Market Bias for Issue #297

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is LONG SPX as of JUN 28 at 2942
Our previous Market Bias was SHORT SPX as of JUN 25 at 2917

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 3020
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 2990
SPX BreakEven Stop (Current Price) for last 20% of our position = 2971
SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2945

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday JUL 19 296 Calls
SELL SHORT SPY Friday JUL 19 301 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.

Spot VIX stood at 15.08 Friday night, at 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).

Vols of the Vols were flat last week. Summer days are here again.

US Treasury T-Notes & T-Bonds Yields Chart

Last week the whole YTM Curve took another massive plunge. The yield curve is getting a tad more inverted...... Maury & Grumpino (plus Trumpkins) are still, in eternal words of Pink Floyd: Comfortably Numb.
