Mid-week market update: In my weekend post (see Buy the dip!), I wrote that despite my tactical bullishness, "traders need to allow for a brief rally, followed by a sharp drop to a washout low before this shallow correction is over". We are finally seeing signs of an oversold market and a short-term capitulation.
There were a number of signs of a short-term bottom. On Monday, the VIX Index closed above its upper Bollinger Band (BB), indicating an oversold condition for the market (see Three bottom spotting techniques for traders). As well, the SPX has been testing support located at its 50 day moving average (dma) in the last two days.
