Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

Monthly - Bearish. Large expansion of range to downside, closing below monthly 20ma for first time since October 2011.

Weekly - Large bottoming tail on this chart which is bullish at first blush, but difficult to say if such a reversal bar holds after such strong downward momentum.

Daily - Neutral to bearish. Market balancing at upper end of recent range but has not yet retraced even 50% of recent move from all time highs to the 8/24 swing low.

Good morning traders. Where will the short squeeze in crude oil relent? Key resistance levels are illustrated on the chart below.

Overnight, Crude Oil Futures (/CL) traded down to the 38.2% level (red arrow) of the Fibonacci study drawn from the high in May, down to the low made in August. Price has moved back higher off this level in the afterhours session.

There is a chance the short squeeze continues today, and if it does, it may finally find strong enough resistance at the 50.0% retracement level at 50.17.

Under The Hood

When we say "under the hood" we mean market internals, ie: what was really happening behind the scenes. ShadowTraders who listen to our daily broadcast every day live on the thinkorswim platform know that all closing figures on the major averages should only be interpreted in the context of market internals. Look for convergences and divergences in the breadth, a/d line, and trin figures below to either confirm or cast doubt on what all those talking heads on TV are telling you.

ShadowTrader Sector Trend Scores

The ShadowTrader Sector Trend Score matrix is a proprietary method of assigning values to twenty five sectors that are a representative cross-section of the market as a whole. The heat map in the trend score column defines the current strength or weakness of that sector using a proprietary weighting formula. Sectors bolded in green and red are the two sectors that experienced the largest absolute gain and loss in trend score over the prior day. We strongly urge subscribers to read the full explanation of the meaning and calculation of the trend scores in the Swing Trader User's Guide.


Twenty of twenty five ShadowTrader Sectors closed lower on Monday. XNG, XOI, and OSX have all closed higher four consecutive days. A sector is considered to be overbought when it has closed higher five consecutive days so any of these three sectors could reach that status today with a close higher. Beyond this, no individual sectors, nor the broad market are overbought or oversold at this time.

Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

Monthly - Neutral, prices moving sideways on this timeframe since February.

Weekly - Large bottoming tail on this chart which is bullish at first blush, but difficult to say if such a reversal bar holds after such strong downward momentum.

Daily - Slightly less than 50% retracement to upside from all time highs. Balancing day on Friday, today's action should determine which direction market breaks out of balance.

Good morning traders. A short trade in Moody's Corp. (MCO) is profiled below.

The blue horizontal lines on the chart above define the lower price range MCO fell into six trading days ago. The stock subsequently reversed back higher to test the top side of the range.

We're looking for this first test of resistance to hold and for the MCO to reverse lower.

An undercut of Friday's low will trigger the short entry with a relatively tight stop just over the top of Friday's high. The potential for price exploration to the bottom of the illustrated price range gives this trade a better than 5.0 to 1.0 reward to risk ratio.

Fifteen of twenty five ShadowTrader Sectors closed higher on Friday. BTK has closed higher four consecutive days. A close higher today will put it into overbought territory. Otherwise, no individual sectors, nor the broad market are overbought or oversold at this time.

Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

Monthly - Neutral, prices moving sideways on this timeframe since February.

Weekly - Bearish. Largest expansion of downside range on weekly bar for many years back. Close on the low indicates that further downside could be in the cards.

Daily - Neutral. Market has rallied close to 50.0% Fib retracement on what looks to be short covering.

Good morning traders. There are three short trade ideas listed in today's Bulls and Bears section. They are similar in setup and each was in a downtrend before the broad market broke down. The opportunity to short the two day bounce in each may present itself today.

One of the plays is a short of Air Lease Corp. (AL) which is illustrated below.

AL is approaching its first test of the resistance level that, until five days ago, served as support for the past two months.

The bounce from the breakdown lows is losing steam with decreasing volume. We're looking for a reversal back to the first target of 30.05 where the stock will either find support or follow through lower to test Monday's low at 28.12.

Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

Monthly - Neutral, prices moving sideways on this timeframe since February.

Weekly - Bearish. Largest expansion of downside range on weekly bar for many years back. Close on the low indicates that further downside could be in the cards.

Daily - Bearish. Large advance yesterday, but market has not retraced enough of the down move to change bias.

Good morning traders. An update of our proprietary measure of broad market money flow (MF) is posted below.

We last posted this chart in the 08/14/15 issue of the ShadowTraderPro Swing Trader.

On that day, we warned of the bearish diversion between MF and the S&P 500 Index (SPY).

Fast forward to yesterday's close and we have another bearish divergence to report. Yesterday's much celebrated relief rally was underpinned by bearish money flow. As a result, we are viewing the short term with skepticism that the stock market is done going lower.

