Last night I wrote that "I don't think the selling's done yet" and indeed it wasn't as the Dow dropped another 100 points on Wednesday. Tonight's another Night Owl Lite so let's go right to the bottom line.
Market index futures: Tonight, all three futures are higher at 12:14 AM EDT with ES up 0.31%.
ES daily pivot: Tonight the ES daily pivot falls again from 2060.42 to 2048.75. ES.is now back above its new pivot so this indicator turns back to bullish.
Month right wrong no call conditional batting Dow
January 9 5 5 0 0.643 1433
February 9 3 5 3 0.800 1133
March 8 6 6 1 0.600 222
April 6 4 8 2 0.667 416
May 1 0 1 1 1.000 100
And the winner is...
Tonight, the major charts generally don't look so hot, but the VIX put in only a small gain Wednesday on an inverted hammer that once again tested its upper BB. That's a good sign of a move lower. And ES has been down two days in a row now. I note that it has not put in a losing streak longer than that since the first week of January. And it's now putting in a non-trivial rally that has sent it back above it pivot in the overnight. Also oil is advancing again after putting in a long spindly doji star on Tuesday. So call me crazy but I'm going to go with that and go out on a limb to call Thursday higher.
