SHORT-TERM: BULLS ON OFFENSE BUT BEARS MAY STILL HAVE CHANCES

Short-term direction still depends on which side breaks first, SPX 1148 or 1122. See 09/27 Market Recap for more details. For now bulls are on offense as an Ascending Triangle could be formed. If breakout and up HUGE tomorrow, then bears will have to retreat to the next consolidation area before any potential counterstrikes could be seriously considered.

Of course, bears still have chances, except that according to 6.5.2b Month Day Seasonality Watch, short at today’s close cover before 09/30 close, the odds were 12 out of 13, there’re 2 charts in favor of bears:

VIX Leads SPX. The divergence is a little bit large so the signal might worth some points.

VIXLeadsSPX 

CPCI is a little too high, although not extremely high, but still can see some bearish edges on the chart.

CPCIWatch 

A reader asked again about what happened when both VIX and SPX closed in green. Well, see chart below, just a little little little little bearish biased toward tomorrow.

SPXandVIXDivergenceWatch 

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: BULLISH, BUT NEED SOME IMAGINATION TO FORESEE HOW BULLISH

See 09/27 Market Recap for more details.

SEASONALITY: LAST TRADING WEEK OF MONTH WAS GENERALLY BEARISH

See 09/24 Market Recap for more details.

  1. Please make sure you understand how to use the table above. The purpose of this report is to provide info so contradictory signals are always presented.
  2. Conclusions can be confirmed endlessly, but trading wise, you have to take actions at certain risk level as soon as you feel the confirmation is enough. There’s no way for me to adapt to different risk levels therefore no specific buy/sell signals will be given in this report except the mechanical signals such as SPY ST Model.
