ISN'T SO EVERY WEEK FOR BEARS & BULLS?

Adam Mancini (@AdamMancini4) tweeted at 1:50 pm on Sat, Sep 12, 2020:
Have a great weekend! After the 1st two red weeks since March, $SPX is testing multi-month channel support and next week is make or break for bulls

My Plan: Bullish wedge in play. Bulls need to break it out at 3370 which targets 3470+. If this fails at 3285, we're off to 3230 https://t.co/iCmxSRe80H

OTH:
XTRENDS:

Markets put bottom on high volatility, high volume and fear. What you have seen during the recent 10% plunge was the exact opposite. This period closely resembles Oct-Nov 2018 in terms of those parameters.

"The VIX was down on the week.

The S&P was down almost 100 points."

HELENE:
In the last 6 weeks we've had a few pattern changes.
1) QQQs broke the channel from April.
2) Naz had its first string of 3 red days (mid Aug). Second one last week
3) SPX had consecutive red weeks for the first time since March.

two weekend hedge nq longs were quite beneficial. .. total of 360 points profit since Friday's close

Closing one +82 points

holding the next one for most of the day ... depends on market action

 

pajama traders again got the best market moves but sine 4:50am not too and, one good short trade and 2 longs.

 

will update current positions later

Late start decided to go on a road trip last minute.  Still have my long from 3310 on, did check it earlier and now with the cash open I'll put my stop at 3350!
