Retaking the former bottom at 1057.60 will indicate short-covering. This could lead to rallies into downtrending angles at 1070.20, 1085.80 and 1097.50 before attempting to breakout over the main tops at 1101.20 and 1106.50.
The market is oversold on the daily chart, but not showing any signs of bottoming. Traders, however, have to watch for a short-covering rally. Aggressive counter-trend traders may want to play the long side, however, those that are short have to avoid getting caught if the market turns or risk giving back most of their profit. If the stock market is getting close to a bottom, the bottoming action is likely to first show up in the Russell futures contract.
