New Buy Signal, We Start to Cover Spain

Looking at the chart of the Sigma Whole Market Index, we can notice a small bounce back on Tuesday and a retest (by the south) of the green horizontal line. We are not convinced it is (already) the end of the correction. It looks like a dead cat bounce before a new downleg. Wait and see...

Sigma Whole Market Index Chart

The Sigma Whole Market Index was trading out of its bollinger bands so there is no surprise that we got a bounce back. What is more worrying is the fact we are currently trading below the 50days moving average and this moving average is now declining.

Looking at our indicators, the Swing was at '4' and as the Trend Level (TL) was at '5' on Tuesday, we got a new buy signal.

Sigma Short Term Model Table

We calibrated the different parameters of the ST model on the IBEX. According to the 2 years back testing that we realized on the IBEX, the model generated 70.8% return on 2 years vs 17.7% for the IBEX (chart below). Back testing results were so good that we decided to launch a live test on the IBEX.

Short Term Model versus IBEX Chart

The ST model computed new stops on all indexes. We bought the SPX at US close and we bought the EU positions around 8am CET:
