GANN DAY MOON:SOLAR CYCLE CONCLUSION
03/16-03/21 03/19 : 03/21 Next pivot date: 03/21
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.
03/11 Market Recap: Bullish in 3 to 6 months.
BEARISH 4.0.1 SPX Long-term Trading Signals: Weekly EMA(13) is way too high above weekly EMA(34).
03/18 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 03/22 S  1.9*ATR(10)
Short-term UP *03/23 Low I hold partial long position overnight. The short position was stopped out with loss.

SHORT-TERM: BEARS ARE NOT OVER YET

Although a good day for bulls but not strong enough as according to the n vs n rule mentioned yesterday, 6 vs 6, bulls already lost. Unless up really huge tomorrow otherwise by definition this still is a sellable bounce and accordingly the 03/16 low will be revisited eventually.

Trading wise, in short-term, I’d buy the very first dip as according to the law of inertia, after a strong push up like we saw today, the very first pullback would mostly fail while the bear’s best bet is three push up to form a Double Top before a meaningful pullback could be possible.

1

In addition, I see two warnings today, may not mean much so info only.

VIX dropped 30%+ in 4 trading days which had only happened 4 times since year 2000. The pullbacks thereafter within 5 days were all big.

3

As mentioned in today’s intraday comment, OEX put call ratio is way too high which is not a good sign because historically OEX option traders are mostly correct.

4

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: BULLISH IN 3 TO 6 MONTHS

Combine the study mentioned in 02/23 Market Recap and 03/11 Market Recap, I still believe that 02/18 high will be revisited.

SEASONALITY: BEARISH THE NEXT WEEK

According to Stock Trader’s Almanac:

  1. Week after Triple Witching, Dow down 15 of last 23, but rallied 4.9% in 2000, 3.1% in 2007 and 6.8% in 2009.
  2. March historically weak later in the month.

For March seasonality chart please refer to 03/01 Market Recap.
