Was 1011 the Bottom?


"The rally points in the past 90 days have all been Fibonacci pivots."

The SP500 had a very interesting Fibonacci Intersection as I call it here at Market Trend Forecast on July 1st. At the 1011 pivot low, the index retraced a Fibonacci 38% of the 2010 highs from the 2009 lows and bottomed out. In addition, the 1011 pivot was a 38% upward retracement of the 2007 highs to the 2009 lows. How is it that markets can be considered "random" when in fact they often pivot at clearly defined Fibonacci price points?

Let's look at the April 2010 highs of 1221 on the same SP500 index. Did you know that was an exact 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the 2007 highs to the 2009 lows? Were you aware that back in late February 2009, I wrote an article on 321Gold predicting a move to about 1200 on the SP500, when we were 710 at the time? Did I have a crystal ball or something ephemeral to work with? No, in fact that was an educated guess for a 61% Fibonacci rally off a 5-wave decline into March 2009 is all. Even more fascinating is my work showing that at 666, the SP500 in fact stopped at an exact 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the 1974 lows to the 2000 highs! All of the top and bottom rally points in the past 90 days have been Fibonacci pivots.

The market is certainly not random in our views at TMTF, and we strive to pinpoint tops and bottoms using a combination of Elliott Wave theory and Fibonacci cycles, as well as time periods that often coincide. What is the market doing now after this rally off the July 1st lows? I think the major pivot point to watch is 1131 on the SP500 and our subscribers know exactly why. Perhaps today you will consider subscribing and avoid wondering what is happening at all these major pivot points? Recent pivots that we outlined were 1011, 1040, 1130, 1121 and more on the SP500 index for our subscribers.

Below I outline a 3𣛫 Elliott Wave Pattern that is often part of a "corrective wave" movement. If we can overlay Fibonacci pivots along with reliable patterns, it can help our subscribers avoid pitfalls and take advantage of opportunities in the markets. Gold recently exhibited clear patterns at a late June 2010 top we forecasted. The drop to 1155 was a "rally pivot" we told our readers, and the move up would likely take us as high as $1,212 an ounce before the next major move.
