Market Outlook: Lower Low Then Close the Week in Green

SHORT-TERM: LOW WAS IN OR VERY CLOSE, BUT THE REBOUND LIKELY BE ANOTHER SELL OPPORTUNITY

Two cents:

  1. Low was in or very close. However, most likely it's just a tradable bottom not the low.
  2. Bears have at least one more chance to sell the bounce.

Why was low in or very close?

  • The chart below says, VIX weekly rose 40%+, 76% chances green the next week but also 76% chances there'll be a lower low first.

  • As mentioned in the Friday's Trading Signals, Cobra Impulse System detected the low and therefore requested to cover the short position. The chart below shows all the past cases when such a low was detected. Not absolutely the low but should be close enough, shouldn't it?

Why will bears have at least one more chance to sell the bounce?

Still it's the law of inertia, SPY down 5 days in a row means selling pressure is high therefore a V shape reversal is rare, at least the low will be revisited sometimes later. Listed in the charts below are all the past cases since year 2000 when SPY down 5 or more consecutive days, should be enough to prove what I said. The revisit of the low can sometimes be higher low but from the charts we can see that more likely it's going to be a lower low.
