Market Update: TLT, TMF

November 29, 2016

Good R/R Entry for Int. Term Position TLT/TMF:

  1. Weekly Quasi-hammer
  2. Reversal forming at 200ma (weekly)



November 11, 2016

Critical juncture for gold:


Market Update: IWM 11/4/2016

November 4, 2016

I’m watching the $IWM as a market proxy. IMO purest market signal right now. Approaching 114 magnet:

  • Weekly 50ma
  • Weekly Lower BB
  • 38% Ret back to Feb. 16 lows
  • Daily 200ma
  • Topping Pattern  (with textbook island reversal) Projection
  • iwm


Market Update: SPY 11/4/2016

November 4, 2016

Market coming into 207-208 int. term support area:

  • Weekly 50ma
  • Weekly Lower BB
  • Daily 200ma

I like the idea of an overshoot of daily 200ma into weekly support (algos like to press prices thru widely watched targets, in this case 200ma, to trigger stops).


AAPL Do-or-Die

November 1, 2016

AAPL is coming into important short-term and intermediate-term support around 112.5~

  • Weekly: Early April Highs and 10ma
  • Daily: 50ma and Lower BB

good r/r with stop 1% below, next support 103-104:


IWM breakdown

October 27, 2016

IWM breaking down from topping pattern…Target 114~:

  • Pattern Projection
  • Weekly 50ma and lower BB
  • Dailly 50ma
