ST Model 02/25 L Breakeven *Stopped out long position on 03/01 flat.
Short-term *DOWN 02/18 High Hold short position until stop loss being hit.
My Thoughts The pullback since 02/22 will last awhile but the 02/18 high will be visited in 69 calendar days on average.

SHORT-TERM: COULD JUST BE A SHORT-TERM DIP, INTERMEDIATE-TERM REMAINS BULLISH

A Bearish Engulfing pattern is formed on the SPY daily chart today which supposes to be a bearish reversal 79% times. However the back test since 2003 seems very very bullish, except no clear edge for the next week. So my guess is that although the test of the 02/24 low is still quite possible (see today’s After Bell Quick Summary), but the recent pullback could just be a dip in an intermediate-term uptrend, as so far no evidences arguing that this is something significant. The conclusion, by the way, conforms with the conclusion I drew in 02/23 Market Recap based on the statistics about 2.5%+ pullbacks after 40+ straight up days.

  1. Please make sure you understand how to use the table above. The purpose of this report is to provide info so contradictory signals are always presented.
  2. Conclusions can be confirmed endlessly, but trading wise, you have to take actions at certain risk level as soon as you feel the confirmation is enough. There’s no way for me to adapt to different risk levels therefore no trading signals will be given in this report except the mechanical signals such as SPY ST Model.
  3. * = New update; Blue Text = Link to a chart in my public chart list.
  4. Trading signals in OTHER ETFs table are mechanical signals. See HERE for back test results. 08/31 L, for example, means Long on 08/31.
