Some similarities with 1987

>>Ned, Sad to hear Whipsaw is no more.I liked him for his cool Temprament and his ability to count waves.His fellow boarders Wally and Slarti will always remember him. Posted by: Mark | Sunday, June 28, 2009 at 06:57 AM

Yes, it is sad he's gone. He and I had many a converstion over the years. Wally and Slarti, what a pair.
>>Ned,Sad to hear that Whipsaw died last year. How did you know that?
I recalled he went through a major surgery of some cancer last year.
Even though we never met but merely talked over the net, it is really sad to hear that. davidantony

He never had the surgery, it had gotten too big to be operated on. He finally died from the cancer. I knew he was getting very weak, then one day I get an email from his wife. She said he wanted her to stay in touch with me. I could probably find the obituary if your interested.


is there anyway to set
this page so that when
a link is clicked on
it opens into a new
window? i have seen
other sites set their
pages that way.


joe granville did extensive
work on stock prices and
volume. he is the creator
of on balance volume (OBV).
what he found was that in
a bull market rally
the volume on
a daily or weekly bar chart
increased and during the
corrections it decreased.
the opposite occured in bear
markets. this is what has
occured since the march
lows the volume is decreasing
as granville said it would
in a correction during a
bear market rally. as granville
said on many occasions
volume precedes price.


Ned,Sad to hear that Whipsaw died last year.I missed those guys in eliottwave analysis forum and your site.



Thanks for the info.

It just reminds me one more time that life is really short and unpredictable... that while we all try hard to make money, count waves etc., it is GOOD HEALTH that counts the most in the end for everybody, rich or poor!

Apple CEO?


With the exception of the few out and out bulls, who don't appear to articulate a reason in terms of Wave Theory as to why they are bulls, most of the folks commenting here seem to agree that the current uptrend from the March lows is corrective. However, there seems to be significant uncertainty if the June 11 top is it, or not.

Even if the top is in, can't a further "irregular" high occur, or not at this juncture?

It would seem that there ought to be, but maybe just isn't, a tandem approach to Elliott's rules that answers the question WHEN. McHugh's phi mate signals are suggestive of something like this, but they don't appear to tell the end of a particular trend. From a straight timing perspective, I am under the impression that tradable turns often occur at either .618, 1.0 or 1.618 in time from a clear impulse wave, suggesting some sort of rule of alternation at work. More subtlely, the end of a swing seems to be related via fibonacci ratios (and some lesser known ratios) to the time of the prior trend. But it is a surprisingly complex study. For example, 1.618 of the Dow's 2000 to 2002 trend projects near to the March 2007 low. I think that this was a pre-signal to the pending top, even though it hit a preceeding correction on the next scale down rather than the final high.

I don't know Neely's work well enough to know whether he covers this territory, but given the current uncertainty as to where we are just now, there must be more to be understood.

There was many a heavy duty discussion, wasn't there.

It's interesting to see all these folks coming out and conveying sympathy.

Where is NEELY seems his PANTS GEELY(WET) !! and some here on the BLOG are busy drying it

Account Deleted

One more case of stoplosses getting triggered.Shameless Fellow still isnt ashamed of calling himself the master of ELLIOT WAVE.


One way or another, Neely is going to look like a genius or a big fool. The golden crosses that are occuring in most indexes, should give the bears reason to worry. Bob P. was predicting lows to 3000 or lower in 2003 right when the golden crosses were getting close. When they did confirm, the market just continued to move up in wave 5 as Bob P. continued his bearish stand.
I certainly can't say I'm bullish at this point, but both the bulls and bears should be careful at this juncture. One of them is going to get burned badly, with 1100 in sight or a break to new lows by the end of the year!!!

vipul garg

i expect markets to make a top today /tomorrow price wise (which will not be exceeded for long time) and meander for a few days and then produce a confirmation decline .(hopefully!)
in all cases we should be heading to 825 or lower levels.
VB, neely is very much kicking.unmarried to a position . and very much short.

>i donot understand the technique (fork) you use ,so you ll have to explain , if posiible in someother way!

Forks are built based on Elliott Wave pivots yet EW pivots identified using forks. It's kinda chicken-egg paradox. there are trend forks and countertrend forks. They help identify fractal patterns. Fork takes notion of support & resistance from 1-dimentional horizontal level to its true 2-dimentional level. also in most cases you replace Fibonacci targets with fork targets(median line & other 2 channel lines).

vipul garg

serge, so you are saying that indian index is above the median line and close to the topping zone-channel line.?
also how do you draw the median line..from the lows or?

