Weekly S&P 500 Catalysts And Direction

See Full Report
We are neutral this week waiting for a better setup to get short.
Although negative catalysts build the bounce off the recent lows needs to work itself out.
We see the market capped on the upside and the risk/reward is not good for buying.
That said, because of the market momentum, shorting is not clear either.
(Picture: To start the week Elazar's been benched. We expect to get some "at bats" later in the week or next week.)
Since we've been giving our weekly market direction our calls are up 2.4% in 7 weeks. Here's the results.

We called for downside into and following Brexit but the market took a big bounce off the Monday low. There was follow through all week last week.
Our best guess this week
We think the market could have an upward bias this week early on.
The market likely needs to work out some buying follow through. What we mean is as long as the market (NYSEARCA:SPY) can stay around 208-210 or even higher, we think that will set up for a good short the following week. Then we'd have fundamentals and technicals aligned.
