Call it what you want but several are pointing out cycle highs due today and tomorrow. I think next weel is a big sell. But in full disclosure I suck...

the third movement is based on the Fibonacci sequence as this "written-out accelerando/ritardando" uses the rhythm 1:2:3:5:8:5:3:2:1.

Investors need to try and hold for LT capital gain taxes ( 12 months or more). I will bet many rode this entire move down and some were using leverage. I know some!  They are NOT traders in my opinion.  Even trend traders sold when IWM starting moving down. They sold long before it sold off more then 25% if they were worth a [bleeeep], but should have went back long sometime ago.  They will be holding since the trend remains up, but I'm not a trend trader in a Bear Market.  I'm swing trading and VST trading.  However, trading is about Risk/Reward and staying nimble in markets like this one. I was very long weeks ago, but now keeping it much smaller....  You don't suck. Some just have better tools then yours for placing bets. LOL...  there are some that charge for their guesses and they really do suck....

 

 For now just watch the show and place a few Beer Money trades. Well, that's what I'm doing....

 

Good trading and we shall see what happens next week since the 200 dma looks to be had. This will be number four on my daily trading chart....

"Weird Wollie Wednesday", created by Don Wolanchuk, references the Wednesday prior to options expiration. The observation made by Wolanchuk stipulates that this day is made up of manipulated price action which is primarily related to the faster deterioration of options premiums during the week prior to options expiration; many traders are rebalancing and rolling their options forward. Using WWW as a guide, it is not uncommon to see strong moves down in the market place on the Wednesday prior to options expiration week.

WWW isn't the Wednesday prior to opex, it's the Wednesday in the week prior to opex, i.e., last week.

This week is normally Bullish and next week not so much. However, that does not always play out out.

Robo,

LOL....  I have plenty of losers with the tools I'm using, but they help me with the risk/reward level using odds. Sometimes it's best not to trade and wait for an extreme to trade. No Brother  - no twitter or Blog.  I use the KISS system and try and look for extremes to trade. I mainly use Sentiment Trader and Cycles for trading. The charts are for keeping track of the data only. I'm currently only trading from the short side, but waiting for the next setup to go long again. I have most of my money at Vanguard and you CAN NOT buy Bear Funds or Leveraged funds there anymore so I can't buy SDS/SSO or HDGE like I use too.

 

Below are a few of the twitter comments I follow, but my trading system is pretty simple.

This is worth reading over his older comments. I use a few of the same tools he does.....   Keep in mind I'm a trader not an investor.

I want to point out I do this full time because I'm retired. I have been trading VXF only for many years  with my retirement money. No shorting or leverage.... When there are no extremes I place smaller trades or I don't trade at all.
