Money Calendar is showing definitively green this week, meaning there are more candidate with a history of bullish over bearish price moves in its history the past 10-years.

We know though, that today’s market environment hasn’t been playing out as consistent with all the concerns of a war going on, high inflation causing our Fed to be hawkish and aggressive with their rate hikes to come.

The bearish patterns that fit our ideal profile have been tough to find because of the past 10-yr bullish run and that has caused us to highlight some short-term call credit spreads that have worked. We will highlight t one more this week.

And we have a bullish pattern on a stock holding up pretty well despite the market slide.
