Oversold Indicator likes long side

Quick blog post. As mentioned on our Twitter, we currently have a gap fade (going short) trade on right now.

However, as of the close on Friday, our Overbought / Oversold indicators switched from short to long. There has been chatter that the market is due for a big fall -- but contrarian investors often like to see "the markets climbing a wall of worry." The fact that there are some big-time bears out there gives us some comfort with the bullish indicator.

Our long-term and short term stock market indicators are both currently long -- so we are looking to enter the long side soon.

In other futures markets:
  • The Japanese Yen has been wildly strong as traders believe that Japan will not intervene to slow the rise.
  • The Gold rush has slowed for now -- but depending on market action, our systems will look to re-enter the long side at some point.
  • Bonds continue to rally.
