Hi everyone and welcome to the Yellow Tunnel community, an aggressive short-term trading service dedicated to all classes of traders seeking to elevate their trading skills, market awareness, and trading profits.
It doesn’t take much more than daily one-thousand-point swings in the Dow to send a clear message to traders that they best have a phenomenal trading system to depend on in which to make the most of a highly uncertain trading landscape. Bond yields traded above 3.05%, the highest level seen since November 2018. It is a real disappointment for the bulls to see such a strong effort to regain investor sentiment only to have cold water poured on their short-term spike.
Grant it much of the rally was likely short-covering and program trading related buying, but clearly, Thursday’s sell-off validated the notion that selling into strength remains the pattern of choice until data on inflation shows a definite flattening out to where the Fed can curtail what looks to be two more half-point rate hikes.
To this point, I can’t emphasize how vital it is for blog readers and members of the Yellow Tunnel community to keep referring to our Live Trading Room so as to maintain a close tie of how our AI platform is navigating us in and out of select trades. It’s FREE and I want highly encourage everyone to sign up to the Live Trading Room and keep checking in throughout the trading day.
Every Monday and Wednesday I highlight our best strategies and potential trading setups via the DISCORD server. It’s the future of bringing together a trading community’s total services, educational products, live chat venues, support, news, how-to tutorials, webinars, live-trading demonstrations, and tons of market analysis. It is incredibly interactive and full of crucial and timely information. Just go to:
As for the stock market, the month of May is hardly delivering the bullish flowers following the April showers. This week’s post-FOMC massive rally followed by an even bigger Thursday sell-off sent a very stark message to traders that the Fed remains squarely behind the curve.
The bond vigilantes made this known after showing little conviction one way or another after the Fed raise the Fed Funds rate by 50 basis points, a measure most widely expected by the Street. But this measure came shy of what Wall Street really wanted, a 75-basis point hike to help narrow the gap between hyperinflation and where the credit markets are trading.
Poor economic data was to blame for the sharp reversal lower. It was reported that quarter-over-quarter productivity fell by -7.5% indicating rising wages and falling output that are a direct threat to corporate profit margins. It was one of the worst productivity reports on record going back to 1947 that incited the broad selling pressure that left almost nowhere to hide other than being short the market.
CURRENT TRADING LANDSCAPE
Traders should not be fooled by violent bear market rallies, such as what we saw on Thursday. Investor sentiment hasn’t been this bearish since March 2009 during what was a complete set of different circumstances. Back then the Fed opened the spigot of fiscal stimulus and the market rebounded. This time around, the market is correcting while the Fed is set to raise short-term rates for the next three months.
As of Thursday’s close, the $SPY closed lower 3.5%, at $413, below the 50 DMA and the 200 DMA. The value/reflationary ($VTV) closed lower 2.1%, at $142, right at the 50 DMA. The technology sector ($QQQ) closed lower 5.0%%, at $313, below the 50 DMA and the 200 DMA.
The $DXY closed higher, near the $103.6 level, approaching the March 2020 high. The $TLT closed lower by 2.7%, at $115, and below the July 2019 lows. The ten-year yield closed higher at 3.06%. The $VIX closed higher, at the lower 30 levels, above the historical average.
The $SPY short-term support level is at $420 followed by $410. The SPY overhead resistance is at $435 and then $441.
The market correction started earlier than I anticipated. At this point, it is just a matter of time for the $SPY to break below the February lows.
I would be a seller of any rallies in the market and have a BEARISH portfolio at this time.
I do not expect the $SPY to post new all-time highs in the first half of this year. There is a high probability that the $SPY main long-term support at $415 will not hold in the next 2-6 weeks.
"BUY" signal based on the Aggressive Power Trader Portfolio for tomorrow is at the $416 level using SPY and the "SELL" signal is at $430 for short-term traders.
If you are trading options consider selling premium with July and August expiration dates.
Based on our models, the market (SPY) will trade in the range between $415 and $470 for the next 2-4 weeks.
NEW EARNINGS POWER TRADER SERVICE
We recently launched our new Earnings Power Trader service that we at Yellow Tunnel are very excited about. Each week, our expert traders use our AI Tools to provide the Top Bullish and Bearish Stocks, each with an Entry Price, Target Profit, and Stop Loss.
This new service is special because it offers real-time alerts via SMS and access to Vlad's live positions and orders. When I put together this system, I wanted to be in the fight with other investors. That’s why I don’t play on your emotions to sell newsletters - I put my money where my mouth is.
Every trade recommendation that I make using this system – comes straight from the list of trade recommendations I use myself.
Not only that but every trade I make is logged in detail for you to review at any time. You can see my entire trading history, updated LIVE so that you can see, learn from, and even copy my trading strategy.
Signals have historically averaged over 85% accuracy in my live trading since inception. Sometimes we hold position 2-5 days by using options (selling OTM Calls and Puts spread) and targeting 1% target gain and 1% stop loss using stock price. The green color should be interpreted as a bullish signal and the red as a bearish signal.