Under The Hood

When we say "under the hood" we mean market internals, ie: what was really happening behind the scenes. ShadowTraders who listen to our daily broadcast every day live on the thinkorswim platform know that all closing figures on the major averages should only be interpreted in the context of market internals. Look for convergences and divergences in the breadth, a/d line, and trin figures below to either confirm or cast doubt on what all those talking heads on TV are telling you.

ShadowTrader Sector Trend Scores

The ShadowTrader Sector Trend Score matrix is a proprietary method of assigning values to twenty five sectors that are a representative cross-section of the market as a whole. The heat map in the trend score column defines the current strength or weakness of that sector using a proprietary weighting formula. Sectors bolded in green and red are the two sectors that experienced the largest absolute gain and loss in trend score over the prior day. We strongly urge subscribers to read the full explanation of the meaning and calculation of the trend scores in the Swing Trader User's Guide.


Twenty three ShadowTrader Sector closed higher on Wednesday. This relieved the oversold pressure we presented in yesterday's Looking Ahead section. The two sectors that closes lower were $DJUSCL and GDX which has closed lower four consecutive days. Another close lower by GDX will cause it to flag an oversold signal.

Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

Monthly - Neutral, prices moving sideways on this timeframe since February.

Weekly - Bearish. Largest expansion of downside range on weekly bar for many years back. Close on the low indicates that further downside could be in the cards.

Daily - Bearish. Weak bounce.

Good morning traders. Below is a list including each ShadowTrader sector with the current number of consecutive higher or lower closes.

We classify a sector as oversold when it has reached five consecutive lower closes. As of the end of yesterday's session, nineteen had qualified for this status . We have not seen this many sectors overbought or oversold at the same time for several years. In fact, we look for a reversal when 5-7 sectors reach at least 5 consecutive closes either higher or lower.

In order to provide greater context to the meaning of this list, we've provided the table above derived from years of data we've accumulated following these sectors. It displays the probability any sector has of closing in the same direction (up or down) for the listed number of cumulative days.

Under The Hood

When we say "under the hood" we mean market internals, ie: what was really happening behind the scenes. ShadowTraders who listen to our daily broadcast every day live on the thinkorswim platform know that all closing figures on the major averages should only be interpreted in the context of market internals. Look for convergences and divergences in the breadth, a/d line, and trin figures below to either confirm or cast doubt on what all those talking heads on TV are telling you.

Every single ShadowTrader Sector has closed lower 5 consecutive days or more (which qualifies as being oversold) except $DJUSNS, UTY, $DJUSHB, BTK, $DJUSCL, and GDX. We have provided a list of all ShadowTrader Sector with the consecutive number of lower closes for each in today's Looking Ahead section.

Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

Monthly - Neutral, prices moving sideways on this timeframe since February.

Weekly - Bearish. Largest expansion of downside range on weekly bar for many years back. Close on the low indicates that further downside could be in the cards.

Daily - Bearish but possible oversold in near term as we have now had three large body candles to the downside. Technical support on the S&P is not coming in until the October 15 low at 1820.66.

Good morning traders. This is the type of market where one should seriously consider spending the day doing anything else but trading. These are not the type of market conditions trading systems/processes were designed to exploit. In the meantime, most platforms are having a hard time keeping up with intraday price action. So tell us, given these two simple facts, where is the edge?

The chart below illustrates the next level of technical support for the S&P 500 Index (SPX). The Shanghai Composite Index is down another 6.00% as of Monday evening. If this is any indication of how SPX will trade in the short term, then reaching October 2014 lows has a very high probability of occurring.

There is no shame in sitting out until price action becomes a little more reasonable. There will be plenty of opportunity in weeks and months to come without some of the risk one must take on to participate in today's trade.

All 25 ShadowTrader Sectors closed lower on Monday. SOX was the only sector to close higher than -3.00%. $DJUSCA remained oversold with its tenth consecutive lower close. XOI also remained oversold with its eighth consecutive lower close while $DJSINS closed lower for the sixth consecutive day to remain oversold. Eleven other sectors flagged an oversold indication with a fifth consecutive lower close. These include XBD, XNG, $DJUSSW, CEX, XAL, $DJUSHC, SOX, XTC, TOB, BTK, and DRG.

MONTHLY - Neutral, prices moving sideways on this timeframe since February.

Weekly - Bearish. Largest expansion of downside range on weekly bar for many years back. Close on the low indicates that further downside could be in the cards.

Daily - Bearish. Multiple key short and longer term supports broken. Market may be moving to 61.80% retracement of rally from October 2014 lows which is in the 1940 area in the SPX cash.

