SEASONALITY: MONDAY AND FRIDAY ARE BULLISH

According to Stock Trader’s Almanac:

  1. Monday before May Expiration, Dow up 19 of last 21.
  2. May expiration day, Dow up 5 of last 8.

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: SPX PULLBACK TARGET COULD BE AROUND 1008 TO 1019 AREA

Maintain the previous forecast below:

  1. 05/06 low may be broken but no evidence says this is a start of a new bear market. See 05/07 Market Recap for more details.
  2. The pullback could last to 05/23 at least. See 05/10 Market Recap for more details.

The chart below is my most recent speculation about the pullback target. Because the Monday to Thursday’s rebound conforms the partial rise pattern so now it looks like the Ascending Broadening Wedge is as real as it gets, therefore combining the text book target and Fib confluences area and weekly MA(89), the possible target could be around 1008 to 1019 area. As for when the target will be hit, I have no idea. The only thing I can say is that the minimum pullback time could last to 05/23.

For your reference, the chart below shows why weekly MA(89) is important.

Trading purely based on overbought/oversold while against the trend is lethal to the health of your account. Before going further, please make sure you understand how to use the table above.
SHORT-TERM: BEAR FLAG

I read a lot of market analysis, so far almost all expect a Monday rebound. I’m not sure if this is a bad sign, after all, not every weekend, will we see someone jumping out yelling that he/she will print $1,000,000,000,000. 1.0.0 S&P 500 SPDRs (SPY 60 min), could be a Bear Flag in the forming, so most likely the pullback isn’t over yet. Just I’m not sure if the flag has further to go before breaking down.
