Jim Stack notes: “Each of these three previous extremes saw sizable market gains in the months that followed. So this would suggest a high probability of a pre-election rally rather than a bull market post-mortem.” The caveat to this is that where an oversold extreme leads to a short-term bottom, it typically takes several weeks after this extreme. “Don’t be surprised by more fitful, frustrating and fearful days in the meantime.”
