The good news is that we once again nailed the short-term market direction, and our nuggets from last week performed very well.
While there is the typical battle between ‘permabulls’ and ‘permabears’ as to whether the bottom is in or this is just a bear trap, we’ll stick to what has served us so well, time and time again.
At this point the current bullishness appears to be tied in with earnings season, as I’ve suggested several times even in the lead up to earnings.
And while it looks like there’s more upside juice in this current cycle, it’s not without some headwinds around the corner, with the timing likely to be after the next couple of weeks, or perhaps during.
As in the last few weeks, most of the stocks highlighted today will be of a bullish nature, but you should use our trade management practices to protect your profits. In these conditions, protect your profits almost immediately, and use our P2 mechanism to latch onto a trend if it manifests.
Same as last week. In the short term I still expect the recent upward momentum to continue in its rather patchy way. In terms of a subsequent retracement or down move, that is now a subject to consider very carefully.

The Main Indices
The SPY has powered beyond its 50- and 200-dma’s.
The QQQ has also now surged through its 200-dma, closing at its highest level since September.
The IWM has seen the expected upside, closing at its highest level since September.
Again, as I’ve mentioned in the last few weekends and earlier in this note, the market is in the mood for further short-term upside, but you still need to be vigilant with your profit protection.
- Longer Term Market Timer (OVIsi): Amber and will likely turn half-green next week.
- Medium Term Swing Timer: Positive and not overbought.
- SPY OVI: Slightly positive.
Further upside looks likely to continue in the short term.
