Here are two quick charts that might be of interest:

^SPX with Bollinger Bands and Stochastics

^VIX with Bollinger Bands and Stochastics


Note that these stochastics settings do a pretty good job of catching the highs and lows. Also indicates that we are probably in for a reversal and downturn in the SPX this week (unless the dollar totally craps out).

Well, applying this same set of indicators to the $USD is also informative:

US Dollar with Bollinger Bands and Stochastics

Looks like we may have a dollar rebound? Fingers crossed for now.

Thanks Kevin,

Been looking at charts this afternoon .... i have completely revamped my default graph settings for:

5dma
BB(9,2)
Stochastics(9,5,3)
RSI(2)

Thats about all I need to know - and the charts of what I hold or am short all look good right now. I also have a number of, what appears to be, good short candidates based on stochastics readings over 85.

I've noticed that for the Bollinger Bands, both the 9 day and 10 day settings give the same result. I have been going with 10 day as my default lately.

I like the combination of stochastics and Bollinger Bands. If you have not used this variant before try the following

draw Bollinger Oscillator(10,2) line at 90
draw Bollinger Oscillator(10,2) line at -90

This will convert the position of the close relative to the BBs into an oscillator (0 is the median line, 100 the upper BB, -100 the lower). Any time the close is within 10% of the distance to the BB, it might be a good signal in conjunction with the Stochastic(9,5,3) crossover.

Thanks Kevin .... good idea .... my standard screens included the B% and I always keep my eye on that statistic for >1 and <0 stocks. Now with the oscillator I can see it on my graphs. Pretty simple set up .... Stochastics, RSI2 and BB oscillator

Me too. I just averaged in a little further when the DOW hit +130. Added another unit of each of the 4 3x bears I am in right now. With the added shares, I am still down about 3% on average.

Setting a stop loss at 7%. Will not average in any more this week (OpEx).

Bought SDS today around $35.7. May add more later this week depending how the market behaves.
