Market Bias for Issue #294

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is SHORT SPX as of Jun 11 at 2885
Our previous Market Bias was FLAT SPX as of Jun 7 at 2873

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2915
SPX BreakEven Stop (Current Price) for last 20% of our position = 2886
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 2855
SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 2830

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday JUN 28 288 Puts
SELL SHORT SPY Friday JUN 28 283 Puts
You need to execute both legs and hold it as a Put-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.

Vol of the Vols Chart

VIX usually peaks around a test of its +4 sigma).

Vols of the Vols have collapsed. Keep your bet size in check. Long hot Summer days are here. Go to the Beach.
