Friday is generally not terribly reliable in being a day where the market bounces from a low. It is one of the least popular days for this to occur (along with Wednesday). But a potential positive about a Friday bounce is that when they do occur, they tend to be the most reliable moving forward. The below tables look at performance following a bounce from a 50-day low. The 1st table looks at performance 1 day later, and the 2nd table looks at performance 5 days later.
In both cases we see that Friday is the day of the week that that shows the strongest odds moving forward. This is true whether you are looking at Net Profits, % Profitable, Win/Loss Ratio, Profit Factor, or Avg Trade. While Tuesday is the most likely day to see a bounce occur, Friday is the day where that bounce is most likely to stick. We’ll see if the bounce that started this past Friday can stick this week.
