Market Bias for Issue #298

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is SHORT SPX as of Jul 8 at 2976
Our previous Market Bias was LONG SPX as of Jun 26 at 2942


            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2990
SPX BreakEven Stop (Current Price) for last 20% of our position = 2970
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 2940
SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 2925


Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday JUL 26 296 Puts
SELL SHORT SPY Friday JUL 26 292 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.

Notice of Change of Bias with Timer Digest


Dear Jim,

We wrote to our PMT Members thirty minutes before the Cash Open this morning: while we were not too thrilled to short this market, we also lack the conviction to get long for an extended play and we hope that we would have a better resolution in a day [or so]!!

Well, after reviewing the settlement data this evening, specifically our prop SP2 Indicator, TRAN DeTrenders nearing its death cross, TRINQ flashing a SELL signal and noticing the strong bearish divergence between our prop SP1 vs momo Indicators, it is our belief that our bias should shift to the downside!

Going SHORT SPX……

Current DAILY -2 Sigma SPX = 2852 with WEEKLY -2 Sigma = 2729

NYSE McClellan Oscillator = +97 (-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 = 54.1 (40 is considered as oversold and 65 as overbought)

Nice week for the longs (holidays usually have up bias) with SPX, NDX and yes, finally DJIA made new ATHs.



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

200-Day MA DJ TRAN = 10,340 or 1.4% BELOW DJ TRAN (max observed in last 7 yrs = 20.2%, min = -20.3%)
200-Day MA RUT = 1529 or 3% BELOW 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 a rough week, breaking out on Monday and then giving it all back by Friday's close.

Russell 2000 Small Caps Index (proxy for Risk ON/OFF) faired a tad better and RISK ON may show up shortly.....



DeTrenders Charts for SPX, NDX, TRAN & RUT Indices

50-Day MA SPX = 2885 or 3.6% BELOW SPX (max observed in last 7 yrs = +8.6%, min = -9.3%)
200-Day MA SPX = 2778 or 7.6% BELOW SPX (max observed in last 7 yrs = 15.2%, min = -14%)

ALL of our EIGHT DeTrenders are in the 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, March 8, 2019 CLOSE at 2743
DAILY Timing Model = on a BUY Signal since Tuesday, July 2, 2019 CLOSE at 2873
Max SPX 52wk-highs reading last week = 82 (over 120-140, the local maxima is in)
Max SPX 52wk-Lows reading last week = 2 (over 40-60, the local minima is in)

Vol of the Vols Chart

Spot VIX stood at 13.99 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 dropped dramatically (all the way down to -3 sigma) last Monday and Tuesday. Summer trading days are here again.



5-day TRIN & TRINQ Charts

Both NYSE & NASDAQ 5-day TRINs at or heading to the SELL zone.



Components of SPX above their respective 200-day MA Chart

This scoring indicator went to our target of 75%. If we do not pull back, next target is 80%.



SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) Chart

On Friday, SPX SKEW (Tail Risk) rose pretty sharply to 126.7, now about its +3 sigma (normal = 115, range 100-150).

All quiet on the Eastern & Mid-Western Fronts? well, our beloved HRH Capt. Tiko, KCPE, smells some rock 'n roll ahead.


How to interpret the value of SPX SKEW? (from CBOE white paper on SKEW)



3-month VIX Futures Spread(VX) Chart

This popular timing indicator for identifying tradable bottoms, (now long JUL19, & short OCT19 VIX Futures) hit -2.02 on Friday Close. No signal here.



HA_SP2 Chart

HA_SP2 = 78.8 (Buy signal <= 25, Sell Signal >= 75)

Are we still in a topping formation? we think so + make sure you have plenty of iced tea on hand, per HRH @Capt_Tiko.



US Treasury T-Notes & T-Bonds Yields Chart

For the first time in many moons, the whole YTM Curve shifted up and yes at least Maury is smiling while Grumpino wants to jawbone Fed Chair Powell.
