Month: May 2009

S&P500 10 Day MA Record High Percent Index:Volatility Index $SPXHILO:$VIX ($ES_F $SPY $SPX)

The SPXHILO fell relative to the VIX, indicating fewer stocks are trading at record highs as volatility rises. As the number of stocks making highs wanes, the odds of profitable investment decrease. I’m still selling leveraged ETF’s like FAS/FAZ BGU/BGZ TNA/TZA, but I’ve been taking my long positions off the table.

NYSE Summation Index Looks Ominous ($SPX $SPY $ES_F)

The NYSE Summation Index looks poised for a correction. The new red O indicates the 2 month uptrend has lost momentum. Investors should get defensive and exercise conservative risk management.

Twitter Ticker ($POT)

Potash was a market leader before the credit crisis, and though it is trading above various moving averages and the upper Bollinger, this is not a great investment vehicle. The trend is up so buyers have the advantage, but I doubt this stock will make all time highs soon.

S&P 500 Bullidex ($ES_F $SPY $SPX)

I’m too drunk to post anything pithy and wise, but I’ll point out that the S&P 500 Bullidex rose .28% to close at 225. The S&P is technically in an uptrend, so my bias remains on the buy side. Trade smart… I’m gonna chug this water and watch some porn…

S&P 500 Bullidex ($ES_F $SPY $SPX)

The S&P 500 Bullidex rose 6.26% to close at 227.4 as volatility fell relative to the number of rising stocks.
