Daily Market Analysis for 09 Sep 2011 Close

Welcome to Objectively Defined Non-Ambiguous Market Timing Analysis.

Market Timing Direction: SHORT since Aug 18 Close.

 Direction  Note
Market Breadth Pattern  Bearish I am finally back after two weeks of being away from the market. During this period, I briefly updated that the status of the market timing model remains SHORT as the upside breadth numbers up to August 31 were disappointing. On 09 Sep, we witnessed another round of selling which again triggered my bearish DeadCatBounce selling. This reconfirm our bearish stance established on Aug 18 which on the hindsight was established too early.

SPX has found difficulty in breaking below long term support level at 1,150. If this continue to happen, we might soon exit our bearish stance to neutral.

In a bear market, history has shown that sharp and short-lived bounces occurred frequently. This often induce novice trader to jump into the bandwagon just before the market continue its march down.

Our Market State monitor is currently in a Weak market state. This means we are already in confirmed bear market.

Primary Market Breadth  Bearish The primary market breadth is in bear market territory.
Monetary Conditions  Bullish Monetary base keeps being added into the system significantly. Similarly, short-term interest is still much lower than longer term interest rate. Thus, Interest Rate Pump factor continues to rise.

Note: Any change from previous day summary is highlighted in blue.
