SHORT-TERM: TREND IS NOT CLEAR OFFICIALLY BUT I’M BEARISH BIASED

Short-term direction is not clear, either an up Price Channel or a Bear Flag is in the forming. So we’ll have to wait until tomorrow.

Since the chart pattern doesn’t confirm, so officially I cannot say top was in, but purely from signals point of view, I shall say either top was in or very close.

6.5.1a SPX and FOMC. As mentioned in today’s After Bell Quick Summary, a red day after a red FOMC meant more pullbacks ahead. Just it had only 3 cases recently, so may not mean anything. However, don’t forget the chart 6.3.1b Major Accumulation Day Watch as 2 red day after a Major Accumulation Day also meant more pullbacks. If a red day after a red FOMC means more pullback is merely a coincidence, then 2 red day after a Major Accumulation Day cases reflecting the same thing is just the 2nd coincidence? Two coincidences are just coincidence? Well, better take them a little bit seriously, I think.

2RedDayAfterMAD 

VIX held below EMA(20) the 2nd day, if yesterday was merely a whipsaw, what the odds are whipsaw again today?

1.1.1 PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQQ Daily), QQQQ hollow red bar doesn’t look good either.
