I’d pull up a chart of the SP 500 pretty damn quick if I was you, and consider how far we’ve fallen and “how fast”.
Today’s move upward doesn’t come CLOSE to being considered a “reversal” as we’ve barely even “bounced” – with respect to the near term technical damage done over the last couple of days. Even now the index looking weak moving into the late afternoon.
I usually don’t make short-term calls on U.S Equities but as I see things from a purely “technical perspective” you might expect another day, or even another day or two – before we roll over and take the next leg lower.
That’s right “the next leg” lower.
Long USD trades turned out fantastic, although I’m not at happy with the way I traded it. Another 1% added here with short EUR and CHF providing most of the juice. Now leaning pretty heavy on the short NZD trade moving forward. JPY pairs still suggesting more JPY strength to come so….beware! The ol SP “risk o meter” is still very much so pointed – lower.
