Weekend Review and Watchlist

AlphaCapture

Volatility returned to the market this week, and how you reacted or interpreted it will depend greatly on your strategy and process. It may also depend on how you define ‘the market’, as from my longer-term view what is unfolding still appears to be a form of rotation rather than a full blown correction that many commentators …

New Highs

Another potential correction over. This time we barely made it to the -4% mark before ratcheting higher to leave in place another V-shaped move that has been the hallmark of this rally over the last 18 months. If you just play the indices or use them as your guide for your stock positions these type …

Exit Long NASDAQ

AlphaCapture

Exit Long NASDAQ ($NQ_F) 6/26 +$855.00 per contract The NASDAQ finally triggered its exit signal for a small profit, a week after the S&P did the same. It looks to have fallen even further overnight so it could be an interesting end to the week tomorrow. There’s no question this is not the uniform sell-off or correction …
