Bulls Making A Break For It On A Bullish Piercing Candle

SMS text alerts and reminders?👈

At hit and Run Candlesticks, we focus on Stocks / Simple Directional Options

The market (SPY), The Bulls, are making a break for it, premarket price is over our $289.60 line, and we may even see the 34-EMA challenged today. A close over $294.00 would be a substantial bullish move and kick the bears in the teeth. But let's take one step at a time. Price action yesterday was fantastic with a Bullish Piercing Candle, as always we need sustained follow-through. Don’t forget we have a 3-day weekend coming up and the Tariffs are slated for September 1, so they say. Yesterday I sent out a note Via TEXT on PFE, and we bought it going into the close. Are you registered for text alerts?

Bullish Piercing Pattern: First, there must be a clear and definable downtrend in progress for the pattern to qualify as a Bullish Piercing pattern. Second, the first candlestick (which appears at the end of the downtrend) must be a black (or red), bearish candlestick. Third, the second candlestick must be white (or green) and bullish. Fourth and finally, the second candlestick (the white one) must open below the black candlestick and close above the black candlestick's midpoint. So if you mark a dotted line through the vertical center of the black candlestick, does the white candle close above it? If so, it can qualify as a Bullish Piercing Pattern. Read More About Bullish Piercing Pattern.

The I path Series S&P 500 VXX Short Term Futures ETN. The VXX closed with a Dark Cloud Cover, once again held back from the $30.25ish level.  As long as the T-Line stays above the VXX, I will be concerned that the VXXX buyers have not entirely left.

How Do You Determine A Trend?

SMS text alerts and reminders?👈

At hit and Run Candlesticks, we focus on Stocks / Simple Directional Options

The market (SPY) How Do You Determine A Trend? First of all, ten traders can have ten different ways to determine a trend, and all ten can be right. (tip) A trend length must match your trading style. We can talk more about that in the trading room. Are your trendlines trending up or down? How about moving averages? I use the T-Line and the 34-EMA, go you your charts and look at the SPY with the T-Line and the 30-EMA, I see the T-Line (a faster-moving average) leading the 34-EMA down (a slower moving average).

Bearish Engulf: Imagine a mountain engulfed in flames. What a sight that would be! When I picture a Bearish Engulfing pattern, I think of that imaginary mountain. Prices are rising upward, creating one half of the mountain, a black candlestick engulfing a white candlestick at the top, and then the inevitable downward movement creating the other half of the mountain. This bearish candlestick pattern is essential for investors to know, and luckily, it's easy to identify and interpret. We've already discussed its bullish brother, the Bullish Engulfing pattern, so today it's time we gave the Bear its turn. Read More About Bearish Engulfs Click Here

Inside Day

The market (SPY) is trapped between $281.95 and $284.00 a 13 point range. The buyers are trying to get price back above $288.70 then $294.00 while the sellers are trying to keep the price below $288.70 and $281.95. It is very tough to trade while the price is stuck in a range with price whipping back and forth. Another big challenge for both the buyers and sellers is all the damn tweets. Following the T-Line Bands can be beneficial when you're trying to follow the trend.

Bitten By The Bear

SMS text alerts and reminders?👈

The market (SPY) was bear bitten Friday and tested the recent lows of early August which was our Dotted Deuce moving average. The bulls and bears are staring at a weekly failed high, Bearish Engulf Above $288.70 would indicate a relief rally may be underway, and under $294.00 we may see a shorting opportunity. A breakout of $294.00 could be a bullish setup to challenge $297.60 and the July highs. The market is in a rough place, and swing traders are in a rougher place, the China Tariff issue and mostly these damn tweets make it very hard to trade. They are a few ways to help; one way is to trade with less money risked or entirely in cash until the storm settles down a bit

