SHORT-TERM: HOW AAPL ER AFFECTS THE TREND WILL HAVE TO SEE TOMORROW

The market retreated after the AAPL ER in AH, whether it affects the short-term trend, will have to see tomorrow. Basically, there’s no intraday lower low yet, so although bears may have some hopes but no optimistic yet. The only good news for bear is if regard today’s intraday high as the retest of the previous high, since bulls had tried twice and failed so now the market could try the opposite direction especially if bears could make a lower low tomorrow.

Percent of SPX stocks 1 std dev above MA(50) still is too high, see highlighted in red, choppy ahead at least.

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: BEARISH BIASED, PIVOT DATE EITHER AROUND 10/22 OR 10/26 OR 11/04

Maintain the intermediate-term bearish view, the pivot date could be either around 10/22 or 10/26 or 11/04, see 10/15 Market Recap for more details. Below are summaries of all the arguments supporting my intermediate-term bearish view:

  1. As mentioned in 10/15 Market Recap, commercial (smart money) holds record high short positions against Nasdaq 100.
  2. As mentioned in 10/15 Market Recap, AAII bull ratio (4-week average) is way too bullish.
  3. As mentioned in 10/15 Market Recap, institution selling keeps increasing.
  4. As mentioned in 10/08 Market Recap, statistically, a strong off-season could mean a weaker earning season.
  5. As mentioned in 10/11 Market Recap, VIX:VXV is too low and statistically VIX at 1 month low going into October was not a good sign.
  6. As mentioned in 10/15 Market Recap, US$ may rebound which is not good for the broad market.

SEASONALITY: NO UPDATE
