TRADING PLATFORM:
SSO/SDS, UPRO/SPXU
Non-Stop 09/07 L N/A
ST Model Long triggered on 01/14, flatted out on 01/19, no chance to follow though.
Short-term N/A N/A Trend is *UP, not confirmed though.  I hold trapped short position overnight.
My Thoughts Not sure if the much anticipated correction has started, it looks like so though.

SHORT-TERM: NO CLUE, WAIT AND SEE

Whether the 01/18 highs is the high, still no conclusion, although because of the possible Cup with Handle pattern mentioned in today’s After Bell Quick Summary, chances are very good we’ll see a higher high on SPX as early as tomorrow, but, since the 1-2-3 Trend Change pattern allows a slightly little bit higher high, so still to be a bear or bull is a question.

SPY60min

The chart below is from StockTiming, the institutions’ selling is intensifying recently, so it’s a warning sign for sure. But whether it means a top is hard to say, because I have no way to prove that the current negative divergence (which is a must condition to form a top) is the last divergence needed, so again, the direction is not clear, we’ll have to wait and see.

INTERMEDIATE-TERM: IN WAIT AND SEE MODE, WHETHER THE 01/18 HIGHS IS THE WAVE 5 HIGH REMAINS TO BE SEEN

Since even the short-term I have no answer for whether the pullback is over, so whether the intermediate-term was topped, we’ll have to wait and see.

SEASONALITY: THE LAST 2 TRADING DAYS OF EACH MONTH SINCE AUGUST 2009 WERE BEARISH

See 01/21 Market Recap for more details.

  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.
  3. * = New update; Blue Text = Link to a chart in my public chart list.
  4. Trading signals in OTHER ETFs table are mechanical signals. See HERE for back test results. 08/31 L, for example, means Long on 08/31.