Cup And Handle: The “cup and handle formation” is a bullish signal pointing to a continuation of the current trend. It may extend over several weeks or even months and contains specific attributes.
As with any continuation pattern, you rely on confirmation in one form or another. This may occur as a second technical price signal, a candlestick continuation, volume spike, or change in momentum.
There are several parts to the cup and handle. First is the cup, which is a rounded bottom extending over time. As the shape of the cup is completed, expect the handle to emerge. Click for more Cup and Handle Information

The Pinball Set-up: Imagine that you are at a pinball machine. You grab the plunger, pullback and the silver pinball falls back against the plunger paddle. Then you let go of the plunger and the silver pinball catapults up and away from the plunger to hit various targets or bumpers. The pulling back on the plunger builds momentum for a brief opposing move. The bumpers are resistance areas as the silver pinball moves higher. Eventually, the pinball loses momentum and falls back. This visual is the basis for the Pinball Set-Up strategy. Click for more Pinball Set-up Information

The market (SPY) has been bouncing between our Dotted Deuce (200-FWL) period moving average and the 50-SMA period moving average. Mr. Powell is set to speak this morning from Jackson Hole. I suspect the information given today will either pop or drop this market. Above the 50-SMA period M/A we should see a challenge of the July highs and below the 200-SMA period M/A I can see a test of $260.00 after a few drops and relief rally pops. This is a market where a trader must be nimble and follow his/ her rules very close. I know we don’t like to take losses but ask your self when is a $100.00 loos the best trade of the day?

The I path Series S&P 500 VXX Short Term Futures ETN closed yesterday with a Bullish Engulf, without bullish follow-through we don’t have much. Over $26.30 would show fear in the market, and we would look at long VXX trade and adding a few shorts to our portfolio.

Candlestick Patterns: To amateurs and unaware young traders, the fact that candlesticks play an essential role within the world of swing trading may seem absurd. How could candlesticks and the stock market possibly be related? However, the key lies within the shape of a candlestick, which resembles an ancient and reliable Japanese method of graphing stocks. Known as Japanese candlestick charts, these graphs are reliable and easy to read. They allow traders to visually detect selling pressure and buying pressure by studying informative candlestick patterns. Click for more Candlestick Information

The market (SPY) seems hesitant to go anywhere right now ahead of any news coming out of the Jackson Hole meeting. The SPY closed with yet another Doji very near the top of the current chart pattern. If the bulls run we will what to watch resistance starting at $295.50 to $295.70. A close below $290.85 could lead to a test of the August lows or the on of out 200 period moving averages.

The I path Series S&P 500 VXX Short Term Futures ETN. The VXX closed down on the 50-SMA period moving average. Below $25.30 sets up a lower move for the VXX and above $25.30 sets up a higher step $26.30 or higher.

Candlestick Trading Signals Builds a Path

SMS text alerts and reminders?👈

Picture a candlestick: the solid body of the candle, the thin wick above, the shadow below, and (of course) the lovely and fragrant ambiance it creates. From this image, swing traders have created a technique known as Japanese candlesticks.

As you might have guessed, this charting method originated in Japan. The body (also called “the real body”) of the metaphorical candle represents the open and close range, and the body is either filled black (for a close under the open) or left hollow and white (for a close over the open). The thin lines protruding from the top and bottom of the body are known as shadows (or sometimes, “wicks” and “tails”). The top shadow represents the session high, and the bottom shadow represents the session low. To continue reading more on Candlestick Signals please click here

After Monday’s Doji at the 34-EMA and near the 50-SMA yesterday the sellers felt they could push the SPY down, and they did, this morning the futures are up, and the buyers are trying to regain the 34-EMA and 50-SMA ( the battle is on) looking at the SPY between the 50-SMA, and the 200-SMA is a slugfest between traders and the buyers and sellers. A breakout in the next few days above the 50-SMA would give us a bullish “W” pattern. A close below the Dotted deuce would be a failed attempt of breaking out of the 50-SMA, and the August lows may get tested. To continue reading more on Candlestick Signals please click here

The I path Series B S&P 500 VXX Short Term Futures ETN.  Closed with a little Doji on the 34-EMA and what seems to be a little support. A close over $27.00 would spice up a VXX trade and cause the market to give way to a few sellers. Continued weakness on the VXX would suggest the Buyers are getting ready to challenge the 50-SMA.

