SPY SETUP ENTRY DATE STOP LOSS INSTRUCTION: Mechanic signals, back test is HERE, signals are HERE.
TRADING PLATFORM:
SSO/SDS, UPRO/SPXU
Non-Stop 09/07 L N/A
ST Model Buy mode doesn’t mean long, a 2nd buy signal is needed to enter long.
Short-term N/A N/A Trend is UP.  I hold long position over night.
My Thoughts A correction is just a matter of time, but until price confirms, I’d rather long than short, with caution though.

SHORT-TERM: INDU DOWN FRIDAY AND FOLLOWING MONDAY WAS A BAD SIGN, SPX 3 CONSECUTIVE DOWN DAYS WAS A BAD SIGN

As mentioned in today’s After Bell Quick Summary, SPX still stuck in a trading range so the short-term direction is unclear. However, there’re two more bad signs I’d like your attention. One is not about short-term but I’ll just put them in this short-term session.

INDU was down last Friday and today (following Monday), according to Stock Trader’s Almanac:

For over 30 years, a down Friday followed by down Monday has frequently corresponded with important market inflection points that exhibit a clearly negative bias, often coinciding with market tops and, on a few climactic occasions, such as in October 2002 and March 2009, near major market bottoms.

DownFridayAndMonday

SPX has been down 3 days in a row which should never ever happen in a strong uptrend. The chart below highlighted all the first occurrence when SPX had 3 consecutive down days since the March 2009, you can see a clear negative bias ahead.

SPX3ConsecutiveDownDays

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: COULD BE WAVE 5 UP TO SPX 1300+, PIVOT TOP COULD BE AROUND 01/05 TO 01/12

See 01/07 Market Recap for more details.

SEASONALITY: NO UPDATE

See 12/31 Market Recap for the January seasonality chart.

  1. Please make sure you understand how to use the table above. The purpose of this report is to provide info so contradictory signals are always presented.
  2. Conclusions can be confirmed endlessly, but trading wise, you have to take actions at certain risk level as soon as you feel the confirmation is enough. There’s no way for me to adapt to different risk levels therefore no trading signals will be given in this report except the mechanical signals such as SPY ST Model.
