CYCLE ANALYSIS: THE NEXT IMPORTANT DATE IS 05/06

The next potential turn date is 05/06 (+-) which could either be a top or a bottom depending on how the market marches to that date. See 04/16 Market Recap for more details.

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: EXPECT ROLLER COASTER AHEAD

See 04/26 Market Recap for more details.

SHORT-TERM: A FEW LONG SETUP NEED CONFIRMATION TOMORROW

From SPY daily chart, today is a typical consolidation day therefore the direction is unknown, need see tomorrow (see 8.0.1 Small Body Bar Trading Rule for why). However as discussed in 04/27 Market Recap, if the market repeats the past Major Distribution Day pattern, then the small green day today probably means that the market was bottomed.

MDD 

Of course, calling a market bottom for now is merely a speculation. For trading, we better have a good setup. And today we’re lucky to have one: 6.2.0a VIX Trading Signals (ENV), VIX dropped back into MA ENV(10, 20) triggering a potential long setup.
