Take any hundred people at the start of their working careers and follow them for 40 years until they reach retirement age, and here's what you'll find, according to the Social Security Administration:
1 will be wealthy, 4 will be financially secure, 5 will continue to work because they need to, 36 will have already died, and 54 will be broke living off Social Security and help from family. 5% are successful while 95% are unsuccessful. Care to guess which group had financial planning?

Broad Market Outlook
Two days away from the markets looked like some feasty ones and with our old friend the buy stop, it was good to see the group making money while having a fun time (shouts to KMB, MELI and CRM) !
Right now, pretty much everything is working, which is great for us, as we continue to find actionable set up's. It seems recently that our two bread and butter set ups have been buying up through bases and the obvious bull flag.
Scanning some of the major markets, we can see the Mid Caps are having some trouble at the retest of it's prior high, the SPY is giving us a clear as day sign of when to take the foot of the peddle (sub 320), financials and bio's also seem to be losing a bit of steam as that have gotten back to prior pivot highs.
Given the record amount of PnL posts (which is awesome to see!) should give us a little high five sell signal warning. Not a randomly sell good stocks to lock in profits, more of a consistent reminder to have a plan for "when" the stock turns.
So far we are over 3% towards our $5 million a year goal for 2020!
Macro Rotation Outlook
282 stop as the Dow Jones continues toward 30k!
This 320 is the new line in the sand for the S&P 500.
8600 stop as we continue to work toward 10k.
MDY Mid Cap Stocks
Mid caps are losing some steam as we have seen in a few other sectors after they lost steam at the retest.
IWM Small Caps
The magnet continues as the small caps play catch up.

VCR Consumer Discretionary
188 stop in the consumer discretionary sector
Seems the financials are getting a bit weak and losing steam after it poked through the prior high.
94 DCA and a 89 stop in the REIT's
Defensive- sectors that tend to outperforming during sub par market conditions.
VDC Consumer Staples
The run continues after a minor pull back, for now a stop below that 190 area, seems to be the smart play.
IBB Bio Tech

The New Big Picture Set Up
We can see how this EXPO failed the breakout a few months back and after shaking a few people out. It is flagging back under this $71 level that could be a spot to start a feeler position and look to add through $72.
