Potential Upside Acceleration in the QID (ProShares UltraShort QQQQ)


On one hand, today's stock market action is dreadfully boring -- - perhaps typical of year-end action. On the other, the chart pattern represented by the QIDs (ProShares: 2x the inverse performance of the NDX) suggests that if the current rally extends above 54.10, a month-long congestion area will have morphed into a base or rounded near-term bottom that has potential to trigger upside acceleration into the 57-58 target zone.

As of this moment, however, the month-long pattern still represents a bearish congestion area within the dominant downtrend, which usually resolves itself in the direction of the underlying trend -- in this case to the downside in a spike to new lows projected into the 49.80/50 target zone.
