CPCE is too low. The previous 2 times when CPCE was this low the market wasn't up much thereafter.

Could be a Cup and Handle pattern formed on the SPY intraday chart.

All I want to say today are mainly in the chart below:

  1. CPCE closed at 0.47 which is way too low. The last 2 times when this happened the market consolidated for awhile before pulling back. So if we see a few days consolidation from now on then bulls should be careful. I’m inclined to believe this is what’s going to happen next.
  2. Neither have I any evidences to prove that the pullback was over nor any evidences to prove that the market won’t go to a new high. From pure TA perspective, as long as the 09/23 high remains intact the trend is down. This sounds too later if eventually it proves that bears are WRONG AGAIN. Well, that’s why I have short-term setup incorporating with the Index ST Model I/II. See table above, if the 09/23 high is taken, then because of the short-term long setup recently, the dip was bought, right?
  3. I cannot exclude the possibility that the rebound was just to kiss trend line good bye. Chart 0.0.3 SPX Intermediate-term Trading Signals has even a bigger trend line which drew by most people except that trend line wasn’t 3 point validated. Anyway, even use this trend line, it’s not decisively broken, so still could be seen as a back test. All in all, bears still have hopes. (PS. I don’t really believe this “back test bear friendly” stuff though as I trust more on horizontal lines for support and resistance. I’ve discussed this issue Here.)


1.0.4 S&P 500 SPDRs (SPY 15 min), this chart is “bull friendly”, could be a Cup with Handle pattern in the forming, if so then the target is around $110.39.
