Is The S&P Ready To Crash?
      Chaos Clinic for 8/18/2023

Last Friday I asked if the S&P was ready to rally? A two week chart suggested it could.
The market did rally on 8/14. I held a long overnight, intending to hold long all week.
Tuesday morning I found I had been stopped out for a modest gain. When I checked the news
I learned the decline was attributed to concerns about the Chinese economy. ??
So I looked at the longer term.

This six month daily chart of the S&P futures shows that the rally from March has topped.
I have labeled 7 moves in an up Chaos Clamshell. In the top right corner I have marked
the switch from bullish to bearish brought about by the China fears.

I've included the legend for the indicators. I use these setting on my 3 minute charts,
but find they work well on daily charts. Experience watching the intraday charts transfers
to the daily chart. For example, the curl down in the cyan 36 day EXMA is the same as the 110 minute
EXMA curling over on the intraday chart on

The rally lasted 3/8 of a year. An equal time down move would be December 9, 2023.
A 120 day down move would be October 24, 2023. This is reminiscent of 1987 when the
market topped in August and crashed October 19th. This could be interesting.

8/18/2023 6:36:52 AM MT Al****:: Good Morning visitors. Welcome to the Chaos Clinic. The written Chaos Clinic is on the AUX page.

This site has a lot of charts,
so you may find it useful to have several of them available within your
browser. If you have a tabbed browser, you can open separate charts
in separate tabs by right clicking on any link, and selecting "open in new tab"
from the menu. The main list of site pages is at
Recommended pages to watch are SPKISS, MTRainbow, and Chat.
For astro stuff, add SPSunMoon, Wheel, and Chaos Clinic.
A special set of Dr. Al's research charts are on the Secret page.

Comments in the chat room are announced by a
"duck call" noise. This noise also occurs when the software detects a
resonant hex pattern on the Wheel page. MoonTide trading tutorials
are on the right side of the ListOfCharts page. One should
read Trading the MoonTide Tutorial and Keep it Simple as a minimum.

Many subscribers do not strictly trade the MoonTides, but use the charts on this
site as input to their own trading strategies. For example, charts 5 and 6 on the
SPKiss page are a good starting point for swing traders.

Also on this site is the Certified Chaos Trader's Room. That room is open
to graduates of my 4 main courses. See -> Courses for details.
