Market Bias, Issue #156

Our current Market Bias with Timer Digest is SHORT SPX as of Monday August 1 Close 2170.84
Our previous Market Bias was FLAT SPX as of Friday July 22 Close 2175.03

This WEEK’s Trade = SHORT the Market using SPX or SPY Put Spreads

SPX First Profit Target = 2150
SPX Second Profit Target = 2140
SPX Money Management Stop = 2180

BOTTOM LINE: Most big players are still at the Hamptons hanging out with our targets this week are on the tighter side. Next week we shall expand them a tad more.

Note: Once one of our SPX targets is hit (Profit or Money Management), our Option/ETF trade for that week is over. Go to Cash and wait for the next PMT Issue.

VIX finally moved up. This shockwave is still in progress.
