US Stock Markets - Important Seasonal High Nearby

by Antonis Benis, on Sep 1, 2020 3:41:00 PM

The stock markets have risen relentlessly higher since March, driven by the FANGs and tech stocks. S&P’s forward P/E ratio (27) has reached levels last seen at the highs of the dot com bubble, i.e. very expensive. At the same time, we are approaching a seasonal high, related with the US elections, that calls for a rolling top starting this week followed by a correction into October – November (see chart 1, presidential election cycle).

  • Advance/Decline line topped on August 12th, showing strong divergence to S&P now; i.e. not confirming the new highs (see chart 2)

S&P (spot) resistance at 3578/3620, more confident with this one; for Nasdaq 100 (fut.) 12237/12360 and the 3x3 c Gann angle, may get exceeded (see charts 3,4,5)

Nasdaq 100 GANN Analysis


An important, if not major, top must be nearby; it should take place later this week or early next week at the latest (September 7th is labor day) and maybe mark the high for the year.

Investors are advised to take some money off the table, the gains have been tremendous. Traders should be looking for shorting opportunities; risk and time window are well defined.
