the recent potential downtrend low at SPX 1814 we
counted five waves up to 1885, and labeled that Minor wave 1. Then after a
complex double three pullback to SPX 1851, which we labeled Minor 2, the market
has rallied to a higher high at SPX 1891. This recent rally also looks like
five waves up, but of a smaller degree (Minute wave). We counted the advance
from SPX 1851: 1880-1871-1889-1880-1891.
After that high, around 10:30
Friday, the market pulled back to SPX 1879. Notice it found support around the
4th wave (1880). Also note, the shortest wave during this last rally was the
fifth wave. When this occurs sometimes the market pulls back to the previous
second wave (1871). So a continued pullback to the OEW 1869 pivot would not be
anything unusual. For now, we are labeling the SPX 1891 high as Minute wave one
of Minor 3, and will wait to see where Minute wave two bottoms. Until SPX 1891
is exceeded we can not be certain that Minute two has ended.
