    I enjoy the rhetoric in this thread. As a finance major these are the things I want to be learning about, but never hear about in school.

    To add to my pain I have 10% of my liquid net worth in effing Puerto Rico Tax Finance bonds which lost 20 points in one day when the asshats at Moodys downgraded them.

    What's your target GA?

    Im looking for 1860, about an 8% correction from the high and I'll begin to start picking away at value. If it gets ugly we'll see <1800 and I'll be buying down to 1750 before I'm 80% long.

    I don't pick targets per se, just watch the market action at key points. 1790 ish or whatever that recent major low was is a key area..... depends also on what the market perceives of the Europe mess, retail mess, commodity implosion and general reality... it could get really ugly, it may just slowly evaporate (I hope so). I was thinking thta bonds, stocks and gold would fall together but it looks like treasuries want to stay up, meh

    Target 1 = 1790-1795 on SP500

    FWIW I have been wrong for the whole year but am now about 85% short and have some teeny longs

    May have been a bit premature. I never like to see strong openings leaving us vulnerable for a pre close sell off. Will be a sign of weakness and more pain to come. Need a strong wash out sell off and some panic before I dive in. Watching closely. About 50% in longs, hesitant to start buying more but shopping list is being put together. List will be more conservative with the interest rate uncertainty still looming.

    I am sitting here watching this $#@!..... I looked at my P/Ls, was up a lot Jan-Mar then started shorting, stopping out, shorting failure tops, stopping out, made more in the last 5 days then I have in the last 2 years combined, just looking to sell ups here... maybe not today... somewhere above 1900 or any failure at 1865/67 where I luckily bought back last night.

    Got out again overnight, no follow through, technicals from recent low suggests one should actually be long here... just can't do it... watch 1943 level SP500 above that we may see new high above 2010... I've been wrong all year and have snatched a 12% gain by luck rather then execution. Sold some more corp bonds yesterday... want to dump rest soon

    Sorry, haven't updated in a while.

    SP500 made a major high at 2072 back in Dec 2014 (basis 3/5 futures) then retested the high to make a marginal new high at 2088 or so (3/15 futures).. basis a 25 point ATR implies we should be short at 2072-25 or 2047 with a stop loss at the old high at 2089 or so.

    This week I have sold all our treasuries and I am dumping all my corporate bonds and small stock positions....

    ie when the $#@!s at JP Morgan release them all to Interactive Brokers.

    The only crap left will be bottom feeding stuff in Russia, Brasil and Colombia but that is less than 1% of our NW. Going to cash and will short any failed bounce from here.

    I actually think the market will head fake and make one more MAJOR high before coming off. I am quite nervy here and edgy.

    Downside is protected at 1975-1960 so the market would need to CRUSH through there on any sell off to imply a correction.

    A lot of stocks getting ridiculous valuations due to the price of oil. I bet on oil not breaking down to the 30's and now that its recovered the stocks are rebounding exponentially. Trying to keep my trading simple as of late. Approx. 30% cash 70% long. Of those long positions 75% are at the mercy of oil prices.
    With oil rebounding today and the market down, the best of those trades may be behind me. S and P has been in a tight range all year. Earnings were meh, so I haven't commited as to what the future holds as of yet, however, I do not see more then a 10% correction in the cards if one happens at all.
