Truth is timeless: “Markets never change” – Jesse Livermore, 1923 The early masters, Livermore, Wyckoff and Loeb isolated themselves from the crowd and crowd thinking. None of them ever graduated high-school and yet they each became legends in the market. Their techniques have been time-tested.... More

    We were stopped out of our position in the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSEARCA:IWM) as indicated in previous posts. the IWM has started to sub-divide higher.

    Now on the sidelines we can see that the IWM may be in the final stages of a blow-off top.

    The daily chart below shows the signals that portend such a move:

    • The lower energy on each set of new highs
    • The increasing ascent angle of the trend lines
    • The potential for a bearish MACD divergence

    If this is a blow-off move, then we need to start to prepare for the appropriate entry signals.

    This is a short list:

    1. Some kind of significant positive news in the pre-market session
    2. A significant gap open higher above all levels of resistance
    3. Volume 2X - 3X or more than normal for the past 3 - 6 months
    4. Hourly reversal bar within the first two hours of the session
    5. Or, an end-of-day reversal (or outside down reversal) bar

    There is a chance that the IWM will gap lower at the next session and begin a new process of subdividing lower. If that happens, it will be addressed at that time.

    We currently have no open positions.
