QUESTION: Costine writes “Thank you so much for your amazing charts. What is the best vehicle to buy to short the S&P 500?
Many thanks and regards.”
ANSWER: It is probably way too early to Short… Yes, the Markets are very Over-Bought, and will return again to the Green Lines. But the next good trade should be when the Leaders come down to the Green Line, and then should bounce back up near the Highs (until they FAIL TO MAKE NEW HIGHS).
Good trading, and tell your friends!
