Since the correction from 12/3, there's not been a sell signal even on 1-min charts. It's hard to short a market that strong and make money. Saying "This is not a top" is as much a prophecy statement as "This is a top". Anything can happen in the market anytime. But as a trader the risk/reward is always in the direction of the trend in one's timeframe.
It's not complicated folks. To short we need to break at least the nearest pivot (SPX 1242) and have a retracement failure. And that requires time on the part of market and patience on the part of trader.
Until then just buy the friggin' dips.
I exited at SPX 1240 and planning to re-enter on or after the Fed day.
