Assessing Market Action With Indicators And History

Low SPY Volume & Low VIX on Options Expiration
I was on vacation last week with limited access to the internet. While subscribers still got the nightly Subscriber Letter, I was unable to produce blogs. I’m back now and will have some edges to share this week. This is one study I found interesting from Sunday night’s Subscriber Letter.

Pretty much everything I’m looking at short-term is suggesting a pullback. Longer-term that is not the case.
In this blog I will be examining market action and quantifying my findings. Using sentiment, breadth, price and volume indicators - both standard and customized - I will try and uncover short-term edges which could be taken advantage of by market participants. I will frequently add opinion to these studies and may sometimes post opinions without quantifiable research behind them.
