Hold.

All systems remain short. Not a great day to be short although I suppose it could've been worse. As planned I added to my TZA position. Thanks to helicopter Ben, I will probably regret this...

  2. Alex,

    Who or what has confirmed a breakout for SPY and TNA? In the absence of relevant technical information, I don't know what to make of your post.

  3. Didn't get the gap up open today, so didn't add at the open, but did add above yesterday's HOD and at the close. Same game tomorrow: Add on big gap up open and/or above today's HOD. Then we sit back and see what shakes. This move should be erased (statistically) within about 2 weeks and, generally, the move after Fed days is to take back part of the move -- in this case, it's "buyer's remorse". My other indicators finally (finally) registered panic buying today (they've been very quiet for quite some time), so that bodes well for a fade play on a gap up open tomorrow. For SPX, though, as long as they hold 1445, the bulls still own this. Bears need to clear that (w/gusto).

  4. J,

    I saw a study somewhere (could be Marketsci.com) that mean reversion has not been working in this market. I was wondering what percentage of the Composite signal is due to mean reversion and what to trend.

    Thanks,
    Alex
