Weekend Review and Watchlist

This week, rather than showing the S&P, which again finished at new highs, I’m going to show a weekly chart of the DAX. I shared this chart several times as a talking point prior to that big break of support in October, as it looked as if Europe could lead the US to the downside. …

Another market pullback over, another vicious V-shaped reversal in place, returning us to all time highs. This one clocked in at -7.4% on a closing basis. I have no doubt the next batch of top-callers are moving from make-up to the green room as we speak. For those that tried to call it this time …

In last week’s review I stated:- “Is that it? I have no idea. Certainly a correction of around 7% would fit very neatly into the typical range of corrections, and it would look very similar to the last test of the 200-day MA two years ago. The 200-day hasn’t started to roll over just yet, …

I met with several non-financial people this week, and it was interesting that the market became a subject of conversation, as it was more than the usual chit-chat because they know I’m involved in it, they actually wanted to ask about it, so it appears the market has become volatile enough that it has their …

This week, despite the volatility, it was looking as if I was going to go the whole week without any exits, and …

Weekend Review and Watchlist

An eventful week to say the least. Here’s a weekly chart of the $SPY since we last tested the 200-day MA in late 2012 (or in this case on a weekly, the 40-week MA). I’ve been studying this chart for the last 10 minutes trying to discern a pattern (other than the trend itself) and …

Volatility returned to the market this week, and how you reacted or interpreted it will depend greatly on your strategy and process. It may also depend on how you define ‘the market’, as from my longer-term view what is unfolding still appears to be a form of rotation rather than a full blown correction that many commentators …

I won’t go into a full top-down review here as there are others who do that far better than me, but I want to just briefly touch on the $SPY as from where I stand the pullback we saw in the S&P this week looked to be well contained. So far it looks as if …
