Just Another FOMC Day

A typical FOMC day is usually dreary until the Fed decisions come out in the early afternoon. Before the FED decision, everyone scramble for a position and changes their mind 2-3 times while sitting on the edge of their seat. Stay calm and have a slice of pie is what I plan to do. It really is pretty simple, if the Fed news is to risky think about cash or nearly cash. If you are comfortable with your positions and they have proper stops sit back and enjoy the pie. And never forget you don’t have to trade every day and never trade out of desperation. THE SPY CHART had a hard morning yesterday thanks to GOOG, but by the end of the day the SPY came back above our T-Line making it 23 days that price has closed above the T-Line, (what a nice run). The bears are always sitting on the edge waiting for a sign to pounce on the bull in a bullish trend, and we will also be alerted with price action and candlesticks formations. Good trading traders!

✅ The following are eleven trade ideas I am adding to my watch-list for consideration over the next few days. CMRE, PG, JNJ, ADSK, ACN, ORCL, UNP, CSX, ECL, BMO, CCK

Bullish T-Line Run

GOOG was spanked last night at the earnings party, and the FNGU has dropped $2.00 in the aftermarket. I suspect today will a nail-biting day for some and others dance in the street. The difference is how the trade plans, quality of charts and allotment size that makes the difference. Either way, the SPY closed good, now 22 days in a Bullish T-Line Run. Yesterday’s close was in the form of a small-bodied candle and a small wick/shadow on top so we could see a little profit taking in the market today. Above $291.35 I will view a bullish and below not so much. Above $291.35 keep price above the 4/17 bearish engulf candle that the 4/23 candle broke out of. We close out our BAC trade for a cool 30%; we entered the trade because we liked the chart after the LTA Scann alerted us a 3×8 Trap Scan and it was a T-Band Breakout.

Crazy Wall of Worry

The Wall of Worry can make for crazy trading days and days of boredom as we have seen in the past few weeks. Friday was the 21st day the SPY has closed over the T-Line which suggest the market is happy with last weeks round of earnings. Today is the start of another full week of earnings and the sane can be applied. Each day we will have earnings and each day we will monitor price action and where it is in relationship to the T-Line. If the price closes below the T-Line but closes in the band, consolidation, and opportunity maybe around the corner. Closing below the bands altogether puts the sellers in the driver seat, and we may have to alter our direction. Let’s keep watch on the VIX- chart; price is curtly flirting with the 200-SMA on the 15-min chart, And the 200-SMA is tilted upwards because of the big move the VIX- did a few bars back.

Buckle Up It’s Friday

The SPY closed with a Doji yesterday above the T-Line and the T-Line Bands in a bullish trend. Yesterday produced a pretty good battler between the buyers and sellers. The DIA’s made it down to the lower band support line and close up near the mid support band line. The VIX-X chart also played in yesterdays fun popping up to $13.29 before closing at $13.25. The VIX-X closed over the T-Bands with higher lows and a little bottom construction. I doubt the VIX-X is finished with it’s fun in the playground. There is a bit of fear starting to brew, and the VIX-X chart is a great place to watch it unfold. Note that if the Fear rises the SPY may fall below the T-Line and test the lower T-Band. Buckle up; it’s Friday.

MMM Earnings Spanking DIA’s

Pre-market earnings on MMM giving the market a little spanking. It Looks like the DIA’s will be testing around the T-Line today after closing bullishly above the T-Line for the past 8-days. VXXB closed yesterday with a Bullish Morning Star pattern suggesting the nervous traders are getting a bit more nervous, and the FANG ETF chart is whipping around this morning. The SPY seems to be holding up in the Pre-market, but it’s early as I write this blog. It’s looking like today will test the confidence of many traders, having a solid risk plan on each position held will help to keep calm and focused. The close yesterday suggested the market was in for a little profit taking today, even with minor (emphasis on minor) profit taking the SPY and the overall market is still trending. The Live Trading Alerts Scanner will be very helpful today with charts alerting Bullish or Bearish Action.

Strong Earnings Strong Day

Another strong day in the market due to strong earnings. Yesterday marked the 16th day the SPY has closed over the T-Line (8 Expediential moving average). Yesterday’s candlestick closed at $292.88, well over the concerning bearish engulf a few days ago. Price action dipped into the T-Line Bands for a couple of days finding new money before launching an attack on the breakout and new highs. Our outlook remains bullish as long as price action continues to build new highs and higher lows above our lower (RED) T-Band. We will continue to monitor the Live Alert Scanner for buy alerts and setups like the T-Band Moving Up, The RBB Alert, The PBO  Alert, and The 3 X 8 Trap Alert. Did you know there are over 140 pre-built scans/alerts?

Buyers and Sellers Battle

The price action battle is on between the buyers and sellers. Last week the sellers printed a Bearish Engulf on Thursday and follow-through on Friday. Yesterday (Monday) the Buyers printed a Bullish Engulf that covered Friday’s Doji follow-through. The buyers still control the trend, hands down! Using the recent Doji low $288.66 as the pivot low the buys have a chance to use yesterday’s Engulf as a key candle to help with there challenge of higher highs. “Of course the question is will they” As boring as this market has been it’s nice to see the profits/losses and the net gain posted in the trading room. “Thanks, Traders!” The VIX continues to show no fear, which points to a bullish market.

Friday Follow-Through?

Thursday last week the SPY printed a Bearish Engulf and Friday we did see minor follow-through with Friday’s close below the halfway point of the Bearish engulf and a lower low. Price has closed below our blue tightening wedge lines both Thursday and Friday. On the bright side, the SPY chart trend still has a bullish attitude with price closing Friday above the T-Line Bands. If the sellers can print a lowe close today below the green T-Band $286-285, could see a test. A bullish close over $290.35 would suggest the bulls are not finished with there challenge of the $293.95 high. This is a pretty heavy week of earnings, chose wisely when taking on a position or holding a position. With price action still in the bullish side of the T-Bands, we will remain cautiously bullish and continue to trade with clarity and rules.
