I've noticed some interesting similarities in the timing of S&P 500 Index (SPX) highs and lows in the third and fourth quarters of 2010 and 2011.
- August lows -- Market bottoms on August 27, 2010 and on August 8, 2011 (though these August lows were briefly taken out on October 3 and 4)
- Late-October/early-November highs -- On November 5, 2010 and October 27, 2011
- November lows -- The November 29, 2010 low was followed by a 15% rally into February 2011
Will something similar eventuate now that we have a tentative low in place on Nov. 25, 2011?
