We Got Movement

We’re seeing an interesting failure on the equities side today – seems like it took a few people by surprise and so it should! Judging by the participation a large portion of traders has been locked out of the rally and participation continues to wear thin:

I’ve kept telling people to anticipate a sell off but to remain patient as I have not seen any technical context to hang our hat on. That may be changing now as this stab lower may not hold but will help us establish potential sell opportunities if it heads higher. Quite frankly that signal signature on the hourly Zero looks extremely strange and is starting to reek like [...]

Setups Deluxe

Not a very interesting day on the equities side unless you enjoy playing the swings, in which case the sideways range on the E-Mini for instance offered quite some opportunity for jumping in and out. It’s the sort of day when the Zero really shines and not surprisingly it painted a pretty juicy Mole reversal signal during the mid day stab lower – plus note a very distinct signal divergence during the highs:

However what really caught my attention is the repeating pattern that its presenting itself on the hourly Zero panel (the lower panel). It’s starting to look like a heart beat and since it represents participation to the up/down side my conclusion [...]

Way too much chatter on this board and way too little hands on trading.

Wednesday Morning Briefing

Welcome to our morning briefing. Here we are reviewing short term setups ahead of the NYSE opening bell. If you are a scalper or swing trader then these setups may be of interest to you. As usual keep in mind that these are short term setups although they could be used as early entries for more longer term positions.

I’m grabbing a short if the spoos touch 2040 and change – stop above 2045. Low odds of a slide but big payoff. On stop out I’d flip for a long with a stop below 2040. A direction will most likely present itself here before the week is over, this thing is coiled up to the max and ready to jump.

Cable – long with a stop [...]
