06/15/2011 Market Outlook (Law of Inertia)


Cobra's Market View Private Messaging System shows:


SHORT-TERM: COULD SEE MORE SELLING AHEAD

Most likely the selling isn’t over yet, the argument is, we’re on Earth (although QE2 almost convinced me that I was back to Mars) where everything has to conform the law of inertia. See chart below, the magnitude of the previous 2 down swings were much smaller than that of current one, yet both were 2 legged down, therefore chances are remote that this time we’d have just one leg down. So rebound tomorrow, if any, I think it’s a sell opportunity.

Some readers are asking the rule about huge rebound after 3 Major Distribution Days. I think although a huge rebound is just a matter of time, but the 3 Major Distribution Day rule may not apply here, because it’s hard to say whether the rebound yesterday was the anticipated huge rebound (after 2 Major Distribution Days) and to make things worse, if it counts as the huge rebound then today’s Major Distribution Day should be counted as the very first Major Distribution Day therefore theoretically there could be the 2nd one next (before any meaningful rebound).

Another bottom sign some may mention today is SPY volume surge. Unfortunately, the volume is not large enough, neither it’s confirmed by the volume of SPX.
