Daily Murmur 15/03/11

XJO Where is it going?
We put out our recent 2011 forecast on the 7/2/11 (chart 1) and due to the 60 and 10 year being in tandem, this gave March as the most likely month for a high.  (This is for both equities and commodities) 
The current slide after breaking the rising wedge on the daily chart has been dramatic but this should be just the start of a larger topping process.  Longer term we expect to see a retest of the May 2010 low but the norm is to see more of a topping pattern, which means we should see some wild swings up and down.  September might be a bit too long an outlook as the move down has been impulsive but I do expect to see a few lower highs set up first so we should see a few sharp rallies on the way down.

The second chart is our most recent Elliott wave forecast and Wave 3 is 1.5 x wave 1 and wave 5 is .618 x wave 1.  The A wave took the market down to .38% retracement and the C wave should eventually take the market towards the 50% region which is around the 4080-4100 zone. The recent bearish break is very decisive so lower levels will be reached over time but again expect a few sharp bounces along the way.
