Monday 5th May looms as potential peak

by Gary Glover

This weekend looms as key timing point for our market.  Friday or Monday in particular are key timings to monitor for an important peak.  Most strong bull markets end with a 1/4 extension in time to complete the bull trend and looking through the top 20 stocks all I can see is new highs being extablished on lighter and lighter volume.  These look like classic 5th wave characteristics and it looks so similar to highs achieved in BHP and RIO back in May 2008.
The decline in volumes are a sign that fewer and fewer buyers are getting involved in this rally.
Expect the market to pop higher in coming few days and be wary of any key reversals that could present themselves starting next week.  The 1/4 year extension is normally how most of the major tops get marked.
