My Swing Trading Approach

I have one long position coming into today. I covered my short position yesterday on SPY for a 3.1% profit. Looking to add additional long positions, as the market allows for, today. 


  • VIX – Just a -1% move yesterday.  A lot of chop in this indicator. At this point, no clear direction. 
  • T2108 (% of stocks trading below their 40-day moving average): Potential here to see a new higher-low established and push back over the 55% mark. 
  • Moving averages (SPX): Held the 200-day moving average but nothing else. Look for a test of the 20-day today, and 5-day moving average as well.

Industries to Watch Today

Energy led the way today, but they have a lot of earnings coming out, which could shake up the industry. Technology poised for a big bounce following Facebook (FB) earnings.

My Market Sentiment

The 200-day moving average held, which was a big deal for the market yesterday. Now, the issue becomes, can it follow through today, and early indications suggest it wants to.
