MACD Divergence show Pressure on the Indexes

With all of the major components like AAPL, MSFT, AMZN down, it must be putting pressure on the indexes that they are a part of & how about Volatility(VXX)? Is is showing any clear upside patterns? What about the short indexes like SPXS & QID? Do we get “confirmation” from these?

SPXS 30 minute MACD divergence 7-23-20

MACD Divergence on the VXX is the Trade

Uncategorized Jun 17, 2020

At 1:45pm eastern on June 12 the 5 minute chart on VXX made its way to the high it had reached 2 3/4 hours earlier, but we were concentrating on the MACD indicator. The MACD had a clear divergence indicating that the price action on VXX shouldn't be at $45 but more like $40 or lower based on the slope of the MACD peaks


As predicted the price dropped to below $40. this powerful move down is often reflected with a reverse MACD divergence up on the SPY. In this instance as the chart below clearly shows, there was not one in the offering. So we went back and looked at the VXX puts for big gains on the near term OTM options.

MACD Divergence shows the Way. It ain't rocket science,

macd macd divergence Apr 16, 2020

So, I'm sure there are many options traders, who are now at home and work, maybe even have a full house of family members. My commitments used to disqualify me from doing intraday options trading, not anymore, now I'm trading on intraday charts looking for MACD divergences and double tops and bottoms like the Options Hunter does. 

I'm no Dale Wheatley, I'm still learning and cautious with my trades but I can tell you for a fact that this strategy works for me, it really does. The daily chart of BA had a strong MACD up that really gave the confirmation of the 5-minute divergence Dale looks for.

He tweeted this yesterday. Those calls really took off. It was on 5 minute bars so we knew it wouldn't last forever. I'd have exited when the price pulled back around 10:45 but that's me being conservative. Could have stayed the course for the real MACD turn down later in the day.

Bullish MACD Divergence on VXX means Markets are Headed Down

macd macd divergence Mar 27, 2020


This is a daily chart with a clearly defined UPSIDE DIVERGENCE on VXX, the Fear Index. The time between the first price bottom to the second one, when the divergence occurred, was approximately one month, from late Jan through late Feb 2020.



That suggested the up move in VXX and down moves in the major markets and component stocks should last approximately 1 month before the MACD begins to stabilize. Around March 18-20, 2020.


The lower time frames on VXX started showing MACD rolling over and some Downside Divergences, the SPY, QQQ, IWM, XLE, SMH, XLF and most major component stocks then began showing  UPSIDE divergences

producing huge returns on OTM calls.
