February 4th Daily Market Comments

Today's positive trading, confirming the bullish Harami of yesterday in the Dow and the S&P 500, unless experiencing strong selling before the end of the day, is demonstrating that the trading channel is a very slow uptrend bobbing along the T-line.

January 29th Daily Market Comments

The strength in the Dow and the S&P 500, if maintained today, what illustrate the top of the trading range of the past few days has now been breached.

Having both long and short positions in the portfolio is still prudent but obviously if the bullish strength continues into the close, any short positions that are showing reversals should be lightened up and/or closed. … [Read More...]
