SEASONALITY: NO UPDATE
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: STATISTICS ARE BEARISH
SHORT-TERM: UP TOMORROW, BUT DOWN THIS WEEK AND NEXT WEEK?
No hard evidences today, but 2 speculations, for fun only.
I said yesterday, whether the 08/25 bullish reversal bar means a bottom, needs a follow-through. Too bad, there’s no follow-though today. So does this mean that 08/25 is not a bottom? The chart below shows the most recent bottom pattern: A bullish reversal bar followed by Dark Cloud Cover all had led to a huge up bar the next bar which for now is tomorrow. The question is whether the 4th time will be different? Anyway, at least whether the market has bottomed, we have to see tomorrow, agree?
In 08/20 Market Recap, I said if red week this week, then be careful about the very first 4 consecutive down weeks this year, in another word, if red this week, then probably red the next next week. Looks to me now, unless a miracle happens tomorrow otherwise this week will likely end in red.
6.5.2c Week Seasonality Watch can be seen as an insurance for a red next week, because it seems the last week of every month since Aug 2009 were more likely bearish (Stockcharts counts the next week as the last trading week in August not the first trading week in September).
