We still got a H + S pattern albeit a very unusual one. For lack of a better word, a 'bowtie'.
We are potentially mirroring the move up, just in reverse with a broadening wedge pattern. Whereas the activity from May was a tightening wedge and the head being the failed breakout pattern.
Although the levels are all over the place, conceptually this is a pretty complete pattern. IWM, SPY, DIA, and even QQQQ to a certain extent exhibiting bowties.

Looking for a small low volume bounce early next week. But only 2-3 pts max.

Red lines correspond to the VIX reversal set up.
VIX moved down out of overbought territory on RSI, CCI, and 5,3,3 stochs.
MACD is extremely high.
It is still well embedded in 12,3,3 stoch are so VIX will have some room to move down
if it decides to.
Today may have been a short term bear trap. We will see tomorrow...
VIX printed a black exhaustion canlde today. Breadth was mixed and volume not entirely strong and the close while not great, looked promising.
On the indexes lots of reversal candles.
Looking for SPY to get to the upper end of its consolidation range at around 92-93 and assessing whether to go short.
Right now sitting on modest long position for short term. If we get a large pop tomorrow, will definitely unload a large portion if not all of it. If we gap down again, this set up will probably have failed but the odds of a third gap down in a row seem more limited as the market held some ground today.
Got into decent size position of $QQQ 175 calls @ .22 expiring Fri and smaller $amzn and $nflx. Still in $shak and sold off $rig for only 5...
I am liking the set up for XLE a lot now and XBI I am hoping for some settling so I can board the train. Maybe within 1-2 weeks? Missed ...
Didn't make any changes Fri except close the GLD short as the miners + silver started showing strength and an oversold signal on the 2 h...
