MTG Market Timing Model – BUY  (S&P 500 and Nasdaq Comp are trading above the rising 20-day EMA)

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.

position notes:

  • Per intraday alert, sold $NVDA for a small loss.


The S&P 500 pushed above the two-day high and set a new all-time closing high on Friday. With the Nasdaq Composite and Nasdaq 100 barely hanging on to the 20-day EMA, the S&P is the leading index. However, leadership within the S&P 500 is narrow, with $AAPL, $MSFT, $ORCL, and $CSCO doing most of the heavy lifting.

S&P 500 daily

The timing model remains on a buy signal with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite both above the 20-day EMA but growth stocks are not in favor right now. Growth ETFs $IWP and $FFTY are relatively weak and trading below the 50-day MA ($IWP) and 200-day MA ($FFTY).

The model portfolio is down to one open position in $TSLA after selling $NVDA late Friday afternoon due to the lack of buying interest around the 20-day EMA for the second day in a row. Another close below the 20-day EMA could lead to a rollover and test of the 50-day MA.

$TSLA bounced off the 50-day MA again.

Our short-term game plan is to lay low and wait for better conditions and setups to emerge as this is a tough market to put much money to work.

Unofficial Setups – For experienced traders only, no guidance is given for these setups.
