Not a Good Spot for Day Traders to Short the Market, IMO [w/ edit]

[edit] A subscriber reminds me that tomorrow is SOMA day at the Fed, further complicating things. Ref. this post from mid-month: SOMA That End of Month Bearishness?.

At least that is what the Nasdaq 100 and its smack of the daily SMA 50 along its uptrend is saying. Notice I wrote “day traders”, because the summer risk theme accounts for the possibility that SPX holds support and rises to its gap before risk – if applicable – is realized.

Meanwhile, NDX at the SMA 50 does not look like a good bear bet right now. Take out the June low and then it would be a different story. I am actually tempted to give this a try long.
