US Stock Markets Update

Stock markets are following seasonality loyally lately. It suggests a bottom on December 2nd, a top on December 9th followed by a correction into December 15th and 20th, followed by the rally into the first half of January (presidential election cycle, see chart 1).

NYSE Advance/Decline line is still making new highs, no divergence there.
S&P registered a daily sell setup on Monday, started a correction. Dow 30 finally reached the major Gann resistance level at 30142/30276, mentioned in my last report (see chart 2).
Any downside now, needs to hold around the lower Keltner channel to be constructive.

TD monthly sell setup for the S&P at 7, Nasdaq 100 has a qualified monthly sell setup 9.
Put/call ratio at record low levels; in the past this kind of readings led to corrections/consolidations in the markets; market sentiment at extremes.
I made a monthly chart of S&P 500 500, using only major long term cycles (3+ years). It tends to catch the bottoms accurately, however the suggested tops are premature. Still, I do expect a major top in the first quarter of 2021 and a major buying opportunity in the third quarter of 2022 (see chart 3). For now, positive seasonality, starting next week, is hard to ignore/bet against it.
This is the last post for this year, next one will be in the first week of January. I wish you a wonderful holiday and happy new year.
