Shorted SPX 2627. Stop 2631 for now. Will move down the stop if i don't see a swift selloff. 

 

This is only a daytrade. There's is no setup for any swing trade yet. I am trying this short based on the massacre going on in Nasdaq. One them is a fake. We will find out soon.

Alex,

 

I see not a single top post today - short term, intermediate or long term. I see no bears shorting today. And there's a massacre going on in Nasdaq.

 

Well, it could be just rotation from tech to banks. But it's weird to see the perma bears on this board having become so quiet. I am not used to it laugh.png

 

I already have a short term sell on Nasdaq. But nothing yet on S&P. It's just a speculative day trade on my part, betting that S&P will catch up with the Nasdaq.

Saw it in 2000.   Small biotechs and internets in 2000.  B2B and genomics were the big hype stocks.  Stocks up 10-fold in one month and disappearing within a year.

 

internets lose most of their market cap in 2000

 

There were a bunch of 10 percent corrections in the last six month leading up the April crash.  Greenspan was buying and selling securities around Y2K.  ECB just bought 60 billion euros in the last three weeks.  Top of current channel has been reached.

Well, if you wish, I can call the top. Lol.

In fact NDX proves what I replied in other thread - there is no liquidity out there. They tried to sell FANG, and? None to buy.
We will see.

It's a ending diagonal break on QQQ. It will retrace the wedge completely. Should be back to 151.8 very soon.

Sudden Weakness in Tech MNCs and Continuing several week weakness in Physical Metals, Metal Stocks, Chemicals and Energy Stocks is the SYMPTOM.  Massive economic distress in China is the CAUSE.

 

I'd be watching CQQQ and KWEB closely.

 

On the flip side, US economy is doing very well.  At least for now.
