SHORT-TERM: NO FOLLOW-THROUGH AFTER EACH HUGE UP DAY, DOESN’T FEEL LIKE A STRONG UPTREND
As mentioned in yesterday’s report, today must close in green otherwise it’d be a bad sign for having 2 consecutive red days after a Major Accumulation Day. Unfortunately, not only today we have 2 red days in a row but also it’s a bearish reversal day. From charts below we can see, both cases could mean some short-term weakness ahead.
Frankly, although now feels that Fed or YES WE CAN are capable of anything therefore the stock market would fly to the sky, but in reality:
- All the 3 huge up day we had recently had no follow-through thereafter while instead each kept having more and more reversal like bars.
- As mentioned in 10/04 Market Recap, QQQQ down 6 days in a row normally happened only in an intermediate-term downtrend.
Put all above together, this simply doesn’t feel like a strong uptrend. So my conclusion is:
- Although I’m not implying that you should short but at least don’t get too bullish now.
- 10/05 to 10/11 may indeed contain an important pivot date which could mean a top of some kind.
- For intermediate-term, I’ll reiterate the bearish view.
If Friday’s report comes in significantly stronger and the market opens up, history says not to chase it. If the report comes in much weaker than expected and the market opens down, investors should look to buy on weakness.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: SEEMS 11%+ RISE GUARANTEED BEFORE YEAR END, I’M SKEPTICAL HOWEVER

- Conclusions can be confirmed endlessly, but trading wise, you have to take actions at certain risk level as soon as you feel the confirmation is enough. There’s no way for me to adapt to different risk levels therefore no specific buy/sell signals will be given in this report except the mechanical signals such as SPY ST Model.
