POSITIONS: Long Consumer Staples (XLP); Short Industrials (XLI)
I’ve only heard 4 whispers about different flavors of interventions in the last hour. That’s just got to be good for someone, because it sure can’t be for confidence.
No trust; no volume. That’s the market you have to risk manage right now. Equity outflows remain a paramount factor when we get to the top end of either my immediate or intermediate-term range.
Across risk management durations, here are the lines that matter most:
- Intermediate-term TREND resistance = 1365
- Immediate-term TRADE resistance = 1347
- Immediate-term TRADE support = 1319
In other words, keep managing the risk of the range. It’s somewhat predictable. So are the whispers.
Just make sure to have a large cash position for that day when the whispering stops,
