Thoughts & Comments
  • The market has become more bearish for this week. Most bearish around Friday.
  • In addition, NOAA's prediction for a spike in the Planetary A-Index has not only increase but also projected out 1 additional day. That means selling. See Space Weather table.
  • Lot's of earnings reports on Tuesday.
Spiral Indicator

The Spiral indicator forecasted a bearish day for Monday (+/- 1-day) that would see a drop in the OEX of -1/2% or more. Didn't see it yesterday so the chances it would happen today was greatly increased. Bingo! We got the move.

Planetary A-Index

Planetary A-Index was predicted to be high on Monday. High numbers = Selling. No move down Monday but NOAA forecasted an even higher move in the Index for today. A no-brainer. It was and did drop today.

Binary Options

I recommended some Binary Option Puts at 9:00 with the belief the market would close lower. At 9:00 the SPY was at 198.24. It closes at 196.93.

Stock Options

Bought BIDU and Z Puts at the Open because they have been sky-rocketing higher and the Spiral charts were screaming they should be going lower. Z Puts increase by 200%. BIDU Puts were up 150% Nice Profits.