$SPX & Indicators update
Possible complex Head & Shoulders on $SPX. With upcoming Lunar & Solar eclipses we sure could see some fireworks. Our NYMOlogyst indicator looks like set a cycle low. It is remotely possible it is doing another "hump&dump" but as far as I remember there was no more than 2 "hump&dumps" per cycle and we already had 2. Original $NYMO is also rising above 0 and today rests against downtrend resistance. There is an interesting divergence between $TCP & $ECP (Total Call/Put & Equities Call/Put) Ratios. Total is already up while equity is still hanging at recent low. NYSI looks like trying to reverse, there was no cross on MACD yet, so keeping an eye on this one. Our tops\bottoms indicator set very interesting pattern - it looks like late August 2008 spike top on STO (highlighted in yellow). Our No 1 tops indicator still looks good, the only reservations I have it's not as smooth going down as previous instances in May 2008 or January 2009. $BPSPX went flat, no cross on MACD yet. It look like we're at around January 21, 09 lows.

Do not agree with EWFF's wave count. As usual, theirs is a very rigid Elliott Wave view.

You say, if 6/11 is exceeded, "a lot of bulls will come out of the woods and proclaim a new bull market?"

Looks to me they're out in force already. Now, they've got this 'Golden Cross' on the S&P 500 ( Their bullish outlook hinges on past instances of the GC when we were likewise in recession.

Trouble is we're not in recession. Physical reality (as opposed to delusional fantasy) finds economic activity continuing to collapse, while faith is waning big time (isn't that right, Mr. Issa?) in the buyer of last resort. This is no recession. It is a death march.

anon_aka_TERA BAAP

i enjoyed another GREEN UP Day..while you bears continue being FORCED to cover their Painful SHORTS...or get STOPPED out REPEATEDLY like NEELY!!


now you bear clowns please take a look at the VIX making NEW LOW touching LOWEST level since Septmeber 2008 !!

Bears are completely finished..the BULL is in Complete control..

DG -- HOW is your repeated Shorting attempts following your HERO NEELY working out for you?

YVES are u still expecting BIG Crash because of LIQUID index??


anon. Shut your mouth, idiot.  Shit comes out.

anon_aka_TERA BAAP

enjoy your DUMB luck while it lasts.

Shut your mouth, idiot. Shit comes out.


prechter was on the cnbc show
the kudlow report this
evening. i am sure they have
the video on the cnbc website
if you would like to watch a
rebroadcast of this.
prechter said after a small
pull back he expects the dow
industrial average to go to
10000. he mentioned this was
a bear market rally because
of the weak volume since
the march bottom. he made
his case for deflation and
gold not performing well.
it should be interesting to
see if neeley or prechter
is correct in the coming months.

Mike McQuaid

S&P500 trend is up. My model outlines wave 3 should traverse 1000 near July 9. Wave 2 was labeled June 23 off of the March 6 reversal.

Mike McQuaid

XLF Financials are uptrending too. XLF tagged a 25% retracement of the March - May rally and is moving up. Resistance at 12.67 and 13.08 are only a matter of time until wave 3 claims them and puts them in the rear view mirror.


TC, your tinyurl didn't work .. yes the bulls never really went away did they?

In the near term the market is still ambiguous; STU tonight noted that although Dow went up, Naz faded a bit, and hence we still have a divergence among major indexes. Hence a pullback is still likely before the Final Surge to Dow10K.

But it is clear we are not in a recession but a depression. John Mauldin's recent newsletter highlighted an analysis which showed we are dropping in global markets (trade, GDP, stocks) about what we did in 1930. One thing to watch for is a W shaped depression, where the stimulus pops a small GDP positive quarter in Q4 or Q1.

This is one reason I believe we have a rally into late August, followed by a sharp drop, but then another rally in the Spring of 2010 before we truly hit the wall in late 2010.


DG -- HOW is your repeated Shorting attempts following your HERO NEELY working out for you?

I have to admit that it isn't as fun as the pretend trading you appear to do.

As I have said repeatedly, risk management is the long-term key to trading success. I see nothing in any of your posts to indicate that you understand this or practice it, so I wouldn't expect you to understand why getting stopped out with small losses is something that professional traders have happen all the time.

As I said to VB the other day, unless and until the June 11th top is surpassed, Neely is technically correct that the market has topped and that until that happens all bullish statements are just noise.



I don't know if this is happening to everyone, but the blog's formatting is all messed up. HTML tags appear to be disabled and the order of the comments is reversed, with the newest ones now first. Just an FYI, in case you hadn't noticed.


DG, html urls in comments work for me, which browser are you using?

As to order, yes it is reversed due to some private requests. I can switch it back. Is this easier to follow (newest on top) or the old way?



I do find reading the posts scrolling down more intuitive, but, hey, if others have asked for the new format, I don't mind.

I use Firefox. What I have not been able to do lately is use the tags to italicize someone else's words and set them off from my reply. That's what I mean by HTML tags not working.

da bear


are you expecting a top soon, say within the next few weeks?

da bear

Forkoholic Serge | Elliott Wave Forkology

da bear,
I think 6/11 top should hold for now.
yet cycle low on NYMO suggests we may hit low
and comparison with 87 also may suggest top is in
also found this cycle projection - looks like from the Foundation of cycles.

Also check this BPSPX pattern comparison

It is also a perfect spot for W4 to end on monthly $SPX

I would also appreciate switch back to former page format as I read from orginal start of the ideas and then comments which follow them.
