Long/Short Equity, Special Situations, Currencies

Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2009

Michael J. Clark was born and raised in Sinclair, Wyoming. He is a poet, novelist, artist, historian, and market analyst. He began investing in 1985. He read ˜The Technical Analysis of Stock Trends" by Edwards and Magee and was hooked. From 1985-1987 he made astonishing gains in the stock market; and then stocks collapsed in 1987. Since then he has been attempting to 'solve the stock market', with many failures and some successes. The system he developed, called CGTS, Clark's Gate Timining System, is algorithm-based. What this fancy word means is that he proposes a series of necessary steps based on technical analysis propositions, which, when met, trigger trading signals. His four main trading systems are up a combined 31% for 2015. From his website: INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY Now that QE is supposedly ending, markets are already becoming more tradable, with opportunities to make money on both long and short trades at the same time. QE tended to make all boats rise, except precious metals. This made it more difficult to play the short side of the markets. Now, both sides seem to be more accessible to successful trades. This will also be more of a challenge for investors. The FED will have to eventually abandon the markets to their own destinies, and stop spending trillions to protect investors AND corporations from their mistakes. As this begins to happen (I am not sure it has happened yet), informed advice will become even more necessary for investors. Rules of Investment Rule #1: Never go against the trend. The majority is often wrong; but the minority is often wrong also. The sticky issue with this advice is at transition points, at which a Bull Market turns into a Bear Market or vice-versa. Big Money often anticipates and/or causes this transition. So pay attention to what Big Money is really doing, not what they say they are doing. Rule #2: You don’t need a broker who makes his living off of your money. Most brokerage firms buy a position in a stock quietly and slowly. When the stock has appreciated significantly they add the stock to their buy recommendations. Then they begin selling their position while they are encouraging their clients to buy the stock. Most firms never issue sell recommendations. If they do, beware: they are probably trying to buy your stock after a huge sell-off. Rule #3: Watch your own emotions because they are often signaling something. When fear turns to greed and visions of unlimited wealth, we are probably near a top in a trade and we should get ready to sell. When hope and denial turn to fear and visions of an unlimited loss, we are probably approaching a bottom in a trade. (See Rule #1 however.) Rule #4: Trade with a system to complement your gut reactions. Follow the system no matter what, even if it means taking a loss. Don’t get lazy with your money and sink into denial. Use a system to help you refrain from 'playing a hunch'. Rule #5: HEDGE YOUR PORTFOLIO AGAINST LOSSES. How does one do this? By having a balanced portfolio of long and short positions. But have a system that signals both long and short positions, and keep your portfolio balanced around 50% long and 50% short. This may seem to contradict Rule #1. It does not. When something is in a long trend, something else is in a short trend. Find what is long and what is short. If stocks are long, gold or oil may be short. Use ETFs and options to help establish this portfolio balance. Our system gives trading signals every day for both long and short positions.

Mixed Market. Mixed Specialty stocks we follow.

GBTC. Here comes 57.94.

NMM. Here comes 19.71.

EMAN: here comes 4.22.

CLSK. Hard to notice all this, but C1=2 from C1=0 is a backdoor BUY Signal. MOMO has bottomed. PROP1 TREND (red, top pane) is bullish. CLSK seems to have weathered the selling. 39.05 RESISTANCE again and then 42.12 coming.

Look at MOMO C3 bottoming with C3=2, which is usually marrks a TRADING BOTTOM.

BLNK Look how the stock fell back and touched SUPPORT at 43.78 and then immediately turned back up. Weak sellers.

MOMO says: SWINGING GATE. Should get a nice bounce up from here. The SELLERS are being vanquished. 78.99 next.

We are doing well. Not much in the way of new trades today, a couple.





RP: RP_2_9_21.xlsx



GORO, BUY, GOLD RESOURCES, M2F ALT PALIN. We have both a gold SHORT and a gold LONG. Gold is confused and confusing.

We did have a lot of BIG GAINERS in our database.

Quite a few micro-biotechnology appear to be on the list.

CGTS DIAGNOSTICS: continuing bullishness. Top two CROSSOVERS must turn to RED before we sell.


Early-Warning Signs: all bullish.

Intermediate picture: BULLISH


Watch C1=1 % (brown below), UDOW purple below.

We are keepiing an eye on PROP1 TREND. These stocks changed PROP1 TREND (RED) this week. C3 is blue.

BULLISH when PROP1 TREND is above zero (up).

We wanted to honor Tom Brady for his performance this year. And over the years. No doubt, his greatness was proven this year. He carried New England; New England did not carry him. His will to win is exceptional. Did he not prove he is the best QB ever?

Symbolism, always looking for symbolism. The year of the BLACK QUARTERBACK? A lot of great young black qbs in the NFL. But four white qb winnerrs in the quarter-finals: Brady, Rogers; Mayfield; Henne (backup for Mahomes, injured). Then Brady and Mahomes head-to-head. Brady wins.

The Day-Cycle is here. The Day is winning. Be patient. Let it unfold.

This gamma gravity is getting silly, isn't it? The BEARS want the negative to win; that is their tragedy.

Now Peter Schiff is telling us what the market smells like? He has been telling us what it looks like (and he has been wrong about that) for about a decade. Now he knows what it smells like. Both Schiffs should be CANCELLED.

Ok; let's all worry. 1 - 2 - 3...worry.

If I am right about history moving in 36 year cycles, and the new GROWTH Cycle has just begun, then what is our biggest worry, really? Crashes and corrections? Well, yes. Markets can still crash (1987) and correct.

My argument is that the Night-Cycle Negative Factor is about to be sent back to hell. The Spring Season in History denotes the Day-Cycle in Heaven and the Shadow Force gone, the CRITIC gone.

History, this Paradise Cycle corresponds to these times (years) rrin history. The Female Principle (the CRITICAL Nature) is pregnant and traditional and there is peace in the kingdom.

Is this possible?

God bless America. Let us save her from ourselves.
