Was that it?. Did we see the all time high in the markets, Monday?
The short answer of course, it’s not known.
The longer answer is, to go short the market at this point (Monday’s session) was a low risk entry; not advice, not a recommendation.
The inverse chart of the Dow, DXD (above) shows our initial entry. We’re green at the end of the day and have hard stop, GTC, at 13.32.
Tomorrow’s open could be a gap-lower for the Dow, that spends the rest of the session attempting to retrace higher. If so and depending on the behavior of that price action, it may provide an opportunity to add to the position.
Separately, the gold and related GDXJ, JDST had such sharp moves during Monday’s session that JDST was exited completely and yielded a gain of about 12%.
Gold is likely to retrace higher and possibly offer another low risk (short) position in the miners via JDST.
The trading actions are being directed by the market. It would be nice to have a slower more well behaved situation. However, that’s not the case and the trading response matches the market (price action) dictates.
