The past week or so we expected an oversold bounce and now that it has come and gone more contagion fears have emerged, this time in Mario & Luigi land that makes pasta, pizza and tomato sauce along with the cheeses.

This latest fear-mongering along with recent economic data in the US and worldwide( which have been less than expected) and also the upcoming U.S. debt limit crisis which will get resolved (just not until it has hurt a good chunk of the economy) but not in a timely manner because like their waistlines, Americans cant/don’t like to curb their spending.

 

I was looking at my favorite time frame, the Weekly and on the futures I noticed an early stage but possible H&S pattern. Here it is simplified for your enjoyment, voice in your ideas in the comment box.

Positions: Rolled a July put into a September put.

I was right just not satisfied after the 8 day rally which reignited at the green moving averages above (risk reward wasn’t there anymore but I was high on “hopium”)

Shooting Stars are everywhere. Is it time to turn into a growling Bear?

I noticed something strange today looking at my favorite timeframe. (half a day 🙂 )

Stars were shooting everywhere.
Many symbols like $SPX $SPY $INDU $OEX $COMPX $QQQQ etc had the shooting star pattern to an extent.
I chose to include only 3 to keep it simple

Now before I insert the image I would like to explain what a shooting star pattern is thanks to Stockcharts.com

Shooting Star: A single day pattern that can appear in an uptrend. It opens higher, trades much higher, then closes near its open. It looks just like the Inverted Hammer except that it is bearish.

Here is a visual aid to go with the definition.  (Click To Enlarge)

Now bear in mind this is my own opinion of what I see happening. My system has yet to give a sell signal but today I did receive a sell in GLD so if gold is losing value that means market is going down (most times that’s the correlation I’ve seen.)

Now listen up you Goldman Sachs!  Stop reading my blog and proving me wrong. Let the market go down like it wants to.
Thank you very much.
