SHORT-TERM: REBOUND STILL IS POSSIBLE

The bottom line:

  1. A short-term rebound still is possible. I’m not very sure though because 0.2.5 NYSE Total Volume is still very low, doesn’t look like a bottom pattern.
  2. Since I see another not so bull friendly intermediate-term signal, so I’m relatively sure that intermediate-term is bearish.

Why is a short-term rebound still possible? Besides the time, price and chart pattern I mentioned in the 08/20 Market Recap, which are still valid, I see 2 additional good signs:

VIX Leads SPX. This chart seems work very good recently.

VIXLeads 

I’ve mentioned a possible firework setup in today’s After Bell Quick Summary. If you have read the History of the Firework trading setup then you should know it’s a powerful setup if it still works nowadays. Of course, I heard that the CPC < 0.8 today was caused by huge speculation calls on an individual stock, so whether it’s just a special event that shouldn’t be counted is remained to be seen.

To be fair, if bulls rather believe the above mentioned firework, then should equally accept the fact that according to the chart 6.1.0 Extreme CPCE Readings Watch, CPCE < 0.42 although means short-term bullish but intermediate-term is quite bearish which fits well with all the bearish statistics I listed in  the 08/20 Market Recap.
