    Bummer, since the pre-markets turned down, here's a revision. So now it's 53% chance of a .63% gain, vs. a 47% chance of a .49% loss.

    Good morning

    Friday fell short of my expectations, I hadn’t realized why, until Tom mentioned something in his Market Talk thread.

    “The recent track record of Friday quadruple witching expiration day in September has been pretty bad, and next week (post Sep expiration week) has a negative bias, and a poor one at that, but sometimes the Monday of post expiration Sep is actually up before a decline into the rest of the week.”

    I don’t normally track Options Expiration, but inlight of getting blindsided, I thought I should post September's Historical stats based on the 3rd Friday’s Expiration, and the following 5 trading days after. This somewhat falls inline with trading days 12-16 (Tue to Mon) being statistically the weakest period of September.

    A not so quick update.

    Having finished 10 trading days, MTD we are down -1.27%. From the previous 21-years, of the 8 times we were down MTD on trading day 10, we also closed the month down.

    20230915-MTDR.png

    ___
    On our Day of Week chart, this might be some of the lowest win ratios Iíve posted. We have 3 days tied at 45%, & Thursday at 27%.


    Mondayís 21-year win ratio + 2023 is 53% across 1,022 trading sessions. The last 10 of 11 Mondays have closed positive at 91% We did a similar 10-run back in July 2020 and even an 11-run back in June 2005. Regardless, the Monday win ratio phenomenon is inflated, and at some point in time we might expect this to average back down.

    For todayís trend analysis, itís mixed. The 1st column (the gap data) is statistically the most accurate & useful in the short-term (when applying an IFT). This combined with the marketís direction at the IFT-Cutoff, makes for a great combination.


    Trading the direction of the opening Gap & IFT-Deadline: From the previous 27 events where both the index gaped up, and the IFT-Deadlineís 11:59 candlestick closed higher (than the previous dayís close) the index win ratio (how the day closed) was 81%. When both the Gap and IFT-Deadline were down, the dayís lose ratio was 96%

    While it wasnít a great week for the AutoTracker, the Top-600 are still up 10.12% YTD, and the Top-50 are nearly twice that at 19.46% YTD.

    Good morning


    For todayís trend analysis, the premarkets flipped over to red and gaped down -.22% on the open. From the statistical viewpoint, it looks like today will be a down day.

    Good morning


    I won’t be home for the open, so for today’s trend analysis, I’ll post the Gap data separately.

    20230920-TA.png

    Here's the range of opening gaps vs. how the day closed.

    20230920-GAP.png


    Report Card Time.
    When I said I wanted an entry below SPX 4440, I did not mean I would be happy with 4443.96

    The C-Fund has an 8.50% edge over me. If I wanted to cherry pick the data, I’d tell you I’ve taken 88.7% less risk while earning 50% of the gains. While it’s fun to say that, it still doesn't outperform the Index…

    Good morning

    This morning the index gapped down -.67%

    The last 27 times SPX gapped down < -.50%, the day closed up 2 times.

    At this moment, we are both in range & time of the chart below, which was posted a few days back.

    Good morning

    For myself, Iíve met Septemberís 2-IFT limit and Iím satisfied with the entries. If we go lower in October, then Iíll take another entry, if we go higher Iíll take a partial exit, then look to re-enter at lower levels.

    20230922-TSP.png
    ___
    On the 63-Year Historical September chart, weíve breached -3.81% which is the average-of-all-closing-loses, (from the 35 times September closed down). I like these levels but Iíd also like to see if we can go lower.

    20230922-MTD.png

    ___
    From the March 2023ís Yearly low, we are 134 sessions into the linear channel, weíve just pierced standard deviation 3. In theory, this just might be a great time to buyÖ

    Good morning

    Tied with June 2005, we now have 11 straight positive Mondays, while the rest of the days-of-week are under the 21-Year 54% average win ratio.

    20230915-DoW.png


    ___
    Meanwhile the AutoTracker’s Top-600 & Top-50 have taken off some risk with a sizeable shift into the G-Fund.

    20230915-AT.png

    ___
    Having finished 15 trading days, MTD we are down -4.16%. We can see we are within range of the negative averages, which shows this Monday might be the peak of this 5-day downturn.

    20230915-MTD.png


    ___
    A long-term Fibonacci chart drawn from 2023’s yearly low & high, shows we are within striking distance of the .382% Fib level at SPX 4302. From this timeframe, It appears to be a normal retracement which still looks healthy. Still, from here we can clearly see we’ve established both a lower high & a lower low, so we could definitely say we are currently in a downtrend.

    Good morning

    Here's a peak into October, there are 22 trading days, with no holidays.

    From 63-Years on the Monthly timeframe October has the 5th best Win Ratio at 62%. The 2nd best average-of-gains at 4.26%. The 4th best average at 1.09% & the 2nd worst average-of-losses at -4.05%.

    From 21-Years on the daily trading day timeframe.
    The first 9 days are mixed, days 10-17’s mid month hump look good, while the end of month is mixed.

    It will only cost us -1.36% to test a 50% retracement of the yearly low-to-high. At this level, we have the rising red 200-SMA on a path to cross above the purple 500-SMA. Add to this, from the July Yearly high, the bottom of standard deviation 3's linear channel resides close to this level.
