Huge surge today with S&P above 1180, VIX down 4% and ratio at 70. All getting too high again I think, everything is up, gold, silver etc. Is this a classic set-up for a fall later or are we in for another burst up? Reminds me of early Jan when 1st week was a rise followed by a correction.

Buying may start tomorrow, but I think Mutual Fund Monday is most likely.

For the last few months, there has been a large inflow of capital into the markets at the beginning of each month. Is there any reason for April to be different?

profit taking took some shine off the S&P with VIX up around 4%. Ratio still above 65. Is the S&P finally about to turn lower? I'd say more money will be taken off the table tomorrow before the long Easter break - we could be looking at sub 65 again soon.

Interesting session so far: the ratio is now below 65 with a rising s&p and VIX. In fact as Ashraf has pointed out VIX has been rising for the last 3 days.

Ashraf

high RSI of nearly 70 on daily chart and the Bullish Percent Index (BPI) of over 90 % show similarity to the situation around january 14th (ca 86 %) ahead of the big sell off

a bullish sentiment has been purposely created by the institutionals to get the possibilty to get rid of their long positions

classical bearish evening star on march 25th at around 18 gmt, a shooting star has been formed ,the pendant to the hammer in early february, the probabilty is now very high that 1180 is the top, confirmation is looming due to the closing of S&P around 1165.

my conclusions big sell off in eurusd for sure, in yen-cross maybe

Now yen weaker, usdjpy broke 92.20 resistance, heading to 93. What do you think, Ashraf? 97 will be the next?

easy Ben ignites the markets again... ratio 71. Guess we're either overshot on the ratio or the 65 has now been blown out - I still think a (small ?) retracement must be on the cards from here in equities.
