Turning Cautiously Bullish

SP:SPX   S&P 500 Index

As we wrote in our trading plans published yesterday, Mon. 08/28: "If we get a daily close above 4415 today then our models will flip to a moderately bullish bias. If not, they will continue to sport their bearish bias". We got this confirmation with yesterday's close, and our models are turning cautiously bullish for today.

There are mixed signals about the viability of this push up, hence the cautiousness. With the economic released coming in rest of the week, with the culmination into the NFP Friday, there is a risk of volatile spikes in either direction. If you are entering into a positional trade, make sure you have enough bandwidth to sustain wide swings.

Aggressive, Intraday Trading Plans:

For today, our aggressive intraday models indicate going long on a break above 4486, 4476, 4463, or 4454 with a 9-point trailing stop, and going short on a break below 4483, 4473, 4460, 4450, or 4437 with a 9-point trailing stop. 

Models indicate explicit short exits on a break above 4443. Models also indicate a break-even hard stop once a trade gets into a 4-point profit level. Models indicate taking these signals from 11:46am EST or later.

By definition the intraday models do not hold any positions overnight - the models exit any open position at the close of the last bar (3:59pm bar or 4:00pm bar, depending on your platform's bar timing convention).

To avoid getting whipsawed, use at least a 5-minute closing or a higher time frame (a 1-minute if you know what you are doing) - depending on your risk tolerance and trading style - to determine the signals.
