Bollinger Bands Indicator:

Conventional Interpretation: The Bollinger Bands are indicating an oversold condition. An oversold reading occurs when the close is nearer to the bottom band than the top band.

Additional Analysis: The market is oversold and appears to be finding some support. Confirming this, the market just signaled a bullish key reversal off a 9 bar new low. Look for a bottom in this area.

Momentum Indicator:

Comm Channel Index Indicator:

Conventional Interpretation: CCI (-105.01) recently crossed below the sell line into bearish territory, and is currently short. This short position should be covered when the CCI crosses back into the neutral center region.

Additional Analysis: CCI often misses the early part of a new move because of the large amount of time spent out of the market in the neutral region. Initiating signals when CCI crosses zero, rather than waiting for CCI to cross out of the neutral region can often help overcome this. Given this interpretation, CCI (-105.01) is currently short. The current short position will be reversed when the CCI crosses above zero. The market just signaled a bullish key reversal off a 9 bar new low, suggesting closing any shorts here.
