Yesterday I ran this post which included a one-answer poll about who Slopers thought would be elected next year President. I tried to stress they should vote for who they thought would win, but I’ve got a hunch most folks were “talking their book” and voted for who they wanted to win. Anyway, here are the results. Let’s see how it turns out 365 days from now!
As I was saying in my last post, SPX should be back into an upwards cycle by the end of October and that would be likely to end by the end of November. SPX has duly now made new all time highs and is likely to go higher. Let’s have a look at the most obvious target area.
On SPX the initial rising wedge from the 2346 low is likely expanding into a larger rising wedge. Rising wedge support is now therefore in the 2915 area. The obvious overall target would then be the original rising wedge resistance, now in the 3110 area, and due to be in the 3130 area by the end of November. I would note the interesting fibonacci relationship here, in that if you take the move from the December low to the June low, and then add the same again to the June low, then the sum is 3111, which strengthens this area as a swing high target.
In other corporate scandal news, the CEO of McDonald’s was apparently indulging in too much special sauce from a fellow employee, so he has been directed toward the Exit door. In spite of the overall market being at lifetime highs (a daily occurrence), McDonald’s is down about 15% from its price peak.
