SPY Gap – Yet to Close

The gap from 7/30 has yet to close, so again not much has changed with my short-term outlook. I still think the market will decline to close the gap before any meaningful advance occurs.

Also, The Iron Condor discussion that I have promised over the past few days is currently in the works. I hope it will be worth the wait. Until then I will be sitting back and waiting until another extreme is reached.
