SECOND UPDATE to Companion Chart for Market Bias Review, Issue #263

Thursday, October 25, 2018, 0932ET
SECOND UPDATE to Market Bias for Issue #263

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is LONG SPX as of OCT 23 at 2741
Our previous Market Bias was SHORT SPX as of OCT 17 at 2809


            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 2720
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 2700
SPX BreakEven Stop (Today's Open) for last 20% of our position = 2675
SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2660


Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday NOV 2 268 Calls
SELL SHORT SPY Friday NOV 2 272 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.

UPDATED Market Timing Charts for Issue #263


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

As you can see from the three charts posted today, we were already in an uber oversold conditions Tuesday night. Yesterday's market action was purely news driven by unquantifiable fear of local, home-brewed, political terrorism and market participants had to shoot first and court-martial the combatants later.

WE STAND BY OUR BULLISH CALL of Tuesday and we will issue a trade shortly.

Notice of Change of Bias with Timer Digest


Dear Jim,

Around mid-day today, a number of our prop market timing indicators started flashing short-term BUY signals. We realize this could be a tad premature, but in modern air combat, you must trust your indicators.

These last 4 days were a fast 68-handle net gain in SPX. Cheers…..

Market Timing Charts, Analysis & Commentary for Issue #263


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

Most recent S&P-500 Cash Index (SPX): 2768 up +17 (down -0.62%) for the week ending on Friday, October 19, 2018, which closed just below its -1 sigma.

DJIA ALL TIME INTRADAY HIGH = 26951 (reached on Wednesday, October 3, 2018)
DJ TRAN ALL TIME INTRADAY HIGH = 11623 (reached on Friday, September 14, 2018)
SPX ALL TIME INTRADAY HIGH = 2941 (reached on Friday, September 21, 2018)
NDX ALL TIME INTRADAY HIGH = 7700 (reached on Thursday, October 1, 2018)
RUT ALL TIME INTRADAY HIGH = 1742 (reached on Friday, August 31, 2018)

Current DAILY +2 Sigma SPX = 2992 with WEEKLY +2 Sigma = 2948
Current DAILY 0 Sigma SPX = 2854 with WEEKLY 0 Sigma = 2828
Current DAILY -2 Sigma SPX = 2716 with WEEKLY -2 Sigma = 2707

NYSE McClellan Oscillator = -92 (-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 = 42.4 (40 is considered as oversold and 65 as overbought)

Tuesday was a big day to the upside for SPX but then we sold off three days in a row. I expect a tough open Sunday night on Globex and Monday morning gap-down.



Canaries [in the Coal Mine] Chart for DJ TRAN & RUT Indices

200-Day MA DJ TRAN = 10,808 or 3.4% ABOVE DJ TRAN (max observed in last 7 yrs = 20.2%, min = -20.3%)
200-Day MA RUT = 1620 or 4.8% 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) had another tough week which included a failure to punch thru and close above its crucial 200-day MA.

Russell 2000 Small Caps Index (proxy for Risk ON/OFF) did even worse: could not even reach its 200-day MA. RISK is OFF.



DeTrenders Charts for SPX, NDX, TRAN & RUT Indices

50-Day MA SPX = 2874 or 4.3% ABOVE SPX (max observed in last 7 yrs = +8.6%, min = -9.3%)
200-Day MA SPX = 2766 or 0.6% ABOVE SPX (max observed in last 7 yrs = 15.2%, min = -14%)

Only ONE of our EIGHT DeTrenders is in POSITIVE territory. The DeTrenders for DJ Tran & RUT will continue to be harbingers of future price behavior in broad indices.



HA_SP1_Momo Chart

WEEKLY Timing Model = on a BUY Signal since Friday, June 15, 2018 CLOSE at 2779
DAILY Timing Model = on a SELL Signal since Thursday, October 4, 2018 CLOSE at 2901
Max SPX 52wk-highs reading last week = 8 (over 120-140, the local maxima is in)
Max SPX 52wk-Lows reading last week = 38 (over 40-60, the local minima is in)
HA_SP1 closed at its -1 sigma channels
HA_Momo = -5 (reversals most likely occur above +10 or below -10)



Vol of the Vols Chart

Spot VIX currently stands at 19.9, right 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 & VXN both went sideways, albeit at a higher reading levels.



5-day TRIN & TRINQ Charts

Both NYSE & NASDAQ 5-day TRIN & TRINQ are in NEUTRAL zones.



Components of SPX above their respective 200day MA Chart

This scoring indicator recovered somewhat on Tuesday, but by Friday, it was back down to mid 40s.



SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) Chart

On Friday, SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) closed near 125, right about its -2 sigma (normal = 120-125, range 100-150).

Is all quiet on the Eastern & Mid-Western Fronts? Our beloved @Capt_Tiko still says MAYBE....

3-month VIX Futures Spread(VX) Chart

This popular timing indicator, (long NOV18, & short FEB19 VIX Futures) again closed at +0.15 which is a tad bullish here.



HA_SP2 Chart

HA_SP2 = 35 (Buy signal <= 25, Sell Signal >= 75)

Our coveted SP2 prop indicator could not get over 50 by Tuesday Close.



US Treasury T-Notes & T-Bonds Yields Chart

This past week all YTMs pulled back first and then rose somewhat.
