SHORT-TERM: MINI PRICE TARGET SPX 1158, TIME TARGET 09/21

No argue, the market chose to breakout on the upside, therefore if we’re still on earth then since a forward accelerating car must slow down before it can be reversed so we should see more up days ahead, until a small bar consolidation area (means slow down) is formed before a top of some kind could be seriously considered. The chart below shows the mini price and time target in the most bearish view. I don’t mean that the market will follow this bearish view, I mean if the market sill has some upside room even in the most bearish view, then bulls should be pretty safe before the price and time target are met. As the 09/21 in the chart fits well with the 09/21 to 09/23 time window I mentioned in 09/17 Market Recap, so if the trend really is about to be changed, then most likely it should be in 09/21 to 09/23 time window instead of 10/05. Again, this is the most bearish view, assuming 09/21 to 09/23 is THE TOP. If you believe that the intermediate-term should be 2 to 3 leg up, then 09/21 to 09/23 time window is nothing, although market may still pullback around this time window but that could be an overbought pullback happens to be within this time window.

PriceAndTimeTarget 

The last but not the least, still suggest not getting too bullish in the short-term, as although the market up huge today but all the negative divergences in chart 1.0.0 S&P 500 SPDRs (SPY 60 min) are not fixed. The chart still looks bearish to me.

SPY60min 

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: STATISTICALLY BULLISH FOR THE NEXT 2 WEEKS

We could see 2 to 3 legs up while now is the very first leg up. See 09/17 Market Recap for more details.
