Three Peaks and a Domed House - redux
I last discussed George Lindsay's Three Peaks and a Domed House formation in this previous post. Since then a new point 14 has developed. You can see how I have relabeled the formation with its new point 14 - the August 25 low - in the daily chart of the Dow above.
The schematic below the Dow chart locates the market within the entire formation. A breakout above point 7 is due soon. The top of the domed house, usually the end of the bull market, is due 7 months and 10 days after point 14. This project to roughly April 6, 2011 by my calculations. A top then would also be a little more than 2 years after the start of the bull market in March 2009. This is the time span of one of Linday's basic advances and this reinforces the expectation of a bull market top in April 2011.
The entire corrective move since April 2010 looks like a classic Lindsay middle section which we later can use to apply the Lindsay counts from the middle section. But these counts are really only useful for predicting the date of the next bear market low and can't be produced until we see where and when the bull market high is established.
