11/01/2011 Market Outlook (Green Tomorrow but Lower Low Ahead)


Cobra's Market View Private Messaging System shows:


SHORT-TERM: LOWER LOW AHEAD BUT COULD BE GREEN TOMORROW

Three cents:

  1. Big picture is unclear for now. Not sure if the rebound was over we are heading to SPX 1,000 or it’s just the 1st up leg over, after the pullback we shall see the 2nd leg up. I’ll temporarily believe that we’d see the 2nd leg up because the sell off was too sharp, unless it’s an exceptional exception, otherwise such a sell off is not sustainable, should be over pretty soon, that at least the 10/27 highs would be revisited.
  2. Odds are very high we’d see a green day tomorrow. Not sure if we’d see a lower low first tomorrow morning though, may or may not.
  3. Odds also are very high that today’s low is not the low, so if without a lower low, the market rebounds directly from today’s close, then most likely it’s a sell opportunity.

Let’s take a look at the chart pattern first. Still above an important support, so the chart doesn’t look bearish yet. Theoretically, before any attempt to revisit the 10/27 highs, the chart looks ugly only when the 10/04 lows is broken. Such an analysis obviously has no trading value, and that’s why I said, the big picture is not clear. Let’s wait for a few days.

SPYDaily

Why are odds high that we’d see a green day tomorrow?

  • VIX rose 38%+ in 2 days, there’re only 8 cases in the past 20 years, all (100%) closed in green the next day.

VIXRose40PercentIn2Days

  • We had two Major Distribution Days in a row, there’re only 5 cases in the past 20 years, 4 out 5 (80%) closed in green the next day.

2ConsecutiveMDD

  • FOMC tomorrow, except the famous roller-coaster show after 2:15pm ET, the day tends to close in green 73% of the time.

Why isn’t today’s low the low?

Chinese Transcript

SHORT-TERM: LOWER LOW AHEAD BUT COULD BE GREEN TOMORROW

三点说明:

  1. 大方向暂时不明,不清楚是否反弹已经结束了,下面就要奔SPX 1,000去了,还是只是1st up leg结束了,pullback完了以后,还有2nd leg up。暂时维持2 leg up的看法,理由是这两天跌的太凶,除非是非常特别的情况,否则,这样的下跌是不可持续的,很快就会结束,这样10/27的high至少还是要去测试一下的。
  2. 明天收绿的可能性很大。不确定早盘是否会有lower low,可能有,也可能没有。
  3. 有很高的几率,今天的low不是the low,因此明天如果直接反弹,没有lower low的话,反弹是sell的机会。

先看pattern,今天收在支持上,因此图形并没有坏。理论上讲,在没有测试10/27 highs之前,只有跌破10/04的lows才是图形变坏了,显然,这样的图形分析没有多少trading价值,所以,我说大方向暂时不明。我们再等几天看吧。

SPYDaily

为什么明天收绿的可能性很大?

  • VIX两天内涨了38%,过去20年只有8个case,100%第二天都收绿了。

  • 明天是FOMC,除了2:15pm ET以后有过山车表演以外,有73%的机会最终收绿。

    great report!  

    holding 25 put contracts on spy – legacy position (was 150 contracts) i closed out 125 even today – your NYMO and a couple other things in your report were the thin straws that kept my hope that we’d have the last two major distribution days.  opened 25 contracts of calls for tomorrow’s green day.  looking to take advantage of tomorrow and maybe the next day’s green, but will add to shorts for the presumed lower low ahead in the next week or so.

    Thanks Cobra, I think Bernanke is out of bullets this time! If he eases inflationary hawks will be enraged.

    Even though you and I use different indicators, but our conclusions are usually the same. Interesting..

    BTW, cobra last night post I didn’t mean to be rude it was not my intention. Just so you know. 🙂

    • Yes, I know, thanks. 🙂

    Very nice analysis of VIX, Cobra.  You’ve convinced me to look for a bounce.

    Interesting day today, with SPX and other indices showing positive hourly divergences but not ES, because the real low was premarket, which raises all sorts of  questions about the sounds of trees falling in forests and of one hand clapping. I wonder if the lower ES will happen tomorrow morning, and we get a rally.

    Last time we had a similar B wave (April 2008) it ended at the 50DMA, which seems reasonable.  But the overall target of the entire rally was the 200DMA, which we’ve already hit.  Hmm.

    “…so if without a lower low, the market rebounds directly from today’s close, then most likely it’s a sell opportunity.”
    cobra: if above is the scenario for today, does this mean yesterday low may be revisited within next few days or at worse much lower low is high possibility in next few days? 

    • yes, normally it should get revisited.

  • ding, thanks cobra laoda

    GREAT call on today, Cobra!

    This is the third time this year that we have had a somewhat significant bottom on the Tuesday of Fed week (March, August and now this week)

    As for employment, if we are reverting to the bull market behaviour, then yesterday was a significant low, as we used to fall at the beginning of employment week (remember your end of month stats?) and then the rally would re-start….

    As always, ever interesting!

    -D
