SHORT-TERM: 90% CHANCES A GREEN DAY TOMORROW
- 90% chances a green day tomorrow.
- Maintain the forecast mentioned in 03/25 Market Recap, expect some weakness this week.
- Trading wise, I longed at the close but if the market kept selling off tomorrow, I’d be on the bear side. The long position will be held until the stop loss being hit which is fairly large – below the 03/23 lows.
As mentioned in today’s After Bell Quick Summary, although there’re some chances that today’s intraday high is the 3rd push up (as per my evil plan) but since the RSI negative divergence is not large enough, so chances are better that we may see the 3rd push up tomorrow.
The two evidences listed below not only argue for a green day tomorrow but also are the reasons that I’m willing to bet my face (well, do I still have face?) on maintaining the forecast mentioned in 03/25 Market Recap that we’ll see some weakness ahead.
Statistically the Bearish Engulfing formed on today’s SPY daily chart means 90% chances a green day tomorrow. However it also shows a little bearish bias in 5 days.
6.5.2b Seasonality – Last Few Days of the Month, pay attention to green arrows, the chart basically says, likely green tomorrow but not pleasant the day after tomorrow and the day after the day after tomorrow. LOL
The 3rd evidence argues for a short-term pullback at least. 6.4.3a SPY Bearish Reversal Day Watch, even not long ago when nothing bearish ever worked this chart sill stood, so I think the pattern is pretty reliable.
The last but not the least, let me answer the question raised in today’s After Bell Quick Summary: The 290+ ISEE Equities Only Index readings are very extreme, even within the top 10 extreme readings in the entire ISEE Index history. This means the retailers are way too bullish therefore I don’t think it’s a bullish sign. To make things worse, the chart below shows, clearly when retailers were buying calls like crazy, OEX option traders, who historically proven to be always on the right side of the market, were on the bear side, so again, I don’t think a 290+ ISEE Equities Only Index readings are bullish.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: BULLISH IN 3 TO 6 MONTHS
SEASONALITY: BEARISH 03/31, BULLISH 04/01
