I haven’t opened any positions this year yet. “Babysitting” these:

(aapl: 151.89 -0.98%) Apple, short via January puts

(bac: 25.02 -0.56%) Bank of America, option straddle, neutral

(bee: N/A +0%) Strategic Hotels & Resorts, long stock

(lyg: 3.64 -0.27%) Lloyd’s, long stock

(spy: 249.44 +0.02%) S&P 500 SPDR ETF, short via March puts

Yet another “inflection point”. SPY and QQQQ closed at new highs today, so performance-anxious and technical buyers will probably come in. Still, how about a little pullback?

Those huge rising wedges look bearish, but as two potential head-and-shoulders patterns have been negated in the last few months, it can happen again. Patterns are made to be broken, I guess.

Price-MACD diverged some time ago, rising wedge seems to have broken down on increased volume.

$SPX

Similar to the AAPL chart, there’s divergence on the MACD though less significant and a potential rising wedge (bearish reversal pattern).

Markets and tech performance is tied to the U.S. dollar which looks to be reversing to the upside, at least it did today.
