QLD flat for Tuesday....06.11.18

The TrendX is positive, the volatility skew is neutral and the paradigm Alert is positive....yet, contrary to logic, the QLD for tomorrow is flat...just part of the risk equation.  All eyes on Singapore.

QLD long for MOnday....06.10.18

Despite G7 fireworks the general market mood appears to be positive and, depending on the trend of the NOKO/US summit, the market could experience a big jump in enthusiasm. Despite the woefully overbought technical levels the prospects for new highs are clearly evident.

QLD long for Friday...06.07.18

Defying common sense the QLD Vixen and PVOL models are long while the mean regression MR model flat.  To date, the MR model has produced the best win/loss ratio while the PVOL (blended priced pivot momentum and volatility trend) has produced the best total returns (keeping in mind we use the risk management strategy of never allowing an early wing become a loss intraday...this has produced an additional 15.5% total return not reflected in the published metrics.)

QLD mixed for Thursday...06.06.18

QLD is mixed for Thursday as volatility continues to erode (see RSQ line).  The PVOL model is long, the Vixen is flat...as is the mean regression MR model. Volume is low and liquidity is waning so caution is advised despite the apparent blissful trading meltup.

QLD mixed, SSO flat for Wednesday.....06.05.18

Same signals as yesterday.  Medical issues kept me at the hospital most of the day so late posting.

Good news = market pop....now we just need to watch out for a red surprise on Turnaround Tuesday.

QLD long and SSO flat for Monday....06.03.18

If SPY can break through 272 we're likely to retrace to the old highs. 
All the news is good for now.  Italy apparently not a worry to the markets despite potential long term repercussions.
TrendX signals are flashing a warning.
