‘My oh my how the turn tables have turned!’ (guess the movie) πŸ˜‰

It didn’t take long for things to dramatically change. We’ve shifted gears and are now predominantly in sideways trends across the major index with a break below last week’s lows confirming fresh downtrends.

On the weekly time-frames each of the major indexes caught support on or around the 10wk line but the character has definitively changed. We shifted from relatively tight and controlled action to wide and loose.

Is this a pullback that should be bought? …time will tell but I’m leaning toward no and here’s why:

From my entire Universe List (formerly what I’d call ‘interesting ideas’) I only found 2 bullish bases, one of which was questionable! That’s kinda like being stuck on the side of the road w/ a flat tire and no gas. I think a best case for the bulls would be continued sideways action and some tightness.




Some interesting shorts developing but nothing I’d put on an action list. The action list is for setups that are fully developed. That I’d place orders on right now and then wait for them to trigger. None of them are good enough for that right now.

There are several on the FOCUS LIST where if they tighten up I’d look to short both for swings as well as day trades. 3 of my favorite short ideas on this list are $GSX $GMAB and $REGN They have the cleanest setups and the lowest group ranks.

There are also several ideas I’m targeting for day trades next week.

All of the day trade ideas have a lot of momentum. I’ll look for the setups down on the 5, 3, and 1min charts while simultaneously keeping the higher time frames (30min, 2hr, daily, and weekly) in view. I want to trade in their direction and be aware of the major support levels. Once I identify something I like and execute, I’ll execute 1 at a time. Focus is key.


DISCLAIMER: Futures, stocks, and options trading involves a substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for every investor. The valuation of futures, stocks, and options may fluctuate, and, as a result, clients may lose more than their original investment. The impact of seasonal and geopolitical events is already factored into market prices. The highly leveraged nature of futures trading means that small market movements will have a great impact on your trading account and this can work against you, leading to large losses, or can work for you, leading to large gains.
If the market moves against you, you may sustain a total loss greater than the amount you deposited into your account. You are responsible for all the risks and financial resources you use and for the chosen trading system.
