I think a big rally or break down is in the next couple days. I have been holding crash puts and hedging 8 points in the money for a few days. It 's been too weak to break out and too many buyers on every marginal new low. It's too dangerous to go pure long because I have to buy deep in the money only to get 25-30% but risk a lot more on the downside. No, I am just trading safe for now around break even and hoping for a big sustained move soon.

 

A break of 2600 should lead to 100's more down, but since the gap down's always fill, the selling might be about over for awhile.

For the bear case:

 

SPX equal weight seems to be leading down here as price didn't make a lower low, previous instance is marked.

Percent below 200 DMA seems to need to hit 10 or 15 before we hit true bottom

Positive seasonality kicks off next week

Share buyback period starts in earnest after Apple reports since they comprise a quarter of all share buybacks.

 

German DAX and Italy IT30 are leading the decline.   German DAX normally rallies in October and may have broken its huge head-and-shoulder top..

My indicators are neutral.  This is a very unusual market for the last year because of the high market concentration in a handful of stocks.  The breadth is weak on 1-3% down days but it doesn't constitute a washout.

DAX should bounce up from here.............

First big gap up since the top, island bottom, US probably matches EU 2% at minimum. I doubt it fills this time.

Looks like the crash setup is done.

So far all we got is a clean fill of Friday's gap down. Stalled right there.

Gaps and gap filling are parts of a bottom-making process.   I'd not be surprised if the current dip from the earlier spike-up gets bought in the afternoon.  I see the market is going higher into the mid-term..................

Doubled up on puts at 2688, this looks very bearish.
