Got Fooled On That One…

I was really looking for the market to roll over hard today, and it looked like it was going too... until some news rumor was released that said they were going to bailout Greece.  That news was all the excuse the market needed to rally up to that 1080 level that I thought it could go too, but was highly unlikely.  The news said that Germany was going to bail them out, and then it was later reported as false.  Coincidence?  Maybe?  Or, maybe it was designed to shake out all the bears?

I really didn't think it had the energy left to rally up that high, but the market will fool you when you least expect it too.  This doesn't change my belief that we are going down... it only delays it for another day.  Looking at the chart below, you can see that we tagged the upper trendline around 1080, and we are now getting ready to start minor wave 3 down, inside larger/intermediate wave 3 down.

Tony-Caldaro-60-minute-SPY-chart-02-09-2010

Once it starts, it should fall quite fast, and not allow any bears to get short.  That's probably why they ran the tape up today too... to squeeze out all the bears, and suck in some more bulls.  I didn't see this move coming, or I would have waited for it.  Of course if I had seen it, they wouldn't have done it.  Just the way they like it... trick everyone.

From looking at the charts, it appears that they must start minor wave 3 down, (inside larger/intermediate wave 3) tomorrow, as they've hit their upper target zone now, and must either bust threw it, or fall hard.  There is no doubt that we are at a crossroads here, and either fall hard or rally hard.  I have too trust the charts, and they still point down.

That's why I remained short today, even though that ramp up put my positions underwater a little.  These wave 2 up's are always violent and are designed to shake out the bears.  I remain short, and un-shaken.  I still see this week as down, with a fore-casted low of 1020.  No one said trading was easy, and no one is always right.  I was wrong on Monday being a huge down day, and wrong again on today selling off.

Could I just be off a day or two?  I believe so, and hope so... Even though "hope" is a useless emotion, and shouldn't be brought into trading... I'm crossing my fingers on this one.  The thing that keeps me confident is the Technical Analysis.  It still is extremely bearish on many, many charts.

The fact that the market couldn't break through 1080 was huge, as that resistance held firm.  There are 3 different trend lines intersecting at that level.  It's going to have too gap above it to break through it.  That means some commitment on the bulls, and I just don't see it.  The volume going up was so low, it wasn't hardly reading on my charts, yet the sell off volume was huge.

That tells me that retail traders bought the Greece rumor and drove up the market, and big intitutions sold it.  I'm not buying into this rally.  It may seem like I'm being stubborn, but I'm not.  I'm just sticking to my belief in what I see in the charts... which is bearish still.

As you may know, I use a lot of different ways to see where the market is going.  I use Technical Analysis, Elliottwave, Support and Resistance Levels, and tie all those together with news events.  They all still tell me we are going down.  Right or wrong, I stick with my forecast.  I remain short.

Well G… something just ain't right, and I can feel it in my bones. I think I'll pass on Nightline, but I'd sure like too be right on this one. I haven't every been so heavily short, and it's worrisome of course, but I've also never been this heavily convinced that we're going down.

I have to stick with what the charts tell me, along with the news, and of course my gut. I'm riding this puppy out until a break of 1080, and conformation.

I'll be heavily underwater if that happens, but I will take my loss like a man… if that happens? I'm betting it doesn't.

Good Luck to us all…

If we gap up, I'll sell my calls at the open. The pit traders will try to close the gap. A lot of charts over at Trading to Win are suggesting that a turning point comes at around 10-11am tomorrow. I'm betting that our near term high is set then, and we probe downwards, maybe retest the 1050 level.

I'm actually bearish. I moved my 401K into 66% “safety plays” and 33% long (from 100%) in December at SPX 1120 because I expected a plunge. I got out of small-caps, commodities, international markets, etc. I rotated into things like PASAX (check the chart — it's still up from where I got in on Dec. 24th, if you include the dividend), bonds, health care (which hasn't worked so well), etc.

What do we need to get new highs? Bears (to short squeeze). We ran out of Bears last month at 1150. What do we need to get more Bears? Lower prices and bad news.

I'll be a believer in P3 when I see a 10% down day in AAPL.

I just made a $VIX chart.

