What happened the week ending 2/11

When you want to forget about all the headlines and hype of the talking heads I always use a chart showing the price of the Value Line Index ( 1700 stocks) vs. the 20, 50 & 100 HOUR moving averages and the Trend Spotter (tm) and my reality check. You can run this anytime on Barchart using the custom chart feature.
