The bottom line, the direction is till not clear, so we have to wait.

Bears had 3 consecutive gap downs, which though for bulls, up to 5 consecutive gap up is nothing but for bear, is too much, so chances are yet another gap down tomorrow morning is low. That said if indeed another gap down, then bulls better not hope another sharp intraday reversal because that’d be, I cannot remember how many times bulls did recently, which is pretty much boring and lacking imagination or I shall say requires a lot imagination.

          Maybe you should read yesterdays market outlook again. You may learn something.

      • Thanks, appreciate.

    I’d call that intraday rally a nasty bull trap complete with a nasty EOD dump.

    Gap up is a sell

    • HighRev

      I would have to agree, but I would keep a short leash on it until the market proved me right with some breather room.

        I’m going with a false breakdown pattern to scare longs short term and squeeze into opex or Monday after.  Multi-week rally afterwards.  A sharp drop tomorrow will create quick schizophrenic bearish sentiment.  I know Cobra doesn’t talk about news or macro, but this triangle on s&p is all about ECB, whether they will step in aggressively and buy bonds or not.  Next few days very news driven.  My comments are short term only.

          This is my outlook as well. I sure hope you are right!

        at least i tell there is a potential crash coming, which people can not think of. that idea of a crash potential itself is a big gift to lots traders. ANYBODY see a crash?

        • HighRev

          How long have you been posting “CRASH potential!!”? I’ve seen you post that so much that I know it’s not worth my time to even click the link.

          You have heard of the little boy who cried wolf?

  • DOW:

    Daily chart is still showing identical characteristics of the May 2008 top. This is also reflected in other time frames in that, at the time of the 2008 top many believed from a fundamental and technical perspective that we would go higher and that is also the case at present.


    Hourly shows a possible H+S pattern within the “triangle” that everyone has been talking about. Most believe the triangle will break to the upside, however, you cannot believe that until it has happened.

    Looking at the largest individual hourly candles, they are all red, and all red candles that lost 120 points or more had follow through. What’s more, it is only those candles that produced the follow through that managed to crack below the 11,846 support level. All other attempts at 11,846 have found support. This would suggest the probability going forward is that 11,846 will get broken and we’ll go lower.


    4 hourly chart shows that the 11,846 support combines with a fib level. Odds are that this level will not hold.Combining with this 11,846 area is a trend line that may offer support.

    Ultimately I think it will break simply because at current levels we are not finding buyers to break through the October high, so we may need to go lower to find them.

    One thing I do find interesting is that the gap at 11,134 has found itself right on the 61.8% fib retrace of the current move. Although it’s no guarantee that we’ll go and visit this in a straight line from here, this is very similar to the early stages of analysis that gave me the 10,461 call back when the DOW was at 12,800.http:


    All in all, I’ve really struggled to call the DOW right this Week, and today in particular has been tough for me, so bear that in mind when reading my analysis.

    I have been reading your blog, including intraday comments
    for some time now, I wanted to register and say that you do great work. Thanks!


    So far, I’ve been buying every dip and it has been working-
    but today feels a little different. I know, you’ve always said when you really
    feel bad about a position, that will probably work out well- but not sure if it
    is wise to hold longs overnight, especially given the violent move a EOD today.



    I’d appreciate any advice. I see that many of you have a
    very bearish view- but how much of this we can attribute to the opex week “shakeout”?

    I have seen both bulls and bears getting hurt in last
    several days.

    What are the chances that there is a fake break to downside of
    the now famous triangle, then the move resumes to 1300?


    I can’t wait to read Cobra’s market outlook tonight!


    • Thanks. I’m afraid you’d be disappointed in tonight report, because I’m clueless about the market direction, although like you, I do feel bad about the market.

      Chances are good for a fake breakdown of the triangle before rocketing higher. That would fool plenty of traders, though not us right? Going long feels bad but is probably safe. J trader got a buy signal and he has been doing great nailing short term tops and bottoms.

      • Well, seems every expecting a false breakdown. 🙂 Just read all the comments here you’d know why I say that. I don’t mean bullish or bearish, I just feel funny about this. 🙂

    The triangle way way too obvious.  Everyone and their gay brother is talking about it. So that means it won’t pan out. 

    • Please refrain from posting the links, simply click your name would enough to bring anyone to your blog. Thanks.