In my opinion, the $VIX is looking short term bearish. The critical things to watch are the RSI trendline and the Slow Stoch.

If that plays out, the indexes go up. No way around it.

You're right… it looks bearish. The market could go sideways to slightly up tomorrow… kind of a “pause” day, which would be bullish and bearish for the vix.

I'm hanging until Thursday for sure, as a terrorist attack would change everything. I admit, I missed the best entry for this market, but I'm staying awhile longer.

Thanks for the vix chart though, as it's clearly looking bearish.

That rally up was on such light volume that I couldn't hardly see the bar on my charts. Yet, the sell off was a huge red bar of volume. That was all retail traders buying the rumor of the Greece bailout, while the institutions were selling.

I think we still have more wave 2 to come. If the purpose of wave 2 is to make bears reconsider, it hasn't done that. Almost all of the EW blogs are in “P3 is here!” mode. A short squeeze from this level 1070ish to 1100ish would be absolutely brutal. At 1104 or so (a retest of 4 of 1), bears would flip out and maybe capitulate.

That said, the market doesn't seem to have the juice to get there. I don't know. Maybe bulls took some profits on the way down and kept their powder dry.

My trading plan has me long in real estate, expecting the short squeeze to come tomorrow.

Since there is also 2 tons of explosives missing from Kinder company (owned by Goldman Sachs), he could be planing so terrorist attack? I hope not, as I don't want people to die so the market will go down. I just want it to correct like it should. I'd rather see some financial crisis then a terrorist attack happen. Let's hope that's not it…

Yeah, I totally know what you mean.

Opex is next week, and there are way way way too many people holding puts. Forgetting about manipulation or geopolitical events, the expected behavior of the market is to cause the most pain, and I think the market will do what it can to shake people out of their puts.

Now, “news” and “events” are the big wildcards here. What made me the most suspicious today is the “lack of reversal” after the German govt denied the imminent Greek bailout.

Should we get to 1100ish, we're setting up a monster inverse head and shoulders pattern that could play out to new highs. (Just like in November!).

This is my post for TNA as of last night. As I type this, TNA is down 14 cents from yesterdays close.

TNA was up 4.1% today, nearly forming a doji. A gap up that didn't quite fill. Friday's hammer effect delayed by a day, perhaps.

For the 2nd day in a row, today had a higher high and a higher low. To me, that remains a positive sign.

Volume today for TNA was higher than normal.

We are in a Full Moon Trade, generally positive for TNA.
[ After eight days, the trade is DOWN 7.0% ]

Tony (man has no last name) still says this Full Moon bullishness is canceled out by the Jan 15th Solar Eclipse, creating a Panic Cycle. Not good for TNA, but he seemed wrong today.

RVX (VIX for RUT) was up and down all day and ended lower.

Based on the up day today after Friday's hammer, and based on the /ES & /NQ futures being up as I write this, it looks like tomorrow will be another up day for TNA. This way of looking at things has been dreadfully inaccurate in the past. World events dominate at times.

You should switch to the disqus platform for your comments. It will make it harder for the anon's to post. Most won't take the time to setup fake accounts. Sure, some will, but it will knock a lot of them down.

You do have some good people there, and I read you're comments several times a week (not everyday, as I get busy sometimes). You've been right quite a bit lately… but you're call for a rally tomorrow seems puzzling?

I was wrong on Monday and Tuesday being the “Big Sell Off” days, but I know believe we will sell off hard into the close, and won't stop until Friday or so… making a new low around 1020…

We'll see I guess? Good luck to both of us, and thanks for stopping by…

TNA closed up 0.5% today, after falling below the low of yesterday.

After two days in a row with higher highs and higher lows, today had a lower high and a lower low. Small amounts, but lower is lower. To me, that is a negative sign.

Volume today for TNA was normal.

We are in a Full Moon Trade, generally positive for TNA.
[ After nine days, the trade is DOWN 6.5% ]

Tony (man has no last name) says this Full Moon bullishness is canceled out by the Jan 15th Solar Eclipse, creating a Panic Cycle. His Panic Cycle seems played out, but runs until Feb 14th.

Based on the slightly lower low and slightly lower high today, TNA for tomorrow is not attractive, long or short.
