CBOE Skew and SPX S&P 500 Daily Charts
The CBOE Skew is elevated again. On the daily basis, the red circles show tops in the stock market so it appears prudent to tread softly on the long side going forward while bringing on some shorts and buying put protection. The 150 level is off the charts. The candlestick chart shows a long and strong MACD line that would like to see another price high but the Skew readings are ominous.
The Skew should be respected since its track record is 100% for identifying the tops as the charts indicate. The Skew signals that the stock market will likely print a top any day forward.
