SHORT-TERM: STILL EXPECT PULLBACK, NOT SURE WHEN AS THE MARKET MAY STILL HAVE A FEW DAYS UP
Nothing to say today, maintain the forecast mentioned in 09/13 Market Recap: Expect a pullback, but it may occur after a few days small up or consolidation.
From the chart below, a consolidation under an important resistance (red horizontal line) usually has a little better chance to breakout on the upside especially now it could simply gap above the resistance tomorrow morning without any serious fight. Yet, still, unless we see a huge up, I mean really huge, otherwise the negative divergence shown on chart would become much larger that eventually it has to be corrected via a little bigger pullback, if indeed SPY breakout on the upside tomorrow. Besides, don’t forget, if SPY gaps up tomorrow morning unfilled, then it’d be the 18th SPY unfilled gaps which tied the historical record.
The chart below shows divergence between VIX and SPX again and this time it becomes a little larger. Whether it implies a possible trend change, I’m not sure as I don’t know if the Friday’s Triple Witching has any influences on it. Let’s wait and see.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: BULLISH, BUT HOW BULLISH IS TO BE REASSESSED

SEASONALITY: SEPTEMBER IS BEARISH, THE TRIPLE WITCHING FRIDAY IS BULLISH
