Market Bias for Issue #209

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is SHORT SPX as of Monday SEP 18 at 2503.87
Our previous Market Bias was FLAT SPX as of Thursday SEP 14 at 2495.62

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2516
SPX BreakEven Stop (Last Open) for last 20% of our position = 2504
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 2450
SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 2425

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday OCT 6 249 Puts
SELL SHORT SPY Friday OCT 6 244 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.

Market Timing Charts, Analysis & Commentary for Issue #209

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

Most recent S&P-500 Cash Index (SPX): 2500.23 up +38.80 (up +1.58%) for the week ending on Friday, September 15, 2017, which closed just about its +1.5 sigma.

SPX ALL TIME INTRADAY HIGH = 2500.23 (reached on Friday, Sep 15, 2017)
SPX ALL TIME CLOSING HIGH = 2500.23 (reached on Friday, Sep 15, 2017)

Current DAILY +2 Sigma SPX = 2509 with WEEKLY +2 Sigma = 2501
Current DAILY 0 Sigma (20 day MA) SPX = 2463 with WEEKLY 0 Sigma = 2440
Current DAILY -2 Sigma SPX = 2417 with WEEKLY -2 Sigma = 2380

NYSE McClellan Oscillator = +99 (-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 = 56.5 (40 is considered as oversold and 65 as overbought)

Many weeks ago we stated that 2500 for SPX is a crucial 'PRICE OCTAVE.' Many emails & tweets came in asking what does that mean. Well, best is to ask the shorts LOL.

200-Day MA DJ TRAN = 9254 or 3.2% above DJ TRAN (max observed in last 7 yrs = 20.2%, min = -20.3%)
200-Day MA RUT = 1387 or 3.2% above RUT (max observed in last 7 yrs = 21.3%, min = -22.6%)

DJ Transportation Index (proxy for economic conditions 6 to 9 months hence) is on a roar again. We love it.

Vol of the Vols Chart

VIX currently stands at 10.17, or just about 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).

Last week, VIX complex continued to sell off.

5-day TRIN & TRINQ Charts

NYSE 5-day TRIN is near its SELL Zone. No Signal here for NAZZ.

Components of SPX above their respective 200day MA Chart

The Long OCT17, Short JAN18 Spread exhibited a shallow negative slope. The market is bid now.
