Shark-Infested Waters


The SPY is back to an area where, in a normal market, we would expect overhead supply (price resistance of former trapped buyers at the highs) to kick in.

However, we know the current market is an outlier, with the S&P 500 Index not correcting 10%, nor testing its 200-day simple moving average since 2012. Since then, time and time again overhead supply has been ignored in favor of a V-shaped rally to fresh highs.

Thus, the question is whether the trap will persist, or instead we will have a trap within a trap and this time overhead supply will matter.

I have no clue as to whether this is it. But I do know that the below chart can help me define risk for any trade I take, long or short.

I am still inclined to think, however, that the many broad market divergences will pressure bulls into next week.

    If the top is in we need to see this rally fail soon. By the 19th or 20th. I may dip toe in on shorts soon. I have a probe out on LVS right now.

    I tend to agree with you guys but I’d ideally like us to get to that big gap fill area……1970 spx/16900 on the Dow.

      I agree with that projection. 16900 is 1.2% higher. if that happens between now and early next week I think you take a shot there.
