Short first time in a long time

Looking at the monthly charts of major indexes, as well as "horsemen"/pillar stocks - all of them struggling to get above TD Resistance line and time is tinning out for move higher.
DJ transports was having difficult time for a while now - not a good sign indeed.
Here is SPX chart - you've this one - you've seen them all.




P.S. Just looked at my last post as of 2/17 and glad that was sitting on my hands due to as I said "Is market about to run out of steam?" - it did indeed - was trading in the very narrow range for 3 months.

Will be keeping an eye on possible Crude Oil long - something is going on with that puppy...

Are equities markets about to run out of steam in the next few weeks?

I am starting to set wide trailing stops on my long stocks positions, also watching possible strong trade in Crude Oil - which direction is too early to tell, but for as long as it is above my magic long term line - it is long.
Otherwise it was quite a boring (trading wise) period after I closed long Natural Gas one month after I called long on Nov 16th 2016 ( net % gain was 25% on position, of course that were contracts, so a tad more indeed) - which I might go long again.

Do not stand under the shoulder of the market "crane"

Call it what you want, but whether it is head and shoulder or less likely rounding top - that /ES bubble is about to pop.

Oil bear is dead?

I would disagree with talking heads and say: “Not yet”
After month long European vacation I am so tired of resting that I need some rest and not even going to post any charts. Take it or leave it. It is land of the free, right?

Is it final shake off of the dollar tree before breakout?

It has been going on for almost a year – dollar has been trading in the range 95-100, I think since Euro, as well as EU, is doomed (never mind Thursday’s jump) – and world’s financial community expects rates to be finally raised in December therefore making sovereign debt repayments much more difficult and will promote inflows into US banks in search for higher than negative European return ….it is that wonderful time again for a new trade – I was on the sidelines since /ES short in September.
