Sizeable correction coming?

  1. I mainly trade futures intraday and have some things that I look at that are very, very consistent -- I have never tried these strategies on anything longer than a day but I'm going to give it a shot. If things work over the long term like they do intraday, we're in for one nasty correction.

    I am currently short the SPY's and am looking for a large correction to come within the next few months.
  2. I do know one ET member who has been mentioning this for a while, but can't remember their name.
  3. ha. a little vague. define large. under 10k? few months? we are coming up on summer a pullback would not be a surprise.
    i am not disagreeing with you but you are leaving yourself a lot of room to backpedal.
  4. I disagree. The market is too complacent for any significant correction to come.
  5. I'm being vague because this is the first time I've tested this strategy on a longer time frame so I have no idea how it will act but lets say I think we'll test the October lows?
  6. good luck
  7. need plenty of luck for es to go back to 1200..

    dream on
  8. The 4-year cycle bottomed out in late-2002. Ideally, it'll do the same this year. Hopefully, there'll be a well-defined bottoming in September or October. That's when the market has had its biggest meltdowns. Start keeping an eye on the far-out-of-the-money index puts in August. We can compare our forecasts and profits at that time.
  9. bgp

  10. Here's hoping today's selloff is only the beginning ;)
