Bullish Engulfing Pattern Engulfs the Market on Last Day of 2012...


Do you believe that market action, price action factors in (discounts) everything?

Why did the SPY drop only -3.24% in the seven trading days leading up to Monday and the deadline for the so-called “Fiscal Cliff”?

Why did the market rally with huge bullish engulfing patterns on the broad index ETFs and many stocks on Monday?

The media continued to use a scary metaphor “Fiscal Cliff” and yet the SPY was down just -3.24%, how can that be?


All nine sectors moved higher on MondayXLE, XLB, and XLI were the strongest sectors.   XLP was the weakest sector.  Many bullish engulfing patterns appeared as SPY volume exploded to 243.7 million shares on Monday as buyers became aggressive. The VIX collapsed -4.70, 20.69% to 18.02.   

Breadth
strengthened on Monday as advancers led decliners…6.05 to 1 on the NYSE and 4.18 to 1 on the NASDAQ…

Monday- strengthened, advancers led
Friday – weakened, decliners led
Thursday – strengthened, decliners led
Wednesday – weakened, decliners led
Tuesday - closed


If short-term trades were exited through target or stop, continue to look for re-entry on a valid signal.  Many entry signals occurred on Monday.
