ST trend: neutral (pullback to ML expected)

Yesterday the market gapped up big then ran higher all day in an impressive show of strength from the bulls. In the o/n it coiled between macro-ML and ML, with bulls managing to hold macro-ML and once ML was won back there was no looking back. TTs helped with a 100% BE Xtick off the RTH open, which we warned in real time in the chat room that if broken out can lead to an up squeeze.

The o/n saw the usual pattern play out after such a strong up squeeze. Continuation into a new high, then pullback starting. The current pullback is expected to test ML. That is the normal expectation. After such a strong squeeze we might get a shallow pullback, just be aware of that option. As long as the ML back-test holds, bulls have the ball. If ML is lost, then macro-ML would be next target, so the coming ML test is a big inflection to watch carefully.

FGSI is showing buyers inefficient on the last bounce, so ML test is almost assured at this point. IGSI is below center line after falling from extreme optimism, while MGSI is coming lower from an unconfirmed high. So not all is rosy for bulls, making ML the key lvl which they must defend to get a shot at higher prices before a more significant pullback.
