XIV - Important Update!

XIV has fallen out of the white channel, and is now trading in the orange channel.  XIV tested the orange channel support last week.

Next, a spike up is anticipated for XIV to backtest the white trendline.  The spike up is expected to start gradually this coming week, and intensify as month-end April approaches.

Before:

March 18, 2017 analysis:

XIV has reached it's short term target, and a pullback is due.  XIV has been trading in the white channel, but the slope is too steep, and appears unsustainable.

A pullback to the orange channel with a more gradual slope is likely to occur next.

  1. The orange support was basically hit last week. So it appears XIV is ready to warm up this coming week, and heat up with a spike last week of April.

    1. But, I agree with you that maybe a good Top. I have the next possible bottom on the 2nd May I am waiting until after the 1st week of May to get into XIV I fully expect one hell of a ride with xiv.

  8. That bradely turn will be a very week turning point. It is only ( 19/100 ) power. A little hick up, thats it.

  9. None of my turn dates come from Bradley. They are from a proprietary timing cycle.

    "My feeling is SPX should be down for a few days here, but after 5 weeks of decline the short trade is getting a little crowded.

    I think this month will be characterized by whipsaws, and so an upside surprise and test of 2,400 could be lurking around the corner. That would clear up the crowded short trade..."

  12. SPX testing the turquoise channel on my SPX chart. Breakout to 2,390 to 2,400 SPX imminent.

  13. covered my short on uvxy pre market at 15.20

  14. SPX spike up as expected. The brick wall of resistance is 2,400. It'll probably fall back to 2,350, then spike up again to test close to 2,400.

  15. XIV $73 in a few days, dip to $68, and spike to $75 over the next week or so.

  16. UVXY $14's, pop to $18 and drop to $11's over the next week.

  18. SC, do you think where we are this AM (2360s) on the gap up Monday will had back to 2350 then test 2400?

    1. Very little upside particularly for SPX now at this level. I do think this rally will fizzle and cool off to 2,350. Then there will be another spike up.

  19. I do see another spike up coming but it's a week away at least, and it'll cool off first.

    1. That is the principle behind T's. I used to post equal timing frequently, and it is really interesting.

      None of my dates come from that though. They all come from a timing cycle.

      The problem with this type of market is that highs and lows can be bunched tightly together as we have seen Friday and today. So it's not critical that turns happen on certain days, but it is helpful to have a general estimate of timing.

    2. I 'm thinking uvxy is a buy in the next couple days..maybe end of week.. for 60% move on it..buy at 15ish sell at 23 24? by end of may? thats close to what my timing is saying?

      Delete
  23. it is my belief that we hit 238.29 to 238.46 on spy
    thats when the opportunity will be to buy uvxy just my opinion
