SPY Flashing Caution

The SPY is flashing caution yet eeked out another positive day yesterday as price tiptoes to the $280.00ish resistance line. On the weekly chart, the past 7 bars have closed over the T-Line with one PBO back to the T-Line and one Doji Continuation pattern that has pushed the price into the resistance area. The battle between the Bulls and the Bears is interesting at the $280.00ish level because the Bears have a possible Head and Shoulders on their side and the Bulls have the Inverted Head and Shoulders they have been working with and the recent Bullish run. Problem: As the battle begins to heat up we have found the weaker traders tend to be the biggest losers. Solution: Sit on the sidelines for a few days or have fewer positions and less invested in those positions. And be tougher with stops.

2/20/2019 Cautiously Bullish

The SPY closed slightly off its highs yesterday and so far has dipped lower premarket today (2/20/2019). While the bulls have made a fantastic 8 ½ week run the toughest challenge may lie around the $280.00 area. The T-line and the Red/Green line continued to support the candlestick price action and the price action yesterday and this past week still suggests the bulls have the upper hand. On the flip side the $280.00 resistance, price action being overbought, TC2000 T2122 (4wk New High/Low Ratio) once again pegged to the ceiling and being up 8 ½ weeks without a meaningful bullish pull back and test. We remain bullish but back to CAUTIOUSLY bullish. Selling into strength and base hits is a key factor in our success.

The SPY Remains Bullish

The SPY remains bullish with trade negotiations progressing, as you know the market does not like uncertainty. Resolving the trade war would put the market at ease when it comes to the trade war. The SPY has now broken out of the 200-SMA with the following trend. If you follow our Red/Green Trendicator, we have had 36 green dots and ZERO Red dots. Trading price action in a trend is so cool and profitable. If you are a T-Line follower price action has closed above the T-Line the last 30-days in a row. We will remain bullish as long as price action leads the T-Line and the Red/Green Line. If you would like to learn more about price action, the T-Line and the Red/Green Line check us out for a month and get a 30% discount. ✅

Bulls Are Doing Their Job

The SPY closed above the February high yesterday giving the bull another shot of Adrenalin to climb the wall if worry. The continuation pattern coming off the Red/Green Trendicator seems in good shape. The Red/Green is trending and the T-Line is trending above, when the engine runs it runs well. The next challenge for the bulls should be around $278.15 and a close below $270.00 good give the bear a little hope. The VIX-X chart is showing no fear hiding out under the Red/Green trend. We are still on vacation in Alaska, I have lived most of my life and it still amazes me.

Here are 4 stocks I am interested in, I will be looking for bullish follow through and positive trading. SNAP, AA, STZ, JUJ

Bullish Pattern On Vacation

For the past three days the SPY has been building a Bullish Continuation pattern and with the Government shut down deal I would suspect today will be another building block to the bullish continuation pattern. The Red/Green Trendicator is rising and price action is constructing a bullish pattern. I like that the T2122 chart has headed back up, but I don't really like that it is back in the overbought area. Watch price action and always keep the trend in you favor.

FYI: I am in Alaska on vacation and yesterday I closed MDLZ for a nice 55% profit while looking at the beautiful Eagle River mountains and the sun come up. Here's a nice way to start the day looking over the Keni River. I love being a stock trader.

Buy Hold or Sell

So the question is, do we buy, sell or hold? Let's take a look at the chart, from the December lows the bulls have built a bullish trend, and the trend is still intact. Price action trend has been as of yesterdays close still is making new highs/higher lows. February 5, price action made a new high and is now pulling back toward the bullish trendline. The TC2000 T2122 chart was pegged and has now rolled over signaling a pullback.

Here is what we have done with this information, at the recent high we profited on a few winning long positions and have bought PUTS on the market. Yesterday we profited on a few of the PUTS, and now we are closely managing a few positions waiting for the SPY to give us a clue as it moves closer to the bullish uptrend line. We currently see this pullback as a bullish buying opportunity as long as price action stays above the trend. The key now is to identify the right price action buy/sell signal.

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.
