Identifying TOP's and BOTTOM's of the General Market - Called Inflection Points

The following is my List of the Dow Jones Sectors and Industry Groups that I spend a great deal of time with, each and every day. Yes, as a Financial Analyst and Asset Manager this is part of what I do on behalf of my own financial affairs and those of my Clients.

My logo is: "Investing Wisely."

I have proven without doubt that it is an excellent method of Identifying the Strongest as well as the Weakest Sectors and Industry Groups and then Identifying the Strongest as well as the Weakest Component Companies with-in each. Each of the below Sectors * (are in bold and marked with an asterisk * - see my below list ) and Industry Groups as well as their Component Companies that are "In-between" the Strongest and the Weakest" are what I call "Also Rans." Investors do not seem to understand that in order to Profit, you have to Invest is the Strongest in Bullish Cycles or Invest in the Weakest in Bearish Cycles. In Bearish Cycles - - Cash - - is a wonderful and safe harbor. Think about that seriously, if you will.

I have developed a very profitable Methodology for doing what I call: "IDing."

IDing is simple a procedure or process of Separating the currently "Favorable" from the "Unfavorable" is how I go about making money, consistently in the Stock Market.

My Fundamental - Valuations focus, be it in a Bullish Cycle is to use the, then current, top 10 or so Industry Groups and for a Bearish the Weakest, then current, bottom 10 or so Industry Groups. There are always excellent and conservative Companies to choose from. It should be clear that using this Methodology also leads me to identify the best possible ETFs for the current General Market Condition. The "choices" I make are based on over 50 years of experience with an emphasis on the Risk / Reward Ratio and Probability of Profiting.

I hope you note my use of the work "current" or "currently." All these Sectors / Industry Groups and yes, Companies and ETFs - Cycle or Rotate into Favor, back out of Favor and back into Favor over time. It is critical that you know what is and is not "currently" Favorable. I Do!

My Technical Analysis is a bit Unique but very Accurate. The below Symbols work well with You will have to make modifications if you use or from Worden. For BarCharts you simple use the last two letters from the below Symbols but use ($DSxx) xx represents the last two letters from the below Symbols. For Worden you just drop the Dollar Sign ($) and use the six letters from the below Symbols. I hope you have fun checking this out with the use of Graphics and Charts. They definitely support my Fundamental work / analytics.


I simple want the lowest Risk Investments with the Highest Probability of Profit. You will find I am very good at this task. I think it is called: Getting the biggest Bang for my Investment Bucks?
