Weekly Watch List January 24th-28th 2022

If you are feeling anxiety about the current market, that means you are probably positioned incorrectly in your trading. This is from the voice of experience! Knowing that candlestick signals and patterns produce high probability results, feeling anxiety means you are not doing what the candlestick charts are telling you to do. This reality check is what has solidified the acknowledgment of what the candlestick signals are telling us at the T-line. Witnessing candlestick sell signals, in the overbought conditions, in the indexes, and witnessing closes below the T-line cuts through the emotional hopefulness that long positions are going to continue to move in an upward direction. As the Japanese rice traders profess, let the markets tell you what the markets are doing. Visual confirmation that the bears are starting to take control allows the candlestick investor to move from long positions to short positions, eliminating the emotional decisions. The T line is one of your most effective trend analytical tools. The T-line truisms are extremely high probability confirmations of bullish trends or bearish trends. Mark your calendars!
