Market Bias for Issue #219

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is LONG SPX as of Friday DEC 1 at 2644.22
Our previous Market Bias was SHORT SPX as of Thursday NOV 30 at 2647.38

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 2695
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 2675
SPX BreakEven Stop (Last Open) for last 20% of our position = 2657
SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2625

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday DEC 22 266 Call
SELL SHORT SPY Friday DEC 22 271 Calls
You need to execute both legs and hold it as a Call-Spread.

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.

News from Washington is good & bad. Each time the vols spike, everyone [& his brother] buys the dips. This shall work until it doesn't. Stay focused sailor......

DJ Transportation Index (proxy for economic conditions 6 to 9 months hence) put in her best performance in months with massive ascend on Tuesday thru Thursday of last week. Truly impressive. As we have mentioned here before, huge bars have to respected.

Russell 2000 Small Caps Index (proxy for Risk ON/OFF) also rallied very nicely on said days but it was no DJ TRAN. RISK is definitely ON again.

HA_SP1_Momo Chart

DAILY Timing Model = on a BUY Signal since Wednesday 11/22/17 CLOSE at 2597

Vol of the Vols Chart

VIX currently stands at 11.43, at 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).

Just when we thought that another vol shockwave is over & CBOE might need a GoFundMe page, on Friday December 1st, VIX put in its most massive day with its options volume soaring over 3 mil contracts a new ATH.

5-day TRIN & TRINQ Charts

NYSE 5-day TRIN is in the SELL zone.

Components of SPX above their respective 200day MA Chart

This scoring indicator had a strong week and tested 77.5% area. As as the result, we expect higher prices in SPX shortly.

SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) Chart

Last week SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) closed at ~129, or about its zero sigma (normal = 120-125, range 100-150).

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

3-month VIX Futures Spread(VX) Chart

Oh what a day this timing indicator had on Friday before closing at -2.97. Equity markets are still in short-term overbought zone.

HA_SP2 Chart

HA_SP2 = 79.6 (Buy signal <= 25, Sell Signal >= 75)

On Thursday, SP2 closed at ~89.4 and thus we went short SPX with TD. Little we knew that we shall drop more than 1%., intraday, the very next day.

US Treasury T-Notes & T-Bonds Yields Chart
