I thought this was interesting.
SPX 1093.78, which is near 1089 fib retracement number, happens to be the 89 month EMA.
This moving average has been touched only 3 times in the past 21 years.
Support in Aug, 1982
Support in September, 2001
Broken to the downside, June, 2002
After that, the next MA of interest is the 55 month near 1172
Hoping for a spike up into 1089-1094 area, accompanied by low TRIN, low P/C and a VXO near 10 or between 14-15 (both areas are fib cluster targets).
The short setup of our lifetimes, IMO would be the following:
SPX at 1090 area on a spike open.
5 Day TRIN near .80 or lower
10 Day TRIN near .90 or lower
10 Day P/C ratio near .75 or lower
Schaeffers URSA ratio near .30 (currently at .26) or higher
VXO near 10
The payoff on this play is SPX 570. The risk, is minimal. Confirmation is below 1060.
My gameplan, as I still see more up, is long above 1060 to 1090. Caution between 1045-1060. Short below 1045 to 570. Short at 1090 to 570, stop at 1095.
Trading above 1090 completely invalidate's Hyper's scenario, IMO, and sets the stage for a rally of unbelievable proportions. But I wouldn't be caught dead long below 1090 if it gets up there. At this point I think buying the dips to 1090 is still the way to go, as I think the VXO and TRIN and PC ratios have further to fall.
I can run fibs off the 3 major weekly SPX tops and get 570 area. I can also run a fib off of the predicted top of 1090 and get 570. And 560 is the 78.6% retrace of the 1991-2000 boner run rally. (770 was 62% retrace of that rally).
Additionally, if 1553 to 769 is A, then .618 * A = 484. 484 + 570 = 1054. Close enough. 1090 - 484 = 606, so I'll cover at 606 instead of 570. LOL
One last crazy item. Run the infamous SPX head/shoulder neckline from MONTHLY CLOSE TO MONTHLY CLOSE. Current location of that neckline? 1093.
This rally has been, so far, a wedge to test multiyear HS neckline resistance.

It's not that bank failures are bullish, they are an excuse to print money or monetize - therefore inflationary. How do you protect your fiat dollars from the ravages of inflation? Invest yoiur dollars in something...anything - stocks, gold, real estate, whatever. How would someone have done shorting the market in the Weimar Germany hyperinflation? Pretty badly, I would guess. Short bonds or something if you must.

Factory Layoffs Seen Ending, But Future Is Grim
After a bloodletting that cost 2.8 million jobs in just over three years, U.S. factory payrolls are expected to soon start inching higher, economists believe. But many manufacturing jobs may never come back.
Economists agree most of the factory jobs lost during and since the 2001 recession are gone for good and warn that no one should expect a huge rebound in employment even when the layoffs finally come to an end.

There are far more voters using working of for manufacturers using foreign steel than voters working for steel producers. When you add in the collateral damage of a tariff war affecting more voters, vote wise it was a no brainer.
