The dominant cycle favoring bulls as well:

This looks similar to the Oct. 4th market reaction:

OddsTrader RR oscillator v. traditional type oscillator:

As explained in the User Guide, one should expect the RR oscillator to remain overbought in a downtrend market (cautioning not to get long prematurely), oversold in an uptrend market (cautioning not to get short too early), and to match a traditional oscillator in a sideways market. By contrast, in a trending market, a traditional oscillator will give numerous false overbought/oversold signals.
