Crazy up and down market the last few weeks. 60-min system back on a sell. The short-term VIX divergence observed in the last post is met with even more divergence recently. (Chart below has the inverse in the main panel as well as SPX)
I think we are in the midst of a decent correction. One of the reasons why I think so is that we have an approximately month long short-term VIX divergence. This has tended to signal a decent correction in the past.
However, this same chart is yet another reason why I don't think this is a major top / end of the current cyclical bull. The last recovery high happened in conjunction with a new VIX recovery low. We are still not seeing the several month / year VIX divergence that occurred with the 2000 and 2007 peaks. Does this have to happen? No. But I think the odds that we do have a major top without a major VIX divergence is low. And so this is one reason (among many others) why my expectations are for a continuation of the cyclical bull.
Apologies, but I was unavailable yesterday and am still swamped today. 60-min buy signal was triggered at yesterday's open but I could not execute until now, and that is reflected in the newest signal.
My 60-minute system issued a sell signal this morning just after 10 am. I also think this is the end of the current up wave and that we are in store for a decent correction. And no, I don't think this is the 'top'. I think this is just a correction and the cyclical bull market will continue.
