The bears haven't seen day-light in a long time, and I doubt it is going to change for them this week as Thanksgiving is upon us and the volume will only get more light and the interest by the big money be less interested in what this market has to offer us. 

While, I have put together a bearish list of short setups, I don't think that any of them are worth jumping into just yet while this market continues to soar higher and stay above the 5-day moving average everyday since October 16th. So until something changes, why get short? Wait for the market to begin to pullback or breakdown, but to try and front run a move that might not be for days, weeks or months away, does not make any sense. 

Continue to maintain your own list of bearish setups that you can take once the market does decide to give back and use the list that I've provided below as a primer. 

Here's the bearish list of trade setups:

Traditionally this is a bullish week for stocks. 

But this is also one of the slowest weeks in terms of volume for stocks as most of Wall Street get in their fancy cars and head off to the Hamptons for the week. 

Very rarely do you see volatility enter this market though I have seen it happen once in recent years. However, unless there is an unexpected news event that breaks, I expect very little from this market with a slight upward bias. 

Here's this week's bullish watch-list:

Read more...

Pre-market update:

  • Asian markets traded 0.8% higher.
  • European markets are trading 2.1% higher.
  • US futures are trading 0.5% higher ahead of the market open. 


Economic reports due out (all times are eastern): 
Chicago Fed National Activity (8:30), PMI Services Flash (9:45), Dallas Fed Manufacturing Survey (10:30)

Technical Outlook (SPX):

  • Expect a slow market this week where volume will become increasingly lighter than the day prior as we get close to Thanksgiving day. 
  • Stock market is closed on Thursday, and open until 1pm eastern on Friday. 
  • On Friday, SPX broke out of the 3-day consolidation period and closed at new all-time highs. 
  • What concerns me most about Friday's market action is how it gave up much of the day's gains and finished below the day's opening price. 
  • VIX finished 5% lower at 13.03. 
  • Volume was strong on Friday but primarily due to options expiration day. 
  • Thanksgiving week tends to be bullish and expect this week to be the same. However, I do not expect any major price movements out of the indices - but that doesn't mean that there won't be significant moves made on individual stocks. 
  • The % of stocks trading above the 40-day moving average continues to increase which means there isn't any deterioration occurring underneath the surface with stocks. 
  • As a result remaining long on this market is the only logical play at this time. Shorting stocks would undoubtedly be a foolish gesture. 
  • SPX 30-minute chart continues to exhibit higher-highs and higher-lows. No concerns with the price action there. 
  • If SPX breaks 2030 it would represent a break of key support and likely more weakness would follow. 
  • 5-day and 10-day moving average are converging which makes a break of both in one day much more possible and more significant too. 
  • Historically trend-lines that are steeper/greater than 45 degrees are nearly impossible to maintain over an extended period of time. 
  • The market doesn't care about the economy nor earnings. That is not what is driving it. The market only cares about what the Fed is doing to keep equities propped up.

Closed out yet another profitable week in the Splash Zone

Check out the results that one member of the Splash Zone mailed me this morning - it is quite impressive to say the least:

This is a trader that never has to even trade for himself. He simply auto-trades my trade alerts through Ditto Trade and relies on the Splash Zone trade alerts to do the rest and this is what his brokerage account looked like today based of the Splash Zone trades. 

And it is shaping up to be another solid month in the Splash Zone and once again outpacing the S&P 500 as has been the case all year long. 

Here's November's results:

Pre-market update:

  • Asian markets traded 0.3% higher.
  • European markets are trading 2.1% higher.
  • US futures are trading 0.8% higher ahead of the market open. 


Economic reports due out (all times are eastern): 
Kansas City Fed Manufacturing Index (11)

Technical Outlook (SPX):

  • Heavy gap up today after China issued a surprise rate cut. 
  • Don't add any new long positions until it becomes obvious that the bulls can hold on to the strength and not allow a gap fill to ensue. 
  • 10-day moving average continues to bring in the dip buyers. The last four times we have tested the 10-day, has led to heavy buying thereafter. 
  • Volume still remains below average. 
  • SPX 30-minute chart shows price moving out of recent consolidation. 
  • VIX dropped 2.7% to 13.58. Watch how weak the VIX is this morning for a gauge on how reliable this market rally should be today. 
  • If SPX breaks 2030 it would represent a break of key support and likely more weakness would follow. 
  • 5-day and 10-day moving average are converging which makes a break of both in one day much more possible and more significant too.

SharePlanner Reversal Indicator is hitting high levels of altitude lately. 

In times past, a bearish reversal would have usually led to respectable pullback in the broader market, but since the Fed took a heavy hand in the market since 2008, the bearish reversal signals can mean one of two things: Either a sell-off is coming or price action is simply going to consolidate. 

Due to the strength in the market over the past five years, I have come to expect that a bearish reversal should have the default setting of signaling a period of consolidation unless proven otherwise. 

Here is what we are seeing on the Daily SPRI:
