SHORT-TERM: IN WAIT AND SEE MODE
I don’t feel good about today’s market. A Hollow Red Bar (Close > Open but Close < Last Close) followed by a Filled Black Bar (Close < Open but Close > Last Close), both have strong implication of a reversal therefore cannot exclude the possibility that the top was already in. We’ll have to see tomorrow of course, so let’s say, it’s an orange warning for now.
The chart below is a relatively bullish bearish view, as from the chart pattern, it feels still missing one last push up. If however, decisively break above today’s high tomorrow, then the view would be invalid and so does that orange warning. So again, let’s see tomorrow.
