July 16th Daily Market Comments

The underlying weakness of the market is now becoming more evident. Yesterday the Dow continue to maintain strength but today is showing selling along with the other indexes. The NASDAQ is trading below the T line, the S&P 500 needed to open positive and trade positive to maintain the uptrend but it is currently trading lower, below the T line. The short positions are working well.

July 15th Market Wrap-Up

The left/right combo, one of your strongest candlestick reversal signals formed in the NASDAQ, followed by a close below the T line is a strong indication there has been a change of investor sentiment. The T-line rule is very simple! The uptrend remains in progress until you see a candlestick sell signal and a close below the T line. Uptrending stocks such as NVDA, SAVA and FSLR are all good examples of when to take profits, witnessing sell signals and closing below the T-line. Utilizing the simple trading rules based upon human nature allows investors to maximize your profitability by knowing when candlestick signals indicate trends are starting and when trends are ending.

Simple scanning techniques identify the best bullish trades and the best of bearish trades. Another sign of when investor sentiment is starting to turn bearish is merely the simple numbers of better bearish trades being identified versus bullish trades. Over the past few weeks, even though the uptrend has been in progress in the market indexes, the nature of the market has been showing profit-taking/selling as it has reached the overbought condition. Simple logic built into candlestick analysis allows investors to anticipate with more accuracy when price movements are about to occur, either bullish or bearish.

The bearish left/right combo in the NASDAQ yesterday was the strongest sell signal of the indexes. The Dow and S&P 500 form Doji’s, indicating potential weakness in the overbought conditions. The short positions continue to work well. Long positions showing sell signals are increasing. Anything closing below the T line should be closed out.

The market conditions remain the same, the indexes are in a choppy slow uptrend, making continuing to hold long positions viable as long as a trade above the T line. However, numerous short positions continue to act well. Have both long and short positions in the portfolio.

Nothing has changed, the indexes continue to trade above the T-line. The Dow is trading lower, the NASDAQ is trading higher, the S&P 500 flat. No change of investor sentiment. The top criteria is analyzing the charts on individual stocks. The J-hook pattern and the fry pan bottom pattern are producing good results. Also, numerous short positions are acting well. Have both long and short positions in the portfolio.

 

Pattern Breakouts working July 12th Market Direction

Although the indexes continue to trade higher, there is one natural indication to have safety stops in place. The simple scanning process to find the strong candlestick signals and patterns are revealing much better short positions versus long positions. Better in the sense that there is a greater number of good short patterns developing. The simple logic allows the candlestick investor to be ready to close out long positions on any signs of sell signals/weakness and continue a slow process of adding short positions to the portfolio.

The J-hook pattern indicated in the Dow implies there is still more upside. The NASDAQ has not been able to close below the T line. However, the indexes are now in the overbought condition. This does not necessarily mean there is going to be a trend change, but it makes being more diligent for potential sell signals. When you take advantage of the consistent patterns created by human nature, you allow yourself to be better prepared to take profits and reverse portfolio directions. This continues to put the probabilities in your favor of being in the right direction of the markets.

The bearish engulfing signal in the Dow yesterday occurred at the same level the recent tops have occurred. Short positions are working very well. Any long positions performing are coming out of J-hook patterns. The indecisive nature of the trend of the markets make having both long and short positions in the portfolio.
