Goldman Sachs is not the Vampire Squid!

I know it is hard to change a nickname after it has been given. How many of your friends from college with names like Spit or Two Thumbs do you see when you are in your 40’s and that is the only name you can remember. Not Bob or John….. but Spit. So forgive me for trying to correct that catchy nickname for Goldman Sachs, $GS, the Vampire Squid. It is not that I do not like it, but rather that it conflicts with Goldman’s true identity as a Bearish Deep Crab. The chart below shows how the Harmonics have been playing out in Goldman since mid July. The Deep Crab carries a Potential Reversal Zone from 169 to 173 so it has a lot of room to play out to the upside still. Often
smaller scale patterns will play out in the broader formation and this is the case for Goldman as well. The current leg higher is creating a 3 Drives pattern. This would indicate a pullback to the 135 area likely before the last push higher to 170 reaching there around the beginning of April. The two fit together quite nicely. The ultimate result of these patterns playing out would be a reversal at the 170 area back towards 120, a 61.8% retracement. So the question is ‘Does Nature Prefer the Vampire Squid or the Deep Crab?”
