Option Alert for 12/18/2018

THE HINDENBURG SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY SHOWING NO DEATH CROSS

* The 50 day average price is below the 200 day average price
* The market has not declined more than 20% from its high
* Recent volume is within normal levels
* Volatility is at normal levels

THE HINDENBURG SIGNAL FOR TODAY IS OUT

Currently the VIX is above its volatility midpoint. This means we are NOT ok for entering into our hedge position at $19.39. Traders will want to wait for the market to calm down so that they are not buying options that have neen over-juiced and diminish the chance of success.

The VIX is at its upper ranges of 24 now, and so aggressive traders can either bet on a reversal buying ATM VXX puts here or hedge their market exposure by SPY with an out of the money put at 249 through January of 2019.
