Investor and Trader As investor I'm deeply influenced by Dow Theory. I focus on the primary trend (1-2 years). My trading is short-term based (avg trade duration 4-5 days).

  • Dow Theory Update For January 7: Stocks Well Bid Today But Fail To Make Higher Highs  0 comments
    Jan 7, 2014 4:30 PM | about stocks: SPY, DIA, IYT, GLD, SLV, GDX, SIL
    And Trends remain unchanged

    If you are interested in reading the 2013 Dow Theory review please go here. You'll see that we tended to be on the right side of the market most of the time.

    US stocks

    The SPY, Industrials and the Transports closed up. However, the 12/31 closing highs remain unbroken.

    The primary trend is bullish, as explained here, and more in-depth here.

    The primary trend was reconfirmed as bullish on October 17th and November 13th, for the reasons given here and here.

    Gold and Silver

    SLV and GLD closed down. For the reasons I explained here, and more recently here, I feel the primary trend remains bearish. Here I analyzed the primary bear market signal given on December 20, 2012. The primary trend was reconfirmed bearish, as explained here. The secondary trend is bullish (secondary reaction against the primary bearish trend), as explained here.

    As to the gold and silver miners ETFs, SIL closed down, and GDX closed up. The primary trend is bearish, as was profusely explained here and here. Likewise, the secondary trend is bearish.

    Sincerely,

    The Dow Theorist
