We have been showing this chart because is relative to the current timeframe. We said, “Intermediate term rallies have occurred in the SPX when this ratio reached .75 and lower. The most recent low reading came in at .53 on June 3; it currently has bumped up to .87. Going back to 2010, this ratio reached at least 1.25 before any worthwhile SPX top formed. This week could see a retracement in the SPX but in general the market should move higher in the coming weeks. We will be looking for a bullish setup in the coming days.” Today’s pull back did produce a bullish setup.
The SPY was up four days in a row going into last Thursday. When SPY up four days in a row; SPY closed higher within the next five days 87% of the time with an average gain of 1.1 %. Also on today’s decline the tick and trin did reach panic levels which suggests a low was reached today to as late as two days later which would be Thursday. July 4 is next Thursday (markets are closed) and holiday’s are common to producing reversals in the market. We wouldn’t be surprised if market rallied to the July 4 timeframe.