Good morning traders. As of 2:30 am Monday morning, the E-Mini S&P 500 Index Futures (/ES) had traded 60.00 handles lower. At this morning's open, we will be looking to see where price of the S&P 500 Index (SPX) opens in relation to the 61.8% Fibonacci level of the study drawn from the October 2014 low to the May 2015 high which is illustrated on the chart below.

Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

MONTHLY - Neutral, prices moving sideways on this timeframe since February.

Weekly - Neutral. Bottoming tail bar on this timeframe which would be construed as bullish but not appearing anywhere near low end of a range. Market still churning in a limited area.

Daily - Bearish. Largest expansion of range this year and moving through recent supports. Oversold, however in near term. Long opportunities for bounces may start to present themselves today, depending upon if the SPX can hold weekly support at approximately 2027.

Good morning traders. A potential bounce play in the NASDAQ 100 Index (NDX) may become actionable today. Please observe the chart below.

The last two out of three times the McClellan Oscillator reached -175, NDX made significant moves back higher(magenta circles). The indicator is very close to reaching that level again.

Although we remain bearish on the overall market, there certainly could be an opportunity for a bounce play as the market takes a breathe following yesterday's shellacking. A touch of 4346.80 by NDX seems to be the level of support that would coincide with a McClellan touch of -175.

Under The Hood

When we say "under the hood" we mean market internals, ie: what was really happening behind the scenes. ShadowTraders who listen to our daily broadcast every day live on the thinkorswim platform know that all closing figures on the major averages should only be interpreted in the context of market internals. Look for convergences and divergences in the breadth, a/d line, and trin figures below to either confirm or cast doubt on what all those talking heads on TV are telling you.

ShadowTrader Sector Trend Scores

The ShadowTrader Sector Trend Score matrix is a proprietary method of assigning values to twenty five sectors that are a representative cross-section of the market as a whole. The heat map in the trend score column defines the current strength or weakness of that sector using a proprietary weighting formula. Sectors bolded in green and red are the two sectors that experienced the largest absolute gain and loss in trend score over the prior day. We strongly urge subscribers to read the full explanation of the meaning and calculation of the trend scores in the Swing Trader User's Guide.


Only two of twenty five ShadowTrader Sectors closed higher on Thursday. These were GDX and $DJUSCL. $DJUSCA remained oversold with its eighth consecutive lower close. XOI remained oversold with its sixth consecutive lower close.

Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

MONTHLY - Neutral, prices moving sideways on this timeframe since February.

Weekly - Neutral. Bottoming tail bar on this timeframe which would be construed as bullish but not appearing anywhere near low end of a range. Market still churning in a limited area.

Daily - Neutral to bearish. 100% retracements abound with trends lasting no more than a day and a half. Longer than day time-frame investors should use extreme caution.

Good morning traders. Risk appetite does not favor the long side as illustrated in the following picture.

There are three primary charts we follow to gauge investor risk appetite. These are the Russell 200 Index (RUT, green line), the Emerging Markets (EEM, magenta line) and Corporate Junk Bonds (JNK, orange line).

We have noted that while the S&P 500 Index (SPX) has continued to trade sideways the past three months, risk appetite has steadily declined as demonstrated by lower highs by RUT, EEM, and JNK.

This is not the type of environment that drives stocks higher. Combining this with bearish daily market internals causes us to maintain our bearish bias into the medium term.

Under The Hood

When we say "under the hood" we mean market internals, ie: what was really happening behind the scenes. ShadowTraders who listen to our daily broadcast every day live on the thinkorswim platform know that all closing figures on the major averages should only be interpreted in the context of market internals.

Weekly - Neutral. Bottoming tail bar on this timeframe which would be construed as bullish but not appearing anywhere near low end of a range. Market still churning in a limited area.

Daily - Neutral. Low volume trade in the middle of a six month range.

Good morning traders. One of the two short trade ideas listed in today's Bulls and Bears section is illustrated below.

Like the broad market, Fleetcor Technologies, Inc. (FLT) has traded sideways for much of 2015. Yesterday the stock closed lower following eight consecutive higher daily closes.

Follow through lower today will trigger a short entry for an anticipated move to the bottom of the price range. This setup offers a reward to risk ratio of better than 4.00 to 1.00.

Seven ShadowTrader Sectors closed higher on Monday while eighteen ended lower. $DJUSCA remained oversold with its sixth consecutive lower close while $DJUSRE stayed overbought with its sixth consecutive higher close. $DJUSRT and $DJUSBK have both closed higher four consecutive days and will trigger an overbought signal today with a higher close. XOI has closed lower four consecutive days and will trigger an oversold signal today with a lower close.
