    Hi Guys,


    Just about ready to sleep but I want to post this as it sounds important.

    Tea leaves on EW thinks that market is at an inflection point. We are at a point that market can run 800 points up or 800 points down. Bias is that its down but if we move 70 points up and thru 3050 we might be on a melt up.
    Main point of this post is to keep your position small and don’t be a pig. Don’t go balls to the wall short or long here.In the face of possible majors impulsive wave up versus major impulsive wave down one should always reduce risk because there will be plenty of opportunity to catch the train in which ever way that train decides to go.You don’t want to be in the house of pain or even lose your account.

    Good Night all.Later Gator.

    The inverted yield curve is now at -2.3bips. It’s accelerating.
    Kam my best guess here is for a meltup into yearend followed by a significant correction in 2020.
    Also looks like Symantec which I bought recently will get a takeover bid from Broadcom. I need the US$ to travel.(lol)

    Well the isn’t the $SPX but with price trapped between the $24 breakout point and 25 resistance I see Mr. Arrow isn’t convinced of a potential breakout yet. I’ve overlaid the SPY to show the difference. They both trade in the same basic direction but the does tend to lag a little. So with this chart we need to see price clear $25 and the Long Term Modified MACD to curl back up again to suggest a trend change back to up again. The arrows seem to know where to go………….
