SHORT-TERM: ISEE EQUITIES ONLY INDEX IS STILL WAY TOO HIGH

As I’ve been saying how far the market could go may depend on how crazy the ISEE Equities Only Index readings are. Unfortunately, today’s ISEE Equities Only Index closed above 260 again. The chart below shows all the recent records when the index closed above 260, looks a lot like 04/26 top, doesn’t it? (Also see 8.2.7a Record High ISEE Equities Only Index Readings 2006 – 2007 for the past record)

ISEEEquitiesOnlyIndexWatch 

Let’s use another way to measure how extreme the current ISEE Equities Only Index readings are. The chart below highlighted in red are all the cases when ISEE Equities Only Index MA(10) >= 229. Should be clear enough to see what happened thereafter, right?

ISEEEquitiesOnlyIndexMA10 

I have no idea whether the ISEE Equities Only Index would work or not this time, although theoretically, from TA point of view, we should never ever think maybe this time is different. For now the best I can say is, as mentioned in the 12/03 Market Recap, if bear wants a revenge, either this week or has to wait after the new year.  From all the evidences I’ve collected so far, we’re likely to see a red day tomorrow plus the fact today is the Magic Day 6, so if, I said if, the bear’s best chance is this week, then today probably is bear’s best day of the week. Well, I mean one of the best days of the week, LOL.

Why is very likely a red day tomorrow?

Besides the CPC <= 0.80 mentioned in today’s After Bell Quick Summary, take a look at below for what happened the next day after a VIX black bar?

VIXBlackBar 

Seasonality wise, tomorrow is the most likely red day in December.

Seasonality

Then why is  today is the bear’s best (opportunity) day of the week?

Besides the New Moon and Solar Term date listed in the table above, today is the Magic Day 6 which had the most pivot days since year 2000.

PivotDateSince2000 

Also the most recent short-term rebound usually lasted 5 to 7 trading days while we’re on the day 5 rebound, so if this still is a short-term rebound, then the turning point should be around now.

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: BULLISH BUT NEED SEE HOW MARKET BREAKOUT ABOVE SPX 1227

Temporarily maintain a bullish view for the intermediate-term, need see how the market breakout above SPX 1227 though. Right now the biggest problem is ISEE Equities Only Index is way too crazy. See 12/03 Market Recap for more detail.

SEASONALITY: DECEMBER HAS BEEN BULLISH

See 12/03 Market Recap for more detail.
