Expect a summer rally, but another correction is on the horizon

Bull market for stocks.

The markets should have a modest rally over the summer months as the "up" portion of the new cycle takes hold. But the extended nature of the larger advance suggests that a choppy rally will be followed by another correction as the cycle moves to its next maturation date in mid-October. This correction should take the markets back below the June 24 lows.

The recent lows provided a buying opportunity, especially in technically strong stocks that have been subjected to profit-taking. But the markets are unlikely to rally to new bull market highs over the summer. A second correction into the autumn months is needed before sufficient buying power is mobilized to launch what is likely to be the final major advance of this bull market.
