[edit]  As noted in the email: 

Note:  My apologies for posting it so late in the day.  In fact I am delaying this email a few more minutes so that the market can close and cooler heads may prevail.  This is not a bear call, but rather just a little setup that I am taking a shot at as I had thought the market might bounce to this level (after the declines on Tues. and Wed.) and had planned to poke it short if it did.

A very simple one from the short side.  SPY has bounced to a short-term resistance point.  A short at 211 +/- could be taken if one has bearish conviction.  The handy stop loss is above 212.

This is by no means a recommendation.  It is just a setup with limited risk.  I sold SPY short outright (no leverage), but I also have long positions.  I will not tolerate much upside with this position.


30 min. view shows 2 gaps that can fill.  So maybe one might wait until they fill and use a stop loss above 212 to suit risk tolerance.


Sell Short:  212 +/-

Target:  206 (preliminary)

Stop Loss:  212+

A reminder that chart based NFTRH+ updates are just trade setup ideas, which may not be revisited as the parameters are already noted. They are meant as a starting point for further research if interested. Fundamentals-based ideas are also provided for your further research only. I will not personally buy every item highlighted and will sometimes sell – without prior notice (because this takes time and resource away from NFTRH’s main functions) – any item that I do buy, below target, which is something I often do as a trader. Also please be aware that I am not a fundamental stock analyst.
