Having Trouble Picking Winners? Here Is Why: S&P Has Rolling Top

AMEX:SPY   SPDR S&P 500 ETF
132 0 6
This is an extremely difficult market in which you will find winning stocks .
The-S&P 500 (as measured by-SPY) has gone sideways for 18 months.
You have to be very good to select the end of the draw-down periods and go long in the winners.
The rotation into and out of stock groups has been fast and furious. As for-SPY:
I detect a bearish AB=CD harmonic pattern . This, combined with very negative indicators, are warning signs of a break to the down side.
In all fairness to you, I have been expecting a draw-down for six months, yet we continue to move side-ways.
Let's put it this way, your upside gain is 1% to 2%, down-side 10% +. This is not a good risk/ reward ratio.
Here are ONE DOZEN negatives I see in-SPY, and why I feel this is a sell:
1. Sell Fractal in effect.
2. Alligator jaws NOW OPENED in tandem with sell Fractals. Alligator feeding in new down-trend. THIS IS YOUR DIRECTIONAL COMPASS.
3. Chop indicator (under chart) is ENTERING the shaded area.
4. Forward Ichimoku leading span (lower top indicator) is below the zero line. **
5. 34 day moving average (top indicator)-is bearish .
6. Prices are trading into the Ichimoku Cloud . This is a sell signal.
8. Prices are trading below the Ki jun-Sen baseline of the Ichimoku Cloud . This is a sell signal.
9. Prices are trading below the thick red Ichimoku Cloud conversion line. This is a sell signal.
10. The red Ichimoku Cloud conversion line direction is heading lower. This is a sell signal.
11. The Ki jun-Sen baseline of the Ichimoku Cloud direction is heading lower. This is a sell signal.
12. The CHOP ZONE indicator (under chart) is red, indicating a down trend.

** The lower top indicator is a forward projection as follows: For an estimation of possible FORWARD TRENDING I use the Ichimoku Cloud Senkou Span A (Leading Span A): (Conversion Line + Base Line)/2)). This is the midpoint between the Conversion Line and the Base Line. The Leading Span A forms one of the two Cloud boundaries. It is referred to as "Leading" because it is plotted 26 periods in the future and forms the faster Cloud boundary. I then make an oscillator out of this and plot the progress up and down around a “zero line”.
I HAVE THE RESULTS OF THESE CALCULATIONS FOR-SPY IN THE TOP LOWER INDICATOR. IT IS VERY NEGATIVE.


As I write this the-S&P futures are strong, indicating an up day. But don't be fooled.
I feel we have the setup for an-S&P market decline. To be fore-warned is to be fore-armed.

I hope that all of your trades go well. Don.
