  • From qckisa:

    @jhapril1958 This market may be one mistake away from collapsing 300 points on S&P 500 Index. I tend to think $155/share for 2021 $SPX earnings at 17X, or low 2600s, should be the fundamental basis until the technicals make some sense to risk any funds. This is very uncertain at the moment…

  • From qckisa:

    S&P 500 Index is unlikely to trend higher over 200-day moving average with only 37% of its issues trading over it. It’s 25% of issues on NYSE. Number of issues over 50-dma says this is overbought. 10-day CBOE equity P/C ratio is at 0.56. Blowing off… Oh boy! $SPX $NYA

  • From jedimarkus77:

    I am referencing the $SPX S&P 500 cash market for these observations. I consider the most recent post-COVID Crash market behavior to be of most relevance despite the short amount of time we have had with only 48 trading sessions including the day of the COVID Crash low on 3/23.
