After a dip during the week, markets attempted a rebound on Friday. In the 3x ETF service we shorted the market in advance of the big drop, seeing huge moves in our favor in TZA and DRV which we took profits on of 12-20% each. In the SRP Stock Trading service we added two new positions late in the week, both moving up sharply, and also took profits on DRV ETF after being high in cash going into Monday last week. In the Futures service we once again hit for a 50 point profit trade shorting the ES contract. Tipping Point Stocks long term research service put out a new report and already up sharpy by end of day Friday.

General Market Summary: Updated Banister Market and Elliott Wave Views on SP 500
SP 500 and Other Index commentary:
Last weeks comments repeated:
“We also have likely a few million new day traders and traders joining the fold since the market crash and since Covid-19 put people out of work or laid off for now. Charles Schwab noted 600,000 new accounts opened in one month alone for example. I think many of these newly active traders are pushing tech and medical tech to parabolic popcorn popping like movements. This action is likely not sustainable and this behavior comes near tops typically. However, we may get a parabolic blow off in the NASDAQ index (QQQ ETF) ahead before a larger pullback.”
Just to update those comments on 5/17 Report:
We did get a pullback this past week and my services shorted the ES contract profitably, also took positions ahead of the drop in TZA Bear ETF (Small Caps) and Real Estate with DRV ETF. We booked big gains into the decline. Was that the end of the correction?
The SP 500 had an ABC Flat double bottom at 2761 area on the ES. The NYSE had an ABC Zig Zag a bit deeper retracement. The NASDAQ a fairly light retracement as money continues to chase Tech and Medical Tech names.
We could still go lower across the board as the shallow retracement on the SP 500 which I cover the most seems to be not quite enough for an ABC Wave 2 in my opinion. Time will tell… and we will trade accordingly.
Danny Daytrader running wild… the Popcorn Market
Note the massive increase in trading volumes up 300% over same period in 2019 (April) as the “Danny Daytrader” market sees massive influx of new online trading accounts and zero commission trading ramp. This is causing those crazy one day 20, 30, 40, 50 , 80% moves in individual stocks. At some point this ends badly though, because its never this easy… A perfect storm of Robin Hood forcing the brokerages to go to zero commissions, coupled with lots of people at home trading stocks in their kitchen due to Covid-19 shutdowns.
Trading Activity Chart: Top line is SP 500, Bottom “HOCKEY STICK” move is daily active trading volume spike!
Bullish DUMB MONEY running wild. We have the small retail traders making historically bullish bets on the markets as we have moved higher, again another warning sign of one more leg down yet.
Small Trade Bullish Options Contracts Chart:
Bottom line is we had a nice correction this past week as I had projected was likely. Bullish Dumb Money, Put to Call ratios, and a light SP 500 correction relative to the 5 waves up off March 23 lows has me still in the watch for deeper pullback mode between now and Mid June. NYSE has to surge up shortly or we could work lower across the indices.
The NYSE has completed an ABC correction after a 5 wave move which MAY qualify as a correction low this past week. Must surge as I said above.
Surge in day trading has me cautious, reminds me of 1999…. lets make hay while the sun shines though
However, the SP 500 correction is shallow as well as the DOW and NASDAQ so we will see if we get more pullback into Mid-June. I’m still thinking we may see 2660’s before this is a valid ABC Pullback in the SP 500.
NYSE CHART: ABC MAY have completed, not sure yet… needs to surge quickly or we continue to work our way lower yet.
SP 500 Chart: 5 week base pattern in a 200 point range (Held up by AAPL, NFLX etc)
Put to Call Ratio still bearish on a contrarian basis
NASDAQ NASI indicator back up to normal levels (Getting tired?)
Other Indicators and or Charts:
Advisor’s start turning more bullish: (Contrarian signal, but still room to move a little higher)
Advisors are now 47% Bulls and 26% Bears. (Last week 48 Bulls and 27 Bears). At the bottom or near bottom after the first bounce we were around 41% Bears and 30% Bulls, this has now reversed and typical near the final leg of a rally up off lows.
