Market Bias for Issue #198

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is SHORT SPX as of Thurs Apr 13 at 2328.95
Our previous Market Bias was LONG SPX as of Tues Apr 4 at 2360.16

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2455
SPX BreakEven Stop (Last Close) for last 20% of our position = 2438
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our postiion = 2415
SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 2400

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday JUL 21 247 Puts
SELL SHORT SPY Friday JUL 21 237 Puts
You need to execute both legs and hold it as a PutSpread.

Note A: Once the Primary Profit Target has been reached, traders are advised to close 80% 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 80% peel-off) is hit, our Option/ETF trade for that week is over. Go to Cash and wait for the next PMT Issue.

Note B: When we change our Market Bias with Timer Digest, You need to go FLAT asap. With PMT Pro, that is before the Close that day and with the basic PMT, at the open of the next day.

The Teflon Presidency of Grumpie continues till our markets wake up to his missteps, and then, we will all have only a few exit doors.

Vol of the Vols Chart

VIX currently stands at 10.02, or just at its -1 sigma (remember it's the VIX volatility pattern ( its sigma channels) that matters, and not the level of VIX itself ( this is per Dr. Robert Whaley, a great mentor and inventor of original VIX, now called VXO ). VIX usually peaks around a test of its +4 sigma).

Vol Indices remained fairly quiet for most of this past week. And again on Monday, we saw another drop in NASDAQ Vol, VXN, from +1 sigma to near its zero sigma on Monday.

5-day TRIN & TRINQ Charts

NASDAQ 5-day TRIN says: SELL BABY SELL but no one is listening, at least not yet.
