SHORT-TERM: HEAD AND SHOULDERS BOTTOM IN THE FORMING?

In 08/24 Market Recap, I said that around 08/26(+-) could be a pivot date, if SPX pullback to 1040 around this pivot date, then there’s a chance that a Head and Shoulders Bottom could be in the forming. This was exactly what happened today. The SPX got support around 1040 and rebounded to form a bullish reversal bar, looks not bad. Well, does this mean that the market has bottomed? All I can say are maybe, could be, probably, possibly. Need see a follow through tomorrow for sure.

TimeAnalysis

 

0.2.0 Volatility Index (Daily), VIX formed 2 reversal bars in a row, therefore may pullback further which is good for the stock market. Besides this, I have lots of other daily charts showing bullish reversal bars. So overall, daily charts look not bad.

VIXDaily 

If you’ve read SPY ST Model Cover Short Signal then you should know a blue bar cover short signal was given by the SPY ST Model today. The chart below shows all the blue bars in recent years. As you can see, although they may not be exactly THE BOTTOM but generally should be close enough, so I think today’s blue bar can be treated as another evidence that the market might have bottomed.
