BULLISH 09/27 Market Recap: 9 POMO within 20 trading days means 14%+ up in 3 months.
02/23 Market Recap: Pullback could last 4 weeks, then 02/18 highs will be revisited.
03/01 Market Recap: Bearish Engulfing is very bullish in 2 to 4 weeks.

*0.1.0 SPY Short-term Trading Signals: A few short-term long setup triggered on 03/16.
BEARISH 4.0.1 SPX Long-term Trading Signals: Weekly EMA(13) is way too high above weekly EMA(34).
03/04 Market Recap: OEX open interest ratio too high, could be choppy ahead.
03/16 Market Recap: Could see lower low ahead.
My Thoughts The pullback since 02/22 may last but the 02/18 high will be revisited in 69 calendar days on average.
SPY SETUP ENTRY DATE STOP LOSS INSTRUCTION: Mechanic signals, back test is HERE, signals are HERE.
TRADING PLATFORM:
SSO/SDS, UPRO/SPXU
Non-Stop 02/24 S N/A Short is for aggressive traders only.
ST Model   Sell mode means downtrend. The model needs 2nd signal to open a short position.
Short-term DOWN 03/14 High As long as 03/14 high remains intact, the game is to sell bounce.

SHORT-TERM: COULD SEE REBOUND AS EARLY AS TOMORROW BUT THERE’LL BE A LOWER LOW AHEAD

Three things:

  1. C0uld see a rebound as early as tomorrow.
  2. Sell off might not be over yet, so today’s low is not the low.
  3. Trading wise, sell bounce is still the name of the game. See short-term model in the table above for more details.

Why I expect a rebound?

As mentioned in today’s After Bell Quick Summary, bulls have 76% chances tomorrow.

VIX

6.3.2a Major Distribution Day Watch, a Major Distribution Day (NYSE Down Volume : NYSE Up Volume >= 9) means 37/56 (66%) chances for bulls tomorrow.

MDD

0.2.3 NYSE McClellan Oscillator, NYMO oversold is a very reliable signal, one of my favourite.

NYMO

Why today’s low is not the low?

Very oversold NYMO means a VISIBLE positive divergence is a must before a meaningful bottom. What does VISIBLE mean? The index must rebound for a few days first then fall back below the previous low while NYMO hold above its previous low to form a positive divergence. Let’s say tomorrow, the index keeps selling off and we have a lower low then rebound huge, NYMO in this case may have a higher low, well, too bad, that is not a visible positive divergence. Must be a rebound (say, starting from tomorrow) for a few days then falls back below today or tomorrow’s low, whichever is lower, then we shall have the visible positive divergence.

NYMOPositiveDivergenceNeeded

Two Major Distribution Day within 2 days, so could see a short-term rebound (see dashed blue lines), could not (see dashed red lines), whichever the cases, the point is the sell off mostly continues thereafter.

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: COULD NOT BE VERY BRIGHT BUT STATISTICALLY BULLISH IN 3 TO 6 MONTHS
