Here’s the quick chart update and the plan for the next immediate price swing:
As I share with members each night, we plan the next swing in price and then play that out – usually in terms of movement “toward” and “away from” key levels – either on a swing (Daily Chart) or intraday basis.
Right now, the price “failed” to pull back (retrace) sufficiently at the beginning of October (notice that the pattern has been pulling back from the upper Bollinger to the lower Bollinger and then moving back again).
This set the stage for an “Alternate Thesis” extended run or powerful short-squeeze.
We indeed got our powerful short-squeeze which propelled the market straight up through all-time highs toward where we are now at 2,550.
What’s the next expected simple plan?
Look back at the red highlights on the chart – reversal candles at the upper Bollinger Band® in the uptrend – and plan for a pullback at least to the rising 20 day EMA again (green).
While that’s certainly the dominant thesis — and should be easy to see — YOU must plan for what you’ll do in the event the market extends the short-squeeze and continues in the lower-probability alternate thesis non-stop bullish swing in which we’re moving currently.
