SHORT-TERM: STILL EXPECT PULLBACK, NOT SURE WHEN AS THE MARKET MAY STILL HAVE A FEW DAYS UP
I still expect a short-term pullback because all the top signals listed in 09/10 Market Recap are still valid. However, unless something terrible happens unexpected otherwise the market most likely may up or at least consolidate for a few days before actually pulling back. The reason is still, a strong up momentum like what the market shown today won’t be reversed all of sudden, a fading process (which could be a series of small up or down consolidation days) is generally needed if we’re still on earth. Trading wise, it’s simple, first of all, short is for aggressive traders only because so far the intermediate-term trend is up. Secondly, if you really really want to short, a general pattern is to wait for the breakdown of the trend line then a failed back test of the bull extremes as shown in chart below. For now, the trend line is still intact so the risk is very high to short now.
What worth to blah blah today is that COMPQ formed 5 unfilled gaps within 8 trading days. The similar case happened only during the 2009 Santa Rally, see 12/24/2009 Market Recap, when COMPQ formed 5 consecutive unfilled gaps within 6 trading days. The chart below illustrates what happened thereafter. Well, for your info only, I have no intension to imply that we’re going to repeat exactly the same this time.
Another stuff worth blah blah is SPX was up 1.1% while TNX down 1.9% on the same day, which looks very bearish since TNX usually leads. However back test since year 2000 doesn’t show any bearish edges so this shouldn’t be the reason to be bearish.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: BULLISH, BUT HOW BULLIS IS TO BE REASSESSED
See 09/10 Market Recap for more details.
SEASONALITY: SEPTEMBER IS BEARISH, THE TRIPLE WITCHING FRIDAY IS BULLISH
See 09/03 Market Recap for September seasonality.
