Market Bias for Issue #301

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is LONG SPX as of JUL 30 at 3013
Our previous Market Bias was FLAT SPX as of JUL 23 at 3005

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 2930
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 2910
SPX BreakEven Stop (Current Price) for last 20% of our position = 2872
SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 2850

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option
BUY SPY Friday AUG 23 287 Calls
SELL SHORT SPY Friday AUG 23 292 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.

Vol of the Vols Chart

Spot VIX stood at 24.6 on Monday night, at about its +4 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).

This should be a local minima. Now we need to see a confirmation that this shockwave recedes.
