Nov 3 Short Squeeze Continues and Trending Stock Scan

Nov 3, 2015: 2:58 PM CST

The buyers collectively were successful in extending the short-squeeze manipulation of the stock market higher, resulting in the logical bullish price action (via stop-losses of the bears) as the S&P 500 crested above the key 2,100 level.

Today’s session extends the short-squeezed Trend Day of yesterday.

Let’s update our levels for the S&P 500 Index:

In simplest terms, buyers extended the short-squeeze, boosting stock prices to new swing highs in a positive feedback loop suggested by the recent bullish breakout and close above 2,100.

And here’s a direct quote from yesterday’s public mid-day update that still applies today:

“Make no mistake – a continued breakout above 2,100 sets in motion a repeat of the 2010 and 2011 “Repeat Pathway to New Highs” and those who have adapted to this new market reality have profited – while others are helping drive the market higher with their collective losses via buy-to-cover stopped-out short-sold positions.”
