GANN DAY MOON:SOLAR CYCLE CONCLUSION
04/11-04/15 04/03 : 04/05 04/04-04/13 Next pivot date: 04/11
BULLISH 09/27 Market Recap: 9 POMO within 20 trading days means 14%+ up in 3 months.
02/23 Market Recap: Pullback could last 4 weeks, then 02/18 highs will be revisited.
03/11 Market Recap: Bullish in 3 to 6 months.
04/01 Market Recap: Bullish April.
BEARISH 4.0.1 SPX Long-term Trading Signals: Weekly EMA(13) is way too high above weekly EMA(34).
03/18 Market Recap: Could see lower low ahead.
My Thoughts The pullback since 02/22 may last but the 02/18 high will be revisited in 69 calendar days on average.
SPY SETUP ENTRY DATE STOP LOSS INSTRUCTION: Mechanic signals, back test is HERE, signals are HERE.
TRADING PLATFORM:
SSO/SDS, UPRO/SPXU
Non-Stop 03/31 L N/A Beware the winning rate is below 50%, it’s the gain/loss ratio that matters.
ST Model 03/22 S  1.9*ATR(10) Stopped out of short position on 03/30 with loss.
Poor performance this year, working on better model, will replace this one soon.
Short-term UP 03/29 Low I hold partial long position overnight.

SHORT-TERM: DIRECTION NOT CLEAR, LET’S WAIT FOR TOMORROW

Clueless today, breakout on the upside then we’ll have an Ascending Triangle while breakdown we’d have a Double Top. For now, it’s really hard to say which side weights more, so let’s see tomorrow.

Two charts worth some attentions, neither are extreme enough, so info only.

SPY had 3 consecutive reversal like bars (solid black bar = open high close lower but still above the last close, hollow red bar = open low close higher but still below the last close, both imply that bulls and bears are fighting for the control therefore could mean a reversal is pending) which looks bearish. However, since those reversal bars stopped working recently so I’m not sure if they’d work or not this time.

OEX option traders keep buying put. As I mentioned before, historically, those OEX option traders are usually right, so this is not a good sign.
