Comparing The 2010 & 2011 Ranges

So far since the big sell-off in the summer, we have been stuck in a big range which we just barely broke out of a few trading days ago. Everyone has heard the phrase “History repeats”; well I like the phrase “History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” If you take a look back to Summer of 2010, when we had a similar range after a big sell-off (flash crash), you would start to notice many similarities.
- Big range in which it paid to buy the bottom, sell the top (until it did not of course)
- Volatility high
- “Fake breakdown” after the initial crash
- Breakout? (Yet to be seen if this was the breakout to lead us back into the bull market)
- Very high Bearish sentiment near bottom (+ Death cross!)
Take a look at the charts below, do they look similar?
