Cramer pointed out that Williams said in late October – which marked a major month for stocks this year – that stocks could rally through the end of 2022. “Since then we’ve had a really good run, so at As we get closer to the holidays, you have to ask yourself, can it go on?” Cramer said.

He first looked at the S&P 500 daily chart to explain Williams’ analysis.

The blue line represents the Williams pattern of the index’s seasonal pattern, or in other words, how it has historically traded at any given time of year. The trend tends to be bullish for stocks through the end of the year, meaning the market’s recent strength may be far from over, according to Cramer.

“Williams points out that there are generally two sweet spots for the S&P at this time of year: the first extends through late November, the second through mid-December,” he said. he declares.

Cramer also analyzed a chart of the S&P 500 that shows Williams’ short-term cycle forecast in red.

If this cycle repeats itself, as it has in recent years, stocks could fall until the end of November. However, it is possible that the S&P 500 will take off in early December, according to Cramer.

“Between the seasonal pattern and the short-term cycle, as well as the extremely positive long-term cycle that we covered a few weeks ago, he’s seeing a lot of green lights to start buying,” Cramer said.
