The DRV, Exit(s)
Well-calculated stops, (mostly) take care of trade implosion. So, where’s the exit?
The answer is there’s no set answer.
We’ll explain that by using the current plan for DRV-22-04 (not advice, not a recommendation).
First question to determine an exit in this case, is to ask:
“What are the media pundits, and/or ‘experts’ talking about right now?”
Well, that’s easy.
Just like the ‘silver squeeze’ idea that won’t go away (even as SLV continues downward), the ‘Fed pivot‘ is another delusion that keeps holding on.
As parts of the market (like IYR) continue their free-fall, all eyes are on the next Fed meeting; waiting for them to pivot and ‘save us’.
Right around November 1st, or 2nd, seems like it can’t help but be some kind of emotional cathartic set-up.
Unless stopped out ahead of time, the plan, is to plan an exit within that window.
Let’s go to the IYR, 3X Leveraged Inverse fund DRV.
IYR, 3X Inverse, DRV, Daily
At the end of today’s session DRV has posted a downside reversal candle.
The next session will be important.
We either have follow-through to the downside, thus validating the reversal (and exit of the position) or we have some variation of an inside day or new daily high.
If the trading channel remains valid, the compressed chart below shows a potential exit range: DRV 140 – 200.
During the next session(s), if DRV, posts a new daily high (unless stopped), the DRV-22-04, stop will be moved to this session’s low @ 73.86
