SP500 weekly finished marginally up this week. The flow of bad news continues, but at a slowing pace, to pour out of Europe and Washington. Extreme optimism is usually dominant at or near market tops. The MACD remains pointed down – bearish for several weeks to come as we mentioned before. We continue down the road of primary wave 3 down. There are two channel support lines that need to be broken to confirm wave 3 down – one down, one yet still remaining. As well, the 8 period moving average remains pointed down – bearish. We should see a turn back down going into the end of the year. A bigger drop should occur in January. We are keeping an eye out on the October 2007 formation for “fractal similarities”.
