Technical Picture - Bear Market Bounce Under Pressure

Friday's dismal job numbers pressured the markets. Despite the lower daily volume, the weak close for the day and the week have left the inverse H&S pattern in peril. Pattern failures usually result in fast moves in the opposite direction so we have to watch for the possibility of a rising wedge (red dotted lines). A lower low on higher volume would confirm the bearish pattern.

Yeah, lots of pessimism creeping into the market just ahead of earnings season.
