REFRESHED Companion Chart for Market Bias Review, Issue #177

Tuesday, January 24, 2017, 2245ET
UPDATED Market Bias for Issue #177

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is LONG SPX as of Tues Jan 24 at 2280.07
Our previous Market Bias was SHORT SPX as of Thur Jan 19 at 2263.69


            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Secondary Profit Target = 2320
SPX Primary Profit Target = 2300
SPX BreakEven Stop (Last Close) = 2280
SPX Money Management Stop = 2255


Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY 02/10/2017 227 Calls
SELL SPY 02/10/2017 232 Calls
You need to execute both legs and hold it as a Call 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.

Notice of Change of Market Bias with Timer Digest


Dear Jim,

With the strong move we are witnessing today in basic materials, banks, industrials, automotive & technology we should no longer be SHORT SPX.

Therefore, as of the Close today, we are getting LONG SPX………

Market Timing Charts, Analysis & Commentary for Issue #177


Timer Charts of S&P-500 Cash Index (SPX) + NASDAQ-100 Cash Index (NDX)

Most recent S&P-500 Cash Index (SPX): 2271.31 down -3.33 (down -0.15%) for the week ending Friday, January 20th, 2017, closed near its +1 sigma.

SPX ALL TIME INTRADAY HIGH = 2282.10 (reached on Friday, January 6, 2017)
SPX ALL TIME CLOSING HIGH = 2276.98 (reached on Friday, January 6, 2017)

Current DAILY +2 Sigma SPX = 2284 with WEEKLY +2 Sigma = 2310
Current DAILY 0 Sigma (20 day MA) SPX = 2265 with WEEKLY 0 Sigma = 2192
Current DAILY -2 Sigma SPX = 2246 with WEEKLY -2 Sigma = 2074

NYSE McClellan Oscillator = -26 (-150 is start of the O/S area; around -275 to -300 area or lower, we go into the “launch-pad” mode, over +150, we are in O/B area)
NYSE Breadth Thrust = 49.75 (40 is considered as oversold and 65 as overbought)

Once again, SPX failed to provide any price expansion in either direction. We saw a good amount of intraday vol, specially before and after inauguration of DJT 45.



Canaries [in the Coal Mine] Chart for DJ TRAN & RUT Indices

200-Day MA DJ TRAN = 8147 or 13.2% below DJ TRAN (max observed in last 5 yrs = 20.2%, min = -20.3%)
200-Day MA RUT = 1225 or 10.4% below RUT (max observed in last 5 yrs = 21.3%, min = -22.6%)

DJ Transports ( proxy for economic conditions 6 to 9 months hence) has a minuscule uptick, amid a noisy trading backdrop.
Russell 2000 small caps ( proxy for Risk ON/OFF) sold off steadily last week. Risk is still ON, albeit, momentum reverting back, IOHO.



DeTrenders Charts for SPX, NDX, TRAN & RUT Indices

50-Day MA SPX = 2232 or 1.7% below SPX closed on Friday (max observed in last 5 yrs = +8.6%, min = -9.3%)
200-Day MA SPX = 2150 or 5.6% below SPX (max observed in last 5 yrs = 15.2%, min = -14%)

All of our eight De Trenders remain positive. The De Trenders for DJ Tran & RUT will continue to be harbingers of future price hehavior in broad indices.



HA_SP1_Momo Chart

WEEKLY Timing Model = on a BUY Signal since Friday 12/16/16 CLOSE at 2258
DAILY Timing Model = on a SELL Signal since Wednesday 1/18/17 CLOSE at 2272
Max SPX 52wk-highs reading last week = 19 (over 120-140, the local maxima is in)
Max SPX 52wk-Lows reading last week = 8 (over 40-60, the local minima is in)
HA_SP1 at just about its +1 sigma channels
HA_Momo = -1.2 (reversals most likely occur above +10 or below -10)



Vol of the Vols Chart

VIX is currently at its -1 sigma level at 11.5 (remember it’s the VIX’s vol pattern (its sigma channels) that matters, and not the level of VIX itself (this is per Dr. Robert Whaley, a great mentor and the inventor of original VIX, now called VXO). VIX usually peaks around a test of its +4 sigma).

The VOL Complex moved modestly this past week (less one sigma).



5-day TRIN & TRINQ Charts

Both NYSE & NASDAQ 5-day TRINs are again NEUTRAL for now.



Components of SPX above their respective 200day MA Chart

This past week, this scoring indicator was again flat-lined between 69% to 70%.



SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) Chart

Last week SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) continued to rise steadily and finally closed at about its +2.5 sigma at 146. (normal = 120-125, range 100-150). All is no longer quiet on the Eastern & Mid-Western Fronts.... stay tuned sailors for the other shoe to drop soon.



3-month VIX Futures Spread(VX) Chart

Our 3-month VIX Futures Spread (LONG FEB & SHORT MAY) did not change much last week and closed at -3.3 on Friday. NO SIGNAL HERE.



HA_SP2 Chart

HA_SP2 = 54 (Buy signal <= 25, Sell Signal >= 75)

SP2 went sideways and ended only slightly lower.



US Treasury T-Notes & T-Bonds Yields Chart

The YTMs on the long end of Treasury Complex rose slightly while the 91-day T-Bill's EBY dropped a tad.
