February 15th Daily Market Comments

The NASDAQ continues to be the strongest index with Today’s gap up after yesterday’s close well above the T-line. The other indexes are also showing strength but with indecisive trading after they have opened. The uptrend is now considered back in progress as long as the indexes remain above the T-line but expect some profit-taking after the bullish reversal signal of a week ago. Stay predominantly long but be aware there may be some profit-taking today and tomorrow, going into the long weekend.

The knee-jerk selling on the open as disappeared. The NASDAQ is currently trading above the T-line, the other indexes are just nudging the T-line. It will be important to see whether all the indexes can get above the T-line Today to confirm the large hammer type signals that occurred on Friday. Any long positions still require the confirmation of the markets closing above the T-line or at the high end of their trading range Today. The big stocks, AMZN, AAPL NVDA are all trading higher, indicating bullish pressure is still in the markets.

Today’s lack of bullish confirmation in the markets continue to illustrate the indecisive nature of the market. However, although the markets are trading lower, the indexes are trading above where they opened or at the high end of their trading range. This is why we recommend Trend Analysis.

Today’s positive trading is indicating a possible basing area in the markets. A reversal requires strength going into the close. Currently, the Dow is trading at where it opened after trading higher, demonstrating the lack of bullish follow-through so far today. Any established positions today still warrant being ready to close them back out immediately if the individual stock charts and the market indexes show weakness. This is why we recommend Trend Analysis.

Be careful, although the markets are trading positive today, they are not trading above where they opened. Unless the markets can produce convincing bullish Harami’s Today, the downtrend is still in progress. It is still early in the day, not unusual to see the initial bounce after a big selling day. Remember, candlestick signals are created by where prices open and close. Nothing yet has indicated the Bulls are able to take control. Stay predominantly short until there is convincing bullish signals.

February 8th Daily Market Comments

Yesterday, the market indexes demonstrated a Doji type day, a day of indecision while still trading below the T-line and the 50 day moving average. The Doji rule made it very easy to anticipate the direction of today’s trading. If the markets continue to show the lack of strength to get them above the 50 day moving average and/or the T-line, it will be assumed the downtrend remains in progress until the next major reversal signal. Short positions need to be maintained as long as they do not close above the T-line. Any long positions established in the next day or so requires continued confirmation of trading bullish.

February 7th Daily Market Comments

There were numerous bullish signals yesterday, many bullish engulfing signals and piercing signals. Today there is a lot of follow-through, bouncing prices back up toward T-line’s. But be careful, the T-line remains a very relevant indicator for the confirmation of price moves back in a positive direction. After severe selling in the markets and individual stocks, it will not be unusual to see some waffling below the T-line for the next few days. Any bullish trades placed today should be done with the anticipation of moving back out of those trades very quickly if the buying is not maintained. Numerous short positions should have been covered today with the confirmation of bullish reversal signals yesterday. Remain nimble until the indecisive nature of the market establishes more upside or whether this is merely a quick bounce.
