Today you are receiving a peak into my thoughts for the coming Fed Meeting announcement on interest rates that is coming Friday Sept. 17th. Expect a wild and crazy week. My expectations for the Fed and the markets are below.
On Friday 9/11 I sent out a morning update where I said the following; “Dollar up a little and gold down about $5 with JNUG down at the open about 17 cents. Will keep a close eye and a stop if we get a continuation and play another day at this point. The 52 week low would be my signal to keep a hard stop no matter what at 6.48. Market makers like to take out 52 week lows and reverse direction so I have to be leary of this as well and be willing to jump back in. Obviously, since we have not hit green on the weekly, this is an aggressive play where you can’t always catch a break, especially with all this dang volatility.”
I said Thursday that “All of the ETFs that were green on the weekly have turned red now giving us once again an indication that the market is turning higher.” It gave us a scare that could have had some hesitate getting in and my morning update said that we were down. But a higher high could have been played in the one’s I mentioned; TNA, SPXL, UPRO, TQQQ, UDOW, SSO and FAS. I still would have gone home flat over the weekend.
REPEAT: UVXY on a higher high for scalps I will play all week long before Fed meeting. Most of the action/profit will be had M-W I think with Thursday as a slow trading day with “wait and see” traders preparing for the Fed. This is the week market makers work their magic and you should be aware of it as we have been through it before.
YINN, RUSL and EDC all opened lower and were not a play except for the higher high rule.
TBT didn’t trigger at 45.99 as it opened lower than 45.86. TLT would have been difficult to play with this up/down volatility but maybe this week you can trade it if it goes over 122.08.
UWTI might have got the aggressive trader a scalp in the morning but then it reversed. The conservative trader never saw their mark hit. DWTI is peaking my interest over 119.55 (conservative) or a higher high if it opens lower (aggressive). We have no green signal on either except monthly for DWTI which is still where I lean medium term.
ERX you might have got a small scalp in the morning of 30 cents before it fell. ERY is in-between high and low and would only play the higher high of the two again.
UGAZ was a buy at the open as it was higher than 8.24 opening at 8.39. It moved as high as 8.59 so not much of a move, closing at 8.35. If you didn’t scalp you should have went home flat. No signals on DGAZ or UGAZ yet. Leaning towards UGAZ of the two, but I prefer better plays as we are in-between prices for both.
Gold see above. Look to dollar as key for micro trading. I lean short term bullish but will take my profit quickly if I see the whipsaw I expect everywhere.
NOTE: Fed meeting Thursday and Friday 9/16 – 9/17 – Been looking forward to this for a long time as the Fed true colors will come through. My suggestion this week is to be lighter with share purchases and quicker with scalps only. There is ZERO plays at present except for monthly’s on some which don’t mean anything to me at present. Friday trading should be for experienced traders only. I wouldn’t guess what the Fed will do, but I will share what I “think” they will do. The Fed has to maintain credibility above all else and I think will raise rates 1/4 point. Simple as that.
