Resistance For SPY Continues To Hold

SGS  Market Timer Status:  NEUTRAL 
NEUTRAL as of the close of Friday Aug 23, 2019
SGS is a Long-Term (weeks to months) Timer
Why Market Timing Is A Must

Since its low of early August, SPY has challenged its 50 D-SMA four times, as shown by green arrows on the chart above, but failed to close above it.  For SPY, its 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level coincides with its 50 D-SMA.  Unless SPY manages to trade above its 50 D-SMA and above 294.50 early this week, changes are good that it sells off to test its recent lows in 285 to 282 range.

SGS advanced last week and as the close of Friday remains NEUTRAL.

Support and resistance levels for SPX for this week are shown above. 

My Plan

I'm long (2/3) in SDS. I'm watching SPY, a close above its 50 D-SMA and 61.8% retracement level (294.5) would be my stop-loss trigger.  Should SPY sells off and takes out its recent lows, I would open my third and final long position in SDS.
