The S+P Freight Train (SPY, GDXJ)

I know, I know.  Never stand in front of a freight train.  You’re right.  And being short two S&P 500 contracts is, well, wrong! This first chart is the SP-500 daily.

By the way, the sentiment data from Investor’s Intelligence is just in and it shows that the bullish % has backed off a couple % to 55.6%.  All in all, I continue to believe the stock market is in for a dousy of a correction, but probably not until the True Strength Index (TSI) indicator says it’s time.  Money Flow is trying to stage a comeback and we’ll see how long that lasts.

Another look at the freight train, this time from the vantage point of the /ES continuous SP-500 contract.  I think it is completely fair to say that I entirely miscalculated my timing on taking a short position.  Oh boy, and it is costing me, too.  LOL  Anyway, there appears to be enough momentum in progress that barring some engineer screaming on the brakes, this thing could float along, drifting higher for a couple weeks.  Darn it.

And finally, this is a 60 minute chart of the SPDRs S&P 500 Trust Series ETF (NYSE:SPY).  Thinking optimistically, as the Money Flow Index (MFI) indicator has already begun to roll over, and the True Strength Index (TSI) indicator is on an impossibly steep trajectory, I am thinking later today we may see some breakdown in price and that just might be my opportunity to step off the train track.
Oh, before I forget.  I did buy some shares of Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (NYSE:GDXJ) at $40.01.  I think this is the first time I have bought this ETF – surprising, huh?
