MARKET MOOD: YELLOW
The summary below is my interpretation of the data in the ‘Market Mood Log’ above:
Scales are tilting toward the bulls on the indexes: Each of the major indexes reclaimed the 50sma last week. Both NASDAQ and Dow put in follow through days and have started uptrends. The other indexes are sideways to sideways + (bullish bias).
The New Highs vs New Lows end the week strong. As the indexes picked up steam, so did the new highs being made. For the first time in over a month the NASDAQ saw triple digit new highs. NYSE had 169 new highs on Friday, a level it hasn’t seen in over a month as well.
Distribution fell off the count this week. There have only been 2 distribution days over the past 10 days and the S&P 500 and Dow are starting to create some breathing room. Another day or 2 and the count will drop to 1.
There are 81 stocks total on the trade ideas list. Mostly B and C level setups. Many of the strongest setups were up and out last week. Seeing a large number continue to setup is encouraging. The relative mediocre quality of the setups tells me to not get too hasty. Patience is key.
6 out of 7 of my open trades are in profit. Quite the turnaround from last week when coming into the weekend only 1 out of 5 were profitable. Sitting was the right move then and we’ll see if it works that way again this week. Most trades had weak closes on Friday. I find it helpful to zoom out to the weekly charts. They tell a different story and from that perspective, the closes were strong.
Over my last 10 closed trades, my batting avg is back to 50%.
HOW I’M PLAYING THIS HAND: My 2 favorite setups heading into the week are ABNB and COIN. My game plan for each is outlined in the action list.

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. You should not engage in trading unless you fully understand the nature of the transactions you are entering into and the extent of your exposure to loss.
