S&P: the hidden cycles
Information is not investment advice
The election factor
Facebook made a pretty significant upswing recently. From $258 per share, it leaped to almost $290 – more than a 10% rise. Nvidia followed the suit with other stocks as well showing that the tech sector of the S&P wants to make the best of the elections. How exactly? In general, Republicans in the US Parliament are more preferred by this sector than the Democrats. At least, the fact that things in the Senate are going to stay pretty much the same as they have been so far means that there will probably be no more restrictions on the tech giants. Logically, they are happy about it – precisely, 10%-happy, like in the case of Facebook. What about the S&P in general?
The cyclical factor
Look at the daily chart of the S&P below.
In March, the S&P oscillated between 2780 and 2980: an upswing, a correction downwards, another weaker upswing, a correction to the same support, then marching upwards.
In June, a similar oscillation happened between 2980 and 3225: reaching a high, going down, making a lower high, going down again to the same bottom, then breaking to the upside again.
In September-October, we same almost the same, just protracted pattern: up, down, up but lower, down again, then breaking upwards once again. The support is now 3225 and the resistance – to yet get broken – is 3580.
What does it suggest? We are likely to witness a strong bullish push beyond 3580 that may well last until the very end of the year. Once it exhausts itself, the support to be watched for the bearish revenge will be in the area of 3580. But now – enjoy the march with bulls.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
