Anyone who has experienced the mutant teen knows that you haven’t lived until you’ve had one. The comic strip Zits nails the experience. Comic, tedious, enraging — even occasionally rewarding. And speaking of mutants a common pattern is spreading across many issues. Some of our very acute students have been looking for a Kilroy (reverse upside down sirsanana H&S) bottom in the major indices. Here we examine that question:
In TMW (and virtually identical in NYC) price is forming a congestion area in what would be the right shoulder (hand). Is that going to make a completed Kilroy here (assuming a valid breakout)? Could. In this case and in all the other cases that look like this — a whole raft of them.
Another way to look at this –and the other issues, because they all share the same market — is as an upwave response to the downwave that started in January. The rally is losing speed and is rounding over and the resistance here is just the first hurdle to a real bull trend. What is occurring here lately is either a reversal or continuation pattern. Remember that a sideways wave can substitute for a downwave. So this upwave may pause here and not create a downwave. A break down would imply a test of the recent low –which could be daunting.
