    It's Thursday's - General Market - Mid-Week Assessment - March 27th.

    My logo for Over 50 Years is: "Investing Wisely."

    I believe there are always many, many (too many!) Road - Signs that more often than not - offer you - Very Inaccurate Information about the direction of the Stock Market. They seem to come from all sources (i.e.) Wall Street, Financial Media, Blogs and Bloggers and unfortunately many other unreliable sources.

    Please Scroll Down for this Week's Market Update

    Accurately Forecasting any major Indice, (Dow - 30 / S&P 500 / Nasdaq, Etc.) Index or any Security for me is a daily routine that I have maintained for well over 50 years.

    My General Market Forecasts are published in SeekingAlpha.com on: Tuesday / Thursday / Saturday / Sunday.

    You might want to read my articles and their archive articles on: (AAPL), (GE), (GOOG), (AMZN), (CSCO), (GLD), (MSFT), (SLV), (T), (XOM).

    My General Market Updates and Forecasts are offered every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday here in SA. I hope you will become a regular follower.

    Perhaps you will permit me to assist you with guidance and direction in improving your portfolio's future "Probabilities for Profit."

    ( Yes, I am seeking new asset management Clients ).

    I invite you to ask me questions about my Methodology ( just click) of "Investing Wisely" via my Email addresses below.

    The General U.S. Stock Market - - Updated

    Clearly the General Market remains Bullish and has making New Highs. That is what it will likely continue doing just for a just short while longer.

    At this time I am holding a number of - Select Companies and ETFs that continue to ascend. I am increasing my Cash Holdings as it appears to be prudent to do so. My forward focus is on - - the on going and well over-due Bullish - Topping - that is going on and has been going on "INTERNALLY" in the Marketplace for several months.

    A new Bearish Inflection Point or if you prefer a new / meaningful Bearish Cycle and perhaps another monster Bear Market is definitely in the making. I hope you will not be caught Holding your Companies and ETFs when you would have preferred (in hind-sight) to have been Holding Cash. I remind you that "Greed" is an expensive word.

    I maintain very accurate Primary Fundamental - Valuation and supportive Technical - Analysis Indicators for the Short ( 30 days to 60 days ) and Intermediate - Term ( 60 days to 4 months ). My Secondary Indicators I use are telling a Bearish story that is never seen or talked about with or to the investing public. Secondary Indicators are always Near & Short - Term. They are the most accurate and valuable and must be a leading part of your analytics.

    Having just these two time-frames handled and under control through my Forecasting the - - Long and Very Long - Term Cycles of the General Market - - simple fall into place. (This statement is also quite applicable to Sectors / Industry Groups / Commodities / Companies and ETFs). (Please re-read this paragraph for complete clarity).

    General Market - - Forecasted w/ Current Opinions

    For months, there has been very little convincing evidence (Economically or Fundamentally) that the current Primary (Bull Market) Rally and certainly future Secondary Rallies will be sustained. a) However, the Market continues to crank our New Highs; b) However, the U.S. Government and Wall Street keep "pumping sunshine" (cheap money and their other divisive ways of deceiving the people that voted for and pay their bills) and that will continue to lead you into severe disappointment, portfolio losses or worse in the coming years. These are the Facts and IF YOU WANT TO BE a Profitable Investor IT - Mandates that - - You Follow the FACTS !

    I do have two "Howevers - and - Exceptions." - - Built into my Methodology of "Investing Wisely." The first are my hundreds of Forecasts; and the second is that they Work !

    I use three words that I would like to Share:

    * The - Very Near-Term: The Market should be up over the next few days. . .

    * The - Bias: The Bias is DOWN and is more sensitive to a Trend. . .

    * The - Trend: The Trend is UP and will take much time to turn negative. Trends are often poorly measured by Financial Analysts are often misleading. So when a Trend truly becomes a Trend it is a valuable tool. My first two words above help ( big time) to do much better than to follow a Trend.

    For the Near-Term: ( one day to thirty days ) My recent Forecast for a mini Pull-Back is terminating. A Forecasted Mini Rally is in the making. My Forecast for the coming days perhaps a bit loner is for a Rally. This Rally will be critical to monitor and I have the tools to do just that.

    As usual the coming days and perhaps a couple / few weeks will be critical if you intend to begin "Investing Wisely" with me.

    For the Short-Term: ( one month to three months ) Topping is WAY over-due but, I suggest the coming few weeks / couple of months of trading will be telling the Story Best - it will be a Compelling Story. Stay tuned.

    Remember, - EVERY - Bullish Cycle is followed by a Bearish Cycle, be it Near-Term - or - Short-Term - or - Long-Term - or - Very Long-Term. I hope you have such a perspective.

    I update and publish each Saturday morning a Chart in StockCharts - PublicList a proprietary General Market Update that provides me prospective between the three Indices that control the Marketplace. This is the seldom used formula that can make you consistent profits if you will follow them both individually and collectively. They are: a) Primary Indices ( Dow 30 Industrials / NY & Nasdaq Composite, Etc. ) ;b) My proprietary Inflection Point Count which is very - broad based ;c) The Commodity Index.

    Understand that this graphic / chart presents both Primary Cycles and Secondary Cycles in the stock market. I seldom participate (Buy / Sell or Short / Cover ) in Secondary Cycles.

    You can view this excellent Indicator at:http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=$INDU&p=W&yr=1&mn=0&dy=0&id=p69359735342&a=270034212

    I hope you Stay Tuned - my "stuff " it has been very accurate for over 50 years . . .
