Well… this STINKS! In a failure to get my homework completed on time, I decided to punt this week’s brilliant commentary until next week.

You know, trudging?
To trudge, the slow, weary,
depressing yet determined walk
of a man who has nothing left in life except the impulse to simply… soldier on.

Trade Trudging

Trade Trudging

Trade Trudging are those weeks where I miss my opportunity to comment on something spiffy. But I still open/close positions that need to be recorded. And I still need to document this week’s Market Sentiments. (I have found the “Market Sentiment” section invaluable when I need to research why great positions went so wrong.)

But I have not been idle. I have been working on next week’s monologue – and it should be a doozy.

This Week’s Market Sentiment

This Market Sentiment Section is typically completed by midday Monday morning. By the time this journal is published, it will be a week old.

(As of 06/28/2021)

In this section, I review five indicators: VIX, Put/Call Ratio, S&P 500, Consumer Sentiment Index, and Geopolitical events that could affect the market’s direction. I will use these indicators to help guide my trading decisions for this week.

Geopolitical Tree-Shakers (GTS):

Geopolitical events can be breaking news, political machinations, Federal Reserve musings, or even Twitter Trends. They are events that can abruptly change the dynamics of the current markets.

GTS is like a lit fuse to a bomb. The fuse can be fast or slow, and the bomb can easily be a dud. But I need to watch this closely as an indicator. The GTS can significantly disrupt all the other indicators at the drop of a hat.

  • Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill was a win but quickly appeared to be a Rope-A-Dope.
  • Feds tiptoe into Tapering – rising interest/inflation rates will be a continued background pressure for some time
  • Cryptocurrency is getting a lot of coverage, but should not drive the Markets.
  • The debate over the $3T “Human Infrastructure” will cause consternation, but I do not think it will go anywhere without another bipartisan effort.
  • Federalizing national election effort failed in the Senate – wouldn’t have past Supreme court Mustard anyway (see U.S. Constitution)

This week’s GTS is pretty much like last week. There is little significant Market-Jarring events on the near horizion.

The high-energy effort of the Marxist left has taken it on the chin these past few weeks. People are waking up to WOKE, and CRT is being rejected as an indoctrination playbook, Congressional efforts to nationalize liberty are being rejected, and most critical, the national liberal media is pivoting from manufacturing hysteria. We still have a long ways to go to cleanse our politics from the Marxist bent, but it’s looking better.

This week’s GTS is remaining mainly static with last week’s. Rising inflation fears will keep stocks from the aggressive growth of the past four years. As a result, I foresee my Spread’s underlying assets will slow its volatility (smaller premiums to collect) and continue to move positively to sideways – depending on how the Feds slide into tapering over this summer.

I feel good about the short-term market prospects, but I should be better prepared for a scarier ride.

I will initially set the DEFCON (Damocles Options Trading Readiness Signal) to 4.

Setting DEFCON to 4

VIX: Broad Market Volatility

The VIX is an emotion-gauge for the general investing population. It is thought to be driven by the Marketeers’ current level of greed or fear. As one-month forward-looking volatility, it is not designed to tell us which direction the market will be going, but more of how fast it can get there.

A VIX of 15% is assumed to be a market at rest. Since the intrinsic nature of the Stock Market is to move up, a VIX close to 15% or below will have an innate tendency to rise.

CBOE Market Volatility Index - 06/28/2021
CBOE Market Volatility Index – 06/28/2021

The 1-month Regression Channel for the VIX showed the Markets appear to be leveling off just above 15%.

The VIX ended last week at 15.6%, down from 20.7% the week before. The 9-Day SMA is below the 50-Day SMA, and the current VIX is below the 9-Day SMA.

These values suggest the Marketeers are looking closely at how inflation may affect their portfolio. But I think that most of the concern has already been factored in.

Even a sideways market is good at times.

