The Vaccine boost from early November plus a nice Santa rally have most markets in a stretched and technically overbought technical position so some caution is warranted.  That caution can take the form of using call spreads instead of straight calls,  rolling higher as calls go in the money to book profits quickly, Scaling back to certain degree on your overall market exposure, and / or blending a small percentage of short positions into your over all mix.  For the shorts, I am not talking about trying to pick a top and shorting highs, look for weak stocks that have rolled over and short into demonstrated weakness.  Remember Jesse.   BUY on a rising scale; SELL on a declining scale.    For whatever reason, FDX is a name i am watching. Price broke key support on Friday and looks poised to make a run lower to the 200ema.  I got a nice scalp on Friday.  Looking to re-enter short if the set up presents itself.

NYMO and NAMO, two of my go-to oscillators for OB / OV market conditions are right in the middle of their ranges, so no help there.  THe % of stocks over their 20ema is pushing the upper limits of historical ranges so some backing and filling can be anticipated but what I want to do is watch price above all else. Keep your stops fairly tight and respect them if hit. I think if a correction gets going , it could be a quick event vs limping lower.    THink a few 2% ++ down days in a row kinda thing.  Just guesses of course. Keep your head on a swivel. IWM is the index that is the most overbought and extended.

January OPEX is Friday

OPEX weeks are usually bullish, but then the week following OPEX can be bearish as gamma pinning action rolls off.  Adding to the potential for a green week is the fact that the “stimmy” monies are hitting accounts. Traders are reporting many got last week. I got mine on Friday.  This may give retail fresh ammo to buy more calls. The broad participation by retail has been confounding the pros and if we are in the midst of a parabolic blow off top of some kind, we want to participate as best we can, but with some guard rails.
