I haven't examined Inflation Adjusted Charts in awhile however
they are important to look at since it's becoming obvious that those that
control the market have been trading off of them. The first graphic is a
yearly chart of the S&P Composite going back to the late 1890's. The
first thing to notice is that the S&P held support in 2009 right at the peak
of its late 1960's high near 700 (blue line). Meanwhile the next thing to
notice is that since the 2000 high a downward channel has developed (red
lines). Furthermore also take note that the S&P is rallying back to
the top of its downward channel which is near the 1500 level. If those
that control the market continue to trade off the Inflation Adjusted Charts one
would expect a decent reversal to develop from the top of the downward channel
as we move into 2013.
The next chart is
an Inflation Adjusted Chart of the S&P Composite going back to 1789 using
yearly closing values and plotted on a Log scale. In addition I have added
the Exponential Regression Line along with the % above the Regression Line
(black bars) based on yearly closing prices in the S&P.
when the S&P has risen 80% or more above its Regression Line (points A) this
has signaled a nearing Top which was followed by substantial corrections ranging
from 53% to 73%.
significant bottoms have occurred when the S&P has closed 50% or more below
its Regression Line (points B) which were then followed by impressive rallies
ranging from 117% to 839%.
Now if we apply
some long term channels based on 80% above (green) and 50% below (purple) the Regression Line
we get the chart below. As you can see there is clearly a long term upward
trending channel and so far the S&P has held support just below its Regression Line
back in 2009 (point C). Thus the question is was 2009 a Secular Bear
Market low or will the S&P eventually retest the lower part of the upward
channel at some point in the future?
