Have to get short stocks on recovery highs

FOR THURSDAY: (7/26) The EU caved to Trump’s demands and produced another leg up. Now we have ECB and GDP, and the market is often vulnerable a week before FOMC so hard to press longs. Facebook is tanking after hours, pulling NQ sharply lower, and it will spill into the broader market so a top…

Some wild cycles still present

FOR WEDNESDAY: (7/25) Dog days of summer and some wild cycles are still present but we think stocks will hold up another day at least but it may get dicey going into next week’s FOMC meeting, and often stocks will sell off 35-50 points before the announcement. Not sure if the best day for that…
