General Market Observation:  Will the Post-Election historical weakness show up this week?  Since the election, the 3 Tracking Indexes has followed along historical norms and if this continues a healthy pullback should begin soon.  This doesn’t mean the market is going to crash because at this point the catalyst for a major failure are not totally in place.  However, a pullback lasting through the end of March would tell us that Indexes are following the historical price action and provide healthy long opportunities about 6-8 weeks from now.  We shall see.

Today’s action was mixed with only the NDX showing positive price action for the Tracking Indexes.  The SPX and RUT were down for the day but showed no signs of a major drop.  The SPX continues to work within a trading ranged bracketed between support ant 2260 and resistance at 2300.  The Island Top formation is still valid marking the top level of resistance.  Because we know the historical price action for a post-election market tends to sell off in February, if price gets near resistance opening a partial bearish position would be reasonable.  To maintain a simple approach, I would look to open this position in the Russell inverse leveraged ETF, TZA.  If one choose to trade either SPY puts or SPXU that would also allow downside exposure.

NDX continues to be the strongest of the Tracking Indexes has not pushed to any new highs for over a week.  The daily Hanging Man reversal candle from 1/27 is still valid and shows resistance at the 5172 level.  Daily and Weekly TSI and Momentum indicators are out of sync.  These clues provide no current trade setups so waiting for pullbacks is currently appropriate.

The Russell sold off to the 8/20 moving average combo as price action continues in a price range that is drifting lower.  Price action on the RUT may lead the way down if the indexes begin to weaken more.

SPX:   Downside Market Short the SPY, SPY Puts or SPXU.
Preferred Long ETF’s:  SPY, UPRO and SPXL

NDX:   Downside Market Short the QQQ, QQQ Puts or SQQQ.
Preferred Long ETF’s: QQQ and TQQQ

RUT:   Downside Market Short the IWM, IWM Puts or TZA.
Preferred Long ETF’s:  IWM and TNA

Updated first full week of each month.  The next update after first week in February.


Outs & Ins:   CAVM, MTCH, QRVO and ULTA made their debut on this weekend’s IBD 50 list.  This is QRVO’s first visit to the list.  Each of the inductees are extended at a level of resistance like many of the other stocks on the list.

This week’s sort for the fundamentally strongest stocks resulted in the following list.  IDCC, NVDA, UBNT, ESNT and THO.  THO is closest to an entry but is not launching off the moving averages.  NVDA, UBNT have earnings on the 9th and ESNT following on the 10th.  None of these are at a buy point.  Watch IDCC for any bounce off the 8/20 moving average combo.  IDCC has earnings scheduled 2/23 BMO.
