The Squeeze Is On

The Squeeze Is On

by The MoleSeptember 28, 2020

Last Friday I warned my subs to not yield to the bearish exuberance peddled across the financial MSM and to instead consider exploratory positions in select tech related symbols. Like the rest of you I don’t have a crystal ball. But what I do have is access to over half a century of statistical data which strongly suggested that week #40 had good odds for a short squeeze. At least judging by the overnight session a first attempt to bang the open into a gap appears to be in the works.

Unless we see an immediate pullback in the next hour the SPX should open around the 3340 mark (fair value of the ES currently being around -11). That’s over 40 handles off the Friday close and is guaranteed to rattle a few cages.

Monday is stats day, so let’s dive right in starting with the weekly Sharpe ratio. Which stands at 0.20 for week #40, comfortably above the median for the year.

We are far from being out of the woods with two more negative weeks ahead of us until we hit the traditional Santa rally season. Of course this being 2020 in combination with the U.S. presidential elections anything can happen between now and Nov. 3rd.

Percent positive is at 62% and you know what I’m going to say about that. Exactly, I’d take those odds any day.

More statistical goodness below the fold for my intrepid subs:
