Technical analysis is bearish for the short-term (30-days), neutral for the intermediate-term, and bullish for the long-term timeframes.

Overall: We have entered a period of market stagnation with a sideways movement. The old minor support at $236.35 is now resistance. On the short-term we are definitely bearish and need to play the market as such. We are still bullish on the long-term.


I am now down to 47% invested in stock. This represents momentum stocks and stocks assigned to me from option trades. Currently I have 8 stocks outside of the momentum group. I have 11 puts short going into next week. I will not be selling any more puts until the market shows evidence of an upturn. In the meanwhile, I will sell covered calls on the eight option stocks I currently own and will maintain the trailing stops on the momentum stocks.

The premium service has all my option and momentum trades that you can follow in real time.
