All I want to say today were already in the After Bell Quick Summary. 3.1.2 PowerShares DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund (UUP 30 min), the breakdown of the Head and Shoulders Top looks not very convincing, so a follow-through tomorrow is needed.


3.1.1 PowerShares DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund (UUP Weekly), from the weekly chart we can see that UUP is on the verge of falling down, except the current support there’s nothing below. The fall of the dollar is good for the stock market in the short-term but bad in the long run because it means everything will be more expensive.


Trading wise, a buy signal was triggered by the ST Model today. I’m not confident about this buy signal because 1.0.2 S&P 500 SPDRs (SPY 60 min) now has 13 gaps and in Oct when it had 3 big unfilled gaps within a very short period of time, the market had a sharp correction thereafter. So it’s up to you to decide if you want to follow the buy signal here. The short position entered on 11/11 should be stopped out this morning because for a huge gap up open like today it’s very rare to be a reversal day.

Tomorrow is so called a Turnaround Tuesday, plus the Nov 17 is a potential turn date according to Elliott Wave International, so let’s see if indeed the market reverses tomorrow.
