Super-quick pre-dog-walk post to offer the hope that one of these days crude will actually break this godawful range we’ve been in since December freaking’ First of 20 freakin’ 16. I’m still loaded to the gills with energy shorts, and I think I might get back into ERY today, based partly on the fact that I feel so bad about my DUST debacle. As always, inventory reports roll out tonight and tomorrow morning, so maybe 52.25 will actually get cracked in our lifetimes. Here’s what happening at the moment:
Since Slope Plus factors into this post, I’ll mention this one last time .……..a coupon to Slope Plus for those of you considering it. I am offering a free month for you to try the service by clicking on this link. When you do, type in the coupon code winter2017 and it will give you the first month for free.
Note that this coupon is only going to be working for a few days, so don’t lollygag. Also please note this discount works for ANNUAL subscriptions as well, so you’ll save the most by going for an annual, since you get two months free already.
Besides all the normal extras you get as a Slope Plus subscriber, you’ll also be getting the very best ideas I’ve got (many of which have been doing really well, even in this market, as you’ll see once you have access). I hope you’ll give it a try. On with the regular post now…………

I was looking at SPX doing my weekend charts on Saturday and a new high seemed likely and we saw that this morning. That’s great and decent looking possible daily sell signals are now brewing on both the RSI 14 and RSI 5. Ideally I’d like to see SPX go a bit higher to hit a trendline that I have above in the 2375/6 area, and Stan has a target slightly high at 2381, but I’m wondering whether it’s going to make it. It may be a slow road to get there if we do, and the 5min RSI 14 sell signal that has fixed isn’t encouraging for seeing that today. SPX 60min chart:
Just to give you some perspective as to this insanity……… (more…)
