Major Upside Reversal in all three Major Market Averages

Call it a capitulation day, call it short covering, no matter the name the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the NASDAQ, and the S&P 500 all had bullish reversal days today.

The chart on the ETF that tracks the performance of the S&P500, the SPY shows the reversal as well as any (DJX, QQQ, SPX).

A Chart that Represents What the Stock Market Averages Did Today

The top two arrows indicate where the open and the closing price for the day were.The bottom arrow shows the low of the day. All that pricing between the open and low of the day is what amounted to Price Rejection.

What Price Rejection is/shows is that the markets in this case came down to a price intraday and the markets pushed it away or buyers stepped in and brought prices up away from that low price level.

SPY (SPDR SP 500) - January 24, 2022

This is deemed a bullish move on an intraday basis. The thing to watch for now is if there is any continued follow through to the upside tomorrow and days to come. If so. This could be at least a short-term bottom for the markets.

It could be a bull trap in that the bounce brings in opportunistic investors and or traders and then sells off again.
