When the elephants dance it’s the ants who suffer.  Investors and traders headed for cover as Trump and the Chinese danced their kabuki dance.  We did too, completely flattening our positions.  But…but…what about our positions?  We can always buy them back, higher or lower but paper losses don’t appeal to us.

After an eventful and volatile week the consequences are to be seen but are not obvious.  An important long term trendline has been broken.  And, with very minor number manipulation, (from high to low) the wave is 4%.  Long time readers will remember (or not)  that one system that professionals  pay attention to and sometimes use is the 4% system.  Where a 4% move in a week causes an entry or exit signal.  This, combined with the trendline break flashes a large yellow caution light over the market.  We will be watching closely for confirmation.  With Trump running a kabuki trade war  extreme volatility and false signals are to be expected.

And will.

The power of this wave is illustrated here. The horizontal line is resistance and as you can see that resistance has stopped price many times.  Two reactions here mark minor and major wave highs.  The implications of this first recovery wave are great.  Technicians believe and have observed that the first wave in a new series has predictive implications –using the rule of seven  (http://www.edwards-mageee.com/ggu/ruleofseven.pdf).  This procedure generates several targets– in this case the first two are 3164 and 3434.  From the recently important level of 2800 these may be intimidating, and we do not present them as predictions or forrecasts, but as the products of the procedure.
