Short S&P500 Tuesday/Wednesday. Waiting for a higher short entry

FX:SPX500   S&P 500 index of US listed shares

The iPhone company unveils its third-quarter financial figures on Tuesday and investors will be interested to find out how many of the company’s signature iPhones sold during the period. Whatever the Apple             sales numbers will be, unless a miracle happens I expect them to push the market down on Wednesday, as they either disappoint or they create a final top for the week on Tuesday, if they are positive (and then the news gets sold of anyway starting on Wednesday).

I am estimating that when the market opens tomorrow it will first go up higher than Monday and then down, that is where the selling short idea comes in. If not I wait for this to happen Wednesday.

On the earnings front, it will be a busy week as more than 100 companies in the S&P 500 index             report their results. Notable companies on the schedule include Morgan Stanley             ( MS             ), Halliburton             ( HAL             ), International Business Machines ( IBM             ), Apple             ( AAPL             ), Microsoft             ( MSFT             ), Verizon Communications             ( VZ             ), Yahoo! ( YHOO             ) Chipotle Mexican Grill             ( CMG             ), United Technologies             ( UTX             ), Boeing             (BA) Coca-Cola ( KO             ), Qualcomm             ( QCOM             ), General Motors ( GM             ), McDonald's ( MCD             ), Starbucks             ( SBUX             ), Amazon ( AMZN             ), AT&T             (T), Visa (V), Biogen             ( BIIB             ), AbbVie             ( ABBV             ), and VF Corp. ( VFC             ).

Great article! Thank you for sharing it.

"Is it just coincidence that these articles all discuss the same thing at the previous peaks of "bull market" advances? Probably not. The psychology of market advances, and particularly late stage advances, are all built upon the "exuberance" and "short-sightedness" of investors. As "greed" is fed by a seemingly inexorable rise in asset prices, the belief "this time is different" grows."

I am also very happy that the market moved like expected. I only regret not posting the chart earlier at the top, as I was pondering on Monday (even before the price started to fall even more yesterday):
