INTERMEDIATE-TERM: INITIAL PULLBACK TARGET MET BUT COULD BE MORE

No update, see 02/05/2010 Market Recap, Fib 38.2% retracement target was met, but I suspect there’s more. There’s a chance that after the pullback is over, we’ll see a new high followed by a bigger pullback thereafter.

SHORT-TERM: MARKET MAY VERY CLOSE TO AT LEAST A SHORT-TERM BOTTOM  

See table above, two additional bullish signals were added, therefore chances are increasing significantly that the market may very close to at least a short-term bottom. But still there’re 2 concerns. Firstly, 6.3.0 Major Accumulation/Distribution Days, the Major Distribution Day seldom comes alone, in another word is that there could be another big sell off ahead. Secondly, 6.4.A SPY Bottom Shape, see chart below, comparing to the past bottom shape, do you think the current shape look like a bottom? So the conclusion is, a bottom (could be either short-term or intermediate-term) should be very close but the market may test 02/05 low first. Of course, the market could keep rising from here, if so, because the low is not tested, it’s not easy for the market to stand only on one foot, therefore it cannot go too far, eventually will have to come down at least to test the 02/05 low. If this is the case, then for sure, the 02/05 low is only a short-term bottom.

The three bullish signs mentioned above are listed below.

6.3.2c Major Distribution Day Watch, NYDNV:NYUPV > 35, usually a bottom is very close.

MDD

0.0.9 Extreme Put Call Ratio Watch, see green rectangles.

PutCallRatioWatch

2.0.0 Volatility Index (Daily), three reversal bars in a row so VIX is very likely to pullback which means that SPX will rise.