Maintaining DEFCON = 4

Put/Call Ratio:

Put Options are frequently used as protections against existing investments falling. When the ratio between Put Options bought versus Call Options bought is above 1, then this is an indicator that the Marketeers are buying insurance to what they may see as declining Markets. Conversely, when the Put/Call Ratio falls below 1, then there is a general sense that the broader Markets will increase, and more investors are buying more than selling.

S&P 500 Put/Call Ratio - as of 06/27/21
S&P 500 Put/Call Ratio – as of 06/27/21

The Put/Call Ratio for the S&P 500 returned back to the near 0.5 level, recovering from the knee-jerk reaction from the Fed Meeting earlier. The 9-Day SMA continues to has peeked above the 0.5 line as anticipated. This indicator is agreeing with the VIX that there is a little concern about how inflation will rob value from stocks. But the magnitude of that concern is not massive.

(Even though the P/C Ratio over the past month averaged above the .5 line, it is still far below the “Head for the Hills” 1.0 line.)

Maintaining DEFCON = 4

Consumer Sentiment Index (CSI):

I’m searching for a new Consumer Sentiment Index (CSI) chart as provided by the University of Michigan.

A low CSI index is a general dissatisfaction with our current management of U.S. economic policies. This dissatisfaction will imply that something has to change. A high satisfaction rating suggests approval of the current policy management and implies market stability.

Consumer Sentiment as of 6/27/2021
Consumer Sentiment as of 6/27/2021

Even though the sentiment levels ticked down in late June, it is still > 3% above May. This late month downward movement was probably caused by the last Fed’s meeting. But since then, most Marketeers have shaken off the bump. With the lack of significant GTS to bum us out, I will assume that the news update will be a nice jump up.

Maintaining DEFCON = 4

Market Indexes:

DOW (DJX) = 34,436 – up 3.4% from 33,290 last week. (4 week deviation: 362 up from 323 last week)
S&P 500 (SPX) = 4,281 – up 2.8% from 4,166 last week. (4 week deviation: 25.67 flat from 25.54 week)

The S&P 500 is a stock market index that tracks the 500 largest companies in the U.S. This index represents about 80% of all the capitalization for the country. The S&P is widely considered the best indicator of how all the U.S. markets are performing.

Daily S&P 500 Index - Four Months Trend (Updated 06/27/2021)
Daily S&P 500 Index – Four Months Trend (Updated 06/27/2021)

Market Thrashing

4-Week Thrashing of DJX = +/- 362 points or 1.0% of the market’s volume is flat from 1.0% last week.
4-Week Thrashing of SPX = +/- 25.57 points or 0.6% of the market’s volume is flat from 0.6% last week.

The Markets had a good last week, but it was primarily giving back what it unjustifiably took the week before. The flat thrashing between the last two weeks suggests that the Marketeers gave back as aggressively as they took.

The 4-month Trend Channel regain little more bulling tilt while the 4-week trajectory remains bullish.

The thrashing was slightly mixed between indexes, with the trajectory slowing moving bullish. The 4-week and 4-month trajectory confirm that we are still bullish on these indexes.

Maintain DEFCON = 4

My sentiment for this coming week:

Of the five indicators:

  • the GTS is confirming already acknowledged concern about rising inflation/interest rates – YAWN
  • the VIX has not moved much in the past four weeks (even with all the inter-week gyration) confirming short-term paranoia but still has a positive outlook – YAWN
  • the P/C Ratio shows a minor concern of a market pullback – YAWN
  • the CSI shows a consumer base getting excited about our economic future – YEAH
  • the Market Movement inching bullish – YEAH

I need to be prepared for the market to move sideways and maybe a little down for the new few weeks. I still have a positive outlook with my Entry Rules.

Trading Readiness Level for this week

DEFCON = 4

This week, I will focus on:

My short-term outlook for my Vertical Bull Put Credit Spreads is positive. I will maintain within my stated budget, but I will change my position strategy and open narrower strike-width spreads, but more of them.

  • Three 10 Strike-Wide spreads this week totaling < $3.0K risk) as the Markets see fit
  • Spread term of 8-weeks or less
  • Probability of OTM > 80%
