What Leading Stocks Are Telling Us To Do

Contrary to what all the RA RA RA TV crowd has been saying now IS NOT the time to be buyers.

If now is not the time to do so then when was it? It was back in Late August when we were buying AAPL, NFLX, BIDU BEFORE they took off.

Today let's rewind back to late August. If you've been a free subscriber and following along with us you'll recall us pounding the table about buying in the face of fear (It's a common thread around here) when everyone and their brother was saying down down down we go.

Look at every chart below and look at where they were when we were buying in the face of fear. While we didn't buy everyone of them, they do give you a good example of why we think and do what we do around here at All About Trends.
