SEASONALITY: MONDAY AND FRIDAY ARE BULLISH

CYCLE ANALYSIS: COULD BE A CYCLE BOTTOM AROUND 05/07 TO 05/10

There’re several cycle due on 05/07 and 05/10, plus as mentioned in 04/16 Market Recap, 05/05, 05/06 and o5/07 are important Gann Days, especially the 05/06 also is an important solar term date, so chances are good that the market could make a turn within those dates. So far they look like a cycle bottom.

1.0.7 SPX Cycle Watch (Daily), 1 cycle due on 05/10.

SPXDailyCycle 

1.0.9 SPX Cycle Watch (60 min), 2 cycles due on 05/07 and 05/10.

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: EXPECT ROLLER COASTER AHEAD OR THE MARKET COULD BE TOPPED

See 04/30 Market Recap for more details.

SHORT-TERM: EXPECT A REBOUND SOON BUT AFTER THAT USUALLY THERE’LL BE A 2ND LEG DOWN

For the short-term forecast I’ve already given in today’s After Bell Quick Summary: Expect a rebound within a day or two but after that there could be another leg down. The chart below illustrates the usual 2 legs down pattern often seen on a relatively bigger pullback. As of today the SPX had around 5.3% pullback which fits for the definition of a relatively bigger pullback, so it’s logic to expect 2 legs down at least.

More “excuses” to expect a rebound are listed below. However, let me make this clear again: the market report is different from the trading report, whose main focus is to provide information so it may look like the bias is always against the current trend. Please make sure you understand how to use the table above.

0.1.2 QQQQ Short-term Trading Signals, NAMO oversold, see green dashed lines, chances are good a rebound is very close. NAMO as well as NYMO are quite reliable indicators.

6.4.6b QQQQ Hollow Red Bar Watch, hollow red bar usually means a bottom.

 QQQQHollowRedBarWatch

6.2.5b VIX Body Completely Out Of BB Watch, VIX body completely out of BB top could mean at least a rebound the next day. See back test below, buy at today’s close, sell at tomorrow’s close, the winning rate is 68% since the year 2002.

6.1.1b Extreme CPC Readings Watch, CPC >= 1.01, way too bearish which means that bulls have 84% chances for tomorrow.
