Nobody likes to fall into a trap. Yet investors may soon be falling into two traps that the stock market has potentially set up.

Let’s explore the issue with the help of a chart.

Please click here for an annotated chart of ETF S&P 500 ETF SPY  which represents the S&P 500 Index SPX.  Please note the following:

• The chart shows two potential traps that the stock market has set up and investors are slowly falling into.

• The potential bull trap is characterized by the breakout of stock prices above the green line shown on the chart.

• The potential bear trap is shown by stock prices falling below the orange line shown on the chart.

• Only one of these two traps will become valid.

• There is no way to know with 100% certainty which trap will become valid.

• Under these circumstances, investors ought to pay attention to Arora’s Third Law of Investing and Trading: Making investing and trading decisions based on probabilities is the only realistic and profitable approach.

Three probabilities

In our analysis at the Arora Report, the following are the probabilities:

• Bull trap coming true: 30%

• Bear trap coming true: 45%

• Whipsaws: 25%

The highest probability is the bears getting trapped. In plain English, this means there is a 45% probability of the market going higher.
