Market Hits Short-Term Extreme

As you can see from the overbought/oversold levels below the market has hit a short-term oversold extreme. The Wilder RSI (2) for both the NASDAQ 100 and the S&P 500 have both moved below 5 which means that the probability of a short-term bounce (1-3 days) looks imminent.

What does this mean for the ETF Extremes and Sector ETF Extremes strategy? It means that if the market opens lower on Monday a trade in both strategies looks likely. Of course, there are a few other proprietary factors that I need to consider, but with that being said the probabilities for a short-term bounce among several of the indices I follow are there.

As has been the case since the beginning of the year I will be placing the trade for all the world to see on www.collective2.com. You can go directly to the ETF Extremes strategy page by clicking on the following link: http://etfextremes.collective2.com

If you have any additional questions or comments please do not hesitate to email me or post a comment on the blog.

Kindest and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
