The Bulls Never Die!


Up in the morning, down hard midday, and back up into the close!  Wow, what a wild day it was...

(to watch on youtube, go to:

The market didn't play out exactly as I expected it to, but then again... it rarely does!  I expected it to roll over in the morning and sell off most of the day, and then rally back some on Friday... but it fooled me.  I guess "overbought" isn't the same as "extremely overbought", so the market rallied up in the morning hard... really stretching all the short term charts into very overbought territory.

Then about midday they finally rolled over and sold off fairly quick.  They went down to almost the 117.20 spy FP level, and then reversed back up into the close.  At the end of the day, all the short term charts started to turn back up from their oversold conditions.

This means tomorrow is very likely to rally up in the morning, as the charts are now supporting a move up, and they have another POMO day tomorrow too.  Plus it's a Friday and an option expiration day too.  I believe it's the weekly's expiring this time.

That means they should rally up to pin the spy at a level that they have too pay out the least amount of option holders.  It's usually the "puts" that get squeezed hard on opx day, but not always.  Sometimes they push it down so they don't have too pay out the call holders.

However, tomorrow could go either way?  In the latest Mr. Topstep video, his guest speaker George Cavaligos quoted that "open interest has dropped as the market has rallied the last 2 days", which means that it doesn't need to be propped up as the market makers don't have to worry about pinning the levels because there aren't to many option holders left to pay out on.

This means that they could just allow the charts to play out naturally tomorrow when they finally get overbought around midday as the POMO money will be used up by then, as well as the charts themselves will have worked themselves into overbought territory again.

That doesn't mean that they will let them drop into the close of course, it only means that they don't have any real reason to manipulate the market higher (or hold at the high) because they aren't at risk of losing any money on the small amount of puts left in the market.

But, the government doesn't usually like to let the market drop on Friday as they want people to go out and spend money over the weekend... which a huge sell off on any Friday would make people think twice about spending money on their time off from work.  It's a game the gangsters play to trick the public into thinking that everything is OK (keep your eye on the carrot here in my right hand, while I pick your pocket with my left hand).

Anyway, I'm looking for a move up in the morning as the charts are now pointing back up again.  About noon or so, I'd estimate that they will get very overbought again, are could rollover into the close.  I say "could", because there won't be any more POMO money left to support the market the rest of the day, and there won't be any reason for the market makers to hold it up either.

So, it's free to fall simply based on the charts being overbought again.  But will it?  I don't know?  We'll have too wait and see I guess.  However, if it goes up all day and gets really overbought again, it could set Monday up as a big down day.  Not that I'm calling for one, or believe it will happen, as most Monday's are "Bullish Monday's"... but the charts could be aligned that way by the close tomorrow.

For now though, let's just wait and see.  I'm calling for up in the morning, and it stalling around midday.  At that point it could be held there until the close, or roll back down and sell off in it... probably closing lower then the opening level if the momentum really kicks in.




  1. Nice chart… and yes, the odds favor the bears. But as we all know, the gangsters run the market and can manipulate it higher for longer then the bears can stay in the game.

    But, I do think it will end soon. However, there might not be any bears left to short the market then. It really gets old, the same old manipulation crap that the gangster do everyday. As long as they have that printing press, they can keep extending the sell off for a future date.

    While I think we are almost there, and next week should start the sell off, I wouldn’t bet my last dollar one it… as then I know I’d go broke! LOL.

  2. We are close to a breakout one way or the other, and odds favor the bears right now. But of course there’s always more manipulation that could delay it longer. I just don’t think they can do it for more then a few more days.

    I think we’ll see some selling into the close tomorrow, after the POMO money is used up in the morning session. I also think we’ll see a lot more selling next week too.

    Even if they manage to hold the tape up tomorrow, that leaves Monday looking very bearish, as holding the charts up all day will make all the short term charts very overbought again.

  3. AMZN’s earnings report should make every bear VOMIT!
    Here’s the JIST…
    AMZN missed on Margins my ass…They are expanding their facilities, so they can handle all the tremendous increase in xmas volume they are expecting….the expansion is running into cost over-runs, which is typical.
    tremendous increase in xmas volume
    tremendous increase in xmas volume
    tremendous increase in xmas volume
    I think we are going to get a xmas rally….What ELSE can you think?

  4. after the AMZN earnings report, bear blogs, I’m convinced, are polluting the internet.
    But, we gotta get a pullback…probably happens when I’m, “Somewhere, over the rainbow”.

  5. Buy the weakness, sell into strength is the mantra. It has worked very well. Tax selling starting soon, be advised. Next week I see a downward bias. Dollar upside in nearterm…………………

  6. It’s also in a triangle (5 minute chart) and looks to be a the apex now. I think it’s going to break to the upside, as we still are in the POMO zone… plus we have light volume as traders leave for the weekend, which usually favors the upside.

  7. Market could break either way now, as it still has light volume which favors the upside, but the charts are overbought. It’s a tough call, as they don’t have the juice to fight the charts turning down, but no one is left to sell either.

  8. Yup – really weird day. Looks like the only ones buying are the ones with the POMO money. It appears to be a juggling act between pumping equities and pumping the Euro, trying to break upward.

  9. Yeah, they are trying to hold it in place until the close it seems. It’s making a bull flag, so it could breakout to the upside? Hard too says, as it’s so weak that a failure here would really be bad for the bulls.

  10. Yes, this is a waste of a day. It looks like a pause day for the euro,gold, and crude oil. Dojis setup on the weeklies for the stock indices except Nasdaq which has a hanging man.

  11. A big move is definitely coming next week… but which way? The charts say down, but the Fed’s might have other plans. My gut (which is usually wrong… LOL) tells me we are going to have a surprise over the weekend, and trap a lot of bulls.

  12. That is exactly what it’s setting up to be. Except I didn’t really have anything for the 25th except its 2months from the bottom and my cycles guru does have a cluster of cycles around here but they also extend furthur. There was a phat doji yesterday seen at the March 2009 low and black bars for the Nasdaq and QQQQs. I really don’t have any motivation to put on any more positions but I did just muster enought energy to add another emini put.

  13. Any kind of pumping past this point would be a breeze up to 12000, which would be assinine. But then again, we ARE talking about the Fed.

    “One crash a quarter is all we ask.”

  14. Actually, I was talking about the Fed, heheh. The relationship between the Fed and the equities markets is like the relationship between the Highlander and hard drugs.

    Keep pumping until you crash and die. Then resucitate and repeat until resucitation is no longer possible.

  15. It was showing a low of 696 on TF about 2 hours ago. It’s not showing those quotes there now. Wonder if anyone else caught it.

  16. New – just checked that out and you’re right, chart shows trading activity today on TF??????!!!!!!! Doesn’t make sense, nothing else is open – weird

  17. Another thing I just noticed looking at currency charts is a very drastic move in the DX (US $) after the close Friday, could be a false print
