Market On Open, Friday 24 May

by Alex King

If you are an Inner Circle member here, you may have caught a very nice short-term short opportunity we posted in chat and in trade disclosures yesterday. An opportunity to hedge longs and then take short profits in the S&P500 and the Nasdaq-100 and also in the levered semiconductor sector pairing of SOXL / SOXS.

Equities are up a little in pre-market right now; we’ll see if that holds. Personally I am now un-hedged long in the S&P500 and the Nasdaq, may hedge into the long weekend, haven’t decided yet. As always, Inner Circle members will get a trade disclosure alert before any such trades are placed.

If you’d like to become an Inner Circle member, either as a step up from free or from Market Insight here, you can use the links below; any problems, reach out using this contact form and we’ll get right back to you.

Anyway, back to the task at hand. As always in these notes, today we cover all four primary US equity indices (the S&P500, Nasdaq-100, Dow Jones-30 and Russell 2000); bonds (TLT), volatility (the Vix), oil (USO) and sector-specific ETFs. We provide long- and short-term insight daily and we include coverage of leveraged ETFs which - if you have gotten sharp at the rotation and hedging methods we teach - can be used to very good effect. All of this features daily in the pay version of this newsletter.
