The ST Model Was Right And We Remain Long

The market moved sharply higher on Friday following (bad) payrolls data. It seems stupid to get such a powerful rally on poor numbers but we don't believe the numbers were the main trigger for this rally. The real reason behind this rally is the extreme oversold conditions in which the market was early next week. And the good news is that our ST model was, once again, able to detect this situation and to catch the move.

Looking at the Sigma Whole Market Index, we can notice a second consecutive big white candle on Friday. This tells us that current rebound is highly impulsive. It could be a counter trend move but it is so powerful that we give a very low probability to this possibility (but this remains possible).

We don't see any immediate resistance at this level but as the market retraced roughly 61.8% of recent decline, we could have some kind of consolidation early next week (2 to 3 sessions) before resuming the uptrend if the trend is up. If recent jump was just a bounce back in a declining market, we should get a nasty decline by the end of next week.

Sigma Whole Market Index Chart

Looking at our indicators, the Swing is at '5', telling us the move was highly impulsive (on Friday) and confirming our chart analysis. The Sigma Trend Index is at '-1' (close to its zero line). So, according to our ST model, this rebound could still be a bounce back in a downtrend (because the STI is not in positive territory yet).
