Major Indexes Shakeout at the Lows in Stage 4 and the US Stocks Watchlist – 22 May 2022
The full post is available to view by members only. For immediate access:
Friday produced a potential shakeout move in the major US stock markets (i.e. the S&P 500, Nasdaq Composite and Russell 2000) with a failed breakdown attempt and monthly options expiry potentially playing a role, with the price action closing between the maximum pain levels for both puts and calls. See http://maximum-pain.com/option... for reference on the SPY etf for example. But options is not an area that I dabble in. So I'd recommend further research from expert sources on the subject.
So although all the major markets remain in Stage 4 on the weekly timescale. We have the first few events of a new potential base structure developing in many, with Fridays action as a potential Secondary Test (ST). So short term expectation would be for a bounce within the range into Phase B of the structure. But if that fails to materialise. Then the Stage 4 decline could move into deeper territory. So extreme caution remains prudent on any rally attempt.

Market Breadth: New Highs - New Lows
The new lows levels in the NYSE and Nasdaq Composite remain elevated and the New Highs - New Lows cumulative chart remains in a strong Stage 4 decline since early December 2021, and is a long way below its own 50 day MA which is used as the signal line, and hence could take many months change back to a postive status – which would take a dramatic uptick in the amount of new highs and relative drop off in new lows back below the 100 level on each individual chart – which it's only been below a few times since November 2021.
