This is not the case in US but Friday's session looks like a reversal day
The Sigma Whole Europe Index (SWEI) enjoyed a strong rally on Friday. The index is right below a major resistance (pink horizontal line).
Looking at the CAC, DAX and the Eurostoxx, we can notice the situation is roughly the same than on the SWEI. For both the CAC and the DAX, we can clearly identify an uptrend channel (in blue). As we are not at the top end of this uptrend some upside remains possible.
Nevertheless, the Sigma Trend Index in Europe surged to '68' on Friday. This level is well above the key '34' level required for a sell signal. So, if the Swing or the Power Level dropped below '2' in the next 3 sessions, we will get a confirmed sell signal on European Markets.

The ST model uplifted its stop on the DAX:
The Sigma Whole Market Index had a difficult session on Friday. The market printed a huge gap at the open and continued to rally during the first minutes of the session. Thereafter, the market started to decline and it closed well below its intraday high. The market printed a clear 'doji' on Friday.
Looking at some major US indexes, we can clearly see that Friday's session looks like a reversal day: open near the intraday high and close near the intraday low.
The Sigma Trend Index is still far from the key '34' level (at '16'). So, at this stage, it will be impossible to get a 'sell' on US markets.
