Market update and an invitation

Dear Trader,

Sorry I haven’t written much in recent months. Totally focused on trading. This up and down volatility creates challenges and also great opportunities for a nimble and alert trader.

I continue to post for traders in several times a week, and today would like to share with you a piece from my Sunday post:

As I had mentioned many times, both here and in Password classes, my favorite pattern is a false bullish or bearish breakout with a divergence. I think it is highly likely that the S&P will break below its October low, marked on the chart. Now I watch MACD-Histogram. Bottom A marks the latest maximum power of bears. Top B – breaking the back of the bear. MACD-H is now pushing into a potential bottom C.

If MACD-H ticks up from a more shallow level than A, a bullish divergence will be in place. Then, after the S&P rises above the indicated low, the downside breakout will be marked \ false, and the pattern will be complete, suggesting a long trade.

Two caveats: 1) if trading an individual stock, look for a similar pattern for that stock, not only for the S&P. 2) this pattern is developing on the daily chart, but not on the weekly. It suggests a bounce but says nothing about a long-term bull or a bear market.

Let me also repeat two friendly warnings: 1) these aren’t normal times, consider trading a smaller size than usual; 2) we’re now in the midst of the earnings season, be sure to check the earnings date for every trade and skip it if earnings are just a few days away.
