A commenter, Frank, on the recent Spyx study questioned how the setup has worked more recently as opposed to over the entire period from 1995-present.

This setup has been especially bearish during the current bear market. Below are all instances since October 2007 along with their 4-day returns:
Ten for ten to the downside in this case.
