Trading the Stats: Week 15

Rate this Entry
I'm on the road this week, working with a netbook is difficult for me, so I'll make this short and sweet.

Both SPX/W4500 had a below average week, AGG had a great week (2nd best in 12 years)

ESD is scheduled to be in the F-Fund on Tuesday, I plan to delay this signal, perhaps opting to go directly into the S-Fund. I have not made a final decision yet (mostly because I was not able to watch the markets last week)

Last week, ALPAFS got a sell signal across all 4 indexes, in a normal world, I would have exited to the sidelines, but there are reasons I chose to cancel the IFT. For SPX/W4500/NDX, the trading range is tight and the breakdown of Os was only by 1-box. We then created a new column of Xs and if they breakout, it will trigger a BEAR TRAP. You don't see these signals very often, and I have never seen this setup across 3 indexes at the same time. Based on what I've seen, I've made the right call (at least until a direction is decided)

Looking at the S&P 500's long-term 6-month chart on the daily scale: This is the exact setup we need to breakout to higher highs, consolidation following an upwave is your friend. As mentioned before, we have a good base of support in the 2020 zone, so until this area is violated, I see no reason to get bearish on this timeframe.

I call week 14 a pause week, I think week 15 will do much better, the stats show when SPX/W4500 close down for week 14, week 15 has better odds.
