See 05/14 Market Recap for more details.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: MINIMUM PULLBACK TIME TARGET COULD BE REACHED
Bottomed? Well, I don’t know. From both time and trading signals aspect, at least short-term is bull friendly. However, trading wise, at the current stage, buy dip should be for aggressive traders only, while the safest way is still to sell bounce because both SPY ST Model and Non-Stop Model are in sell mode.
Start with the time first. In 05/07 Market Recap, I mentioned 3 reasons for expecting the pullback to last to 05/23.
- Multiple Gann Days due from 05/19 to 05/22.
- 05/21 is an important solar term date.
- Minimum pullback time could last 13 to 18 trading days.
Today is 05/19 which is within the Gann Days range so starting from today, any day thereafter, could be a bottom day. Trading day wise, today is the 17th trading day which also is within the 13 to 18 trading days range.
Now the signal part, see table above, more bull friendly signals are added.
0.2.2 Extreme Put Call Ratio Watch, see dashed green lines, when CPCI, CPCE and CPC all are at an extreme high level, the market could be bottomed (Well, I know, the cases are too few).
8.1.1 Normalized NATV/NYTV, see vertical green lines, Nasdaq volume is far less than NYSE volume means fear as people are trying to avoid high beta stocks, therefore it could mean a bottom.
0.2.6 NYSE - Issues Advancing, NYADV oversold also is very reliable. There’s a little hope for bears though, but NYADV positive divergence before the market bottom is not always the case, so better bears don’t rely too much on this signal.
I mentioned the TradingMarkets 2 day cumulative RSI(2) strategy in 05/18 Market Recap, I said if today, the MA(200) could hold the test and the 2 day cumulative RSI(2) buy be triggered again, then at least statistically, chances are very good that we may see at least a short-term rebound very soon.
WARNING: If you don’t understand the true meaning of overbought/oversold, please skip the session below. Generally, you should try your best not to trade against the trend. 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: NO UPDATE
