I think you'll do very well with the VIX calls.  RUT is a gamble, but "a lower tide drops all boats" should bring RUT down with the rest tomorrow morning.  GLTY

Down into the close.  Should be a red final print and a gap lower at Wednesday's open.  Charts indicate algo selling tonight into at least tomorrow morning.  HOLDING SHORT.

Flags are breaking (bear flags on equities, bull flag on VIX).  EWT says flags were 62% double zigzag Wave 2s.  But forget about waves.  The charts says that algos are in selling mode and that they will accelerate selling overnight and into tomorrow's cash open.  I'll be HOLDING 100% SHORT overnight.

Rotation. Nothing wrong with movement like this, it moved like this for months and months in the past. It resolves higher, many have 30+ yrs to compound wealth. Stop trying to hit the jackpot in your first 30 minutes @ the casino. Go enjoy the show first.

Market does need to do anything, its really good at taking retail $$ because retail is the weakest $$ out there. What do you think 1000s traders are posting right now on 100s of forums. My word bubble algo, displays word % to me all day....#1 word is "rigged", #2 word is "bubble" guess what the logical trade is for an algo with that data?

Doug continues to offer nothing to the conversation... just criticisms of everyone, though he never takes a stance on the market, because he admitted he doesn't have a clue what it will do.  I am 90% certain that I understand what the charts say for the next 18 hours or so, as I've adjusted my analysis to more closely match algos and not human emotion.  I'm about 90% confident of the coming drop between now and sometime Wednesday morning, and in layman terms, that's "absolutely must drop".

I expect hard and grinding decline now. Trump mania has almost wane! Time for long term shorts on equities and long on yield commodities such as coffee, sugar and cotton (notice on monthly charts how all these commodities become expensive during financial crisis). They compound average Joe's living making it easier for banks to take back all that was temporarily lent to them

What charts are you looking at? Even though I'm inclined at this point to agree with you I think you're overlooking Nasdaq options unloading at the close. Nasdaq futures is currently up .3%.... . See you at the cash close.

Respectfully Beck, we have a pronounced 2-day bear flag in ES, SPX, and SPY... and a 2-day bull flag in VIX.  Combined with other sell signals (and the lunar phase, not to sound like Oshericos!!!), I'm absolutely certain we're about to embark on some sort of drop.  I think it gets started before the close, but the bulk of it will be delayed until tonight or tomorrow.

Alex, thats some funny stuff. VIX gambles long didn't work out very well this time. I don't bother timing VIX long, just wait for a high drama event to short VXX. Im looking at IWM Oct put spread sell the 146 puts for 2.06 buy the 143 puts for .93...trying to figure out the ratio I like 2:1 gives me profit if market grinds higher and profit below 140

DG. Figuring out the spread ratio, yeah, where money is made if you do it properly. OMG, not even funny if you were their members.  Their best vix trader has been making calls on VXX and put on SVXY. These members followed them blindly keeps losing money by playing options on VXX.   Some were smart enough to not play option but have been buying uvxy in the low 30s.  This week their options will be worthless as well.

wow, Alex that is a perfect example of why traders fail 90% of the time, they get caught up in confirmation bias believing in the reputation of other traders. Trades fail all the time, its how a trader manages the risk that matters.

Interesting..... SPX is at 2501.22 but the 200 day SMA is still under 2,500 and going sideways/down. Will the cash close be way above 2501 or way below? I'm not sure! I'm looking at 2,500.23 without NASDAQ options unloading at 3:45... so it'll probably close way up.. . We'll see. I like this real time experiment. Exempt Trump speaking with the PM of Spain in a minute, I don't see anything stopping the market technicals today. RSI is way overbought though. Expect a bit of a pullback tomorrow.... . Nasdaq needs to gain another 20 (6,420) points before the close today- very important tbh. I believe it will. If that happens, both SPX and Nasdaq will be overbought and we'll trade sideways until Friday.

What's your biggest end of year trade... let's hear them.  Markets have steadily been moving in one direction for the majority of this year, definitely set to see some bigger trends shift.  I wanna hear what you people are looking at and when.  Not hourly and 4 hr stuff.  Daily/Weekly chart trend changes that will have multi month moves.  What do ya got, I'm interested.  Where you're looking for reversal price wise and time wise, not exact price to the tick or time down to the day...just rough estimates for bigger shift.  *listens*

I never take any other traders advice or suggestion.  I do my own research and trade based on my own quantifiable risk.  With that said I enjoy hearing other traders views on the overall direction of markets.  It's interesting to me.  So when I ask what're the big trades you're watching and rough estimate where you're looking for change in trend in price/time, that's what I mean.  Simply saying Metals, and then following up with  "gold"...that's not a prediction in the sense I am curious about.  I'm curious about the directional move that is being anticipated.  Thanks.

Sonny, I do spend a lot of time explaining throughout the attacks.  Attacks are normal. Human nature on display, people just hate admitting they don't know squat about the markets and they never like someone like me proving they don't know squat.  Some read and learn, its all good with me. I can fight 1000 of them and be happy that 1 learned something.
