Market Bias for Issue #173

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is SHORT SPX as of Mon Dec 12 Close at 2256.96
Our previous Market Bias was FLAT SPX as of Wednesday Dec 7 Close at 2241.35

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Money Management Stop = 2280
Current SPX (BreakEven Stop) = 2264
SPX Primary Profit Target = 2210
SPX Secondary Profit Target = 2185

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY JAN 6, 2017 227 Put
SELL SPY JAN 6, 2017 217 Put
You need to execute both legs and hold it as a Put Spread.

Note: Once the Primary Profit Target has been reached, traders are advised to close 75% of their position in order to lock in profits. The remaining balance can be carried over with a BreakEven STOP, based on the SPX level at the time of entry, in order to make the trade a zero-risk trade with the final position running to reach the Secondary Profit Target. Once either Secondary Profit or Money Management (BreakEven STOP after the 75% peel-off) is hit, our Option/ETF trade for that week is over. Go to Cash and wait for the next PMT Issue.
