When the market fell on Monday, Look at the first chart – how much percentage of S&P 500 stocks fell below their 50 Day SMA? Just minuscule!
the second chart is the ETF FFTY is top 50 growth stocks in the market. It is holding well.
NFLX went up well in high volume on Monday.
Decision : I’ll continue to be in the market and am 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
Tuesday September 11th 2018 around 11:30 am IST around 2:00 am, Sept 12 New York
S&P 500 increased for the first tie in 6 days. the advance decline line A/D line had the first positive reversal – stocks up in higher volume for the first time in 6 days. – 1719 Stocks up in 1.46 Billion volume compared to 1061 stocks down in 1.17 billion.
Number of S&P 500 stocks above their 50 days moving average increased to 65.89 percent. – which is a good positive developer
QLD Volume substandard with 990 K
Over all the market is still in uptread
Decision – I am continuing to participate in QLD
NQ – yesterday it was up and down – i stayed out
Overall a green flag for uptrend this week. But before that the schools are back in US, end of labor day, back to schools for summer. Traders, investors and Institutions are back in full swing..
The news with tariffs and stuff has not really jittered the market. Lets looks at the big S&P 500 weekly chart
what a wonderful uptrend!. Neither the S&P 500 nor NASDAQ nor NDX has broken below the 9 Week Exponential moving average. the above chart is brilliant and beautiful!
the Jan 2018 high of S&P 500 is around 2872 now recently we move 1.5 % above the January high and has very timidly retreated. it closed 2871 yesterday.
FFTY – the top growth stocks in the entire market has put in 1% yesterday.
NASDAQ lost 185 points this last week and is down 2.2 % for the week.
Market sentiment indicator – measuring from Thursday to Wednesday went down just 1 point to 62.3
my only concern is the above chart – For 6 days it went down. yesterday it dropped 3.17 % points but look at the above chart a weekly uptrend from July 2nd 2018!
decision : stay in QLD and NDX but wait on NQ because of the volatility!
Look at chart below – what a wonderful chart – lowest unemployment ever!
