Great stock trades based on fundamentals and technical analysis.
While the S&P 500 had a nice rally of about 20 points from Thursday morning's low to Friday morning's high, it was not really the big move in one day that has usually occurred
recently after a small NYMO
change day. With the somewhat muted reaction to this indicator so far, we're looking for a potential big move day on Monday, the first trading day after quadruple witching expiration.
Whereas on Wednesday we were looking for a move up, which we got, we're now leaning toward the next big move being down. The lackluster rally in response to the NYMO
indicator could portend a down move, though it's hard to tell if quadruple
witching expiration had an effect.
If Friday's lows get broken on Monday, we'll be looking for a more sizable down day. However, if the market breaks out above Friday's highs, we'll be looking for continued up side. In any case, we'll be ready for a break in either direction, as our system will react to wherever
the market goes. There should be some nice volatility on Monday from which active traders can profit.
Live testing of our automated system continues to go very well, with strong returns and minimal draw down
. With the arrival of our new hardware, we continue to expand the system's coverage. The bond and U.S. dollar futures trading so far has provided very nice gains to supplement the stock index futures trading, and we're now adding gold futures trading. We'll continue to expand the scope to include oil and other commodities.
To all the fathers out there, have a Happy Father's Day tomorrow!
