The Bear Is Getting Hangry

The bear is getting hangry; the bears are getting a little hangry since they only snacked six/seven days ago are have not had a big meal for about a month. The narrowing chart pattern is a clue that the current trend is getting tired and needs a rest. A few other clues are price action is pressed up against the 200-SMA, the T2122 4wk New High/Low Ratio is way overextended, and the FNUG daily chart closed with a Dark Cloud Cover yesterday. It looks like we are going to have an Evening Star open on the SPY and depending on the following price action/candle action the bulls might find support around $269.00, if not the $266.70 and $264.50 areas are open. Right now we will look at this bull back and bullish opportunity providing the bulls step in above $266.70. Cautiously bullish with a few short trades for balance.

Yesterday the Hit and Run Candlesticks “Road To Wealth” Account grabbed another ✅$300.00 profit on the X trade.

Twenty-Two Days In A Row

Twenty-two days in a row, that’s how many days price action has closed over the T-Line, price action has cut through every obstacle the bears have had. Now price is faced with the 200-SMA hurdle with right price action anything is possible. At the close yesterday, the SPY chart closed with a gap in the morning followed by a fairly tight trading day closing with Doji pinned just under the 200-SMA. The VIX pricked up a few buyers, not enough to panic but we should keep an eye on the price action. IYT and SMA have been in a solid T-Line run, and both are pinned just under the 200-SMA. We remain cautiously bullish above $269.19 on the SPY chart.

Yesterday the Hit and Run Candlesticks “Road To Wealth” Account grabbed another ✅$500.00 or 19% with the SQ trade. ✅The LTA Scanner gave a great alert on X; we are currently up 19%.

Trending PBO’s

I love following a chart like the SPY that is trending and when price action gives us PBO’s (Pull Back Opportunities) followed by profitable swings. January 24th through January 30th was a perfect PBO opportunity with a swing to the Dotted Deuce and now possibly the 200-SMA on the SPY chart. When looking at the SPY, it is clear to see that the bulls have been in control climbing the wall of worry fending off the very obvious resistance starting on the January 15th candle. Unfourtiountly the bullishness can end in a split second, above $269.15 and up to $281.20 we feel will be like sailing through rough waters. Our navigation will be crucial getting past the rocks, sharks and pirates.

✅Live Trading Alerts – 100 plus alerts/scans to choose from

Yesterday the “Live Trading Alerts Scanner” alerted us on a few great setups; I was able to capture terrific entries on X and GS. Now we will manage them based our proven trading rules. Three of my favorite scans are the Pop Out of The Box, The RBB, and the 3×6 Trap. Yesterday we took profits on V, and WDC both alerted by the Live Trading Alerts Scanner. 👉😎Todays trade-ideas came from Live Trading Alerts at the closing bell yesterday: NBR, X, LMT, URI, BBBY, HOME, IBM. Not all charts are a buy today, knowing trade ideas still require trading education and savvy. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

SPY Bullish or Bearish

The battle between Bullish and Bearish is up front and center lately. On Friday the SPY daily chart closed with a Doji in the thick of resistance, the trend remains bullish with price leading the T-Line and the T-Line leading the 34-EMA. The 20-SMA and 34-EMA have risen above the 50-SMA. Friday’s price action felt the pressure of the bearish downtrend line and the 200-SMA is trying to intimidate price. The area surrounding the 200-SMA ($270.30 and $277.65) will likely be a challenge for price action. Price is currently at our Dotted Duece line, success over the Dotted Duece should result in a challenge of the 200-SMA. Both areas will take the full power of the Bull, keep a watchful eye out for that sneaky little Bear. We are concerned about the T2122 levels in TC2000 pegged above 80 for so long. These high levels are concerning and a warning clue. BUT price and trend is king, and as long as price action remains bullish over the RED/GREEN Trendicator, we will remain cautiously bullish. The CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) The CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) price action is showing no signs of fear with price below the T-Line and the T-Line below the Re/Green line.

From out trade-idea list: NBR, KKR, WDC, MU, NTAP, NYL, LVS, HAL will be talked about in our pre-market workshop. Past performance does  not guarantee future results.

