Topping pattern?

The market was doing well in the morning but at about 10 am MT it went into a spiraling selloff. After the fact, the media told us why. Great to know, now I can sleep better. But later on the market started recovering the loss. The market lost -1.34% intraday. It recovered a bit and Continue reading →

Global growth worries are back, OMG, everybody panic!

Market now down 30 points (-0.95%). Same old song. Media tell us that it was because of global growth worries. But that has been known issue for about a year now.

Market performed well given the economic fears but what’s next?

I think, today’s market performance was somewhat promising.

Or are investors no longer worried? Or are the worries actually a BS? Of course, we do not know answers Continue reading →

Are we stuck below resistance and heading lower?

The market seems to have a lack of strength (not enough buyers) at 2800 level to break and move higher. Fortunately, bears do not have enough power to push the market lower either. You can see that, so far, every selloff has been bought up; but this strength seems to be weakening every day. Unfortunately, Continue reading →
