SHORT-TERM: FOMC DAY WAS GENERALLY BULLISH
Not much to say today. The market virtually has been consolidating for the past 3 weeks, tomorrow via the most anticipated FOMC Quantitative Easing II announcement, we may finally get the direction. Purely from chart pattern perspective, I see an Ascending Triangle in the forming, therefore 70% chances the breakout will be on the upside with the text book target at $122.24 which will be far above the April highs.
There’re lots of discussions about the Quantitative Easing II to be announced tomorrow, the consensus is 500B at minimum. The discussion is far beyond the scope of this report, so all I can tell you are that from the past pattern, FOMC day was generally bullish and the intraday pattern was also likely a continuous rising pattern from the start to the end and typically after 2:15pm ET FOMC announcement we had roller coaster show. Well, that’s it, good luck everyone!
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: BEARISH BIASED, PIVOT DATE EITHER ON 10/25 OR AROUND 11/04
Maintain the intermediate-term bearish view. We may have passed the pivot day on 10/25 or the next pivot day could be 11/04. Below are summaries of all the arguments supporting my intermediate-term bearish view:
- As mentioned in 10/29 Market Recap, commercial (smart money) holds record high short positions against Nasdaq 100.
- As mentioned in 10/29 Market Recap, AAII bull ratio (4-week average) is way too bullish.
- As mentioned in 10/29 Market Recap, institution selling keeps increasing.
- As mentioned in 10/08 Market Recap, statistically, a strong off-season could mean a weaker earning season.
- As mentioned in 10/22 Market Recap, NYSI Weekly STO(5,3,3) sell signal means choppy ahead.
SEASONALITY: LAST 2 MONTHS OF YEAR ARE BULLISH
