Short-Term Forecast For Thursday, May 7

We are 12 sessions into the beta phase rally of the short-term cycle that began on March 24. The beta high (BH) of the current cycle may have formed on April 29. A close below 2,815 on the S&P 500 index during the next session would generate a cycle high signal and indicate that the beta phase decline of the current cycle is likely in progress.

An extended beta phase decline that moves below the last short-term cycle low (STCL) at 2,191 would reconfirm the current bearish trend and forecast additional losses. Alternatively, an extended beta phase rally that moves well above the last alpha high (AH) at 2,875 would signal the likely transition to a bullish short-term trend.

Cycle Analysis

We are 12 sessions into the beta phase rally of the cycle following the short-term cycle low (STCL) on March 23. The beta high (BH) may have formed on April 29. A close below 2,815 during the next session would generate a cycle high signal and indicate that the beta phase decline is likely in progress. A quick reversal followed by an extended beta phase decline that moves below the last STCL at 2,191 would reconfirm the current bearish translation and forecast additional losses. Alternatively, an extended beta phase rally that moves well above the last alpha high (AH) at 2,875 would signal the likely transition to a bullish translation. The window during which the next STCL is likely to occur is now through May 22, with our best estimate being in the May 14 to May 18 range.
