BUY VNR, VANGUARD NATURAL RESOURCES, IF YOU DARE

|Includes: BZH, Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (VNR)

There was broad selling today. But our numbers suggest the selling is NOT significant -- and should be ending here.

TRENDS +36 today; +72 half-week. This is bullish.

BAROMETER and MOMENTUM are both up.

Last week we said VNR, VANGUARD NATURAL RESOURCES, was a SHORTSELL but that VNR was difficult to trade -- that we are holding long-term calls on VNR. The VNR began to move. It is now a Long-term Trumpet13 BUY. We wanted to look at VNR in 3 time dimensions: daily, weekly and monthly. Note in the daily and weekly charts how the (brown) PROP1 AVG suggests a change of trend long term.

The monthly chart has not transformed to positive yet.

We've been waiting for VNR to respond. Generally speaking, natural resource stock have bottomed and have been making new highs.

Here are some Trumpet 3 trades for today.

We are keeping our eye on the US Dollar (NYSEARCA:UUP) because this (and the FED) are the most likely COLD WATER TREATMENTS that could derail this market. UUP is bullish long-term -- but it just topped short-term.

We have been trying to find a way to keep readers up-to-date with our trades. We are trying something new today. Let's see if it works. Please be informed that we will focus on three portfolios this year (only one intermediate trade, Trumpet 3.5B) -- our reports will be copies of our active portfolios, including today's trades.
