looking at the big picture of weekly chart we see that it is good picture
trading what we see rather than what we think is key. the chart is explaining to us that the price action is good and majority of stocks are above their 50 days SMA in S&P 500.
1 red flags though. QLD daily in H-A price charts – it has a 3rd red volume bar on a green candle stick. but the volume is less than 1 million.
NASDAQ is down 2 % off its all time high. NYSE Advance Decline line A-D line, which is a breath indicator, is slightly below its all time high.
Market sentiment indicator is up for the week 56.9.
Decision : I am still long on QLD and NQ.

Wednesday, September 12th 2018, around 8:30 am Hyderabad, India; and around 11:00 pm Wednesday, September 12th 2018 New York Time
futures before opening did not look nice…NDX opened lower about 40 points! but immediately started going up and up 100+ points at close. That is a good upswing!
NDX solid support and bounce above 9 Week EMA. FFTY – top 50 growth stocks in the market good bounce above 9 Day EMA!.
Accumulation distribution line for NYSE – not as good as yesterday, but 1430 stocks up (majority of stocks) in good volume of 1.56 billion (better volume than yesterday)
most spectacular advance was NDX – low of 7401 and closed around 7507!
only red flag was the breath – IBD calls it ‘curiously soft’ ! Decliners led advancers by 15-to-13 in NASDAQ. Well there is one other red flag – % of S&P 500 stocks above their 50 day SMA declined by not that much to 64.55
One another thing – Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google is 26 % of NASDAQ! Now these stocks are institutional darlings and heavy weight!. How are the institutions treating them ?
decision : I’m staying in QLD
and i am long on NQ 1 Contract
