A close tomorrow beneath 24,698 will confirm the prior lower Targets I have posted.
We failed the .618, we failed the .500. 25308 traded, but failed. 25741 – the key pivot I posted earlier today – failed. 25K is now 1,000 points above and we’re not going back there any time soon.
Today’s close barely made it back up and over 23920 @ 23953 but opens the door for the Weekly @ 23248.
We are at risk of trading to that target tomorrow. Today’s 1128 point swing amply demonstrates the Bots are in control.
19,678 will open as the next deep extension low should we trade to or below 23248.
Ideally TIME would present this low very quickly, possibly prior to March…
Closing today below the top of the Lower Weekly Channel @ 24,441 was a serious warning we are heading lower. Should Price trade the bottom of the channel – then we will see the 22,440.
After that, look out below as the FEBRUARY / March 2017 lows opens up.
I don’t believe so – the Octopus frankly has only one way out to keep order.
Of course, there’s always chaos…
We should have a temporary low in by March.
Then, Rally into May where we should experience some sort of odd and unexpected exogenous event – a Black Swan of some sort… something outside of conventional financial events.
Time lines up then.
I have no inclinations as to what it would be.
It is simply Time by my methodology.
Afterward, once the dust settles – we’ll begin to see a doubling of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
We would need to fail 19,784 and then 16,011 for there to be extended economic crack up and something none of us would care for or participate within.
I tend towards favoring the Crack Up Boom continuing with no shortage of Bumps and Bruises along the way.
Fortunately, I’m old enough; when the failing systems fall part – dust to the wind.
