“When I see a bubble, I BUY it” George Soros
We can make a lot of money if in fact a bubble is forming. I think the key is to keep employing a “roll and protect” strategy. As your options go up 100% – 200% continue to roll up to even money and book profits while still remaining in the trade. There will be periodic rug pulls with the possibility that what ever positions you have on will go to zero or be severely menaced. That is why you don’t want to leave a lot of embedded gains in your positions. Your wins don’t count until they are in the bank.

SPX valuation pushing 22x; well above 5yr and 10 yr averages
You’ll hear a lot about the surging China market today.
Will the breakout hold?
SPY and iwm have been trapped in trading ranges for 3 weeks. THat may change today as futures are popping on the back of a strong Asian session. If these breakouts hold the upside could be substantial. The trading range was $14 . THe measured move points to $328 on SPY if the breakout holds.
Keep in mind that the open will leave a big gap below and that there is an unfilled gap from Friday. So from that perspective there is reason for caution but for now the market looks strong as it looks past covid and other worries. Keep a long bias and keep ratcheting up your stops.
Strategy and Tactics – Lean Bullish
- Bulls emerging after a strong Asian session
- A break above the recent trading range targets much higher prices if the break out holds.
- Vol has been getting crushed. Currently 27. Moves below 25 will add to bullish flows. Above 30 is cautionary.
- Eye’s wide open though trying to keep open and flexible to new data and inputs.
- Expecting a hi-vol summer with Covid and political headlines whipsawing markets
- I realize its difficult, but don’t lock it on an idea or thesis. Stay open and flexible in your thinking. Let price be our guide. Stay mentally flexible here.

China stocks have been hot. Keep an eye on BABA. Price in no man’s land at the moment but $230 will come up fast and be worth an alarm for a potential breakout to new highs.
Price is flagging just below $62; a break above opens the door to the next leg higher. Set an alarm and be ready.
