SPY 5. Getting squeezed by the EMA 20, the pivot and S/R lines.

5/20, yesterday, Bloomberg: small options traders are bullish to a point that signals trouble for U.S. equities, according to Sundial Capital Research.
“Last week, the smallest of options traders, those with trades for 10 contracts or fewer at a time, opened a new record of net bullish positions,” Sundial President Jason Goepfert [of SentimenTrader] wrote in a note Tuesday. In comparison, very large traders, those with trades of 50 or more contracts at a time, haven’t been betting so much on a rally... That has widened the spread between small- and large-trader net bullish positions to a record, with the gap jumping “like it did in 2008” in the past couple of weeks … This has a strong tendency to lead to lower prices over the short to medium term”  he added.

Along the same lines;
"... what we have in the market is an unholy mess. We have bored, unseasoned, emotionally conflicted investors playing around in a murky pool where one of the most opaque sectors has the ability to make the biggest waves. It's very stupid — people are going to drown."

Not sure if the higher low therefore the pullback was over, need a strong bull bar to confirm.

SPY 5. Taking a step above the EMA 20. It could be an interesting close. Or maybe not, relatively quiet day.

Made a quick SPXU trade and staying flat for the weekend.
I want to see VIX 25-26 before I hold SPXU for swing trade.
