Daily Trend and Trade Review


April 12, 2017


Trader Talk

The trend momentum power rating remains a strong 70% uptrend.

The trend remains up – thus holding longs with the bulk of the portfolio is called for - while the Hedge indicator continues to signal to hedge those long positions with a small amount of TZA and TVIX.

The sideways churn as the indexes battle to hold support sets up a potential mini "flash" crash event going into next week.

Since the contrarian and hedge indicators are now moving fast south, such a dive likely offers a great buy the dip opportunity, at least from a shorter-term trading stance.

It remains too early to tell if 2017 will end with a bull or a bear win, though it appears to be a trader’s dream set-up.

For now, holding longs while hedged with a small amount of TZA and TVIX remains the optimal allocation, where we expect to adjust these positions on the next big move stocks make.

Current positioning for the Index/VIX/Hedge Portfolio is 94% QLD, 5% TZA, 1% TVIX. This portfolio is up over 21% in 2017.

The 401K portfolio is in a stock index mutual fund, with QQQ used for tracking purposes. This portfolio is up over 11% in 2017.

Next update after the markets close Thursday.
