The stock market managed to bounce from the deeply oversold levels today with the percentage of stocks above their 20 day exponential moving averages in the S&P 500 moving back out the lower zone at 18% to close at 35%. So it almost doubled the amount of stocks in the S&P 500 above their short term moving averages.
So those who use the CAN SLIM method would likely count this as Day 1 of the start of another rally attempt within the base, and hence will be on Follow Through Day (FTD) watch, if it can hold above todays low for the next few days and then have a strong Follow Through Day.
However, there were a number of mega cap earnings results again today, with AAPL and AMZN both reporting.
AMZN reacted poorly to its earnings results and has moved down over -10% in the after hours trade, which will likely cause it to make a Stage 4 continuation breakdown at the open tomorrow. (See below intraday 2 hour chart including the after hours data).
AAPL also reported, and although it moved higher initially, it was quickly sold into and moved lower below the 200 day MA. So that will likely be the key battle zone for it tomorrow, and if it breaks then would likely be a big negative for the overall market. So AAPL could be key as to whether we get a major Stage 4 breakdown or not in the large cap indexes.
