Very Overbought – Short-term Decline Looks Imminent

The market as a whole is “very overbought” which typically means a short-term reprieve is imminent. It is quite likely that we could see our forst trade in almost six months in the ETF Extremes Strategy. One thing is certain, the probability of a short-term decline looks very likely and I will be taking a close look at a trade tomorrow morning. Of course, this depends on what the futures are telling me tomorrow morning at the open.
