Amazon, Apple, and Google Celebrate This Anniversary Tomorrow

Print comment Post Comments
Tomorrow is the anniversary of the crash low on November 21, 2008.
This was when many key stocks like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) made lows. Many foreign markets made lows at that time as well.
I can’t help but wonder with Apple forming a tight pennant formation since its Key Reversal Day on November 29 if Apple may be carving out a high, having come within 1% of a 50% retrace at 545 of the 705-to-385 decline. Interestingly, on the Square of 9 Wheel, this 320-point range aligns with November 28 (plus or minus one week of the 5-year anniversary of the November 21 low). Squaring the range, 320 vibrates off November 29.
Daily AAPL Chart from April 2012 to Present:

So, the indication on the Square of 9 is that Apple should resolve its pennant into the end of November and that Apple's direction coming out of the pennant should be an important tell for the market.
I give a lot of weight to the 60-month cycle. Because this is a long cycle, it won't hit precisely on the anniversary.
For example, the big November 2012 low was a composite of two 60-month cycles. It was 120 months from the 2002 bear market low on October 9, 10, and 11 and 60 months from the October 9 through October 10 high in 2007.
The cycle skewed plus-one to the right, with the low hitting in November 2012. That said, there was a big pivot high in September 2012, which had several cycle watchers thinking a high was playing out.
Since the last occurrence of the 60-month cycle (and two occurences of the 60-month cycle) was a low, perhaps this time around, it will be a high.
But, it is worth considering that it could skew to the left again by a month, with the market holding up into year end. Perhaps after a shakeout, the market will take a sleigh ride back up.
Be that as it may, until this week, when many glamours took gas (the 3D stocks for example), it seemed a foregone conclusion by the vast majority of players that the expected Santa Claus rally would play out. Whenever there is a universality of opinion in the markets,  what everyone knows is usually not worth knowing.
