A Two-Day Pattern With Strongly Bullish Implications

Yesterday I explored a pattern where the SPY made a gap up, a move higher and then closed poorly. It showed bullish inclinations. Wednesday’s bar shared a lot of matching characteristics with Tuesday’s. Below I looked at other times there were back to back bars with such similar traits.



Instances are a little low, but results don’t get much more bullish than this when looking out 1-5 days.

I updated the list below from a December post I did and got a bunch of good comments....so chime in, if there are important things I missed, please comment and I will add.

For me the little summary below was a great "view from 20,000 feet". Imagine that....less than 200 years ago, the British were rampaging through Washington with troops and burning the White House

Can you define how much of a gap is needed to be considered a gap up and how much does it have to push high? I see many instances where SPY meets your criteria but didn't continue up.

Jason,

I think you may be missing the last part of the criteria:

"It also did this yesterday". In other words all the criteria need to be me 2 days in a row.

Best,
Rob
