Commitment of Traders (COT) Report: S&P 500 AS OF: 2021-01-12 | US Investor Sentiment, % Bull-Bear Spread 27.42% for Wk of Jan 07 2021
Though US Investor Sentiment, % Bull-Bear Spread is at 27.42% and that is on higher side it might come down if we some fast and furious correction and if it comes near 0% that would be a time to buy again in quarter 1.
Institutions unwind-ed their decent longs & heavy shorts, if this heavy shorts unwinding continues and further long buildup is seen on the institutional side, then there is a high probability to test the resistance of $4000 in the first quarter of2021, however short term fast and furious correction cannot be ruled out have a buy on dip strategy.
