I wonder if it will fill the gap at 21.83 in the UUP chart. Tall order for today, but maybe later in the week.

However, as a longer swings player, I stay hedged and wait for a conversion of this signal into a “steady UP” - above 118.


Thanks for the chart. So if you were long you would hold into the close regardless of the movement on the close?


It depends on what they will do on close…Usually, there are ways to tell at the beginning of the last hour of trade. But if the atmosphere stays “uneventful”, then YES…I would keep it and maybe I would reduce the risk with a small hedge…

It appears now that, today,the line in the sand is indeed SPY = 118

May be a little shy @118 before the target 118.5

still a good chance we get to 118.10-118.25 area....looks my cover was a good decision. :mrgreen:

overall mkt sentiment is measuring good with europe closing positive. i will short another day and may go long a little.


i'm raising my target to 118.50-60 area for tops today. too bad my bid for some spy calls didn't get filled...looks like machines are running the game today and are taking it slow mo...

volume surge plus overshot, another pullback is possible here, then we'll see, key time as it's the revisit of the previous high.

Bears couldn’t follow thru yest after the big rout on Friday. Small ramp up at close yest was ALL short covering. If it was real bulls buying, we would have seen evidence somewhere, like a spike in TBT/drop in TLT. We didn’t see that. Real bull buying shows when the bulls sell bonds (TBT spikes) to buy stock. They didn’t. Or they sell gold/silver to buy stocks. They didn’t.

(Money doesn’t move in a vacuum, it has to move from HERE to THERE.)

When too many shorts run for cover it can provide monster rallies, monster. Then a giant drop the minute a bad news report comes out, EU sneezes, etc., and the short covering stops, and the market is left to the bulls to hold it up… but no bulls yet … we’ll see it in the numbers.

Until VIX (fear index) calms down to below 30, and some of that excess short interest gets reduced by covering rallies, we could be in for some violent moves, BOTH WAYS. We can't be "a bear" or "a bull" in this market, just flexible, and flip from red to green when the numbers demand, and honor our stops, and follow The Cobra.

(Little spike TBT already on open today, let’s watch for follow through. But VERY slow opening).

... still on the downtrend, maybe the bond traders know more than the equity types...

but in the end, who knows... what they are up to

Stale news link because short interest only reports monthly. New report should be out on the 15th. Someone please chirp when they see the new one.

Hi there

now at least in the 4hr chart there seems some selling going on in the 10yrs

http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/2792/capturexp.png

so maybe this is the start for the test of 1185+

who knows :)

Why do I get the sick feeling the whoever did the mass buying at 2:30pm yesterday will show up today at 2:30pm and start some serious mass selling now that we're up at these elevated prices?

Talk about taking people's money away! Let's see if that happens. If it does, it's a sign that the sharks are growing more and more brazen and approaching shallower waters! Watch out!

Yes, I did ... and posted the question the question on the Weekend board. Didn't get a response. The tail did NOT shows up on any candlestick until after the market closed. However, the summation did show that this was the high. For example, if you look at Cobra's 5 min print screen at 3:40 on Friday, you will see that the summation noted a high of this 119.x high, but none of the 5-min candlesticks registered the fact. Very, very strange and shows how manipulated the market is.

May be it needs some kind of breath/consolidation @117.5 before the race for the target 118.5

EDZ ! Boy you have big bolls

High octane don't you think?


Okay mister big pants.
KRE is popping up on my pretty-small watch list. That is VERY unusual. xlf(fas) is all the banks, kre is exclusively all the little regionals which can confirm/non-confirm a decent bank move and they usually like to non-confirm. But I’ll be darned the kre is confirming banking move. European banks are set to default any minute now and our banks are up????? Can’t fight with it, just gotta go with it till it breaks down, oops now breaking down.
Comments?


yes, just look at HBAN, the regionals dont seem to suffer from the Euro malaise...

this looks to me like a "small butterfly" in the making

Interesting "stockcycle"! This is, however, a minor move... No"race into it" - IMHO...But how did you come up with it? Can you show a chart?
