MTG Market Timing Model –  Sell (as of 12/15/22) due to a break of 20ema in the S&P 500

Our timing model was designed to keep our trades in line with the prevailing market trend, not to call tops or catch bottoms in S&P 500 or Nasdaq Composite.

today’s watchlist along with open and closed positions:

$todays watchlist 

position notes:

  • No trades triggered.


The S&P 500 remains range-bound below all key moving averages with the 20-day EMA and 50-day MA as resistance.  Even if the S&P is to push higher from here, it will be tough to trust any move until there is a big pick-up in buying interest.  

We are also monitoring S&P 400 ETF $MDY for a close above resistance at $450.

The Nasdaq Composite closed off the lows of the week and may see a bounce.  Tough to short stocks within the Nasdaq at current levels.  

$Nasdaq Comp  DAILY

We continue to monitor a handful of setups that are showing relative strength to the broad-based averages.

Below are a few unofficial setups from our internal watchlist. 

After clearing its downtrend line, $SLB is sitting in a tight range above the 8, 20, and 50-day MAs.


$HALO is on week 4 of a flat base pattern after breaking out from a cup with handle pattern in November.  The high of last Friday’s reversal candle can serve as a buy entry for aggressive traders.  This is not an official setup.


$MEDP is another top-rated growth stock on our list.  Last week’s false breakout above the swing high led to another test of the 50-day MA, which held.  Any pullback near the 50-day MA can be bought with small size for aggressive traders.  


$CPRX has pulled back to the range high while holding above the 8-day EMA.  Potentially in play unofficially on a downtrend line break.  


Our game plan is to lay low during the first few days of 2023.  Although we have a few unofficial setups posted above, there is nothing wrong with sitting mostly in cash.    

Unofficial Setups 

  • Longs – watching the charts above as well as $SMCI $HAL $NBIX $PI $CAT $BOX
