No TIME for PUTs

Lots of content in the video where I make the case not to panic here. 

THe oscillators are oversold along w/ the % avg 20ema  also reaching for oversold territory. Getting short here means you think Covid variant is going to go wild w/ more hospitalizations and deaths. 

Getting short here into the hole is  a great way to get your face ripped off. Dont fight NYMO.  We may go lower but the benefit to being short is quickly diminishing. 

What we need to do here is to watch for a fib rally that fails into resistance. That would likely relax the oscillators and give us a better entry point to potentially open longer term short positions.

Percent of Stocks above the 20ema

In each of these market segments, you’ll see that the percentage is quickly nose diving to oversold or close to it.  Much closer to a spot looking for a long entry than for wanting to load shorts.

Oscillators plunge toward Oversold

The oscillators for both the NYSE and NDX have both plunged to neg 60 or lower. THe % of stocks over their 50sma have also taken a nose dive toward oversold.  Can we go lower from here?  Sure they can, but as you can see on both NYMO and NAMO that once these hit minus 60 or lower, the down draft is on borrowed time.  To buy PUTs now ( in the hole ) is to be betting on a Covid rug pull follow-up . a recipe to get your face ripped off
