The X-Files on BMT

This is a journal to follow the Stock Market: SPY. In this journal, I am going to use the theory that the banks and the semiconductors (includes big tech) lead the direction of the market. I am going to chart XLF, the financials ETF and SMH, the semiconductors ETF. I will also include: XLK, big tech. I may look at utilities (income): XLU. Energy: XLE. The main focus is swing trading and trend trading.

This is the chart I will be using (until I improve it) to analyze the market. The daily stochastics is the swing, the weekly stochastics is the trend.

So, if the banks and semiconductors can't hold their recent lows, the SPY can trend down to 125.

XLF is important. JP Morgan's balance sheet is a lie; don't know when the other shoe will drop. But, I look at charts.

XLF needs to hold the 200MA.

Not getting enough data for SMH. But price is far below all 3 MAs.

And the big techs are looking better helped by Apple, trying to get a change of trend.

Always interesting, XLF bounced off the 200MA. Just when you thought it would, it didn't. Break...........

Spyders below 200MA

See if "They" work back above 200 MA to stall the down trend.

Tuesday

"They" engulfed the doji to close above the 200MA. Maybe a small gap on the day chart, let's give them the rest of the day.

Rally


The word on the Street is this is a short covering rally. A "V" bottom, need to confirm with a "W" bottom.

Gap open never filled.

The "Banks" jumped back above the 200MA.
