While stocks formed a swing low on Friday, they did not deliver bullish follow through on Monday.
If stocks broke above he day 27 high of 4718.50, that would have shifted the odds of stocks entering a melt-up phase. However, stocks closed lower on the day. Monday was day 30 for the daily equity cycle, placing stocks in their timing band for a DCL. Any bearish follow through should send stocks to complete their daily cycle decline. Stocks should break below the day 27 low of 4630.66 and turn the 10 day MA lower in order to complete its daily cycle decline. This would allow stocks to backtest the 4545.85 breakout level and allow sentiment to cool off. Which would set stocks up to emerge from a DCL heading into the most bullish time of the year.
