FUTURES 4AM

I used my handy Microsoft Paint to create the red candle that will form at tomorrow's open (on the 10-day chart). The gap will be greater than the huge gap up that started the March 10th multi-week rally. Keep in mind that this will likely create a force spike in which the gap will not recover intraday. It looks like the SPX will open at or very close to the 50-day MA at 791. Obama's speech on the automakers should be at 11AM.

Yes, I went long FAZ at $19.7999 before the close on Friday as documented on my blogs at iBC and greenfaucet. Make note of support levels since some of them will get sliced though immediately at the open. It's time to make some spending money for my Cancun trip.

As of 4AM EST (may change up until the open):

John,

Can you interpret the term "inverse head-and-shoulders formation." What does this possibly mean in the short term. I am referencing VZ if you would want to look at the chart I am asking about.

John C. Lee said...

oh yea, VZ is a good example.

The inverse H&S is a reliable bullish reversal pattern. First, a higher low is achieved on the daily charts, followed by a healthy pullback, a breakout from the pullback above the neckline confirms the inverse H&S. The "neckline" is the resistance level connecting the tops of the two shoulders.

John,

So being in put options and needing the stock to get around $28-$28.50 to make money or break even on my trade is not a good thing. The stock can not break the mid $29's on the downside.

John,

I have the July $30 puts. I still have till the april expirations before time decay starts to come into affect. I am stuck in a trade that was not intended to be a two week stand still.

John, would you please post the web address for your blogs at iBC?

Thanks,

We'll, you have to consider the fact that VZ is stuck in between two powerful moving averages. That's the reason why it's been zigzagging the past few days.
