SEASONALITY: THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEK IS BULLISH BUT JUNE HAS BEEN THE 2ND WORST MONTH OF THE YEAR OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS
See 05/28 Market Recap for more details.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: MAINTAIN PULLBACK TARGET AROUND 1008 TO 1019, II SURVEY MAY MEAN A HUGE REBOUND AHEAD
Maintain the intermediate-term target around 1008 to 1019 (See 05/21 Market Recap for more details) but since II survey shows too many people are expecting a correction, so if the past II survey pattern repeats again this time, it’s possible that we might see huge rebound, even new high before the real correction kicks in. See 05/28 Market Recap for more details.

SHORT-TERM: EXPECT MORE BACK AND FORTH AHEAD
1.0.0 S&P 500 SPDRs (SPY 60 min), what we’ve been seeing those days is a typical back and forth pattern in attempt to break though the long term MMA (pink). And that’s why we saw the market up and down alternately day by day.
The most recent similar pattern was seen in February – back and forth before break through on the upside.
So, this kind of up one day then down one day situation is not necessarily bearish. Actually it means a temporary balance between bulls and bears. Eventually the balance will be broken resolving in either up or down.
The question is up or down? Well, all I can say are:
- Bulls are trying to break through, at least is more hopeful than not trying.
- Signals are bull friendly as there’re lots of bottom signals accumulated in the table above.
- Most likely we’ll see more back and forth for ahead.
Why we’ll see more back and forth ahead? 2 reasons:
I’ve mentioned the big WOW in today’s After Bell Quick Summary, the Nasdaq Intraday Cumulative TICK is way too high. The previous 7 times I mentioned this was in 05/26 Market Recap, 05/18 Market Recap, 05/12 Market Recap, 05/03 Market Recap, 04/29 Market Recap, 04/20 Market Recap and 04/14 Market Recap, the market all had a pullback thereafter.
Another unique thing today is a Major Accumulation Day (NYSE Up Volume to NYSE Down Volume Ratio >= 9) happens immediately after a Major Distribution Day (NYSE Down Volume to NYSE Up Volume Ratio >= 9). All the past cases were listed in the chart below. So far with no exception, a down day the next day and the trigger day’s low eventually will be tested even though the market was bottomed in some cases.
