Major Benchmarks Short-term Oversold

The four major market benchmarks are officially in a short-term oversold state with the market stalwart, S&P 500 (SPY) in an extreme short-term oversold state. The RSI (2) for SPY is currently 3.6. The last time the RSI (2) for SPY hit a level this low was 5/23 and 4/14/ Both instances witnessed a short-term rally in SPY immediately following the extreme reading.

Tomorrow brings the almighty Fed and surely a volatile market after the release at 2:15 EST. My hope is that we get a bit of a washout move which would not surprise me given the recent barrage by the bears.

Three of the sector ETFs I follow (IYR, XLB, XLI) have also moved into a short-term oversold state. Unfortunately for the Sector ETF Extremes strategy the shortest-term oversold readings that I follow are not quite in an extreme state.

The strategies and myself are quietly sitting on our hands waiting for an opportunity to take a position. It has been several weeks since our last trade so I am hoping to see a signal from the recent decline. Cross your fingers!

Have a great night!
