We wrote during the week-end:
"After Thursday's selloff, the market achieved a small pullback, retesting a key resistance. We believe this move could be a 4th of 1. Then we should have a lower low early next week followed by 3 to 5 days of consolidation. A sharp decline should start (3rd wave) after this consolidation."
At this stage, we are not convinced that 1309 was the low we were waiting for: we believe we can print one marginal low around 1300-1305 before the 2 to 5 days consolidation period (but the short term bottom could already be in). During this period, we should retrace 38.2% to 50% from previous decline.
Looking at our indicators, we can notice that the Sigma Trend Index (STI) is in negative territory (from '4' to '-2').
The Breadth Index is also in negative territory (red line):
Looking at our short term sentiment index, it is important to notice that the panic level is very low. So, we have a long way to go before reaching panic level (panic: blue line, euphoria: red line)
Both the Sigma Trend Index and the Breadth index are in negative territory, this tells us that the downtrend is taking control of the market (once again).
We consider that the market is close to a short term (intermediate) bottom/consolidation phase. Thereafter, we should have a dramatic sell off: 1200 is our first target but the final low could be much lower.
