Lindsay: 12-Year Interval
The failure of the 15-year interval high (counted from the 9/21/01 low) to appear on time does not mean the bulls are out of the woods yet.
Stocks: Top This Week
Cycles pointing to a low near August 21 were successful. We now have cycles and Lindsay models pointing to a high this week.
The Sell-Off In Equities Should Find A Bottom
Cycles warn that the sell-off in equities during the last two weeks should find a bottom this week – temporarily.
Stocks: Intermission
A 21-week cycle low is due the week of August 21. Unless equities reach the 38.2% retracement of the 2016 rally, I doubt that will be the end of the decline. It will likely be the beginning of an intermediate bounce in a bigger seasonal decline.
Market Correction
A basic advance is the equivalent of a cyclical bull market. A basic decline is usually the equivalent of a cyclical bear market but may not always reach the arbitrary 20% sell-off used by the media to define such a decline.
Was Friday The "Big Day"?
The low on 10/15/14 counts 484 days to the low of the basic cycle on 2/11/16. 484 days later is June 9. This is not a middle section forecast. Rather, it is a low-low-high interval.
