October 28th Daily Market Comments

The market trend remains wildly unexciting. The nature of this boring market still makes each individual stock chart the primary analytical factor. The biotech’s are still in a downtrend. Crude oil appears to have stabilized in the $50 area, not moving too much one way or the other from that level. Remaining in any positions should have compelling charts. Having a higher percentage in cash is not a bad strategy at this point.

October 27th Daily Market Comments

There is really no consensus between the Bulls and the Bears on a day-to-day basis. This is much more clearly illustrated from the graphics of candlestick charts, bullish candle one day, bearish candle the next day. There are very few bullish positions that are remaining in a consistent uptrend. The more profitable trades have been to the short side recently,SRPT, NLNK,SPWR. But the number of confirmed signals or patterns has diminished dramatically in this sideways movie market. There are times when both be in long and short is prudent. There are times when sitting in cash is prudent. This whipsaw action of the sideways market is making cash the logical strategy.

October 25th, 2016

The nature of the market has not changed, the indexes have a hard time moving consistently in one direction or another from day to day. Today’s indecisive trading continues to demonstrate the sideways mode of this market. Numerous stock charts also reveal noncommittal trends, merely moving sideways. Although the opportunities are fewer, candlestick charts still show which stocks remain the most bullish and which remain the most bearish.

October 24th Daily Market Comments

Today’s positive trading, although relatively strong in the Dow and S&P 500, are not yet showing any strong decisive candles/signals. However, the NASDAQ gapped up today confirming the buy signals that were developing at the T-line/50 day moving average last week. Today’s gap up is providing the prospects of a scoop pattern. This gives a little bit more credibility to the positive trading in the other indexes. But note that the indexes are still trading in the sideways channel. The indecisive nature of the market continues to make trading difficult but there are patterns that are producing good profits.

What could have been the beginning of some bullish investor sentiment, after yesterday’s gap up above the T-line forming a bullish flutter kicker signal, today’s trading brings the market trading back to its previous nature.

October 18th Daily Market Comments

Watch for the Netflix knee-jerk reaction in the markets. Note how many stocks have opened positive but immediately started trading lower. Also keep in mind that the nature of this market has been very indecisive. This should lead to some suspicion that there still is not any great bullish/bearish conviction in the markets. It will be important to see how the indexes close today, especially in reference to the T-line.
