When Pigs Fly

SGS  Market Timer Status:  SHORT 
SGS is a Long-Term (weeks to months) Timer
Why Market Timing Is A Must

Since late February, the Federal Reserve has been using all available monetary tools, along with a couple of newly created ones, to soften the financial blow of a total and sudden shutdown of the economy. In a way, the Fed has been busy putting as much foam as possible on the runway to cushion the crash landing of the economy.

At the end of the day, despite what the Fed has done and continues to do, the economy is still crashing, unemployment skyrocketing, and companies going under. So, under these conditions, would indices rally, in a V-shape, to new all-time highs? Yes, but only when pigs fly.

SGS continued to advance higher everyday last week, signaling that a temporary bottom was reached on March 23 for major US indices.  If SGS levels off in the next few trading days, there would be a good chance that indices go sideways for an extended period, possibly a few weeks to a couple of months.

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

My Plan

I closed my positions in SDS & RWM last Tuesday.  Then on Thursday I opened my first of three positions in SDS.  My plan is to add to my short positions sometime this week.
