My Swing Trading Approach
I’ll be looking to add 1-2 new trade setups to the portfolio today. Right now, I am at 70% cash. I want to increase that some today.
VIX – notable pop of 7.5% yesterday taking it back up to 10.5%
T2108 (% of stocks trading below their 40-day moving average): 53% currently. Not good. Stocks as a whole continue to weaken. Dropped 10.6% yesterday.
Moving averages (SPX): Holding all the major moving averages.
Industries to Watch Today
Technology + Energy are the two strongest sectors at the moment. Consumer Defensive + Industrials are showing the most weakness.
My Market Sentiment
Despite yesterday’s sell-off, it was an inside trading pattern, meaning, the price action remained contained inside of the price range from Friday. Also, 5-day moving average held up too.
