Sell confirmed. No short.

3:45pm: We lost the short signal, but a sell signal remains. So my system heads to the sidelines. I notice VXX is up and VIX is down. This usually means a pullback is imminent. On the other hand, seasonality as we all know remains strong. It will probably lead to a bunch of boring range days to close out the year.

11am: It's only 11am ET, but we are getting a strong short signal. If it holds the system will book profits in TNA and open a partial short position. I may consider using a different ETF for shorting, given the tendency for small caps to outperform this time of year. BGZ is an old favorite of mine. I will update later... happy trading.


  1. Interesting... I guess I am glad I didn't get in TNA this morning (mainly because it kept going up)...

    I will wait and see what happens with your signal later today :)

  2. Thanks for the heads-up. I'll stay tuned.

  3. Thanks for all you do, J-Trader. I wish you a wonderful holiday season.

  4. Thanks! Happy holidays to you also.

  5. Merry Christmas J-Trader and to your family.

    Thanks for your blog and trading signals.
