Market Bias for Issue #211

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is LONG SPX as of Friday SEP 29 at 2519.36
Our previous Market Bias was SHORT SPX as of Monday SEP 18 at 2503.87

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 2550
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 2535
SPX BreakEven Stop (Last Open) for last 20% of our position = 2521
SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2505

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday OCT 20 252 Calls
SELL SHORT SPY Friday OCT 20 255 Calls
You need to execute both legs and hold it as a CallSpread.

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.

200-Day MA DJ TRAN = 9279 or 6.8% above DJ TRAN (max observed in last 7 yrs = 20.2%, min = -20.3%)
200-Day MA RUT = 1392 or 7.1% 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) was on a roar again, making another ATH.

Russell 2000 Small Caps Index (proxy for Risk ON/OFF) continued its moonshot.... RISK is back ON big time.

DeTrenders Charts for SPX, NDX, TRAN & RUT Indices

50-Day MA SPX = 2473 or 1.9% above SPX (max observed in last 7 yrs = +8.6%, min = -9.3%)
200-Day MA SPX = 2389 or 5.5% below SPX (max observed in last 7 yrs = 15.2%, min = -14%)

HA_SP1_Momo Chart

WEEKLY Timing Model = on a BUY Signal since Friday 12/16/16 CLOSE at 2258
DAILY Timing Model = on a BUY Signal since Friday 9/29/17 CLOSE at 2519

Vol of the Vols Chart

VIX currently stands at 9.5, right 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).

Last week, VIX managed to trade in 9 handle. One more sigma will put VIX in high-8 handle.

5-day TRIN & TRINQ Charts

Both NYSE & NASDAQ 5-day TRINs are in NEUTRAL Zone. No Signal here.

Components of SPX above their respective 200day MA Chart

During the past week, this scoring indicator rallied further but could not test 75% level. We continue to remind you so you are aware of multiple divergences during CY2017.

SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) Chart

Last week SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) went down and then came back up to close at 137.5, or its zero sigma (normal = 120-125, range 100-150).

Is all quiet on the Eastern & Mid-Western Fronts? Smart Money thinks so.
