Trading Plans for THU. 09/14 - PPI and Initial Jobless Claims

SP:SPX   S&P 500 Index

As of the latest trading plans we published yesterday, Wed. 09/13: "Our models indicate bearish bias for positional trades while the index is below 4470 on a daily close basis. The index has to close above 4507 for our models to abandon the bearish bias".

Just like the CPI numbers yesterday, the PPI numbers and the Initial Jobless Claims this morning came in a way that leaves room for subjective interpretations of being pro-bulls or pro-bears. The pre-session price action following the PPI and Jobless claims numbers this morning prompted our models to update their bias from bearish to neutral/indeterminate. Models continue to indicate that the index has to close above 4507 on a daily close basis to flip to a bullish bias. Between 4460 and 4507, models indicate a neutral/indeterminate bias.

Aggressive, Intraday Trading Plans:

For today, our aggressive intraday models indicate going long on a break above 4487, 4471, or 4450 with a 9-point trailing stop, and going short on a break below 4484, 4467, 4456, or 4448 with a 9-point trailing stop. 

Models indicate explicit short exits on a break above 4449. Models also indicate a break-even hard stop once a trade gets into a 4-point profit level. Models indicate taking these signals from 09:31am 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.
