Market Bias for Issue #244

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is LONG SPX as of JUN 1 at 2734.62
Our previous Market Bias was SHORT SPX as of MAY 22 at 2724.44

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 2820
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 2805
SPX BreakEven Stop (Last Open) for last 20% of our position = 2780
SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2760

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday JUN 29 278 Calls
SELL SHORT SPY Friday JUN 29 282 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. The following trading day, we will issue new SPX targets and a new SPY options trade, as long our new market bias with Timer Digest is NOT flat.

This past week we witnessed a very nice run-up in DJIA, SPX, NDX & RUT Indices. Shorts got their clocked cleaned, one more time. Cheers. @Capt_Tiko likes that.

DJ Transportation Index (proxy for economic conditions 6 to 9 months hence) is getting ready to start a classic breakout. Keep DJ TRAN on your watch list this coming week.

Russell 2000 Small Caps Index (proxy for Risk ON/OFF) had another great week to the upside & logged a new ATH on Thursday. RISK is definitely ON.

Vol of the Vols Chart

VIX currently stands at 12.18, just about its -1 sigma (remember it's the VIX volatility pattern aka "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).

VIX attempted to spike twice this past week only to give up most of its up moves. We also saw a good drop in Crude Vol.

5-day TRIN & TRINQ Charts

While NYSE 5-day TRIN is in the NEUTRAL zone and heading for a SELL signal, its NASDAQ brethren, 5-day TRINQ, is nearing a SELL zone.

Components of SPX above their respective 200day MA Chart

This scoring indicator ended up a tad below 65% level, its next target will be in 68% to 72% area. This is another index we need to monitor each day this coming week.

SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) Chart

On Friday, SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) closed near 133.1, a tad below its zero sigma (normal = 120-125, range 100-150).

Is all quiet on the Eastern & Mid-Western Fronts? Again, YES for now.

This coveted prop indicator is now in OVERBOUGHT zone.

US Treasury T-Notes & T-Bonds Yields Chart

This past week, the Notes & Bonds went nowhere fast. The Maurys are not shopping for now. The Vig is under pressure. LOL.
