No real direction. Bulls need to prove themselves by taking 3640ish and bears need 3500. We are just ranging until that happens. The 5 minute is a bit interesting. Why did that 3542ish area hold? That should have been really week and fallen down to 3500.

Possible head and shoulders on this timeframe. I know it’s not a “true” H&S but it gives us something to think about. Bulls need this over that right neckline with energy so a 1 tic of 3565 probably won’t do it, but a break of 70 to 75 might. A breakdown of the right shoulder should take you to the middle of the left shoulder and possible the bottom

Sunday Homework

Someone asked me on Friday for some comments on the SPX or S&P500 cash charts.

We are basically in a range from 3200 to 3590. Call it 32-3600 or about 400 handles. a break of the range should move about 1/2 the distance of the range. So, a break above should take price to 3700. That is the strategic area I would look to be thinking of taking shorts. A breakdown should take us down to the 3200 area. That is also the 200 EMA and I would be comfortable thinking of longs near that area.

The 50 % move, if you wanted to join the ramp up for the last few days would be to buy the 3400. Tactically, that area would be an interesting buy with a stop under the .618 area.


Swing Update 4

This is my current swing position. I have one left with a stop in place. Many people have asked me when am I going to take off that single car. This is the Dec contract so either when we make new highs, it hits that stop at plus 10ish or I have to close it because the contract is expiring. The entire point of a runner is to let it run. I have already made enough off this trade. Let’s see what happens. One of these days I will have a swing with a +500 handles. The logic for the trade has passed. $nymo is no longer -80+ it’s back to 0 so the market has done what I expected it to do. Now I am just gilding the lily so to speak.
