Market Bias for Issue #334

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is SHORT SPX since JUL 23 at 3235
Our previous Market Bias was LONG SPX since JUL 02 at 3130

            Here are the trade parameters for this week:

SPX Money Management Stop for 100% of our position = 3290
SPX Current Price is = 3241
SPX Money Management Stop for last 20% of our position = 3195
SPX Primary Profit Target for first 80% of our position = 3170
SPX Secondary Profit Target for last 20% of our position = 3130

Action Asset Expiration Strike Option Last Mid-Point
BUY SPY Friday AUG 14 323 Puts 5.25 5.18
SELL SHORT SPY Friday AUG 14 316 Puts 3.15 3.21
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 as our new market bias with Timer Digest is NOT flat.

Components of SPX above their respective 200-day MA Chart

This scoring indicator rallied up to 54% and still pointing up. But that huge divergence with price. As you may recall, for most of the second half of the last decade, this is was a common occurrence and yet we still ended going up.

3-month VIX Futures Spread(VX) Chart

This shifted timing indicator for identifying tradable bottoms, (now long AUG20, & short NOV20 VIX Futures) hit -6.5 at the Close on Tuesday. This is still another overbought reading.

HA_SP2 Chart

HA_SP2 = 45.9 (Buy signal <= 30, Sell Signal >= 70)

This fantastic timing indicator says we are NEUTRAL (equal chance to go either direction) here.
