Yesterday, for the first time in a long time, all 3 of the major indexes advanced together.  Too early to tell if this was a one-off anomaly  or the beginning of a next leg higher. All 3 of the indexes are near important pivots which traders can key on for todays trade. Also today i spend some extra time today on the video to offer some trading strategies as relatBoth SPY and QQQ appear to be rolling out of extended runs and are poised for more corrective activity.  I am not expecting some catastrophic melt down but simply a move lower to some well defined levels where I’d expect buyers to step in. The reflation / re-opening trade has stalled with energy, regional banks, airlines, travel and other re-opening plays pulling back. You can see the underperformance in IWM compared to both SPY and QQQ.


Given yesterday’s sell off, the stock is primed for a bracket trade with a $35 open gap to fill.


Time to look at commodities if you have not done so. Certain commodities have put in important bases while others are either at important technical levels or breaking out. The nice thing about commodities are 2 fold. Number one is that they are non correlated.  Copper does not care about what Facebook does. They march to their own drummer. Also they tend to run in big cycles. CORN for instance is emerging from a 10 year bear market.  It isnt beyond imagination that we have seen the first six months of a 5-7 year run.  Point being dont think you’ve “missed the move”  Details inside the video.


A detailed walk-through of the levels and trading strategy for the indexes is given in the video ( link above) . The static charts are provided for reference. The FATMAAN names are also reviewed in the video.
