SHORT-TERM: HIGHER HIGH GUARANTEED, NEED WATCH SOME BEARISH EXTREMES THOUGH
No argue, we had a clear breakout and also because today is a Major Accumulation Day (NYSE Up Volume : NYSE Down Volume >= 9), so an immediate higher high was almost guaranteed and bears will have to wait until the next consolidation area before considering any possible counterstrikes. And also therefore my intermediate-term bearish view needs to be reassessed. Although my call for the pivot time window could be as late as 11/08 (see 10/29 Market Recap), but I think the chances are remote unless a red day tomorrow (will discuss this if indeed so). I FEEL TERRIBLE FOR BEING WRONG, however, I do hope all of you have noticed what I mentioned in 10/05 Market Recap, a possible 16 more trading days upswing after 10/05 breakout and in 10/22 Market Recap, I also reiterated that bearish intermediate-term view doesn’t equal to a short position, please use my position listed in the table above as reference. So trading wise, if strictly follow my report, bears shouldn’t lose much. Anyway, from now on, I’ll change the way of expressing my expectation to avoid misunderstandings.
About Non Farm Payroll day tomorrow, 2 things to say:
- Generally bullish.
- Intraday pattern usually open high close lower or open low close higher.
The following intraday statistics is from Bespoke:
If Friday’s report comes in significantly stronger and the market opens up, history says not to chase it. If the report comes in much weaker than expected and the market opens down, investors should buy on weakness.
I see lots of bearish extremes today, however as per the current bullishness, I feel all those extremes may not be extreme enough, so to expect a pullback, we may have to wait for a few more days. Below are some of those bearish extremes:
Percent of SPX stocks 1 std dev above MA(50), see bars highlighted in red.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: TO BE REASSESSED
The SPX had a clear breakout of its 3 weeks range on the upside, so the intermediate-term bearish view was a failed call. Will reassess the intermediate-term trend in the weekend report.
SEASONALITY: LAST 2 MONTHS OF YEAR ARE BULLISH
See 10/29 Market Recap for more details.
