We had lower lows almost each day of the week on the SPX. However taking into the picture today’s closing pricing action, it seems that points 3 and 4 on the chart below are extremes for a normal distribution week. A test of the area 2920 E-Mini FUTURES is as likely as a re-test of 2840 as of now based on options pricing for net weak.
Of course this is not the best environment for R Option and our current positioning. On the other hand, if the market trade higher next week I could start to appreciate the increase in volatility. Vix Futures printed above 20
Patience and following the model is key. Most humans have trouble focusing in multiple variables at the same time this is why I need to relay on models which I have found that have helped me to take better decisions and increase my trading consistency.
I will be monitoring the market pricing mechanism and international development specially in China. Overnight in Asia, it was interesting to see how Chinese stocks traded higher as US tariffs were almost ready to be implemented.
As if May 29, 2019. R Option Model has very limited exposure to US Equity Markets
