Solid Confirmation Signal

A  bear trend is defined by a series of lower tops and lower bottoms.  When there’s a move above the prior top its usually a strong confirming signal that a bottom could be in place.  Soon after the opening S&P 500 (SPX)  session on 11/03/20 there was a move above the short-term peak made 10/29/20.  This is a solid confirming signal of the suspected SPX  bottom made 10/30/20. In just two trading days the SPX has retrace close to 50% of the fourteen-day decline from the high made on 10/12/20. So far, the bulls are showing more strength than the bears exhibited on the October decline.

My 11/02/20 post recommended buying non-leveraged SPX related funds on the open of the SPX session 11/03/20.  One of the reasons for recommending a trade at the open of the  session is because statistically the SPX high or low for the day is usually at or near the open.

Today 11/03/20 SPX opened up 26.50 points from the prior trading day close.  The SPX opening price was 3336.30 the low for the day was 3336.30.
