General market thoughts
We had a dump and test of 260 yesterday and possible channel bottom with the reclaim of 262. We got the 268 test then dump and are gapping up here in premarket. Got some news that the Huawei CFO was released on bail yesterday.
I’m looking and possible downtrend break and push into 270-272 levels before next leg down. Since we are getting lots of headlines regarding how market is going to tank again, I’m starting to keep an open mind for a run higher. Checkout this chart. We have a big washout and higher lows. There could be an exhaustion squeeze back into 275-280 coming before the ultimate FU dump sub Feb levels.(this is me not saying this is what will happen, but me being prepared for possibilities)
Morning action was rough. Got whipsawed until we got the choppy grind up in morning which ultimately and after lunch sell-off. Overall this seems bad and the push was exhausted.
Overall market is still in a precarious spot and good news isn’t trusted. Lots of headline risk and UVXY remains elevated and over 62.
Pre-market NotesLooking for dip and hold to run higher or push and reject of 268 level for dump back lower. Much harder to make a high probability play on this now.
RecapChoppy Choppy Choppy. Entries on the log were decent and ultimately worked but you had to take profits along the way and reload. We didn't get the 270 target we had and a clean exhaustion dump in ah. I definitely missed the short on this being to long biased for 270. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Pre-market NotesHolding well overall if this reclaims 170-172 we could see 180+ coming.
Recapno trades but it held the 170 level well until afternoon dump [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Pre-market Notesdips on 109 for 110+ continuation. Overall I still think all time highs are possible this year or early next
RecapI think using MSFT as a market indicator of push exhaustion would have been good. I kept asking myself why isn't MSFT pushing into 112 with given the push on everything else, if finally gave a pop into 111 but it was hard one only to dump end of day [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Pre-market NotesMoving to back burner after today. Looks like consolidation mode. may grab some long dated 45 calls.
Recapmore consolidation and slight grind up. Taking it off radar. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Pre-market NotesOverall holding really well. Same plan, wait for a dump to get long.
Pre-market NotesIdeally gaps and squeeze out run into 20-24 out of the gate to sell the calls I bought yesterday and then get short. Hey a guy can dream right... more likely we push into 19-19.80 and a fast yank. volume is light in premarket so leaning toward a possible short. If we get over 7m in vol again today and that yank dumps and holds 15.80-16 or 17-17.50 levels all day we could see the secondary push into 20+ coming.
RecapWhat a beast. nailed last sells on CORT at .80 from .20 entry -- alerted long and sells and warning about 19.50 level live in discord room. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Pre-market Notesfailed drug trial. Looking for a push(72-75 levels) and failed momo to get some 70 puts if cheap enough. may even yolo 65 puts.
RecapDidn't get the levels I wanted for a trade so no trades on this -- nice double bottom bounce off the 65 level and short gettings squeezed. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Pre-market NotesGoing to be eyeing dips for short squeeze higher. Ideally dip 19.80 and then rip into 22.
RecapSometimes it sucks when you're too patient for an entry and miss a run. I sometimes struggle to join trenders after the move starts. What a run from 20 to 23! [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Pre-market NotesIdeally gaps and pops into 45.50-46 area on open to get a short for 43 test, if 43/42 breaks we should see 40. If 42-43 level fast dump and hold and it started to grind, I'm also open for a long for 2-3pts of upside. Watch discord, there should be a play both directions on this today.
RecapHad to play this with commons but nailed short alert in afterhours the day before and the covers into 43. Instead of the 46 level pop we got 47 which shifted the trade structure. Still got a nice short off with covers around 46, but no strong break of 45.50 to get the downside again. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Pre-market NotesLooking for more downside
RecapI was wrong on more downside but still found a trade setup on this. Got a great rip on the open into 19 for a short and fast dump back on 18. but that held. You have to watch for that and not get stubborn. Especially on fast gains in first 30 minutes. Lock those gains in and then see what develops. You can always go back in. Once this crossed over 19, shorts got fried. Perfect hod breakout, pull back retest of vwap and 19 level and then grind higher into lunch to hit that 20 [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