SPY Found Resistance With A Doji

FOCUS: Stocks/Options Monday 8/20/19; Although we've discussed Dragonfly and Gravestone doji in the past, we never got around to explaining the simplest of all candlestick patterns: the basic doji, sometimes referred to as a "Doji Star." Resembling a plus sign or a cross, the doji candlestick pattern is formed of just one candlestick, and it is incredibly common. Although there are several different types of doji (such as the Gravestone, the Dragonfly, and the Long-Legged), which we will describe briefly, today we're focusing on the classic, original doji. To learn how to identify this informative candlestick pattern and interpret its presence, to read more on the Doji Click Here

The SPY gapped yesterday found resistance at the 34-EMA and just under then 50-SMA closing with a Doji very near the bearish downtrend line. A bullish breakout in the next few days would give us a bullish “W” pattern. A close below the Dotted deuce would be a failed attempt of breaking out of the 50-SMA, and the August lows may get tested. We saw a ton of profits pulled out yesterday from the members of Hit and Run Candlesticks, WTG!!!!.

The I path Series B S&P 500 VXX Short Term Futures ETN  saw weakness yesterday closing on the 34-EMA and near the 5-SMA. Pre-market the VXX is up, a run and a close above $26.35 would be trouble for the market, and a race to the $27.45 area would put a great deal of pressure on the market.

Friday's Morning Star

FOCUS: Stocks/Options Monday 8/16/19,19; If you've ever wished upon a star, I hope that that star was a Morning Star candlestick pattern. Unlike the Evening Star, an omen that hints at bad things to come (i.e., low stock prices), the Morning Star is a sign of good fortune. If you spot this bullish reversal signal, which is composed of three candles, you can expect stock prices to increase. Although the bears have been in control, the bulls are ready and able to take over. To learn how to spot the Morning Star signal, how to decipher its characteristics, and how to interpret its meaning, Click to read more

The SPY, DIA, IWM are all set to open higher, follow-through is required for a successful bullish close. Friday’s Bullish morning Star is seeing follow-through at the open this morning also after Thursdays double bottom. The bulls need to challenge and win ($294.10), Above ($294.10) would set up a bullish “W” pattern and likely start a challenge of the August highs. A close below ($282.40) would probably see a June low test.

The VIX-X CBOE Market Volatility Index needs to be below ($21.25) for the SPY or market to rally. Yesterday's long wick Shooting Star type candle might get us to ($20.00). Overall the VIX charts are bullish, maintain a cautious stance on the market.

Doji Close Yesterday

FOCUS: Stocks/Options Friday 8/16/2019; tar light, star bright, first star I see tonight . . . . Unfortunately, this hopeful nursery rhyme doesn't apply in the world of swing trading, where an Evening Star candlestick pattern indicates that nasty things are on the horizon.

Yesterday the SPY closed with a Doji, double bottom and on the Dotted Deuce, remember sustained follow-through is vital for a bullish move to be meaningful. A decisive close over yesterdays Doji ($285.65) could set the stage for a possible Morning Star type reversal. Over ($288.20) could be a set up to challenge the 50-SMA. A positive move today could also be a pure relief rally setting up another big short. Watch for clues and lack of follow-through; we sure will be.

The VIX-X CBOE Market Volatility Index needs to be below ($21.25) for the SPY or market to rally. Yesterday's long wick Shooting Star type candle might get us to ($20.00). Overall the VIX charts are bullish, maintain a cautious stance on the market.

The VIX-X CBOE Market Volatility Index seems to be a bit nuts, up-down. Follow-through above $22.40 the VIX-X will want to challenge $23.65, below $21.25 a test of $20.00 is likely

😊 Have a great trading day - Rick
