when da_chief and fib_1618 are inflationating the board, you are sure that a IT top is in or almost in

 

I used them to short the market in almost 12 years

 

Stay tuned

Well, that is certainly a hair-raising way to trade.

So I posted a chart to emphasize/compliment your comment, and I haven't made a post on here in over a week, and I'M a proxy for when we see market tops?

 

JCA!

Folks, need I remind you that we don't insult each other nor call each other "fades" nor beat up on each other when we're wrong.

 

That is a violation of the TOS.

BTW, we made a little money on our shorts but they really didn't offer us much.

 

I am fearing that we're going to dicky-dacky around with a glacial decline that doesn't go far, but takes the oscillators back to oversold.

I'm slightly short on an intermediate-term basis.  Long SPX 2375 Nov. puts and the SPY 250.00 Oct puts.  I have time on my side and will give this plenty of time to play out.  Cyclewise we are in the precise time-frame for a turn, and I don't believe it leads to a rally.  More along the lines of a 8-10% drop over as little as 3-4 day period.

you have a lot of company..,,,,good luck   ...,im staying long

 

I'm long also Chief.  These puts are my hedge.  I'm not trying to make a killing.  I'd prefer my Longs remain string and my puts expire worthless....BUT, I'm worried and that forces me to hedge.  You get it.

Better be careful shorting even though lots of measures of internals are fairly weak.smart money is on strong buy 2 days in a row (Thurs and now Fri). Fri is not as emphatic without OI update on Monday midnight as multiple sources do not agree.

THe guy to ALWAYS FADE (and he's not a board member so it's okay to throw insults his way!) is Dennis Gartman!  When he's bullish I go MAX SHORT.  When's he bearish he's always late.... we are at a bottom!
