  • Potential Dollar Rally Threatens Equities And Commodities [View article]
    Oct 2011 to April 2012 stocks up, dollar volatile and then slightly down. April 2012 onwards dollar up and you know what equities did.

    I stated short equities when dollar index breaks resistance of 83.56. Point out where in the article I said go long on equities when the dollar index breaches 83.56. Honesty is needed to have a fact based discussion

    You are trying very hard to stick to your error despite what the charts are telling you. You take one time frame between October 2011 to April when the dollar was down slightly after wiggling around to prove your point, which it does not. You ignore all the other price action since march 2008 that proves the inverse relationship between equities and the dollar.

    This is my last response to you, since you don't favor an honest discussion of facts.

    eagle1003 You ignore facts even when shown on a chart comparing the US dollar ETF UUP to the S&P 500 index. Here it is in case you missed it in the earlier post: http://bit.ly/Mhf8yZ

    You say really scary stuff: "I would not be worrying about the dollar being a negative factor for the markets until the dollar index is well over 100."

    The last time the dollar index traded at that level was in march 2003. The S&P 500 was at the 850 level then. If you are selling at that level I'll be a willing buyer

    Correlations change as the markets change and they sometimes have a time lag. To prove my point here is the link to the monthly chart of UUP and S&P 500 since early 2008 when the 2007 correction turned into a bear market. http://bit.ly/Mhf8yZ

  • Stock Traders: Switch Bias To Neutral Or Bearish Mode [View article]
    It's the strong stocks on NASDAQ that's keeping the index up. But when the broad market falls the strong stocks either go flat or decline slightly, which does not provide much help to bulls

    Geoffrey....on the NASDAQ the pullback will likely come down to the gap I mentioned on the charts. But the support will really me controlled by the weakest index, just like resistance is controlled by the strongest. The weakest is the Russell 2000 among the four broad market indices--Dow, S&P 500 and NASDAQ. Support for the Russell is not too far away. It at 78.45 to 79.51 on IWM the Russell 2000 ETF.

  • Time For Equity Bulls To Take A Breather As Major Indexes Hit Supply Zones [View article]
    Thank you Djohnsonhot. I think technical and fundamentals should go hand in hand.

    About Fibs: You can increase odds when Fibs align with support or resistance in price, or a moving average.

    I can see that you really like your EMAs. I think you should check out the 50 SMA too. Also throw a Fib from the September 2012 high to the November 12 low and see where we are.

    As a swing trader I identify potential turning points and enter and exit the market a few times a year.

    You went against the trend (buying in a bear market) and got burned. Think of the money you would have made if you had identified the trend correctly and been short.
    Yes Contango is a problem but a 50% return so far in less than a year is great contango or not. They most important thing that should matter to any investor is whether an investment can make money after taking into account the risks. For a small investor looking for a pure natural gas play there are not may options out there. Contango will be a problem for ETFs using futures.

    I had predicted the fall when SPY was at 143 and it went all the way down to 134 before bouncing.
