January 19th Daily Market Comments

The markets are still in a wait and see mode. The Dow is trading slightly lower, the NASDAQ is relatively flat, the S&P 500 relatively flat, but the transportation index is up strong today. This lack of direction in the market is continuing to allow candlestick patterns to work effectively, i.e.MBLY and KMT J-hook patterns. Continue to stay predominantly long but there are still good short positions available, PIR.

January 18th Daily Market Comments

The NASDAQ trading positive, the Dow trading negative, neither with any great resiliency, indicating there is no major change of investor sentiment. This still implies that each stocks/sector is still the predominant analysis. Gold stocks continue their uptrends, still in a scoop pattern slingshot uptrend. The fact that there is no major movement in the market in general continues to make the T-line the predominant trend factor.

January 17th Daily Market Comments

Although the markets are trading lower today, they are trading indecisively.  The NASDAQ is still above the T-line, the S&P 500 right on the T-line, and the Dow trading just below the T-line. Without any major change of investor sentiment, strong chart patterns are still acting strong. The T-line remains a relevant factor when analyzing the current trend.

January 13th Daily Market Comments

The NASDAQ continues to show good solid uptrending. The Dow and S&P 500 remain consistently at the T-line area. There is no signs of bearishness in this market, expect a stable/uptrending market to continue. This is allowing the strong candlestick patterns such as frypan bottoms to continue to produce profits, i.e. KLIC and PAH. The biotech sector remains strong. Stay predominantly strong with long positions being targeted to the strong sectors.

January 11th Daily Market Comments

It has been pointed out by a few new members that the big rally since election day, which had produced some very big profits because of the strong up move was not necessarily conclusive that there was any benefit to candlestick signals. But the revelation that strong profits are still being made even when the market has gone into a flat stage was more indicative of the information revealed in candlestick signals and patterns. This should be the underlying conclusion when understanding the benefits of candlestick signals.

January 10th Daily Market Comments

The early selling in the Dow and S&P 500 continues to be offset by the slow consistent buying in the NASDAQ. Now with all the indexes trading positive, it clearly demonstrates there is not yet any dramatic change of investor sentiment, the slow bullish uptrend remains in progress. This allows the strong candlestick charts to continue to perform without the influence of any strong bearish sentiment participating in the overall market. Strong candlestick bullish patterns continue to produce good profitable trades.

January 9th Daily Market Comments

Sectors are the main factors during this market trend. That is clearly illustrated by the fact that the Dow is down and the NASDAQ is trading positive. There is no change of investor sentiment in the overall market. But there are specific sectors that are showing strength. The easy candlestick scanning techniques allows investors to pinpoint which sectors are the strongest bullish sectors and which are the strongest bearish sectors.
