Short-Term Forecast For Tuesday, October 27

Stock Market Commentary

We are 2 sessions into the beta phase decline of the cycle that began on September 24.

The magnitude and duration of the last alpha phase rally suggest that short-term direction is in question. An extended beta phase decline that moves below the last short-term low at 3,226 would reconfirm that current bearish short-term trend and forecast additional losses. Alternatively, a quick rebound followed by an extended alpha phase rally would signal the likely transition to a bullish short-term trend.

Cycle Analysis

We are 2 sessions into the beta phase decline of the cycle following the short-term cycle low (STCL) on September 24. The magnitude and duration of the last alpha phase rally suggest that short-term direction is in question. An extended beta phase decline that moves below the last STCL at 3,226 would reconfirm that current bearish translation and forecast additional losses. Alternatively, a quick rebound followed by an extended alpha phase rally would signal the likely transition to a bullish translation. The window during which the next STCL is likely to occur is from November 3 to November 23, with our best estimate being in the November 9 to November 13 range.
