SHORT-TERM: 1-2-3 TREND CHANGE STILL POSSIBLE BUT BEARS HAVE NOT MUCH WIGGLE ROOM LEFT
The new high today is not decisive, so the 1-2-3 trend change pattern still is possible, although there’s not much wiggle room left for bears, especially if another huge up day tomorrow then bears will have to wait for the next lengthy top procedure – pullback then rebound to test the previous high then pullback to a lower low, which in another word is, at least bulls can be safe for awhile.
I’ve been blah blah about the chart below, now both price and time target are finally met AT THE SAME TIME, so a top of some kind should be around, well, in theory. Frankly, I personally won’t read much into this theory, as long as there’s not even an intraday lower low (so called 1-2-3 trend change pattern as mentioned above) formed.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: IN WAIT AND SEE MODE, WHETHER THE 01/18 HIGHS IS THE WAVE 5 HIGH REMAINS TO BE SEEN
Since even the short-term I have no answer for whether the pullback is over, so whether the intermediate-term was topped, we’ll have to wait and see.
SEASONALITY: THE LAST 2 TRADING DAYS OF EACH MONTH SINCE AUGUST 2009 WERE BEARISH
