SHORT-TERM: CPCE TOP SIGNAL HAVE NOT TRIGGERED
Nothing to say today, I’ll skip today’s After Bell Quick Summary (doesn’t work anyway). It’s a typical holiday market, small rise with decreased volume each day. My guess is we’ll see similar pattern tomorrow.
Two points for your attention:
Thanks for some readers’ reminder, there’s a perfect 3 points validated trend line on CPCE chart, so accordingly the top signal hasn’t been triggered yet.
VIX:VXV ratio hit a record low today which to me means not much upside room ahead. Normally when the market rises, you want to see VIX rises as well, because it means people are cautious and therefore bought lots of put to protect their longs, so a pullback, if any, won’t drop much. Now the market rises while VIX keeps dropping which means not many people are buying put to hedge, this is a dangerous situation because once the pullback starts, there’s not much buffer below so the pullback will be sharp and violent.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: COULD BE WAVE 5 UP TO SPX 1300+, PIVOT TOP COULD BE AROUND 01/05 TO 01/12
