There’s a bit of a running gag between me and my Tastytrade viewers, because at least once a week I’ll mention a stock in which I have a position and that “I have no idea what they do.” Even, as a chart purist, I don’t care what any company does, folks will always write me and tell me specifically what a given organization does.

Forming The Bull Flag

By -

Apologies for the lack of updates this week. I’ve been reorganising my office which has been time-consuming though very satisfying. The video below is the full premarket video that I do every morning at for subscribers and there are quite a few charts at very interesting stages, most definitely including SPX/ES here.

When I was showing the SPX 15min chart in the video I was saying that ideally there would be an early rally today into the mid-2880s to test bull flag megaphone resistance, before a reversal back down towards bull flag megaphone support, now in the 2858 area. That trendline is declining at about 7.5 handles per day so will likely be in the 2854 area by the end of the session.

For me, my superhero has been my XLU puts. As of yesterday, I was quite distressed about $UTIL but I amplified my position by 50%. We’ll see if that turns out to be a good move, but so far, so good. Here’s the intraday on XLU.
