    Matt, are any of the SPY systems going to exit today?

    like I said, nothing new

    like I said, nothing new with the systems, I was hoping the DVDS would have closed out today, it was meeting exit conditions when the market was down. 

    currently we have the DVDS short on the SPY and the Trend/Pullback Long (though we took some profits on the DVDS). And on ES we have the Breakout Long, The Trend/Pullback Long, and the DVDS short so we are more long than short, so quite the combination of both longs and shorts sort of canceling one another out until they start to close out. 

    I actually kind of like when you have both longs and shorts at the same time as hedging one another, kind of neat

    I take it as a sign that the near term direction is not very predictable, but I'm not sure it makes sense to use SPX vehicles to hedge other SPX positions. I would rather try to buy relative strength and short relative weakness.  For instance I took another swing at YANG because China stocks look weak and may face headwinds from the new lockdowns around the country. I did take my first options trade based on BPT signals from the trend/pullback call yesterday, but cashed it in today for a nice 11% gain. Still more inclined to take the long signals than the short ones, but I wish I had acted on the DVDS short more aggressively and promptly a couple of days ago.

    Yes I fully agree with

    Yes I fully agree with you Matt. Firstly I use options on both SPY and ES on both longs and shorts. On the futures it is a little more difficult but what I have done is opened a MES on all the longs and an MNQ on the shorts. That is why I enjoy having all the systems as you are now indicating them.