SPY AND Dotted Deuce Line

What fantastic day yesterday, heck what a fantastic month January has been, check the Thursday, January 31, end of day blog post. You can see what a few our members did. If your We are kicking February off with a 30% discount on our membership. I will also be offering 1-hour free coaching for the first ten that takes advantage of the 30% discount!

The SPY closed higher yesterday at $269.93 on the HRC Dotted Deuce Line. The follow-through yesterday extended the bullish J-Hook continuation as well. As of yesterdays close the bulls have ignored and resistance the bears have tried to put up. In our recent blogs and the trading room, I have stated we are cautiously bullish. Yesterday we practiced Base Hits and closed all the good profitable positions and now getting more interested in adding a PUT or two. The TC2000 T2122 chart is pegged at 98.56, I for one have never seen the T2122 this high for this long. On the Bull side, price continues to ride the T-Line, and the T-Line is riding the Red/Green Trendicator Line. For the Bears, the resistance is in please, now it’s up to the bulls to what they are going to do with that information.

The CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX)
Closed at another low yesterday on the 200-SMA. It seems there is no fear in this market, at least for now.

Continuation Pattern Held

The continuation pattern held together in the SPY with the help of a few good earnings and Mr. Powell (Fed Report). The TC200O Red/Green Trendicator has done a great job keeping us on the bullish side of the SPY. The SPY has been trending up, and on January 22, price pulled back, for the following six days price walked along the Green Dot trendline forming a continuation pattern. Yesterday the buyers/bulls broke out and closed above the recent highs. The next big warning area will be the start of $271.00. Above $271.00 also gets price action into the HRC Dotted Duece line and the 200-SMA moving averages. I am starting to see a few signs that the market is a bit stretched, moving higher into resistant levels and the T2122 chart in TC2000 flashing warning. As long as price action remains bullish, we will remain cautiously bullish. The chart below illustrates the Yellow downtrend line the bulls have beat, the yellow horizontal line pointing out more resistance and the Red/Green Trendicator bull trend. The short magenta line is pointing out the continuation pattern breakout. The most important information the next day or 2 is whether or not we get bullish follow through. Another piece of useful information to help navigate the market is that the DJ-30 is testing the $25,000 area and the 200-SMA, watch price action for clues to direction.

The CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) closed back below the T-Line yesterday, below the Red/Green Trendicator showing lack of fear. Note price is testing the 200-SMA area which can always spark buying.

The Big Apple Reported

The big Apple (APPL) has reported, not as bad as thought; pre-market is up. Now we take a seat and patiently wait for the 2:00 pm bus. The FOMC decision Hawk or Dove will be out at 2:00 pm today, rate hikes, up or up more and when. Knowing this information could help the market get off its fanny and make a move one way or the other. Yesterday the SPY closed with another indecision Doji, the 5hth one in the past five days. “Think the market is waiting for something”? The chart patterns and price action remains bullish as price holds over the 50-SMA and slides sideways. The price action is trapped between a bearish downtrend line and the 200-SMA and a bullish uptrend line and the 50-SMA. Unfortunately, neither the buyers or sellers have had enough juice to move price up or down. So we patiently wait sitting along side the road for the bull or bear bus to show up. The CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) closed above the T-Line yesterday, but the Red/Green Trendicator is still red on the daily chart. The VIX- would have to break out over the Trendicator to consider fear. There is plenty of reasons to remain concerned or even be sitting out of this market right now. I do remain cautiously bullish.

FOMC-Earnings Week Yikes

FOMC today and tomorrow, big earnings this week YIKES! I you ever heard me say “I don’t like earnings?” Well, I don’t. I have seen earnings kill trading accounts and set traders back months on their profit progress. And then on top of it all, we have the FOMC rate decision this week as well.
As you can see from the SPY chart below, price action is walking right into the right corner of the up and down trend lines. The bigger direction decision will likely show itself once the buyers or sellers push the price above the downtrend line or below the uptrend line. The last six candles have simply been consolidation above support and below resistance. For the bulls, the price has been trending above our Red/Green trend line, and the past seven candles have held above the $260.60 support line while at the same time the bears have held price in a tight range below the downtrend line. I suspect a big decision is coming soon. The CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) closed once again below the T-Line and the Red/Green trend line. However, with a double bottom and a possible breakout of $21.95 would create a bullish chart pattern. There is plenty of reason to be concerned or even be sitting out of this market right now. I do remain cautiously bullish.
