The signal for the Bull & Bear Tracker is now GREEN.   The signal had been RED since July 20, 2018. See Equities article ​“Signal for Bull & Bear Tracker has gone RED”.  The signal switched from RED to GREEN due to the volatility between the US Dollar and Japanese Yen exchange rate decreasing.           

For the period that the signal had been RED the S&P 500 went from 2803.00 when it went became effective on July 20, 2018 at 2:00PM to 2815.15 at the market’s open on August 1, 2018.  During the eleven days the RED signal was in effect the S&P 500 increased by 0.42% .

The SPXS, the vehicle recommended to trade the RED signal went from $24.07 to $23.26, representing a 3.3% decline during the eleven days that the signal was in effect.  Now that the signal is GREEN, the recommended vehicle to trade the signal is the SPXL Direxion Daily S&P 500 Bear 3X ETF (SPXL), a triple leveraged long ETF derivative for the S&P 500.
