Kick-Off … To The Downside
A massive four-year top, along with the latest ‘road-map‘, has this one going down; most likely, for good.
While other chip makers, have gone to near stratospheric levels such as Nvidia, with its 23,960% gain from 2009, lows, Intel has languished.
The rest of the markets, S&P, Dow, QQQs, have pushed on higher while INTC, has spent the last four years, in a trading range.
A sideways market is a bear market.
Intel never recovered its luster after the Dot-Com mania of the 2000s. Price action spent eight years heading sideways-to-down before bottoming out in early 2009.
After that, it’s been a long struggle to current levels.
Now, the markets have reversed and the economy’s collapsing. We’ve likely seen market highs that won’t be repeated in the lifetimes of anyone reading.
Friday’s announcement may be the kick-off for sustained price action to the downside.
INTC, Chart Analysis
The daily chart shows at least one breakaway gap and possibly two.
The next chart is on the weekly timeframe and identifies the long, multi-year, topping pattern.
When looking at these patterns, be reminded about the scale of what’s happening.
This wedge is massive … at least four years in the making.
Note: Price action finished the day right at the lower support. There could be a rebound on Tuesday (market’s closed Monday) or we could just keep going lower.
The SOXX Connection
Intel’s fifth in market cap of the SOXX, with Taiwan Semiconductor (TSM) at the top of the list.
Even the leader TSM, may not be immune to trouble.
Here are Fab locations for Taiwan Semi, located just off the coast of mainland China … nothing bad going to happen there, right?
And then, there’s this:
The SOXX, Drops
Each method indicated potential for reversal.
In the case of the ‘wave’ analysis, if it proves correct, we’re possibly in for a sustained ride lower.
The daily chart of SOXX, shows each analysis point where a reversal lower was projected.
It’s clear from the chart and documented links, both methods nailed it … to the day.
Elliott was earliest and caught the exact point of inflection.
Wyckoff caught the test of the up-thrust.
Here’s the important part:
Wyckoff is a practical, bread and butter method. It looks at what the market’s saying about itself … is price action showing pressure to the upside or down?
Elliott Wave looks at where the market could be or is going.
If we’re really in an Elliott Wave Three down, it’s likely to be a decline like no other.
There are other indicators not market related, giving us hints, a massive collapse is ahead.
A Decline of ‘Biblical’ Proportions
The following contains scriptural references.
Those who are in ‘it’s all a myth and fairy tales’ crowd, feel free to scroll to the ‘Summary‘.
For the rest of us, the secular world calls it ‘systems collapse’. The spiritual world calls it ‘judgement’.
Stated many times on this site, ‘the church’ is corrupt. Here’s just the latest salvo proving that point.
Along with the corruption, we now have the strong delusions prophesied over 2,000 years ago.
In reference to a Stew Peters broadcast, linked here, on the numerous media lies, is this comment (emphasis added):
“The only people to blame for this Stew are the ones who put on the mask, who distanced, who took the shot, who harassed other people and who advocated for my freedoms being taken away. Without doing five minutes of research.”
It’s not too much of a stretch to say, those who voluntarily injected themselves were (or are) in a place of delusion.
“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:”
However, the injections are no lie … but the reasons for those injections are false.
Can this (spiritual assessment) really connect with what’s happening in the markets? How does it relate to actual price action?
Obviously, it can’t and shouldn’t be said that any specific price movement has been prophesied.
However, we can use the scriptural references to point us to the probability of events; the big picture, the situation at hand, the signs of the times.
The probability that we’re at some kind of major inflection point of Biblical proportions, seems exceedingly high.
Both Elliott Wave and Wyckoff Analysis, support the probability of lower prices ahead for the SOXX.
Because Intel (INTC) has been a laggard in the sector for years, suggests it may be one of the downside leaders.
As if to confirm the assessment we’re past the pivot, that generational highs have been reached, we have this just out, on ZeroHedge.
