Options Expiration Blues – SPY in Very Oversold State

What a way to end the week. The two unclosed gaps (4/16 and 4/18) in the NASDAQ 100 (QQQQ) that I have mentioned over the past several weeks are coming back in the picture. Amazingly, even with today’s sharp decline the QQQQ and IWM are still in a neutral state. However, the two major benchmarks, S&P 500 (SPY) and Dow (DIA) have pushed into a very oversold state and certainly a push lower Monday would trigger a signal in the ETF Extremes. We shall see soon enough.

As for the Secotr ETFs I am keeping a close eye on Health Care (XLV). It narrowly escaped a very oversold reading. The RSI (2) is still above 5 which is slightly above where I would like it to be before I feel comfortable sinking any capital into a position.

One thing is for certain, next week should be very interesting.

Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to tell all your friends about our new service. Hey, with a risk free trial what do you have to lose. Sorry, I had to say it.

Anyway, enjoy the weekend!
