  • Is The Fed Altering Asset Prices? [View article]
    I have to think that the market is being altered, especially watching the price action in the Russell. We broke out of a massive top with strong resistance in the 1082-1090 range, and it destroyed it. That is NOT normal market operations, and it looks extremely suspect in my eyes. It may just be short squeezes, but I am out of this market until I see a more definitive direction, as I got pounded with the last move.

    Long WLL. The consolidation has been frustrating, but the prospects are just too good for this.

    But, based on past history...the odds would be in your favor of another rally

    No, that's true. Eventually, it will drop. Maybe at the 168 Fib extension? That puts us around $2140 or so?

  • Did Monday's Rally Change Much? [View article]
    Watch the Russell. When it hits the 200 day (around 1140 or so), time to jump back short.

  • The Day I Sold Everything [View article]
    Um, what else do you have to go by? If you are charting based on emotions and gut feelings, you need a new system. Are you an insider? Do you think all the financials of these companies are legit? All I have is price, and what price is doing. That is what the market says something is worth. You can scream about valuations all you want, but there won't be a downturn until the market says there is, and charts are all I have to measure that. So, yeah, um...

    So, if I am reading this right, KO looks toppy (which it doesn't) and you are feeling the jitters. So you sold everything. Got it.

    If the market is in an uptrend, I always thought that meant we were in a new bull market. When (if) are you planning on getting back in? What if earnings continue to improve, and the shale boom continues, and we continue to climb a wall of worry on cheap money?

  • Trouble Looming In The Market... [View article]
    Vitonious, what do you think happens in bull markets? We stay overbought for a long time. If this channel that the S&P has been in since 2012 breaks, then I will be short, but until then, enjoy the ride.

  • Trouble Looming In The Market... [View article]
    The IWM is range bound after a huge run up. We did break a TL, and the PE's are elevated in small caps, but other than that, the S&P is still super strong. Until the charts tell me otherwise (and they will), why fight the trend? What are you going to do when the Russell plays catch up and screams up to 1250? At that point, I agree, time to sell. Or if we break 1100 on a weekly chart. Bears keep trying to call a top, and the best shot they had was in the beginning of the year. Now, until the charts read otherwise, find the best stocks with the best charts, and stay long. It is a fool's errand trying to pick a top and short this the moment.

  • Sell In May? No Way! [View article]
    To me, the correction in the S&P has already occurred. Going sideways for 5 months (and down 10% in the RUT and NAS) seems to have set us up for another run higher.

    Great call. Or not. After consolidating for two years, the breakout that just happened is going to demolish shorts.
